Reviewer:  Lisa

Review:  Each book in the Sanctuary collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. 

As a reader I have several favorite authors and stories that I collect.  Although I favor paranormal romances, I will say that R.J. Scott is one of my ultimate favorite contemporary writers of all time.  The story or stories are intriguing and fascinating with the way they are told.  The characters all have their own little way of making you connect with them.  They go from being bold to shy, hard, difficult and sometime pretty strange I would say.  There is an amount of danger in their world that will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat.  The lust also seems to be off the charts sometimes, although in my mind, maybe a bit too eager and fast in some cases.  It doesn’t take away from the story though.

This is the final book in this amazing series, and I have to say that I am not really pleased to see that it is coming to an end.  However it did have a great run.  With this I had to go back and read the previous books to remember each character and their place in the story.  Brandon is a very unique type of guy.  He reminds me of a computer himself sometimes.  He sees the world as numbers and patterns.  Even a pattern on a curtain could drive him crazy.  Brandon and his best friends decided to bring down one of the deadliest men, by going undercover.  It had not worked the way they had thought and now Brandon was the only one left alive.  Sanctuary steps in and keeps him and his sister’s safe, but Brandon has other ideas.

Daniel is going to keep Brandon safe, even if it gets him killed.  More than likely it might want to make him commit murder in the end.  He knows Brandon is not being truthful, but damn he does have a fine ass.  He just has to get Brandon to let him in, because well if you really want to know more, read the book.

There are a bit of quirks to this story that will definitely keep your attention.  I also loved the little twists to it.  The ending really caught my attention, wished I knew what type of snake it was.  I had a lot of fun reading this and can’t wait to see what new stories this amazing author has to come. 

I would definitely recommend this book to everyone who loves a bit of suspense, mystery and danger, not to mention sexy men who carry guns.

R.J. Scott & V.L. Locey

Can Tennant show Jared that age is just a number, and that love is all that matters? 

The Rowe Brothers are famous hockey hotshots, but as the youngest of the trio, Tennant has always had to play against his brothers’ reputations. To get out of their shadows, and against their advice, he accepts a trade to the Harrisburg Railers, where he runs into Jared Madsen. Mads is an old family friend and his brother’s one-time teammate. Mads is Tennant’s new coach. And Mads is the sexiest thing he’s ever laid eyes on.

Jared Madsen’s hockey career was cut short by a fault in his heart, but coaching keeps him close to the game. When Ten is traded to the team, his carefully organized world is thrown into chaos. Nine years his junior and his best friend’s brother, he knows Ten is strictly off-limits, but as soon as he sees Ten’s moves, on and off the ice, he knows that his heart could get him into trouble again.
