Seeking Sanctuary, Men of Fairlake By: Romeo Alexander Narrated by: Michael Dean

"An emotional story," Seeking Sanctuary is one of the most recent listens from our reviewer, Lesetiger.

From the blurb:

I lost him once. I won’t let him be taken from me again without a fight.

The voice on the other end of the line is one I’d given up all hope of ever hearing again…Devin.

As a boy, I loved him like a brother. As a man, my feelings are far from brotherly. Despite the years apart, everything in me aches to hold him, touch him, taste him. Is it possible he feels the same?

Right now, he’s hurting, and I swore I’d help. He needs me, but as I watch over him, I feel so helpless. Drugs have stolen so much of his life, and as they work their way out of his system, I vow never to let anyone or anything hurt him again.

If only that was a promise I could keep.

But Devin’s past comes back with a vengeance, and this time, I’m not going to sit back and wait. This time, I’ll do whatever it takes to get him back where he belongs.

In my arms and in my bed. Forever.

Get ready for a heart-wrenching ride with Seeking Sanctuary. It has a blend of captivating themes, including friends-to-lovers, hurt/comfort, and second chance romance. But be warned: explicit violence, drug abuse, and abduction are part of the story. Proceed with caution and check the foreword for a full list of triggers. Don't miss this unique and compelling storyline that will have you rooting for the characters!

Lesetiger's Review:

Have I mentioned that I love the Men of Fairlake series? So I was really looking forward to Seeking Sanctuary and I was not disappointed. Romeo Alexander has once again written an emotional and exciting story that had me hooked from the start. He has a wonderful writing style that allowed me as a listener to become immersed in the story very quickly.

Chase and Devin were best friends when Devin left town and the two didn't hear from each other for years. When Devin needs help on short notice, Chase is there, of course. And it's not easy, because Devin is a shadow of his former self due to drug abuse. 

I really liked both of these guys, they are likable, each in their own way and they take on the fight against drugs. This is tough and was portrayed realistically by the author and was not angsty either. And just like in real life, there were ups and downs.

What I also really liked was the strong emotional bond between the two. As a reader, you could feel the tension between them and it was super to watch Chase and Devin's relationship grow stronger and stronger. Towards the end, the author kicked it up a notch in terms of suspense. Wow. A very entertaining and enjoyable book.

Michael Dean is a fantastic narrator who did another great job here. He gave each character an individual voice that I as a listener could immediately relate to, and he does an incredible job of portraying the emotions of the protagonists, bringing the book to life. I'm really looking forward to the next volume!
