BLOG TOUR & REVIEW - Safe Haven by Sheri Lyn

Add to Goodreads

Nothing in Phoenix’s life ever went right. He never knew where his next meal would come from or if he would be safe going home at night. Desperate to escape, he trusts the wrong person. A different kind of evil wrapped in hope led him into the claws of a prison he might not survive. 

Gryphon took a chance on a new life and ended up a captive. To his shock, he wasn’t alone. Twenty boys experimented on physically and mentally, few would ever see the light of day again. 

A family forged in the fires of hell. Escape came, but at the price of losing more of themselves than they realized. They must depend on each other and new friends. No-one is expecting to find love, but love may find them anyway. 

Their mission is clear: Find the people who did this to them and destroy them. 

But some missions aren't always so cut and dry...

5 out of 5 (exceptional)


I guess I should give a bit more than that though. The book starts with a 17-year-old boy called AJ. He is putting himself through school, with no support from his so called mother apart from when she lets up on the abuse. He has the support of some of his teachers, but is so solitary that he just doesn't see the amount of people around him who want to help. He gets an offer to join a secret branch of the military and takes it, due to circumstances beyond his control. Skip forward 17 years.

Nix and Gryph are in a small, podunk kind of town, following leads. Through one thing and another, their story comes out - who they are, what they have survived, what they are doing now. This is a mystery, simple as that. It is a stomach-churning, funny, story that had me in tears whenever the reasons for the names were given. 

This is the first book in the Safe Haven series so please don't expect to get all your answers here. There are plenty of questions left when the story is over, but overall, I was left with a major feeling of satisfaction that they are at least headed in the right direction. 

A friends-to-lovers story, I loved the slow burn between these two, plus the reactions from everyone else. With lots of brilliant characters to choose from, these guys will make you weep, and smile, and laugh. 

With a slight twist of the paranormal, this is a M/M Mystery Romance that I have no hesitation in recommending.

* I received this book from Wickedly Innocent Promotions in return for a fair and honest review. *

Hi I'm Sheri Lyn. I live in Florida with the love of my life, my dog Koda a Corgi/Dwarf Chow mix. I love living here and couldn't imagine living anywhere else. 

I just started my journey into the indie book world. I have books in several genres in the works. I'm an avid reader who kept dreaming of a story that wanted to be told and that's where my first book was born.

When I'm not reading or proofing, I'm at the evil day job where my sanity is tested on a daily basis. My sarcastic quips can provide a much needed break until I can return home to Koda and books, my two joys.
