    Description

    What's the first rule of running a gym by and for combat vets? Enjoy the scorching hot scenery, but get your kicks somewhere else.

    Never mind that my cousin-slash-business partner ignores that rule every chance he gets. I don't ignore it. Ever. And frankly, between Grindr, and living in one of the gayest cities in America, it's not exactly a hardship.

    Hell, it's so easy, I can do it on one leg.

    That is, until a pair of blue eyes, swimming with vulnerability, shows up at my door, looking for a job. He's too skinny, too mouthy, and way too young for the likes of me, but he pings that protector instinct in me - hard.

    I want to fix whatever put that lost look in his eyes, but to manage that, I'd have to do the one thing I said I'd never do.

    Break my own rules.

    Sanctuary is an MM military romance, featuring hurt-comfort, found family, and a gym full of ripped men, wearing tight shorts, and lifting heavy objects.

    This is the first audiobook in the Wrecked series. The characters - Evie, Scout, Jake and Jean-Pierre - first appear in Scout and the Lavender Girl, written under my pen name, K.C. Littleton.

    100%

    I absolutely love Sanctuary. I first read it over a year ago and am so happy it's available in the audible format now. Is it all little over the top at times with the snark? Absolutely! Do I love that about this book? 100%! John Solo does an amazing job with this book. He isn't just reading the book but bringing these characters to life so you can feel the emotions that Kelly poured onto the page. I can't wait for more!

    Superb story!

    I love this series! It centers around a gym for combat vets, many of whom have prosthesis and/or mental conditions. The owners are also gay, so there is an open atmosphere of acceptance. Enter Elijah. He desperately needs a job, and is one of the best employees ever, but he is hiding what he feels as a shameful secret. Nick has his ultra strict regime and need to control, along with some post trauma stuff to deal with. Two people who hide pieces of themselves until sh1t hits the fan and then a HEA. A fantastic start to why is a well crafted and highly enjoyable series. The characters are amazingly 3D with foibles like real people.

    5 stars

    I’m a former military brat and current military spouse. I spent over a decade as a medical editor in rehabilitation, which included a focus on prosthetics. I hesitated over reading Sanctuary because I know I can be picky about books with either of those themes, much less combined. I’m so glad I decided to dive in; I ended up binge-reading this entire series in a single weekend.

    I instantly fell in love with Nick and Elijah, along with the fantastic cast of supporting characters that ensure the central pairing doesn’t exist in a vacuum. There’s nothing better than found family, especially when everyone is open and supportive about their own and others’ sexualities.

    A very different sort of sparks flew at this couple’s initial meeting. This usually means a roller-coaster of a ride to get to the happily ever after, and this book was no exception to that rule. I could quibble about the lack of communication between the men at certain points in their relationship, but both had reasons to hold back until external elements forced them into full honesty.

    Even better, the ending isn’t really an ending because I still get to check in on these characters throughout the rest of the series. I wish I could be a client at Wrecked, and not just because of all the hot guys! Not only is the romance in this book heartwarming, but also the gym’s excellent vibe that comes across so clearly in Fox’s writing.

    Love this book

    I really love this world of Kelly’s, and I really enjoy this book in particular. Their dynamic is unique and special and funny and a little dramatic. Unfortunately I am not a fan of John for these characters or series. John Solo works for certain books, but not this one.

    Perfect Narration to an Incredible Story

    I have read Sanctuary too many times to count so I was very excited to give the audio book a try. John Solo was the perfect choice to narrate Nick and Elijah’s story. The way he captured their unique voices, and even gave all the side characters their own voice really elevated the audio book. Nick is a former Navy Seal, and gym owner. He has a rule about not looking up with employees but he just can resist Nick. Nick is an army vet trying to get back on his feet after going through some person struggles. He’s a hard worker and loves his job at the gym. He is also so drawn to Nick and can’t resist him. Their relationship is beautiful and John Soli literally gave me chills multiple times during the story. I will definitely be listening to this book again and again.

    I did get a free copy of this audio book but that did not influence my review.

    Audio lived up to the book

    I got Sanctuary as an arc and loved it, have reread a couple of times, so I was wary about the audio. John Solo knocks it out of the park, though, and captures all the characters, from Nick and Elijah to Jean-Pierre, Scout, and Evie. There's a lot of snark and humor in the book, and John voices all of that with ease. He does pretty well on the sex scenes, too!

    Definitely recommend, and can't wait for the next one to be on audio!

    A Reread for Sure

    Sanctuary was the first book I read by Kelly Fox. What a great introduction to a quirky and loving cast of characters.

    Combat veteran Nick Martinez is half-owner of a gym for vets called Wrecked. Grouchy Nick has his own guilt to deal with and when beautiful but too-thin Elijah walks in for a job interview Nick is positive he's not going to hire Elijah. During the interview Nick throws him a challenge he's sure to fail. Elijah is desperate enough for the job to pull it off. Elijah has his own secrets though.

    The push and pull between these two is sweet. And when they finally come together the heat is off the charts.

    John Solo does his usual excellent job narrating this story with clear voices and just enough inflection to make the characters come alive. This is definitely on my reread/relisten list.

    4.5 stars of romance, humor and angst!

    Narration: John Solo isn’t my favorite narrator, but I think he did a pretty darn good job with this book. He really did Elijah’s character justice. His comedic timing is on point and he conveys a lot of emotion through his voice. It definitely felt like a performance rather than a reading of the book.

    Story: I’m reviewing this book after listening to the audio (2 years after my initial read through.)

    This was the first MM book I read by Kelly Fox and I love it. (My first book was Kelly’s FF book Scout and the Lavender Girl under a different pen name which I highly recommend.) Kelly has a distinct style of writing and a great sense of humor, but what really stands out is how she calls out toxic masculinity and writes men who do things like express their emotions and see therapists. And the found family? Chef’s kiss!

    In Sanctuary, Elijah is struggling to rebuild his life after leaving the Army and finding the life he thought he’d return to in shambles. Nick is living the status quo, managing his queer friendly gym in the heart of Austin and avoiding any kind of serious relationship. Elijah applied for a job at Nick’s gym and things start to change for the better.

    While these guys eventually find their way to a loving romantic relationship, it takes a little while to get there. Nick is incredibly stubborn and cynical, while Elijah is just trying to survive. So yeah, I didn’t initially like Nick. Elijah sounds like a total sweetheart! How could you be rude to him?? But of course it’s all misunderstandings (thankfully they’re not dragged out, Nick is seriously just that stubborn) and Nick honestly sucks at expressing himself. There are plenty of spicy times between these two, but not overly so and it fits their relationship. They have a bit of a hate/love thing going on at the start.

    I also really loved all the side characters, especially Roly (and I’ve already read his book and fell even more in love with his character.)

    I am such a fan of this author, and her writing just gets better and better with each book. If you find this book to be just ok, I urge you to keep reading her books. She’s absolutely a one-click author for me.
