The Only Easy Day (Sanctuary #2)
One dead girl, one scared witness, and two men trained as Navy SEALs. Whether searching for justice or revenge, the final showdown between them is the same—explosive.
Dale MacIntyre, former Navy SEAL, works for Sanctuary. He's the acting handler for a member of the Bullen family's inner circle. He's close to obtaining the evidence he need...more
I've read a couple of great books lately
So maybe that's why I feel this way
This book, like the first one, had me almost asleep
So I really can't say that it was more than okay
I almost want to say that the book didn't get a fair chance because I've just read some awesome books but a book should be able to engage me no matter what and this book didn't do that.
RJ Scott seems to have a knack
For writing characters that I find boring
Military men usually make me...more
There is a good amount of back story on the two MC's and the action scenes are written well. The heroes don't actually meet until 50% into the story and in a novella sized book...more
Plot-wise I liked this book much better, than its prequel, I've been so engrossed in the story during the first part, I almost didn't notice that there's still no romantic development whatsoever (although I always prefer romance driven books).
But! When the romance started, unfortunately I didn't like it at all. More specifically I didn't like Joseph and his interactions with Nik, Morgan and Dale. I liked him as an individual character at first, but then he started being so Mary S...more
It's a mostly minor irritation, actually, but the SEAL worship is over the top here. The way RJ Scott writes them, Navy SEALs are like unicorns. Unicorns that can kill you, that is. With a single glance. Not even a glance. A half glance. They're just epic and awesome, you know? Too cool. OMG....more
I wanted to like this book but didn’t. I just can’t get behind a book when I don’t like the MCs. Period. I really liked Dale from Guarding Morgan and was excited to read his story until R.J. Scott proceeded to turn the yummy alpha Dale into a pansy. She took a totally respectable former SEAL and turned him into an “old” (at 29???), out-of-shape, wannabe who lusts after Joseph. What a waste! Then ... to add insult to injury, I just couldn't connect to Joseph. He was a cold-hearted, arrog...more

This is slightly different from what I am used to from R.J. Scott but it is no less impressive. Dale may be an ex-Navy Seal but a horrific incident in his past has jaded him to the Seals and he has no faith in them. Joseph is an active Navy Seal and he wants to find his sisters killer but when he finds brick walls thrown up in his way he is determined to get to the truth even if he has to tear them down with h...more
Though the premise of Joseph investigating on his own required some suspension of disbelief, particularly on the part of his helpful intelligence team in the background. I also found the blurb a little misleading, as I thought Dale didn't quite qualify as an ex SEAL, having quit after the horrendous events on his very first mission. Likely a matter of definition. As a character, I liked...more
This book picked up pretty much where Guarding Morgan left off. We meet the murdered girl's step-brother, Joseph Kinnon, an active navy SEAL. He is just back from a mission and learns that Elizabeth is dead. Joseph begins his own investigation into Elizabeth's murder with the help of his SEAL team. Dale MacIntyre is an ex SEAL now working for Sanctuary in trying to get enough evidence to bring the Bullen's down. Dale has been secretl...more
Dale MacIntyre, former Navy SEAL, works for Sanctuary. He's the acting handler for a member of the Bullen family's inner circle. He's close to obtaining the evidence he needs to prove Elisabeth Costain's death was ordered by them... until someone gets in his way.
Joseph Kinnon, active Navy SEAL, is back on US soil for the first time in months, and he's told the tragic news that his stepsister is dead, gunned down in an alley by an unknown assailant. He's determined to find out who murdered her.
Fantastic Plot, plenty action to keep you very entertained..romance the most boring I ever read,shocking sex scenes.
If you are looking for a very good suspense story, this is highly recommended.
Although, if you are looking for a great M/M love story..I'm afraid this is definitely not the one for you.
4.5 Stars, Okay Bottom line~The Book
♥ The Ending/A Sweet Sweet Promise Sealed with a Kiss~Yum!
I enjoyed this more than the first one. Less sex and more action. Kinda surprised I'm happy about that. I liked Dale and Joseph and how they were both dominant SEALs and how the story carried over from the first book. But the end? I'm not into instant love and wtf. Joseph has to leave and it ends. Hopefully their story carries on in the next book.
This series, if you like action/adventure, suspense/mystery, as well as romance, in this case, hot alpha male, you will probably enjoy this series!

I found this book more enjoyable than the first book in the series and actually finished reading the story in ~3hrs. I was a bit dissatisfied with how it went with Dale and Joseph and I hope they show up more in the future books. The plot was okay, readers get to read about Joseph being hell bent on finding out why his step-sister was murdered.
Joseph came off pretty arrogant to me and I wasn't sure I wanted him making the moves on Dale...it turned out well though and it was interesting...more

Joseph and Dale were very easy characters to get into. I loved both personalities and they had a lot of chemistry. They started out as sort of enemies and it grew into lust, and e...more
The Only Easy Day
Navy Seal Joseph Kinnon has just returned from a covert mission to find his commander waiting with tragic news, his stepsister has been murdered. The facts surrounding the case are slim and the media are painting an inaccurate and damaging portrait of the dead girl. Grief stricken and determined to redeem his stepsister's reputation, Kinnon takes leave and heads to Albany, New York for answers and retribution.
Dale MacIntyre, ex-Navy Seal, now works for Sanctuar...more
Really well written, the suspense and mystery is great, and I enjoyed the involvement with characters from the first book.
There wasn't much romance....considering their jobs though, I think the involvement and outcome is realistic. More of a Happy-for-Now ending...
I'm hoping that I'll get an update on them in the next book and they will get their deserved Happily-Ever-After in the end.
I really liked the first book and started with this one right away. After finishing it in one sitting I have to say, the suspense part of the story works very well and is the reason for me to now start the third book. However, I have to say, the romance part in this book fell short for me.There was no chemistry between Joseph and Dale for me whatsoever and besides a BJ on the way there was no trace of connection, not to think of love, but...more
I am in awe that people read my writing and thank you all for taking the time to read, rate and review. Rj xxxxx
