Full Circle is the fifth installment in the Sanctuary by R.J. Scott. This time around we got Manny a guy who is always there, and has been in all of the Sanctuary books in some way. With this book we get another Dale and Joseph with a bit of extra cuteness that was really sweet to see. Normally a series gets boring around this point, but I am still begging for more books and to get more of the mystery.

Josh and Manny were the typical couple. At first it was hard to see how they would get together

This final book in the tearing down of the Bullen empire was a bit of a surprise. Manny is the computer genius of Sanctuary and like a brother to Jake. Jake and Manny have been keeping a secret for eight years now. Manny is really more than a computer geek, he is part of what was a big crime family in California. Both Josh Headley and his mother are in a locked down Sanctuary safe house so why is Manny watching Josh jumping the wall
I actually liked this a lot better than all the other books in the series. The characters aren't actually kept in a safe house for a majority of the book doing nothing (well it doesn't feel like it anyway). Manny goes out to do field work and he takes Josh along for the ride to be his handler. I could have sworn R.J. Scott wrote in book 4 that this would be a 5 book series but it seems there will be a 6th book. I look forward to reading Jake's story.

I have been wondering what this fifth book would be like for quite a while and was sure it couldn’t possibly get any more fascinating than the first four books. Boy, was I wrong. The link that ties these books together is the murder of a young woman called Elizabeth. So far we have seen the story, and all subsequent events, from the perspective of the people most directly involved: a direct witness to Elizabeth’s murder, her step-brother, Elizabeth’s pseudo-boyfriend (trying to protect himself ...more

I loved this book. Full Circle is the story of Manny, the Sanctuary IT Geek and Josh, son of the cop who killed Elizabeth Costain. It turns out Manny has a bit of a history, which explains things hinted at in previous books, and Josh, shamed by his fathers actions, is determined to help bring the Bullens down. They are both attracted to each other and when they get together it's explosive. Finally all the individual threads from the previous books are pulled together to provide a very satisfying ...more

I really liked Manny through all the books and he didn't disappoint now that it was finally his turn. Josh and Manny have a ton of similarities and prove that not only opposites attract. Theirs is a HFN because the relationship is so new, but i am sure we will be seeing more of them.

At first I was upset with the ending because it felt unfinished. I was under the misguided impression this was the last book...fortunately I was wrong. Gotta find some love for Jake and figure out whats up with Sean.

Enjoyed Manny and Josh and thought they were well-suited for each other (they shared not only a love of computers, but more importantly a love of Star Trek). But even though this was supposed to be the last book in the series, it felt like there might be still more to come. Especially with Jake and Sean still twisting in the wind like that...

Another fantastic addition to this series! I really like Manny's character. And he and Josh seem perfect for each other. Who I am dying to read about is Sean and Jake. Can't WAIT for that story. I'm convinced Sean is a good guy.

After all the computer stuff at the beginning, it turned out to be a very good ending to the series. Both Josh and Manny were a very good fit.

Very good m/m romantic suspense in which Manny finds himself attracted to the son of a murderer, but can't let himself get distracted as the Bullen case hits critical.

Whoo hoo. Its Manny’s book. the one that I have been waiting ages for. Josh needs to know the truth so he leaves Sanctuary to hunt for answers. But, he didn’t count on Manny’s sharp eyes. Manny races to the rescue, before Josh is caught where he shouldn’t be. Manny has a bit of a mysterious past and he has put it far behind him. But, now for his Sanctuary family, he digs it up and revisits the past to try to b

Ad ogni romanzo che leggo questa serie mi piace sempre di più! Mi piace perchè ci sono dei personaggi interessanti, perchè c'è una continua suspense, perchè le sorprese non mancano mai e perchè è anche hot al punto giusto! Manny è il genio informatico del "Santuario" e scopriremo in questo nuovo capitolo che nasconde segreti, segreti dolorosi e pericolosi. Josh è finito in questa storia a causa del padre ma ha deciso di non subire passivamente ciò che gli

Love this series - although if this is the last one, there were a couple of unanswered questions that seem important - what happened to Sean?!?!?!

Anywho, Manny has been such a great character for the whole series that it was great for him to get his own story! The back story for Manny and Josh was great (felt so bad for Josh with his boyfriend!), and interesting that these two are so alike, which has not happened since Dale's book, most of the main characters have been opposite in so many ways,

This was another book in this series that was deleted and again I'm lucky I have a backup. This concerns me because a book that's been around for a while like this deserves to have its reviews. It had a rating of 3.98 and people shouldn't have their reviews deleted.

Original review:

Typical protector/protectee sort of story, although that isn't quite how the story is set up. I really like how the relationship starts out with lust and they hop into bed fast before they're thinking about love. It's

Waited for Manny's story and was somewhat disappointed. I liked the continuing story with the Bullens but I wanted to see Manny do some fancy computer shit instead of going undercover. And I didn't really like Josh. I felt like he was into Manny cause Manny was there and his rebound guy. Manny deserved to have someone be totally into him only and I wasn't feeling it. The conflict was wrapped up too quick and tidy. But I loved the teasers about Sean! Is he good, is he bad?

Still all in all, a good

Another wonderful addition to the Sanctuary series. Manny’s story! Manny & Josh are perfect for each other. Their knowledge and love of computers, not to mention Star Trek, draw them together. We learn more about where Manny came from as he assists in the wrapping up of the Bullen case. And he gets his HEA!! Highly recommend not only this book, but the whole series.

I enjoyed Manny's story,didn't think of him as the strong, determine type, only as a computer great. I really was pleasantly surprised to read and see this side of Manny. -- Looking forward to Jake's story now, overall a good series from R.J.-Thanks.

A good series that I believe I should have spaced out a bit more as they began to read incredibly duplicative after the 3rd in the series (I read books 1-5 in 3 days).

The Bullen case continues as the group delves deeper into the family. I look forward to the next story!

A good storyline and very nice chemistry with Manny and Josh, but but but I had to wait until 49% for a simple kiss. I loved the way Nik and Morgan remained a constant... I just never got my HEA... Just HFN...DANG!

OMG OMG OMG OMG! I am so completely captivated with this story!

Manny and Josh. Holy sweetness, Spock.

(I will write a real review of the whole story at the end of the series. It's too tangled to really separate, in my opinion.)
