Lily Everett takes her readers back to Sanctuary Island for the sixth book in the series Home at Last. This is Marcus and Quinn’s book and I was eagerly looking forward to reading their story.
Unfortunately, the story the author delivered fell way short of the expectations I had, especially after the way this couple were with each other in the previous book from the series Close to Home, it was made very clear that Marcus is a man with a number of personal demons that ...more
Home at Last by Lily Everett was a heartwarming and entertaining read.
I enjoyed watching Marcus and Quinn's relationship unfold. They made me laugh, they frustrated me a little and they made my heart swoon.
These two were perfect for each other and totally deserved their HEA after everything they'd been through.
Home at Last is a lovely addition to the Sanctuary Island series and I highly recommend them all!
*Thank you to the publisher for the advance copy*

I recently finished another book where the male lead had a nickname for the female lead. Marcus has one for Quinn as well. It is "Turbo". Knowing the meaning behind it makes it all that more enduring. Despite a 10 year age difference, it was not felt as Quinn and Marcus interacted with each other. In fact, I think ...more

Home at Last is book six in Lily Everett's Sanctuary Island series, after the build up from the previous book I was a little disappointed in the overall story. Quinn and Marcus were amusing with their old married couple bickering but in this book you really don't see much of that in this book. The romance between them seemed very easy, I thought the main focus of the book was more on Quinn's parents their problem and her dealing with them. Marcus also dealing with his past and the bag ...more
I was excited to get the rest of Marcus and Quinn's story, which was introduced in the previous book, 'Close to Home.' I was looking forward to their second chance romance, and finding out all the ways they ticked. Marcus was an especially difficult character to read. When he put up walls, he really went all out. Good thing Quinn is an optimistic, positive person - Marcus's opposite - otherwise, there's no way they would have had a second chance. She was just the sunshine needed to help ...more
I love Quinn – what a sweetheart she is – even if she is having trouble figuring o ...more

When Quinn was 12 years old she had a crush on their only neighbor’s son, Marcus, ten years her senior. After high school she had a brief fling with Marcus before he left to enlist in the ...more
With an intriguing premise, this romance novel showed that taking a chance on love can be scary but well worth the risk. It takes a huge gamble for Quinn –toying with the man who’d dumped her to try and save her parent’s marriage. That’s the kind of woman she is, though, and maybe this will show Marcus that he can open himself to love again, and he might just deserve it.
Quinn Harper had been in love with her neighbor Marcus Beckett since she was small ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy (Via Netgalley) of this book.
Home at Last by Lily Everett gave us the story of Marcus and Quinn. Their “on again-off again” romance made me hope for a happily ever after. I knew they were meant to be, but stubborn heads and sad pasts get in the way.
Marcus and Quinn were the types of characters that made me want to slap them each up side the head. And, I say that with the utmost of love and affection.
Marcus is a hometown boy who left after his mother’s death and made a career as a bodyguard. He’s decided he doesn’t want that stress, so he’s back home to run a bar and avoid Quinn at all costs. From finding her a pesky little girl, to lett ...more
Marcus and Quinn's story started in the previous book, CLOSE TO HOME. They were definitely my favorite thing about that book because their relationship had a ton of spark and combustion. At the end of that book they weren't together and I couldn't wait to see which direction this book would take them. I was so pleasantly surprised with what the author did in this book. HOME AT LAST is possibly my favorite book in this series, and that may just be because it has a bit more romance than women's f...more
Although this was Marcus and Quinn’s story, Quinn’s parents played a big role in everything that goes down – especially when Quinn finds out that she may be ...more
