Chase Payne is a walking contradiction. He's the most powerful psychic in the Community, but the least respected. He's the son of the Community's founder, but with his tattoo sleeves and abrasive attitude, he's nothing like his charismatic family. No one knows what to make of him, which is how he wound up locked in a cell on the Farm yet again. But this time, the only man ...more

3,5 rounded up

It pains me to give this book only 3,5 stars, but unfortunately I expected so much more.
Maybe it's me again. Maybe I had too high hopes for this one. Anyway, I was disappointed it didn't raise to my expectations.

I loved the second book, Oversight so much. It was amazing and naturally I expected the third one to knock me on my feet.
I was also a huge fan of Chase. He was so mysterious and I knew his story will break my heart. But I also expected a grand finale and I didn't get

4-4.25 stars.

When I first started reading this series, what I read and got was so not what I expected. I ended up enjoying it so much more than I thought. This series cannot be read as a standalone. Although each book features different characters, the story that flows from book 1 to now is continuous.

Chase is someone you met earlier in the series along with Elijah. As soon as you read their story, you know there was something going on there and I just had to get my hands on their book. And

While I'm not sure any series by any author will ever impact me quite the same way as ICoS Santino has yet again produced another riveting read.

This has a slight ICoS feel to it and it's a rough beginning.

It was always a challenge to maintain his mental shield while pretending to be mind-controlled by a sociopath in a black lab coat who was trying to splinter his brain. However, Chase had done it before.
Without his shield, the sociopath in question—Jasper, psychic vamp extraordinaire—would

All in all, I am a fan of this series. I think I may be a bigger fan of the paranormal genre than I realized. My favorite book in this series, hands down, was Book 2 - Holden and Six were fantastic. While this book finished the series nicely, it was a bit lacking in the actual relationship of Chase and Elijah. I realize all the intense action was happening, so I get why it wasn't all about them as a couple during the bulk of the story, but I was hoping for something more maybe at the en

Original Review stays under spoiler tag because Goodreads is first and foremost *my* record of reading activities, and the fiasco doesn't change the fact that I've read this book **

4.5 stars

I’ve been waiting for this book ever since I met Chase and Elijah in book 1. I couldn’t wait to read about how the douchey bad boy fell for the sweet twink. ‘Sightlines’ definitely delivered!

Book #3 hits the ground running. Chase and Elijah are captives at the Farm, and their only way to survive is to play along with Richard and Jasper’s vision for the Community. The two men are cut off from any allies, and can only rely on each other.

If you’ve been following along to their side-story i

Unfortunately, Sightlines was my least favorite of the Community trilogy and that's saying a lot considering it served as the wrapup to the series, and I was already underwhelmed by Oversight (Book 2). I thought the pacing was unusually slow with none of the urgency one would expect considering the circumstances our two heroes found themselves in. Worse was the lack of progress made on the overarching "big bad" plot until well into the final third of the book. By that point, I found it very diff ...more
Wow, what a great nuanced ending to Santino Hassell's The Community series. Throughout the first two books in the series, we learned about The Community - both its public face and the dark deadly evil underside. We've met Nate of the infamous Black family of psychics and his partner Trent; Holden, whose father started The Community, and his lover Sixtus; and now Sightlines tells Chase's and Elijah's story.

Chase is an incredibly talented multi who has spent most of his life at The Farm being "re

OK, you guys. I have a less than stellar review to write for a favorite author, so you know the drill. Get in and out of this review asap, but still be informative. I had to go back and read my reviews for Insight and Oversight to see what had changed between them that made me love the second so much, and that still stands. The second book was much more relationship focused (at least IMO,) than the first, and this is where Hassell excels. In fact, I men

Took me a while to get back into book 3 but by 50% I was back to loving Chase & Elijah. I hated life on the farm, so well done Santino- I guess you wanted that response from your readers ... I certainly could empathize with Chase much more and I was seriously hoping both these guys would find a moment of peace. I must say, Jasper and Will were nasty mother#^*%•ers, I wished they went out with more of a bang !!! It was great to have all the team back together in the second part of the book and wa ...more

Overall I liked this series a lot and although the romance was a subplot in each book I felt the connection with each couple.

I thought the details that I've come to expect in Santino's writing were missing in books 2 and 3 and since there's an overarching plot I felt the final conflict was rushed.

Sounds like there's no plans to revisit the community anytime in the near future but I wouldn't mind reading how these characters are doing after some time has passed and to see what they've been up t
4.5 stars. Great finish to the series, and I loved how they finished as family, not just Community. Chase needed that almost as much as he needed Elijah and I loved that too. ❤️

Audio was very well done. I like this narrator and the more I listen, the more I like. :) The voices for the characters was distinctive and consistent from one book to the next. Narration - 5 stars.

An ARC was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

First let me start by saying I am so glad I didn't have to wait too long to read the conclusion to this series. Yes, the previous books ended on a cliffhanger of sorts, and YES these must be
Rating removed due to the following:

😤Original review: I’m in a quandary.....this book....this book was good, but it wasn’t great. It wasn’t quite underwhelming, but it was lacking something Ive come to expect from Santino Hassell: PASSION. It almost felt as if Santino lost his passion for this story.

Was it a 4 Star Read? Almost. Was it 3.5...not quite because it was well edited and pulled together many plot points from the previous books. It just didn’t

3.5 stars. I get that this is the final book in the Community series. I also get that this book needs to wrap up all lose ends in the series and bring the entire story to a satisfactory conclusion. I get that. But this story is 97% action/thriller/paranormal suspense and 3% romance. I needed/wanted more romance and heat. I needed to not just be told that Chase and Elijah cared for each other, but to see their relationship and feelings evolve over time. Instead, their relationship took a back sea ...more

Loved the book.

Can't support the author anymore, though. Breaks my heart, but not as much as others were broken.

(Leaving my review on this one as I did receive an ARC for this and I want to hold up my end of the bargain. This is no way a denial of those hurt by the author and and I actually do want to give a shout out to all the brave souls who bared themselves and told their stories. May they find the healing they deserve.)

This is the third book in Santino Hassell's Community series. This series should be read in order so you can understand the continuing plot line. Each book focuses on a different couple but also follows the same plot. This book was about Chase and Elijah. This was the book I feel like I have been waiting forever for! I wanted their story so badly! Especially after the cliffhanger in the second book! I enjoyed this one a lot, and I'm so sad to see this series ending. I do have to say that I feel ...more

I've wondered how powerful Chase truly is so I was excited about his story. His abilities are definitely all that, but actually, his vulnerability is at least as attractive. He's been starved for affection for so long. It's astonishing that he became such a great man. As much as this is a high-action battle between the good and bad sides of the psy community, it's a love story between Chase and Elijah. Both have been through enough pain for a lifetime. Their

We have come to the final chapter in The Community.  Be warned there may be some spoilers in this review if you haven't read the others in the series.  This series is meant to be read in order as there is a continuing story arc that plays in the background while the different characters find their HEAs.

At the end of OVERSIGHT we are left with a cliffhanger and not knowing what happened to Chase and Elijah.  Elijah got shot while trying to escape The Farm and Chase jumped in the lake after hi

Review by The Blogger Girls.

This is the final installment of this interesting trilogy, and it wraps things up nicely. It picks up where the previous one left off, with Chase and Elijah getting caught while the others made their get away from the Farm. These absolutely must be read in order, as we learn much about The Community, its members and goals, as well as those who oppose and are trying to stop it. At this point, lines have been mostly drawn, and this segment is where it all ends up playin
