Review: Home at Last (Sanctuary Island #6) by Lily Everett

Book Blurb:
Home is where the heart is...

Marcus Beckett left Sanctuary Island after his mother's funeral, and he hasn't been back since. Until now. Needing a change from the high-risk, high-stakes life of a bodyguard, Marcus makes a solitary life for himself running the neighborhood bar in his hometown. His only mistake? Seducing and then dumping the town's sweetheart, Quinn Harper. Marcus knows he did the right thing—a good girl like Quinn has no business with a broken man like him. But now no one will come to his bar, and he's watching his last chance at a peaceful life go up in smoke. So when Quinn proposes a fake four-week courtship, he can't refuse...even though he knows it's a bad idea.

It's a romantic charade that will buy Quinn time to distract her mother and father from their own martial problems—and will help Marcus welcome back some paying customers besides. But what begins as an engagement of convenience slowly transforms into a deeper connection, one that heals both of their hearts...and ignites the simmering passion between them. Could it be that pretending to be together is just what Quinn and Marcus needed to give their real love a second chance?
My Review:
Home at Last by Lily Everett took me back to Sanctuary Island and all that it is, but it was not as easy to fall into this story as it was the others about Sanctuary Island.  Many of the situations and actions of the main and secondary characters were not really believable which made it difficult for me to feel the pull into this book as I did the others in this series.  Having said that, the feelings and emotions that the characters were experiencing felt real and as Lily Everett wrote them, I could feel along with the characters.
Quinn is very open, easy to get to know, and seemed very young!  Marcus is a mystery man for the most part, and I liked finding out his story over the length of the book.  It is a very heart felt, touching, heart breaking story that really made me feel for him!  They seem like an unlikely couple, and despite the odd happenings they find themselves in, I hoped somehow they could find a HEA.
In Home at Last, I liked the feeling of finding love, but at the same time facing the struggles of relationships.  All kinds of relationships from family, community, to a couple made up Home at Last, and they all linked together well.
As I read Home at Last it did grow on me and I did feel a range of emotions, but it's not my favorite of this series.  Home at Last can be read as a stand alone in this contemporary romance series.

3/5 stars
