Red Rock keeps on truckin' with this fourth installment in the story. After first being introduced to him last time around, we get to dive in deep with Adam Dubois, vampire lumberjack extraordinaire, as well as with Cindy, doctor to the Red Rock pack.
A theme that's been running throughout the past three books is that even though a person may have had a brutal past or enough skeletons in the closet to staff a small army, the chance for redemption, forgiveness and growth is always there; sometimes you have to make the first move, and sometimes the first move is made for you. That holds true here as well, where we learn what it is that's been eating Adam up emotionally for the last 80 years (and set the stage for A Safe Harbor in the process) as well as why everyone is simultaneously afraid for and protective of Cindy, over her objections.
I found Sanctuary Unbound to be just as fun and satisfying as the first three installments, but I definitely recommend that you start at the beginning of the series if you're a newcomer as each story definitely builds on what happened beforehand to advance the plot and develop the characters. I held off on the Scandalous Books designation for this one- it does have all the content you'd expect in a romance novel, but with a little less intensity in terms of content than the other books so far. The relationship between Adam and Cindy is based on emotions and simmers along for most of the story; there are many other things going on at the same time so the physical aspect of their relationship is only one thread in a very complex braid.
The ending of the book is especially important in that the set up for the characters and story of A Safe Harbor is pretty evident. I'm super stoked that I had that to read and review as well, check back tomorrow for my review! Super short version: awww yeah!
Overall Grade: A
