Summary:

JESS MASTRIANI

Knew she wasn’t going to be able to hide her psychic powers from the U.S. government forever. But she never thought that she and Dr. Krantz, the special agent brought in to convince Jess to join his elite team of “specially gifted” crime solvers, would have something in common.

When a local boy’s disappearance is attributed to a backwoods militia group, it turns out that Jess and Dr. Krantz have the same goal. Suddenly Jess finds herself collaborating with one enemy in order to stop a far worse one. In an atmosphere of hate and fear, Jess and Dr. Krantz must work together to unite a community and save a life…without loosing their own.

Review:

This. Book. Was. So. Intense. From the first page, it had me hooked, and I finished this in a day and a half. Jess was especially witty, Rob seemed especially hot, and the entire thing fit into one action-packed book. Filled with angry motorcycle gangs, evil backwoods militia groups, and creepy FBI agents, this book will definitely have you on the edge of your seat.

I love Jess. She’s a great female lead, telling the story with sarcasm that has me wanting to roll on the floor laughing. She’s independent, doesn’t take no for an answer, and knows how to get her point across with her fists. She’s not afraid of danger, but in no way is she naive.

Oh, how I wish more books had characters like her. I’d be in reading heaven.

Rob, though I didn’t really like him in the first book, is quite fantastic in this one.

I flew through this one, and can’t wait to get my hands on the next, and final, book! I’m not looking forward to the end of this series, because I don’t want to have to say goodbye to these characters. And yet, I desperately want to know what will happen . . .

The contradictions are killing me!

Sanctuary, book 4 of the 1-800-Where-R-You series, gets 5/5 stars. It’s a fun, fast read that will leave you craving more!
