Joseph and Dale were very easy characters to get into. I loved both personalities and they had a lot of chemistry. They started out as sort of enemies and it grew into lust, and eventually love. Normally, I like a few more intimate moments in a book, this had a smaller amount of that, but I didn't care. Maybe my reasoning for that is I really got into the couple and just wanted them to do something. It would have been funny to watch me reading these two, I was on edge.
In the first book we found out Morgan saw the death of a woman. Joseph was that woman's step-brother and he wanted to find out what happened. So the story starts with him coming home from a mission. Joseph is a SEAL, and Dale an ex-SEAL. He tracks down Morgan after Dale, Nik and Morgan set him up so they could meet. We then get into the whole Bullen saga and it gets somewhat complicated, but I found it easy to follow along.
The book had some hot moments and very frustrating ones. I loved the sexual tension in this one, it oozed passion and heat. I wanted one of the characters to just rip the others clothes off. I was getting frustrated (in a good way) waiting for someone to kiss and when they did finally kiss, it was short and perfect. The sex was sappier than a lot of people would have believed and I loved the mixture of passion and sap.
I really can't say enough about how much I really did enjoy this book. We will be getting a sequel to it and it's needed. The way we were left with these two had me screaming at the top of my lungs NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. But that might just be me! Yeah, I'm willing to admit, I get too invested in my books and couples.
Now, I will say that some people might be a little put off by the suddenness of each couple getting together but I found them perfectly acceptable for both the characters and the scenarios. Because of the possible life and death situations that the Sanctuary team members and their subsequent charges are placed in, I felt that it was very believable for each couple to realize grabbing life and love with everything they have when it's right in front of you, the right call. This might be a turnoff for some but it was not for me.
I found it to be a well written, character driven tale that is definitely worth reading. As I started out with, I think it should be read as one long story to get the sweeping effect of both the mystery and the love as well as the friendships that are explored.

Following Joseph and dales story was so good i felt everything they were going through
I could feel how intense the connection was between Joseph and Dale it jumped out on every page
I was hooked on every scene in this story i really didn't want to put the book down
This was another wonderful intense instalment from the sanctuary series i can't wait for more
In Sanctuary Book 02 active NavySEAL Joseph returns home for some down time after another mission only to find out his step-sister had been murdered. Joseph is determined to get some answers and, with his SEAL team as backup, starts investigating on his own. This leads him inescapably to the „off-duty“ Sanctuary team of Nik,Morgan and Dale doing the same, which is collecting more intel about the Bullen family and finding out why Elisabeth had to die. A just returned young Bullen son offers way more than just assumptions, but needs to be rescued soon after contacting the team. Dale & Joseph set out for this extraction mission together., while sparks of attraction flying among them.
With expensive cars flying ,breathtaking climbing through difficult terrain and Hollywood movie rescue and escape missions this might feel all a bit too much and improbable. But hey, this is a fiction story doing a great job entertaining.The fast pace and action overloaded plot leaves us readers with only some questions answered and many more still in the dark making you rush to the next book of this series fast.
On a side note, the audio book version narrated by Sean Crisden again is nearly 3 3/4 hours of pure listening entertainment pulling you right away into the world of Sanctuary!
Though the premise of Joseph investigating on his own required some suspension of disbelief, particularly on the part of his helpful intelligence team in the background. I also found the blurb a little misleading, as I thought Dale didn't quite qualify as an ex SEAL, having quit after the horrendous events on his very first mission. Likely a matter of definition. As a character, I liked Dale a lot, his bouts of temper and his struggle for self-control, his stubbornness, his self-doubts and his resilience. Joseph, confident, determined, passionate and cold-blooded in one, was Dale's perfect match. I could truly see those two men bring out the worst and the best in each other, and I could see them forging a real commitment, let alone the sparks that flew between them almost right from the beginning. Adversaries-to-lovers happens to be a favorite of mine, and the change from instant dislike to reluctant respect, grudging mutual appreciation, affection and finally love was beautifully exercised here.
The secondary cast was well-drawn too, particularly Morgan and Nik, the leads from Book 1. I liked the relationship dynamics between them, and although Morgan didn't quite fit in among the strong, mean, taciturn testosterone-bombers that apparently make up the majority of Sanctuary's staff, I could see his role and why Nik would fall for him, why Dale would feel protective towards him. And Sanctuary's campy computer geek was a breath of fresh air!
So while the characterizations as well as the romance worked very well for me, the actual mystery didn't, not really. Too many improbabilities were conveniently wiped away, including a totaled 300.000 $ Lamborghini and a hiking path that leads past the backyard of a highly guarded mobster's compound. The mystery around Elisabeth's dead wasn't solved yet in the end either, not really. Although the actual killer had been known since book one, (Guarding Morgan) his motives remained obscure. Who's pulling the strings in the background is also quite obvious by now, though there's still room for more investigation, as befitting a book that's part of a series.
By the way, unlike many series, The Only Easy Day doesn't suffer from "middle book syndrome", by which I mean a book that's only there to knit some loose threads together and let others hang but doesn't have a proper story on its own. This book tells a fairly well wrought story in its own right; originally, I read it as a standalone, and although I didn't have all the information, there was enough so I could follow the general storyline. Thus I can recommend it as a solitary read as well as a part of this entertaining, enjoyable series.

Wat mooi is aan deze boeken is dat met elk deel het verhaal verder wordt uitgebreid. Dat zorgt er ook voor dat je nieuwsgierig wordt naar het vervolg
