Nothing in Phoenix’s life ever went right. He never knew where his next meal would come from or if he would be safe going home at night. Desperate to escape, he trusts the wrong person. A different kind of evil wrapped in hope led him into the claws of a prison he might not survive.

Gryphon took a chance on a new life and ended up a captive. To his shock, he wasn’t alone. Twenty boys experimented on physically and mentally, few would ever see the light of day again.

A family forged in the fires of hell. Escape came, but at the price of losing more of themselves than they realized. They must depend on each other and new friends. No-one is expecting to find love, but love may find them anyway.

Their mission is clear: Find the people who did this to them and destroy them.

But some missions aren't always so cut and dry...


Safe Haven is the first book in the Safe Haven series by author Sheri Lynn.  This is a very powerfully written book. I could not put this one down once I started reading.
The changes AJ makes to become the man his today makes him even more remarkable as a person. Tortured as a child, betrayed as a young adult, has risen to become Phoenix out of the ashes reborn and stronger than before.
His only friends now are his brothers, the brothers of his own choosing from the agency. They have all been betrayed and are escaping their own hellish nightmares and lives.
Gryphon they are best friends. They are determined to find the people that put them through hell. They are gonna do this together.  I loved how Phoenix grounds Gryphon and how Gryphon brings love back into Phoenix’s life.
I liked the build up in this book.  I think the story really needed that to balance the powerfully written characters. I got an amazing understanding of the characters and I want more from this series in the future.

I highly recommend this one, it is a beautifully done story and I cannot wait for the next installment to the series.
