The Fireman & The Cop

Rescuing a cop from a burning precinct is in Max’s job description; falling in love was never part of the deal.

Max Harrison moved from the city to take up a role as assistant to the mayor, while also a volunteer firefighter. When he meets Finn Ryan in Ellery, he falls in lust that burns as hot as the fires an arsonist is setting in town.

Finn Ryan is a cop, and somehow he’s attracted trouble. Going back into a fire to rescue the town drunk is just the start. Now he has to rely on the man he’s falling for to make sure it doesn’t end with him dying.

The blurb pretty much says it all, except that The Fireman & The Cop is one hell of a mystery novel. I love all the characters, even the town drunk.

Max and Finn are awesome main characters. Daniel and Kieran are great supporting characters, and you can actually feel the bond of friendship between Max, Daniel and Kieran. The relationship that Max and Finn share make it so that one moment you want to hug them, the next you want to rent a couple of 18-wheelers to pull their heads out of their asses.

Overall it's a great read, and I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

The Teacher & The Soldier

Soldier, Daniel Skylar, falls hard and heavy for school teacher Luke Fitzgerald. How can he make him stay in Ellery?

Luke Fitzgerald left Ellery Mountain for college and vowed never to come back. When his abusive father is murdered, he has no choice but to return. Luke only goes home to sell off his share of the Ellery Mountain Cabins, but everything changes when he meets the son of the other owner. Daniel Skylar lives every day to the limit and sees a future in Luke.

It doesn’t matter what Daniel says, or how much he needs Luke. Luke isn’t staying once everything is sold off. Surely Daniel can understand that what they have between them is just a two-week fling; there is no way it could be love.

Can Daniel persuade Luke that they are in love, and they can build a future together?

In typical RJ Scott style, which I really like, Ms. Scott gives us a look into the life of Daniel Skylar, son of Brenda Skylar, co-owner of Ellery Mountain Cabins. We learn more about Daniel's life in the military, his dreams and aspirations. I really like the tall, dark and sexy Daniel. Being former military like Daniel, I can easily relate to Daniel. I think of all the characters I've read about so far, Daniel is the one I like the most.

This is no way detracts from my enjoyment of other characters. I like them all, and I really like the story line.

Having been brought up in an abusive household, I can also really relate to Luke. Ms. Scott's depiction of Luke's life, right down to the description of his past bruises is spot on.

The more I read about Ellery and it's inhabitants, the more I think I'd like live there.

Well done, Ms. Scott. 5 out of 5 stars!

The Carpenter & The Actor

Jason is running from tragedy, hiding in Ellery, but it’s only when he meets Kieran that he finds love.

Jason McInnery, hounded by the paparazzi after his brother’s death, runs to the one place where he hopes people won’t sell him out. The place where he was born. Hiding in the tourist cabins at Ellery Mountain Resort out of season, he thinks he finally has room to breathe.

Kieran Dexter is a man who knows what he wants; gorgeous actor Jason tied up and begging. When the hottest sex he’s ever had turns to feelings of love, he’s faced with convincing Jason to give them a try and stay in Ellery.

Another well-written novel from RJ Scott.

To be honest, while I enjoyed learning more about Kieran and the gang, this story just didn't do it for me.

Yes, the characters were well developed and the plot solid, I just didn't enjoy it as much as I have her other works.

I give it a 4 out of 5 stars.
