A gift for every single reader needed to know what happened next for to Jack and Riley…



When Hayley arrived on the steps of the D, Riley and Jack knew life would never be the same.



Told through Riley and Jack’s eyes, this is ten years in the life of their family and watching Hayley grow up, fall in love, and start her own life. Hurricanes, illness, babies, happiness, sadness, work, play, the barn, the office, horses, friends, enemies, and above all love.



Excerpt



Chapter One



Riley needed to apologize. Right now.



He’d fucked up big time, and he should have seen it coming, because everything he did went in cycles. He and Jack hadn’t argued in so long and maybe the tension that had been building inside Riley had needed an outlet; he’d provoked the argument. He’d pushed and prodded and sulked and shoved at Jack until Jack had snapped.



Not in loud, shouting temper, or anything like what Riley deserved. No, Jack had gone deathly quiet.



Absolutely. Utterly. Quiet.



Riley shouted at him, got everything out of his system, felt the weight of it all lessen by throwing it at Jack and what had happened? He’d stood there at first, confused, and then steadily calmer. Weirdly calmer.



They argued; no normal marriage went without arguments over things as important as the kids and as trivial as picking up wet towels. But they resolved things, Jack/Riley was a unit that worked. They sometimes bickered and teased, they shouted rarely, and on the odd occasion there would be sulking. Mostly from Riley. He considered it as thinking time but Jack just called him on his sulking like a child.



Their arguments always ended in love; talking, kissing, complete forgiveness that could only come when two people understood and loved each other.



This morning though, he’d made Connor cry, Lexie scowl, and Max hide under the table with Toby. Jack hadn’t even stayed for that. The crying, scowling and hiding had happened after he’d left.



“Why are you shouting at Pappa!” Connor shouted back at Riley. “Stop shouting.” Then he’d started to cry, and Riley’s heart had broken into a million pieces. He’d sat between a crying Connor, and a sullen, angry Lexie and tried to explain that he had a bad headache and he didn’t mean to shout. For headache, read migraine, tight painful migraine that blurred his vision and made him feel sick. He’d taken meds and the sharp edges of the glass in his head were easing, but he couldn’t think straight. Connor stopped crying.



“You were so mean,” Lexie summarized, but she did give Riley a hug and kiss him on the forehead to make it all better.



Max on the other hand, while not angry with Riley and the shouting, was still under the kitchen table with Toby. The black lab, Riley’s black lab, was between Max and Riley in a protective furry wall.



“It’s okay Tobes, I got this,” Riley tried to fold all six-four of himself under the wood. He got caught on a bench, his neck burned, his stomach was in knots, but nothing was going to stop him from getting to Max. Toby did eventually move to one side but not too far. Toby may well have been Riley’s dog at the start, but he and Max were inseparable now.



“Max, buddy?” he began, and Max at least looked up at him for a split second. “You okay?”



“M’okay,” Max said. “You’re noisy.”



At least he wasn’t rocking, or stimming. He was just sitting with his dog in his favorite place under the kitchen table.



“Is everything okay?” Carol said from behind him. He scrambled back and brushed himself off. “Riley?”



“I shouted,” Riley explained simply.



“At the kids?” Carol asked, aghast, as if that was the ultimate sin in her eyes. Which, to be fair, it was in Riley’s as well. He and Jack didn’t shout, they cajoled, and bargained, and ran a happy house. Most of the time, anyway. Just not this morning.



“No, at Jack.”



“Is Max okay?” she peered under the table and smiled at Max. He adored her, the kids all loved their nanny, probably quite a bit more than they loved their dad today.



“He seems fine.” Riley peered out of the window at where Jack had gone. The damage had been done, but Connie and Lexie were chatting to each other, Max was with Carol and he needed to go and make things right with Jack.



“I think we’re okay in here,” Carol said, “Go find Jack.”



Riley shot her a grateful glance, and as he left the kitchen he heard Lexie telling Carol that her Pappa had a headache and that she’d kissed it better. When he closed the door it was just him and the ranch and finding Jack. It didn’t take him long; he was outside their barn, looking up at the siding, with his feet apart and his arms crossed over his chest.



Riley inhaled the fresh morning air and pulled back his shoulders. He could do this; he could ignore the pain in his head now it had lessened a little, he could push back the nausea, and he could go and apologize to Jack for being a fucking idiot.



“I’m sorry,” he murmured, coming to a stop next to Jack, only a few inches separating their arms. Jack didn’t move.



“It’s okay.” Although it didn’t sound okay at all. Okay was one of those words that meant nothing in the context of an argument, it was a word that plastered over cracks in a relationship. Okay was quiet and tight-lipped silences and Riley recalled okay from when he was a kid.



He hated okay.



“It’s not okay, I have a headache and I didn’t mean any of what I said.”



“You didn’t mean to say that life would be easier if you didn’t have to listen to me?” Jack’s voice was low and serious, and Riley winced.



“You were saying too much, and I couldn’t think.”



Their discussion had started in the bedroom.



“I asked if you’d made an appointment to see someone about the headaches.”



“I know—”



“And why you were limping again—”



“Jack—”



“And why you weren’t sleeping, and why you spent so much time at the office, and why the fuck have we not used the barn in over a month?”



The barn wasn’t just the barn, it was a euphemism for sex. They hadn’t been together in a month, over a month now. How did Riley explain that he’d been at the office, sometimes with the blinds shut, closing out the light, sleeping? How did he explain he didn’t want to see a doctor because the headaches scared him? And how the hell did he tell Jack he was limping because every single one of his muscles hurt, because he was tired, because it was all too much?



“Jack, I’m sorry.”



“You’re not, Riley, because you won’t listen to me.” Jack pointed at the barn. “I’m thinking we turn this into a games room for the kids.”



Riley gripped Jack’s arm. “No, what the hell?” His tension fled and in its place was panic. This was their space. Sometimes they came out here to talk, to hide away from the world, but it was also the one place they had the hottest sex he’d ever experienced. He wanted that again, but he was so tired, every time he turned over in bed his neck hurt, and his head pounded, and his leg ached, and he was fucking tired of it all. “Jack, I’m sorry, don’t…”



Jack turned to face him, and his expression wasn’t angry. “Either you go to the doctor, right here, right now, or I start clearing the place for a pool table.” He looked deadly serious, and Riley couldn’t tell if this was an empty threat. Then Jack softened, cradled his face and pressed a kiss to his forehead. “Riley, please.”



Just those two words pierced the fear in Riley, he couldn’t stop the pain, or the threat of being sick, or not sleeping, but whatever was wrong, Jack would be there for him.



“I’m scared,” Riley murmured.



Jack gathered him close. “You think I’m not?”



“Please don’t,” Riley said against Jack’s neck. His words sounded slurred and fear made him sway. What the hell? “Please don’t let me chase you away.”



“I won’t.”



And that was the last thing he heard as his world went to black.

Trapped in darkness, can an escort find a man to help him into the light?

Gabriel Reyes never gave in. He fought and was hurt, was abused but escaped with his life. He made his way in the world using the one thing he was good at: sex. He earned a place with a man who controls everything but Gabriel is safe; he’s made it.

Cameron Stafford hires Gabriel for a night, needing nothing more than a pretend boyfriend to get his dysfunctional family off his back. With the money he has in the bank and his own hotel, why won’t they just leave him alone? It doesn’t matter that a degenerative disease has stolen his vision, or that his last boyfriend was a bastard who tried to steal from him; for now he has purpose.

When Gabriel and Cam fall for each other, can they find real happiness and, maybe, a forever that will save them both?


A new story set in the world of Jack and Riley Campbell-Hayes and the Double D Ranch, Texas.


Please be aware: emotional and physical abuse are depicted on the page in this book.

4.5  Stars

RJ Scott delivers another heart-wrenching yet beautiful story, this one featuring Gabe and Cam. This is definitely not the easiest story to read, Gabe goes through a lot of emotional and physical abuse, and it’s hard to read but it’s a part of his story. I felt for him, I hurt for him and I was angry for him. Cam and Gabe’s journey certainly isn’t easy or lighthearted but it’s a journey of healing and finally understanding what love really means.

I adored these two men so much, both of them struggling but in the most unlikely of situations they find each other. Gabe is so broken, just about at rock bottom, his life is basically pain. Cam has a degenerative disorder and is almost blind, he is strong and capable and independent but his family does not see him or treat him that way. Cam hires Gabe to be his ‘date’ for an evening to try to get his family off his back and prove his independence and it’s not love at first sight, but there’s a connection between these two, one that will change both of these men.

This is a powerful story and there are many times when the actual relationship building between Cam and Gabe isn’t the focus. A lot of this story is about Gabe escaping Stefan and the abuse, physical and mental. It’s raw and it hurts but as Gabe comes out of it he finds Cam there to support him and it totally made my heart melt. I absolutely loved what these two built together and how it all came together. Again, not the easiest read but it was so very worth it, another amazing and emotional story from RJ Scott that I won’ t soon forget!

Excerpt

“You got another letter,” Stefan snapped, and threw it at Gabriel, where it bounced against his naked belly and fell to the floor. He didn’t make a move to pick it up, not until Stefan had left. Fucking letters and the ache they caused. Stefan had opened it, the tear jagged, and Gabriel could imagine the temper that Stefan must have felt when he ripped it open. He didn’t blame Stefan; who wanted Gabriel’s past to intrude into what they had now?

He finally picked up the envelope and slipped quietly into his room, closing the door. He didn’t lock it—last time he’d done that, Stefan had broken the door, told him a story about a time when he hadn’t been able to get into a room and that it scared him. That he was thinking about Gabriel.

The letter wasn’t long. They never were.

Legacy Ranch appeared at the top of the paper, in strong, determined capitals. Whoever this Kyle guy was, he had neat, considered handwriting. Gabriel scanned the letter and closed his eyes, waiting for the door to open.

And just like clockwork, Stefan pushed into the room, salve in one hand and a sandwich on a plate in the other, coffee perched precariously on the side.

“I made you some food,” Stefan said, and sat on the bed, causing Gabriel to shift toward him. Gabriel didn’t move away—he didn’t want to upset Stefan.

“Thank you,” Gabriel murmured.

“What did the letter say?”

That was normal. As if it was a test, even though Stefan had already read it. The first time Gabriel had said something wrong, Stefan had looked so damn disappointed. All he’d said was that he loved Gabriel but he didn’t like a liar. He hadn’t needed to say anything else, but the bruises had taken a long time to heal when he’d finished being disappointed with Gabriel.

“They have this horse, Mistry. Apparently it’s still not been claimed.”

“Anything else, Angel?”

Stefan’s use of that nickname was a switch inside Gabriel that made him tense.

“The usual things—that they want to help me and when I’m ready they’ll be there.”

Stefan reached out, and Gabriel schooled his features so he didn’t wince. Stefan cradled Gabriel’s face, and his grip was firm.

“You know what will happen if you go back to that kind of life, my sweet, innocent Angel. You know they’ll hurt you. You don’t need help. You have me. I look after you.”

“I know.” Gabriel knew the right answers to give now. He’d once hoped that the world this Kyle guy wrote about would have a place for him, but that wasn’t an option for someone like Gabriel.

“I look after you, Angel,” Stefan said, and pressed the softest of kisses to Gabriel’s lips. “Now get some sleep. I canceled your two appointments for tomorrow. You need to eat your food, get your chocolate and sleep.”

“Okay.”

Stefan helped Gabriel get settled in the soft nest of pillows, and brushed Gabriel’s short hair.

“This will grow back,” he said.

Gabriel placed a hand on Stefan’s arm. “They held my head, Stefan.” He wanted to say more about what they’d done, but he didn’t have to—Stefan wouldn’t want to hear the details.

“It will grow back,” Stefan repeated, then patted Gabriel’s head. “’Night.”

4 Stars

Hockey hunks with great big wonderful hearts, that’s how I feel about this book. I really loved Mads and Ten and their story together – they are great guys on their own but together they totally melted my heart! RJ Scott and V.L. Locey have created a great new series, I already feel so attached to this whole gang.

I loved the hockey and the action and then add the romance in there and this really was a fun read. Mads is a coach and Ten is a player, maybe their relationship shouldn’t be there, but there is also a history between these two men, Mads is friends with Ten’s older brother Brady. Together these two fall crazy in love with each other and have to figure out how they are going to make a relationship work, come out and also there’s hockey!

I really enjoyed the flow of this story, it wasn’t overly agnsty at all, these two really are in it together. I loved how they handled situations together and really became such a strong couple. I think this is a great start to a new series and can’t wait to read more!

A man without memories and the cop who never gave up hope.

When he wakes up in the hospital, the victim of a brutal beating, John Doe has no memory of who he is or who hurt him. The cops can find nothing to identify him and he can’t remember anything to help…except the name Ethan and one recurring place from his dreams. Two words, and they’re not much, but it’s a start: Crooked Tree.

Detective Ethan Allens has never stopped searching for the two boys who vanished. When a report lands on Ethan’s desk that may give new leads, he jumps at the chance to follow them up. The man he finds isn’t his brother, but it’s someone who could maybe help him discover what happened 12 years ago.

What neither man can know is that facing the very real demons of the past could destroy any kind of future they may have together.

Audio Book Review:

4 – 4.5 Stars

I really loved this book when I read it, it was one of those reads that just got me in the feels so I was very excited about the audio book too! I think Sean Crisden does a good job with narration, he brings a good amount of emotion and feeling to these characters and really delivers with the tone of the story. I definitely enjoyed this audio book, never really wanting to have to hit pause, the same feeling I had while reading. If you’re a fan of audio books I would definitely recommend this one.

Book Review:

4.5 Stars

Crooked Tree Ranch grabbed me and was a great read, but The Rancher’s Son completely captured me! This story builds on the things we learned in the first book but goes oh so much deeper.

Ethan Allens left Crooked Tree Ranch and has a successful career as a police officer in Missoula, but he’s never stopped looking for his brother Justin and his best friend Adam after they disappeared from the ranch 12 years ago. It’s one of the reasons he can’t be on the ranch any more. Then one day he gets a call about a John Doe with ties to Crooked Tree and everything changes.

Adam doesn’t know who he is, his name or anything about his past, but when Ethan shows up from Montana to take care of him, he starts to recognize things. Once he returns to Montana with Ethan all the pieces start coming together again.

I LOVED this story! I was so curious to see what was going to happen with this group and I have to say that R.J. Scott blew my expectations out of the water! This story wasn’t as much about the ‘romance’ but more about healing, love and hope.

As Adam is recovering from his injuries and slowly piecing memories together, Ethan is coming to terms with his feelings for Adam and trying to hold on to the hope that Justin might still be alive, after all, here is his first love, standing in front of him. These two have so much to deal with in this story, but one of the things I loved most about this book is that they did it together.

While this book definitely captured my heart and attention it raises a lot more questions and I really do NEED book 3 and more answers. If you haven’t checked out this series I can guarantee it will capture your attention and your heart! This series is quickly becoming a favorite for me and I can’t wait for more!

Falling for his brother’s boyfriend broke his heart. Now he’s back home and falls in love all over again.

One birthday kiss and Kieran realizes he is in danger of falling for his brother’s boyfriend, Jordan. Leaving for college, then moving to another country is the only way to ease the ache in his heart.

But, when his father becomes ill and his sister begs him to come home, Kieran returns for good. He finds the family business nearly bankrupt and Jordan, the man he ran from, beaten down by despair and guilt.

Friendship is what they promise each other as they work to repair the business, but it could never be enough for Kieran. When secrets spill, and there are vital decisions to be made, Kieran realizes two things; he’s back home, and he wants to stay with Jordan for good.


Now he just needs to convince Jordan.

4 – 4.5 Stars

This is why I love reading R.J. Scott books – so much feeling and emotion! Back Home grabbed me by the heart right from the beginning and never let go, oh I adored both Jordan and Kieran and their journey together. I felt like this story started with the angsty parts and worked through it as the story went on, and I loved that about this book!

Jordan has known the Addison family since he was a kid when he became friends with their oldest son Brad. The two were best friends and eventually became a couple, building a life together. There’s also Brad’s younger brother Kieran, who’s always had a crush on Jordan, and to escape those feelings he moves to London after finishing high school. But tragedy strikes, taking Brad from them and leaving both Jordan and Kieran carrying heavy guilt, for different reasons. A couple years later and Jordan is still running the construction company with Mr. Addison but as his health is failing Kieran returns home and finally real feelings have to be revealed.

There is a lot of pain in Kieran and Jordan, both men still carrying the hurt and guilt that came from losing Brad. Kieran knows he still loves Jordan, but he thinks Jordan hates him. Jordan feels the guilt of Brad’s death every day and tries to push away the feelings he’s carried for Jordan. As the two start working together to save their company, the real truths come out and just maybe they can start to heal.

This book was emotional to say the least, but it was a beautiful journey of healing and finding real love. Both Kieran and Jordan learn that they have to be open and honest with each other, and admit that things weren’t always what they had seemed to be. They both also have to move on from the past. Not only is their relationship special, but I adored the relationship between Jordan and the Addison parents, Phil and Anna were such loving characters and I loved how they played a role in Jordan and Kieran finding their happiness together.

I really enjoyed the flow of this book, the highs and lows for Kieran and Jordan and how they worked through it together. I have long been a fan of Ms. Scott’s books and Back Home is another great addition to her collection. Powerful story with beautifully damaged characters who really do deserve that happily ever after.

*I voluntarily reviewed this book for The Geekery Book Review

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.

4 Stars
A firefighter and a cop – need I say more? Seriously though, this was a fun and quick read that was action packed for both Finn and Max. I really liked these two and loved how their relationship developed even amidst the chaos that seemed to be all around them.
When the police station is deliberately set on fire, Finn rushes in to save someone who’s in lockup, even if he’s the grumpy town drunk. When Max is called to the scene he rushes in to save Finn, and he gets there just in time. Despite injuries and smoke and fire, these two click immediately, they have an undeniable chemistry. Though, as they try to get to know each other Max gets pulled away for fires started around the town and Finn keeps ending up in dangerous situations, certainly seems like it’s personal. These two try to figure out who is after Finn and why, and in that process totally fall head over heels for each other!
I loved these two together, yes there’s insta-love but it just feels right. Even though this is a quick read, it’s full of action, super hot chemistry and sweet love. The romance between Max and Finn is tied in with the mystery of who is targeting Finn very well and definitely held my attention. I love that this a start of a series because I can’t wait to see more of these two as well as get to know the rest of the group better!

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?

4.5 Stars
RJ Scott definitely knows how to write broken men and completely nails it with Luke! Oh, he just broke my heart and had me rooting for a super schmoopy HEA for him. Daniel is the perfect match for him, able to work through his panic and pain and I absolutely adored these two! I was already a Daniel fan after The Fireman and The Cop but totally fell for him and his story.
Luke is returning to Ellery for the sole purpose of signing some papers, settling his father’s estate and then getting back out. He doesn’t want to be there, with the memories of his abusive father who was recently murdered. Half of the property Luke’s father owned belongs to Daniel and his mother and while the two don’t start off so well, they find something special together.
Daniel may come off as the tough former Marine, and no doubt he’s tough, but he has such an amazing heart! Between his goals of opening a facility for soldiers coming home with PTSD to his compassion, understanding and love for Luke, he’s just amazing. Initially these two intend to spend two weeks enjoying each other and their super chemistry but as Luke prepares to leave both men realize they have much deeper feelings than they ever expected.
This story gave me all the feels! I didn’t expect that much emotion packed into a short story and I loved it! The relationship between these two felt so real and raw. Once again, I love this town and these characters and am already ready for the next book.

The Carpenter & The Actor
 

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

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.

4 Stars

Another great addition to the Ellery Mountain series! I love all of these characters and the fact that they are all part of each other’s books and meeting the new guys! Kieran is exactly what I thought, spunky and sassy but adorably sweet as well. Jason is a great match for him, strong and caring but a challenge as well.

It was fun to see the differences in these characters, Kieran is a carpenter and a humble, small town guy while Jason is a well-known and very successful actor from Hollywood. He needs some down time where he can hide out as he still tries to come to terms with his younger brother’s death a year ago. These two meet at the cabins and with the rest of this crew, something that starts out as a couple weeks of fun turns in to more.

These two were sweet together, right from the start. Kieran is certainly attracted to Jason but doesn’t swoon over him because he’s famous, he genuinely likes him. They do make a great couple, actually giving each other what the other person needs so easily and naturally. I also loved how they understood each other and neither man had to give up who they were to be happy together, they figured it out together.

I seriously love this series and can’t wait to start the next book! These Ellery Mountain boys are some of my favorites!

Can Jacob Riley be saved?

jenn-review

4 Stars

Moments is one of those books that is an easy read, a fun story to fall into and fall in love with. Ethan is such a wonderful character and I absolutely loved him right from the start! Jacob on the other hand isn’t quite so easy to love in the beginning, but he definitely gets there!

Jacob starts off as a bit of a cliche – the entitled actor with substance abuse issues, blames everyone else for his problems. He’s not the most loveable guy when we meet him. He’s faced with additional prison time but his father steps in and works a deal where he does community service at an adult education center called Macs. For Jacob Macs is a way out of trouble but for Ethan it’s everything. It’s in memory of his partner who passed away, someone who Ethan still grieves for and misses terribly. Ethan works hard to provide a safe, helpful place and he won’t let Jacob distract from that work.

Jacob and Ethan definitely don’t get along right away, they seriously butt heads, but quickly the two men warm a bit to each other and there’s a respect and friendship. Jacob sees the work done at Macs and finds himself becoming a part of it, learning about himself and healing too. Ethan sees that as well and the two men find a connection together.

For me, this was a story about redemption and worth, for both men. Jacob finally growing beyond his entitled, spoiled mentality and Ethan embracing the future and letting someone in again. I loved seeing these two heal together and learn to love each other. Sure they hit some bumps, and RJ Scott throws in a little angst at the end, but it’s meaningful to this story and proves just how much Jacob and Ethan really do love each other. Another great read from RJ Scott!
