This is a great series!
I know that this series is a re-release for RJ Scott but I only discovered her books about a year or so ago and I was thrilled to get to read this series for Xtreme-Delusions.I love a lot of things about RJ Scott’s writing but one of the best things is that she knows how to write an excellent novella length book. I like to read long books but my favorite length is the novella. I know some people don’t like them because there isn’t a lot of time for character development – but, a good writer knows how to get the job done and leave the reader feeling very satisfied.
For me, RJ Scott is one of the best novella writers I’ve read. She gives us a complete story, with enough character development to satisfy, and never seems to wrap things up too quickly. The reason I enjoy novellas so much is that I hate to get interrupted when I’m into a good story. A novella is usually just the right length that I can sit down and read it uninterrupted in a couple of hours.
In this series we meet three gay men who have been friends since their school days: Finn, Daniel and Kieran. They are all getting to the point where they want to settle down but in a small town like Ellery is not easy to find other gay men. Each book has an HEA but getting there isn’t easy – which, of course, is what makes the story interesting.
In the Fireman and the Cop, Finn is rescued by a hot volunteer fire fighter named Max. When more bad luck seems to follow Finn, he decides he doesn’t want to endanger Max. I loved the mystery in this book; I didn’t guess who the bad guy was at all.
In the The Teacher and the Soldier, Daniel falls in love with Luke who is a few years older and used to live in Ellery. Unfortunately, Luke doesn’t want anything to do with Ellery and has only returned long enough to settle his father’s estate.
In The Carpenter and the Actor, Kieran finally gets his story. Jason McInnery is an actor running from Hollywood and the guilt he feels over his brother’s death. He certainly doesn’t expect to fall in love but he just can’t seem to resist Kieran.
Each of these stories tugged on my emotions; I felt a real connection between each of the characters. The 3 friends really care about each other and are sincerely happy, even if they are envious, when the others find love. None of their journeys to their HEA are smooth but that’s what makes for a great story.
I am very much looking forward to reading the remaining stories in this series.
