The Fireman and the Cop (Ellery Mountain #1) by R.J. Scott 3*
BLURB: 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 Teacher and the Soldier (Ellery Mountain #2) by R.J. Scott 3*
BLURB: 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?
The Carpenter and the Actor (Ellery Mountain #3) by R.J. Scott 3*
BLURB: Jason McInnery, hounded by the paparazzi after his brother's death, runs to the one place where he hopes people will not 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.
If only Kieran Dexter, a man ten years his junior, would stop fixing stuff and generally causing ripples in Jason's calm space.
My Review (For all three) I received all three in exchange for an honest review. I can review all three of these books together as they seem to follow a fairly predictable story line. That said, they are all unique from each other in as much as each character is well written and an individual in his own right. The stories are all fairly quick reads and are all different enough not to get boring. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series (I believe there are another 4 to go) and hope to find them equally entertaining.
