Kieran the carpenter and Jason the actor meet when Jason wants quiet but as Kieran falls into a category that I would say is upbeat talker, you expect them to be at odds but that could not be further from the truth. Once again, the connection is immediate but definitely powerful but whether it has staying power is something you need to read for yourself. I know that instant attraction stories are not for everyone but RJ Scott does them so beautifully, you can't help but fall in love too.
Re-Read Series #1-3 Review May 2017:
The relationships found in Ellery have the potential to be lifelong and everlasting, which isn't surprising since this is a romance series. But as it is so often in life, the end result is not the only place where we find happiness, it is in the journey. The boys of Ellery Mountain find love and happiness with their significant other but they also find friendships, family, and most of all a place they are proud to call home. The installments of this series may fall into more of a novella length but they are jam packed with enough emotions to fill a library with drama, love, touch of mystery, and just the right amount of heat. You will not regret giving the population of Ellery a chance and for me personally I will be re-reading this series for years to come. I do recommend reading them in order as the friendships appear throughout and are a huge part of the story, each book may focus on a separate relationship but because the friendships are throughout it flows better in my opinion when read in order but technically they are each standalones.
Original Overall Series Review July 2015:
What starts out as three friends weekly get-togethers we discover how lives can intertwine over time in very unexpected scenarios that can actually create a pretty good life, community, and family. Each book in this series centers on a different couple and because of that, strictly speaking each story is a standalone but in my opinion you really should read this one in order because one half of the couple had either a cameo or was mentioned in passing in the previous book. Also, each of the previous couples have at least a partial scene in the following installments. For these reasons I'm doing an overall review as opposed to each book having their own write up. Ellery Mountain has loads of drama, interesting and intriguing characters both main and secondary, hints of mystery, and of course plenty of romance, not to mention what would an RJ Scott story be without some well placed hotness. So come along with the Ellery Mountain Fridays and see what life has in store for them.
In this story, Kieran (the carpenter) and Jason (the actor), start a 2 week relationship while Jason is staying in Ellery. Jason is a Hollywood actor (cutely nicknamed "Hollywood" by the guys) but suffered the loss of his brother the year before. He is dealing with his guilt about his brother's death. Kieran is absolutely gorgeous - kind, caring, supportive and very much a part of Ellery.
Together they make a great couple, although at first it is difficult to see what they have in common. Their lives are so very different but really it comes down to what is in the heart, not where you live or what you do for a living. I loved the way that Jason was able to give Kieran what he needed sexually.
This is a lovely story that deals with overcoming loss and moving forward - for Jason this means dealing with this grief and Kieran's Dad also finds love again after the loss of his wife. The boys also get the centre for dealing with PTSD complete.
There are no huge dramatic moments such as the fires, car crashes and lunatics that appeared in previous books. So a bit less excitement but this doesn't make Kieran's and Jason's story any less special.
This time the story centers on Jason, an actor, escaping the glamour and grind of Hollywood after the death of his brother. Kieran is the last in the group of friends to have any romance in his life. He's a small but feisty carpenter that has no problem putting his friends in their places or through their paces. It's love at first sight or in this case, "why are you making so much noise while I am trying to sleep?"
It's a great story, hot sex, romance and engaging characters. It's great on a cold day with some hot chocolate. I give it a tool belt full of stars.
Good writing, still a few non-American sounding things I would have changed, but really not enough to bother me. Good plot, good glimpse of the men from the previous books, and hot sex!
