Max the fireman and Finn the cop meet under horrible conditions but as fate often reveals, that is when we meet the people who have the potential to change our lives the most. I loved them the first time around and they were even better than second time around. As much as I enjoyed Max and Finn's journey, I found myself really appreciating the friendship between Finn, Daniel, and Kieran more than I did during my original read two years ago. Max and Finn have a passion that we all want to find in life and watching them get from point A to point Z is a bit bumpy but full of spicy fire that only a cop knows how to control and a fireman can contain.
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.
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.
Finn and Max meet under less than ideal circumstances but it's memorable enough for Max that he knows he wants to see Finn again, and again. Just when it looks like they'll be able to get together something else happens and this is what makes this story very interesting. There's a pretty good mystery and I didn't guess who the bad guy was at all.
I could feel the emotional connection between Finn and Max and heat level between them was pretty good, too. This story really engaged my emotions and that's just the way I like it. I also liked the secondary characters and very much look forward to reading their stories.
An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.
The first three novellas of the Ellery Mountain series are set in Ellery, Tennessee and tell the stories of three best friends who find love in their small town. These books could be read individually, but I think you'd get more enjoyment if you read them in the appropriate order, especially because book 2 continues a storyline from book 1.
The Fireman and the Cop
Due to difficulties at his previous town, Max has accepted a job in Ellery working for the Mayor and volunteering at the fire department. He's immediately pulled into arson investigations that have started in Ellery, which has led to him meeting Finn, a local police officer. Finn continues to find himself in dangerous situations that Max is having to rescue him from, and they soon learn that someone is targeting Finn. Along the way Max and Finn began dating and fall in love, but the person targeting Finn isn't happy about that development and decides to get Finn back.
This had a lot of crazy packed into a novella! This was my favorite of the three novellas so far, because it didn't feel like the relationship between Max and Finn was rushed. Both Max and Finn were likable guys and this story was a great introduction to the Ellery Mountain series. It provided the background of the town, and introduced to Finn's friends who would have their own novellas. A novella about a fireman and a cop, how can you pass that up? You can't!
Overall, this is a really enjoyable series with several more stories to follow!
