Blurb

Can Jack save his home and win the man who’s claimed his heart?

Early in life Jack Storey learns a very hard life lesson from those who should love him. In a place of utter despair he meets a man who changes his life… forever. Encouraged to express himself and fulfil all his dreams, Jack grabs at life with both hands to prove to himself he’s worthy of love. The one thing that remains elusive because he’s already given his heart to Kit.

Then Garfield, the house Kit runs and Jack calls home, is put under threat. With time running out to stop the residents from becoming homeless, Jack asks his modelling friends to help save Garfield.
Kit is about to find out just how hard Jack will work and fight for those he loves.

Headshot is a sixty-thousand word contemporary MM novel featuring friends to lovers, age-gap, hurt comfort, and a sassy model with kick arse style. It’s part of the Model Love multi-author series. Each book can be read as a standalone, in any order, but there are so many models falling in love, why not read them all?

There was a cracked laugh that quickly turned into a sob, that one eye holding the misery of the world. “Not as scary as having everything you own taken from you because you like to wear make-up and are interested in… boys.”

The next sob was louder and Kit gently nudged the boy with his shoulder, working on keeping things friendly while trying to offer the support the boy clearly needed.

“Come with me, I promise that we’ll work to figure it out. Though it feels like there might be nothing worth living for, I swear there is if you’ll just let me help you find it.” He held out his hand to the boy, noticing it shook with the nerves wanting to take hold. Breathing deep, he smiled gently. “I’m Kit.”

Seconds dragged past, but Kit didn’t rush the boy as he eyed his hand with suspicion. When he finally let go of the packets and they dropped into his lap, Kit breathed easier for the first time since coming across the boy.

“I’m Jack.” The hand that slipped into Kit’s was small and freezing. It held Kit’s with surprising force. “Please don’t hurt me,” he begged, the one eye pinning him in place and capturing a part of his heart with his bravery.

“Never Jack. I’ll never hurt you.”

READ MY REVIEW

Ellery-10-png

Blurb

Someone wants JC dead, and Adrian is the only thing standing in the way. Has war followed them home? Or is something more sinister at play?

JC struggles to understand his place in the world, and despite being wealthy beyond imagination, he’s never found real happiness outside of his friendship with Adrian. Enlisting in the army is his attempt at finding purpose, but tragedy strikes, and only the Ellery Veterans Center can help put back the pieces of his shattered life. With a bullet fragment in his brain and seemingly no chance of ever being the man he once was, he begins to lose hope.

Adrian didn’t hesitate to follow his best friend to war, but with their unit decimated in an ambush and JC bleeding into the dirt, Adrian buries his hopes for the future to keep the man he loves safe. Acting as JC’s bodyguard means he is secure for now, but threats from an unknown person escalate to attempted murder, and Adrian has no choice but to take JC and run. When the Sanctuary Foundation intervenes and takes them into their care, they might be safe, but revealed secrets could destroy everything.

Sometimes, even if love finds a way through tragedy, it can be impossible to imagine forever.

This book features characters from RJ’s action-adventure romantic suspense Sanctuary series, but you do not have to have read Sanctuary to enjoy this story. This best-friend-to-lover, hurt-comfort romance has bodyguards, threats, found family, and a guaranteed love-filled happily ever after.

This book was previously released to newsletter subscribers as a serial.

Excerpt

Every time I lied to him another small part of me died.

“At this time, given everything I have here, our recommendation remains one of therapy…”

I glanced over at JC’s grandmother, Georgina, who was sitting upright in her chair and showing no emotion. That was her upbringing, her station, her belief in what was right, but I’d seen her cry. Hell, I’d held her when she sobbed; so, I knew that the surface was calm, but under it all, there was indescribable grief. The three of us left the office—JC still holding my hand, leaning on me for support—and we made our way back to the car with careful and slow steps. The chauffeur opened the door for us, and as soon as we were inside, Georgina turned to me with determination.

“I found a place in Tennessee, rehab, horticultural therapy. There are stables nearby, no paparazzi, no one would know he was there. I want JC to go.”

My chest tightened. What would he do without me next to him? What would I do without caring for him and loving him the best way I could?

“To Tennessee?”

JC used my shoulder as a headrest and closed his eyes, mumbling something under his breath.

“They won’t come to us here,” she pursed her lips, “but I understand why. There’s affection at the center, warmth, love, and support.”

“Okay, if it’s the right place for him, then I’ll take him there,” I insisted. But I wouldn’t leave him. Hell, I was already making plans to rent close to wherever he was, just a small place where I could see him every day. I didn’t care if we were co-dependent because I knew him better than I knew myself, and I was staying.

“I don’t want you just to take him; I want you to go with him and stay. As his…” She waved a hand as if she expected me to fill in the words.

“Friend?” I suggested with caution.

“You’re his friend already. At this moment in time, he needs more than just a friend; he needs you to step up and keep him safe from the threats that circulate around this damn family.” She dipped her head, as if she couldn’t believe she’d cursed. “Away from his parents, and I need you to create a security team. I need you to be his bodyguard.”

“Okay.”

“To never leave his side.”

“I won’t ever leave his side.”

“To keep my grandson safe.”

“You have my word.”

She reached over and took my hand, glancing at JC, who had drifted into sleep. “I know you love him more than you let him know.” She couldn’t know how much I loved JC. Could she? Not even JC knew what I really felt.

“I don’t…” Words were hard, but her perception was legendary.

“You don’t need to lie to me. Love my grandson, wholly and completely, and keep him safe.” She laced her fingers with mine.

I nodded. “Always.”

A highly satisfying return to the mountain

Ellery-10-pngThe Soldier and the Bodyguard by R.J. Scott

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While I received this as part of RJ weekly newsletter serial, I knew I wanted to wait until it was done to read it.

It’s one of the most dramatic narratives in the Ellery Mountain series and has a tie-in to her Sanctuary series too which brought an added bonus.

I loved both JC and Adrian and I felt the former’s brain trauma was handled in a way which made sense.

The suspense element was perhaps a tad out there but not unbelievable as money makes people do horrendous things.

It’s relatively low steam, which is understandable but very emotional and has all the feels.

I loved catching up with both the Ellery crew and the Sanctuary guys.
