The Gallows Tree 4/5 – Some of RJ Scott’s scenes in The Gallows Tree are touching while others are heart-breaking in their pain and pathos. Ms. Scott’s descriptions of the environs of Mill Cottage are very real. You can almost hear the sounds of crunching fresh powder snow as Cody and Seb trudge across the fields. Likewise, the intimate moments shared by Cody and Seb are sweet in the care they take of each other’s feelings.
The Heart of Texas 5/5 – The Heart of Texas is a delightful novel with many fascinating layers. The love story between Jack and Riley is heartwarming and realistic. Their sex scenes are beautifully written, extremely erotic, and filled with emotion. RJ Scott is an immensely talented and gifted storyteller, and I highly recommend this engaging romance.
One Night 4/5 – One Night is not a typical romance. RJ Scott takes her readers on Liam’s life-altering journey as he becomes comfortable with his sexuality. It is a powerful lesson in living life on one’s own terms no matter what the family’s expectations might be. And yes in the end, this novel is a love story as Micah and Liam explore the possibilities of the future their One Night has opened for them.
Jesse’s Christmas 3/5 – The only shortcoming in Jesse’s Christmas is the brevity of the story. For a small town boy, Gabriel is a little too quick to get involved with Jesse. Still, the writing is good; the flow of the story fine in Jesse’s Christmas by RJ Scott
Deefur Dog 4.5/5- Deefur Dog by RJ Scott is an emotion filled romance that will make you laugh and cry.

Shattered Secrets (Shadow of the Wolf #1) by RJ Scott and Diane Adams 3.5/5 – I loved the banter and camaraderie between Rob and his partners, and Jamie and his best friend, Doug.
