Snow & Secrets by RJ Scott writing as Rozenn Scott Blog Tour

First comes trust, then love… then the fight to stay alive.

Pop star Tyler Hart is desperate for peace after a humiliating public scandal. It seems like Stanford Creek may well be the place to lay low. After all, it worked for his friends and former bandmates, Cody and Danny. He borrows a cabin and settles in for a quiet Christmas… well, not quite.

Garrett Campbell is on the run. Wounded in the line of duty, he escapes to the only place he feels safe, Stanford Creek and his brother’s cabin. Only he doesn’t realize he’ll have a roommate, and a sexy one at that.

Amid snow falls and winter winds, passion burns bright. When danger threatens to follow Garrett, he has to decide whether to run again before his secrets could kill him and the man of his dreams.

**This book may be read as a standalone.**

This is the third book in the series, and is a really good read. It definitely refers to previous events, which means you would get even more out of it as part of the series – but it is about a new couple, and would read well as a standalone, too.

One thing I really liked about this story is that both men have a back story which impacts on their present. It gives them a level playing field, even if Garrett does not think so. I thought that the mystery element was dealt with well, and the impact on the men and their future made sense. I enjoyed the simple times that gave them a chance at getting to know each other before giving in to their obvious chemistry!

I highly recommend this as a fun, sexy, and intriguing read. Thank you Ms. Scott.

This really hasn’t been my favourite RJ Scott series from the start. I had hopes for the first m/m story in the series, but I struggled to connect to both men – or their story.

There has been an edge of suspense to this series all along, but the dangers of Garrett’s mysterious covert life seriously amplifies the tension in the third book. There were times that I enjoyed the contrast of Garrett’s secret life against his family’s happy small town domesticity, but the secrecy meant that even as a reader, I never felt I really knew or connected with Garrett.

And Tyler. Secret agent meets boy band dancer? Tyler is sweet. He is broken and embarrassed, but he feels very, very young. And Garrett’s experiences make him feel much, much older. I understood the attraction between these two, but the road from attraction to convenient hook-up to happily ever after was way too quick. This story was missing the romance and the passion I expect in an RJ Scott story.

Beyond Tyler and Garrett are glimpses of the Campbells in their happy, settled domesticity. I enjoyed Justin more in this story and I really liked the tentative, reparative relationship between the brothers. This isn’t a personal favourite story and I haven’t loved this series from the start. I’m pretty sure that most of my reservations are personal and I’m interested to see how other RJ Scott fans respond to this story.
