Pride by RJ Scott Release Blitz

USA Today Bestselling Author. RJ Scott. Pride. Single Dads 6.

A blazing connection between single dads from opposite sides of the tracks is fraught with secrets and lies, and a happily ever after is impossible, unless they take a chance on love.

Saved a long time ago by a man who saw a diamond in the rough, Logan is a single dad and the owner of Redcars Automotive, a haven for those in need. With custody of his daughter under scrutiny, his life is upended when a journalist looking for a story slips into his life without him realizing. Logan doesn’t want Gray more than once, but when sharing the secrets of his past won’t get the journalist to leave, what else can he do?

After blaming himself for missing signs that his son was ill, Gray feels Ben is safer with his ex-wife and her new pediatrician husband. With a heart heavy with guilt, and his documentary company failing to find a story, he’s searching for some spark in his life to fix everything. When a series of arson attempts draws him to Los Angeles, he meets the secretive, scarred, and tattooed Logan, who makes him an offer that Gray knows he should refuse.

Pride is an opposites attract love story featuring two single dads reaching a crossroads in life, angst, secrets, arson, intimidation, and a found family so tightly connected that nothing can break it apart.

“I’m okay,” I muttered to the room.

“Talking to yourself, Logan?” Izzy said from the doorway.

I spun to face her as she slipped inside and shut us in. I felt trapped, but she hadn’t closed the door on purpose because she didn’t know I was claustrophobic. Hell, she didn’t know a tenth of the things about me that’d make her stop and think before shutting us into this small room. She floated in on a cloud of perfume, her ivory skin flawless, every hair in place, and jewelry that would keep the garage afloat for years around her neck, in her earlobes, and weighing down her hands. I’d never have gone out of my way to go with a high-class girl like her, but she’d gone out of hers to find a bad boy. I couldn’t even regret that night, or the joyride in a stolen car, or the arrest, or everything after that… because out of all of it came Cassidy.

And she was every good part of me. She was everything.

“Izzy,” I acknowledged.

“Isabel,” she corrected, and fiddled with the handle of her purse. “Parker suggested that I talk to you alone before we reconsider the custody arrangement—”

“Which was made official with a court order two years ago,” I interrupted. “So, if we’re here to discuss me having Cassidy for more time, then I can agree to that without spending money on lawyers.” Money that I don’t have.

“Logan, stop.” She held up a hand, and I saw the French-polished nails—she used to wear her nails longer, painted them scarlet, but this wasn’t the Izzy I’d known oh so briefly, this was the new, improved Isabel, who wanted to slot back into the world she’d once tried to escape with her walk on the wild side. “It’s not that.”

“So, if you don’t need me to take her for more time, then what are we doing here?”

“Parker has been offered a long-term role within his family’s bank in Europe. Switzerland, to be exact.” She used words, but the rushing sound in my ears meant I couldn’t string them together in any order. Panic gripped my chest. I couldn’t breathe. Switzerland? That meant…

They want to take Cassidy.

“No,” I managed. “No.”

“Think of the opportunities—”


“Please be reasonable—”

“You’re not taking our daughter to goddamned Switzerland.”

She winced at the harsh words, but I wasn’t going to be manipulated into thinking I was wrong in my reaction. How in God’s name would I see her? Would she fly back? Would I go there? How could I go there? Izzy was still speaking in that low, wheedling tone that reminded me of Parker, as if she had the right to stand there and rip my life apart.




Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the sixth book in the series, and they are all worth a read. You could read this as a standalone, and then go back and enjoy the others.

I really liked most of the elements of this book, I am just not sure that they all worked together for me. There is really a lot going on, with multiple characters who we are not entirely sure whether we should or shouldn't care about them. That slowed the pace, and distracted me from the obvious potential of the relationship brewing between Logan and Gray. I bought their strong attraction, and even the lack of trust which Logan afforded any new person in his life, but the turn around to love was speedy, even for my romantic nature.

I thought their respective offspring did help to show their matching fundamental goodness, even if they had polar opposite ways of dealing with their natural fears of being a good parent. This theme, which has run through all the books, is well written and provides much of the fun parts of the book.

I am looking forward to the guys at Redcars getting their stories told in future books.

I have read every book in the series so far. You can read this book as a standalone.

I was excited, jumping into this book because I enjoyed previous books in the series. I had a really hard time getting through this book. I put it down and tried several times. It didn't work for me. I didn't feel the connection between Logan and Gray, especially how fast it went. Then the whole documentary thing just seemed weird to me. I think if the documentary aspect was removed, I might have been more engaged. I'll continue with the series; everyone isn't going to love every book and that was the case for me with this one.
