    Another great series from RJ Scott.

    A Reason to Stay was released in 2014 but I only discovered RJ Scott's writing in early 2016. I fell in love with her writing and have slowly been making my way through her extensive backlist. Aiden Coleman and Viktor Zavodny had a short-lived relationship when they were in high school. Aiden believed he was in love with Viktor then but Viktor could only think about realizing his dream of becoming a Navy SEAL. Many years later, Viktor returns home to recuperate after being injured while performing his SEAL duties. Aiden doesn't want to want Viktor but he just can't seem to help himself and during Viktor's recuperation they become involved again. But just like years before, Viktor leaves to return to the Navy. Two years later Viktor is called back home when his young nephew, Ben, is found seriously injured. Aiden, a deputy sheriff has taken point on the investigation and Viktor wants to be involved. This adds to the tension between these two and lends an interesting conflict to the story. In addition, there is the mystery behind Ben's injuries and how Viktor and Aiden must work together to solve it. Once again, RJ Scott has written a story that I couldn't put down once I started. The mystery and intrigue kept me engaged from beginning to end. For any fans of her Sanctuary series, there are references to a few characters from that series. (Don't worry if you haven't read those books; you don't have to in order to enjoy this one). The sexy time between Aiden and Viktor is hot and I loved the epilogue. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this series. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

    A Reason To Stay

    In a slight change to R.J. Scott's writing style, A Reason to Stay is a mystery first and foremost, with romance coming in second. Now, don't get me wrong, there is romance here. Viktor and Aiden have known each other for years, and definitely have a history between them - with Viktor being the one who leaves every time. Aiden is the one who stays behind, nursing a broken heart, and determined that it won't happen again. However, when Viktor's nephew gets hurt, Viktor is pulled back home, to everyone he left behind, and becomes neck-deep in intrigue and mystery. With characters and situations given from the Sanctuary series, you get an idea of what might happen, if Viktor stops being such an arse. Instead, he focuses on protecting his nephew, even if it means going against what everyone says, including others in his family. I have to say though, I'm not sure if kudos deserve to be given to Aiden or not! lol The first time Viktor left, put it down to youth. The second time, painful. I don't know if I would have given him a third time!!! However, Aiden did, and it becomes a gripping part of the story. There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The story is fast-paced, with plenty of characters and situations to keep your attention. I loved the epilogue, that gives you a hint of what happened next. I'm hoping to catch up with these two in the next book in this series, although I'm not sure if they are all standalones. Definitely recommended by me. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
