Michael Hardin is back in Ellery to face his past. The victim of a hate crime, he has memories that lie just out of his reach and nightmares that won’t leave him alone.
Alex Casey loves Michael but he completely ruined everything by treating Michael like someone who needed to be wrapped in cotton wool.
Can Michael discover more about his past and find love with Alex?
New cover, edited and with two new chapters.
There is no pretentiousness when reading R.J. Scott’s Ellery Mountain series, and The Agent and the Model did not disappoint. The title is exactly what we find; modeling agency owner Alex and model Mikey form a professional relationship turned personal one, with pitfalls that require healing. After Mikey was attacked six years prior, he left the sanctuary of Ellery to enter the world of modeling only to find himself attacked again, and Alex’s need to protect him, only compounded the problem by not discussing Mikey’s potential stalker.
Mikey returned to Ellery, where his life as a teenager under the careful guidance of his Nana and the men of the Friday night jaunts, formed a protective cocoon around him. The dynamics between Mikey and Alex was heartfelt and sweet as each man attempted to get past the hurt and sorrow they had created in their budding relationship. Along with some loving guidance from Norma-Jean and our resident Ellery Mountain men, Mikey and Alex took the chance to enhance their relationship and moved forward.
Scenes brought me to tears as Ms. Scott crafted Mikey’s memories of his attack and the soul-wrenching affect which permeated his life.
Each book in the Ellery Mountain series has added a new and multi-dimensional aspect to the stories and the lives of the characters and I can’t believe that six years have passed since we first met Finn and Max. The men are getting married, children are on the way and the ever-sound life on Ellery Mountain remains steadfast and resolute.
As always, Ms. Scott has left me yearning for more but completely satisfied in what I have read. The enhanced version of The Agent and the Model is pure S.E.X.
