The Doctor and the Bad Boy was a fantastic addition to the Ellery Mountain series. Tranquility and peace are two words that came to mind as I read the book. Finally, Dr. Liam is rewarded for all his good work with a man of his own, Mitchell. Mitchell returned to Ellery Mountain with his niece in tow as part owner of Ellery Resorts. But, Mitchell had a past, a past of alcoholism which he dealt with every day, a tarnished reputation that with the assistance of Liam, all good things are brought out.
Liam and Mitchell met for the first time as his niece was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery for appendicitis. Sparks flew and curiosity abound as instant attraction was apparent.
R.J. Scott gave life to each of the Ellery Mountain books as each dealt with realistic issues that are attainably able to be solved. The Doctor and the Bad Boy delivered tenderheartedness and familial love that spoke of how the world should really be. Friends came together to help a stranger simply because it was the right thing to do. Mitchell became a part of Liam’s life and by default he became a part of the lives of the Friday night crew.
Ms. Scott has a way of making the reader feel as if you too could be a part of the bond that cultivated between the group of men. The Doctor and the Bad Boy showed that life can come full circle and when one is willing to take the next step, good things await. Blood only shows a DNA connection between people, but true family are the people who stick by you as they get to know you and more importantly when they know you; they are still there, even with your misgivings. R.J. Scott wrote a beautiful contemporary romance that never sugar coated the pitfalls of life, but delivered a well- crafted story of acceptance and love.
