Tour & Book Review – Save The Date by RJ Scott and V.L. Locey

A big welcome to RJ Scott and V.L. Locey as part of their review tour with Signal Boost Promotions for Save The Date.

Review

I loved this feel good conclusion to the Harrisburg Railers series. Although the story is Ten and Jared’s and their happy ending, it does a wonderful job in showcasing their friends and family too. One of the huge strengths of this series, and why I got hooked on stories about hockey players when I never watch sport, is the strong feeling of family amongst the team. This story is no different in that regard, and I loved how everyone came together to make Ten and Jared’s day perfect. I found myself smiling through a lot of this story, and particularly liked how everyone’s personalities came into play to shape the wedding preparations and the story.

I wasn’t sure whether I should be disturbed or amused by Ten’s mother’s ‘helpful’ conversation with him early on in the story. Far too much information, and I love her. As with many weddings, everyone else wades in to make it a perfect day, while losing sight of who Ten and Jared are.

I loved the scenes that showed just how genuine these guys are, and how—despite everything else going on—they are approachable, stop to talk to kids, and make time to help anyone. It’s another reason why I enjoy reading about these stories. Yes, these guys are big stars, and rich, yet none of it has gone to their heads, and they’re still very human and down to earth.

The references to previous events in the series are great, as is the hint of the future. I loved Jared’s conversation with Ryker, and the glimpse of the depth of their relationship.
No wanting to give away spoilers, I’ll just say that I thought the wedding itself was beautiful, and their vows very heartfelt, and very them. Although it’s a story that I think is more fully enjoyed if you’re familiar with the series, I started reading this series with the later books, have to play catchup with the earlier books, yet still found this conclusion to the series very satisfying, lovely read, and already want to read the next series.

I’d recommend Save the Date to readers who enjoy a sweet heartfelt story with a good dash of humour, and very real characters. 5 out of 5 stars.

Ever since he first set foot in Harrisburg, Tennant’s life has been a rollercoaster. Ups and downs too numerous to mention, hard knocks and championship rings. Through all of those monumental moments, one thing has been a constant for him, Jared Madsen. Now that their wedding day is drawing nearer, Ten is seriously considering eloping. He would, if not for his mother, his father, his brothers, the wedding planner, the guests, the cake, the press, and the team. Oh, and then there’s his best friend, who is vying for the job of ringmaster of the wedding circus. Would sneaking off during the night with Jared and skipping to the honeymoon part of the festivities really be all that bad?


When Jared proposed to Ten, he imagined a quiet wedding, on a beach somewhere, with family, and maybe the team. But life gets complicated with Ten’s warring brothers, a Russian goalie with a love of sequins, and a bachelor party organized by Adler. When Trent sends them a wedding planner, every spare hour is filled with choosing invitations, cake tasting, and finding a rose in the perfect shade of green. Add in Layton organizing a press conference, and suddenly their private wedding is destined to become a media sensation. Is it wrong to think seriously about kidnapping Ten and spiriting him away to a small deserted island?


Adler organizing the bachelor party, Trent supplying the wedding planner, and Stan writing a speech. What can possibly go wrong?

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
