Luke receives a letter from the boy who attacked her when Luke was younger. In the letter, Ryan (the attacker) tells Luke that he is sorry for what he has done. Then, few days later, when Luke and Cam and Mitchell (Luke's best friend) and Megan (Luke's sister) are out together, someone slashes Luke's tires. It's all built up that when one of the bullies comes to give another threat to Luke, he snaps ...

Mandy*reads obsessively*
I hate having to wait between these stories! I want and I want more now! :)
Anyway poor Luke, my heart breaks for him but I am so glad he has his mom, friends and Cam!
I know things will get better for him, but it's hard to read about all the crap he is going through, now I just have to wait for the next one!

I didn't think it was possible for this series to get any better, but the third volume proved me wrong (and I couldn't be happier!). Luke and Cameron are amazing together, and when their relationship is really tested by bullies and an intrusion from Luke's past, they need to be stronger than ever.

Luke has stood up to the bullying for a while, but dealing with one of the worst of his tormentors, one who physically attacked him a few years ago and is now in prison, takes a lot of courage. It also
Beautiful! Cam and Luke are both just the biggest sweethearts, so forgiving and hopeful and brave.

This is such an inspiring series: acknowledging the bullying and the teasing, but doing it in the most amazingly hopeful way.

The only thing I'm left wanting at the end of this one is that every Luke out there could have a Cam and a Mitchell to stand beside them.

That being said, though, I'm reminded of all the times Luke didnt have them with him and made some really tough choices on his own. Good, i
I love this series and I have been waiting for this story. It was so worth the wait. This was an emotional read and you really feel for all Luke is struggling to work through. Cam was his usual amazing and wonderful self. I loved Mitchell and Megan. I loved the whole story.

Here's hoping we get to visit all of these characters again soon. :)
When his dad left he had promised her he would be her strength- he'd only been eight but he knew then he would never want to do anything to hurt her.

I imagined a small Luke telling this to his mom when their world seemed to fall apart. It was heartfelt and heartwarming. Seeing an innocent eight year old boy trying to be a brave man in a cruel world. It really did touch me. Apparently, this is the final book in the Love Series and probably the best among the first two. Because the minor characte

I really liked this latest installment of Cam and Luke's story. This one takes a decidedly dark turn which I think is right for this couple. All that Luke has endured pushes him to a level he never thought he'd reach - but the truth is there's that place where we all just snap. I know that twice in my life it has happened to me. Once I was able to pull back and also had some control in the situation because it was only verbal and I was the guy's boss. The second time it happened, I was lucky I w ...more

'Love is in the Message' by RJ Scott is the third book in the 'Love is...' series which follows Luke and Cameron through the trials and tribulations of two teenaged young men in love.

A situation arises where Luke is forced to face demons which have haunted him in the past and have kept him in passive mode. These circumstances also afford him an opportunity for forgiveness and closure. As the homophobic threats escalate, Luke is forced to take a stand, regardless of the consequences. The time for
I love this series and this is just one more wonderful story by R.J. Scott.
Luke is such a wonderful brave young man, going thru so much, still dealing with what happened to him in the past and being bullied by Eddie and his stooges, just for being who he is. At this stage his life seems pretty awful but he manages to be kind and forgiving to those who certainly don't deserve it, he doesn't let his heart be consumed by hate, instead he holds on to what really matters to him, his family, his best

This is the third in the love series, telling the story of Cam and Luke, high school students who are facing their last year of high school with some bullies and bigots. Their friends, Mitchell and Dan, are still amazing but the jerks are worse than ever. Cam has less to deal with, as he was captain of the football team and a popular guy, but Luke has been a target for years. He is a “nerd”, brainy instead of athletic, and he’s been known as gay for much longer
Luke is such a wonderful character. life has thrown so much at him and he is trying to muddle though and he feels so much and he has this image of how he should react and he feels he is nt living up to it. But I really liked his reply to the letter, it speaks so much of the kind of person he is that he was able to let go of his anger and hate and concentrate on all the people he has in his life that love him. And I liked they were making plans even though Luke was a little reluctant about accept ...more
...Are you doing it on purpose, RJ?!

It was, again, too short!

...And that's the only "complaint" I have!

Any chance to get another sequel? I would like to know if Mitchell and Megan get together after all!

As for Cam & Luke~ I wanna read more of them!
If you've read my reviews of the first two books, you pretty much know what to expect. These are short and sweet books, with a surprisingly high level of character development -- I feel like I know and understand Cameron and Luke, and even the other minor characters to some degree. This one is just as sweet as the others in Cam and Luke's growing relationship, and still deals with the more complicated side of being 'out' in a school -- the jeering, bullying, etc, and hints at worse in Luke's pas ...more
Another wonderful story in this series. Luke is such a brave young man. And Cameron is perfect for him. Don’t forget to have tissues on hand when you read this. So far, it’s my favorite of the series.
for me this story this keeps getting better and better.

I am hoping this isn't the last book, because even though everything is being solved etc, I doesn't feel like this should be the end.

I love the fact that Luke took a stand against the bully defending what mattered to him and that at the end of the day he could let out his actual feelings, about the letter and the bully, this shows that he is just growing with each challenge....
I also realized that he is very insecure and is technically just
I love these books except every time I finish one I think 'That's it?!?!' They are so short! I always want more.

Best of this series so far. It gets more physically and emotionally violent, more is exposed, and I really hope Scott comes out with the next soon!

"Luke had had so much thrown at him over the last few years that a few scratches in paintwork were the least of this worries. Marks in metal could be removed; scars in skin and inside a person were much harder to heal."

Luke feels authentically juvenile, yet mature at the same time, and I love Cam and his unwavering support and understanding. It's real
I love this series, it started so sweet with Jamie's crush on Cam, progressing to starting a relationship and how will that work for them, especially with Jamie keeping from both his bestfriend and his boyfriend what is happening to him when they are not around and this time, a visit from the past and what effect that has on the present as well as the future.

Although being true to his heart is new for Cam, he wants to take the bull by the horns and be out in the open, which scares Jamie because
This was my least favorite of the 3 books in this short series.
Book 1 started out really sweet. Book 2 was a bit problematic, but I still liked it. Book 3… just had more problems, without the cuteness that saved book 2 for me.

Nice boys, Luke and Cam, but a little too much drama for me.

This calls for a Jake picture to cheer me up.
Boy when they say if you keep your problems bottled up at some point you'll explode was so true for Luke. But I do have to say I am so proud of him for finally standing up for himself, it was the right thing to do. I love Cam and love that he puts Luke front and center of his life, he truly loves Luke and isn't afraid to do so. Beautiful story came out of such pain and anguish.

If you let it end here, I'm gonna be so f*cking pissed!!! I want more
I could truly feel the caring and the building of emotions along with the love both characters felt with one another. I enjoyed all three books in the set where they actually connected and the storyline is great. It kept me captivated.

My only wish is it would have been great to see them again together in later years. Like one of those 'Where are that at now?' type of stories.

Nicely written and well put out there. Worth taking the time to read.

Learning about the past and what brutal things kids are capable of doing to others - just because they don't fit their image of whatever stupid fantasy world they want to belong - was quite touching.

Sadly it's the last of the series, I guess. It would always be fun to continue to follow their journey out of High School, simply because the writing is really lovely and the characters totally lovable!

It will be worth your time - so give it a go! :)

I love Luke and Cam, I really would like a book 4 and it too be longer because these too are adorable. I am not sure what the line is between a YA and Adult book but I would love to read about there journey and how there relationship develops.

loved these set of three books..a story of a gay teenager overcoming bullying and his new boyfriend a football captain learning how to deal with coming out...another great short by rj scott x
A very emotionally charged story that had my stomach in knots! So proud of Luke for finally standing up to Eddie and for writing Ryan back. Can't wait for the next installment.
I just love this series. It's beautiful, real, emotional, and just wonderfully written. Always look forward to reading more in this series.
