      1 = did not like itNo, no digo que este libro sea malo, sólo que a mí, no me ha gustadoTras un DNF al 55%, no sé qué siroco me dio ayer, que por la noche lo terminé, total eran ciento y poco páginas, y no tenía nada mejor que hacer Dormir hubiera sido mucha mejor opciónLa historia que se plantea necesita más páginas, muchas más, la relación entre Jason y Mark queda forzada, absolutamente insta y con muy poco fundamento, si es que hubo una conexión kármica en el pasado que les lleva [...]

      I had a really bad day yesterday, a terrible-news kind of day, and needed to lose myself in a story. How opportune this story arrived on my Kindle. :) I loved the whole idea of The Bucket List - two men who knew each other in their youth, reunited to carry out the last wishes of their brother/best friend. It was a tender story, that shared the grief of the two men as they followed Andrew's wishes.Mark is a closeted soapy star and the bucket list forces him to face issues that he had hidden deep [...]

      5 Teary-Eyed Stars For a very sad and at the same time, very romantic story which had me swooning one paragraph then crying the very next. The romantic part of this story was lovely. I really liked how she wrote Mark & Jason together. I am still sighing over them. Their romance was slow-building and believable. They TALKED about their budding feelings many times instead of running away from them or assuming things, which is why RJ Scott is an auto-buy for me. Now on to the sad part of this s [...]

      Delightfully touching little story from RJ, showcasing some of the best tourist hotspots in the UK and 2 guys, Jason and Mark, brought together by a dead man's bucket list. High 5 for the ending RJ, putting that bigoted pig firmly in his place. 4 stars from me.

      Nice, light, sweet read. But a little bitter at the same time. I have a hate love relationship with grieving stories.It always can make me cry.I need more information about that asshole Ted, and how it ended with him and Mark, didn't satisfied me.

      Original Blog Post: eARC Review, Excerpt & #Giveaway: The Bucket List by RJ ScottReview by: multitaskingmommaMy Rating: 4.5 of 5 StarsJason Craig had to go to a shoot and get in touch with soap star, Mark Wesley. Not because he was secretly stalking the actor, it was because he had been asked to do so by his brother. When Mark meets Jason, it is to learn that the 'keeper of his secrets' had died and one of Andrew's last requests was that he and Jason were to live out the list of things he ha [...]

      This was a slow burn romancea cross between second chance/friends to loversmple, sweet, no angst, no drama, no miscommunicationbut lots of emotionsJason going through the bucket list on behalf of his brother, for memories for Andrew's sonde my heart ache. I wish a loved one had the time to make something similar to not make his passing so raw, something to make me still feel closeries are so very precious .I liked the pace of the story, nothing frantic with Jason and Mark's relationship and thei [...]

      This book was both at times, heartbreakingly sad and incredibly romantic. While there are other books like this, it takes a great author to find a balance where neither overpower the other. This book had the potential to be full of angst. I'll admit I was a little worried after reading the blurb. However, it wasn't. The "sad" never became overwhelming, and the "light" didn't take away from the poignancy of the whole either. Overall it's a beautiful, romantic love story. A love story created out [...]

      Sometimes other people know us better than we know ourselves. This story was sad and sweet. Jason's brother, Andrew has just died and he is fulfilling his brothers wishes. One of which is to drag an old boyhood chum along to some of the places on the bucket list he had made. The two MC are sweet and caring. It was nice to see them talk about the lives and feelings. To really get to know each other again and bond over the loss of their brother/friend. It was fun to watch them fall in love. Was th [...]

      This started out as a blog story that I was instantly hooked on. We all waited mostly patiently,sometimes not so much, every week for a new part of it to pop up. So exciting that it was made into a book and that we finally get the ending we were all hoping for! An amazing story of loss, acceptance, a dreaded class reunion, and we all know how awful THOSE can be and a little bit of justice. In the end it is all about the love that Jason and Mark find together and the journey they take in Andrew's [...]

    • Lori says:

      I thoroughly enjoyed this story by RJ Scott that told of two friends, Jason and Mark, reconnecting after the death of Jason's brother, Andrew.FAcing demons from the past and being able to fully let go of it is a central theme in this story and it is well written. I had an overwhelming sense of sadness when I started reading for Andrew's death even though this has occurred before the start of out story. It reminded me that we all need to take stock sometimes and think about what is important to u [...]

      I like matchmakers. Even the slightly presumptuous ones. And while this story started in tragedy, several, to be precise, it was full of hope and love and determination. The two main characters were sweet people and seeing them reconnect, grieve and fall in love thanks to a bit of a meddling of a man trying to right past wrongs, was a real treat. The ending was a little abrupt but I was glad that things worked out for all and people got they just deserts.

      rated it up I liked this story but it could have been so much more !so that is why i come to 3.5 starsthe Chemistry is obviously there between jason and max but i felt constantly that there was something missing that it went so fast etcI love Rj Scott her books so this one is no exception to thatHer way of writing is comfortable and easy and the story Always finds a way to get to you but I honestly believe with this story it could have been so much more

    • Tammy says:

      I really liked this book! The older brother dies and asks Jason to fulfill his bucket list. Looks up Mark which is first on the list and they work to cross off things on the list. They meet when they are young and while working on the list realize they have feelings for each other. Just a little drama but a very feel good story!

    • Alex Clarke says:

      this is the story of a brother, who is following his dead brother's will. This is the story of a soap star who is hiding in the closet. This is the story of undying loves : love for a brother and love for a long lost friend. If this romance doesn't break your heart, I'll be damned ! Sweet and strong and sad and lovely. This is definitely a must read, as every RJ Scott's books are

      You take a little bit of sad, add a pinch of ugly, a dash of romance, a sprinkle of interesting locations and you get this book. It was well balanced and not very deep helping to maintain a nice light feel.

      4 star review by VickiWhat a sweet story of healing and love….Jason Craig’s brother Andrew dies, and leaves Jason with a to-do list. First on that list is to find Andrew’s childhood friend, Mark Wesley, now a soap opera actor living in LA, a days drive away from the podunk town they lived in as kids.

    • Joyfully Jay says:

      A Joyfully Jay review. 4 starsThe Bucket List is a sweet story with a nice bit of travelogue thrown in. It really is focused on two main parts. The first is Mark and Jason’s growing relationship, and I found I really liked them together. They are both good guys, sweet and caring and connected by their shared grief. Jason is still so clearly struggling with the loss of his big brother. The experience of visiting these places that were important to Andrew is cathartic, but also difficult for him [...]
