The final book in the Montana Rescue series proves the saying, “saved the best for last”. The story of Pete and Jess will give readers what they have been longing for in the best romance installment with the most suspense yet.
Pete Brooks has just about given up on love. He’s waited a year for the woman he loves to come back to town only to have her show up engaged to another man. Pete has been working in search and rescue and the last few missions he has been a part of have not had a happy ending, causing him to wonder if he wants to continue the work. Jess Tagg has come back to Montana to try and see if Pete still wants to be with her but before she can explain what has been happening in her life Pete blows up at her. She leaves with a friend, Esme Shaw, they are run off the road and taken hostage deep into the Montana wilderness. They don’t know who has taken them but they are injured and know if someone doesn’t come to rescue them soon it will be too late. Pete and the rest of the PEAK Rescue Team realize they are missing and set out on their most emotional rescue mission yet.
I have loved every one of the Montana Rescue books and the different characters they have focused on. I especially loved the way all the characters intertwine throughout the different installments and readers get to see them grow outside of the book of their focus. Saving Pete and Jess’s story for last was a brilliant idea; to me, their story was especially interesting. They both wanted what they thought they couldn’t have and almost gave up but their hearts just wouldn’t let them. This story goes to show that if something is worth having it is worth fighting for and Jess and Pete had to fight especially hard for their love. One of the things that made this romance so good is interesting because it has to do with the lack of time the characters actually spent together and interacted with each other. They worked hard to be together and the way they have to fight the elements and others around them shows the passion they have for each other. The secondary characters were especially well written. Esme and the battle she was having to face brought an extra tension to the story and made the pages turn even faster. Even though this is the last in the series it can also be read as a standalone and the reader will still enjoy the story. I do however recommend reading the whole series, mainly because the stories are so good and should all be enjoyed. I am sad to see the series come to an end. I have invested a lot of time and emotion in the characters and will miss seeing what happens with them next. The ending was done just as I thought it should be and all the loose ends throughout the books were tied up quite nicely.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
