When Deputy Sam Brooks commits to something, nothing can sway him–not just on the job as liaison between the Mercy Falls sheriff’s department and PEAK Rescue, but in his private life. He’s the one who stuck around to take care of his mother after his father’s accidental death. And he’s the one—perhaps the only one—who believes Sierra Rose is the perfect girl for him. Safe, practical, and organized, she’s nothing like her hippie, impulsive, bleeding heart sister, Willow.
Willow, however, has been in love with Sam Brooks for as long as she can remember. But she wants her sister to have a happy ending. Besides, Willow has other things to focus on–namely, nabbing the job as youth pastor for her small-town church. Best thing for her to do is to purge Sam from her heart.
Neither can predict the events that will bring them together in a fight for their lives in the forbidding wilderness of Glacier National Park. Stranded, injured, and with the winter weather closing in, Sam and Willow will have to work together to save a crew of terrified teenagers. As they fight to survive, they might just discover a new hope for love.
Let’s do a little Rescue Me countdown…
Three things not to be tamed: two reluctant hearts and the wilderness!
Two varieties of heart pounding excitement: adventure and romance!
One essential skill: SURVIVAL!
Sam Brooks is normally the personification of calm, cool, and collected. I can see him gracing the cover of Mr. Steady magazine. Sam is loyal, dedicated, and ready to settle down with someone special and become a family man. He’s determined to cross that relationship bridge with his girlfriend Sierra and hope his heart catches up with his logic.
Willow is a free spirit from an unconventional upbringing yet there’s nothing she’d like more than to put down roots and experience permanence in her life. She wears her heart on her sleeve and that heart has been pining after a handsome deputy for quite some time. Willow is passionate about sharing her faith and volunteering as a youth leader for her church.
Reconnecting with the PEAK team and learning more about the way they work and live together in their small community felt like coming home to my home away from home (I love the Pacific Northwest and majestic Glacier National Park is on my bucket list!) The unpredictable forces of nature and untamed wilderness keep throwing the team for a loop. I have a feeling this entire series is going to end up on my all-time favorites list!
I requested the opportunity to read and review this book through NetGalley and Revell Reads. The opinions expressed are my own.
