Wait for Me by Susan May Warren

The appropriately titled final book of the Montana Rescue series, Wait for Me by Susan May Warren has finally arrived!

about the book

Pete Brooks can’t believe he’s waited an entire year for Jess Tagg to return to Montana, only to have her break his heart by getting engaged to her ex-fiancé. Worse, a series of mistakes on the job have cost lives, and Pete isn’t sure he wants to continue to work in Search and Rescue. Maybe if he can just get over Jess, he can figure out how to move forward.

EMT Jess Tagg has returned to Montana to finally give her heart to Pete, but it seems he’s no longer interested. When a terrible fight between them sparks an impulsive decision, she finds herself crashed on the side of a highway along with Esme Shaw. And just when she thinks things couldn’t get any worse, she and Esme are taken captive and into the untamed Montana wilderness—with murderous intent.

Now Pete and the other PEAK Rescue Team members are in a race against time, the elements, and the actions of a vengeful man. Pete will have to use everything he’s learned to find Jess and Esme—and pray that his past mistakes don’t cost him the life of the woman he can’t stop loving.

my thoughts

I picked this book up and quite literally could not put it down until I finished reading it. Wait for Me is worth every hour of sleep sacrificed and then some! There isn’t anything boring or predictable about this highly anticipated romance.

Pete is irresistibly charming and courageous to boot. His surprising vulnerability makes me love him even more. When those tough (and a little bit wild) rescuer types are willing to reveal their raw and honest selves, that is to be cherished. Pete gets bonus points for persistence and grand gestures and that’s all I’m going to say about that (this is a spoiler-free zone).

Jess is torn between two lives and two fiancés. Before you dismiss this situation as a character flaw, walk a mile in her shoes (I’ll pass on the stilettos, thanks). Has she messed up? Probably. (Haven’t we all?!) But I’m pretty sure there isn’t a guidebook for reconciling two very different lifestyles while keeping everyone in your life happy and bless her heart, that’s exactly what tender-hearted Jess wants to do.

The delightful complexity and pulse rocking adventure readers have come to associate with Warren’s expansive fictional universe shines once more in this exciting Montana Rescue series conclusion. I personally plan to binge read the entire series at my earliest opportunity!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
