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.

KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Awesome!June 8, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Susan May Warren delivers another heart-stopping, angst-riddled romance that kept me both yearning and dreading reaching the last page. And now that I have, I am in a bit of a reader funk...but not for long because Book Three, A Matter of Trust, comes out in just one month! Anticipation is mounting! I love the members of the PEAK Rescue Team and I won't be satisfied until I have the scoop on each and every one of them.
Free-spirited Willow with her unorthodox upbringing and unrequited love drew me in right from the start. Her past is an emotional minefield that has her feeling 'less than'. She has yet to figure out that it's okay to be a work in progress...especially in God's Kingdom.
Deputy Sam Brooks is definitely hero material -- in a flawed kind of way. He's the guy you can always count on.The take action, fix-it kind of guy...but he's also the one who needs to be in control and there's a boulder size chip on his shoulder which complicates all his relationships -- especially with his kid brother, Pete. (Insert happy swoon here because the author gives us a delectable peek into Pete's love life...well, the potential for one which is sure to be fleshed out in a future book...pretty please Ms. Warren.)
I so appreciate the solid inspirational thread that winds its way throughout these characters lives...and consequently into mine. Both Willow and Sam are Christians but, like all of us, they are in need of divine rescuing. Harsh circumstances refine them as individuals and as a couple and there are so many wonderful faith discussions that ministered to me in a powerful way. Exactly what I love to find in a Christian Fiction novel.
A stupendous addition to the Montana Rescue series (which reads really well as a standalone, by the way. All the books do.)

But when her younger sister Willow keeps showing up, he has a hard time accepting that the perfect life he had outlined, might not be what's best for him. Willow shows him how to live life to the fullest and to forgive. Willow might be showing Sam where he needs to change, but she has some changes in her own life that desperately need to happen before she can move on as well.
The author has a pattern of writing about multiple couples in each book. A two in one romance type of thing. But this worked against me this time. I really couldn't keep everyone straight. I had to keep stopping to remind myself who went with whom and who was mad at whom again and again. It was incredibly confusing. I'd read the first book in the series, but it's been long enough that I'd forgotten portions and had to go back and flip through to remind myself what happened. So I wouldn't recommend this book as a stand-alone. Overall it was well written and had an interesting plot. I liked the spiritual thoughts that were spread liberally throughout the book. But the multiple characters and massive amounts of emotional drama just didn't do it for me this time. Because I couldn't connect with the characters, I felt more frustration at their antics than empathy. If you enjoy lots of angst and emotional drama with a splash of suspense and lots of spiritual moments than this would definitely be a book you would enjoy.

Jeanne TColoradoAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Rescue MeGreat ReadApril 6, 2017Jeanne TColoradoAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What happens when there's an accidental kiss? Lots of fireworks and an unlocking of truth, that's what.
Willow Rose, sweet and all-heart, has dreams of being a youth pastor. She has a heart that yearns to show kids what life can look like when God is at the helm. Only not once, but twice, the kids in her care end up in precarious situations. And to make her life more interesting, she's loved Sam Brooks, her sister's boyfriend, for as long as she can remember.
Sam Brooks is dating the girl of his dreams. Or so he thinks until that girl's younger sister kisses him. Something unlocks in his heart, even as he finds himself frustrated with himself for kissing her . . . and liking it.
When Willow, Sam, and a van full of teens find themselves in a dangerous situation in Glacier National Park, the two of them must work together to get everyone out alive. And, in the process, they each face their own greatest fears and greatest doubts.
I loved the chemistry between Willow and Sam. Their unexpected romance unfolds so beautifully as they work to rescue the teens. Their layers make them fun, believable, and memorable. I found myself thinking about these two, and other characters on the SAR team when I wasn't reading the book. A beautiful romance, to be sure.
And the setting? Glacier National Park is the perfect place to set the story, with its amazing beauty but unforgiving dangers, the tension ran high throughout the story.
The spiritual messages resonated with this girl's heart.
Warren is a master at creating the unexpected. The story took twists and turns I didnt anticipate and left me wanting to continue reading deep into the night.
If you're looking for a unique story with wonderful characters and unexpected twists, Rescue Me should be at the top of your list.

This book follows the Rescue crew as part of them race to find the others who are lost and in immense danger. The tension is high as the stakes are immense. Yet there are moments that dig deep and took me to places I wanted to linger. Susan May Warren is a masterful author, and this book showcases her talents. Those who love a romance with lots of action but not necessarily suspense, will adore this book. Romance readers will love it as well.
Just Commonly5 Stars Out Of 5Rescue Me is a keeper and a must readMarch 13, 2017Just CommonlyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0"...God is watching over their lives, even if they feel like they're lost, or alone, or overwhelmed . . ." (110)
Take a deep breath, and take a moment to look at the cover of Rescue Me by Susan May Warren. Now sigh. Wow! And that, my friends is one enticing cover, but that's not all. The moment you open this book and start reading about Sam, Willow, Sierra, Pete and Jess you will be so engrossed in their lives, you can't help but go onto the next page. That's Rescue Me.
Despite the handsome cover model, I could almost do a quick shake of Sam. He's so wound up. So burden by his grief and anger that he's not seeing. He's not seeing his brother, his 'girlfriend', himself and most definitely not seeing Willow and her heart. Willow, sweet and generous in nature and the sister of Sam's girlfriend. Now how is that going to work out? In the perfect way possible. Sam and Willow, one uptight, the other a free spirit, yet they bring out the best of each other. All the supporting characters were just spot on. I can't wait to catch up on the rest of them, Pete and Jess, Ian and Sierra and Gage.
"...for a second just wanted to grab her and tell her, in a crazy, impulsive declaration, that he would change his world for her..." (192)
With romance (the kisses!), in-depth character development, profound message of God's grace, and not to mention the action-packed story-line that will have your heart pounding with excitement, Rescue Me is a keeper and a must read. It is for sure my favorite Susan May Warren novel (granted this is only the third one of her novels I've read). Pick your's up now.
"It's all about letting God in, with his grace to forgive, to heal. God's light can overtake the darkness." (220)
