When they spend time alone on a Montana mountainside will Tyler ever convince Martin that like sapphires, love is worth searching for?
Martin’s name was the very last on a kill list. The son of a murderer, he’s had no childhood; lost in a horrific holding pattern of death that turned his heart to stone. Thanks to the man who called him brave and spared his life, he no longer has to look over his shoulder, but he does have one question. Why did Justin let him live?
Tyler Colby has identified a major flaw in the seismic mapping system used to monitor earthquake activity. Sent to Crooked Tree by his employer, the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology, he is tasked with adding a new remote station to the network. The installation should be his entire focus, but the lure of sapphires and his attraction to a heartbroken young man called Martin is enough to make him want more?
I have to be completely honest when I say that this was a good read. But I have to also be completely honest when I say I was lost because I did not read the previous books in this series and I think I would have enjoyed this book more if I had. I do believe this is one of those books that needs to be stated that it is not a standalone because I felt I was missing some really valuable information where the main character was concerned. For this reason right here I was not able to get into this book maybe as much as I would have had it read the books before this one in the series.
Martin in my opinion is one of those people that is just plain lost. He does not know where he fits into what world and he does not have a lot of hope left for him. The only thing really on his radar is seeking answers from Justin, someone he knew in his past.
When he shows up in Montana in hopes to get those answers so then maybe he can find a way of moving forward, he never expected Justin to not only not answer his questions but to set him up at the Ranch to help in out as well. That is the last thing Martin expected and honestly the last thing he wanted as well. But if he is going to get those answers then he is going to have to stick around, for a while at least.
Tyler is at Crooked Tree Ranch to help place the next seismic tracker for an early warning system for earthquakes. He never expected to find himself attracted to a man named Martin. Martin is not much of a talker and he he seems very distant and lonely, maybe even sad. But Tyler is attracted to him.
Though Martin also feels attraction to Tyler as well, he knows that is the last thing he needs. So instead of getting close, he runs from each interaction instead. Well at least until he is unable to run anymore.
Can two men that are so different find a way to maybe make each other happy? Can Martin get over the things in his past and look to the future?
This was a good read but like I said I would suggest reading the other books first because I felt so lost where Martin was concerned. I hate feeling that way when I am reading and feeling like I spend more time trying to catch up or figure out what is going on then I am just enjoying the read. I love RJ Scott and I plan to read more books by RJ in the future.
