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.
Martin had been mentioned previously in this series as someone who played a pivotal role in both Justin’s and Adam’s stories. Back then, I had just a fleeting moment of wondering about him regarding that role, and after hearing his full story here I couldn’t help but feel for him and what he went through.
Martin and Tyler are opposites in regards to their personalities. Martin is shy and quiet, preferring solitude and calm and can come across as abrupt, gruff, and indifferent when faced with anything that disrupts his peace. Tyler on the other hand, if there’s quiet then he is compelled to chat animatedly—about almost anything under the sun—to fill that silence. Martin finds that an annoyance, though gradually that shifts to acceptance and eventually he finds it soothing.
Martin’s father and the circumstances in which he placed Martin really did a number on him, so my sympathy levels were high throughout this story. Tyler is a great match for him, and hurt/comfort is definitely a theme here. Though the time frame of the book is not long, it doesn’t really come across as insta-love, or at least it didn’t to me.
This story adds nicely to the Montana series, and helps bring a certain amount of closure to Justin and Adam as well. While I suppose you could read this on its own, I would strongly suggest reading the series in order—or at least The Rancher’s Son and A Cowboy’s Home—to truly appreciate this book. Montana Sky was a 4-star read for me, and is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.
