My Rating: 4 stars
Ranger’s Courage is certainly a story that will get your emotions up, but also will have you slowing down as you watch two people who obviously are attracted to each other discover what their future holds. Jake is a reclusive ranger, a man who has let his guilt from the past overtake most aspects of his life today. He’s hiding in plain sight in many ways, with his own demons ever at his side. Sari has lost herself in her work with tracking dogs, she doesn’t let anyone into her life easily. There is an almost instant attraction between them, yet it will take a while, trust, and some dealing with the past before they really have a chance at lasting happiness.
I don’t want to give the impression that this is a slow book, it’s not… the reality of this couple’s individual pasts is slow to be revealed. I enjoyed their story, got caught up in the search and rescues that they did together. Yet, I have the feeling that their romance is the happy ending for now type. Each has great difficulty in leaving the past behind and trusting that they are worth anyone caring about in the now. I feel that this couple is still growing together, and hope that we see then in the next story as they continue their journey to a truly happy ending. It’s an emotional journey, one that not everyone is strong enough to take – so I’m rooting for a great result for Jake and Sari down the road in life.
