Don't look down and don't give up.

Justin Oberman's credo for living his adventurous–some might say death-defying–life to the max served him well until the unfortunate outcome of a climb made him walk away from the sport he loved. A lucrative new job offer could pave the way to a more traditional life in Marietta, Montana, where his two best friends have fallen in love with the women of their dreams. But settling down always seemed more daunting than Everest and not worth considering until a mysterious lady in red walks into his life on New Year's Eve. Suddenly, that happily-ever-after stuff Flynn and Tucker have been raving about looks within reach.

The first fall is always the hardest.

Nikki Magnesson Richards has loved Justin Oberman most of her life. First, from the safety of her brothers' old tree house. Later, with unrequited teen-age angst. Her poorly thought out attempt to get him to notice her cost them both dearly. Now, a dozen years later, her fairy godfather boss has orchestrated the most romantic meeting possible–the Big Sky Mavericks Masked Ball for Charity. A kiss at midnight with her very own Prince Charming isn't too much to ask, is it? But what are two star-crossed lovers supposed to do when one kiss isn't enough?

Once again Debra Salonen delivers another great story with Montana Rebel book #9 in the Big Sky Mavericks series by Tule Publishing. This book re-unites 2 characters with a past. Justin Oberman likes adventure especially climbing. Nicole "Nikki" Magnesson Richards loved Justin from afar for just about all her life. As a teenager trying to get Justin's attention Nikki makes a big mistake and has an accident that Justin feels guilty for, with this accident leading to many consequences. As a grownup now, Nikki shares her story with her entrepreneur boss. Then by some coincidence or was it some careful orchestrating by Nikki's boss, he arranges for Nikki to attend the Big Sky Mavericks Masked Ball and lo and behold both Nikki and Justin in masks, are drawn to each other, with Justin being totally intriqued with Nikki not knowing who she is yet!. Nikki realizes the man is Justin. Have I caught your interest yet? I encourage you to read the book to see what happens next, do Nikki and Justin receive their HEA? Read what kind of accident Nikki had as a teenager, about what the consequences were of said accident. The characters in this book were great and interesting all bringing their own personalities into the story. Justin and Nikki are both strong characters with a spark between them leading to romance. I received an ARC from the publisher for an honest review.

Justin Oberman is a professional climber who also happens to fight wildfires. With two risky jobs something is bound to happen. After walking away from leading a climb he wasn't comfortable doing some of the party went ahead with it and were killed in an avalanche. Picking up the pieces he heads for Marietta Montana where his two best friends have made a home and found the loves of their lives. Nikki Richards has been in love with Justin for most of her life but she hasn't seen him since a horrible accident years ago at a climb he was leading. That is until her matchmaker boss decides to hire Justin for a special project at his company. The two meet at a New Years Eve Masquerade ball and the sparks ar flying instantly, but when she reveals her true identity will he run or will he see if there can be a future for them? I truly loved this book. I was intrigued by the characters from the beginning. It is a great feel good story packed with a lot of hurt and emotions. I really wondered through the whole story how's this going to end. You wont be disappointed with this story.

I chose Montana Rebel by Debra Salonen on Netgalley by accident. I'd thought that it was part of a different series. But, I am glad that I did for I found it to be a wonderful find. Montana Rebel is the 9th book in Salonen's Big Sky Mavericks series and while I'm sad that I missed the first 8 books, I can tell you that it was a great stand alone book. Justin is Nikki's childhood crush, and to her dismay he'd barely even knew that she existed. That was until he had led a climb, during which she'd had a crippling accident. Years later the two find themselves at a masquerade ball. What will happen when Justin not only finds out who the mystery woman is, but finds out that she is his new bosses assistant? This is a sweet romance that moves quickly and will leave you wanting to return for another adventure with the Big Sky Mavericks of Marietta, Montana.

"Montana Rebel" by Debra Salonen is book nine the "Big Sky Mavericks" series. This is Nikki Magnesson Richards and Justin Oberman‘s story. Nikki lived next door to Justin when she was growing up. She has loved him for most of her life. An accident happened that changed both of their lives dramatically. Nikki works for J Angus Hooper, 81 year old entrepreneur. J Angus treats her like a daughter or granddaughter. Justin has been working with taking groups rock climbing and training rock climbing, but has walked away for a while and is going to work for J Angus. They have not seen each other since the horrible accident that changed both of their lives. Justin and Nikki meet up at the Big Sky Mavericks Masked Ball for Charity. Justin does not know who she is but feels drawn to her. What will happen when Justin finds out who Nikki really is? Will this destroy their chance at romance and happiness? This a sweet and steamy romance between two people that have suffered through some very difficult times in their life. I really enjoyed all the characters, especially J Angus. I enjoyed the story and would like to go back and read the other books in this series. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and Tule Publishing for an honest review.

What a beautifully written story. It adds a lot to the series and pulls you in closer to Marietta and everyone there. For Nikki, Justin was always the one since she was little, though circumstances tore them apart. Many years later, they meet again and wow! This story is my favorite of the series because of the strength of the characters, strong work ethic and loyalty to "family". I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Salonen had me giggling from the get-go with this one. She expertly melds emotions with heat to create a true romance that you can’t look away from. The picturesque surroundings of Marietta came to life through the intricate descriptions. I enjoyed how the characters have a troubled past together, yet are both moving forward, if in closed off manners at times. The supporting cast was also fantastic. The ties to past novels in the series without depending on them was genius. And the new characters were a blast as well. J. Angus` personality drew me in. He was the type of guy who draws a crowd no matter what. He was also so caring and supportive of those around him, while also demanding the best. Once again Salonen has created a heartfelt romance with a kick. It was a great read alone or as part of the series. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

A great addition to a fantastic series! What a great addition to this brilliant series - I have thoroughly enjoyed reading every single one of them, including this one! This one is a delectable second chance romance, one where her teenage crush seeking his approval make her take dangerous risks and both pay the price for her foolhardiness. Now, years later, her fairy godfather is plotting to reunite the two in the hope of ensuring they give their love a second chance to develop. The author writes emotively, painting robust pictures of the dramatic locations and complex characters in the imagination of her readers. It was great to reconnect with so many of the folks I’ve grown to relate to through reading this series, seeing how life is changing and developing for them as well as meeting new ones in this novel. I don’t, however, think you need to have read any of the earlier books in the series to appreciate this entrancing novel. I have no idea if the author deliberately wrote this story as a modern day version of Cinderella or not, but it certainly has many episodes reminiscent of the fairy tale. To me, Justin Oberman was something of an out of reach Prince that Nikki Magnesson Richards has grown up loving whilst he has been relatively unaware of her and J Angus Hooper is the 81 year old entrepreneur who acts as the fairy godfather for the couple. The relationship between the three is superb and believable. There are plenty of twists encountered as they strive to attain their goals, like being part of the team climbing a mountain together, supporting each other but with a few hairy moments along the way! Everyone could do with a J Angus in their lives! If you enjoy a well written, entertaining and delightful romance, with a well developed plot and great characters, look no further - this is just what you need! I recommend you check out any books by this author as all I have read from her have been great! Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for this, an honest review.

A heartwarming romance not to be missed. Do you ever wonder where you’ld be if you kissed that one person who got away but took a piece of your heart? Nicole Richards is about to find out when she returns to Marietta after her boss decides to hire her school girl crush, Justin Oberman. Their first meeting is at The Big Sky Mavericks’ New Year’s Eve Masked Ball. Justin doesn’t recognize the sexy lady in the red dress and fantastic mask as Nikki, the girl next door, who crashed his climbing party in Yosemite and fell off the side of the mountain breaking her back. Nicole’s family still holds Justin responsible for the accident. Does Nicole’s boss J. Angus Hooper has a plan of his own for hiring Justin for his new project? Nicole confided in J. Angus about her feelings towards Justin. So was Justin the real reason J Angus decided to branch out into a high-end, outward-bound-for-adults-with-impairments sort of operation or did he just want to get Nicole and Justin together? I enjoyed Nicole and Justin’s story a lot. It was sweet and entertaining. The story was written really well and the chemistry between Nicole and Justin was intense. The friendship between Nicole and J Angus was very special. As with the rest of the books in this series, it was hard to put down.

Montana Rebel by Debra Salonen is a good story. Love the setting in the fictional town of Marietta and the characters are well rounded. It's a great opening at a mascaraed ball, very romantic. Love everything about this series, other that this is the last book. It's a stand alone so that's good. I like that about a series.

Wonderful Characters and a Heartwarming Story! Whenever I read a book by Debra Salonen, I know I will get characters and a story that will make me laugh and cry. Montana Rebel is no different. The two main characters have a past that isn't pretty. Nikki and Justin grew up next door to each other, and Nikki watched from afar. When Nikki's college attempt to catch Justin's eye results in an accident that changes both their lives, Nikki's love seems destined to be unrequited. Thanks to her Fairy Godfather Boss, Nikki has a second chance with Justin at Marietta's New Year's Eve Masked Ball. Since the terrible accident in college, Justin has kept moving, pushing himself in climbing but only getting close to his two friends. After spending the past 6 months in Marietta and watching his two best friends find their match, he wonders if it is even possible for him, but he is ready for something else. An unexpected job offer may give him the chance, but he is still waiting for the other shoe to drop. When he meets a masked lady in red, he is instantly intrigued. How will he react when he finds out who Nikki is? The two main characters have both worked hard to get where they are today. They are strong people, but still have their scars. I love how they work through the past to live in the present. The secondary characters are so real and add so much depth to the story, you can't help but love them. The story made me laugh and, at times, made me teary-eyed. Linking the story to others are past characters, which serve to enrich the story. Though part of a series, this book can stand alone, but with such wonderful characters and heart-warming stories, why wouldn't you want to read the others? I just hope Salonen finds a way to continue the series! **I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review (though I would have purchased it anyway!)
