Forget playing it safe.
John “Maverick” Nelson likes to live his life on the edge – literally. A crucial member of the search and rescue team in the mountainous British Columbian town of North Ridge, Maverick’s brash and bold attitude means he’s the first one to ascend into danger, no matter the risk.
When it comes to women, though, Maverick errs on the side of caution. For all his cocky charm, rugged good looks and sexual swagger, he remains as unreachable as the surrounding peaks. Hot, wild sex? He’ll tell you there’s no better way to spend a cold, wintry night. Relationships? He’d rather freeze.
That is until he lays his eyes on American Riley Clarke. Trading in the crippling expenses of Aspen for BC, Riley is North Ridge’s newest member of their search and rescue team and the only woman on the job, which means spending a lot of time with Mav in adrenaline-pumping situations.
With the chemistry between them hot enough to melt snow, keeping their hands off each other is detriment to the success of their team. Besides, Maverick’s her boss and she didn’t work her ass off in Colorado just to throw it all away for some mind-blowing sex.
But when the worst winter in years sweeps in, Riley and Maverick will have to battle the elements along with their attraction for each other. And if either of them slip up, both of them will be in for a deep freeze.
Maverick is a standalone novel and the second in the trilogy about the rough and rugged Nelson brothers. Canada’s never felt so hot.
This book was exactly what I needed right now. I feel like it had it all. It was fun and sexy, made me laugh, had my adrenaline going, and was just so enjoyable. I loved Riley. She is definitely going on my favorite heroines list. She was so blunt and real. I loved that she wasn’t afraid to go after what she wanted. You don’t see a lot of heroines like this, just straightforward and confident from the start. She was a breath of fresh air. And the chemistry! Holy hell! The chemistry was off the charts. I felt that connection between her and Maverick right off the bat. And that’s rare for me. But it was just oozing off the pages. Smoking. Hot. 5 stars!
Warm you right up
Maverick crackled with chemistry and adrenaline. She built two strong characters that work well not only with each other, but the other characters as well. Oh and those scenes, HOT.
I finished this book in one day.
Loved her leading men!
