Maverick, an all-new contemporary STANDALONE by New York Times Bestselling author Karina Halle is LIVE!!!
Maverick is a complete standalone novel and the second book about the rough and rugged Nelson brothers. Get ready for one wild alpha mountain man – Canada’s never felt so hot!
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.
STEPHANIE’S 4 BLUSH REVIEW
Karina Halle returns us to North Ridge, British Columbia for the second installment Maverick, in the North Ridge series. Maverick can be read as a standalone.
John ‘Maverick’ Nelson is part of North Ridge’s search and rescue team (SAR) in a small town in the middle of the province of British Columbia. This is the guy we dream about while on vacation. Rugged, physically fit, tattooed and ready for a hook up! He is the quintessential bachelor and with his line of work, he feels there is no reason to change that any time soon. He is also serious about his job and sometimes moody.
Riley Clark is the newest search and rescue employee at North Ridge. She is unique in her own way. She is a female in a male dominated profession. But she is also tall, curvy, slim and blonde with tattoos. Funny and straight forward, Riley loves to goof around. She gives it as good as she gets it!
Maverick and Riley have amazing chemistry. They hit it off right away. Lots of banter back and forth between them. But fraternizing with your coworkers is not permitted. That doesn’t stop the flirting. The heat and the buildup between them – a small spark could ignite it into an inferno.
They are not without issues. Maverick has always been a bit of a commitment phobe. He feels that nothing will be as exciting as chasing the next rescue. And Riley had a traumatizing event at her previous job. She is returning to SAR after a two year break.
The story is not as detailed as Wild Card. It is a quick, hot, down-and-dirty read. The key elements are all there. Hot guy, hot girl, danger, excitement, hot hot sex, more hot hot sex…..There are also some very emotional scenes, especially the prologue. I was on the edge of my seat!
