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.
I couldn’t wait to read Maverick’s story. He was supposed to be this sexy mountain man that the lady’s couldn’t resist. Well there is no doubt that Karina Halle kicked it up a notch in this book. I wanted to read a book not do exercise. I mean if you consider vagina clenching exercise, then yeah! Because I was doing this a lot!!!! Lol…. HOLY FUCKING HOTTNESS!!!
From the very beginning I was pulled into the story. We start off on Riley and how she ends up in North Ridge and man, what an opening to a story. I was totally devouring the pages. I instantly loved Riley’s character. She was so bold and confident sexually yet still vulnerable from the tragic events she’s endured. She was the perfect match for Maverick. And Maverick….oh Mav! Be still my clenching thighs. Mav was everything you just want to devour in a man. Sexy, tattoos, demanding and take charge and he still had that soft side that easily came out with Riley. The flirtation and sexual banter between these two was fun and entertaining. The chemistry was off the charts.
Karina Halle did an amazing job on the delivery of this story. These risk takers had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I was absolutely consumed by this book. I completely fell in love with these characters and these stories. Fox and Del’s story is next and I can’t wait to see what Ms. Halle has in store for their journey. Loving this series and highly recommend it.
