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.

Panty Scorching- 5
Overall Rating- 5
eKindle Review by: Jen

This book blew me away. Honestly I knew I was going to enjoy the read, as I love everything that Karina Halle writes but this book dug itself right into my heart. I finished this book in 2 days and am already trying to find free time to go back and read it again. Maverick gives us the story of John “Maverick” Nelson , who we were introduced to in Shane and Rachel’s story Wild Card and Riley Clarke. Riley makes a move up to North Ridge, as she is looking to over fresh after an incident at work shook her to the core. Thinking that this place is a new beginning and a fresh start Riley is ready to see what challenges arise on her search and rescue job. What she didn’t expect was for her boss to be the “town manwhore” and the undeniably, unattainably handsome Maverick who she just can’t help but be drawn to. Maverick has finally made it as leader of the team and will not let anything stand in his way until the gorgeous Riley shows up to work. Maverick is instantly drawn to Riley – her beauty, charm, smarts, and charisma sends his world spinning. Although they both aware of the fraternization policy at work and try to keep their distance, it seems like fate has other things in mind for Maverick and Riley. Is it worth risking their careers for a potential few nights of a good time? Or will these few fun nights lead them onto a path neither one expected but that neither one can deny?

I loved this story so much!! This story captivated me from the very first chapter and I was finding any snippets of time to sneak in some reading. The sex scenes were HOT—like burning the sheets hot! Holy smokes!!!! The chemistry, not only sexually, between Mav and Riley was undeniable! They totally seem like the perfect fit and complimented each other so well. I loved their story as I did Shane and Rachel’s and I am soooo anxious to read about Fox and Del next!!! Pick up this book-you don’t want to miss out on an fantastic 5 star read!!!
