Maverick by Karina Halle 

Release Date: October 17th 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

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.

**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**

I love the rough and rugged Nelson brothers! Maverick was such a great contemporary romance. It grabbed my interest immediately and I enjoyed Mav and Riley's story a lot. Riley was such a fun and straight-forward character, and I really loved her go-getter attitude. She knew what she wanted and went for it, which was very refreshing. The interaction between Riley and Mav was very entertaining and the sexual tension was hot. This book was more on the light-hearted side, but it also had a few emotional scenes which fit the story well. The sex scenes were so good, and as someone who sometimes skips them because of it being repetitive, I really enjoyed them in this book.

"You have me," he says. "All of me." He pauses. "Do I have all of you?"

Karina does such a great job in creating interesting characters. It was also great to see what Shane, Rachel and the rest of the gang were up to. What I also enjoyed was the occupation of Mav and Riley. It isn't easy to be a member of a search and rescue team and I have so much respect for them. I was glad that there were a couple of search and rescue missions in the book, which added another layer to the story. Normally I am not a big fan of 'forbidden' romances, but it was done really well in this book. If you are looking for a fun and steamy contemporary romance, then Maverick is definitely a book you should get your hands on!
