Maverick by Karina Halle Blog Tour #bookreview #teasers



Maverick by Karina Halle Release Date: October 17th Genre: Contemporary Romance




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.

My Maverick Review . . . 

Confession time. . .  This is my first Karina Halle book!!! What I know!  Scandalous!  However, it will not be my last.  I have so many of her books on my kindle but never got around to reading, so when this opportunity came, I jumped on it taking the plunge.   I also regret not reading Wild Card first.  I know Maverick can be considered a standalone but I'm a bit OCD so I like to read series in order plus I always feel it gives more to the back story which I missed.  However, I will be backtracking and reading it soon, plus many, many, many more from this talented author.

Riley Clarke is a strong girl working for the SARS team in Colorado but when her best friend and unrequited love is in a terrible accident it causes Riley to start fresh somewhere else.  Now Riley finds herself in the middle of the North Ridge in BC, working for her new handsome boss, John “Maverick” Nelson. 

~ But closure doesn't mean a door closing on pain.  You can have peace and pain at once.  The heart can weather any storm.~

Maverick is the town's ladies man and doesn't do commitment but something about Riley is different.   As Riley and Maverick wade through their attraction and work politics they are also rescuing one person at a time.

However, not all rescues are a success and for some this can effect more than others with their pasts.

"The one thing we can't buy, can't find, can't . . . rescue, is time.  Take it from me.  Time is an unstoppable force, moving us all toward the same end.  Sometimes that end happens for some sooner than it happens for others.  Sometimes others are left behind.  But we, as those who still experience time, we have a duty to those who have gone.  We have to use every second we have.  Life is too fucking short to feel guilty.  We all feel it, and sometimes we deserve it, but acknowledge it and move on.  Don't let it hold you back.  Don't sacrifice the time you have left.  Its' a gift that so many don't have.  Believe me.  It's all going to be over before you know it."

Both Maverick and Riley have a past but its not always easy moving forward.    This book was a great mix of sexy and fluffy.  It had drama without all the normal insecurities you find within this genre.  It had loads of steam but a nice balance with the soft and sweet as well.   Can't wait for more from this author and this series.
