About the Book

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 Review

Ratings: 3.5 Stars

"Love is chaos."
My first book by new-to-me author, Karina Halle who delivered a thrilling story about love on the slopes...literally.

Maverick was the leader of the search and rescue team, living life on the edge and fueled with adrenaline, he doesn't do relationships until the day Riley barged into his life with her sassy attitude and gorgeous smile. Just like an avalanche, she pulled him under her spell.

If the setting wasn't thrilling enough, Maverick and Riley's romance definitely will set your heart on fire. I loved how they succumbed to their attraction even though both of them tried to maintain their distance at first. Their banter and flirts came out so naturally, I was rooting for them from the start!

I loved the idea of the story, yet I wished that it would be slightly longer as things were pretty rushed at some parts. The SAR incidents were intense, and the plot twist at the end had our hearts broken into bits, but I wished some scenes would be dragged out a little just to give weight to it.

Nevertheless, I'd still be hunting the rest of the series!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. Huge thanks to the author!
