goodreads 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

My review on Goodreads

I fell in love with North Ridge series after the first book and I couldn’t not continue it. I was excited for each of brothers, but especially the Maverick’s story attracted me the most. And I was not disappointed.

You surely will like our heroine, Riley. She’s just that kind of girl that we all want to be. She is confident and strong. Karina Halle gives us as usual to die for heroes. This time is no different. Maverick tries to keep away from Riley, he is her boss. But with such a woman, simply it’s not possible to stay away long.

They have great chemistry. It is fast, addictive and of course sexy as hell. A bit forbidden, which makes it even more exciting for me. They have to make decisions and must find themselves, but the path through which they lead us in the story will bring you a lot of joy from reading.

As usual, I recommend Karina Halle books. And can not wait for another story.
