Maverick by Karina Halle


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.

Christy's Review:


Maverick is a lighter and HOTTER side of Karina! In fact, I’d say it’s one of her hottest books to date! I loved that it had just enough emotion to give me the feels that I need in a book, as well.

John ‘Maverick’ Nelson in the middle brother. He’s the leader of North Ridge search and rescue and takes his job very seriously. When he meets Riley Clarke, the newest member of his team, he struggles to not break all the rules. You see, members of this team can’t have relationships with other members. It could make things dangerous, cloud your vision. It’s a rule for a reason. But some rules were meant to be broken…

“You’re a lady’s man, apparently.”
“Not when it comes to the people I work with,” I point out. Riley’s mouth curves into a wicked smile before she covers it with her beer.
“But you’ve never worked with me before.”

Riley lost someone she cared about at her last job, and is looking for a fresh start here at North Ridge. I can’t say enough good things about this heroine! I loved her attitude and demeanor. She was strong, spoke her mind, and was forward in the best way possible. I love reading about women like that! Maverick struggled more than her in a lot of ways, but I understood his struggles. I liked him a lot as well.

Riley and Maverick’s chemistry was off the charts! From the first time they met, you could just feel it! I love when characters have that instant connection. Karina brought the heat with this book! There are moments you’ll be fanning yourself while reading!

I’ve enjoyed both of the books in the North Ridge series so far, and I’m ecstatic to read about Fox! I can just tell it’s going to be great! These books are about brothers and can be read as stand-alones, but you won’t want to miss out on any of the Nelson brothers!

“You’re mine. You’ve been mine from the start.”

Ruthless King Review


     Get ready for the darker and dirtier side of New Orleans with a brand new alpha romance from USA Today bestselling author Meghan March.

New Orleans belongs to me. You don’t know my name, but I control everything you see—and all the things you don’t. My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met. I didn’t need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt. To have her in my debt. She doesn’t know she caught my attention. She should’ve been more careful. I’m going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her. It’s time to collect what I’m owed. Keira Kilgore, you’re now the property of Lachlan Mount. *Ruthless King is book one of the Mount Trilogy*   ADD TO 

Reanell's 5 star review:

O.M.G. Meghan March quickly became a favorite of mine. I devoured her Beneath series and couldn’t wait to get my hands on Ruthless King. When I got the invite to join the review tour I may have screamed and jumped like a crazy person. My expectations were high and they weren’t only met, they were exceeded. 

Panties? Melted right off me. Seriously this book was so damn hot. HOT!!! You want alpha? Look no further than Meghan March. She is the QUEEN of ALPHA MALE! Lachlan Mount is definitely an alpha male. Think alpha male and multiply by 1,000. That’s Mount. And that name? Screams sexy and unattainable. But somebody caught his attention. Only she doesn’t want it....but maybe she’s beginning to realize maybe she does want his attention. 

Just when you think you know where the story is headed you are blown off kilter by something else and you’re left thinking WTF?! Meghan’s writing is unprecedented and I can’t believe I’ve waited so long to read her work. 

This is a trilogy with each new release coming a month apart. You don’t want to miss this EPIC story!! I’ll be screaming for everyone to read it!!

Most of All You by Mia Sheridan Review + Giveaway!

Most of All You by Mia Sheridan 

"Heartbreaking...inspiring, uplifting and raw..."RT Book Reviews, A 5-star Gold Pick

A broken woman . . .

Crystal learned long ago that love brings only pain. Feeling nothing at all is far better than being hurt again. She guards her wounded heart behind a hard exterior and carries within her a deep mistrust of men, who, in her experience, have only ever used and taken.

A man in need of help . . .

Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible darkness of his past, there's an undeniable goodness in him. And even though she knows the cost, Crystal finds herself drawn to Gabriel. His quiet strength is wearing down her defenses and his gentle patience is causing her to question everything she thought she knew.

Only love can mend a shattered heart . . .

Crystal and Gabriel never imagined that the world, which had stolen everything from them, would bring them a deep love like this. Except fate will only take them so far, and now the choice is theirs: Harden their hearts once again or find the courage to shed their painful pasts.

Most of All You is another awe-inspiring story by Mia Sheridan. Mia is a true story-teller and always writes meaningful books that leave my heart happy. This book had the emotion, romance, and unique plot that always comes with a Mia book.

I don’t want to talk at all about Gabriel or Crystal’s story. Their pasts play a huge role in their present and I loved how that was incorporated in the story. Gabriel was such a fantastic hero. I felt for him, adored him, and fell for him. Crystal on the other hand… well, Crystal has led a life many don’t understand. She’s made choices that a lot of us would never make. What I loved about this story is that it really made me think about ‘choices’. Something being a choice is kind of subjective. Depending on your past and situation, sometimes ‘choices’ are anything but. 

Choice is such a loaded word, isn’t it? Choices, though our own, were so weighted down with all the things that had come before, so stained with the messes of our past.
This one took me a while to get into, which isn’t normal for a Mia book. That’s the only reason it’s not a five star read for me. The beginning felt a bit on the slow side and it struggled with keeping my interest. Once the story picked up (maybe around 30-40% for me) I was completely captivated. There wasn't a thing about the last half I would change.


And, maybe, I thought, that was what love was supposed to do—peel your layers back and uncover all your tender spots so they, too, could be healed.
My favorite part of this story was the healing and growth. Nothing makes me happier in a story than to see characters grow and change on their own, and the same characters helping heal each other. Broken souls coming together and healing… there is nothing better. Most of All You is one of those books that will stay with you. These two characters have a beautiful journey that isn’t always easy, but most definitely worth it. An enjoyable, heart-warming read!

“You can’t fix me, you know.”

“No, I can only love you.”
