5 Icy CROWNS
This Nelson brother has completely won over my heart, and the brothers, it is sad to say, have moved the McGregor clan out of my top spot.
Maverick, so far, is my favorite Nelson brother. I love his charm, his laid-back nature, and his protective instinct. His job at SAR only serves to highlight his best features. His sense of honor and loyalty, coupled with his need to be a good leader for his team makes him so swoonworthy. Add to that his dirty mouth and impeccable skills in the bedroom, and I am sold. Maverick has earned his title of favorite Karina Halle hero. I adore him.
Riley is another heroine I didn’t really expect. The opening scene led me to believe that we should get a more broken character, but Karina Halle makes her bold. Her confidence, her sex appeal, her mouth, and zeal for life are contagious, and I completely enjoyed reading about her.
The chemistry between these two from the very beginning is off the charts, and out of all of her books, their connection, emotionally and physically, is searing. Every scene is HOOOTTT, so freaking hot. It is probably one of the steamiest books I have read from her, and this is in large part due to the sexual freedom of both Riley and Maverick.
Not only does Karina Halle deliver a super steamy romance with characters to love, but she also delivers a romance that has elements of danger with the occupations of both of the main characters. The inherent dangers of the job bring a level of fear for the couple as well as puts the reader in heightened state of suspense because we know the dangers of the job will come into play. When it does, the heightened emotions of Riley and Maverick are intense, and the author does a great job making the readers feel the grief and heartbreak of each character. There might be some who don’t like how the secondary conflict is resolved, but I liked how it exemplified the solidarity of the team, especially after what they all endured together.
Maverick brings it all to the table: super steamy sex, romance, lovable characters, and story filled with anticipation. I didn’t want the story to end. I just love them and their story that much. It is definitely another one-click book for this author.
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.
