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.

When the wilderness of people’s feelings catching up with wilderness and beauty of the scenery place, you got John “Maverick” and Riley’s story.
An intense and passionate story, where feelings were running deep, the feel of adrenaline and emotional moments that would transport you and drive you crazy. When it came to these two, the tension emanating was just smoking hot.
As a new member of John’s rescue team, Riley was trouble with a capital A. Off limits and definitely more than she seemed to be. Obviously you must have guessed that our hero was kinda… a lady’s man. Living a small town could give quite a reputation but once again appearances were deceiving.
Well that guy wasn’t hiding about this but when he met Riley, all bets were off.
More than a physical connection, as team partners they had to face and go through dangerous rescues, saving people’s lives was definitely a way to get closer. I appreciated how bold and honest they were, how responsive they were towards each other. They saw in each other their scars, deepest fears and hopes. They gave everything they had, through the good and the bad times, never holding back.
I went from rough to hot, tender and sweet sometimes, definitely right up my alley!
The story being settled in such resplendent, wild landscapes will take your breath away. There was something about North Ridge that made you feel like home, when family and friendship mattered.
Super hot, emotional, intense and wild… I truly adore this series and this family.
Maverick… le freaking sigh!
