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.”
