TAMING A MAVERICK the highly anticipated book from the USA Today Best Seller C.M. Owens is now live !
Just some fun. Just one night of reckless, harmless, wild fun.
That's what I told myself the night I hooked up with quite possibly the sexiest guy I've ever known. Only, I didn't want to KNOW him. Life is a series of temporary situations, or so it's always been for me. A future revolves around the next move, but I'm still the type to live in the moment on a seldom occasion, consequences be damned.
Unless that moment happens to be unknowingly landing in bed with my brand new stepbrother. The universe is a mean, twisted jerk. And one consequence is that I have to be around him and get to know him. The worst consequence is the fact that Maverick Sterling, the infamous playboy who can't possibly be tamed, is really hard not to want more of once you've had a taste. So long as I'm not stupid enough to fall in love, it shouldn't be a big deal. Right?
My life has been blissfully simple for a really long time. I have a routine. I have friends. I have family. Yet everyone seems to have less and less time, since they're all sort of trying to be adults or what the hell ever. I blame them for the fact the only girl to ever ditch me without a backward glance is suddenly under my skin. I blame my father for the fact she's a new fixture in my life. Not that I knew that before I got a little overly friendly with my new stepsister. I mean, what are the odds? It shouldn't have been possible.
But it happened. It figures the one girl I can't get out of my head is the one girl who doesn't want to be with me. At least in my head she's the only girl who doesn't want to be with me, because I tend to be arrogant like that. The point is, now she's everywhere I turn, yet she's marking a line in the sand that she thinks I really won't cross.
Obviously she doesn't know me at all.
*Can be read as a stand-alone
I am a huge fan of the Sterling Shores series, and like many others I eagerly anticipated Maverick's story. I couldn't wait to see the arrogant, sexy and cocky Mav, the life of the party and prankster find his match and knock him on his ass. I've got to say although this is the eleventh book in the series, it is probably my favorite and I absoloutly loved it and it can be read as a standalone.
Taming A Maverick is told from a dual point of view, and is a wonderful blend of heart, heat and humor. Mav and Salem's story is sure to give you the feels, it's full of emotion and banter that is fun and flirty. As I've come to expect from C.M. Owens, this book is incredibly engaging and entertaining, with quite a few moments of humor that had me laughing out loud.
Salem and Mav are incredibly endearing and complex characters. Both are much deeper than they appear with vulnerabilities and insecurities that evolve with the story line. I loved that Mav is a perfect blend of brash humor, with a sexy and sweet heart, and Salem is no wilting violet. She's strong, says what she thinks, and doesn't hold back, in particular when she is protecting those she holds dear.
I loved that all the previous heroes and heroines of Sterling Shores appeared within the story line, and I cannot wait to read the next installment of this series, and see the new characters feature in their own stories in the future. The Sterling Shores series, is a must read that I thoroughly recommend to anyone who enjoys a contemporary romance, with heart and humor, and with a strong themes of family and friendship.
