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 have to admit I was a little nervous before I started reading this book, I read a couple of early reviews and some people had mentioned they didn’t find it as good as the previous books in this series so I was worried it wouldn’t live up to my expectations. I’m delighted that this wasn’t the case for me. I loved Taming A Maverick just as much as I have each of the couples books in this series.
Maverick Sterling has always been adamant that he wasn’t the settling down type, he never wanted a commitment and couldn’t be bothered with the drama that having a girlfriend entailed. He was happy living a life of variety especially after seeing the demise of his parents relationship, throw in the fact that he was very like his father in regards to women and he only wanted the one night stands. Maverick is your typical manwh0re, he is c0cky, arrogant, sexy and has one of the biggest ego’s out yet he has this totally charming side that not everyone gets to see and the biggest heart of anyone in this series which I hadn’t expected. Throw in his goofy moments and the fact that he actually has a brain and thats a recipe for a hero you just cant help but fall in love with yourself, I want a Maverick Sterling for myself.
Salem has been burned by someone she thought she loved when she was a teenager and has been a little hardened to the emotion since her mother is a total ice queen, she has been condition from a young age that love isn’t real and pretty girls get screwed not loved. I adored Salem, even after all the things her mother has put her through she still has the capacity to fall in love and also love her younger brother and show him how to be warm and loving. I had so much respect for her character.
Sean is Salem’s younger brother and while he hasn’t had the same experiences at the hands of his mother as Salem has he still hasn’t had things easy and my heart broke for him. He kept me thoroughly entertained throughout this story and his smartass comments and pranks on Maverick were definitely a big part of the story that made it so entertaining.
I have been a big fan of the Sterling Shore series from the first moment I picked up Raya and Kade’s book and the more we get from this amazing group of family and friends the more I want. I know CM Owens is going to deliver another kickass book with Britt ands Base, that was a pairing I never seen coming.
The fact that we get to see the characters that we all love throughout and get to witness some major events in their lives alongside them is one of the many reasons I love this series so much. CM Owens quickly became one of my favourite authors and I don’t think she will be moving from that spot anytime soon.
