Maverick (North Ridge #2) 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 9 reviews.

I've been itching for Maverick as soon as I finished Wild Card. I loved this one even MORE if possible. Riley was such a BADAS** heroine. She was SO amazing and inspired me to become strong and to not give a crap. Mav was a sexy beast!! I was almost jealous of Riley, but I wasn't since she was just TOO cool. I so can't wait for Fox and Delilah's story next in Hot Shot!!! I have a feeling it's going to be even BETTER than the previous two!!!

This is probably my only 3 star review for KH....I've read most of her books and they are always 4-5 stars! The main reason for the 3 star is because of the heroine, Riley. She drove me crazy with the aggressive pushing yet she kept flip flopping regarding Maverick. It wasn't until the end that I felt like I knew where she was coming from. Even though the sex scenes were plentiful and hot, there was just a lack of connection. This book was definitely lighter than the other 2 books in the series, which is fine but it needed more likable characters. Maverick didn't pull me in like Wild Card or Hot Shot. It is definitely worth the read and the final book The Hot Shot pulls everything together!

Been looking forward to reading this book since the last one in this series ended, I just fell for these brothers living in this little town and trying to get back or find true love. We start with a prologue two years before the events of the book and it starts with Riley, we see her doing what she knows best and loosing something very important to her and after that destiny brings her to North Ridge where she is assigned to Maverick’s team, the only female and a new temptation for Maverick. There is a no getting together with someone on your team and that makes their interactions so interesting, she pushes his buttons, they flirt, they banter and all the while knowing they can’t do anything about it. I also loved the setting of the book, Karina is so so good at writing these amazing characters in beautiful settings and through her words she manages to bring those places to the forefront and give them all the attention they deserve.

LOVED this book! Mav and Riley had off the charts HOT chemistry together! These characters are fantastic! Riley is a strong woman who doesn't shy away when she wants someone - life is short and she learned that lesson the hard way. Maverick can't resist Riley, even though he's her boss and he's not allowed to fraternize with his employee. Seriously, the two of them together made for some very sexy scenes! I loved everything about this book and can't wait for Fox's book!!!

I fell in love with North Ridge series after the first book and I couldn’t not continue it. I was excited for each of brothers, but especially the Maverick’s story attracted me the most. And I was not disappointed. You surely will like our heroine, Riley. She’s just that kind of girl that we all want to be. She is confident and strong. Karina Halle gives us as usual to die for heroes. This time is no different. Maverick tries to keep away from Riley, he is her boss. But with such a woman, simply it’s not possible to stay away long. They have great chemistry. It is fast, addictive and of course sexy as hell. A bit forbidden, which makes it even more exciting for me. They have to make decisions and must find themselves, but the path through which they lead us in the story will bring you a lot of joy from reading. As usual, I recommend Karina Halle books. And can not wait for another story.

"You have me," he says. "All of me." He pauses. "Do I have all of you?" I love the rough and rugged Nelson brothers! Maverick was such a great contemporary romance. It grabbed my interest immediately and I enjoyed Mav and Riley's story a lot. Riley was such a fun and straight-forward character, and I really loved her go-getter attitude. She knew what she wanted and went for it, which was very refreshing. The interaction between Riley and Mav was very entertaining and the sexual tension was hot. This book was more on the light-hearted side, but it also had a few emotional scenes which fit the story well. The sex scenes were so good, and as someone who sometimes skips them because of it being repetitive, I really enjoyed them in this book. Karina does such a great job in creating interesting characters. It was also great to see what Shane, Rachel and the rest of the gang were up to. What I also enjoyed was the occupation of Mav and Riley. It isn't easy to be a member of a search and rescue team and I have so much respect for them. I was glad that there were a couple of search and rescue missions in the book, which added another layer to the story. Normally I am not a big fan of 'forbidden' romances, but it was done really well in this book. If you are looking for a fun and steamy contemporary romance, then Maverick is definitely a book you should get your hands on!

Karina Halle has such a wide range of books in her resume, one that is filled with many different sub-genres that she conquers flawlessly in romance today. Maverick is another to add to the list of steamy stories that has an edge to keep you begging for more.One of my favorite parts about this story is that these two are equals, something that seems rare in romance books today. Riley and Maverick are cut from the same cloth. So often it is opposites attract, but in this story, we have two adventurous people who risk their lives and have an aura of confidence that oozes sexuality and strength. Riley and Mav redefine what a romance couple could look like, giving the reader a couple that keep us on our toes. The constant push and pull creates a banter and rising pressure that is sure to explode in the best way.  Not only do these two unique characters take center stage in a well written story, their backdrop is phenomenal. The mountains of Canada might look beautiful, but there is so much more hiding beneath nature’s beauty. There is adventure and danger lurking. So much about this story takes danger and risk to a new level, creating a podium for bravery to stand on. Maverick has a high level of tension that shows at any moment, everything might shatter. The lust brewing between Mav and Riley starts the tension off in a delicious way. That tension coupled with the pressure of their working relationship and the rules they break keeps the reader anxiously wanting more. The constant struggle between life and death in this book keeps your heart racing till the very end. Needless to say, you might need a moment of peace to compose yourself when you finish this book!
