Gideon Jones came back from war a changed man. Though the Maverick Billionaires claim he’s one of their own, he knows he doesn't deserve to be part of their tightly knit unit. Just like he doesn't deserve Rosie Diaz—an amazing mother…and an utterly captivating woman that he can't stop dreaming about.
Rosie Diaz pulled herself out of the foster care system and made a great life for herself while raising Jorge, the son she adores. Only one thing is missing—a good man, one she can respect and love with her whole heart. A man exactly like her best friend’s older brother Gideon.
When Rosie and Gideon agree to take care of Matt and Ari’s son, Noah, while the couple is on their honeymoon, they have no idea of the havoc two matchmaking little boys can create. Not to mention the steamy kisses that Rosie and Gideon can’t help but steal from each other as their connection deepens and grows. But when mother and son are threatened, Gideon will stop at nothing to protect them. Will he finally believe that he truly is Maverick material…and worthy of Rosie and Jorge’s love?

Gideon and Rosie combustable!
The Mavericks are back! A group of self-made men from the wrong side of the tracks. As each one has found love their close knit family has grown. Accepting new members with unconditional love. Gideon Jones joined the military at 18 in the hopes of providing better for his little sister, Ari. He loses track of her in the foster care system due to the unexpected death of his mom. It took many years before Gideon and Ari were reunited thanks to the Mavericks. Gideon has lived in the shadows since leaving the military because he sees himself unworthy of love and happiness. Rosie is a single-mom to 6-yr old, Jorge. She has been navigating life on her own ever since Jorge’s dad left before his birth. Rosie has persevered and managed to complete her accounting degree, find a good job, and home for them both. Rosie has been attracted to Gideon long before she met him due to stories from Ari while they were in foster care together. Gideon has been attracted to Rosie from the moment he met her. While his nephew, Noah, is staying with him Gideon finds that Noah and Jorge want to spend as much time together as possible, much to his distress. Will Gideon and Rosie embrace their attraction to each other? Maybe so with some help from two little matchmakers. Can the Mavericks convince Rosie and Gideon they are both truly Mavericks and are loved unconditionally? When someone from Rosie’s past threatens her and Jorge will Gideon finally stake his claim?
Captivating in Love is a fun read with wonderful main and supporting characters. Gideon and Rosie are both strong characters with strong and undeniable chemistry. Gideon is very alpha, gorgeous, and a heart-of-gold. Rosie shows women that you can be both pretty and smart while being sexy too. I love this series because of its strong family values. I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review, 5stars*****
I was sooooo excited that another Maverick was getting his story! And Gideon and Rosie’s story did not disappoint. Gideon has been welcomed into the Maverick fold, but he’s had difficulty accepting this. After the traumas of his past, he feels unworthy. Worse than this is his tremendous longing for Rosie but his certainty that he could never deserve her. Rosie sees through to Gideon’s soul and loves what she finds there. He is so loving and kind to Little Noah and Jorge, and so protective of his sister Ari. She knows he is full of the past and has deemed himself not good enough for love and friendship, and she longs to prove him wrong. When they are thrown together with Noah and Jorge, will Rosie find the courage to breech Gideon’s walls? And Will Gideon have the courage to open the door to his heart? (SIGH)
Freedom to Love
Wow, love this! Gideon and Rosie are perfect for one another and their story is very touching. Love the Mavericks and how they are so supportive of one another. Rosie portrays a classy way of letting a man know you're interested in him romantically which is exactly what Gideon needs. So happy for this compassionate couple, authors did a great job making this entertaining, attraction that blossoms without aggression. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation from the author.
