Maverick Simon lost his mojo somewhere between the last film he scored and a nasty break-up with one of Hollywood’s elite. Burnt out, a vacation is just what this California boy needs. His brother’s empty house in Maine offers the perfect sanctuary. But plans go awry when he meets a woman who rocks his world in more ways than one. She’s not his usual type—she’s edgy, opinionated, and downright rude. But something about the prickly Charlie Samuels sparks his interest. Maverick must decide if that something is exactly what he needs, or if the smokin’ hot chemistry they share is nothing more than a vacation fling…
Charlie Samuels had always dreamed of leaving her small New England town for something bigger. But that dream disappeared the day her father died, leaving her to raise her younger brother and keep the family business afloat. Now a mechanic, she’s knee deep in grease and oil, and with a pile of bills to pay, has no time for someone like Maverick Simon—a guy who’s just passing through. She can’t deny the tall, brooding, sexy-as-sin, Maverick, causes her pulse to race, but she knows that he’s way out of her league. So why is she contemplating an affair? Especially when she knows that Maverick Simon could cost her more than she’s willing to give, namely, her heart…
Another great read! Love all her books and this did NOT disappoint. Can't wait for Teague.
Maverick is trying to escape the press, as he made not the most wisest choice in dating. Charlie is trying to survive, raising her younger brother and taking over the family business after her father passed, in a small town in Maine.
Maverick, or Rick as he decides to go by is looking for someone to fix his brothers sled so he can pass the time. Charlie is the local mechanic with a bit of a chip on her shoulder and no recognition of who Rick is, which gives Rick a challenge.
Rick's family keeps having small crisis which cause him to leave Maine and Charlie to question his stability, to stay in a small town and if she is enough for him.
I enjoyed their story, the unexpected way her father passed and the glimpse into Teague's story. Rick's mysterious profession and the dynamics of Charlie's personality, has me wondering what is in store for the Simon's.
I received a ARC for an honest and fair review.
