Forget playing it safe.
John “Maverick” Nelson likes to live his life on the edge – literally. A crucial member of the search and rescue team in the mountainous British Columbian town of North Ridge, Maverick’s brash and bold attitude means he’s the first one to ascend into danger, no matter the risk.
When it comes to women, though, Maverick errs on the side of caution. For all his cocky charm, rugged good looks and sexual swagger, he remains as unreachable as the surrounding peaks. Hot, wild sex? He’ll tell you there’s no better way to spend a cold, wintry night. Relationships? He’d rather freeze.
That is until he lays his eyes on American Riley Clarke. Trading in the crippling expenses of Aspen for BC, Riley is North Ridge’s newest member of their search and rescue team and the only woman on the job, which means spending a lot of time with Mav in adrenaline-pumping situations.
With the chemistry between them hot enough to melt snow, keeping their hands off each other is detriment to the success of their team. Besides, Maverick’s her boss and she didn’t work her ass off in Colorado just to throw it all away for some mind-blowing sex.
But when the worst winter in years sweeps in, Riley and Maverick will have to battle the elements along with their attraction for each other. And if either of them slip up, both of them will be in for a deep freeze.
So I just started this book on Sunday, but thanks to football I haven’t had a chance to finish it yet. It didn’t take long for it to wreck me and I fell in love with it nearly as quickly. I might be calling this one a “must read” prematurely, but I’m going to hope not.
You guys, I’m so freaking excited. I get to see High Valley, Adam Doleac and Ashley McBryde this week! It only seemed right to highlight one of their songs today. It was a tough choice, but I’m going with this one from High Valley because it’s catchy and sweet and they have fantastic beards.
You were made to shine under Southern stars
Pure as the mountain rain
You’re the love songs pouring out of this guitar
Sweeter than sugarcane
It’s just not a Monday Musts during football season if I don’t give you some sort of “punch you in the feels” video, right? This one got a few tears out of me on Saturday.
What are YOUR Monday Musts?
