Taming a Maverick (Sterling Shore #11) by C.M. Owens
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
There is no doubt that CM Owens’s Sterling Shore series is one of my absolute favorite out there.
I was fortunate to arrive late on the Sterling train, meaning I just had to wait a bit to get up to date on the last books of the series. Unfortunate, because I kissed a lot of frogs until I got my hands on this baby. I am telling you, this series is GOLD!
Maverick is the guy you want to have as a best friend. He is hilarious and his pranks on Bella made me love him more. He is a serious flirt and if you wonder who got his attention, you need to meet Salem.
Every book can be read as a standalone, but i think you would do an injustice to not starts at the beginning and get to know each and every character.
Salem and her little brother have a mother that change husbands more than often, and she is forced to move into her stepdad’s house. After she had a one night stand with the famous Maverick, she learns that they are stepbrothers. Talk about a buzz kill, but Maverick is more than interested in why Salem can resit his charm and their sexual tension is off the charts.
Imagine a female Maverick and you get Salem.
Read the damn series, I am telling you, you won’t regret it.
