Maverick has taken care of his four brothers, protecting them in ways he sheltered them from. When new tenant Teagan and her young daughter move in above his club, Maverick is intrigued but he doesn’t feel like he can ever give himself to a woman, at least the way they would need. Teagan though sees something in Maverick and when they share a moment together that sh believes will lead to more, Maverick turns his back on her. However, Maverick can’t stay away, he cares for Teagan and has to work through is past to make a future. What is already a hard path becomes even worse when someone from his past reappears intent on destroying everything.
This had a twist that I didn’t see coming. I was the most anxious to read Maverick’s story and it was fantastic. Maverick has always been the more quiet of the Carter brothers and you fully understand why once you read this book. Teagan I loved, her story unfolds and her daughter is adorable. Another great book by Lisa Helen Gray.
