Rough riding Bodey Taggart may be rock hard and tough as nails, but even he has a soft side when the right woman comes along...

Bodey has always followed his own rules: live hard, play hard, and win big. But when his wild ways give him two concussions within a month of each other, his brothers lay down some new rules: no bronco busting, sky diving, or ATVs for the rest of summer. It seems the only pastimes not restricted are shooting competitions...and women.

Beth Tivoli is new to Bodey’s circle of friends, and unlike any woman Bodey has ever met—she isn't about to follow him into bed. She’s not looking to hook up with anyone, especially when she’s trying to escape her past. Bodey quickly realizes that courting Beth is no game, and despite her resolve, they both begin to discover that maybe romance can be different this time around...

Cowboys ROMANCE SUSPENSE western

Maverick is the final book in Lisa Bingham’s Taggart Brothers series I have had such a blast with these brothers. I was delighted to read Bodey Taggart’s story. Full of suspense, and sweet, awkward moments I devoured Maverick in a single sitting.

Coffee Dates with Maverick:

  • First Date: After two concussions, Bodey is lying low for the summer. Which for him means no daredevil tricks like riding broncos, skydiving and ATVS. Instead, he is taking part in a shooting competition, complete with period dress, shops, food stands and prizes. We meet Beth Tivoli, a quiet, guarded young woman who is not at all interested in Bodey. Alright, she is very interested, but she has enough trouble keeping her past from finding her. Right away, I enjoyed the connection between these two and needed to know what has Beth spooked. We get to enjoy some banter, and I loved when Beth surprised Bodey.
  • Second Date: Brigham weaves in a nice touch of suspense with Beth’s secret and it enhanced my enjoyment and kept me flipping the pages. We get to see a slow building romance develop between Bodey and Beth. It is the kind of budding romance with awkward moments and knocks your socks off kisses. I am all in and feeling giddy.
  • Third date: A Dog and Beth’s secret will melt your heart. Bodey’s fall was fantastic, and the telling of it had me in stitches even as I occasionally wiped a tear over tender moments with an absolute cutie. The suspense escalated as we move towards its climactic conclusion. Brigham did an excellent job of balancing the threads and weaving them into a realistic tale. I admired both characters, and their romance felt genuine. A delightful epilogue left me grinning like a lovesick fool.

If you love brothers, sweet romances that deliver a dash of heat, and characters you’ll want to befriend then, Maverick and the entire Taggart Brothers series is a must read.

    You had me at brothers, and then you had to go and add in cowboys as well? How in the world is that fair? *adds to shelf*

    GAH! I might have to try this one. I’ve not been one to gravitate toward cowboy romances, but this one sounds so good. Plus you had to throw in the grinning in the epilogue and that is something I usually enjoy.

    I do love sweet romances and cowboys so this one sounds like my kind of read. Thanks for the lovely review, Kim!

    I’ve never read Lisa Bingham. Since I’ve skirted the cute romances, she just hasn’t been on my radar. But now that I’m full on into romance, I’ll have to add her into my “circle”! I do love daredevil cowboys!!! I liked your review 🙂

    Brodey’s fall was adorable and I ahhed there near the end as his big heart took in all of them including the mutt of a dog.

    Since it’s a series with brothers, you know I’m already interested. 😉 That Maverick has a slow-burn romance with plenty of awkward moments along with sweet ones, piques my interest even more. And there’s suspense too? I’m glad you had such lovely coffee dates with Beth and Bodey, Kim. I’m thinking I’d like to share some coffee with them as well. 😀
