1.0 out of 5 starsHate Cliffhangers!
Reviewed in the United States on January 11, 2019
The story wasn't bad, but I hate being forced to buy a book to finish one, and here it's divided in three! I refuse to do it, so left hanging. AT THE LEAST, make it be known that it's a cliffhanger, then it's my choice or not.
He: Will, a former gang member reformed by the love of adoptive parents and his fellow Mavericks is convinced he'll never be good enough for...
She: Harper, a young woman left with sole custody and complete care of her brain-damaged, but high functioning younger brother after the untimely death of her parents. In her mind her responsibilities preclude personal happiness. Until...
Sparks fly between Will and Harper as they are brought together by brother Jeremy's love of cars.
I really wearied of Will's on going self-flagellation and Harper's endless hand-wringing. There was entirely too much repetition of his beauty and self doubt, her goodness and martyred obligation and Jeremy's 'boundless exuberance.' It felt like the author didn't know how to move the story along so she just repeated these things over and over. The climatic event was highly predictable as was the aftermath and resolution. I was simply relived when I turned the last page to know that I was finished and I could move on. I don't like writing negative reviews, but I just can't recommend this book.

The beginning of this book drove me crazy. Author repeated the same stuff over and over. I skipped thru a lot of pages especially the sex stuff. It seemed the simplest conversation had sexual overtones. The sec was too graphic and too often. As a reader, I became sensitized to all the sexual stuff
I felt bad that Will has always thought so bad about himself even though he turned his life around with the help of Susan and Bob. He had a horrible father that was not worthy of being his father. I just love Bob and Susan who took in the Mavericks as they call themselves. I admire Harper for doing everything for her brother Jeremy who was in an accident at age seven. Even though Jeremy is a grown teenager, he still thinks a lot like a seven year old. He is the sweetest, most loving and forgiving human being. I could see how Will fell in love with Harper and Will. Their love story has some struggles that I was glad to see them overcome. I loved the story and strongly encourage you to read the book.
I loved every single moment of this story. It was so emotionally charged, but in a good way. This is a story of what happens to ordinary people when family tragedies change the dynamics, the mental and physical healths of the caregivers and the struggle to financially bring wellbeing to those involved. And that is what happened here after Jeremy is stuck down at 8 yrs old by a car, leaving him mentally disabled. But it was more than Jeremy that was affected by the driver's actions that day, because after her parents died, at 22 yrs old Harper is left as his sole caretaker. That's a lot to ask of anyone that young, and sometimes when you try to do everything right, it may not be what's best.
And then there's Will. His past is riddled with trouble. But with the help of friends and his foster parents, he finally found a way to change his life around, for the better. And even though he's a well respected, kind billionaire, now, he's always looking over his shoulder wondering if his troubled past will stand in the way of finding the HEA he's always craved.
Can these three find a way to heal one another, while finding a happy future together?
3.0 out of 5 starsIt's good,but has room for improvement

When two authors co-write a book, the flow either falls flat, becomes choppy, or in some rare cases.... flows flawlessly. In this case.... it fell a little flat with all the internal thought, felt choppy for the timeline, and introduced the second book in the epilogue that did not make sense to me.
I did appreciate the heartfelt sentiment to showing respect to every person, regardless of their personal limitations. I felt for the characters, but their feelings in the book were a little excessive. In which the feel of the book lacked substance, but was filled with fluff in the way of too much inner turmoil.
Don't get me wrong.... it was a good book, but it could have been better (and probably 100 pages shorter)....3-1/2 stars
5.0 out of 5 starsHe will never be older than seven in his mind...

This book is so much more than a novel. It is a story of what happens to ordinary people when family tragedies change the dynamics, the mental and physical healths of the caregivers and the struggle to financially bring wellbeing to those involved. So many stories are about the physical and emotional levels of people but you put a child into the book and you have a winner. This is an amazing storyline involving a teenager with mental and physical disabilities caused by an accident. There are portions of this story that made me cry; there are portions that I sat here with a smile on my face and read on and on; and, there are things that happen that made me laugh out loud. I highly recommend reading about Will, Jeremy and Harper. It's fun, exciting and wonderful. There are several sensual scenes and they are well written. Excellent job!
This story has it all heartache loss upset anger romance disappointment and frustration. How the two main characters bounce off each other is brilliant . Harper has sole responsibility of her younger brother who happened to be handicapped by a car accident when he was 7 years old .life changed not only for Jeremy but herself she had her parents to help until they both died in a plane crash. Harper made a life for them both mostly working from home Jeremy went to school then in the afternoon he worked at a local grocery store. Harper and Jeremy met Will a self made billionaire through Jeremy love of cars and racing. At first meeting Will their lives changed romantic thoughts were in the air . Happy times lay ahead until Jeremy changed jobs and while Will took Harper on her first trip to Europe disaster struck. Will got a call that Jeremy was missing the guilt hit them both Harper could hardly focus it hit her hard they were back on the jet . Their relationship faltered. All Harper could feel was she'd let Jeremy down and Will blamed himself for a different reasons it was his idea they left him in care of his house keeper and his other staff and driver. At last the call they both needed Jeremy had been found ok. Harper in her mind was to blame all she concentrated on was getting back and never letting her self needs come between her taking care of her brother he came first. After talking to Jeremy overtime she thought of the kind caring man Will was and how she could make everything right between them .true feelings came out and she told Will everything romance was recharged . Happy ever after . This book kept me reading non stop can't wait to read the next Maverick story in book 2
I loved this book from beginning to end. Couldn’t put it down. For me just the right mix of story & sex. Will, a billionaire( of course) receives a letter from Jeremy who is interested in his collection of cars. He decides to do his good deed & invites him over to look them over at his garage. But when he meets him he realises that Jeremy is not the child he thinks he is but a brain damaged young man who has a most delicious sister, Harper. You have the story of how Jeremy became brain damaged, how Harper came to be the sole carer for him & the impact that has had on her life. But running along side that you have the story of Will as a young child , led astray by his father into gang life until his foster parents teach him there is another way to live. Can Will trust Harper enough to tell her about his life in the gangs? And can Harper trust Jeremy to start living a bit more without the protective constraints she places around him? All tied up with the attraction that they both have for each other & some steamy sex scenes which is probably why I stayed up to read it in one sitting.
5.0 out of 5 starsShe had to protect her brother but who would protect her heart

Harper’s life was all about Jeremy her brother who after an accident when he was seven he never aged from then until now, Will billionaire hoped some day to meet his love but he didn’t feel that he would deserve her, as a young man he was a bad boy and who could love him if they heard his story. A simple letter from who he thought was a small boy hit his desk and not wanting to disappoint he invited him to see his car collection. He saw Harper and his heart skipped a beat she was the big sister of this overly excitable young man who was enthralled at the cars in wills garage. Harper was guarded after all he was a billionaire just showing off his cars to an enthusiastic Jeremy little did she realise it was her he wanted enthusiastic and little did she know she would want to release her wild side. A lovely story of two people who got list along the way and found each other the openness of revealing themselves to each other and Harper learned that not every man wanted Jeremy out of the way but Will was different, yes money changed him but it changed him to a better man with compassion and an everlasting love even she didn’t think would happen. I loved this story and recommend it to everyone
I was really looking forward to reading this book and I am glad I was not disappointed. Harper is guardian to her brother Jeremy, who was hurt when he was knocked down and even though he is a teenager, he has the mental age of seven. Jeremy has a fascination with fast cars and writes to billionaire Will Franconi, asking him if can he see his car collection. Will can tell how much Jeremy loves cars and agrees to show Jeremy them. They meet at an airport hanger where Will keeps some of his collection. Harper and Jeremy arrive first and Harper is expecting Will too send an employee to show her brother the cars, so she is shocked when Will himself turns up.
Will was expecting a younger child to be waiting. Will soon realises when he sees Jeremy that he is not your normal teenager and realises that something must have happened to Jeremy. Will is also instantly attracted to Harper. Harper instantly likes Will as he treats Jeremey like the young man he is and shows him is cars.
Will and Harpers relationship really blooms and its great watching them both having to deal with their own insecurities. Jeremey is a really good person and its lovely story about all three of the bonding. Meeting Will's friends is great and I can not wait to learn more about them. Highly recommend this book.
