Publisher's Summary

“Do you remember what you promised?”Maverick: I haven't been back to Rabbit Island, South Carolina, since my parents died and my grandmother, Mimi, rejected me. I'm only returning now to attend her funeral and sell an estate I never wanted. But the moment I step foot on the island and fall into Beau’s arms, I realize it might not be so easy to say goodbye after all.Beau Talmadge was always the boy next door, but now he’s no longer a kid. The man is hot as hell and pushes all my buttons in the very best way. I'm supposed to leave in a week. Sell everything, close the door on my past, and walk away forever. So why am I letting myself fall for someone who lives thousands of miles away? And how the hell am I going to break it off when it's time to go? “That I’d come back.”Beau: It took one short summer to fall in love with Maverick Mitchell and fifteen long years to forget him when he left. I’d never expected to see him again, but when he shows up at Mimi’s funeral looking lost and lonely I can’t resist doing anything I can to comfort him. Falling into bed with Maverick is easy and the nights we spend together are as hot and steamy as a South Carolina thunderstorm.I know it's not smart. I know it's not what he planned. But dammit, Mav belongs in my arms, in my bed, and in my life. So how the hell do I get him to stay? “Took you long enough.” Fair warning: Moving Maverick is a 73k word gay romance novel featuring sweet tea vodka, fancy salt and pepper shakers, guys catching crabs (not that kind), Aunt Tilly with a knife, and multiple detailed instances of man parts touching. Moving Maverick is the fifth book in the best-selling Made Marian series. It can be read on its own but is much more fun read as part of the series. The series begins with Borrowing Blue and each book follows a Marian brother's se

Story was not my cuppa.

Any additional comments?

The sweet HEA ending tried to make up for a lot, but I just couldn’t overcome the anger I felt for most of the first half, or the rage I felt at learning the “reason” why Maverick’s grandmother Mimi refused to take custody of Mav when his parent’s died.

This just did not work for me.

I usually really enjoy Michael Pauley’s narration, but I didn’t this time around. It was mainly two things:

The first is technical – there were numerous audio quality issues when the sound kept fading in and out, which were pretty annoying throughout.

The second is a personal thing – I would have preferred the character voices Pauley uses for Beau and Maverick be switched. It’s a weird personal thing, but I feel like that would have absolutely made it better. But, like I said, that’s a personal issue and has nothing to do with how Pauley performs. He performs well.

But in the end, I didn’t like the story, and it would have taken platinum level narration to get me over that. There was just so much I hated in this.

However, because I don’t like to ruin everybody’s good time just because I didn’t like something, I’m going to put my rant under spoiler tags. Feel free to dismiss it all and enjoy the story for yourself.

There were some good things about the story, they just couldn’t mitigate the rest for me. But as they say, there’s a hat for every head and I seem to be in the minority with my dislike of the story, perhaps you may find it to your liking. Good luck and bless your hearts!

Amazing

I love this book. Compared to the other four wonderful books before this one was different. Lots of laughter and lots of teary eyes in this book that’s for sure. Just like other Marian brother’s the ending was happy and delightful.

A Good Move

This was book 5 in the "Made Marian" series. Maverick Mitchell Marian was adopted by the Marian after his parents were killed in a car accident and his grandmother refuse to take him in. When his grandmother dies he goes back to Rabbit Island, South Carolina to attend her funeral and meets up with his old friend Beau Talmadge who he took care of and lived with her. Maverick relives all the hurt that was caused to him when his grandma didn't let him come live with her turns out she had a good reason she had ALS she was rich and owned a lot of land in which he wanted to sell. Maverick has a really big heart he donated a lot of the money he got from his grandma to the shelter that helped him. I really liked these two but they had a problem one lived on the East coast and one lived on the West coast. The old ladies in this series are so funny and they were at it again in this book. I also liked how the family made Beau feel right at home when he went to visit Maverick in S.F. This book was well written with no errors in grammar or spelling. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

One of the best series out there...

I loved this audiobook because I'm from a small town in South Carolina and could evision Rabbit Island so well. This whole series is brilliant! And Michael Pauley is by far one of the best narrators out there. He brings the characters to life like no one else can. This story had me on pins and needles waiting for what would happen next. It's like Beau and Maverick were truly made for one another...they are so HOT together! Great story especially for summer! Oh and Aunt Tilly, Granny and Irene make this series more than hilarious. They're little spitfires! I will always read Lucy's books!

Moving Maverick

This is a sweet second chance at love between Maverick Marian and Beau. They were best friends as teens and got separated. Brought back together after 15 years to form a bond stronger than just friends. Once again Lucy did an Amazing job with this book. Not as funny as some of the others, and I hate to say it but this is my least favorite of the series so far, only cause there has to be a book that fills that spot. But this is Still a great addition to the series, I love the Marian family.

Audio - Once again Michael Pauley does a great job giving us the perfect narration of these characters and their personality and voices. I really have absolutely nothing bad to say regarding any part of the audiobooks in this series so far. He just does a great job with every book he is given to narrate.

My heart has a happy :)

I loved Moving Maverick the e-book and Michael Pauley just has this amazing way of making everything somehow better. Even when it was already awesome, he just has the power to really bring a story and its characters to life and take the whole thing to a new level. He is so much fun to listen to and despite listening to several books now with him as the narrator, I don't feel like I'm listening to the same characters or bored at hearing the same voice. Each book and each character is fresh and distinctive and new and a joy to hear.

My original Amazon review for the e-book:
I like reading. I like reading a lot. I've been reading for a really long time (several decades). But you know what? Unlike when I first started reading many many moons ago with a tender heart and fresh perspective, I've found that it's a lot fewer and far between that I fall in love, that when a book is finished I can't just simply move on to a new one, that the characters and their story make me feel warm and fuzzy and smiley all over and just stay with me for days and days later. That I look forward to right after reading, also listening to their audiobook so I can hear them come alive. That I also want to own them in paperback so I can hug them close and pet those pretty pretty covers. That in a couple of months or even weeks I want to re-read the story, not because I've forgotten, but because I remember. Moving Maverick is the fifth book in Lucy Lennox's Made Marian series and the fifth time that this has happened to me. I fall in love with all of her characters. I smile big cheesy smiles during all of her books. I laugh out loud and have been exiled from reading in bed at night when the SO is asleep. I've wanted to hug the hurt out of several of her men and in this book I needed a hug too. I want to be best friends with everyone in this family. The world needs the Marians'.

Besides lovable characters, stories infused with interesting little details about work, or locations, quirks, and endearing small casual shows of affection (massaging a foot or rubbing a calf while cuddling on the couch), humor and witty banter, intelligence and thoughtful motivations, I have been greatly impressed and extremely appreciative of the consistency in writing. These books have been coming out fast. I love that because of course I'm impatient to read another great story and fall in love again, but if I have to wait longer for a book in order to guarantee quality than of course I'd rather wait. But these books? they have not suffered one bit for how swiftly they've been produced. They are amazing, each one in it's own way, and that is a true testament to the talent of this author. I don't expect this pace to necessarily last, but what it has done, is reassured me that I won't be falling out of love with Lucy Lennox and her stories. I have a few authors I adore and if I couldn't read anything new by anyone else ever again, I would be just fine with only reading their stories because they have proven their talent and love for what they do. They are not writing to just write. They love and care for the subjects of their stories. I don't have to worry when the next book comes out in a series if it's worth the money. If I'm going to enjoy it. I know because of who wrote it. And Lucy Lennox is one of those few authors who fall into that category. Her books are must reads. Re-reads. Go to reads. Going out of my mind waiting to read. No matter how I personally feel, it will be a good time read.

I don't go into specifics of a story in my reviews because that's what a blurb is for. Because I know other reviewers will have that covered. I'm not looking to closely inspect and dissect the story. What I want you to know is:

Did I fall in love? Yes, my heart has been stolen.

Would I re-read? Absolutely! over and over.

Were there moments- sad, funny, sweet, fantasy fueling- that I replay? You betcha.

Was it worth the money? I've received each book as an arc, and I've bought each book anyway. This book is no exception.
