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

    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!

    "Doesn't feel the same"

    Not sure if it is me but this did not have the feel as the other Made Marion stories, The reader has always done a good job. Don't see how he can keep all of the voices straight. As like all of Marion stories, I like they can be read independently.

    "B+ rating..."

    My Review:
    Overall: 4.25
    Performance: 4.5
    Story: 3.75

    Hmm, this story...much like book #4 in the series, it seemed a bit inconsistent. First of all, what happened to Maverick was awful, and I totally can't blame him for being bitter about his grandmother's legacy. To be rejected like that by his grandmother after losing both his parents was horrific. My heart hurt for him...and it just seemed like there should be a bit more to all that...some sort of closure for his broken heart that didn't quite seem to play out.

    Overall, I liked the story between Beau and Maverick (although I hated what Beau did early in the story to keep Maverick around). I liked their history, I was sad about their separation, and the salt & pepper shaker thing was kind of cute. It seemed like at the beginning of the story there were lots of jokes that just kind of fell flat.

    This book takes place in the low country of S. Carolina and also had a lot of very southern little bits in there that seemed a bit over the top...like they were making fun of Maverick. But I did like the relationship between the guys. I liked Beau's business and how he leaves bunny (?) carvings everywhere. I even liked the appearance of the puppy at the end although that seemed a bit random.

    The book has the same Marian characters, although because most of the book takes place in a different part of the country, they weren't quite as prevalent in this story. Something happened with Dante (Maverick's youngest brother) at the end of the story, so I'm thinking his story is next. Something is most definitely going on with him. I'm intrigued...

    Story
    "Soul Mates"
    If you could sum up Moving Maverick in three words, what would they be?

    Love survives time


    What did you like best about this story?

    The shared history and love that started in childhood and lasted until they found each other again. It will make you believe in soul mates again.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Pauley – was your favorite?

    Beau and Aunt Tilley and Maverick - I can't pick just one.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    After each Made Marian audio book, I think that the one I just read was my favorite. But I have loved every one and look forward to the last one, Delivering Dante.

    "Great story in sequence of Marian novels."

    Good book. Excellent narration. But it would be better if they had two actors to portray each of the main characters.

    Gives a very descriptive rendition of yhe Old South.

    I love Pauley's characterizations of the Marians. I dig the entire series! Lucy has a terrific way with story telling. I LOVE the Marian clan and can't get enough. Moving Maverick does NOT disappoint.
