Will Franconi has a dark past that he’s kept a closely guarded secret―very few people have ever heard his real story and he plans to keep it that way. After surviving a hellish childhood, he’s now living the dream life where everything he touches turns to gold. But something’s missing. He doesn’t quite know what until a simple letter from a teenage boy brings Harper Newman into his life. A woman who just might fill up the empty places inside him…if only he could ever be worthy of her love.
When a man has more money than he could possibly spend in five lifetimes, Harper has to ask herself what Will Franconi could possibly want from a woman like her? She’s learned the hard way that rich men always get what they want no matter the cost. If it was just herself she had to worry about, Harper would manage, but she’s guardian to her younger brother who depends on her for everything. After nearly losing his life in a car crash, she’s vowed never to let anyone hurt him ever again.
Still, sometimes Harper can’t help but long to change her story from one of an always-cautious woman to an adventurous tale of a heroine who’s wild and free…especially when Will’s kisses and caresses make her utterly breathless. And as he begins to reveal his story to her, she discovers that he’s so much more than just another wealthy, privileged man. He’s kind and giving, and he fills up all the spaces inside of her heart that have been empty for so long. Together, can they rewrite their stories into a happily-ever-after that neither of them had previously thought was possible?
First let me start by saying Bella Andre is one of my favourite romance authors and all her series are sort of connected her characters pop up in each of her series, and that is an aspect i love, but i was hesitant to start this series as i have found with a lot of other authors like Andre that each series gets repetitive but i have found this is not the case with Andre's series.
I didn't know much about this book going in, and i am glad about that, i love going into these sort of books 'blind' it made me fall in love with the story as i was reading it.
The story is much like every other romance, boy meets girl, they fall in love, boy does something they brake up and then get back together. That isn't a spoiler it is literally what happens in 95% of romance books. On the other hand i loved the twist of her caring for her younger brother as a carer for a family member myself i can fully relate to her on that aspect. The main reason i gave it four stars and not five was purely because of the format that is like every other Romance book.
Harper is such a strong female lead and that is something that i have gotten used to while reading Andre's books, but Harper seems stronger than most and she was the best part of this book. Will was also a big plus as well. Will's interactions with Harper's brother really shine in this book and those were some of the scenes that shone the most and made my heart melt.
I cannot wait to read the rest of this series the Maverick Boys had me captivated.
Until Next Time
