Very good book. Brooks has been trying to get his father to slow down. Both are veterinarians but Brooks's dad won't make him part of his practice until Brooks has settled down and gotten married. He is adamant on the subject and Brooks is just as determined to stay single. He first tries setting up his own practice to take some of the workload off his dad. He needs an assistant to help run the new office and settles on Jazzy. After just a week he realizes she is perfect for the job. There is al ...more

Karen Rose Smith proves once again that she is an excellent writer. Her signature style shines in Marrying Dr. Maverick, and by the end of this story you feel as if you've developed an intimate relationship with the books rich cast of characters.
Excitement builds as the first chapter closes, and it’s clear that you’re in for a great ride.
Jazzy and Brooks (The novel’s main characters) are an exciting couple to get to know. Once you start diving into the books reality, you’ll soon find yourself w

The question is: Hitched for love—or business?

Dr. Brooks Smith, our favorite hunky veterinarian, the most confirmed bachelor in all of Montana, is starting a practice in Rust Creek Falls. His father is also a vet and has a practice there as well. Brooks wants desperately to go into partnership with his father. His pa's health is failing and he eagerly wants to take the load off him. His father refuses with the same old ultimatum. Brooks cannot join his practice until he is married and settled an

Perfect meeting between of Dr. Brooks Smith "vet" and Jasmine "Jazzy" Cates. ... from that point on, I definitely couldn't put the book down.
The book was fun, lighthearted, packs of great kinds of emotion. ... & where honesty leads to ..... Enjoyed the thread throughout the storyline for the love and care of animals.
Barrett, Brooks's Dad was a great character to meet and ... loved his personality and additional mix with townfolk, Brooks's and Jazzy's daily lives.

Hey, go ahead read too and fi

I'm sort of over the storyline of getting married in a business arrangement of sorts. I was into this book until it popped up that he asked her to marry him to make his dad happy. and of course she agreed bc no marriage needs at least one sensible person. the only thing that made this storyline different from the other ones who've also overplayed this storyline is that people actually pointed out how fast and unusual it is for both of them to be moving that quickly. that never happens in these b ...more

Another amazing book by Karen Rose Smith. She has a way of making you feel part of the book. She perfectly captures the character of Jazzy and Brooks, and their story plays our perfect. A Must read.

This was a fast, quick, short read. I love stories about cowboys and ranchers. It was a cute story. I didn't know that it was one in a series though.

First off I want to say thank you to Karen Rose Smith for sending me an advanced copy of Marrying Dr. Maverick.
A must read book by one of my all-time favorite authors. This book will have you falling in love with the whole cast of characters.
Marrying Dr. Maverick is a sweet romance that I found to be exceptionally well written from the plot, to the development of the characters you will find yourself rooting for "true love" between Dr. Maverick and Jazzy.
Five stars for his one. You will not b

Veterinarian, Dr Brooks Smith meets assistant Jazzy Cates. Will this be a marriage of business proposition or will they let their true feelings come out. This book kept me going from the first page to the last in their romance. It is my first read in the Montana Mavericks but now want to go back and read the first books in the series.
I get that the "marriage of convenience" is a staple of romance books, but I really dislike it. Maybe I've read so many that it needs to wow me. This didn't. It was unconvincing and Brooks was kind of a pain. Jasmine (I hate the nickname Jazzy) is 30--why is she so under the thumb of her family?

I won this book in a goodreads giveaway, and the author wrote me a cute little note on the inside. :) I loved this book, it was something that actually kept me interested the entire time. I thought the love story was great and kept me guessing what was going to happen in the end.
