Just some fun. Just one night of reckless, harmless, wild fun.

That's what I told myself the night I hooked up with quite possibly the sexiest guy I've ever known. Only, I didn't want to KNOW him. Life is a series of temporary situations, or so it's always been for me. A future revolves around the next move, but I'm still the type to live in the moment on a seldom oc

I love Sterling shore series. Its one of the best series, I ever read. It's always full of fun, craziness, hotness or tears, it would be from breaking your heart or laughing so much. And Taming A Maverick is no different. I love Maverick. He is another hero, in this series, who steals my heart. I'm warning you now, if you had read previous books, you already have a crush on Maverick, but when you meet him in his own book.... It's just impossible not to fall for him. He's perfection.

Ashi- A hopeless romantic girl :D

This books is a rom-com❤

And C.M owens can write a rom-com like no other.

Those Twitter conversations alone made me laugh so hard 😂

I loved Maverick and Salem.

They had an amazing chemistry.
I loved how this book's villian also got a hea as she was a victim herself.

I loved Sean.

On last note if you need a good rom-com this is the book for you buddy!

Maverick Sterling finally meets his match!

Maverick is the last one standing. The lone single guy in the midst of couples he loves and secretly envies. That is, until, Salem struts out onto the dance floor of Silk, looking to seduce the sexy stranger into a one night stand. It may have only been a good time if they weren't thrown together again as a result of his father marrying her mother. Step-siblings! Too taboo for this Sterling? No chance.

I have a reason for my 4 -not 5- Star rating and it'

*Provided an ARC in exchange for an honest opinion.

We finally have it. Maverick's story and it was definitely worth the long wait.

It comes at no surprise by now, if you follow my reviews, that I am obsessed with C.M. Owens and this series. Seems just yesterday I one-clicked my first eBook, which happened to be Hooked on the Game, first book of this series (which is free by the way). Since then, I have read and loved every book of this series.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

There are very few authors who draw me into their fictional worlds and have me wanting to stay indefinitely. C. M. Owens is high on that list and always leaves me begging for more. Out of all of the Sterlings, Maverick is the one that I couldn't wait to see find love. He is just so special in every way and I was worried that C. M. Owens wouldn't be able to find a heroine that would match his fire and humor. After meeting Salem and watching the fi

Confessions of a Romance Junkie review by: Candice Marie

The Sterling Shore series is one of my absolute favorite romantic comedy series hands down! I've been intrigued by Maverick since Rain and Dane's book, and had been highly anticipating his story for almost two years! I was fascinated by how seemingly carefree and fun he was but also by how fiercely loyal and protective he is over those he cares about. And as each new book in the series was released I fell more in love with the glimpses of

Another Sterling Shore Hero to steal my heart!!
We have met the adorable, confident, cocky, man whorish Maverick in other Sterling Shore books and this time its Mav and Salem to get their story. I was so excited to start this book and i was most definitely not disappointed !!!

I think this may have been my fave SS book!

This book gave me so many feels. I absolutely fell in love with Maverick...and Salem. I always liked Maverick, but Ethan and Rye were my two favorites. I have to say, Maverick totally won me over. I think it was his smartassery...along with Salem's. I really loved that couple and I might even go as far as saying that they're my favorite SS couple. Never would've thought that since I've always been team Ethan/Bella & Rye/Brin.

I was anxiously awaiting Maverick's story. His character was so dynamic in the books so I was happy to see his story. I was happy with his go get him attitude because it reminded me of me. I need my space. Need to wallow and think of a situation but not for more than a day or two and they go for it. Loved how he confronted his dad and stepmom during the breakup.
Sorry that I caught up with the books now. I would love to see an overall catch up book because there are some loose ends, for instance

Love love loved it!!!

I absolutely love this series! Typically when reading a series with many books, the series can become redundant ; not with the SS series! Whew! They are so funny, sexy and whitty. The banter between characters is hilarious and the character development is unlike any other I've read. The characters from past are still relevant and we are given a glimpse into their lives past their own epilogue.
I can't say enough great things about this series and the author. I love all her

I have been waiting for Maverick since I found out he was going to have his own book!!
Maverick is the whole package:
Funny and Intelligent.
Any woman who could tame Mav has to be special in their own right. I looooved Salem. She's now my second favorite Sterling woman. Loving, caring, but takes no shit...I think being brought up mostly by her older brothers (who love and adore her) gave her the tough skin she needed to deal with her bitch ass mother (although it was g

The Sterling Shore series continues to be one of my favorites, and I really enjoyed Maverick's story! I was somewhat disappointed when I found out this was going to be a stepbrother romance since I'm not particularly keen on them, but this one actually worked for me. I loved Maverick's and Salem's honesty with each other the most. I'm so glad that Maverick was not matched with Britt and look forward to reading about her and Base!

This is one of the best series ever!!

The downside to this books is that we are getting closer to the end of the series and a series that I never want to see end.

This time it is Maverick's story that we get to read and in true CM fashion, we get snippits of the rest of the gang too.

Has Maverick Sterling finally met his match in Salem?
Will he be as pussy whipped as the rest of them?

I Love Maverick, he has been the hardest one to tame and the 1st one to take the micky out of his friends when they

I can't believe we're nearing the end only Britt's book and the wedding left then this series is finished and as much as I to read theses book I really don't want this to end. Maverick's book was everything I wanted and more.

4.5 One of my favorites in the series, for sure. Maverick was the best! I loved him in this!! It didn't get 5 stars because Salem pissed me off toward the end. She was being ridiculous! What the heck is wrong with people? If you love someone there are always compromises you can make for each other- without being resentful, as well as things you can do for long distance. Ugh.

Sterling shore –I ADORE the Sterling shore series!! To me, it is one of the best series out there and one I find that I re-read because the characters are so good and entertaining. There is a lot of angst, drama, pain, craziness, sexy times, make ups, LOVE and the eventual HEA. Oh there is humor and that is also what draws me to this series. And Taming A Maverick is no different .
In this book, the couple is Maverick and Salem. We get to see Maverick in a whole new light. He isn’t the joker but s

All in the feels

I absolutely loved this book. Even though it is part of a large series, each character is unique. Each couple has a different dynamic, which I thought was impossible because of the amount of couples in the SS series. C.M. Owens continues to kill it and ruin every other writer for me.

There isn't anything that CM Owens writes that I do not like.

I was psyched when I heard there was a Maverick book coming, purely because I loved his antics, and I was so happy that there was someone who the same amount of antics that would be a perfect match for him and fit in perfectly with the rest of the gang.

I am a huge fan of the Sterling Shores series, and like many others I eagerly anticipated Maverick's story. I couldn't wait to see the arrogant, sexy and cocky Mav, the life of the party and prankster find his match and knock him on his ass. I've got to say although this is the eleventh book in the series, it is probably my favorite and I absoloutly loved it.

Taming A Maverick is told from a dual point of view, and is a wonderful blend of heart, heat and humor. Mav and Salem's story is sure to g

I have to admit I was a little nervous before i started reading this book, I read a couple of early reviews and some people had mentioned they didn’t find it as good as the previous books in this series so I was worried it wouldn’t live up to my expectations. I’m delighted that this wasn’t the case for me. I loved Taming A Maverick just as much as I have each of the couples books in this series.

With this being book 11, I really feel like I am personally invested in this group of people. I have been waiting for Maverick's story ever since he made his goofy appearance at the beginning of the series. And it so did not disappoint. I loved every second of this book. It took me through a pretty wide range of emotions while I read it. I was laughing like a lunatic, then grinning like a clown, then I was a little sad, then really sad, then angry, then really happy.

No surprise here that this book is great. I love this authors unique writing, her books have everything I absolutely love. The storyline is written to perfection, I loved that it's not super angsty and filled with unnecessary drama. The humour is so on point here!. The tampon scenes had me in legit tears I was chortling like miss piggy in the corner for a good 5 minutes at the whole fried situation. This is the perfectly imperfect relationship.
