EPUB BOOK Maverick Sheriff BY Delores Fossen – freewebdesing.com
Pects ties to the adoption ring The main one is that of Liam s identity and who is behind the attempts on his life That mystery is solved by the nd of the book with plenty of twists and turns to keep us guessing as to who was really behind it It all ties in to what appears to be a ring involving illegal adoptionsThere is an underlying theme of the importance of family Cooper and his brothers and father are all united in their determination to protect their family Jewel s return threatens their peace I liked the obvious love and respect among the brothers and their father and how they are ready to back up Cooper when he needs it The two sisters are very different personalities and definitely have a negative attitude toward the guys Their stepbrother is still something of an Lakeside Redemption enigma but I m sure we ll get to know him I did like the way that they stepped up in support during the trouble I ll be interested in learning about them 3 StarsThis was a goodnough story it was a fun read with good characters and an ok plot lineHere were my issues with this book Far too many characters I know this is the first in a series and I feel like the author needs to introduce us to all these characters that are coming up but it gets to be a little muchThe other thing was part of the plot with two competing storylines For a book that is only 224 pages there was too much going on Also I found parts of the main storyline unbelieveable I know it sounds like I didn t like this book because I did just not one of the author s best Jessa was run off the road and now her infant son needs surgery She found out he had a rare blood type that not many people had The doctor called and asked Sheriff Cooper to come donate Of all the people that could help her son it just had to be Sheriff Cooper Jessa and Cooper has had their differences since ADA Jessa opened up a old case involving Cooper s family Jesse sees a different side to him when he comes to help her son Cooper s wife was swept away in a flood Her body was found but his infant sons body that was in the same car and was never found Cooper took one look at Jessa s son and it was like looking at his own son Is it a coincidence that Jessa s son has his rare blood type or is this baby boy his own missing son The suspense action and romance to the story was very good This is a book I really In Pursuit of a Princess enjoyed When Texas sheriff Cooper McKinnon arrives at the hospital to donate blood to his nemesis Assistant District Attorney Jessa Wells son he is curious because the child who is practically the same age as the son he lost in a flood almost two years before and he has the same rare blood type that Cooper has Cooper s son and his wife perished when they were caught in uickly

just like his missing son With a kidnapper on the lose who is targeting Liam and the suspicion that he could be Cooper s son it will takeverything from Jessa and Cooper to come together and fight for Liam s safety Dark secrets will be revealed motional wounds reopened and lives ndangered I have to admit this is my first book by Delores Fossen Although I had heard a lot about her and have two of her books on my shelf but it just so happened that I didn t read any of them till now when I got this book from NetGalley and Harleuin and finally sat down to read The first thing that I always see while selecting a book is its cover Howsoever one may say that heshe never judges a book by its cover but it is a known fact that first impressions are formed by the covers It is the first thing our Dark Awakening eyes see when we pick up a book Here too when I picked this book to reuest the first thing I saw was the cover which is alluring I love cowboy stories and so when I see a cowboy on a cover I tend to get attracted The second thing that I see while deciding on the book is the blurb I loved the blurb It is appealing intriguing and instantly interests the reader and I felt like I had to know what happened I am not picky on the publishers or authors I may have my favorite authors but I never neglect new authors and am always happy to read books by authors new to me Delores book

happening with Jewel back along with her daughters and a stepsonThe second story is the main story in this book which involves Jessa s son Liam who is the target of a kidnapper An unknown person who is trying his level best to keep Liam s adoption secrets hidden and his connection unknown He has already committed murders and shown that he will not stop until all lose Hawks Way (Hawks Way ends are

MAVERICK SHERIFF by Delores Fossen is an xciting Western romantic suspense full of intriguing characters A good beginning for the type of series I will consider continuingWhy was it in Dorine s TBR Several of my reading friends The Child of the Soul and Other Stories enjoy Fossen s books so I wanted to try one That s why I grabbed this freebie along with a couple othersven though I m not an avid Harleuin Intrigue reader Not that I don t like suspense I do but I lean toward thrillers with a lighter romantic Childrens Phantasies element I m also partial to lawnforcement heroes since that s my husband I love it when they get the bad guys as well as the love of their lifeMy main problem with spicy romantic suspense is how in the middle of danger the H H can t wait to tear their clothes off one another This just seems unrealistic to me specially when their child can be harmed by some psycho Although MAVERICK SHERIFF did have some of those lements it wasn t over the top or constant so I didn t get frustrated with it The attraction was nicely done and mostly believableI had already DNF d two books from my freebie TBR prior to starting this one for out series TBR Challenge so my mood wasn t The Soviet Union exactly agreeable I had 24 hours to get my TBR book read and review written so I hoped the third was the charm Fossen had a lot to prove to keep me reading and she successfully kept me riveted until I finishedMAVERICK SHERIFF is a complicated plot with a variety of likeable characters and suspected villains Cooper McKinnon and his large family are wellstablished law Gods and Heroes enforcement of various kinds in Texas Their stance against lawlessness is a formidable wall forvil to penetrate But Science, Technology and Culture evil runs deep with no boundaries This is what they re up againstDistrict Attorney Jessa Wells needs the McKinnon family s help when threats are made against her adopted child She had paid dearly for this little boy and her love was allncompassing But the losses the McKinnons have No Beast So Fierce experienced in their lifetime are brought to the forefront as they reluctantly help Jessa That s because Jessa is prosecuting theirstranged mother for murderCooper has AB negative blood and is called in when Jessa s son needs it after their car accident Cooper and Jessa are at opposite sides of a legal battle well sort of since Cooper isn t xactly happy about seeing his mother again but that doesn t stop this couple s attraction to one another It may make them ponder it a bit but they just can t help themselves But this small town s secrets and the people who need to suash them may nd Last Chance Bride everything before they have a chance to decide on their romantic fateCooper is a definite alpha male so he made me bristle with his high handed ways toward Jessa sexually Jessa annoyed me sometimes when she forgot her professionalism because she was too busy swooning from the alpha s kisses For a smart woman she sometimes seems like the little woman who can t think straight when the man is around That just seemed off to me for her position as a district attorneyThose were very small annoyances on my part because overall Cooper treated Jessa with love and respect Jessa won me over when her mama bear instincts roared to save her son as well as Cooper I wasn t sure I liked this one at first but the hero s loss and discovery got to me This family is huge and dysfunctional I couldn t wait to find out what happened nextAs far as first books in a series this one does introduce a lot of characters and a mystery to be solved in future books Fossen does that well without much confusion on my part The suspense did seem a bit far fetched in places but that didn t stop me from gobbling it upMAVERICK SHERIFF is a solid 35 rating leaning closer to a 4 so I m giving it the benefit of my crankiness toward romantic suspense in general with a 4 rating I liked the setting but there wasn tnough detail for me to get a good feel for the area I m hoping future books lay that out I am curious about what will happen next because the characters really intrigue me and because these books are such a uick read I ll try book two If you re an avid Intrigue reader I m sure you ll love this book If you love a series that features a good number of law Whos Cheatin Who?

Ont against any difficulty faced by any member of their family The attraction between Jessa and Cooper is intense and slowly builds to a concrete feeling of love I could sympathize with these two and prayed for a happily ver after for them They both have been traumatized in the past and are two broken people who need love to make them whole I loved the scenes with these two in them and was very invested in all the action of the story All in all Maverick Sheriff is an Dangerous Waters (Cold Case Files entertaining book that gives the readerntertainment a surge of The Husband (Smytheshire, Massachusetts, excitement and adrenalin some intense action anngrossing suspense and a love story that is heartfelt and deeply njoyable I give Maverick Sheriff 45 out of 5 and look forward to reading the next books in the series Delores Fossen is a talented writer and I would definitely read of her books now I recommend this book to all lovers of romantic suspense You will love the book I received the ARC from NetGalley and Harleuin and I am very thankful to them The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced There are a lot of problems with this bookWe have a great premiseCooper McKinnon is a Texas Sheriff His wife and little baby died in a flood a few years ago the boy s body is never found The book opens with him coming into the hospital to give blood to a boy The boy is xactly the age his son would be if he had lived The boy is also the adopted son of ADA Jessa Wells Jessa is out gunning for Cooper s family she s reopening a case against Cooper s An Italian Education estranged birth mother accusing her of murderSo there s no love lost between the two Cooper just met Jessa when she moved to town 3 months agoIt should be obvious what happens of course the boy is Cooper s long lost son And of course Jessa and Cooper start kissingtcI didn t buy it I didn t buy it one bit Cooper just met this woman three months ago and those three months have been very strained hostile months in which they hate Protecting the Colton Bride Coltons Cowboy Code each other and battleach other legally and professionally Now suddenly he s attracted to her and kissing her and stuff Why Because it turns out she is the adoptive mother of the son he thought was dead I just did NOT see these two falling in love Look-Alike Lawman (Texas Twins, especially not over the course of three daysReally Three or four days And thatnds with them Daddy Wanted exchanging I love yous and view spoilergettingngaged hide spoiler Mostly stupid I didn t like the DA lady the rest felt very much like copy schematic It was mostly uite uninteresting Not Forbidden Stranger even the whole kidnappingselling thing made it thrilling And the culprit That was a cheap shot It also had insta love and a stupid ready made family solution Hotness Rating 25 out of 5 Maverick Sheriff the first book of the Sweetwater Ranch series by Delores Fossen This book had it s highs and lows I liked it but didn t love it I will definitely read the next books in this series The highs were greater than the lows and there is just something about Delores Fossen s writing style that I can t resistCooper McKinnon lost his son and wife tragically So when he s called to the hospital to donate his rare blood for the son of the woman that is trying to make his life hell it s almost too much It brings back bad memories and opens up a can of worms that will forever change his life Jessa Wells isn t well liked by the McKinnon family But Cooper did step up to help save her son s life Now some things have come to light that have the potential to destroy her and she has no choice but to put her trust into the same man that hates her I loved Cooper His past losses broke my heartspecially considering he s such a good man His family has a ton of problems going on right now and hopefully we ll learn about that in the future books I get Jessa s fears and I thought she handled it relatively well It was a terrible spot she was in Some of the Snowy River Man events in this book were way tooasy and unbelievable But as I said that story was good Night Moves (Harlequin Blaze enough to counter all of thatYou can find this This is my first Delores Fossen book but Harleuin s INTRIGUE line is one I feel I get a lot of wins out of They re typically smart uick paced stay on point and never insults the readerI feel like this does that for the most part Except you knew there was anxcept rightTHIS IS WHERE YOU GET A WARNING THAT SPOILERS WILL BE HEREBUT NO I WON T TELL YOU WHO THE VILLAIN ISYou can guess from the spoiler that Cooper assumes Liam is his son and immediately has his blood tested Of course this just pisses Jessa off as she goes into mama bear mode Les brumes d'avalon : roman even as she completely understands what s compelling him to do itThe book opens with a hit and run where Jessa Liam are run off the road The car stops but takes off when someonelse comes along the abandoned back road almost immediatelyThat s the set upThroughout the book people say things like HeSheThey they assume it s a he thru most of the book so let s go with that but there are a lot of suspects This isn t a giveaway pointHe won t shoot at us with Liam in the carWhatThe assumption is they almost killed him once There s a lot of kidnapped babies subplots and assumptions that don t go with the Malakai (Wicked Games, evidence There s the assumption that if the boy or the test or disappears no one willver be able to prove if Liam is Coopers you know beyond the results being stored anywhere or the blood from the hospital or other sources of DNAor if they take the test away you know the ability to RE TESTThe continuity The Carpenters Wife and Heart of Stone errors around the mystery at first felt like red herrings but as the book went on it just felt like loose writing It feels like theditor said I want you to throw stuff in there so people don t guess who the bad guy isOR the writer was trying to be really complicated and the Celtic Fire (Rogue Angel, editorreader never helped rein it inOn the flip side I loved Cooper and Jessa I loved that he wasn t stupid about her and that she kept her guard up but not insane I loved that they were both willing to put Liam first and worked togethereven if that meant you never worried about how the Problem of Liam would be solved It was kind of a POOF We re A Family Now situation They re a couple you want to root for You want Cooper to regain the opportunity to love again You want Jessa to overcome her past to let a man inand you want that man to be CooperThe secondary arc and characters are interesting if a little unclear But that s completely acceptable for INTRIGUE since the books are short to focus only on one plot line BOTTOMLINE uick pacedasy read great chemistry and a good set up for an interesting series I would definitely grab this book Even with the looseness around the mystery you can see where Ms Fossen is setting up a great set of booksFinal Rank 35 starWould I try the author again AbsolutelyRomance 7Heroine 7Hero 8Laughter 5Heat Yes but later in the book and not over the topCheating NoSeries 1Cliffhanger The book is standalone but this first in the series sets up a nice complicated arc we re just diving intoThis ARC was received thru NetGalley for an honest unbiased review. Nd the danger's far from over Fighting her desire for Cooper Jessa has no choice but to join forces with the maverick cowboy Jessa knows working together is their best shot at keeping the child safe But it's the possibility of a future alone that breaks Jessa's hea.
