Random Release & Review . . . Maxwell by Nicole James

A Brothers Ink novel
Release Day Blitz

A sweet, romantic love story, awash in heartbreak and emotion—
Malee was sheltered all her life,
Until the day she walked into Brothers Ink
Lucky for her… he’s waiting.

She’s naïve and wary.
But that’s okay…
Maxwell O’Rourke is a patient man.
Some things are worth waiting for.

He’s nothing Malee ever thought she’d want, but everything she needs.
He makes her feel beautiful and worthy, even as he makes her burn with desire.

When an overprotective father with deep-rooted family traditions tries to come between them, she’ll have to make some hard choices. And she’ll have to be ready to face the consequences.

And just how far is Maxwell willing to go for the girl who owns his heart?


**My Review**

4 stars

This romance was oh so sweet and cute. I found it beyond endearing that Maxwell, this humongous brute of a man was tamed by this wisp of a girl - so freaking adorable! You have to be careful when writing about a character with a disability; so many things could go wrong, so many people could be offended some how, so many people could be triggered. I think Nicole James did a great job of portraying Malee's disability and the way the boys responded to it. I liked that she incorporated a bit of the tradition that encompassed Malee's culture. I liked that the relationship could have been perceived as insta-love, but it still developed at a decent pace. Max was determined to do right by Malee and respect her and her family, even when he wasn't given that same respect back.

This book wasn't as dramatic and entertaining as Book 1 in the series, but it was still enjoyable. I look forward to Liam's story.

**I was given an ARC and I reviewed voluntarily.**
