The Maverick's Virgin Mistress Reviews
Courtesy of CK2S Kwips and KritiquesAlicia Montoya’s brother is her only family after their parents’ death. As a Mexican with traditional family values, Alex takes his responsibility for protecting Alicia very seriously. He is set against her moving out on her own and is always scaring off potential suitors for Alicia. It’s no wonder she’s kept her current flame, Rick Jones, secret from Alex. When someone sets their barn on fire, Alicia turns to the one man besides her brother she trusts to keep her safe. Now she plans to use her wiles on Rick to finally lose her virginity.Rick Jones is actually Justin Dupree, a rich playboy who is undeniably attracted to Alicia. He is starting to wonder if it’s time to give up his wild ways but there’s one slight problem… Their entire relationship is built on a lie. When Alicia discovers his secret sooner than he anticipated, Justin will do whatever it takes to win back the heart of The Maverick’s Virgin Mistress.I’ve been a fan of Jennifer Lewis ever since her first book was released a few years ago. She always delivers a solid romance with compelling characters and believable circumstances. Location always plays a key role in Jennifer’s stories, and in her installment in The Texas Cattlemen’s Club, we see a little bit of ranch life in Texas, through Alex and Alicia’s eyes. Whoever would have imagined the cattle industry was so competitive? We also see some big city life through Justin’s experiences. We have just the right balance of stage setting, to get a vivid picture of the Justin and Alicia’s world, without detracting from the heart of the tale… the romance.Alicia is slightly naïve, due to Alex’s protectiveness, so she’s not exactly sure how to handle someone like Justin. When she discovers his betrayal, she begins to realize that there was more to Justin’s isolating her from his family and friends than she imagined and is angry with herself for the precious gift she gave him. Justin is worldly and highly experienced, loving Alicia all the more for how far removed she is from his former bachelor life. Justin and Alicia are the perfect example of opposites attracting and this makes their relationship even more intense and emotional.While there is an undercurrent of suspense and tension to The Maverick’s Virgin Mistress, the mystery is understated so it doesn’t overpower the story. None the less, we are kept guessing as to what is to come as a result of the arson on the Montoya ranch. It becomes apparent fairly early on that this whole mystery is unfolding throughout the entire The Texas Cattlemen’s Club series and the truth will not be revealed until the final book. Don’t let that fool you though, the story of Justin and Alicia is complete and stands alone, with only the subplot carrying through to the rest of the series.While I had not originally intended to read the entire miniseries, having only chosen to read The Maverick’s Virgin Mistress because I enjoy Jennifer Lewis’s writing, I may now have to go seek out the rest of the books in the series to get the entire story entwining the 6 books.© Kelley A.

"Good things come to those who wait." - Justin DupreeThis book was hot,sexy and romantic; an enjoyable read. The story was wonderful. Do men lie Justin really exist? Imagine a man telling you "I'm a long way from perfect but with you by my side I'll be the best I can be." And I also loved Alicia's older brother Alex. I loved how protective he was and the way he love his sister. Alicia was so damn lucky having two wonderful men in her life.

When in trashy camp, read trashy book. Decent juicy details but went downhill after the first half, I didn't read this for the plot! Ugh.
I really enjoyed this book. More Review to come.
Again too much about the couples and not enough of the Cattleman Club service
