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.

And just how far is Maxwell willing to go for the girl who owns his heart?
Add to Goodreads
Maxwell O'Rourke is older and wiser, no longer one to go looking for trouble as was his want in his younger years. He's got a job in the family business and helping out Pop's at the gym. He's got everything he needs, but there's something is missing he can't put his finger on.
Malee isn't you're normal twenty year-old, she has disability that her family has used to shelter and protect her. However, she's feeling restless and wants to get out and experience all that life has to offer.
A chance encounter brings these two together and the attraction is instant and intense.
The two enter into a clandestine affair, but when things turn serious the time to let her family know about their relationship becomes necessary.
So when opposition to their relationship surfaces, will they allows others to keep them apart or will they fight for what their heart yearns for?
Maxwell is an incredible journey of two people from vastly different background that find a way to come together and make a lastly connection.
Right from the start I was taken with Max. He's got a huge heart and fiercely loyal to those he's closest to. And from the moment he lays eyes on Malee, he knows she's his other half. Despite all the obstacles that would stand in their way, he never let that stop him. He knows what he wants and will whatever it takes to make those dreams come true.
I love how Malee sees the man behind the ink, she sees Max's heart. With her family and her disability, she could have been closed off to those not in her immediate circle, but she's open and willing to try new things. She grows stronger and more independent thanks to Max's love and support.
I really loved this read and feel hard for Max. Watching these two fall in love, along with the ups and downs of them being together, made this a book I couldn't put down. It just goes to show that can't judge people by their outward appearance.
If you love a story with heart, soul, romance, and hero that will surprise you, then I highly recommend you pick up Maxwell.
