    Over The Top

    Over the Top is forbidden romance with a strong suspenseful underlying plot. Hawk has been fighting his attraction to his best friends sister for what feels to him like forever. Dawn was spurned once by Hawk, but she's never stopped wanting him. Now Hawk is back in town, the old folk are meddling, and danger is lurking. There is a lot of push, pull, and intense emotion sparking between Dawn and Hawk. It was easy to feel like I was right there with them, watching the sparks fly! I liked how they came together, but at times it felt like neither of them was really ready for the other because of the push and pull between them. I was happy when Hawk decided to just go for it with Dawn, despite his misgivings. The fact that they have a background together made the speed of the relationship when they did move on it believable. Hawk kept part of himself tucked away for a while, but eventually talks to Dawn about himself, what he does, and what he fears. I liked that about him. He is very protective not only of Dawn, but of everyone he considers his family. I felt that Dawn was not really understanding of the scope of the situation with Hawk and at times this made me feel frustrated with her. As grown up as she is, she is still quite young. Sometimes heroines just need to accept that they are not superwoman. The suspenseful part of the plot was intriguing and Rebecca did a good job of keeping me wondering what would happen for much of the book. I loved the secondary characters, especially Dawn's family and the older match making ladies in town! The family felt real, and I liked how they were with each other. The ladies provided high entertainment! I'd recommend Over the Top to romance readers who like suspense woven in to a strong, tension filled romance!

    OK read

    Not my favorite of the series. Although nothing really wrong with the book, I just couldn't connect with the characters. While Hawk is definitely one hot alpha male, his control freak tendencies are a bit off-putting. Dawn just annoyed me. The fact that she thinks she can handle a drug lord on her own was just laughable.

    Love and Humor

    First, this book fully stands alone, I have not read the others in the series though I can guess who stars in them. This story is amazing. Hawk is a dreamy dominate exmilitary out for revenge. Dawnie is his bestfriend's kid sister she does the books for the family business and sinks with a band some evenings. The chemistry between the two is off the charts in a backk and forth struggle for power and protection as they see if they can make it last But what really makes this book is Mrs. Poppins and Mrs. Hudson. Those two ladies had me in stitches throughout the whole book. With matchmaking schemes that are odd, strange, invasive and down right hilarious. Seriously they make the book.

    Hawk and Dawn's story finally!

    I've been waiting for Dawn and Hawk's book and in the previous Maverick Montana stories, it's been made clear that Dawn's had a thing for Hawk for ages (and vice versa) but with his military stints and other jobs, he hasn't stuck around long enough for anything between them to happen. But he's finally decided that Dawn is all grown up and if she wants him for a short fling, she can have him. What was interesting to me about this story is that there is very little conflict between Dawn and Hawk at this point. The conflict comes externally, from the latest job that Hawk is involved in and how it's going to affect his family - Dawn and her brothers. So it's different than your typical romance because there is no big buildup to a misunderstanding or revelation or something that's going to rock their boat. Instead what you get is two people who finally have the sense to enjoy each other - and they do that with a sexy style all their own. Their love scenes have been worth waiting for and show all the emotion that they've been holding back until now. I enjoyed seeing them finally getting together. A big part of the story is how Dawn's older brothers and sisters-in-law take the news and also how they make it clear to Hawk that he has always been and will always be part of the family. I enjoyed those interactions greatly. The suspense plot added a bit of action to the story, nothing overly crazy but enough to make it clear to Hawk that it's time for him to settle down. The story has been left open for some spin off stories with a few of the other characters and I'm looking forward to seeing where that goes. The angst is minimal, there are some good laughs, and great sexual chemistry between Dawn and Hawk. It was a satisfying read. 3.5 stars.

    Another great book by Rebecca Zanetti

    I love Rebecca Zanetti and her books and I can honestly say that Over the Top was another great read. I was intrigued from the first few pages and I couldn't put it down till I read the last word. The story was intriguing and fast paced, filled with danger, suspense, excitement, romance, tenderness and so much hotness that it will just leave you breathless. The characters are well developed, have deepness and the chemistry between them it is simply off the charts :) I have to say that Hawk is one of my favorite bad boys. He is the ultimate tall, dark and dangerous hottie :) With his intense and mesmerizing gaze he can melt your panties and if you are somehow resistant to that, his dirty mouth will simply finish you off. And when you add to that that his heart has belonged to one woman for the past few years but he has resisted his attraction in order to save her from heartache, then you can simply just give your heart to him on a silver platter :) He is also ready to protect his woman at any cost. He is loyal to his friends and family and the people he loves always come first. Dawn is Hawk's perfect other half. She is strong and independent, loyal and loving. Well, she still has to prove to her older brothers that she is all grown up, but she definitely knows how to go about it ;) I loved that she's been in love with Hawk since she was a little girl. Somehow it feels like a meant to be together story and I love those :) The only thing I can say about the book is: I LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT!!! It is simply a great combination of suspense, romance and humor. I definitely recommend it and if you haven't read anything by Rebecca Zanetti so far, this is a perfect place to start. As I haven't read the rest of the books in the series, I am diving into them the first chance I get :) The big plus is that the books can be read independently, so it is not a problem if you don't start from the beginning ;) This review was originally posted at Living In Our Own Story Book Blog. I received an ARC of the book in exchange of an honest review.
