Description

Gideon Jones came back from war a changed man. Though the Maverick Billionaires claim he’s one of their own, he knows he doesn't deserve to be part of their tightly knit unit. Just like he doesn't deserve Rosie Diaz—an amazing mother…and an utterly captivating woman that he can't stop dreaming about.

Rosie Diaz pulled herself out of the foster care system and made a great life for herself while raising Jorge, the son she adores. Only one thing is missing—a good man, one she can respect and love with her whole heart. A man exactly like her best friend’s older brother Gideon.

When Rosie and Gideon agree to take care of Matt and Ari’s son, Noah, while the couple is on their honeymoon, they have no idea of the havoc two matchmaking little boys can create. Not to mention the steamy kisses that Rosie and Gideon can’t help but steal from each other as their connection deepens and grows. But when mother and son are threatened, Gideon will stop at nothing to protect them. Will he finally believe that he truly is Maverick material…and worthy of Rosie and Jorge’s love?

CAPTIVATING IN LOVE is part of Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully’s bestselling series about The Maverick Billionaires. While it can easily be read as a standalone story, you'll likely enjoy reading the other books too.

The Maverick Billionaires are sexy, self-made men from the wrong side of town who survived hell together and now have everything they ever wanted. But when each Maverick falls head-over-heels for an incredible woman he never saw coming, he will soon find that true love is the only thing he ever really needed.

    I was sooooo excited that another Maverick was getting his story! And Gideon and Rosie’s story did not disappoint. Gideon has been welcomed into the Maverick fold, but he’s had difficulty accepting this. After the traumas of his past, he feels unworthy. Worse than this is his tremendous longing for Rosie but his certainty that he could never deserve her. Rosie sees through to Gideon’s soul and loves what she finds there. He is so loving and kind to Little Noah and Jorge, and so protective of his sister Ari. She knows he is full of the past and has deemed himself not good enough for love and friendship, and she longs to prove him wrong. When they are thrown together with Noah and Jorge, will Rosie find the courage to breech Gideon’s walls? And Will Gideon have the courage to open the door to his heart? (SIGH)

    Wow, love this! Gideon and Rosie are perfect for one another and their story is very touching. Love the Mavericks and how they are so supportive of one another. Rosie portrays a classy way of letting a man know you're interested in him romantically which is exactly what Gideon needs. So happy for this compassionate couple, authors did a great job making this entertaining, attraction that blossoms without aggression. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation from the author.

    ARC for honest review with no compensation Captivating in Love is book 6 in The Maverick Billionaires series by Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully. Such sexy, handsome men and the strong women who tame them in this series!! Gideon Jones back from war a changed man and finally reunited with his sister who he lost touch with while overseas, his mother dies and she was put in foster care (Ariana from Fearless in Love) feels he doesn’t deserve to be a part of the Maverick family or deserve the love of beautiful, sexy Rosie Diaz and her son. When Ari and Matt leave for their honeymoon, Gideon will be taking care of their son, Noah who is best friends with Rosie’s son, Jorge. Spending more time with Rosie only makes him want her in this life full time. Rosie on the other hand has been captivated by Gideon from their very first interaction. Spending time with Gideon and the boys shows her the real person he is inside and not the man he shows to the world. When trouble starts for Rosie, Gideon steps up and will do anything to protect and keep Rosie and Jorge safe... Lots of sparks, emotional, two sneaky matchmaking boys, revisiting with the Mavericks Gideon’s guilt from the war, strong characters dealing with their past, and tears will keep you reading to see if these two find their HEA!!
  • Cheers for Rosie & Gideon!

    These books just keep getting better! The Andre/Skully writing team weaves a captivating story that is romantic and powerful. Difficult times, a horrific experience, and guilt weigh heavy on Gideon’s heart. Two little boys are able to bring him joy, but letting himself free to build a relationship seems impossible. Rosie has sworn off men after her horrible experience with the father of her child, but she can’t stop her feelings for her best friend’s older brother. A constant theme in this series is that family is built on love and trust, not just blood relations. Rosie and Gideon’s story shows how strong the Maverick family is and how they bring everyone together.

    How do I become an honorary Maverick? I really, really want to be a Maverick. No matter what happens in their lives they away end up so happy, so in love. If you have read the previous books, (boy I really hope you have because the are AMAZING), you will remember Ari's best friend, Rosie. You should also remember how Matt and Ari found her long lost brother, Gideon. Captivating in Love is Rosie and Gideon's story. Of course we can't for get her darling son, Jorge. Rosie is getting by, giving Jorge a good life. Where Jorge goes, Noah will attempt to follow. After a beautiful wedding, Noah is now Ari's son and Gideon's nephew. It was written in the past that Rosie and Gideon would have a beautiful future. But first they both have to conquer their pasts. As someone from the bay area, this was a trip down memory lane. There were so many wonderful field trips with the boys. So many match making opportunities. These boys have game. Open the pages and jump in for a wild ride as Jorge and Noah scheme to bring Rosie and Gideon together. Stay on the emotional ride as Rosie and Gideon deal with their pasts so they can have a brighter future. A wonderful, captivating love story that will have you smiling.

    The war changed Gideon and he still can’t believe he is part of a family. Once he met Rosie Diaz he was captivated but knew he was no where good enough for her. Rosie had eyes only for Gideon and was ready to make the move to get him to notice her. Little did they know they had two scheme little boys helping along the way. So love this series. Can’t wait for the next book!

    I loved this book and devoured it in hours. Gideon fights his feelings for Rosie, doesn’t think he’s good enough for her. She’s already fallen for him, he’s so good with her son Jorge and his nephew Noah. Had some tears as he’s finally healed from his past. Stayed on edge regarding her ex and what he’d do. It’s a very heartwarming story, loved the sense of family of the Mavericks and how he’s now included as part of Rosie’s family now. I really loved their happy ever after too. I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy and I highly recommend this book.
  • Another Maverick Success!

    This book just makes you feel good! So much heart and love. It’s so refreshing to find a series that exemplifies working hard to overcome circumstances and taking a chance on people. Family is more than DNA and this book, this series, makes you feel like a part of the family. Such a sweet read! I also loved seeing some of our Sullivan family mentioned. ARC received in exchange for honest review. -Blender2007

    I loved this book. Gideon needs to work to a lot of changes. Being in the military, he losses his Team, his friends and now he need to fit in?!?!! The Mavericks show him, just because you don’t share blood doesn’t mean you don’t belong. Susan and Bob shows all the boys they are family. Ari and Matt’s starts the book but it Noah and Jorge that bring the family together. MUST READ!
