Thrown into a disastrous canoe trip, they must work together to survive. Maggie must face her demons and trust Mace with her life. Mace is determined to save her, regardless of what the future brings.
WOWZA is all I have to say for Julia Rachel Barrett’s novel, Pushing her Boundaries. As soon as I got the E-copy I devoured the hottest and most seductive pieces I have read in a while. Literally reading this book within less than twenty-four hours, I instantly fell in love with the characters. Maggie a hospice nurse who is so very strong willed and very responsible, gives off the impression of yet another female who is too alpha for her own good, in actuality her “alphaness” as a female was phenomenal. There were times you wanted to slap her because of the irritation you got from her being so unrelenting in her “black and white” lifestyle. She totally needed to live the disasters that she went through in order to realize her true feelings for Mace.
Mace, aka Mr. hot and arrogant, was just that. VERY hot and VERY arrogant. The type of “alpha” every female in this free world is drawn to. Knowing that he is more than capable of handling any type of female and any type of situation with the utmost confidence is a quality that you can’t help but trip over your own tongue as you drool over him. Flying on the same plane as Maggie to meet his brother’s fiancé, he knew from the get go that Maggie was headed to the same destination as him. Being sly, and again, arrogant he kept that little tid-bit to himself.
As one disastrous situation after another happened to the main characters, they learn to deal with each other, learn how to push each other’s buttons and learn to actually be tolerant of one another.
The sex/lovemaking in this book was off the charts. Again every woman’s fantasy. I am soooo not going to divulge the details on those scenes. You definitely need to purchase your copy of Julia’s book in order to find out just how sexy Mace and Maggie can be. I swear I thought my Kindle was going to melt.
There were no errors that I found while reading. All in all the pace of the book was on point. Not too fast, not to slow. Always kept you wanting to know what was going to happen next with this dynamic duo. I cannot wait to read more from this author. I enjoyed every minute of this read.
