Book Review: The Shameless Maverick by Louisa George

If you've read some of my romance reviews this year then you'll know that I am totally obsessed with the 200 Harley Street series, and I'm up to the penultimate instalment, The Shameless Maverick by Louisa George. 

I honestly don't know what I'll get overly invested in next, but I am going to miss this exclusive clinic.

The Shameless Maverick by Louisa George 200 Harley Street Mills & Boon Medical romance book cover

Junior surgeon Kara has been assigned her first high-profile case.

Great news – if she wasn’t working with surgeon Declan Underwood, the man she kissed at the hospital ball.

Declan’s notoriety with women is rivalled only by his reputation as the best reconstructive surgeon.

But Kara’s about to discover there’s more to her charismatic maverick than meets the eye…

5 Word Review: Loyalty, family, love, trust, commitment.

I can't believe I am almost at the end of this series. 

I loved coming back to 200 Harley Street, and meeting even more of the characters who had been fluttering on the peripheral of the previous stories. With its sojourn across the Irish Sea, it felt very different from the previous books, even though most of the story retained the clinical setting.

Kara is messy and had had a complicated past - her heart has been betrayed and it makes her wary and reckless in equal measure. It added a dash of something unpredictable to her character and I absolutely loved it.

Declan is very closed off, and yet strikingly passionate. I loved the care and understanding he showed for his patients, the generosity he had when it came to sharing his skills. I loved that he learned to open up and trust.

Together, they are marvellous. I couldn't help but want them to be together, I was practically shouting KISS at the book every time they were alone. They just work. They're perfect.

I really quite enjoyed that The Shameless Maverick spent a lot of time away from the clinic and hospital. It's not that I don't like the usual setting, but more that this gave the story a chance to pull much more at my heartstrings. This could possibly be the most heart-warming of the series, and I loved the scenes on the farm in Ireland. The familial setting meant that Declan's character ended up with much more depth, and I loved it. I loved seeing his love for his family, his care for those around him, and how his past shaped him.

Next up, The Tortured Hero by Amy Andrews. I especially can't wait for this one!
