Book Review – Wildcat (Mavericks Tackle Love, #1) by Max Monroe


From the New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of TAPPING THE BILLIONAIRE comes a new four book series of Romantic Comedy standalones. 

Wildcat: a football formation in which the ball is snapped, not to the quarterback, but to another player lined up in the quarterback position. 

Wild, Cat: a beautiful woman from the sky, who hooked me against the rails, and has me on the ropes. Sweet like honey, with a hint of sass burning behind her pretty brown eyes, she took over my heart without warning. 

I’m Quinn Bailey, quarterback for the New York Mavericks. 
Sports analysts predicted I’d break records and take my team all the way. 

But no one predicted this. 

And just like the other team, I never saw it coming. 

Things this book is: 
• Romantic Comedy 
• #1 in the Mavericks Tackle Love Series 
• Can be read as a complete standalone. 
Things it isn’t: 
• Paranormal: The only thing magical is inside Quinn Bailey’s pants. 
• Boring: Pssh, please. Max Monroe doesn’t do boring. 
• Short: Prior to reading, prepare yourself for one huge, long, thick…book.

Wildcat was a sexy, funny, charming, and swoon-worthy standalone romantic comedy and start to the Mavericks Tackle Love series, and I absolutely loved it! The storyline and characters were phenomenal, and I loved Max Monroe’s writing style and sense of humor. Anything these two ladies write, I will definitely read, and I can’t wait to dive into the next Mavericks Tackle Love standalone, Pick Six!

   The storyline was great. It was different than I expected, but better than I imagined. Max Monroe did a fantastic job with the plot, and I loved the introduction to the Mavericks Tackle Love series. I’m a huge fan of sports romance, particularly football, and Wildcat was one of my favorites. I’ll admit, there were a few difficult moments throughout, but every book (and real life) has conflicts. Unfortunately, it just comes with the territory. I will say, though, the authors did a wonderful job concluding Quinn and Cat’s story.

   The characters were fabulous. Quinn Bailey and Catharine (Cat) Wild completely stole my heart, and I fell head over heels in love with them. Quinn took me by surprise. I knew he was a Southern gentleman from cameos in previous books, but he exceeded all of my expectations and then some. Quinn was sexy, charming, funny, and made me swoon HARD. He was very romantic and I loved his pursuit of Cat. Cat has been one of my favorite heroines from Max Monroe. She was sweet, independent, and more reserved, but no less funny than past Max Monroe heroines. Quinn and Cat were a perfect match for each other, and I adored watching their love story unfold. I loved their personalities and smoking hot chemistry together, and how their relationship progressed throughout. I loved reading the book from both Quinn and Cat’s point of view, and all of their banter and interactions with each other. Most of the secondary characters – namely Quinn’s brother and Mavericks teammates, and Cat’s friends – were an excellent and entertaining addition to the story, and I loved them so much. Quinn and Cat’s story had some difficult moments, but even with the ups and downs, I was extremely happy with the conclusion.

   Wildcat was a sexy, humorous, addicting, and entertaining standalone romantic comedy, and I would HIGHLY recommend it! Max Monroe did an amazing job with this book, and I was very pleased with the outcome to Quinn and Cat’s story. Wildcat was an amazing introduction to the Mavericks Tackle Love series of standalone romantic comedies, and I’m so excited to read the next one, Pick Six!
