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?

Liza's Review:

Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully have done it once again with Captivating in Love. I absolutely love the Maverick Billionaires series of books and am so happy to see the Maverick family extend to friends and family members.

I knew when we first met Ari's brother Gideon I wanted to know more about him and couldn't wait to get his book. I couldn't have picked a better heroine for him than Rosie Diaz. Single mom to Jorge and foster sister to Ari, Rosie is such a strong woman. She has wanted Gideon from the moment she set eyes on him, and seems to understand him in a way that I felt surprised Gideon from the beginning. Gideon is extremely standoffish, yet when he is with his nephew Noah and Rosie's son Jorge, you could see glimpses of the real Gideon.

I loved Gideon and Rosie as a couple.They both had things from their pasts that gave them each pause when looking to the future. Rosie was a teenage single mom, whose ex dumped her and ran when she got pregnant and Gideon is still dealing with guilt from losing track of Ari after joining the Army to help support her and their mom, as well as PSTD from serving. I loved how Rosie just got Gideon and without realizing, Gideon became so very protective of Rosie and Jorge. Their chemistry was amazing and I had all the happy sighs seeming them together.

I also loved Jorge and Noah being front and center in this story. Those two boys were so adorable and their excitement and happiness literally leaped off of the pages. I found myself absolutely laughing out loud at their actions. I felt like they both helped Gideon come out of his shell right along with Rosie.

Captivating in Love was such an amazing story and I can't wait to read more books in this series. I highly recommend this story to fans of romances filled with love, friendship, laughter, and family...the one you were born from or made yourself.
