Book Review: Trapped with the Maverick Millionaire by Joss Wood

Series: Book 1 in the ‘From Mavericks to Married’

“Wanting approval was like waiting to catch a boat at an airport. Constantly hopeless. Endlessly disappointing.” ~~ Joss Wood (Book: Trapped With the Maverick Millionaire)

I think it’s been a while that I published a review of Mills and Boon novel here. So here it is!

Let’s find out just a little bit about ‘Trapped with the Maverick Millionaire’….

Genre: Contemporary Romance. Mills and Boon.

Main Characters: Rory Kydd, Mac McCaskill.

‘Trapped With the Maverick Millionaire by Joss Wood’ ~~ Synopsis:

Once upon a time ago, Rory had a crush on her elder sister’s famous hockey player boyfriend Mac McCaskill. It almost created an irreparable rift between the sisters. But life goes on and they’ve moved on and gotten over it all.  

Now Rory is a physiotherapist and wants to start her independent practice. When Rory gets a call from Mac’s friend-cum-partner to treat Mac in secret, she wonders if she should get involved.

Getting involved with Mac even professionally would churn up memories and emotions she doesn’t want to face. She also doesn’t want to create problems in her relationship with her sister for someone like Mac.

It would take her years to save the money she needs to start her independent practice. But if she agrees to treat Mac, she could have the money sooner.

No one ever encouraged Mac to become anything, not even his own mother. But he didn’t want to live a miserable life, struggling to make a living on a daily basis. So he runs away and with determination and hard work, makes a better life for himself.

After getting injured during a match, Mac wants to get well as soon as possible and without anyone, other than his friends, getting wiser about his problem. Too much is at stake, so he reluctantly agrees to work with Rory.

There’s too much past between them. Their attraction is still alive and now that they are around, he wants to explore that but Rory doesn’t. She’s not even sure if she wants to treat him, considering he seems like a difficult patient.

But in the end they come to an understanding and Rory start the treatment. To escape from the prying eyes of the paparazzi, they get out of the town for a while, so Mac could recover without anyone wanting to find out about him much.

They fight their attraction, they fight over who knows how to treat Mac best and finds out more about what keeps them away from a committed relationship.

The more they find out about each other, the more they grow close together and wonder if it’s just for a short while or something has changed.


‘Trapped With the Maverick Millionaire’ is one of the few books where I end up having not much to say. Not because I didn’t like reading the story, I usually have too much to say about those stories.

I enjoyed reading Rory & Mac’s story even if in the beginning I wasn’t much sure of it. But once I started, I got interested in the story.

Everything is nicely wrapped up in the end, but I still got a feeling that it all moved a bit too fast.

I’m still rather impressed with ‘Trapped with the Maverick Millionaire’ and the stories, Mills and Boon is presenting these days. Or maybe I got lucky and found myself a handful of novels that are good.

I think after a couple of years of not liking Mills and Boon books much, I can once again say that I’m back to reading them as the stories are good again.

Thankfully, Joss Wood has written the rest of the books in the series From Mavericks to Married and not ten different authors. I hate that trend.  

“Men always disappointed and lover never lasted and the fairytales the world fed women about happily-ever-afters were a load of hooey.” ~~ Joss Wood (Book: Trapped With the Maverick Millionaire)

Hit or Miss: Hit.
