In a promising start to a new series, Zanetti brings forth something sweet and spicy for readers to devour. If small town romances are your favorites, then do give this book a shot. You cannot go wrong with a cowboy hero! ~ Under the Covers
In the first of a brand new series from Rebecca Zanetti called the Maverick Montana, AGAINST THE WALL is a glimpse into the life of Landscape Architect Sophie Smith. Sophie is a city girl who finds herself in the country where she hopes to place a high-end golf course in. However, before she knows it, she gets swept off her feet by a sexy cowboy. Little does she know that the hot cowboy is also tribal lawyer, Jake Lodge. What does love have planned for the city girl and the cowboy?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Zanetti pens a dashing hero and an intelligent heroine. Their love blooms at a real, believable pace, but it is the sense of family that turns this book from sweet to heartwarming. Zanetti creates a community within the pages of this book so that the city girl, Sophie feels welcomed and at ease in the different environment. It almost mimics reader’s reactions as they read this first book of the series. Paired with the friendly personalities and the sweetest character of the bunch Leila, Jake’s daughter and you have a small town romance feel to the book that makes me want to cheer with excitement!
Another great thing about this book is that there are so many characters that I would love to have their story told. Jake’s family are a thrill to read about and I am hoping that each of his siblings get their own book. I would love to read about Colton, Quinn and Dawn. Similarly, there is an intriguing character named Hawk whom I would love to see as a hero in a future book! One of the downsides of having so many characters is that, readers can feel a little overwhelmed with all the different characters being introduced all at once. I will admit I got a little confused with all the different names but that didn’t seem to bother me so much after learning more about them.
In a promising start to a new series, Zanetti brings forth something sweet and spicy for readers to devour. If small town romances are your favorites, then do give this book a shot. You cannot go wrong with a cowboy hero!

Did you like this review? If so, please tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
