Title: To the Max
Series: Bowen #3
Author: Elle Aycart

Forensic accountant Annie Griffin has always suspected she's a bit jinxed, so when she finds herself 35, single, temporarily homeless, and pregnant on a technicality by a gigolo, her fears are confirmed.

Adrenaline junkie and professional stuntman Max Bowen needs a house-sitter to watch after his pets while he's out of town. Annie needs a place to stay. Standard quid pro quo. No biggie. She can handle that, whatever hellhounds he owns. Until Max, the most sought-after bachelor in the county, comes back ahead of schedule and suddenly she's roommates with a 27-year old sex God who turns out to be so much more than what she expected.

Max might have had the attention span of a humming bird on crack when it comes to women, but that was before Annie. Her quirkiness and sweet contradictions soon captivate him, not that she's inclined to give him the time of the day. With his reputation preceding him, he knows the odds are badly stacked against him, but he will do his best to prove her that he's what she needs, stuck-up socialite grandmothers, doomsday preppers, groupies, pregnancy hormones, and repentant biological dads be damned.

To the Max begins with Annie finding out she's pregnant by a "one night stand." She doesn't really know what to do at this point. And add in to the fact she's going to have to stay in a hotel for months while her condo is being worked on.. That is until her friend Max, a hot stuntman, decides to have her pet/house sit his place while he is gone... But things get a little weird when he ends up having to come back early. They soon become roommates, and more intimate friends as well. But while Max is getting his feelings together, Annie is completely trying to ignore it all. She has a whole lot of insecurities about it, especially the age difference, but Max is very hard to ignore... These two must work through their differences quickly in order to reach their happily ever after...

To the Max was a pretty interesting read! I really adored Max. He was a super nice, funny alpha male who wasn't afraid to go after what he wanted. Granted he wasn't perfect, but he was still pretty awesome. Annie, on the other hand, got on my nerves a whole heck of a lot. Especially about the age difference (which wasn't much in my opinion) so that got very frustrating. Then the fact that she kept doubting Max, when she was the one withholding her feelings. Other then that the story was very funny, and enjoyable! I really did like it.
