Friends with benefits was never the plan…
Melanie Jacobs is in trouble. With three jobs—including running her ranch—and dwindling funds, she’s exhausted. Not to mention desperately trying to hide a secret. Unfortunately, her best friend Colton Freeze knows all too well that’s something is going on, and he won’t give up until he knows exactly what he needs to fix.
Then Colton learns the truth—that Melanie’s future happiness rests in the fickle hands of fate, and her chances for having a family are shrinking with every passing day. Her only comfort is Colton, but when a heated argument between them turns into an even hotter kiss, the boundaries of their friendship are erased, leaving only a scorching-hot hunger for more.
Every kiss—every touch—is a stolen pleasure. But will their new friends-with-sexy-benefits arrangement bring them closer together, or destroy everything they once shared?
FOUR COWBOY STARS.

4 Sweet and Sexy Cowboy Stars
Friends with benefits was never the plan...
I read Rising Assets immediately after a really depressing and frustrating read, thinking that I needed something hot, fun, and passionate with very little drama or angst to get me back into a decent mood. Rising Assets was that and much more being one of my favorite types of romance: friends-to-... ...more

HAPPY RELEASE DAY!
I was shocked to discover that I haven't read the first books in this series. I've been caught up reading Ms. Zanetti's paranormal books. That didn't stop me from really enjoying Rising Assets. It takes skill to get a new reader caught up on the world that you're writing about,... ...more

Rising Assets Book #3 of Maverick Montana Series Rebecca Zanetti
Wow this series only gets better. Didn’t think it possible. I love Rebecca Zanetti’s writing and we waited a long time for our Maverick Montana fix to be sated. Let me tell you the wait was so worth it.... ...more
Yes, this is number 3, but this is the first book I've read in this series and I really liked it. It definitely works as a stand alone. I didn't feel like I missed out on anything by not having read the other two first. And it's a friends to lovers trope which hands-down is my favorite.... ...more
It’s official. I want to live in Montana. Because these men put the Mmmm in the place. Rebecca Zanetti doesn’t disappoint with her third book in the Maverick Montana series. If you were partial to a bit of fun with Jake Against the Wall and found your happy place Under the Covers with Quinn, then... ...more
It has to be said that colton and Mel are my fav characters so far!!
Mel was beautiful stubborn fiesty and proud. Even though she was going through a really ruff time emotionally and financially she didn't ask for help, instead she tried to carry on making the best of the situation she was in!

This is the 3rd book in the Maverick Montana series, and stars the hunky bean counter, Colton Freeze. He is the half brother of Jake and Quinn Lodge, who appeared in the first 2 books of this series.
This is a friends to lover... ...more
Once I picked this book up I couldn't put it down. That means I had to finish that "one more chapter" before lights out.
If you haven't read the first two books, Against the Wall and Under the Covers, you should really read them first. This is the third book in the series as with the other two bo... ...more

This was a pretty good story. I liked Melanie and Colton and while their story wasn't perfect, it was engaging and I did enjoy it.

It is the mark of a truly great Brazen book that you can’t help but wish every side character is a prospective future protagonist. Having a large family or group of friends isn’t always enough, as I discovered with Rebecca Zanetti’s Maverick Montana series, which is currently on its third install... ...more
