This third book in the Maverick Montana Series, Rising Assets by Rebecca Zanetti was absolutely entertaining. Lifelong friend Colton and Melanie see each other after Colton has been gone for awhile. There is no denying the attraction the two friends have for each other, but the two, along with their other best friend Hawk, are a team and a relationship would just mess it all up.
Melanie is having some personal problems after her Grandpa’s passing and she is struggling to handle them on her own. Colton, always ready with a plan, is determined to help her. Along the way, passion ignites, and if the cover doesn’t give you a hint, let me tell you, their chemistry is HOT!!!
Having never read the first two books in the series, I still felt I was able to thoroughly enjoy the story. The people in the town and Colton’s family are all wonderful. Obviously, fans of the first books will be glad to see their favorite couples return. I feel Zanetti does a great job capturing the small town feel.As a fan of books where old friends fall for each other, I was pretty certain I would not be disappointed with this book. The funny aspects such as “the bet” and the sexy scenes, like the one in the car, coupled with the great secondary characters make this book a winner. I really need to go back and read the first books in the series before the next book, hopefully Hawk’s story, comes out.

About the Book:
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?
