Seducing Cinderella (Fighting for Love #1) by Gina L. Maxwell

Today we are stepping back in time a little and reviewing an older book; Seducing Cinderella by Gina Maxwell was published back in 2012. I only discovered this amazing author at the beginning of this year (her book Merciless was published this past May and I somehow got it). That means I am still discovering her stuff. Seducing Cinderella was ADORABLE! I already ordered the next books in the series on amazon. Gimme Gimme Gimme!
The Blurb:

He'll teach her the art of seduction... for a price.

Mixed martial arts fighter Reid Andrews’s chance to reclaim his title as light heavyweight champ is shattered when he’s injured only months before the rematch. To make sure he’s healed in time, his trainer sends him to recuperate under a professional’s care—Reid’s best friend’s little sister, all grown up.

Disorganized and bookish Lucie Miller needs some professional help of her own. She’d do anything to catch the eye of a doctor she’s crushed on for years, so when Reid offers seduction lessons in exchange for 24/7 conditioning for the biggest fight of his career, Lucie jumps at the chance.

Soon Reid finds himself in the fight of his life... winning Lucie's heart before she gives it to someone else.
 


5 Glorious Stars


Seducing Cinderella was one of the sweetest books I've read in a while. I was captivated by all the characters from the very beginning. It had charm, it was funny, sexy, emotional... All the wonderful things you would hope to find on a good contemporary romance. 

Reid Andrews is above and beyond captivating. It is impossible not fall in love for his bad boy charm and unstoppable swagger. And as we got to know him it is also impossible not to fall for the guy underneath all the tattoos and fighter stance. 
He is a MMA fighter and needs to heal from a shoulder injury in order to reclaim his title, but with only a few months to go he needs to do it fast. Our lovely Lucie is the physical therapist he is sent to.
She is everything he is not- shy, lacks self confidence, clumsy, messy...
Reid soon figures out that she is everything he needs. The problem? They exchanged services: she will help him heal while he will teach her the art of seduction so that she can get the doctor she has  feelings for.

The chemistry between them was off the freaking charts! With Reid's help Lucie's character grows and changes  a lot through the story, it was sweet to 'watch' her grow more comfortable on her own skin, and it was insanely hot to 'watch' Reid be the one helping her see herself in a different light. Reid showed her and taught her her real worth, making it impossible for Lucie to even look at another man without comparing him with the perfection that was Reid.

Seducing Cinderella was an unforgettable story! Once I was done I wanted more, so much more... and Gina L Maxwell pointed me into the right direction. So once you are done reading this - because you hate to - go check out Gina's Extras on her site. There are two bonus scenes for Seducing Cinderella and they are super sweet.
