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.

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to
