Fighting for Irish (Fighting for Love #3) by Gina L. Maxwell

Three books down in 2019 so far, all older releases, and all amazing books!
I love reviewing arcs (and my next read just happens to be one), but there is something special about finding an older book by an author you love. I am really enjoying the Fighting for Love series. It is not what I expected from Gina after reading the Playboys in Love series, but not in a bad way. It is steamy but also sweet, specially this one. Do I prefer it over Playboys in Love? never LOL Roman from Ruthless has me till end of time. But, he does have stiff competition, Irish was fab!

The Blurb:

He'll fight for her life. She'll fight for his love.

Kat MacGregor has forty-eight hours to make good on the debt her ex-boyfriend owes a crime boss. Unfortunately, the measly tips she makes waitressing are barely enough for her to live on, much less cover the twenty-thousand needed to keep her breathing. With time running out, Kat 's forced to accept help from the only man who's ever made her feel fire rather than fear.

When he learns a friend's sister is in trouble, former Boston MMA fighter Aiden "Irish" O'Brien heads to Louisiana to offer himself up as collateral to keep her safe. But to satisfy the debt, he has to do the one thing he swore hed never do again: fight. With more than just money on the line, will Irish have what it takes to not only reclaim the man he once was, but become the man he needs to be for the woman he can't live without?


5 Stars

Fighting for Irish was a sweet and indulgent read. That was not how I felt while I was reading it though. It definitely has some triggers not everyone would feel comfortable with, and since I know at least two of my readers that fall into that category--> please beware this book has scenes with sexual abuse. 
Still though, even with that and all the fighting the feeling I was left with at the end was that of utter contentment and satisfaction. I have no idea how Gina pulled that off -hail to all amazing writers of the world- but the book was equal parts intensity, heat, drama, and pure freaking honey! 🤣 That may not make sense to you, but it does to me... so... just roll with it! 

Kat was a fabulous broken beautiful character. Her demons are soul crashing and it is a miracle the girl is not completely messed up. I loved her fighting spirit.
And Irish... goodness... he was perfection. Understanding and kind while dealing with his own nightmares.
Those two were perfect for each other.
Go Read Sunnies!

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching

The Prince of Broadway (Uptown Girls #2) by Joanna Shupe

Another masterpiece by Jonna Shupe! I loved every second of this book and I am already a third into the next book in the Uptown Girls  series.

Powerful casino owner. Ruthless mastermind. Destroyer of men. He lives in the shadows... As the owner of the city's most exclusive casino, Clayton Madden holds the fortunes of prominent families in the palms of his hands every night. There is one particular family he burns to ruin, however, one that has escaped his grasp... until now. She is society's darling... Florence Greene is no one's fool.
