Sweet Victory (Fighting for Love #4) by Gina L. Maxwell

The Year is 2019 and this is read number 17! 
I know you didn't ask, but I am telling you anyway. I feel like sharing 🤣

Sweet Victory was GREAT! I am struggling to decide if I like this one better than the first book or not - Seducing Cinderella - Decisions decisions... let's see if writing a review helps me decide hey?
Here is the Blurb:
Sophie Caldwell might not like asking for help, but help is what she needs if she’s going to save her family business from her uncle. Her grandma left one rule for Sophie if she wants to gain sole ownership before she’s thirty—get married. Yeah, fat chance of that happening since she hasn’t had a boyfriend in years, and now she can’t get her uncle off her ass.

British-born MMA fighter Xander James has never lost a fight, and he’s not about to start now. He’s on the brink of a comeback that could make him a UFC champion, but his landlord wants to take away his last chance by shutting down his gym. Hell, no. Fortunately, his landlord’s niece has a problem of her own. Time for a proposal she can’t refuse.

The review: 5 Stars


So... Xander... If perfection had a male name... hehe
I am not usually into the good boys on books and yet this whole series is full of them and I can't get enough. What is up with that Gina? Xander has a heart of gold, no one in their sane mind does what he did for Sophie just because of attraction. I loved his swagger and fun personality as well as his hard working ethic and big heart. And of-course, being sex on a stick helps...

Sophie was a force to be reckoned with. I am half in love with her myself. She works hard, has a sharp mind, and a feisty personality to go with it; she is absolutely perfect for Xander. 
They may have come together in rather unusual circumstances and I confess I wasn't sure to start I was going to like that but Gina made it work. As they get to know each other and the heat between them turns into more you will fall for them too. 

I think my favorite scene was when our boys gave Xander words of advise. It was nice seeing them happy but also recognize where things could have gone wrong for them. Even nicer was to see Xander taking in their words and not just ignoring it. I think he was the most mature of all the boys. 

All in all another fabulous book by Gina, but I think I will still choose Seducing Cinderella over this one just because I liked clumsy shy Lucie a little better than our feisty Sophie. That being said I feel bad doing that because I did love Sophie... aaaahahhhh *screams in despair* 

Anyways... GO READ sunnies!

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

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
