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!

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
