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 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
