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 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

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po

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 fiancé 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
