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!

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

Yes & I Love You by Roni Loren [ALC review]

It is always nice when a book surprises you. Yes & I Love You was more than the title suggests. Yes, it is certainly a romance novel, but it also deals with things most of us don't think about when talking inclusion in books. The main female character, Hollyn, has tourette syndrome and suffers panic attacks. The disease affected the character's daily life but didn't define who she was. The author, Roni Loren,  holds a master’s degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, and it is clear her experiences helped her here. She represented the illness well and did a great job at demonstrating how anxiety and other daily things we take for granted made things harder for Hollyn.   Hollyn is very successful in her field. She runs a popular blog and her word is the law. If she recommends your business or entertainment it is certain it will be successful. But because of her tourettes she hides behind the screen and no one knows what the popular reviewer &qu
