Review: Sweet Victory by Gina L. Maxwell

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

Notes: ARC received via NetGalley.

Erotic Romance, Sports Romance
Digital/Print (251 pages, ENTANGLED)
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.
Each book in the Fighting for Love series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Series Order:
Book #1 Seducing Cinderella
Book #2 Rules of Entanglement

This victory is sweet and oh-so-spicy! (5 stars)


From the moment I cracked open the first book in the Fighting for Love series I've been a fan of Gina L. Maxwell. There is a very small group of authors I consider my auto-buys without reading a blurb and she falls in there with ease. Naturally, that makes SWEET VICTORY a bit of a bittersweet read because it's the final book in the series that put her on my radar. 

Haven't read the whole Fighting for Love series yet? No problem, because this is actually a totally okay place to start. While characters from the rest of the series play roles that are special in SV you don't need to know them all to enjoy it. You'll totally want to go back and read them all though, I actually thought this one was on the sexually tamer side compared to the others. Not in a bad way! As a reader I want every love scene to contribute to the storyline in some way and sweet mama SV was hot without ever feeling gratuitous. 

If you love marriage of convenience stories where the couple find bliss in spite of their differences I think you are going to love Xan and Sophie. I adored them both and totally melted into a sappy puddle of goo at the big dramatic gesture that resolved their big conflict. As the final book in a series it also delivered a few fun bits to treat the fans.

While I'm sad it's over I am so glad to have discovered this fantastic, sexy series and I can't wait to devour the next one Maxwell has coming very soon. Should you still be unconvinced, consider this book a read-it-in-one-sitting treat that's got a great trope, delicious hero, emotional moments, and an ending that'll have you fist pumping. Go on... treat yourself. ;)

About MASTERING HER SENSES (Blasphemy #2, 2/21/17):

12 Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemy…

He wants to dominate her senses—and her heart…

Quinton Ross has always been a thrill-seeker—so it’s no surprise that he’s drawn to extremes in the bedroom and at his BDSM club, Blasphemy, where he creates sense-depriving scenarios that blow submissives’ minds. Now if he could just find one who needs the rush as much as him…

When an accident leaves Cassia Locke with a paralyzing fear of the dark, she’ll try anything to get help. Ready to fight, she knows just who to ask for help—the hard-bodied, funny-as-hell Dom she’d always crushed on—and once stood up.

Quinton is shocked and a little leery to see Cassia, but he can’t pass up the chance to dominate the alluring little sub this time. Introducing her to sensory deprivation becomes his new favorite obsession, and watching her fight fear is its own thrill. But when doubt threatens to send her running again, Quinton must find a way to master her senses—and her heart.

Blog Tour: HIS FAKE ALIEN FIANCEE by Patricia Eimer [Excerpt + Giveaway]


His Fake Alien Fiancee

Out of this World #2 by Patricia Eimer 

Excerpt:


He lifted his head slightly and nudged hers back with his cheek, intending to kiss her forehead. To be tender. To be a friend.

But her lips were there and they looked like strawberries against her green skin and he knew even as her eyes widened and connected with his that this was a bad idea.

He brought his lips down on top of hers and he found that he didn’t care. Didn’t care that she was the princess
of a galactic empire. That his best friend was in love with her sister. That she was green. That they were friends. That he’d promised himself he wasn’t going to get involved with someone he actually cared about.

Didn’t even care that the taste of her lips against his made him feel like he was falling off a cliff and into a serious pile of shit.

They both shifted, moving so they were facing, and he brought his hands up to cradle her face with his left while he wrapped his right around her waist, hoisting her off her own stool and into his lap.

Weekend Reading [02/10-02/12] :: Annnd I'm spent...


As much as I want to do a happy dance that it's Friday I'm actually recovering from a nasty bug and can only manage a tiny seated wiggle. I've been sick for about 3 weeks now and every time I think it's almost gone it comes roaring back. To the point I spent 2 days in bed sleeping. Which I don't do unless I am super sick.

Rumor has it that while we went from subzero temps to coat-free weather in about 36 hours others are getting hammered with snow...? What's it like where you're at? I wish we were in a rainy climate so I could enjoy more rainy days with a book. Snowy days just aren't as good.

This weekend I'm going to still be recouping so I'm hoping to spend a while in bed with my ARC of The Bone Witch which I've been eagerly anticipating for some time now. I actually haven't read any of the author's other work but several of you had good things to say so I bet I'm going to love it.

Since I'm already a bit winded I'm going to cut this short. Would love to hear what you're reading this weekend if you'd take a moment to tell me in the comments. Have a restful, cozy weekend! -- Rhi

Blog Tour: RUTHLESS by Gina L. Maxwell [Excerpt + Giveaway]

Today we have the blog tour for Ruthless by Gina L. Maxwell! Check out this fantastic sexy romance and grab your copy now!



Ruthless_500

About Ruthless:

People call me Ruthless for a reason.

Whether I’m in the court room or in the bedroom, my reputation is well-earned. I’m either working hard, working out, or working my way into some woman's panties. But none of them share my particular kink, and I walk away feeling unsatisfied.

Until I met her.

She’s a friend of a friend, which makes her off-limits in my book. But then temptation had me by the balls and I had her up against a wall. She literally fucked my world off its axis, but it can’t happen again.

My plan was avoidance, but that got blown to shit when my firm hired her as a new junior attorney. Now I’m her boss, and I’m supposed to act like I don’t want to bend her over my desk every five minutes.

But I’ve never held myself back with anything before, so consequences be damned. It’s time to take what I want and show her how damn good it feels...to be ruthless.

Excerpt:



My fingers are clutching his shirt at his lower back like he’s my lifeline. I know if I let go, I’ll fall. Further under his spell, further into the oblivion of pleasure he’s promising with his taboo whispers. So I’m holding on, keeping myself grounded in the moment with the feeling of starched cotton pressed into my palms.
But there’s a voice in my head urging me to let go, and a big part of me—more than I’m willing to admit in this moment—that desperately wants to. I want to fall with this man who’s dominated my fantasies for months. Why not let him dominate me for real, like I’ve imagined at night with my eyes closed and my hand between my legs? All I have to do is be brave enough to trust that he’ll be there to catch me…and let go.

Blog Tour: Island of Exiles by Erica Cameron [Excerpt + Giveaway]




Releases: February 14th, 2017

In Khya’s world, every breath is a battle. On the isolated desert island of Shiara, dying young is inevitable. The clan comes before self, and protecting her home means Khya is a warrior above all else. But when following the clan and obeying their leaders could cost her brother his life, Khya’s home becomes a deadly trap. The only person who can help is Tessen, her lifelong rival and the boy who challenges her at every turn. The council she hoped to join has betrayed her, and their secrets, hundreds of years deep, reach around a world she’s never seen. To save her brother’s life and her island home, her only choice is to trust Tessen, turn against her clan, and go on the run—a betrayal and a death sentence. 


Excerpt:

I breathe the briny air and try to consider the options objectively. As objectively as I ever can when my brother is involved.
Yorri was the first person to tell me that one day I’d be kaigo, just like our blood-parents, serving the Miriseh and earning high honors in Ryogo. I’d flicked him on the shoulder and said “Of course I will be,” but his faith had been what convinced me I was right.
Yorri gets so excited he stumbles over his own words when he’s explaining how he solved some new, impossible puzzle. He devotes himself with frightening fervor to anything that ensnares his arrow-quick mind, but sometimes needs reminding that the rest of the world exists.
Forget objectivity. It’s worth the risk.
I am going to keep him safe, just like I always have.
“You’re going to be late for the vigil if you stand here staring into nothing for much longer, Khya.”
