Review: Seducing Cinderella by Gina L. Maxwell

Seducing Cinderella (Fighting for Love #1)
by Gina L. Maxwell

Blurb by Goodreads

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 him himself in the fight of his life...winning Lucie's heart before she gives it to someone else.

Sensual cover with a delicious tattoo MMA fighter sold. I had Seducing Cinderella in my kindle for some time, wow can not believe it took me so long to read it.
Reid stole my heart. His character is fun, playful and has a sense of humor. Reid and Lucie make an agreement. He teaches her how to seduce and in return she gets him back in shape for his next big fight. While he is teaching her some seducing methods he is finding it hard to keep his hands off her. Two things keeps him from having a relationship with her. One she is his best friends little sister. Love this genre. Two he is not the marrying type. His Dad was a fighter back in the day, when his mom left him and his Dad because of this life style, his dad became bitter against love and a drunk. He did not know how to raise a child so he only taught him what he knew and that was fighting.
Lucie had a bad relationship in the past and she vowed to only find some one who is compatible with her. She believes now, capability first then love will follow. Her co-worker is the perfect match. There is only one problem he will not give her the time a day. She needs Reid to teach her to seduce him.
The sexual tension between Reid and Lucie is hot from the beginning. It left me hot and bothered. The seducing leads to some steamy scenes in the bedroom. Reid is finding it harder everyday to keep his hands off her and they take the seduction to friends with benefits per say. Reid is a dirty talking hero who for sure knows how to use that sexy mouth of his in and out of the bedroom. Sex scenes are steamy and will need a cold shower after. Loved how they were already friends before and basically grew up together. Loved how they did not start a relationship right away. While he is teaching her on how to seduce and her getting him back in shape their friendship grows to something more. Love how they act like a couple with out even realizing it. Going to dinner, watching movies etc. Their relationship is not always perfect and tend to have a few bumps in the road. But that what makes it great. Their chemistry is perfect and real.
Seducing Cinderella is my first read by Gina L. Maxwell and instantly became a fan. Seducing Cinderella is a feel good novel that had me smiling well after it ended.

  3. Sounds very nice, thanks for the review !

  4. So with ya on that. I love the theme of a best friend's sibling. There's just something about that shared bond/past together that makes it more entertaining. Or naughty. Hmm. Not sure but it totally works for me :)

  5. I like the bond/past together with best friends siblings but it has to be written right. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and see my thoughts.
