Rules of Entanglement by Gina L. Maxwell ~ Review
Seven days. And seven rules to break...
District Attorney Vanessa McGregor firmly believes that structure and order are the stuff that dreams are made of. Happiness can be planned - and it starts with seven rules she's laid out for her future. But as she's organizing her best friend's wedding in Hawaii, all of Vanessa's best-laid plans are about to meet their match in a wickedly hot MMA fighter...
Jackson "Jax" Maris is focused on surfing, training and fighting. That is, until he opens up his big mouth, and finds himself having to pretend he's engaged to his little sister's best friend, Vanessa. When they're force to share a romantic bungalow, however, their little charade suddenly takes a turn for the seriously sexy. And while Jax is definitely not part of Vanessa's long-term plan, he has seven days - and seven naughty nights - to turn her seven-rule plan upside down.(less)
I recently just discovered the Fighting for Love series and it has quickly because one of my favorite series, it is definitely the best written series that I've read about fighters so far. 4.5 stars.
This one starts off with Lucie's best friend Vanessa "Nessie" McGregor, landing in Hawaii to help plan the wedding of Lucie's dreams for her because she has been struck with food poisoning and is to ill to travel. We meet Lucie in Seducing Cinderella and she is going to marry Reid Alexander MMA fighter and best friend of her brother Jackson Maris. When Vanessa arrives she is supposed to meet with "Jax" her best friends brother. Well Jax does not make a good first impression showing up late. See, Vanessa's life has not always been perfect, she has created a touch exterior and doesn't let many in....oh and she also has 7 Rules that she lives by and she is not breaking them for anyone.
Jackson "Jax" Maris is Lucie's only brother. After their parents died in an accident, he gave up his life to raise Lucie. Once Lucie was old enough, Jax went to Hawaii, where he trains and fights as an MMA fighter. Jax goes to Hawaii to find answers to things he found out once his parents died, things he didn't even tell Lucie about....so Jax has secrets. When he arrives late to pickup his baby sister's best friend Vanessa up, his world is rocked in ways he can't even possibly begin to imagine, the chemistry between the two is smoldering! Jax tells Vanessa a little lie, Vanessa makes Jax an offer he can't refuse, and then lines are crossed and rules are forgotten but Jax has his work cut out with Vanessa when she finds out the truth...and then Jax throws in his own set of rules at the end and seriously, one of the most swoon-worthy moments in a book ever!
I love how in this series we still get glimpses of old characters while reading about the new. I highly recommend you read this series....it's steamy, sexy, fun, feisty, and has hot MMA fighters....what else does a girl need?
