Review: Seducing Cinderella by Gina L. Maxwell

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.

If you like it hot and quick then this is the book for you. Seducing Cinderella will entertain, hit you where it counts, and leave you very "satisfied". 

Reid is Lucie's fairy sexmother (he can bibbity bobbity boo me any day). He and Lucie move in together so he can give her lessons on how to seduce her long time crush (insert douche-cough here) in return for her helping him get ready for the fight of his life. A fabulous concept that could have been executed a little better, but hot MMA fighter sex really makes the negatives easy to overlook. 

The dialogue went a little too Harlequin at times (I completely burst out laughing when he called it her honey...OUTLOUD), but then the author would write a line and damn if I didn't get all tingly (and in all the right places).

"Because when I make you come for the first time I don't want you holding back. I want to hear every hitch of your breath, every moan. And I won't be satisfied until you scream my name."

The side stories are a bit random and don't fit well with the plot and the ending goes all teen blockbuster movie which made me almost give this three-stars. I mean the ending was sweet, but knowing Prince Charming has shoe'd Cinderella from the front, the back, and everywhere in between makes the sweet fairy tale ending seem very YA! Definitely gives new meaning to the phrase "some day my prince will come".

All negatives aside, Reid This book won me over. It's a great book to turn to when you're in between reads or when you want something fun, hot and quick! You'll be turned-on entertained to the point where you'll be very forgiving of a few minor flaws. Gina L. Maxwell...I got my eye on you! READ ON!
