He’s in for the fight of his life…

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.

You know it's weird. Sometimes certain situations will annoy the hell out of me in stories and at other times they won't even register on my radar. This is one of those times where I was turned off by the way the author presented the hero. First, we have a heroine that has watched OW coming and goin ...more

God, had any woman ever tasted so good, felt so perfect, so soft and strong and absofuckinglutely amazing? No way. At least none that he’d had. Sophie Caldwell left them so far in her dust that new rating systems would have to be invented. One through ten was a joke.

It's hard to b ...more

By Geri Reads March 10, 2017

As far as category romances goes, Sweet Victory is on par with most of the books from Brazen. It's hot and steamy with great banter to boot. I have to admit though that I almost DNF'd this one.

The reason? It's so shallow really but I am so over heroines with green, pink or whatever color hair. Like ...more

Another winner from Gina.

I was excited to read this from the blurb and because it's Gina.

And I loved it.

Sophie was unique, and a spit fire. I loved her right away, and Xander was Sweet and very protective. Cue the swooning.

I sure wish I was actually there eating all of Sophie's yummy treats.

Ahhh, a hot MMA fighter who offers to marry the hot baker so she can save her bakery. What does that give you? A fake to real romance story and that's my favorite kind!

I loved Xander. He was sweetness funny and romantic. Watching him fall in love with Sophie was amazing. The scene where he met Soph ...more

Seems like I have been waiting FOREVER for Xander's story! So happy to see him again and Gina does not disappoint with this one. Holy hotness! MMA fighter, great sense of humor and so very alpha male. Ummm, yeah, did I mention he has a British accent. Xander is the last of his MMA friends to find hi ...more

This is the second of Gina L. Maxwell's Fighting for Love books I've read, and it's very good. The main characters are fun and real, and the subplot with Sophie's grandmother forgetting her due to dementia is heartbreakingly true and authentic. Admittedly, the rest of the book was rather trope-y (I ...more

I'm seriously possibly without words. It seems I've been waiting for years for this story, and in a way I guess I have. Bear with me this review has a backstory.

I read Seducing Cinderella (#1 in this series) way back in 2013, and absolutely fell in love with Gina Maxwell's writing and storytelling. ...more

Whenever I read (and review) any of Gina’s books there’s always that underlying anxiety, that worry, that my words won’t be able to do her writing - and what they made me feel as I was reading - justice. But as soon as I sit down to read her books the words just start pop in to my head, clamouring ...more

I have been wanting Xander's story since he first appeared in this series. And now that I have read it, all I can say is, "Noooooo!". I am not ready for this series to be done.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book

It was fast paced and funny and sweet and a little bit of everything. Not to mention the sexucal chemistry between Sophie and Xander
