This is a big day for us because one of our own has her first book out and we are going to spend two days celebrating. When I first started this blog I would write stupid shit and would post it and wait to see if anyone would comment but no one ever did. Then I started to get a few comments and one of them was Gina Leigh Maxwell. She started commenting everyday and always had something funny to say. She was one of the original BBL’s and still is.
She quickly became my friend and asked if I wanted to read a book she wrote. I said yes and she sent it. I read it with my wife and we were stunned by how good it was and I knew right then that eventually she was going to make it. Shortly after that she was offered a book deal and now she is officially a published author and that is a big deal. When she first got the contract I wrote about it on the blog and all of us were so happy for her and could not wait for her first book to come out. I thought it would be the book I had read but it wasn’t because she was asked to write another book first and she did. It is titled Seducing Cinderella and this is my honest review.
Reid is a professional fighter in Mixed Martial Arts. When he is injured his coach insists he goes for physical therapy. Begrudgingly he goes and his therapist turns out to be his best friend’s little sister Lucie who he hasn’t seen in years. He enters the office with her in tears and through his first examination finds out Lucie is interested in the doctor in her hospital who has taken no notice of her.
Reid’s mind starts whirling as he has two months to heal if he wants to maintain his belt for the title fight. Reid sees that Lucie needs help in the clothing and make up department. Being a playboy himself, he knows what turns men on and devises a plan that would help them both.
Reid agrees to give Lucie advice and training on how to get the Dr. to notice her if she agrees to help him get ready for the title fight of his life. For him to get the intense therapy that is needed, they agree to live together as she gives him around the clock therapy and he in turn will transform her from the mousy therapist to the beautiful and sexy Cinderella.
The story is fun and captivating, the characters are heart warming and realistic. The sex scenes are great. I will look at hard candy differently from now on. If you want a story that is light and fun, this one is for you.
I would have given this book an A but I have two problems with it. First, the hero has a secret desire to be a fucking sculptor and if you remember my review of Ruthie’s book you know how I feel about that. What is it with women and artists? Second, she named a fucking diabetic ferret after me. No shit a fucking ferret.
In all seriousness this book is very good and we are all very happy and proud of you Gina. Nothing makes me happier than to see a friend succeed when they deserve it and you deserve it. To celebrate we are giving away ten books to people who comment, five today and five tomorrow.
