This was a yummy 3 star read for me.
“Heart. Any fighter can win against any odds if he has more heart than his opponent.”
It was short, predictable and more-than-a-little cheesy, but still, it was cute and had a fuzzy HEA.
Reid is a highly successful, smokin’ hot MMA fighter. He works hard at his job, is dedicated and right now does not have the time to be injured. Which is what leads him to Lucie. Lucie works as a physical therapist. She’s a cute, clumsy bookworm who is utterly infatuated with another doctor at her clinic who won’t give her the time of day and lacks the confidence to do anything about it. With Lucie desperate to go out with her doctor love and Reid desperate for more time around Lucie, he offers to move in with her so that she can give him around the clock physical therapy and he can give her “hands on lesson[s] in Seduction 101” *rolls eyes with a smile* … hmmm… I’m guessing I don’t need to spell out where this all going, riiiight?? 😛
“Maybe the best way to teach you how to seduce,is to let you feel what it’s like to be seduced.”
There are a lot of “picture perfect” things about this book… I mean, its got “Cinderalla” in the title… its a little fairy-tale over the top perfect – cute and clumsy girl meets fuckhot tattoed filty rich bad-boy-with-a-soft-artistic-side fighter… moves in with him instantly… just can’t resist the chemisty etc. But at the same time, if you just approach it as a fun, light read then its pretty cute.
I did really love that Reid wasn’t just pure fighter – he cooked, painted, sculpted etc. He wasn’t afraid to show all his sides and it only added to his hotness! Seriously, I need to find me some more MMA fighter guy books!
“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 sex is hot and there’s a fair bit of it. There were several moments where I wanted to slap or throttle both of them but the ending is all wrapped up in a little bow and there are no surprises or twists to the story.
I liked it, but I found it very easy to put down and I prefer my stories with a little bit more depth. But if you are looking for something light, short, with steam and a HEA, then this is might be the book for you.
3 yummy stars.
