This should never be allowed to happen to a MMA fighter….

Can you imagine this guy giving fashion advice? On women’s clothing?

Wouldn’t you just love to see how he'd accessorise you.


Well how about this bloke spouting dating tips?

No?
Well that's what we're expected to believe about the hero in Seducing Cinderella.

We all know the story of Cinderella, right? Where poor, plain Cinderella undergoes a transformation courtesy of her Fairy Godmother and snaps up Prince Charming.

Dear Reid,

After I saw your book title I found myself thinking "Seriously?" Don't shoot me now, ok? I'm going to banish my negative thoughts from my brain. See? Done. Now that we're ready to delve into…no, no, I can see your devilish grin already…I don't want to deal with your dirty mind right now…*cough* What did I want to write down actually? I'm babbling and it's entirely your f...more

4 Stars!

Lucie and Reid used to be friends when they were kids. She was the little sister of his best friend, but then she went to college, he went becoming an MMA champion and never saw each other again. Until now.

Now Lucie is a PA and he’s a champion who suffered an injury. Fate decided to put them together as doctor and patient. And everything would be just lovely if she wasn’t in love… with another man. A doctor at the hospital that never looked in her way twice.
So they make a deal: He mo...more

My Goodreads’ Rating: Hmmmm....I have been struggling with how to rate to this book. For the majority of Seducing Cinderella, it was most definitely closer to a 3 star read for me. However, with this being said, I really enjoyed how the author brought in some drama and ended the book. So....4 stars it is!

Our main hero, Mr. Reid Andrews, is an MMA fighter who due to an injury is out of the game for two months. He needs to get back into the swing of things and recuperate for a fight within this ti...more

Fun, hot little read. Looking forward to more from this writer.

As we develop as people, we learn our likes and dislikes. We learn what type of clothing manufacturers work with our bodies. We try on different styles of outfits, take a look and see if we feel like ourselves in the reflection.

Sometimes we get comfortable with a perception of ourselves but that may not be how others see us.
Where we see a non- descript, just an ok figure, others may see the perfect way everything just goes together.

Lucie Miller has been pining after her co-worker, Dr. Stephen Mann for years. He’s gorgeous and is “the picture of confidence” which has women swooning all over him. Just when Lucie thinks he’s finally going to ask her on a date, he shatters her by asking for her best friend’s number to ask her out! As she’s crying her new patient shows up. Little does she know that this is Reid Andrews, her brother’s childhood best friend and current MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) champion. At his prodding, Lucie con...more
Smitten's Book Blog




Very cute, super steamy, corny but lovable, easy read. That just about sums it up I think.

Reid and Lucie are very likable, inoffensive characters and the plot is simple, light on angst and tension, a little predictable but sweet.

The sex scenes were hot!! Seriously hot! Reid is a professional fighter, sexy, hench, yet he has a softer side, is a closet sculptor and a master at seduction... obviously. He would be wouldn't he?!

Lucie is a geeky, chaotic bookworm with a stunning, sensual sex Goddess h...more

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 wit...more
Tough Critic Book Reviews
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...more

"Seducing Cinderella" is book 1 of the Fighting for Love series

How are the sex scenes?

Passionate and memorable with emotion that will make you forget to breathe.

How are the story lines?

Entertaining and character driven. Seducing Cinderella constantly revolves around the hero and heroine's relationship.

Summary

Reid needs full time physical therapy and Lucie needs Dr. Stephen, her sexy co-worker who's romantic intentions are currently towards Lu's uninterested friend. To achieve their goals, they s...more

This book was so fun to read!!! It pretty much pulls you in hook line and sinker from the very beginning. It's steamy, steamy good! Reid is a MAJOR hottie and super smooth. Some of the things that come out of his mouth leave you feeling week in the knees! This book was really sweet and had so many amazing moments in it...I loved it! Can't wait to read more by Gina Maxwell :)
Laura Kaye
Seducing Cinderella was a wonderfully fun, often funny, seriously hot book! Reid and Lucie are both likeable, sympathetic, and well-developed characters with a ton of chemistry between them. I love friends to lovers, brother's best friend and childhood crushes turned adult affairs stories, and this one has it all. Add to that a hero who is seriously molten hot while at the same time having a real sweet side, and Seducing Cinderella was an all-around fun, fast-paced read! Definitely recommend!

So sexy and sweet !!! I loved this story !!! It was so relatable for me !!!

I can't wait to review this one !!

Reid ❤❤ seriously.

~~~~~~~~~~~ 3.5 STARS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This was very sweet. The only hang up I have with this book is an MMA fighter helping a woman with a makeover. Guys in General can express what they like on a woman but picking out a new wardrobe and giving a beautician advice about all the different makeup looks? Unlikely.
Luckily this fantasy spin on an otherwise sweet romance didn't last long! Reid and Lucie were believable as a coupe surprised to fall for each other while hatching out a plan for Lucie to lan...more

“Heart. Any fighter can win against any odds if he has more heart than his opponent.”

This was such a charming little story. Yes, it was highly predictable and it went by way to fast for my taste, but that was just peachy with me. Reid was all kinds of sweet and sexy. Who wouldn’t fall in love a tattooed bad ass UFC fighter with a soft side? And Lucie was just adorable.

Oh, Lucie. She’s a very successful Physical Therapist and loves her job. She loves that feeling of helping others. Luc...more

What a great little read. A huge shout out to my Smut Monday girls for asking me to join them in this read along. I am so glad I agreed. This was a really sweet story. I adore Reid and the sweet things he says to Lucie. They made such an awesome couple and thankfully had their happily ever after. Will be looking forward to reading more from this author.

What a wonderful spin on the Cinderella fairy tale.

description

I hate to give any of the plot away other than to say this was a wonderful "friends to lovers" book. Reid is a MMA fighter recovering from an injury. He's sexy as hell and multi talented. He turns to Lucie, an old friend and physical therapist, to help in his recovery.

Gina Maxwell is a friend of mine, and when I met her she wrote paranormal romance. (She still does, but that's not the point.) Then one day, she sat down to write a contemporary, and bam! she knocked it out of the park! Check out her debut with Entangled's Brazen line if you like humor, great dialogue, hot heroes with a bit a real-world-male edge, and heroines who find their feet and their confidence and start kicking ass. Can't wait for the rest of the installments in Gina's "Fighting for Love"...more

Fairy Godfathers never look so sexy. This was a cute story, with a very, very different twist on Cinderella, minus a few Cinderella characters. The first chapter was very revealing with Lucie, as she isn't your typical attractive woman. She has a crush on her co worker Stephen. And when Lucie felt that big moment approach, as in this is it, he's going to ask me out, I cringed in my seat for Lucie. It didn't go as plan. Then h...more

I thought this book was great! It's my third book about an MMA fighter in a month. Reid, the MMA fighter, is injured and his regular sports med guy has a family emergency. This sends him unwittingly to a physical therapist that happens to be an old friend, Lucie. He wants her to work on him full time, so that he can be back in the ring in two months. Impossible! She has patients that count on her. But he sweetens the pot by offering to give her lessons to make her dream man Dr. Dingleberry fall...more

I'm gonna go with 4.5 stars on this one.

Seducing Cinderella is one HOT little number. It was a quick read that definitely left you *cough* panting in all the right places. Who knew!? Reid finds himself in need of a Physical Therapist and runs smack dab into his childhood best friend's sister, Lucie. In an effort to speed his recovery and help her get the guy of her dreams, they move in together. The chemistry that instantly sparks between the two is incredible. And do I mean incredible! Whew!

I absolutely loved this book, PURE INDULGENCE, a yummy quick read that features a sexy, tattooed bad boy MMA fighter! How could you not….??!!

This story is about Reid and Lucie. I loved both characters. They were really well written. Reid was your typical hard and determined bad boy on the edge however he had this vulnerable side to him too. He was pretty perfect. Lucie was adorably sweet, beautiful and funny yet had the lowest self-esteem possible which affected her daily life.

Their journey beg...more

I would just like to start off by saying, all I want for Christmas is my very own real life Reid. That man defines the word delicious.

Lucie is a physical therapist who is head over heels for a doctor she has worked with for awhile but he just doesn't seem to notice her..Until Reid, who is an MMA fighter, comes to her with an injury he needs worked out before he tries to reclaim his title. He teaches her how to seduce, and in return, she helps him get ready for the big fight...Easy right? Oh so s...more
