FIVE FIGHTING STARS.

description

I'm in brazen book overload and I can't help but love it. Gina L Maxwell has always been a favorite brazen author for my reading tastes, this time around she has completely blown me away by this beautifully written, touching story. This author has more than delivered a treat, and I can't wait for, Gina Maxwell enthusiasts to grab this novel. Readers if you are a fan of this author or even if you haven't been in the past, you must add this to your to be read shelves. Here are my 'Fighting for Irish' book thoughts ...

What's it all about?
Kat MacGregor has a knack for finding herself in less than desirable situations. Running away from her abusive past, Kat now finds herself holding the responsibility of her dead beat ex boyfriends debt. This feisty but broken waitress has always tried to fight her own battles but when a friend who can make more than her pulse best fast steps up to defend her, she has to learn to trust in his security. Aiden 'Irish' O'Brien has moved states to look after his close friends little sister. But when attraction and lust start to play a staring role in this couples connection. Aiden must make the decision to fight for what he loves before he looses his heart. Mystery, romance, danger, love and lust all play a starring role in this next explosive instalment in the 'Fighting for love' series.

What did I love?
This book came as a surprise, I loved seducing Cinderella and rules of entanglement they both gave me what I crave in a romantic story; love, lust and sexy longing wrapped up with great story telling, so when I started Fighting For Irish I expected the same formula, boy meets girl, hot sex, fall in love, rinse and repeat. Well readers I can honestly say my expectations were blown away. This book was so much more than an average easy-going romance, this novel was breath taking, sensual, gripping and heart warming. I'm still in awe of how Gina Maxwell has taken a run of the mill, yet loveable series and launched it onto another level all of it's own. The characters were well thought out, the plot was engaging, suspenseful and endearing and I was fully invested in this love story of healing and attraction. Gina Maxwell tackled subjects of abuse, hardships and attraction with a balanced, sympathetic and sensitive talent. Those that expect an easy brazen fix may be more than a little surprised at the depth and content of this well constructed love story.

Rating further explained ...
For the first 50% of this book I felt conflicted over my rating, simply because this book delivered what I was not expecting; a depth and grittiness that obviously came from the authors labour of love. Once I got over the initial surprise and allowed my self to forget about the Brazen title an the easy to read, sexy nature of this authors past books and focused in on the story that Gina was presenting I was wowed and won over. Bravo Mrs Maxwell, I loved your style.

description

Final thoughts ...
Aiden 'Irish' O'Brien will be a character that you'll be drooling over long after you've finished this story. Those that love Brazen books do not want to miss out on this stand out story. True love and fighting attraction at its best. Don't miss out readers, go grab it. Enjoy ... Kisses.
