Seven days. And seven rules to break…
In this romance novel from Gina L. Maxwell, District Attorney Vanessa MacGregor firmly believes that structure and order are the stuff that dreams are made of. Happiness can be planned—and it starts with the seven rules she’s laid out for her future. But as she’s organizing her best friend’s wedding in Hawaii, all of Vanessa’s best-laid plans are about to meet their match in a wickedly hot MMA fighter…
Jackson "Jax" Maris is focused on surfing, training, and fighting. That is, until he opens up his big mouth and finds himself having to pretend he’s engaged to his little sister’s best friend, Vanessa. When they’re forced to share a romantic bungalow, however, their little charade suddenly takes a turn for the seriously sexy. And while Jax is definitely not part of Vanessa’s long-term plan, he has seven days—and seven naughty nights—to turn her seven-rule plan upside down.
Totally delightful! Best selling author Gina L. Maxwell has another hit! A sumptuous feast of sensual romance with a delicious story and captivating characters that melt your heart and make you squirm in your seat. Combining wit and heat to wind this reader around her little finger, Ms. Maxwell kept me reading from the moment I picked this one up until bleary-eyed, I finished it at three the next morning.
Sizzling hot love scenes, stunningly drawn Hawaiian panoramas, and a consummate knowledge of her subject matter makes this offering a special treat. Ms. Maxwell brings her story to life with a charming, feisty heroine and a hard as nails, totally alpha hero and had me turning pages madly, then going back to re-read the “good” parts. A definite winner.
