Blog Tour: Sweet Victory by Gina L. Maxwell (+ Review)



Synopsis:

Sophie Caldwell might not like asking for help, but help is what she needs if she’s going to save her family business from her uncle. Her grandma left one rule for Sophie if she wants to gain sole ownership before she’s thirty—get married. Yeah, fat chance of that happening since she hasn’t had a boyfriend in years, and now she can’t get her uncle off her ass.

British-born MMA fighter Xander James has never lost a fight, and he’s not about to start now. He’s on the brink of a comeback that could make him a UFC champion, but his landlord wants to take away his last chance by shutting down his gym. Hell, no. Fortunately, his landlord’s niece has a problem of her own. Time for a proposal she can’t refuse.

About the Author:

Gina L. Maxwell is a full-time writer, wife, and mother living in the upper Midwest, despite her scathing hatred of snow and cold weather. An avid romance novel addict, she began writing as an alternate way of enjoying the romance stories she loves to read. Her debut novel, Seducing Cinderella, hit both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists in less than four weeks, and she’s been living her newfound dream ever since. 

When she’s not reading or writing steamy romance novels, she spends her time losing at Scrabble (and every other game) to her high school sweetheart, doing her best to hang out with their teenagers before they fly the coop, and dreaming about her move to sunny Florida once they do.

MY REVIEW

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

Sweet Victory was an exceptional sexy romance read. My favorite trope in the whole wide world are marriages of convenience and the one that happens between Sophie and Xander is definitely in my top 5 faves! The love story that Gina created between Sophie and Xander was everything I wanted and needed it to be. It was the perfect blend of sexy and sweet. And I loved that the author really drew out the romance. While it was obvious that these two were attracted to each other from the very beginning, their romance didn't develop too quickly. The romance developed at a slow and steady pace that allowed for the emotional connection between these two to develop and make me as a reader believe that they are in love. But while this book didn't have these two jumping into bed together at the first chance they got, it still was just as steamy as the previous books I have read by this author. And I got to say that Gina really does know how to write a really satisfying sex scene and the ones in this book were some of her best so far. Overall, this book was PERFECT. If you're looking for a steamy, but still emotionally satisfying romance I highly recommend this one.
