This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
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.
Each book in the Fighting for Love series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Book #1 Seducing Cinderella
Book #2 Rules of Entanglement
Book #3 Fighting For Irish
Book #4 Sweet Victory
Ms. Maxwell's first book Seducing Cinderella was a skyrocket straight to best seller. I have a feeling her second, Rules of Entanglement, will follow it's path. Lucie and Reid are the amazing couple introduced to us in her first book. We had glimpses of Jackson, Lucie's very protective brother, and some great girl time with Vanessa MacGregor , Lucie's best friend. Now we meet Vanessa and Jackson up close and personal.
The wedding of Lucie's dreams is being held at an exclusive hotel resort in Hawaii. Jax is an MMA fighter living there for the last several years, and with his " connections" they were able to reserve this amazing venue. Vanessa and Jax's first meeting is NOT a fortuitous one. He arrives an hour late with the excuse that he was surfing and lost track of the time. Vanessa thrives on rules, and has in fact a "Lucky Seven" she lives by. Jax has already broken rule #7.....Never take your responsibilities lightly. This novel is a classic example of opposites attract. Jax had to raise his little sister after his parents died unexpectedly and lived by the rules to keep her life safe and secure. When she went to college he moved to Hawaii, and fights, trains and surfs. No rules. Nessie having grown up in a dysfunctional home with her little sister, now needs the rules to keep her life on track.
Jax and Nessie have secrets they share with each other that draw them closer, and one giant secret Jax is keeping that may tear them apart. This novel has everything, laughter, very hot sex , conflict and a beautiful love story. This anxiously awaited second book in the Fighting For Love series, was definitely worth waiting for. It can be read as a stand alone, but the first in the series is such a joy to read I would recommend reading it to appreciate Lucie and Reid's road to their happily ever after.
I received this ARC from the publisher for an honest review. No compensation was offered nor accepted.
Must read book!!
I happen to be a very lucky person and was selected to receive a ARC copy of this book. I was very excited to get this opportunity and have been looking forward to reading this after reading Seducing Cinderella. I will have to say this book is better than the first. Jackson and Nessie's charters are so well written it makes you feel as if you are living the story and trust me you want to be Nessie when you get a chance to be with the HOT Jackson Maris. You will not be disappointed that you bought this book to read it is well worth the money!
I just can't put my finger on it, but there was a little something missing for me in this book. Don't get me wrong, it was a very good book. But in my opinion, Seducing Cinderella was the better book so far in this series. I could not put SC down, but with Rules of Entanglement, I could. I liked every scene in the book, but it just didn't seem to pull me in like SC did. I was actually expecting Jax to be my favorite character, but he just didn't quite get there for me. I definitely recommend reading this book and I can't wait for the next book of the series to come out, but so far Reid is still my favorite hero.
