He’ll teach her the art of seduction…for a price.
Mixed martial arts fighter Reid Andrews’s chance to reclaim his title as light heavyweight champ is shattered when he’s injured only months before the rematch. To make sure he’s healed in time, his trainer sends him to recuperate under a professional’s care—Reid’s best friend’s little sister, all grown up.
Disorganized and bookish Lucie Miller needs some professional help of her own. She’d do anything to catch the eye of a doctor she’s crushed on for years, so when Reid offers seduction lessons in exchange for 24/7 conditioning for the biggest fight of his career, Lucie jumps at the chance.
Soon Reid finds himself in the fight of his life…winning Lucie’s heart before she gives it to someone else.
Lucinda Miller is a physical therapist and she’s in her office when Dr. Stephen Mann walks in. Stephen is Director of Sports Medicine and an orthopedic surgeon. And then he makes a major faux pas. And it will have you feeling sorry for Lucie.
Reid Andrews is a man that participates in mixed martial arts. He has a personal injury and has come to see Lucie. And you will also find out, as you read, that they have a history together. Gina gives me a connection to the story by referencing one of my favorite Food Network shows and my dad happens to be a retired physical therapist.
As I was reading Gina’s story, I was thinking more Sleeping Beauty than Cinderella but then as I was reading one particular scene, the title finally clicked into place. As Lucie gets seduced, Gina seduces her readers. We can do no more than to continue to read and see where she takes us.
Reid seems to be the perfect story boyfriend. He has the right amount of expertise, he cares for the feelings of his partner, and the way Lucie describes him he doesn’t look half bad. Now Dr. Mann, he just rubs me the wrong way. I can almost picture him with a mirror that he seems to take everywhere.
Gina reminds us that sometimes what we really want has been right in front of us all along. Cinderella is the butterfly hiding in its chrysalis waiting to get out at just the right time. Once she earns her wings, she is now ready to fly. Gina shows us Lucie’s transformation from beginning to end.
Book two, Rules of Entanglement, is due to come out on November 20th but I couldn’t find out anything about the story. Then I did some digging (I’m a person who never gives up). If you go to her web site, there is a hint listed under “News”. You will need to scroll down in order to find it.
Now I’ll have to wait until November to find out how book two turns out. In the meantime; if you want to be seduced, read about some hot sex, and find out what happens to Lucie pick up a copy of Gina’s book.(Reviewed by Lynn from Romance Reader Enthusiast).
