Review - Seducing Cinderella (Fighting for Love #1) - Gina L. Maxwell

A Review by Wendy

Seducing Cinderella (Fighting for Love #1) 

****4 Tried and True, Steam Inducing, Feverish Stars****

As we develop as people, we learn our likes and dislikes. We learn what type of clothing manufacturers work with our bodies. We try on different styles of outfits, take a look and see if we feel like ourselves in the reflection.

Sometimes we get comfortable with a perception of ourselves but that may not be how others see us.
Where we see a non- descript, just an ok figure, others may see the perfect way everything just goes together.
Where we see ourselves as never being the knock out or attention getter, others may see the subtle flair which sneaks up on you beauty…. A kind that over takes any blatant display from others ….
And where we see the embarrassing, awkward movements and brain freezes, others may just love the purity of who you are… and the biggest question is.... can we as who we have always seen ourselves, shift and see from another angle, another perspective to see what others may see in us?

This question plays out not from just from Lucie Miller’s experiences but also in a more internal way for Reid Andersen, our couple in Seducing Cinderella. This had all of the moments we would expect… friends to lovers...revealing the diamond in the rough... and insight to both of their insecurities and fears.

And for me… that was the real beauty of this tale. You actually got a twofer… yup, two people who saw themselves one way and by the end of the tale… both were able to see all that they were through the eyes of the other.

This also had the beauty of comfort for me… because I knew from the start how much I was going to enjoy this book. There is nothing better than when you know what you want… seek out the source of how you can get it… and then have it delivered to you, happily.

The Entangled/ Brazen group has become that “go to” for me. When I want to feel the excitement of two people connecting, learning that something is percolating, bubbling and about to surface; when the talk gets intimate, sensuous and downright dirty…. I know I will be satisfied by this brand.

What I also know is there will be some substance to the journey besides hot, sweaty, wish fulfillment sex.
Because what makes the sex so good… so real and oh, so gratifying is the substance in all of these stories. There is always some type of recognition…. Some way the characters accept or understand that loving the person they desire is ok and right. That whatever obstacles they thought were real… they could see their way clear and make the “right” choice in the end and be with the person they loved.

So if you are like me and love to see people come together, have that juice flow and feel how excited they are to just be standing next to each other…. to almost think those words he is whispering in her ear while he is dragging his fingers up her bare arm are being said to you…. Then this book and brand is for you.

I know I am off to meet Jase, Lucie’s brother…. And see if he makes me feel that tingle too….
