This was another one of those stay up all night books. I feel in love with the witty humor between Jax and Vanessa. It also helped that the book to place on my little old Oahu. Its always nice to read a GREAT book that takes place where you live. This was a fantastic sequel in the Fighting For Love series. It kept you reading start to finish and indeed threw some nice curve balls with the story. Not only do you get the great plot, but you really get to know the characters you are reading about.
I found Vanessa character just captivating. She was a very entertaining and yet original character. She had her Rules and she was going to live by them. It was very interesting to find out her rules and where they originated form. I felt like getting to know this side of the witty, sarcastic, smart, empowered woman, made her all that more special. Gina Maxwell can introduce a character like no other. By the end of the book you feel like they are your best friends. Not only do you travel the book right there with them, but you get to know their deepest darkest secrets.
The same goes for Jax. He was quite a treat to get to know. Tattoos, amazing body, and to top it? The most perfect personality. I honestly thought the whole situation was perfect and without it things in the book would have gone very differently. He plays her rules like they are guidelines to break. Its quite a show to watch. On the other hand though, you really get to see the soft and compassionate side of Jax and that just makes you fall head over. Sometimes he may be infuriating, but he is also passionate and devoted to what he loves.
This story was cativating. It may not have been your typical boy meets girl scenario but it was one for you top shelf. Its hilarious, romantic, exciting, and even sad at some points. It goes full realm with you diving into this situation and you don't miss a thing. The plot is wonderful and the characters are even better. I have absolutely no complaints or things I didn't like for this book (not that I was looking for any as I LOVED it!). It was a great read and I couldn't bear to not finish in one sitting. I look forward to what comes next form Gina Maxwell in the Fighting For Love series.
Seven days. And seven rules to break...
District Attorney Vanessa McGregor firmly believes that structure and order are the stuff that dreams are made of. Happiness can be planned - and it starts with 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 force 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.
