Rules of Entaglement by Gina Maxwell (Fighting for Love #2)

Book description from

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.

My rating:

3 1/2 stars

My review:

Book 2 in the Fighting for Love series is about Vanessa McGregor, best friend of Lucie from book 1, and Jackson, Lucie’s brother.  There is a wedding to be planned in Hawaii, and the bride is sick with food poisoning, so Vanessa heads out early to plan the details with the help of Jackson.  First, Jackson is late picking her up.  Vanessa (or as he calls her, V) gives him a huge attitude and Jackson is majorly smitten with her.  Second, Jackson lies to her and says they have to impersonate the bride and groom.  Third, he lies to her.  She hates liars.

Vanessa has seven rules she lives by.  Why wasn’t really made clear.  I’m guessing a bad childhood, but the author didn’t really spell it out (or I missed it).  Vanessa was also kind of a bitch, but Jackson made this book readable. I really, really like him a lot.  It wasn’t until about 94% into the book that Vanessa thawed a little, but I still didn’t love her.

Not as good as the first book, but still a good, fast read.

My recommendation:

Read it, but read this series in order.
