Today is the blog tour stop for Gina L. Maxwell’s Sweet Victory! Grab your copy of this sexy new MMA fighter romance and follow along the tour today!
Sophie Caldwell might not like asking for help, but help is what she needs if she’s going to save her family business from her uncle. Her grandma left one rule for Sophie if she wants to gain sole ownership before she’s thirty—get married. Yeah, fat chance of that happening since she hasn’t had a boyfriend in years, and now she can’t get her uncle off her ass. British-born MMA fighter Xander James has never lost a fight, and he’s not about to start now. He’s on the brink of a comeback that could make him a UFC champion, but his landlord wants to take away his last chance by shutting down his gym. Hell, no. Fortunately, his landlord’s niece has a problem of her own. Time for a proposal she can’t refuse.

I immediately signed up for this tour when I realized I might be able to see Irish again even if only in a cameo appearance.
I got that small gift so I'm extremely happy about that. Aiden "Irish" will always be my favorite hero of Gina's.
Now for Xander and Sophie.
At first I had a hard time with how these two knew each other in passing and very attracted to each other but neither went for it.
I didn't like how Xander also slept around while he was attracted to Sophie. I kept reading anyway and here's why.
I didn't have to read anything like that in this story. Their relationship as unconventional as it was began right away. Xander never wavered and he gave her all of him. That's what I need in my heroes and he was amazing.
I loved their banter and really enjoyed he sizzling chemistry. So many emotional moments especially with her Grams. I teared up a lot and the epilogue really warmed my heart.
This would have been ten stars if Xander hadn't have behaved like he did and went after Sophie right away. Do women ask the authors to add this disgusting behavior?
I honestly would never say hey..he needs to sleep around since he's so attracted to her..that's so romantic.. nope not at all. Let him go after her..or just not be interested in meaningless sex after he meets the heroine who is supposed to be it for him. (hide spoiler)]
Gina L. Maxwell is a full-time writer, wife, and mother living in the upper Midwest, despite her scathing hatred of snow and cold weather. An avid romance novel addict, she began writing as an alternate way of enjoying the romance stories she loves to read. Her debut novel, Seducing Cinderella, hit both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists in less than four weeks, and she’s been living her newfound dream ever since. When she’s not reading or writing steamy romance novels, she spends her time losing at Scrabble (and every other game) to her high school sweetheart, doing her best to hang out with their teenagers before they fly the coop, and dreaming about her move to sunny Florida once they do.
