Rules of Entanglement, by: Gina L. Maxwell

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.

My thoughts:
Attorney, Vanessa Mac Gregor lives a very structured life. She has rules that she has to follow. The rules are safe. The structure is safe. Vanessa has managed to make it through life without complication with her rules. She has flown to Oahu to be the maid of honor in her best friend Lucy’s wedding.

Jackson is a mixed martial arts fighter who lives on Oahu. He is surfer and laid back islander who exudes bad boy charm. Jackson is used to girls who are drawn to him. His baby sister is getting married and he is supposed to pick up her best friend at the airport. When he meets Vanessa, sparks fly.

Vanessa is not putting up with Jackson and is resistant to his game. He is immediately intrigued and hatches a plan to get to know her better. Vanessa and Jackson end up “faking” an engagement to help make Reid and Lucy’s wedding a success. They have to share a romantic bungalow in a secluded resort for seven days.

When Vanessa and Jackson come together the sparks fly.

This was one of those books where you find yourself rooting for the bad boy and holding your breath. I loved this book. Vanessa was beautifully flawed. Jackson is a romantic at heart and decides to make it his mission to win over Vanessa. The problem is she doesn’t want to be won over and Jackson breaks all of her rules.

About Reading Haven

I am a thirty something wife and mother of two. I read in all of my free time. I can't remember the last time I chose to watch television. I would prefer reading or hanging out online24/7 but one must pay the bills, thus my day job. I like UF but lately have been exploring more erotica and adult romance novels. I love a good Alpha male and I am not afraid of the dark stuff. I like historical romance as well. Sometimes I go for the YA stuff. I'm a sap for a good love story. I prefer a HEA (insert unicorns, rainbows and kittens). Genres I will read: Contemporary Romance and some Historical Romance, Erotica, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult, and Paranormal Romance.
