Our 4 Star review for Rules of Entanglement by Gina Maxwell

In this corner and standing approximately 5”9, we have the beautiful, smart fiery redhead MS. Vanessa McGregor, known as Red Viper in the court room, and a successful District Attorney. She needs structure, order, control and laid out plans in her life. She believes that happiness will come to her if she follows her seven rules.
Flying out to Hawaii to help her best friend Lucie organize her wedding. Her ride is an hour late picking her up from the airport. When he finally shows, she is annoyed at his laid back, carefree attitude but she also notices how GORGEOUS he is. Jax, MMA fighter and her best friend’s brother. Although dirty thoughts cross her mind, she also reminds herself of rule #7 Never take responsibilities lightly. Aside from being one of the sexiest men she has ever seen, she is unimpressed with him. She takes matters into her own hands and brushes him off.* Ding Ding Ding Round 1 begins*

“I’m just trying to do what I came here for. I apologized for being late and now-“ “No you didn’t,” she blurted out before she could stop herself. “Yes, I did.” “Your exact words were, “To be honest, I was surfing and sort of lost track of time.” “Wow, nothing gets by you, huh? I’ll have to remember that,” he mumbled.

And in this corner, standing at 6’4” tall we have Jackson “Jax” Maris, the Adonis of men, sexy, funny. He loves his life. He trains, he fights and he surfs and he is surrounded by the beauty and peace of the island. Doing a favor for his baby sister Lucie, he offers to pick her best friend Vanessa up from the airport. When he fails to show up on time things get intense. He is absolutely intrigued with this gorgeous spit fire of a red head. He is also curious as to why she lives by her seven rules. Determined to get to know her better he comes up with an idea and finds himself talking her into pretending to be his sister and her fiancĂ© to finish planning the wedding. *insert hunks smirk here- Ding Ding Ding Round two beings*

“Enjoy your last few hours of being in control, V. Because after’re mine.”

Forced to stay in a romantic bungalow and realizing how seriously attracted they are to one another, their little act starts to get serious, seriously HOT.   
Things are going great between them but when Vanessa gets spooked by something he does puts a bit of distance between them. Then a little secret of his is exposed. She is crushed and heartbroken and disappears until she has to see him at the wedding. Mad at herself for not following her rules, Vanessa wants nothing more than to go back home. Jackson realizes for the first time, that he has found someone he loves and doesn’t want to be without. He will do anything and everything to prove himself trust worthy.

God, baby, I am so sorry. I swear I’ll never lie to you again for as long as I live. Just please give me another chance. I love you so goddam much-“

This story was fun, flirty, sexy with some angst and heartache. A great and entertainingly hot read.

Gina Maxwell has a KO with this one! A wonderful job!
