Blind Date with a Book Event with Gina L. Maxwell

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.

Okay, BLIND DATE TIME. I scrolled through my super extensive Kindle library trying to find the perfect book for you guys. I wanted to make sure it's a book I totally love and think more people need to read. I had lots of books I'd marked as maybes, but when I saw this one, I knew it was the one. I've re-read this several times and it's one I know I'll always come back to every so often because I love it that much. Ready? Here are your clues:

★ Set in Boston
★ Hero is an underground MMA fighter with a sexy-as-hell Boston accent (No, this isn't my book FIGHTING FOR IRISH, I promise.)
★ Hero calls the heroine Sub Shop Girl
★ This author is one of two whom I think writes THE BEST man's man, gritty urban heroes. The way they speak--or don't speak--is utter male perfection. Also, her writing in general is absolutely spectacular, 5-stars every time.
★ The sex in this book--which is super freaking hot!--is considered really taboo. (Bonus Hint: it's also the same taboo sex that's in my upcoming release, MERCILESS.)
★ This book was originally published in 2010 then spruced up, recovered, and re-published in 2016 with the addition of a new sequel.
★ The author also writes under a different name for her more mainstream romances, whereas this pen name writes the edgier, hotter stuff. Both last names are Scottish.

Okay, that's all you're getting! Do you know what it is? I feel like I totally gave it away with those hints, but that's probably just because I know the answer. LOL

At any rate, I hope you'll check out my upcoming release, MERCILESS, book 3 in the Playboys in Love series which is releasing on May 7th. I'm so excited about this book, which is why I'm putting up an ARC to one lucky reader for my daily giveaway. Eep!

Alright, party people, time to guess my Blind Date Book. Annnnnnnnnd...GO!

I’m not always the hero. Sometimes I’m merciless.

My whole life I've been the good guy—loyal friend, helpful son, dedicated firefighter—but in the bedroom I'm someone else. That’s where my inner villain likes to come out and play.

With a kink as taboo as mine, it’s too risky to play with anyone who doesn’t crave it like I do, so I’ve gotten used to depriving that side of me.

Then I see HER. She’s the most beautiful creature I’ve ever seen and my darker half recognizes itself in her mysterious brown eyes. She’s everything I could ever want and thought I would never find.

Our arrangement may seem twisted to everyone else, but the sex is explosive—and soon my soul is demanding to own every part of her. We come from different worlds that want to tear us apart, but I won’t give up on our future.

For her, I will fight. And I will be…MERCILESS.
