    This book was certainly very different and I would rate it 3.25 stars The heroine was an ex MMA fighter and the alpha in the relationship which I found unusual She has just retired and is about to turn 30 and wants a family and a guy that is miles apart from the one s she met on the road, so she signs up for Spark the dating service of the heroine from the first book.The hero Patrick is working as an electrician a very inept one at the gym she has started work at and was a very, sweet clum This book was certainly very different and I would rate it 3.25 stars The heroine was an ex MMA fighter and the alpha in the relationship which I found unusual She has just retired and is about to turn 30 and wants a family and a guy that is miles apart from the one s she met on the road, so she signs up for Spark the dating service of the heroine from the first book.The hero Patrick is working as an electrician a very inept one at the gym she has started work at and was a very, sweet clumsy guy who was insecure because of his divorce and so willing to put himself on the line even when the heroine made it very clear that she wanted someone financially stable and not him.The heroine didn t work for me many times, she seemed kind of like a user to me though she was upfront about the fact that it was just physical and not something that could work in the long run This book ends on a HFN and not a HEA, with both of them agreeing to give them a shot

    I m all over romance novels and novelists who take romance outside of the heart shaped box Romances that aren t whirlwinds where the MCs rush to the alter before the final page Romances where a monogamous commitment, a let s go steady ring is the gold star It frees the writer up to really focus on issues of modern day relationships.In Driving Her Wild, Steph is an ex cage fighter who hangs up her gloves because her biological clock starts ticking She signs up for Jenna Wilinksi s dating serv I m all over romance novels and novelists who take romance outside of the heart shaped box Romances that aren t whirlwinds where the MCs rush to the alter before the final page Romances where a monogamous commitment, a let s go steady ring is the gold star It frees the writer up to really focus on issues of modern day relationships.In Driving Her Wild, Steph is an ex cage fighter who hangs up her gloves because her biological clock starts ticking She signs up for Jenna Wilinksi s dating service in an effort to find a romantic, working professional, domesticated partner Unfortunately, she keeps bumping into and winding up underneath broke ass, hot ass, sweet ass Patrick Patrick, a recent divorcee who s fallen on hard times thanks to the economy but busts his ass doing whatever menial jobs he can find, wants to be partnered up with someone he could take turns being the strong one with Guh And he s really digging Steph.Patrick sucks at dating not so much because he s broke because he wears his heart on his sleeve and doesn t play games He likes Steph and he tells her so Immediately and repeatedly Steph fights her feelings for this down on his luck dude And its obvious why She s a modern woman who brings home the bacon, fries it up, and slaughters any pig who gets in her face She s an alpha woman looking for a guy who s at the head of the alphabet like her The guys she finds at the top of their game just don t do it for her like Patrick does Other than the financial issues he s perfect for her In the middle of the book she gives an inch and for the rest of the work we readers watch as they negotiate a relationship to both their liking.It was like a Dr Phil or Iyanla Vanzant self help book for the literary minded Educational and satisfying ExceptDominance is a strong sub genre in the romance category Steph, who could financially and physically overpower most men in her life, craved a man to dominate her in the bedroom It makes senseTake me to bed, Patrick Take me Own me Boss me She held too much power over this man She d be happy to surrender some, shed it alongside their clothing.I get that The problem Patrick was not a dominate man He s a pleaser which was lovely But Steph s brain and her inner monologue insisted that he was a Dom It made me feel like she was fooling herself and it took me out of the story during these passages If not for that, this would have been a 5 star read.ARC provided by Netgalley

    I never got into category romances specifically, but holy wow I am realizing I should have been reading the Blaze Line and I guess it is no longer I picked this up based on a JenReadsRomance rec and I m so happy Meg Maguire is also Cara McKenna who I ve been meaning to read and this is just an absolutely delightful, sexy, and fun romance between an ex pro MMA fighter and the big, sexy, clutzy carpenter who is just absolutely bowled over by her prickly charm It is so rare to find a blue co I never got into category romances specifically, but holy wow I am realizing I should have been reading the Blaze Line and I guess it is no longer I picked this up based on a JenReadsRomance rec and I m so happy Meg Maguire is also Cara McKenna who I ve been meaning to read and this is just an absolutely delightful, sexy, and fun romance between an ex pro MMA fighter and the big, sexy, clutzy carpenter who is just absolutely bowled over by her prickly charm It is so rare to find a blue collar romance and this one is extraordinary Both Steph and Patrick struggle financially due not to their lack of hard work, but because of the economy and the nature of their work Patrick having to explain to Steph he couldn t afford fancy dates was so real, and so lovely to see depicted Steph aspiring to date a man who could take care of her was, while a bit cold hearted, also very real I loved how these two came together, and how the book ended on a HFN.PLUS THE CHEMISTRY Wow Off the charts sexy

    3.5 Stars.Sadly, I didn t really like this one. I LOVED the previous one Taking Him Down but here I just felt it wasn t special enough The characters too plain On the last book Rich mentions there is a new person to be joining the boxing club Steph She signed up to be an instructor after deciding to end her boxing carrier Steph will be 30 soon, she has being boxing for years and she feels her age is catching up with her she needs to start thinking about settling down find someone 3.5 Stars.Sadly, I didn t really like this one. I LOVED the previous one Taking Him Down but here I just felt it wasn t special enough The characters too plain On the last book Rich mentions there is a new person to be joining the boxing club Steph She signed up to be an instructor after deciding to end her boxing carrier Steph will be 30 soon, she has being boxing for years and she feels her age is catching up with her she needs to start thinking about settling down find someone that doesn t struggle with his income she had enough financial problems growing up and as a female boxer she didn t earn a lot. someone who isn t like all the other guys she used to date..She joins Spark and really hopes she could find someone with all the things she is interested in. but after a few dates she realizes there is no real attraction there even if the guys meet all her other standards I totally get it She is a boxer, a physical person, someone who comes from a quite poor environment growing up, had a lot of hunks around her other boxers like herself what the hell would she find in common with a geek doctor or a banker It s so un realistic in my eyes it s no wonder she is overly attracted to Patrick the new electrician working on the club She has too many clumsy encounters with him that leads to great attraction but also to the realization he is not what she is looking for he is so similar to the guys she used to date and besides that he had a lot of financial problems due to his recent divorce Patrick is sweet, he really is He is SO into Steph that he is willing to do almost anything to get her, including accepting a convenient relationship which will probably amount to nothing but hey there s sex included so In my eyes there is something very un sexy about a pushy stalkery kind of guy Someone who is SO into you that he keeps hanging around like an eager puppy So sadly that ended my attraction to him. In the end of course Steph finds herself with him after receiving a good advice about why she should give him a chance but actually that advice won t change neither of their financial problems nothing short of a miracle would. it sof he s worth it with his problems I guess it s a good moral to a story but in a romance story I would prefer something a littleMore what I don t know As I said in the beginning the both of them are so plain They don t have real layers or something that draws me into liking them or just wanting to know how they conquer their own difficulties An issue I had that felt personal to me is her rivalry with her cousin I don t want to spoiler what happens there but it was obvious to me from the start that something will I could really relate to Steph and her revulsion from her cousin and exactly because of that I felt the way things resulted were a little weak I wouldn t buy it myself and I see no reason for Steph to..I m a litter older than Steph, my biological clock is still mute and I hope it will stay that way forever I don t like reading about women who feel obliged to change their lives NOW so they could find a guy to marry RIGHT THIS SECOND and start a family in the VERY NEAR future It just seems wrong to me So maybe a lot of my problem with this book is the fact I can t buy the fictional biological pressure some women experience that pushes them to obsess about a house with a white fence, husband and kids. I really enjoy reading Meg Maguire Her writing is fun, fluent and easy to read I liked that we had a littleof Mercer, Rich, Jenna and Lindsey It s nice to see how things changed from the first book and things are good for both businesses I wonder if there is going to be another book in the series I could wildly guess who it will be about and even though this one was a little miss for me I would surely read it

    Driving Her Wild is Meg Maguire s third book set at the Wilinski s Fight Academy a MMA training gym in Boston for Harlequin s Blaze line In this book, Stephanie Healy recently retired from the fighting circuit has come to Wilisnski s Fight Academy as their new jujitsu trainer After years on the road and sick of short term relationships Steph is looking for man who is marriage material She wants a man different from the men she had dated all her life She wants someone sophisticated, successfu Driving Her Wild is Meg Maguire s third book set at the Wilinski s Fight Academy a MMA training gym in Boston for Harlequin s Blaze line In this book, Stephanie Healy recently retired from the fighting circuit has come to Wilisnski s Fight Academy as their new jujitsu trainer After years on the road and sick of short term relationships Steph is looking for man who is marriage material She wants a man different from the men she had dated all her life She wants someone sophisticated, successful and certainly no one like Patrick Doherty, a divorced debt ridden carpenter making ends meet as non quite competent electrician, who is too earnest, clueless and Irish for Steph.What I liked about this book In this series all the men have struggled with their working class identities and whether they are good enough for their love interests They have only a little money in their bank accounts, taken two many blows physical and metaphysical but they have big dreams I love that this equally true of Stephanie and Patrick in this book I loved watching Steph struggle with her inadvisable attraction to Patrick, and Patrick enthusiastic admiration of her I loved how Steph s brothers and father immediately loved Patrick much to Steph s frustration And I enjoyed checking in with Jenna, Mercer, Lindsay and Rich from the previous books, Making Him Sweat and Taking Him Down without them taking over the book.This is not angsty book, Steph and Patrick are good people, a little down on their luck, the obstacles they face are not life threatening, but the emotions, tenderness and frustration they feel are genuine.I normally would have never picked up a bo0k series set in MMA gym I haven t seen a MMA fight in my life, but when I realized that Meg Maguire is Cara McKenna, writer of some my favorite recent reads Unbound and before that After Hours I took the chance and enjoyed these lighter, less angsty but not less emotional reads Publication date October 22, 2013 Digital ARC provided for free by publisher via NetGalley.review originally published

    For this review andvisit my blogI have a new book boyfriend and his name is Patrick I did not expect to come across my new beau in a Harlequin blaze book but I did He was just so damn perfect and was one of the stand out aspects of this book Everything else was great as well I have read the first book in this series so I knew that Meg Maguire could write but this far surpassed Making him Sweat and the reason for that was Patrick.I hate to go on about him but he really was amazing I fo For this review andvisit my blogI have a new book boyfriend and his name is Patrick I did not expect to come across my new beau in a Harlequin blaze book but I did He was just so damn perfect and was one of the stand out aspects of this book Everything else was great as well I have read the first book in this series so I knew that Meg Maguire could write but this far surpassed Making him Sweat and the reason for that was Patrick.I hate to go on about him but he really was amazing I found him really realistic, he wasn t some Adonis leather pant wearing stud and he wasn t some multi millionaire bored sex manic He was a normal guy with money problems and low self esteem He was vulnerable and hurt but he kept a brave face and was determined to defeat the odds He was adorable and incredibly sweet.The other main character is Steph an ex MMA fighter I love the role reversal in this, loved that she was strong and powerful yet still managed to be feminine There were times when she annoyed me slightly, she wanted to find a man but she wanted him to have money, she wanted security This got on my nerves for several reasons Firstly it s really shallow Secondly she should go out and make her own money Thirdly she had fifty grand in the bank which baring an amazing bit of Lotto luck is about 50 times the amount of money I will ever have in my life And finally because this hurts Patricks feelings and that isn t cool with me When she meets the klutzy Patrick there is a ton of chemistry between them andattraction than she has ever felt in her life But she tells him she is not interested in him because he is not financially secure enough for her Frankly that is a kick in the nuts and just a horrible thing to say especially when the guy is so sweet and trying so hard to fix his situation.Thankfully she gets out of this behaviour fairly early on and despite her attempts not to she falls in love with him impossible not to in my opinion The romance was adorable it was sweet and sexy and relatively realistic There was a ton of chemistry between them and the sex scenes were fantastic.I have read two Meg Maguire books now and loved both of them She is creeping up my favourite authors list and I cannot wait to get stuck in toof her writing especially if there aremale characters like Patrick.The publisher provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
