Library JournalIn this second book in Maxwell’s “Fighting for Love” series, District Attorney Vanessa MacGregor is a woman who is so afraid of commitment that she lives by a set of immutable rules that no man could possibly live up to. She needs control but has to learn to let go. Her best friend’s brother, Jackson “Jax” Maris, learns that he needs to find a woman who doesn’t cling to him—in other words, someone who keeps control of herself, at least most of the time. So Jax breaks most of Vanessa’s rules, and only the forced proximity of standing in for his sister and her fiancé making last-minute wedding arrangements keeps them together long enough to get past their initial rocky start. But once Vanessa and Jax decide to play with the time they have, their relationship is hotter than the nearby Hawaiian volcanoes. The only question is whether they can get past the biggest broken rule of all.
Verdict There’s a reason that the “opposites attract” romance is so popular: it generates lots of tension and tons heat! Rules of Entanglement definitely has plenty of both. There’s also a bit of sweetness as this couple explore the reasons behind Vanessa’s reluctance to commit and Jax’s family troubles. Fans will love this steamy summer romance. Double your pleasure and read also the first title in the series, Seducing Cinderella.—Marlene Harris, Seattle P.L.
