Get Ready for RUTHLESS!

Are you ready to get to know Roman “Ruthless” Reeves on a very, very intimate level? I sure hope so because book 2 in my Playboys in Love series is about to release on January 30th! And if you thought SHAMELESS was hot, just wait until you read the scorching RUTHLESS.

People call me Ruthless for a reason.

Whether I’m in the court room or in the bedroom, my reputation is well-earned. I’m either working hard, working out, or working my way into some woman’s panties. But none of them share my particular kink, and I walk away feeling unsatisfied.

Until I met her.

She’s a friend of a friend, which makes her off-limits in my book. But then temptation had me by the balls and I had her up against a wall. She literally fucked my world off its axis, but it can’t happen again.

My plan was avoidance, but that got blown to shit when my firm hired her as a new junior attorney. Now I’m her boss, and I’m supposed to act like I don’t want to bend her over my desk every five minutes.

But I’ve never held myself back with anything before, so consequences be damned. It’s time to take what I want and show her how damn good it feels…to be ruthless.


That blurb, as hot as it is, doesn’t even do this story justice. There’s so much naughty in this book, it’s impossible to sum it up in a few short paragraphs. But trust me, you want this book! This is by far my hottest book yet! The wicked Roman and headstrong Addison absolutely combust on the pages.

“What is it you’re afraid of, Addison? The fact that they might watch me fuck you, or the fact that you might like it if they do?”

Buy links are available now so make sure you pre-order it right away so Roman can magically appear on your eReader on January 30th!

But the sale only lasts until January 8th and then it goes back to $3.99 so hurry and grab it while it’s still under a buck.




Okay, my lovelies, that’s it for now. I’ll have more great news about several new releases (a couple of which are coming up really soon!) so make sure you stay informed by getting these posts sent to your inbox (you can click the Follow Me! button on the right), signing up for my occasional newsletters, or you can stalk me on any of my social media accounts. The place where you’ll hear all my news first, though, is in the Maxwell Mob on Facebook, so I highly encourage you to join our ranks over there. 😉

Talk to you soon, but until then, have a happy and safe new year holiday!

Ciao, bellas!

Giveaways & Sneaky-Peekies!

You already get posts from this blog in your inbox, right? (RIGHT?) So what could you possibly need to subscribe to my newsletter for? Well, I’ll tell you…


That’s right. In my (super infrequent, so you won’t have to worry about being bombarded) newsletter, I offer my subscribers things like:

  • Exclusive giveaways!
  • Super long sneak peeks for upcoming releases (I’m sharing the first THREE CHAPTERS of Shameless)!
  • Early reviewer opportunities!
  • A new car!

Okay, definitely not that last one, but the others are totally legit. 😉 Anyhoo, I’m sending out a newsletter tomorrow (May 23rd) with chances to win one of ten (10) $10 gift cards to Amazon/B&N along with the first three (3) chapters of my new erotica, Shameless, which releases in a week on May 30th!

So click here and sign up! 

But don’t unsubscribe from these (also infrequent, because I’m nothing if not consistent in my inconsistency) blog posts, because sometimes I’ll give you information and other cool stuff here rather than go through the hassle of a big newsletter. For instance, because I appreciate you following me here, I’m going to tell you that my publisher is running a giveaway on Goodreads to get a free copy of Shameless, and you can enter for your chance to win here. See? Good stuff all around!

Hope to see you tomorrow in my newsletter! You know, figuratively speaking. 😉

Ciao, bellas!

Paperbacks Now Available!

FIGHTING FOR IRISH, book three in my Fighting for Love series, and TEMPTING HER BEST FRIEND, the first book in the Entangled Publishing What Happens in Vegas series, are FINALLY AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK FORM!

You might notice that they’re almost twice as much in cost as the first two books in my FfL series. This is because my publisher and I have decided to no longer shelve my books in the “bricks and mortar” stores. Unfortunately, it’s a luxury we end up losing money on because of the decline in paperback sales.

But that doesn’t mean that for those of you who still crave that book in your hands, or those who like having a hard copy for signings or collection purposes can’t indulge in a paperback version of my books. It just meant that they’ll be made “to order” and available for purchase online (or whenever I do signing events). And instead of being formatted into the shorter, thicker books like my first two, these will be thinner and taller. This size is called “trade paperback” and most people prefer it, claiming the books are easier to hold and the text easier to read.

So, for those of you who have been pacing the floor in wait for my last two releases to be available in a more tangible form, you need not wait any longer! Thank you for being so understanding and patient (kind of, lol) while we made this transition. In the future, my books will hopefully be available for both formats immediately upon release. *fingers crossed*

With literary love,

Gina ❤


Fighting for Irish, Book Three

He’ll fight for her life. She’ll fight for his love.

Former MMA fighter Aiden “Irish” O’Brien hasn’t stepped into the ring since he accidentally took someone’s life in the heat of rage. When his friend calls in a favor that sends him south to check on family, Irish figures he’s got nothing to lose. His life is on the ropes. The least he can do is make sure the sexy redhead is safe.

Kat MacGregor has forty-eight hours to settle the twenty thousand dollar debt her deadbeat ex-boyfriend owes a crime boss. If she doesn’t, she’ll pay for it-with her life. Kat’s halfway out the door when a sexy new guy walks into the bar and insists he’s there to help.

Irish is forced to fight in the underground MMA circuit to win the money she needs. But he’s been lying to Kat. About who he is, about knowing her sister, about why he comes home bruised every night. She’s the best thing that’s ever happened to him, but breaking her trust will cost him the most important fight of his life: the one for her heart.


Tempting her Best Friend, What Happens in Vegas continuity series

What happens in Vegas, might not stay in Vegas…

Alyssa Miller is tired of waiting for her next-door neighbor to see her as more than just his best friend. Ready to let off some steam, she heads to Las Vegas for a romance book convention where, if she’s lucky, she’ll get down and dirty with one of the sexy cover models.

Dillon Alexander doesn’t do commitment-especially not where his best friend is concerned. She deserves a man who can give her the world, not damaged goods. But when he realizes Alyssa intends to have a one-night stand on her vacation, he hauls ass after her to make sure he’s the one to scratch her itch.

Neither of them expects their explosive chemistry to burn hotter than the lights on the strip, but with a little help from Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, a flamboyant matchmaker, and TSA, what happens in Vegas might not stay in Vegas…


USA Today bestselling book, Fighting for Irish

This trailer is one-of-a-kind in that it was shot live using the cover models for Fighting for Irish, specifically to create this trailer. Becca Manuel of Bibliophile Productions shot the footage and edited the video.

I didn’t make things easy on her. We had limited resources with only a few hours to get everything shot that we needed, not to mention her Texas blood had to function in the negative temperatures of the frozen tundra we call Wisconsin! But even with all that working against her, she still managed to make me an amazing trailer I’m proud to show the world. She’s incredibly talented, and we have lots of plans to work together in the future.

In addition to the “Official” trailer, Becca also created an alternate (fan-made) version that I love, AND put together a hilarious compilation of outtakes from our day filming. Here’s all three videos for your viewing enjoyment. If you love them, I hope you’ll share them with your friends. The boys of the Fighting for Love series want to be on every reader’s shelf and eReader! 😉

The Seducing Cinderella Epic Trailer Reveal & The Parker/Reid World Domination Contest!!!

Raise your hand if you like hunky, hot romance heroes!

Do we have everyone’s attention? Awesome! 

Now raise your hand if you remember the game Where’s Waldo? 

You may be wondering what those two completely different things have in common. Well, from February 26th to March 22nd, The Maxwell Mob – the one and only Romance Mafia for New York Times bestselling author Gina L. Maxwell – invites you to participate in what will no doubt be the sexiest game of Where’s Waldo? to date. 

Seducing Cinderella, the New York Times and USA Todaybestselling novel from Entangled Publishing, hits store shelves on February 26thfor its paperback debut, featuring the one and only Parker Hurley on the cover. Parker, as you may (or may not) know, was the inspiration for MMA star and super-hunk Reid Andrews.  While the world – mainly the Mob – is excited about Parker being on the cover, we began to ponder, where else in the world has this amazing model been? 

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find Parker! The contest rules are simple. The prizes? Sizzling. Let’s show the world that the Maxwell Mob truly does dominate and that Gina L. Maxwell really does bring us Romance that moves you in more ways than one! 

World Domination Contest Rules:

  1. You need to join the Maxwell Mob. Besides being the most awesome Romance group in the history of ever, it’s a great deal of fun, and being a Mobster gives you exclusive access to advance excerpts, interviews, cover reveals, and you get to hang out with Gina. It’s a win/win. You can join on Facebook or on Goodreads – although the Facebook group is more active and it allows for all of the goodies. However, if you don’t have a Facebook account, don’t let that discourage you. If you are a Goodreads user, let us know. We’ll make sure you get the goods as well! 
  2. Have a paperback copy* of Seducing Cinderella.
    *In the interest of global fairness: for those NOT in the U.S. and unable to receive a paperback version of SC before the end of the contest, use a printed copy of the cover image somewhere in the photo in place of the paperback. THEN, attach a picture/screenshot of your paperback purchase/receipt to the email entry along with your entry picture. This makes it fair for everyone!
  3. Now here’s where the fun begins. Find Parker. And you can find him anywhere. Parker Hurley has done cover shoots for nationwide outlets such as Kohl’s and has modeled for companies like Dockers. You can really find this fellow anywhere; he’s even been seen on the back of a city bus. Chances are he may be in your house in a local ad somewhere right now! If you cannot find him in public, then get creative with collages or magazines; print out pictures…anything…so long as it’s moderately tasteful. (We did say moderately.)
  4. Take a picture with Parker and your copy of Seducing Cinderella! We want creativity! Get crazy with it! Some examples could be dressing up in costumes or duping your poor significant other into playing the role of Reid to your Lucie (in things they wore in the book, of course). We stress this part – THE MORE CREATIVE, THE BETTER. You may enter the contest more than once, but make sure it’s with a different theme. Send your awesome pictures to TheMaxwellMob@gmail.comwith the following:
    1. Name
    2. Email
    3. Location (store, etc. + city, state, country)
    4. Blog name you’re representing (only if applicable)
    5. Description (optional)
  5. Contestants may submit their pictures through March 22nd. All pictures will be posted to this public Pinterest board so you can scope out the competition. Mob Officers will select the Top Ten finalists, and Parker Hurley will choose the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. You heard right: the Parker Hurley will be choosing the winners, so make these entries count!
  6. So what do you get if you win? Excellent question. Gina has put together prize packages that we’re sure will tempt anyone to run to the bookstore, pull out a camera, and get clicking.
