A larger-than-life firefighter inspires a career-driven woman to live in the moment—and trust in the power of love—in this flirty, emotional novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Searching for Harmony. Finn Ward has two passions: being a firefighter and being single. Although his parents are constantly nagging him to settle down, Finn just wants to enjoy himself while he’s young. Then, at a union meeting, he meets a gorgeous lawyer with a dazzling smile—and suddenly, settling down doesn’t sound so bad. Rory Adams is fresh out of law school and looking to make a name for herself at her mother’s firm. She doesn’t have time for silly games anymore. But when she catches the eye of a dashing fireman who makes her body tingle from across the room, something instantly ignites between them. The only problem? Her father is Finn’s boss. Their relationship turns both of their lives upside-down. Rory tames Finn’s wild ways, while he shows her that life can’t be all work and no play. But it’ll take some serious determination to keep their love secret—and real courage to admit the truth.
Fighting For Love by Kelly Elliott is my favorite book this year. I fell in love with it right from the start. It has that impact moment where it draws you in for more until your locked in with your heart. I couldn’t stop reading it and I couldn’t stop. It felt like I was in the story myself. I was so committed to it. Kelly Elliott has this way about her words and storyline that make you fall in love over and over again. Fighting For Love was the book that you want your life to be like. It makes you want a romance just as perfect as Finn and Rory.
Kelly Elliott gives us this instant romance from the start. I feel the chemistry when these two characters meet for the first time. It is not rushed and I could feel it progressing at the perfect rate. These characters run into problems just like all other romances but can they overcome the fact that Rory’s father is Finn’s boss? Will their love burn fierce even though Rory’s father is determined to stop it?
There isn’t one thing I hated about this book. It was in love with everything. Finn was the perfect book boyfriend and I have declared him mine. He is so sweet and romantic. He is a firefighter and a player at first but once he sets his eyes on Rory it is like no one else exists. This has to be why I loved him so deeply. He had this strength, passion, and persistence that was unbelievable fierce. Finn is the kind of guy every girl wants. Not only did we get the amazing Finn, but we also got Flash. And goodnesss gracious, this book had me laughing so hard. It was full on romance with funny moments that made you giggle nonstop.
Enough about Finn, let me talk about Rory too. This girl was one of my favorite heroines. She knew how to handle Finn and she rocked her career as well. I loved how she unfolded throughout the book. I got all the feels with this book. I felt the love flowing as well as anger and passion. This book gave it all to me.
Finn Ward will now be one of my top book boyfriends. Kelly Elliott wrote the perfect book in Fighting For Love. She did everything right with it. I know that this will now be one of my top Kelly Elliott books ever!
