Book Review - Fighting for Love by Kelly Elliott

 
 
Book review

Goodreads

 Finn is a player. He's a good-looking firefighter and always gets a lot of attention from women. When he meets Rory at a union meeting he knows straight away that she's more important to him than every other woman he's ever been with. There's one problem though, Rory is his captain's daughter and Finn knows his boss doesn't particularly like him. That doesn't stop Finn from going after the woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with. Will they have a chance together?
 
Rory doesn't have much experience with men. She studied hard and is now a lawyer with a promising career at her mother's law firm. When Rory meets Finn she finally realizes that she never has any fun and that it's time to live a little. However, her father doesn't approve of her choices and she will have to keep their relationship from him, because she's afraid Finn will suffer when he finds out. It works for a while, but they know things can't go on like that forever. Will Rory's father be able to break them up or is Rory's bond with Finn strong enough to survive the pressure?
 
Fighting for Love is a beautiful story about true love. Finn has been with plenty of women, but they never meant anything to him. When he meets Rory he's head over heels in love straight away, which was wonderfully endearing to see. He's kind to her and he showers her with compliments. He makes Rory feel treasured and wanted and that was amazing to read about. Rory is a good girl with plenty of skills and an excellent brain. She's a sweetheart who tries to make everybody happy. She often forgets herself in the process, but being with Finn teaches her who she really is and what she wants in life. They complement one another and are a great match. Their connection is special, they have plenty of chemistry and it's obvious from the beginning that they are soul mates.
 
Kelly Elliott has written a story filled with strong emotions and I loved that about Fighting for Love. She's empathic, but her story never becomes too heavy. I liked her honesty, she describes both the good and the bad side of love. Her characters are believable and the problems they're dealing with are realistic. She writes about family, friends and pets in a fabulous warm and truthful way. Together with the tender, but passionate love story this makes Fighting for Love very complete. I absolutely loved this romantic heartwarming story.
 
Advice
 
If you love reading romantic stories about true love between gorgeous men in uniform and talented, smart women you will definitely like Fighting for Love.

Excerpt

She took another bite of her toast. “But work is for sure not on your mind, Rory. Not with that goofy deer-in-the-headlight look on your face. You’re thinking about a guy.”

My mouth dropped. How in the hell did she know that? “I am not.”

Lifting her brow, she tilted her head and replied, “Really? Look me directly in the eye and tell me you were not thinking about a guy and I’ll treat you to a mani-pedi today.”

“Oh, that sounds like fun! I haven’t done that in a long time.”

“Stop avoiding the question, Rory.”

Taking a bite of my parfait, I asked, “What was the question again?”

With a huge smile, Clare pointed her egg-filled fork at me. “I knew it! I knew it. . . . What’s his name?”

I thought about lying and saying it wasn’t a guy who had my mind so damn preoccupied, or blurting everything out and asking Clare for advice. I was positive it would somehow involve his dick.

“It’s Finn.”

Her mouth formed an O as her eyes widened. “Finn? That sounds sexy as fuck.”

Worrying my lower lip into my mouth, I clamped down on it and nodded. I closed my eyes and sighed. Opening them, I focused on Clare. “Oh, gosh, Clare. He is more than sexy. If you were to look up ‘hot-as-hell guy with the most amazing fit body’ in Webster’s, his picture would be there. He’s funny, has the most adorable smile, and when he’s really happy, his dimples pop out. He has crazy hair that looks like he runs his hand through it all . . . the . . . time. His condo is immaculate. Like you thought I was crazy weird about keeping stuff clean, this guy takes it up a level.” I stopped talking and thought about Finn’s eyes. “Those amazing emerald eyes of his are so easy to get lost in. They way he looks at me sometimes is so seductive I feel like I’m going to combust. And his kiss . . . Good Lord, his kiss left me reeling for hours.”

Clare sat there with her toast frozen at her mouth and stared at me. She dropped it to the plate and let a huge grin take over her face.

“Wow. Please tell me you slept with this guy and that he was the best sex you’ve ever had, ’cause the look on your face right now is almost borderline . . .”

She gasped.

Leaning in closer, I asked, “Borderline what?”

“First tell me, did y’all sleep together?”

I shook my head and took a bite of yogurt. “No. He asked me out to dinner, but I turned him down.”

Gripping the table, Clare shook her head. “Whoa . . . time out. Wait one damn minute. You haven’t even been out on a date with this guy? When did you kiss? You were at his condo? Why? How can you be that head over heels for someone and not have gone on a date?” Pinching the bridge of her nose, she moaned, “I’m so confused.”

She turned and searched for the waiter. “We need two Bloody Marys stat!”
