fflA 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.

~ 4.5 A Love Worth Fighting For Stars ~

I absolutely loved and adored Finn and Rory’s story. I was completely swept up in their love 🙂

Fighting For Love is the second book in Kelly Elliott’s Boston Love Series. These books are standalone novels with interconnecting characters. With this series I believe it is possible to read these books out of order, but it wouldn’t be my suggestion. We see a lot of Preston and Harmony (from Book 1) in this story, that I think you should read their story first and then continue on with this book. The storylines are different and not continuing but I feel reading this book first would take away from Preston and Harmony’s story.

I think this book is one of Kelly’s longest books to date. Which is a good thing and a bad thing in my opinion. I loved Finn and Rory so much I didn’t want their story to end, but there was a time around the 60%-70% mark that I felt the story fell off track. Kelly had the story going one way and then we lost that until closer to the end of the book. I also felt that there was some things I felt weren’t finished or answered (Rory’s dad and Russell) I was left wondering what happened with these two characters, or I guess I wanted more out of their storyline. I think had some of the filler around the 60-70% mark had been left out, we could’ve gotten all the answers I was hoping for. I know this is confusing and vague but I don’t want to explain it anymore because it could spoil something.

I will say the one thing that took me by complete shock and was so different from a Kelly Elliott book, was who the “villain” was. Usually we see a nasty ex come into play or a jealous hag who won’t take a hint, but in this one I actually disliked Rory’s father to the point that I wanted to hit him!!! I have never disliked a parent in one of Kelly’s books, she usually gives us the parents everyone wishes for, well not in this one. I couldn’t believe how much anger I had towards her dad. He went too far in my opinion!!!!

As I said before this book is about Finn and Rory. Finn is a firefighter and Preston’s (book 1) brother. Rory is an attorney and the daughter of Finn’s Captain at the firehouse. When they first see each other there is an instant attraction and both wanted more. Now their relationship was not without it’s challenges. These two have some serious hills to overcome. Can Finn make Rory see their love is worth fighting for??? How far will Rory let her parents control her life?? Can she finally stand up for herself and go for those things that make her happy??? Read this book to find out those answers.

I enjoyed getting to know Angela (Finn’s sister) and Wes (Finn’s Brother) better in this book. I also liked some of the other characters we were introduced to in this book. Rory’s friends were great!!! I can’t wait to see where she takes this series and what the books to follow will be about.

I would recommend this book to anyone. It had everything you look for in a Kelly Elliott book!!!

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 ‘hotashell 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!”
