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
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Boston is a city I haven't been to yet, and this book has made my travel bug itchy, especially if I came across a firefighter like Finn! He has a lot of qualities we all love in our BBFs, loyalty and trust being right up there. He is someone you can depend upon and trust your life with. He even loves dogs! It is going to take one special woman to curve his player ways, and he feels that Rory is that woman, if only he could get a date with her.
Rory, is a lawyer working for her mother's firm, trying to make a name for herself and not coast on her mother's laurels. This takes a lot of hard work and long hours, and relationships will have to be put on the back burner. That is until she sees Finn at a Union meeting, and is smitten with him from the very start. Except with work and the long standing agreement she has with her firefighter Captain dad, that she never dates a fireman, this just can't work, unless......
I enjoyed reading this book, even though it was a bit repetitive and drawn out. Rory's character was naive and inexperienced due to her parents being controlling, but she also grated on me a little. There were also some story line discrepancies that annoyed me, like the lead council of the case Rory was working on. His harassment behaviour when working on a harassment case was ironic. I do believe the secondary characters brought this book a more pleasurable read. If you enjoy family sagas, then you will like this series.
