Raised in the streets, Knox is a battle-worn MMA fighter with no past, present, or future. Fighting every day just to survive, Knox owns nothing but the pride in his victories and the scars on his hands. When his control snaps and he must flee the city to keep his life, he runs into a stunning woman with the same intent. All big eyes and delicate features, she's not cut out to survive on her own. And when finding her own inner strength leads to a shocking act of violence, Knox knows he must protect her at all costs...

Natalie couldn't spend another day under her father's lock and key. Raised to be the perfect picture of wealth and sophistication, she detests the dark, ugly side of her father's greed. Refusing to be held captive by her life a moment longer, she escapes his fortress - and runs right into the arms of the strongest, most dangerous, most desirable man she's ever met. As instant attraction leads to explosive passion, Natalie finds she cannot leave his side. But as their pursuers loom closer and threaten to tear them apart, Natalie and Knox have to decide: is it easier to stand apart? Or is a love this strong worth the fight?

Kassiah: I don’t know why, but I am kinda obsessed with books featuring fighters. Some of them are my faves. Some of them have been misses, but I’m glad I picked up Fight for Me by Jessica Linden.

Knox and Natalie literally run into each other when they’re both on the run–her from her overbearing father and him from his boss. There’s instalove and sparks flying and bullets whizzing by. There’s a crazy road trip and when I say it’s non-stop action, I am not even kidding. I was really surprised by how much story Linden packed in here. At the surface, this is just your typical boy from the wrong side of the tracks falls for rich princess who wants to escape, but there’s more here. There’s this whole mystery and definite danger following them. I loved the fast-pacing and the intensity.

Yes, there’s crazy instalove, but I don’t mind that. *grin*

Love at first sight gif

I loved Knox and thought he was super swoony. Natalie was alright, but he totally made up for it. He was a total badass but was also protective and tender when it came to Natalie.

His hands fisted at the thought of seeing Natalie every day, but not being able to touch her, to kiss her, to love her. He never would have dared to dream of having a woman like Natalie in his life, but now that she was there, he didn’t want to live without her.

I also love that he didn’t have the whole “I’m not good enough for her, so I’ll push her away” thing that we’re so used to. He knew he wasn’t good enough for her and never would be, but he wasn’t willing to give her up or take that choice away from her.

There were some things that I didn’t like, like View Spoiler », but what are you gonna do? 😉 I also wish this had been in first person, but that’s pretty much always what I want. Overall, I’d say that I really liked this book. With fast-paced action, a couple you’ll be rooting for, and seriously sexy times, Fight for Me is a great choice for all romance fans.
