Talk about kicking a fighter while he's down.

Former Middleweight champion and confirmed bachelor Tommy "Lightning" Sparks has lost it all: his belt, his career, and now his home. After the devastating fire, he moves in with his drama-free best friend, Julie. One encounter changes everything and Julie is no longer the girl he's spent his life protecting but a desirable woman he wants to take to his bed. Knowing his reputation, he's determined to protect Julie more than ever—from himself.

Veterinarian Julie Rogers has been in love with Tommy since she was ten, but would love to get over the man. She's quiet nights at home and a glass of wine. He's clubbing all night and shots of tequila. As friends they work great. As a couple? No way in hell. She just can't get her heart to agree. When she starts spending time with another fighter, the man who's always treated her like a sister is suddenly not being very brotherly and enflames her body like never before.

Can two childhood friends make a relationship work, or will they lose everything because they stopped FIGHTING LOVE.

Kassiah: Fighter and manwhore Tommy is homeless after his house burned down, so his BFF Julie lets him move in. He starts noticing her as a woman more than a sister, but you know how guys are–he can’t deal with his feelings so he makes an ass of himself. When Julie goes out with someone else, Tommy realizes that he has to be with her. Will they risk their friendship for something more?

Friends to more is one of my favorite genres, so I wanted to read Fighting Love when I realized what it’s about. This book is hot (no surprise there) and though the characters annoyed me at times, I really enjoyed it. I am surprised how much I liked Julie. She wasn’t a doormat at all and basically handed Tommy his ass. In a perfect world, Julie and Dante (from Book 1) could have been together because I didn’t like Caitlyn or Tommy that much. haha It is possible that I had a hard time liking him not only because of his whiny attitude but because my high school boyfriend’s name was Tommy and it was weird for me. #thingsthatmakeyougohmmm The ending though pretty much makes up for everything that happened because *swoon*.

Fast-paced and unconventional, Fighting Love is a good pick for readers who like fighter romances.
