#Review of Fight for Me by Jessica Linden

cover

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?

~ My Review ~

Fight For Me reads like a movie: complete with violence, an unexpected hero, and somewhat questionable (perhaps even dumb) decisions. If you like action, this is the book for you. Except for the love scenes, the book is go, go, go. The story itself was a bit far-fetched. I did find myself sighing from time to time thinking if Natalie was indeed intelligent she would have figured out how to get herself out of the very violent and dangerous situation. The background with Knox was more believable.

Knox was absolutely swoon worthy. I wouldn’t have a problem running straight into his arms – at all. He’s your typical alpha male with a horrible background but a heart of gold. I’m still not sure if I liked Natalie. She made way too many mistakes and drove me a bit nuts.

The writing itself was a bit repetitious. I also felt there could have been more dialogue and less self-reflection.

All in all Fight For Me is a quick read, full of action and hot romance. An enjoyable read for that dreaded overfull flight.
