The Fight For Us by Elizabeth Finn - #review, #releaseday
The Fight for Us


When Isaiah moves his teenage daughter Natalie to a new town, there is little doubt he’s running away from the past. But what should have been a fresh start for them ends up fraught with pain and heartache when Natalie becomes the victim of intense bullying at her new school.

When Joss is called to a meeting with the high school principal to discuss her daughter Harper’s involvement in the bullying of a new student, she’s shocked to say the least. Her daughter can’t possibly be that child.

It’s a rocky start for Joss and Isaiah as they try to set their daughters on the right path. But there is more to Joss’s and Isaiah’s connection than just two teenage girls. Joss’s and Isaiah’s attraction to one another is undeniable, regardless of their fractious start. But his soul is broken, and as much as he’s drawn to her, he’s equally terrified of what that means.

Is Isaiah strong enough to let her get close to him?

Life sometimes forces you to make those choices whether you’re ready to or not. And when Joss’s life is turned upside down, Isaiah has to decide if he’s ready to leave his past behind and live again, or if he’s going to watch what he’s come to care so much for slip away. Isaiah’s fight is profound. Joss’s is too. And their strength to withstand it all is brutally tested.

Sometimes the willingness to fight for another is all a person has left to give. And sometimes the fight is the most important gift of all.

My Review ...

This book was near perfection for me.  I LOVED IT!!! I was in a bit of a reading funk again and this book pulled me right out. 

What I loved about it: 
  • Isaiah
  • Joss
  • Harper
  • Nat
  • The Storyline
  • The plot
  • The love story
  • The steamy bits
  • The writing format
  • The epilogue
  • The angst
  • Their journey 
  • How the book was set up.

The only thing I didn't love which was just a itsy bitsy thing was the quickness or progression of their story.  Things like he wanted his 'old Joss' back but she was only in a funk for like 2 days and she was very traumatized so, I felt her funk was warranted.  Their relationship and how they dealt with conflict progressed very fast, almost too fast .  But if you can past that which I did then the book was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. 

The whole time I was reading this book I felt like I could imagine it on the big screen. I think it would make an amazing movie. 

The way it was set up was awesome.  The book was divided into 4 parts.  

The Fight - The first was how they met. 

His Fight - The second was dealing with his demons. 

Her Fight -The Third was her demons 

The Fight For us - The 4th was fighting for relationship with all their hardships coming to the surface. 

You felt their pain and were routing for them the whole way through.  I absolutely loved this book and all that came with it.  It was a beautifully emotion filled journey and so worth the ride.  Thank you Elizabeth for the amazing opportunity to be able to review this book. ;)
