The next seductive, unforgettable stand-alone romance in the FIGHT FOR ME series from NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson . . .

Kale Bryant. Arrogant. Gorgeous. Commanding.

This ER doctor is married to his job. His only vice is one-night stands and short-lived flings. He learned a long time ago loving someone isn’t worth the risk.

Harley Hope Masterson. Beautiful. Brave. Sweet.

The owner of a small coffee shop knows what it’s like to struggle. Embroiled in a bitter divorce, she’s threatened with losing everything.

When Kale accepts a new position down the street from Hope’s shop, he begins to question every wall he’s built around his heart.

He wants her in a way he hasn’t wanted anyone.

One touch is fire.

One kiss, and he’s spinning out of control.

But taking her won’t come without consequences.

Hope is in for the fight of her life. One neither of them saw coming.

Now Kale must decide if loving her is worth risking it all.

She will fight with everything she has.

But sometimes even hope needs a hero . . .

Dr. Kale Bryant is a man who is living for his friends and his patients, but not really for himself. His past had made him shut down his heart and believe he is not worthy of love. He comes off as cocky, confident, intense and dominant, but hides his damaged vulnerable core. But he is also kind, caring, and has a big heart. However he does not get attached to women or have relationships.

One look at Harley Hope Masterson stops him in his tracks. But she resists all of his usual lines. She says her life is complicated, but they can't seem to stop circling around each other until their worlds eventually collide. She's smart, hardworking, devoted, and a bit overwhelmed.  Even though there is so much negativity in her life that she could succumb to, she is also a positive thinker and clings to  as much hope as she can.

As a man who has not had any hope for a long time, her light draws him to her and begins to illuminate some of his dark parts. They both have secrets and motivations as to why they make the choices they do. There are battles to face, shaken faith, needing to grasp onto hope, and bad timing.

Can they get past their fears holding them back to try to help pull the other one out of their own darkness?

I loved these two. Their connection and chemistry was without question. Some of their complications didn't seem to be a big issues, but others seemed insurmountable. He's afraid to fail. She's so afraid of getting hurt and of loss. It's hard to get past their previous experiences and move on. Little gains lead to trust and more open hearts, but also make them vulnerable to more hurt.

Are hope and love enough to really conquer fears?

This story is full of tension, angst, heartache, frustration, but is also beautiful, heartwarming and inspiring. It will all come down to taking risks, fighting fears, fighting for love, and grasping on to dreams that feel impossible. Their secrets are gradually revealed--some are easier to figure out than others. They have demons to slay if there is a chance of moving forward.

It is a complex, multi-faceted story with twists and surprises that is told in dual points of view. It brings back the characters we met in Show Me The Way as they illustrate the importance of family, friends, and support. I enjoyed more with Rex, Rhynna, Nikki, Ollie, Lillith, and Brody. Her friend, Jenna was also a breath of fresh air. And  some adorable kids stole the show. I like the setting of Gingham Lakes and the small town, community feel.

This story was intense, compelling, and emotional, and it keep me up late finishing it. My heart hurt for these characters so much, but also was inspired by their strong wills, capacity to love, generosity, and strength. It definitely put me through the wringer, made me feel, and took me out of a book slump. I am so looking forward to big, burly, outgoing Ollie's story next.

Kale Bryant is starting a new job, meeting his new patients, and exploring the area around his new office. His job and his friends are his focus, leaving little time for himself. He is dedicated to his patients, loyal, and devoted.

Harley Hope Masterson’s life is complicated. She has so many irons on the fire, there is little time or energy left for herself. Hope’s shop, down the street from Kale’s office, offers the perfect excuse for Kale to run into her again and again, though neither is sure how to handle the attraction building between them.

Kale isn’t used to relationships, having preferred to keep things casual since college. Hope is still reeling from her impending divorce and isn’t looking to jump into another relationship anytime soon. But their chemistry runs high, and eventually they have to decide what is worth fighting for.

Add in Hope’s little guy and the challenges he faces and these characters have a lot to fight for. I loved watching each little moment as both Hope and Kale began letting down their walls. But this isn’t a story that can be resolved with just the couple -- there is more at play than either realize.

While I figured out a few of the pieces before they were revealed in the story, my enjoyment was not lessened. In fact, thinking I knew a couple particular threads kept me reading even closer to see if I was correct.

A.L. Jackson writes characters that fight through their flaws, in their own way, in their own time. Kale and Hope are no exception. I loved every minute of this emotional journey.
