I'm a little behind schedule with the blog, I know and I'm sorry, but lately time seems to be faster than The Flash. Hopefully in the next few days I'll be back on track. I wrote this review a few weeks ago, but I don't know why I hadn't posted yet. 

Let's fix that mistake ASAP...

The first sexy, captivating, stand-alone novel in the brand-new FIGHT FOR ME series from NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson.

Rex Gunner. As bitter as he is beautiful. 

The owner of the largest construction company in Gingham Lakes has been burned one too many times. His wife leaving him to raise their daughter was the last blow this single dad could take. The only woman he’ll let into his heart is his little girl. 

Rynna Dayne. As vulnerable as she is tempting. 

She ran from Gingham Lakes when she was seventeen. She swore to herself she would never return. Then her grandmother passed away and left her the deed to the diner that she once loved. 

When Rex meets his new neighbor, he knows he’s in trouble. 

She’s gorgeous and sweet and everything he can’t trust.

Until she becomes the one thing he can’t resist. 

One kiss sends them tumbling toward ecstasy. 

But in a town this size, pasts are bound to collide. Caught in a web of lies, betrayal, and disloyalty, Rex must make a choice. 

Will he hide behind his walls or will he take the chance . . .

My Review:

I have a confession to make. This is my first time reading A.L. Jackson books. I have a couple of titles of her previous series, but I was waiting to have the whole thing to start reading. Then this brand new series was anounced and I said I had to read it. It was my chance.

I'm impresed by the incredibly emotional ride this author made me take. The whole story is filled with such a feelings that's impossible not to laugh with the characters or cry with them. This book hit me direct to my heart and I loved it.

Rex Gunner is a single father to his wonderful daughter, Frankie. His wife left him when Frankie was barely a baby, and after having his heart broken he shut himself off emotionally. Every single moment of his life is dedicated to being a good dad to Frankie, to protect her.

Rynna has just moved back to her hometown after the death of her Grandmother. She has mixed feelings about returning home. Rynna left 11 years ago after being bullied and humiliated in her last year of high school, and that's something that branded her for life. Her only regret was not having the chance to say goodbye to her grandma.

Rynna and Rex are now neighbours, but at the beggining their relationship isn't easy. He's moody and brooding, also he's not open to being a friendly neighbour but it's his daughter that brings Rynna into their home and life. Rex is hurting, and he's not interested in getting to know Rynna, even if he's attracted to her... 

Especially because he's attracted to her.

Rex has spent years denying himself happiness because he thinks he doesn’t deserve it. Having any feelings towards Rynna will only bring unhappiness into both of their lives so it is not even worth it. That's what he thinks. What he doesn't know it's they have everything in common, but nothing at the same time.

Rynna can sense the pain that Rex holds inside himself, because it's the same pain he's being carrying. But she believes in taking chances, and she wants to take a chance on him. Soon, the walls that Rex so carefully constructed around his heart are slowly falling down as he falls for Rynna

This is a emotional story as Rynna comes to terms with her past, face her fears and mourn over the lost of her grandma. She is not longer the little girl that was bullied in high school, she's a different person now, and she will find new strength in love. But Rynna isn't the only one facing the past...

This is a story of love, sacrifice and redemption. A story of second chances, of forgiveness and trust. I think I went through almost much every emotion existent, and loved every moment of the ride.
