BOOK & AUTHOR INFO:
Fighting For You by Layla Hagen
(The Connor Family series #5)
Publication date: 16th June 2019
Jace Connor has received many titles in his career, and enjoyed them all. Although, he’s working on changing the last one. There’s more to Jace than the media portrays—a man who loves his tight-knit family, being his nieces’ and nephews’ favorite uncle.
The reformed party-boy is now steering clear of anything that could blemish his reputation. But when the coach’s gorgeous daughter is hired on as the team’s new sponsorship manager, keeping on the straight and narrow becomes impossible. Her warm and bubbly personality coupled with her sexy-as-sin body makes her irresistible.
Brooke Derringer wants to prove to everyone that she wasn’t hired due to her personal connections. She’s determined to keep things strictly business and focus only on work. She learned the hard way that the office isn’t the place to make friends.
But a certain smoking hot–and bossy–soccer player is determined to change her mind. Surprising her with clandestine dinners and late-night gym sessions, Jace is inescapable.
For the first time in his life, Jace wants more. He wants the whole package…with the one woman he can’t have. But Jace doesn’t let that deter him. He’s determined to fight for her. And he will.
She’s only gone and done it again! This is, I think,my favourite in the series thus far. I really loved Jace – his interactions with the family (including cheeky Milo), his colleagues, and Brooke. It felt like we were getting a frank look at the real him, after being a support character in the previous books. And what a revelation – no game playing, just straight up “get the girl” laser focus.
Brooke wasn’t too bad either – I know, faint praise, but it’s not intended. She was the perfect counterpoint to Jace’s persistence.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
