Fighting Love by Abby Niles
Talk about kicking a fighter while he’s down.
Former Middleweight champion and confirmed bachelor Tommy "Lightning" Sparks has lost it all: his belt, his career, and now his home. After the devastating fire, he moves in with his drama-free best friend, Julie. One encounter changes everything and Julie is no longer the girl he’s spent his life protecting but a desirable woman he wants to take to his bed. Knowing his reputation, he’s determined to protect Julie more than ever—from himself.
Veterinarian Julie Rogers has been in love with Tommy since she was ten, but would love to get over the man. She’s quiet nights at home and a glass of wine. He’s clubbing all night and shots of tequila. As friends they work great. As a couple? No way in hell. She just can’t get her heart to agree. When she starts spending time with another fighter, the man who’s always treated her like a sister is suddenly not being very brotherly and enflames her body like never before.
Can two childhood friends make a relationship work, or will they lose everything because they stopped FIGHTING LOVE
I just love reading this book so much since the characters are awesome! I definitely love Julie so much because she is no doormat. She is beautiful, smart and sassy that you can tell that she is no doormat to this relationship at all. Also, I love the gut she has to make the first move to Tommy that most women does not make. I definitely love the redemption story line of Tommy since he lost it all. He blames himself but he works harder to gain it back. He did act like a fool sometimes that I wanted to smack him around. But he grovel back that he redemptive his shelf with Julie. Good book to read for any day.
