Blueridge Junction (BJ) is a small town and three families are considered a kind of "royalty" for their role in founding the town and keeping it alive.
Micah Edwards' family owns the local garage and Micah is the best mechanic for miles around. He wants to take over running the garage someday but his jerk father won't allow any "pansy ass" to manage the business. To say that Ed Edwards is homophobic would be putting it mildly.
Micah meets Coleman (Cole) Pierce through a hook-up app. Their chemistry is off the charts but Cole insists on no exchange of names and no contact outside of the time when they hook-up.
Imagine Micah's surprise, and Cole's dismay, when Micah finds out that Cole is the new Social Studies teacher at the high school. Cole was kind of run out of town, and lost his last teaching job due to homophobia. He's been working in a bank for the last two years until he finally got the courage to try teaching again. He won't live as an out-gay man in BJ for fear of once again losing the job he loves.
Wow, this story made me feel many things. Anger – certainly – at Micah's father and other idiots like him who want to run Cole out of town. Tears of sadness for what Micah and Cole are put through and must come to terms with if they are to find happiness with each other. Tears of joy when things finally work out. And laughter – the young-ish gay man named Jay is a hoot and manages to often inject some much-needed levity when things get too somber.
I loved the characters of Micah's best friends, Levi and Cody, and local law enforcement officer Kennedy Marks. Fight For It doesn't have a cliffhanger but Ms. Ellis certainly manages to leave this reader wanting to read individual stories; I can hardly wait for her to write them.

This was the start of a series that will follow 3 men. Micah is up first. He lives in the small town of Blueridge Junction. He makes his living as a mechanic in his dad's shop that he dreams of one day owning. He has two best friends Cody and Levi who will be the other 2 men who will get their own book later on. Levi is his cousin and Cody is his best friend. But really they are all best friends and are known as the BJ Boys. Get your mind out of the gutter. The initials are of their town. Micah has recently found what he believes is his soul mate in the new social studies teacher in town, Cole Pierce. The problem is that Cole doesn't want to be out and proud like Micah. He wants to stay in his very comfortable closet where he can't be hurt again because he's gay. Where he can't lose his job because homophobes think his sexual preference somehow effects the children he is teaching. The guys both struggle with keeping their relationship on the down low. Micah thinks with time Cole will change his mind especially after both men exchange the 'I love you's'. Things are rocky and get even messier when Micah's homophobic father starts threatening Cole's life and his job.
I like the book and found the characters interesting. I really enjoyed Jay and Levi's banter and will love to get their book next. My problems with the book came down to my personal dislikes. I didn't care for how much crying there was. It's just a peeve of mine and it happened so often I started getting annoyed by it. It's not the books fault. I am just jaded and cynical. LOL Which leaves me to the other problems I had was with how mushy it was. It was a bit on the cheesy side and like I said, I am too cynical to enjoy that kind of interaction between Cole and Micah. I'm pretty sure the romantics at heart will swoon over the things they said to each other.
Happy reading dolls! xx
I can appreciate what the author was trying to do here but the story felt underwhelming. This seemed more like a rough draft where all the plot points where clearly out there but no major thought or emotion went into them. It fell flat for me.
Also, everything with these two just happened so fast. These two guys were just hooking up in hotel rooms, then they end up in the same town. They decided that they will continue to hook-up. They have one weekend getaway together and suddenly they're in love. Then their relationship is tested by Cole possibly losing his job because of his s*xuality and the main antagonist is Micah's homophobic father. There was no time for these two to breath it was one thing after another.
Clearly this is the first book of a series and I give the author kudos because I do want to read more about Levi/Jay and Kennedy/Cody. TBH I was more intrigued by what their stories could be. Honestly, Jay was the most entertaining and interesting character of them all. So I will definitely look out for his story.
