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.

The descriptions of small-town living are very vivid and A.D. Ellis tackles the problems of living in a small town with the biased narrow-minded residents and the surprisingly high number of “good people” with proficiency. The most drama is coming from those the closest to them.
The characters of Cole and Micah are likable. But it is the connection between them I found a bit lacking. I love to feel the connection between two MC’s, the attraction, and the chemistry. I didn’t feel that with these two. At least, not in the beginning. Maybe it is the speed in which the relationship developed that didn’t quite feel right for me. Over halfway through the book, it was better and at the end, I really could see them together.
I loved their friends and their interactions: Cody, Kennedy, Levi, and Jay. They take Cole into their midst as a long-lost friend. I adored Jay. He is sparkling, full of life, and has a mouth on him but he also has a hidden depth and insight.
