Wow! Just wow!

Full of suspense and romance, this was an amazing novel that I not only loved but couldn’t put down. A quarter of the way in and I knew that I didn’t want it to end. This is a story of two single-parent adults, divorced mom Joss (36), and widower Isaiah (42). Many accusations, assumptions, and heated words are exchanged when they first meet, but over time as they keep running into each other Isaiah finds himself thinking of Joss more and more.

Elizabeth Finn (“Finn”) does a terrific job weaving a brilliant and well-developed story with the most complex characters that made everything come across as real and genuine. I loved both Joss and Isaiah, two people who have some serious issues that are plaguing them both. I love when a story is told from both the H/h’s POV and Finn does just that with both Joss and Isaiah. Divorced and raising a teenage daughter (Harper), Joss never thought she deserved anything good or would be free of the devil – her ex. Her ex, Todd, is a real sleaze as his one and only goal is to torture Joss every which way he possibly can. His tactics are evil and just when you think he can't get any lower, he reaches new depths to humiliate and shame Joss that are quite shocking. It’s only with the help of Isaiah that Joss finds the confidence within her to deal with her problems, whether it be her ex or her job.

While some may think Isaiah to be “alpha-male,” I didn’t think he was in the traditional sense. I didn’t find him to be arrogant, narcissistic, demanding, or an a**h*le. Instead, he’s a male that knows what he wants and will do whatever it takes to achieve his goal. This is true of him in the bedroom making him even more sexy and attractive than I already thought he was.

Elizabeth Finn has done it again.

What an emotional story about two people finding the courage to move forward from their pasts that hold them captive. To love again and fight for a chance to be happy.

Isaiah lost his wife. His daughter tried to take her life after losing her mother. Isaiah doesn't want to lose his daughter so he moves. He removes them from the one place that is always a reminder of who they once were. There was a time his job meant everything to him but now his daughter is all that matters.

Joss thought she was in love with her husband but as time went on she truly saw him for what he really was; a monster. When she finally has the courage to leave him, he does the only thing that could bring her to her knees. She agrees to his demands only to protect her daughter but over time she truly starts to despise her decision to remain dependent on the one person who has taken her dependence away. That's until Isaiah walks into her life.

The last thing Isaiah or Joss was looking for was one another or a relationship. Given the circumstances that bring them together; they both desperately don't want to be attracted to one another but fate has its own way of interfering. As both Joss and Isaiah struggle with the temptation for one another, their desire for one another outweighs the temptation and together they take a plunge into each others arms. However, for Joss life was never simple; her ex will stop at nothing to make sure Joss lives a life in fear.

While Isaiah comes to terms with his feelings for Joss, he slowly opens himself up to the possibility that he deserves to be happy. That his past mistakes don't define who he is. He couldn't save his wife but he can save Joss. Joss is his future. Together they can beat anything and together they can finally have what both of them truly deserve; happiness!

*********************SPOILER ALERT*********************************************

“Is this that whole bit about teaching our girls to wait until they’re old enough to have sex? ’Cause I’m forty-two, and I have no problem saying I’m plenty old to make love to the woman I love.”

From the author’s page: Her passion is creating stories packed full of angsty believable conflicts, characters who leave you rooting for them, and romance that might just short-circuit your e-reader. She likes her characters flawed and scarred, but they always find the best part of themselves on their journey, and her readers find themselves devoted to her authentic, honest and heartfelt voice.

Well I can say that Ms. Finn met her objectives 100% in this book. Fight for Us is real. It’s not fantasy and, it’s not insta-love or insta-lust. It’s about real people facing real problems and dealing with them in a way that we see in everyday life. It’s a slow build up to true love and there is no doubt that the H and the h truly love each other when the reader gets their HEA. It’s about dealing with death, suicide, single parenting, mental and physical spousal abuse, guilt and forgiveness for past mistakes.

The story begins with a confrontation between Isaiah and Joss at the high school where Joss’ daughter is accused of bullying Isaiah’s daughter. The girls are both 14 and they are the product of heart wrenching circumstances beyond their control. Isiah and Joss have altered their entire life to protect their daughters and shield them from hurt. Isaiah has a heavy burden of guilt on his shoulders because his wife committed suicide. Two months later his daughter attempts suicide. He feels he put his job first and should have seen the depression his wife suffered.
