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. Instead of being pushy and demanding, he patiently lets Joss know exactly what he wants, in turn leads her to discover and awaken her suppressed sexual desires that she didn’t think she possessed. I wish I could pinpoint exactly what it is about him that makes him so sexy. Is it the confidence he shows in the bedroom, knows what he wants, or both? I just couldn’t get enough of him.
“He studied her eyes calmly. “Because I want to take you home with me. Make the bed, and then f**k you on it.” He spoke just as calmly and casually as he was looking at her, but he added a smirk.”
I say take me now.
As a father with a teenage daughter (Natalie), it was interesting to read how he didn’t think he had it in him to fight for a relationship with Joss as he was forever fighting his guilty feelings about his late wife. When he did admit to himself that he had strong feelings for Joss and wanted a relationship with her, he then had to convince Joss that this was something she wanted too and like him, she deserved it. Again, I loved reading the POV of both Joss and Isaiah, but it was Isaiah’s POV that really captured me, reading his thoughts and feelings on pretty much everything from Joss, to his daughter, his former life, and his late wife.
Finn being the talented writer she is, she gives her readers’ steamy and erotic sexcapades that will sure to leave you very hot and bothered. Even better, there was always something a little different with each interlude so as to not become tediously boring. Different from a lot of the mainstream erotic novels out there, part of me wanted my husband to read this novel just to pick up some pointers. (Shhhhhhh….you didn’t hear that from me.)
I fell in love with Joss and Isaiah (yeah, okay more Isaiah than Joss), and fell in love with the story. If you love reading novels that are about adults, are suspenseful, romantic and erotic, and includes a very sexy and talented man, “The Fight For Us” is a novel I highly recommend.
“Fight for us “is a romantic emotional masterpiece. A tale of love and hope. It is a beautiful story and you cannot miss the opportunity to read it.
Once I started I did not want to put it down.
Elizabeth Finn has proven herself over and over again. She is incredibly gifted and like to write about her flawed characters.
I love how Isaiah took the lead and decided he will fight for them and for being together. He is a man that said sometimes the most wonderful things that just made my heart miss several beats.
What a wonderful manly man.
Thank you for a great book Elizabeth! I can’t wait to read your next book!!!
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!
