Wow, this turned out to be quite different than what I was expecting. From reading the blurb, I had it in my mind that it was going to be a certain way, and kept waiting for that to happen. This started out a little slow for me pretty much until you really get a feel for what’s going on with Nathan.
He clearly has some major issues, but I certainly wasn’t prepared for what was really going on. He is engaged to be married to his boss’ daughter, though he struggles with upholding the façade of being straight. At first, it seems he is fighting himself and the whole actually being gay deal, but as the story progresses, we find that really doesn’t seem to be the case at all. As I said, the beginning was slow, just about until more details are given about the actual scam going on, of which Nathan plays a huge role.
In the middle of this, Nathan meets Fury, a fighter and all-around rough and tough dude. But, he is not what he seems either, in that he is a really sweet, good hearted guy. When these guys actually give in to their attraction, this story took off for me, as this became the focus. Nathan really comes into himself through his relationship with Fury, and I loved watching him transform. Fury is not without his own issues, however, and eventually, they each must address them in order to be together. I really loved Fury, and especially Nathan and Fury together. There is so much emotion and chemistry between them, and I was really hoping they could make things work.
This was very well written. It is a bit edgy at times, mostly in the beginning when Nathan is really fighting his demons, but I loved the gritty feel and loved how vivid the scenes were. I had no trouble picturing anything happening and felt like I was right there with them. Nathan struggled so much with everything, from hiding his sexuality to lying about the marriage. I so wanted him to be at the point where everything worked out in his favor and he was able to really enjoy what he had with Fury. These guys have various issues, but when they work through them and are together, they are hot stuff. I’m highly recommending this to those who want a little something different with a tiny bit of mystery and intrigue, hot sex and sensual/emotional loving.
One of the best things about Kelly's writing is Kelly's ability to build a world – and what a world one finds in the pages of FIGHT. It's gritty, it's hard, it's drugs and pain, and bodies being dealt hard blows with unforgiving brutality. It's REAL and HONEST: set up smoothly, described intently, and the scenes are accurate, explicit, and entertaining. But understand, I don't just mean the fighting that takes place in the rings or the blood-smeared, boot-trampled floors of smarmy venues. Hell, no. There are darker and harder battles being fought in the pages of this novel than any fist could ever combat.
That's what makes this read so damn intense – the emotion. The hurt. The resolve. This is a story about finding peace with who you are, why you are, and what you need to do to get where you need to be. It's about how much of a miracle love can be when you let it help define the path you take to get there. And how much an obstacle it can become if it's ignored.
True to its name, FIGHT takes its reader through every round of this romance, artfully dodging and jabbing, building intensity in a culmination of plot that has its audience off their feet and rooting the heroes on, right up to the moment they take their victory walk up the aisle.
Awesome novel. Steaming hot sex. Fantastic characters. Very highly recommended.
There were several scenes I loved in this book, my favorite being Nathan and Fury in the shower. Don’t get me wrong the scene was amazingly hot, I mean I definitely had to put the book down and fan myself. But more than the sexiness of the scene the intimacy of it made my heart hurt. Nathan’s desperation, Fury’s determination, and the fact that by the end of the scene you can tell both man are craving that same level of connection, someone to trust with their true selves.
Another amazing scene for me was when Fury came back after two weeks and found out about Nathan slipping up and falling back to drugs. When Fury says “I ain’t your reason to get sober…not the only one. I can’t be.” I found that so powerful. Because by the end of the book we see that Nathan has to get clean and sober for himself. Fury was the catalyst, but in the end Nathan has to do that work all on his own. It worked he same way for Fury, meeting Nathan made him want to get his life on track and work harder towards that goal.
I think Fight tells an amazing story that manages to cover radical topics like homophobia, abuse, drug addiction, sexual abuse, and domestic violence. But in the midst of tackling these major topics it also tells a story of love and how finding someone who truly loves and sees you can be the first step down a path to true happiness.
Nathan and Fury didn’t find love and then immediately all their problems vanished, they had to fight for it. They had to battle family, friends, enemies, and more importantly themselves in order to obtain it.
I was relieved they got their happy ending, I don’t know if I’ve ever known two characters who deserve it more.
