Format: Kindle Edition
This is a "new adult" style romance even though neither lead is actually in college. They are early 20s, just starting out their lives, and their immaturity really shows in this one. That isn't awful in a book, especially new adult, just be sure that is what you want to read.

Devlin runs a restaurant his parents used to own, passed to him. His dad somehow owed money for gambling debts, and those debts fell to Devlin. He works for the prior bookie through his restaurant to pay his debt yet also lives the high life in a condo and expensive car. That was an improbable setup for me to accept, but on I went in this one. Rena is 23 and had something tragic happen to her in high school. This thing apparently is preventing her from moving on, I guess, because not only doesn't she date (more understandable), but she seems to not do anything else like attend college. She does have a job, recently starting work at the hero's restaurant.

My biggest problem in this book is I absolutely could not figure out why one character liked the other. She would chase him most of the time while he said and did mean things. And then he would give her a little hope and then go back to being a jerk. This went on throughout the entire book pretty much to the very end. Why? I just didn't get the appeal at all, so this gets 3 stars from me. The writing wasn't bad, and the plot just wasn't my cup of tea.

My thanks to the publisher via Netgalley for an advanced copy to read and review.

Favorite Quotes:

“Oh the lies she told. I rolled my eyes as she turned and walked to the hostess station. I knew damn well that Melinda, or any of the other females in this restaurant, would trade an ovary to be under Devlin's intense blue-eyed stare for fifteen minutes. To be under him, period.”

“He'd be less successful at getting money for Sonny given that he looked about as trustworthy as a used car salesman. I blamed the pencil-slim suit pants. Never trust a man whose junk you could see at a glance.”

“That's why I no longer did 'bad' things. Bad things led to worse things. A wave of regret licked at my insides like fire. Nothing new there.”

“Every mom had her own version of 'the look,' and when a daughter sees it, she knows, without words, what it means. Hers always said the same thing: You've been single too long.”

“The idea of someone so good wanting someone like me jolted my heart into a new rhythm. Like Frankenstein's monster, alive after being cold and dead – stray, unfeeling limbs brought together for renewed purpose.”

“Something about the way she reacted to me hinted that we were kindred spirits. Impossible. She was Red Riding Hood to my Big Bad Wolf.”

“I want you, Rena. I haven't stopped wanting you. Want is flowing through me like lava.”

My Review:

Jessica Lemmon has mad skills. This is my second time reading her and am already grieving the idea of having to move on to the next on my list as I am grooving on her style. Her characters are original and unique, while also flawed and real, and not ones you would expect to be heroic, but they are. Their halos may be tarnished and sideways - due to the small set of horns - but the glow is there, if you look for it.

I’ve read a lot of books recently because they have been promoted as being similar to some of my favourite authors, with that in mind I don’t know if I have been overly critical in my judgement of the stories because I have a pre-conceived notion of the writing style expected based on my favourite authors (you understand what I’m trying to stay right??) Well lesson well and truly learned LOL

Fighting for Devlin has intriguing characters where events have shaped them and placed them behind self-imposed barriers. However, I have to say I didn’t fully connect with the characters and therefore, it is this aspect that affected my overall enjoyment of the story. Jessica does build an incredible plot that is both fast paced and thought-provoking so it was just my personal connection to the characters that was the main problem :)

Told in dual first person narrative with alternating chapters from Rena, the ‘good girl’ waitress and Devlin, the ‘bad boy’ restaurant owner. However, I did feel it was Devlin’s character development that was the heart of the story.

Incidents on both sides are hinted at through the narrative allowing the reader to jump to conclusion and therefore, fear the worse. So when the revelations happen they do feel a little anti-climatic following the dramatic build-up. Especially with the way Rena is filled with misplaced guilt and regret. Personally, I found Rena a little immature and naive, While Devlin seems to be caught in a life to pay for his fathers follies. With links to organised crime and gambling addiction being woven into the plot. The narrative takes into consideration the addiction gambling can cause – the continual quest for the next big win dominating all rational thought.

ARC graciously provided by Netgalley in exchange for a honest review.

This book was easily a 10 star book. Devlin seriously made this book! I love a hot alpha male who has issues. It just makes a book more enjoyable when an author makes an Alpha work for it.

Devlin isn't perfect. In fact he's not even law abiding. Running as an in between for a shark doesn't exactly make it easy to date. But when he's gets jumped by some rival thugs he needs his sexy new waitress to help him do his job. What he doesn't realize is that this good girl has just enough spice to make him sweat.

I loved Rena. While she understood that she had feelings for Devlin she also was a strong enough woman to not be a doormat. I absolutely can't stand a heroine who magically fall in love. Devlin and Rena made me believe how they felt. The ups and down and everything in between had my heart learching for them. Their passion was flaming and definitely able to wet your panties.

Jessica Lemmon is a master of words. This being a new author for me I was a little apprehensive but I am so glad I picked up this book. I fell hard for the characters. Jessica definitely knows how to keep you up all night reading one more chapter until the sun comes up. Work today was definitely not that fun but oh so worth the lack of sleep.

I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in this series. After all that happened to Cade I really want to see him get his happy ending.
