Of course, as is so often the case, things get worse before they can get better. Brett nearly hits bottom. His publicist drops him and his agent is about to give up on him too. But before he does Dan calls in a favor from his friend, Frank and his PR firm takes on the task of cleaning up and rebranding Brett's image. Frank assigns Cassandra Fielder because she has experience in dealing with misbehaving athletes. Another athlete is the last thing Cassandra wants to deal with, but then she meets him. Just shaking his hand sends electricity through her whole body... which only annoys her more.
Brett has his reasons for the things he does, but even he doesn't fully realize the depth of those reasons. He only believes he doesn't deserve the good life he has and so unconsciously sabotages it. Nothing his parents, agent or former PR firm says is enough to change his attitude, but when he meets Cassandra and she doesn't coddle him? That gets his attention, as does her beauty and the intense reaction his body has to her every time she's near. As they begin to work together to clean up his image the bad boy in him who refuses to follow rules sees no reason why he shouldn't act on his attraction and pursue his sexy publicist. Poor Cassandra never stands a chance, especially when she begins to see the real Brett and his vulnerability is her undoing. Fantastic story you really need to read and enjoy for yourself! 4.5 stars
Cassandra Fielder has had her fair share of athlete publicity. After a whirlwind marriage with a well known NBA player, she could care less about the ruse that is Brett Hunter. Assisting him in fixing up his image is not her idea of fun, and she let's it be known that she doesn't want any sort of attitude from Brett. In that moment, something seems to change between the two of them, and fireworks really begin to pop off!
There is a huge conflict that occurs towards the end of FIGHTING FOR REDEMPTION, and I have to say it really had me on edge because it involves Brett's past - something he's been attempting to ignore for years. When the truth comes out, so much gets ruined between Cassandra and Brett on a professional, and personal level. Other than that, this was a fun, quick read that had a lot of emotion intertwined between all the pages.
Brett is the bad boy mentioned in the first book as the other party in the cheating scandal with the heroine of that book. Since then his life and career has pretty much gone downhill and his PR firm and his sponsors have had enough.
Enter PR person Cassandra, who's boss is an old friend of Brett's trainer and the person who is supposed to turn Brett's publicity disaster into a positive. This is the last thing she wants as she is still in recovery after marrying a sporting diva who couldn't keep it in his pants. Cassie sees Brett as another of that ilk, so the attraction that flares between them is very unwelcome.
Brett is sick of being judged. He has his own demons and sassy PR women who give him the evil eye is one of them, no matter how attractive.
Thrown together by the PR campaign to save his image, Brett has to face his public and also his friends, including the one he betrayed by getting into a public scandal with his ex. We get to meet two of the previous couples from the series which is a nice way to round things off.
The relationship between Cassandra and Brett is a bit angsty as both resist the attraction. Both have a lot to work through before they are ready for a happy ending. The ending was satisfying.
I enjoyed this read and revisiting The Elite athletes.
Brett has been living with guilt for the last few years, and it's not revealed until midway through the book why he's harboring the guilt. So it makes sense that his recent behavior is subterfuge; if people only concentrate on the present, they won't look into his past and find out what he's been keeping secret.
What neither he nor Cassandra were anticipating was the chemistry between them, even though Cassandra does her best to remind herself that she's NOT attracted to him (yeah right lol), and that she wants nothing to do with another athlete. Only the heart wants who it wants.
I like how this series wrapped up, and that we got to see how everything worked out not only for Brett and Cassandra, but also in regards to Mitch, Julia, Drake and Tamara.
