Reena Mackay has just been taken advantage of – yet again. This time, the result is that she’s out several thousands of dollars and may have nowhere to live come this weekend. So when Adam and Nick introduce her to Mitch Corrigan, a pro athlete who trains at their club and who’s desperate to move out of the roach hotel he’s stuck in, Reena agrees to live with the tall, muscular, ferocious kickboxer.
Mitch is a man with a rough past, a man who’s almost at the top of a violent profession, and who has a thing for leggy, dark-eyed brunettes. Nobody is more surprised than Mitch himself when he develops a burning attraction to delicate, blonde, blue-eyed Reena: the primal part of him longs to slay a dragon for her, save her from a dark knight, sweep her up in his arms and carry her back to his castle.
But Mitch knows that this is real life, not a fairy tale, and women like Reena never go for guys like him. What he doesn’t know is that Reena understands true brutality and violence all too well; that her continuing faith in people is actually an astounding act of courage; that in her own way, she’s as strong as he is.
When a golden Prince Charming hurts Reena badly, it’s Mitch who’s there to make her feel safe again. But is that enough for her to be vulnerable with another man – especially a man like Mitch? And if she does let him in, will Reena and Mitch get their happy-ever-after (or even happy-just-for-now)?
These poor women just have no luck…
Ok, I am a sucker. 3 in a row and I can’t help myself. Another freebie in the Fighting For Love series. In this one we have another heroine who has been beaten up and left for dead. I think these chicks should stop hanging out with fighters. Just plain bad luck.
In this installment we have a painter who had grown up in the foster system who learned to shut herself off from hurt. Luckily she was adopted by a loving hippie couple who made her life better.
Reena’s “friend” had stolen her money and left her in the lurch when starting a new lease on an apartment. It was her trust and faith in humanity that got her in this situation, so she’s determined to fix it herself and not expect her friends to bail her out. Luckily her friends were able to help her anyway by finding a roommate to share the cost.
Mitch, a fighter who has a heart…and a foul mouth. Needing a new place, he jumped at the chance to move in with Reena knowing that he had feelings for her. Some long-suffering lust, hooking up with random chicks and a little bit of self-loathing, leads to a very drawn out match.
Reena has a bad experience with a man she should have never been with in the first place which finally brings the couple together. Some issues finally get resolved and we get to the sexy times which were Ok.
Another interesting installment. I can’t say this is my favourite series…but I keep going back for more.
