A larger-than-life firefighter inspires a career-driven woman to live in the moment—and trust in the power of love—in this flirty, emotional novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Searching for Harmony. 

 Finn Ward has two passions: being a firefighter and being single. Although his parents are constantly nagging him to settle down, Finn just wants to enjoy himself while he’s young. Then, at a union meeting, he meets a gorgeous lawyer with a dazzling smile—and suddenly, settling down doesn’t sound so bad. Rory Adams is fresh out of law school and looking to make a name for herself at her mother’s firm. She doesn’t have time for silly games anymore. But when she catches the eye of a dashing fireman who makes her body tingle from across the room, something instantly ignites between them. The only problem? Her father is Finn’s boss. Their relationship turns both of their lives upside-down. Rory tames Finn’s wild ways, while he shows her that life can’t be all work and no play. But it’ll take some serious determination to keep their love secret—and real courage to admit the truth.  

Rating/Review: ☕☕☕ 1/2 (3.5 cups!)

This sweet and hilariously funny romance will have your preconceived notions about dating the boss' daughter trope out of the window.  Meet Finn, eternally good-looking playboy firefighter whose Captain once caught him making out at the station.  Now he thinks his boss is out to get him.  But then he meets Rory and everything seems to fall into place, it's like he's waxing poetic all of a sudden.  But then he gets saddled with the firehouse puppy who has his own behavioral problems plus it seems Rory is out of reach.  Rory is his boss' daughter and if he values his life he needs to stay as far away as possible.  He's already got stuck with the dog!  Rory has her own issues to deal with and getting involve with Finn isn't really sounding like a great idea.  But he really is cute and an adorable neat freak.  Plus he needs help with the puppy from hell. So what's a girl to do?
Fighting For Love is a really fun read that will have you laughing and turning to mush at the same time.  Plus who can actually say no to an adorable puppy!

She took another bite of her toast. “But work is for sure not on your mind, Rory. Not with that goofy deer-in-the-headlight look on your face. You’re thinking about a guy.”
My mouth dropped. How in the hell did she know that? “I am not.”
Lifting her brow, she tilted her head and replied, “Really? Look me directly in the eye and tell me you were not thinking about a guy and I’ll treat you to a mani-pedi today.”
“Oh, that sounds like fun! I haven’t done that in a long time.”
“Stop avoiding the question, Rory.”
Taking a bite of my parfait, I asked, “What was the question again?”
With a huge smile, Clare pointed her egg-filled fork at me. “I knew it! I knew it. . . . What’s his name?”
I thought about lying and saying it wasn’t a guy who had my mind so damn preoccupied, or blurting everything out and asking Clare for advice. I was positive it would somehow involve his dick.
“It’s Finn.”
Her mouth formed an O as her eyes widened. “Finn? That sounds sexy as fuck.”
Worrying my lower lip into my mouth, I clamped down on it and nodded. I closed my eyes and sighed. Opening them, I focused on Clare. “Oh, gosh, Clare. He is more than sexy. If you were to look up ‘hot-as-hell guy with the most amazing fit body’ in Webster’s, his picture would be there. He’s funny, has the most adorable smile, and when he’s really happy, his dimples pop out. He has crazy hair that looks like he runs his hand through it all . . . the . . . time. His condo is immaculate. Like you thought I was crazy weird about keeping stuff clean, this guy takes it up a level.” I stopped talking and thought about Finn’s eyes. “Those amazing emerald eyes of his are so easy to get lost in. They way he looks at me sometimes is so seductive I feel like I’m going to combust. And his kiss . . . Good Lord, his kiss left me reeling for hours.”
Clare sat there with her toast frozen at her mouth and stared at me. She dropped it to the plate and let a huge grin take over her face.
“Wow. Please tell me you slept with this guy and that he was the best sex you’ve ever had, ’cause the look on your face right now is almost borderline . . .”
She gasped.
Leaning in closer, I asked, “Borderline what?”
“First tell me, did y’all sleep together?”
I shook my head and took a bite of yogurt. “No. He asked me out to dinner, but I turned him down.”
Gripping the table, Clare shook her head. “Whoa . . . time out. Wait one damn minute. You haven’t even been out on a date with this guy? When did you kiss? You were at his condo? Why? How can you be that head over heels for someone and not have gone on a date?” Pinching the bridge of her nose, she moaned, “I’m so confused.”
She turned and searched for the waiter. “We need two Bloody Marys stat!”
