Review: Fighting Love (Love to the Extreme #2) by Abby Niles

Title: Fighting Love
By: Abby Niles
Series: Love to the Extreme #2
My Copy: Ebook from Netgalley
BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Talk about kicking a fighter while he’s down.

Former Middleweight champion and confirmed bachelor Tommy "Lightning" Sparks has lost it all: his belt, his career, and now his home. After the devastating fire, he moves in with his drama-free best friend, Julie. One encounter changes everything and Julie is no longer the girl he’s spent his life protecting but a desirable woman he wants to take to his bed. Knowing his reputation, he’s determined to protect Julie more than ever—from himself.

Veterinarian Julie Rogers has been in love with Tommy since she was ten, but would love to get over the man. She’s quiet nights at home and a glass of wine. He’s clubbing all night and shots of tequila. As friends they work great. As a couple? No way in hell. She just can’t get her heart to agree. When she starts spending time with another fighter, the man who’s always treated her like a sister is suddenly not being very brotherly and enflames her body like never before.

Can two childhood friends make a relationship work, or will they lose everything because they stopped FIGHTING LOVE.

So I just finished reading another Abby Niles book (see review below on “Britton”) and I thought, “Why not read another book by her?”  So I did…and I am so glad I did. 

Fighting Love was amazing!  I was so hooked that I started and finished it in the same day.  Niles did such an amazing job writing about characters that I really connected with and a plot line that I actually cared about where it was going.

Tommy and Julie have been best friends since they were 10 years old and he has done nothing more than love her, protect her, and be her best friend.  However, Julie wants more than a best friendship.  So when Tommy’s house burns down, he moves in with Julie and I could feel that chemistry between them.  The kind that sits and builds over years and very slowly releases every now and then but when it is the right time, it just explodes.  And that is exactly what happened!  But the best part is that it is not an easy attraction between them.  They both fight against it and then fight for it, swinging back and forth between the two.

There are parts that are going to melt you heart (see below), there are parts that are going to tear your heart out, and there are parts that are going to set your heart on fire!

Things that melted my heart but I won’t go into detail about:
Tommy’s box
Tommy’s protectiveness of Julie
Tommy’s speech after the fight
Both of their Valentines gift to each other

Read it! That is an order!
