Fighting Fate, by Barbara Speak

What Marissa Johnson never expected when she came to Illinois to tour her brother's Alma mater was meet the man who would haunt her dreams.
Once introduced, she knew she would do anything to stay close to him and hope for a chance.

Mike Harrison never expected to fall for his old college friends little sister. Defending his heavy weight title and having any woman he wanted wasn't enough to keep him away any longer.

Two years came and went while neither of them acted on their wants or desires. All of that changes when someone's grief brings the two together into a situation they can't ignore any longer.

But what happens when insecurity, jealousy, and lack of faith come into play? Can these two overcome the obstacles thrown in their path or will it all come crashing down around them?


My Review : 
I was given this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

I absolutely love Barbara and her writing skills, she knows just how to get you hooked, then she reels you in.
Barb has a great way of making you feel every emotion the character feels.

I can't believe this was the end of the series, it makes me sad to write that.

This is Marrissa's story and it's an emotional one, full of attraction, pent up frustrations, heartbreak and loss not just physical loss but emotional too.

Marrisa has wanted Mike for years, it takes a twist of fate for Marrissa to change her whole outlook on things. I guess she thinks how long can she be invisible to this guy.
You see her character grow from a shy yes girl to a woman who starts to say No!!! 
I love how she developes in the book, she seems stronger, more determine. 
It's not until she stops paying attention to Mike, he begins to take notice of her, or so she thinks.

Mike has fought his feelings for Marrissa for years, but now he's ready to have her!!! But is he too late? 

Things develope in the book, and they decide to give into what they're are feeling, but in true Barbara form, nothing is that simple.

There will be jealousy, lust, and heartbreak along the way.

Barbara will take your heart on a rollercoaster ride with this one, hold on tight.
I love that we get to see all the old characters from the earlier books it makes me want to go and read their stories again.

Thanks Barb for another fantastic opportunity to read your amazing work. Xx  ~ Vicci
