Fighting Love by Abby Niles  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


     Just finished “Fighting Love” what an amazingly sexually charged, funny, heartwarming story.  I love when stories make you feel with all your senses. 

     From the very beginning this story was endearing to me.  Something that was very surprising to me.  I was sent this book by the authors PR person for an honest review. 

     I have to say from the get go Tommy got to me.  He was this cage fighter or should I say ex cage fighter?  He was thinking of buying his BFF from childhood, who happens to be a girl, a Valentine’s gift.  If that wasn’t enough to win your heart over then hold on.

     You see, him and his dog were out on an early morning run when he is on his way back he sees smoke.  Then he figures out it’s his house that he sees that is on fire, the flames burning hot.  His first thought is just one thing, to be able to save one box.  This box means the world to him.  He had lost his family, his profession, and now his home he just couldn’t lose this box and what was in it.  He secures his dog with a neighbor and runs in.  Overcome with smoke, eyes burning and embers flying he forges on.  The roof starts to cave in when he feels his arms encircled and he is pulled to safety. 

     Once he can breathe again, he looks back at the house seeing all his memories as going up in smoke.  All he can think about is making two calls, to his landlord and to Julie, his BFF.  Twenty minutes later she’s there, once she finds him on the back of an ambulance and hugs him tight she asks what happened.  When she finds out he wasn’t even in there when it started but went in after a stupid box she slugged him twice.  Then, told him he was going home to her house after she ran him around to get what he needed.  He didn’t want to impose on her but there was nothing else he could do especially with his dog.

     When they arrived there she asks, “What was in that box?”  He explains everything she had ever given to him was in there everything.  Especially, that first hat she gave him when he was 16 years old.  He looked so lost she said like he had lost the world for him it was his whole world, her.

     Can two BFF’s make a 23 year relationship out of a friendship and make it work?  Or is someone always meant to get hurt?  Or is it just best to let things be to protect the friendship at all cost?  Or do you have to just walk away from the friendship and the possibility of the love connection to see the other one is happy?  What happens when you are both doing the same thing for the others sake?  Who wins then?  You will have to read to find out a lot of the answers to these questions.  I give this: 5 stars.
