Jamie Cole has just been released from juvenile detention. Determined to go straight, he tried to cut ties with crime boss Brett Reye–but Brett has no intention of letting him go. Jamie’s life is already more complicated than it needs to be, yet when he meets a beautiful stranger at a bar, Jamie knows he’s in over his head.
Ellie Pearce has just gotten out of a terrible relationship and isn’t looking for anything serious…until she meets Jamie. Their attraction is overwhelming and intense-she can’t seem to shake her growing feelings for him, even though she’s trying to keep it casual.
But when fate goes horribly wrong and Jamie’s family is faced with ruin, he’s forced to strike a deal with Brett. Despite his struggles, he wants nothing more than a future with Ellie. That’s until Ellie finds out that he’s been hiding more from her than she could ever imagine…
5 heartachingly good stars.
I’m always excited with a Kirsty Moseley release and also a little worried that this will be the book I don’t love. I’m thrilled to say Fighting To Be Free was not that book. I loved it.
At first I was slightly worried about the age of the characters but I soon forgot about that. There was the odd thing that reminded me like Ellie’s naivety and her willingnesss to just overlook big issues but in no way did that take anything away from the story.
Considering the book was full of drama, sadness and law breaking, there was also a huge side of cuteness and overwhelming love. Kirsty does what she does best and gives us two characters we can’t help but fall for. I felt for Ellie throughout and just wanted to hug Jamie better, all I really wanted was for the badboy to go straight and for them to live happily ever after.
It’s hard to write an indepth review as I really don’t want to spoil anybody’s experience as it really is a story you need to discover for yourself. Kirsty’s trademark ability to suck you in and hold you close as well as punch you in the face runs throughout the whole book and going in blind means you get to experience the thrill of the ride for yourself.
It’s safe to say Jamie is the baddest boy Kirsty has written and also the ending is the riskiest one yet but I’m more than in love with this story and eagerly awaiting book 2.
