He was trouble, and I was the new toy he wanted to play with until it broke. I had no doubt it wouldn't take much for him to break me, but I didn't care. I'd be left with all the broken pieces with no clue how to put myself back together, but the trade-off might be worth it.
My first thought when I saw this book?
Holy shit, that cover!!!

Ladies, come on. Just looking at the cover alone has got you...
My first read by author Bethany Bazile, Fight For Me was an enjoyable read despite some pacing issues, clichés, over dramaticness, and abrupt choppiness in the writing.

am I the only one who didn't like this book that much??
Ok, if you guys know I HATE cheating, with a freakin passion. It's an irony that this book is called fight for me when there was a lot of cheating in here.
I mean I think there was cheating, this is the type of book that I read but the words just kind of go right past my brain and doesn't really click, so hopefully I get everything correct.
the number of cheating that goes on listed... now: (obviously there's spoilers)
1) we find out that ...more
All I could think while reading was incest, incest, incest. Nearly every scene with them together made me cringe. I know they're not actually blood related, they're step brother and sister. But my first impression was that they are brother and sister, and so, my brain won't shut up about it. If it wasn't incest, I could probably read it, and would of probably given it three stars. But there is incest, so here's two stars.
Regardless of the incest, the writing style is choppy, but be ...more
4 Bookwhores rating!
When it comes to books where the male character is some sort of fighter, I tend to be disappointed. And then become pissed off because I want & need a good fighter romance.
Thank the person who created chocolate that this book most definitely did not disappoint!

Honestly, from get go you want to jump him and have his babies!!!!

This was a pretty good story. I liked Ryder and Alexis and liked seeing them get together even if the road to happiness was a little on the rocky side. This is the first book I've read by this author and I liked it well enough that I'll consider trying more of her work in the future.
Alexis is a twin but she lost her twin-brother under very tragic circumstances. She was in a very bad place when Ryder helped her past it. Alexis pulled her life back together but Ryder didn't stick aroun ...more
The book starts out with how Lexi and Logan broke up after he confesses to cheating on her and how moments after her calling her twin brother Alec, Alec is in an accident and doesn't make it. the prologue itself was captivating and right after i read it i had to stop reading and take a short walk due to the pent up emotions in me, Alec's death was tragic an ...more

"I’d lost my heart so deeply to her I knew I wouldn’t survive if she left."
I enjoyed this book! It was hot and entertaining. Did it blow me away? No. But I wasn't expecting blown away, in this category you are competing with Remy and IMO there can never be any competion=) I love bad boy fighters that are pierced and tat'd up!=) Ryder was possessive and a growler...another one of my personal favs. The drama could have driven ...more
Characters: Ryder and Lexi are the MCs. They both are products of strange family dynamics. Lexi has accepted it, but Ryder still struggles.
Storyline: The story opens with a tragic event that hits everyone hard, especially Lexi.
It’s hard to give an overview of this story without giving it away. I will say that Bethany Bazile did a fantastic job with creating a real life dilemma that is difficult to reconcile. I thought about it for a while after ...more

I ended up being part of the little few that didn’t love this book. The things that I can say, without ruining the book to potential readers, are that there were some really good parts to this plot but there were some really undesirable parts as well. The good parts could have made this book wonderful. For instance ...more

Ryder was tough and sweet. I loved Lexi to. Not to much drama. I was shocked at one point toward the end when some drama happened and she didn't run. She actually talked to him about it. They were great together.
Lots of steamy smexy scenes ...more
I enjoyed this, didn't expect it but lets say that a story that got me a little bit of everything, sad, rolls eyes, smiles, confused, annoyed, wtf, huh, angst and yelling at both of Alexis and Ryder kind of made up for all the frustration and when they finally connected.
Not sure how to rate this story. The storyline definitely drew me in and I didn't want to put it down but I also made notes in my nook about Ryder's actions and called him an asshole a few times. His actions often contradicted his feelings.
The premise: Lexi experiences heartbreaking loss that brings Ryder back into her life. Her girlhood crush who held her heart since she was 13. He left a few years ago when her mom and his dad rekindled their long ago relationship ( but the dad ...more

If Beautiful Disaster and Real had a baby .... it would be Fight For Me.
This story was crazy drama filled from page one.
First thing that got me was Alexis Cole is a twin. She looses her brother one tragic night. She blames herself for his accident. He was on his way to come get her and died in a car crash. She felt he was gone without even being told so. My heart was broken.
In a grief filled haze, Alexis tries to end her own pain by drowning herself in the ocean. Luckily for her, her step brothe ...more
