4 Stars!

Fighting for Love is a contemporary romance by author Kelly Elliott and is book two in her Boston Love series. Despite the fact that this book is a second installment, it can easily be read as a stand-alone. I now have a few books by Ms. Elliott under my belt and I readily admit that I am a fan of her sweet and gushy tales of love and woe. There is just something about reading a low-angst romance that you can easily fall into and be swept away by all the love and happiness.

I just fell in love with this story!

This is the second book in the "Boston Love" series that I have read and reviewed, and it is soooo good! I just fell for Finn. He is a bad boy with a good heart and when he sees Rory, all bets are off. He doesn't even realize it! He is a huge romantic and it is so sweet to read!

Rory has a good heart and totally falls for Finn, but their love is shrouded by a big secret. One that will make their precious relationship very precarious.

Finn is a player. He's a good-looking firefighter and always gets a lot of attention from women. When he meets Rory at a union meeting he knows straight away that she's more important to him than every other woman he's ever been with. There's one problem though, Rory is his captain's daughter and Finn knows his boss doesn't particularly like him. That doesn't stop Finn from going after the woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with. Will they have a chance together?

Rory doesn't have much

Fighting for Love is the second book in the contemporary romance series, called Boston Love by Kelly Elliott. Each of the books can be read as standalones. Fighting For Love is my first book in the series, and I had no problem following and enjoying the story. If you like fun and relatively low drama romances, Fighting For Love is a great book for you to check out. I really liked this one, and I can't wait to read mo

Review by Trinette Dungee

While the description of this book had me anxious to read it, when I actually started reading….I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to like it. I don’t know if it was because I didn’t right away like Finn or if it was because I had the feeling Rory was shaping up to be this highly successful career woman that was a mid-twenties virgin that was going to make me roll my eyes every five minutes. Whatever the case I had prepared myself to struggle with this book and I did strugg

Fantastic story! This second book in the Boston Love series was simply wonderful. Finn Ward makes no apologies for his lifestyle. Hardworking firefighter, hard playing bachelor. No need to change as far as he could see. The fact that his new boss doesn't like his fun loving ways isn't his concern. Then he meets the lovely Rory Adams. She's a lawyer who represents the firefighters union. She's hardworking and doesn't have time for much of a personal life. Finn takes this as a challenge to get her ...more

Kelly Elliott has done it again and delivered another fantastic romance book! Fighting for Love is a contemporary romance and is book two in her Boston Love series.
Finn Ward is a play-boy fire-fighter who does not really finding the right woman, in fact, one woman to settle down with in his near future. His brother may have found that happiness with the love of his life, but Finn hasn’t found that one special woman who can make him see beyond a few hours of fun. That all changes when Finn meets

descriptionY'all. This book.
5 Stars for Finn & Rory.
It's a given that I'll love just about everything Kelly Elliot writes. So, loving this book was about as easy as breathing. The way she writes her characters feels like talking to an old friend, and these two were no different. I really loved the pacing in this book—how REAL it felt.
This book will give you the swoons and the sighs. Fighting for Love is a sweet love story that has already made its way to my re-read pile. It's just that good.
I read the first book in the series and I was glad to see there was more. This was a nice read. The story had me interested to see how it would all play out. Finn is a playboy firefighter and Rory is a lawyer who is solely focused on her job. When these two meet, there is an instant attraction. While Finn would love to get to know Rory more, Rory does her best to avoid him. There are some obstacles that would say this pairing is a bad idea but the chemistry can not be denied. I liked how Finn ch ...more

I absolutely loved and adored Finn and Rory’s story. I was completely swept up in their love :)

Fighting For Love is the second book in Kelly Elliott’s Boston Love Series. These books are standalone novels with interconnecting characters. With this series I believe it is possible to read these books out of order, but it wouldn’t be my suggestion. We see a lot of Preston

I am a huge Kelly Elliott fan and book 1 of this series Searching for Harmony was one of my favorites.

“Finn Ward was my weakness. A desire burning so deep inside of me it was hard to ignore. He was the wrong I knew deep in my heart was my right.”

“I need your touch like the desert needs water.”

Fighting For Love is the second book in the Boston Love Series and follows the story of Finn and Rory. From the moment we meet Finn, he appears to be your typical single playboy. The only thing he loves more than being single is his job as a firefighter. Little did he know that whe

This was my first book by Kelly Elliott, and it was seriously cute. There are some wonderful LOL lines and scenes in this book involving dogs and childbirth and general awkwardness. This is a mostly light and fun book, but the angst around Rory's parents and her sleezo work partner is genuinely hard and a bit heartbreaking. I liked that -- it gave the novel unexpected depth and extra "feels".

I read a lot of romance, and it's hard to find a book that feels really "fresh", but this one did. Rory

Finn Ward is enamoured with Rory Adams and Rory Adams is incredibly attracted to Finn Ward too. However, there are obstacles that get in their way. This book has many different facets involved but the main thing that I love about this book is the way that it focuses on a woman’s love for a man she knows she can’t have.

The forbidden element to this book makes my heart hurt and weigh heavily at time but this book touches my heart. Kelly has a way of making you feel and feel hard for these charact

Every time I start a book by Kelly I wonder what kind of awesome am I going to find. As usual she didn't disappoint.
Rory and Finn's love story was beautiful. Plus it was set in Boston one of my very favorite places.
Rory Adams is such a spitfire when it comes to her work. It's all about work.

"Fighting for Love" is a hilarious read that grabs ya quick and doesn't let ya go until the end. Only read this book if you have time to invest in the whole story ... I couldn't put it down. Read it in one night.

Kelly Elliott's Boston firefighters are something else. They play hard and fast until THE one comes along. Then they fall even harder and dedicate themselves to that person more fiercely than to their first love... being firefighters.

As I sat down to write this review, I went through some of my past reviews for Kelly Elliot. She has written so many of my favorite book boyfriends its crazy. And I don't mean the kind of book boyfriends that you swear you'll love forever and then forget when the next boy comes along. I mean book boyfriends that I think about long after I've finished reading the book. Example number one Gunner Mathews. From the day I read that book, Gunner has had a tight hold on my heart.

Boston is a city I haven't been to yet, and this book has made my travel bug itchy, especially if I came across a firefighter like Finn! He has a lot of qualities we all love in our BBFs, loyalty and trust being right up there. He is someone you can depend upon and trust your life with. He even loves dogs! It is going to take one special woman to curve his player ways, and he feels that Rory is that woman, if only he could get a date with her.

Rory's dad just asks one thing of her. DO NOT DATE A FIREMAN. But wouldn't you know it... the guy who has caught her eye just so happens to be a fireman and also in her father's unit. Oh yeah, and did I mention he's the firehouse manwhore too?

Finn Ward has never felt this way about anyone. When he catches the beautiful brunette's eye at the Firemen's Union Meeting, he has to find out who this woman is.

Un héros pompier, une héroïne avocate, un chien, pas mal de déboires… Kelly Elliott propose une histoire très fraîche et rigolote à qui il manque peut-être un peu d’émotion et des rebondissements plus crédibles. Mais si vous aimez les petites romances très légères qui mettent en scène des héros qui pourraient être vos voisins de palier, n’hésitez pas !

Finn est donc le playboy de sa caserne à Boston. Il séduit tout ce qui bouge et doit presque chasser les femmes à coup de bâtons. Mais un beau jou

I liked Rory I found her adorable, "...then I heard you moan and I thought you were sick, or worse yet that there was a girl in here, and I came in here and you were all spread-eagle on your bed.” I used my arms and spread them wide because for some stupid reason I felt like he needed a demonstration. “Then I saw your . . . your . . . you know.” I pointed at his ***k." I really loved this book, it had so much humor, and it wasn't hard to fall in love with Finn.
