As a teenager I learned firsthand how untrustworthy and cruel a woman could be. She destroyed me from the inside out and took everything from me. The first chance I got, I ran, and have been running from my past ever since.

Until I met Hayley.
She's a complete game changer.
She's everything I never thought a woman could be.
She's honest and sincere and completely selfless

I have been waiting for what feels like forever for Calebs story! To finally hear what he keeps locked up so tight inside.
And OH MY GOSH, Nikki Ash did NOT disappoint at all with this one. I was absolutely blown away, holding my breath and in tears for him throughout the whole story.
And Hayley I've seriously waited for her to get her crush since book one. I was like cheering for her! I love her character so much, and to see her finally give up and back off was just sad. But for her to finally g

For the last week or so, I’ve been hooked on the Fighting Series! These characters are captivating and Caleb was without a doubt a hero I wanted to discover more about. Since the start of the series, he’s been an enigma that I wanted to solve. He’s really closed off and I couldn’t wait to see the development of his romance with Hayley. Nikki Ash captured my heart wholly with Fighting for your Touch. This heartfelt story that gave me all the feels! Not only Caleb

My Review

My thanks go to the author for this advanced reader copy.

I've read the previous books in the series and enjoyed them, so i was really looking forward to reading this installment. It did not disappoint and I have to say that I think this is the best one yet.

In the previous books there were hints that there was more than meets the eye with Caleb and now we find out why he's so aloof and standoffish with Hayley.

Hayley really likes

Nikki Ash is quickly becoming one of my automatic go to authors!
I was so excited for Caleb and Haylie's book. I had a feeling it was going to be highly emotional, and boy was it ever. We start out meeting teenage Caleb. He's angry, with every right to be. He finally has had enough of a terrible home life, and walks out leaving everything he's ever known behind. Fast forward to to the present and Caleb meets Haylie when she starts working as the resident doctor

I received an arc copy of this book in return for nothing but an honest review.

This is the third book in this series and i have to say i think it is also the best!!

We have been introduced to Caleb in the first two books and i really needed to know more, this man is so deep you just know there is so much to his story. Haley has had a crush on Caleb for so long but would he ever open up? He’s a loner and really doesn’t share much of himself and it takes a sweet little boy

This book was really good. I read it as a stand alone with out reading the first 2 with no difficulty.

Meeting Caleb was gut wrenching with emotion. The life he had, the life he lives not wanting to rely on anyone because they lie or leave or both. Especially women. Hayley has the patience of a saint as far as I can tell. She knows what she wants and she waits patiently, sort of, for things to work themselves out. They have a great circle of friends as well!

I love the dynamics of the relationshi

Nikki Ash has been one of my favorite Authors since I started reading her books! I love her stories, and how she brings the characters to life! She makes you feel like you are a part of their story. And Nikki also brings back all the characters from the previous book, so you can keep up with how they are doing.

These are the types of stories that I love and where I get the attitude of...NOT wanting to be bothered by anyone! NO! I am NOT cooking tonight, nor cleaning! Fend for yourselves! And if I

How the hell Caleb is still a fully functioning human being is beyond me. After going through what he did as a teenager...WOW. And then to go on and become the caring, kind and compassionate man he is, well he could just about be my hero!

This book for me broke my heart over and over and over again, and at some points I had to put it down and just take a second. It seemed no matter how much Caleb and Halyey fought just to be together and build a life with love and laughter, someone was always wai

Caleb has to be me favorite so far out of the books in the series.I felt bad for Hayley and Caleb in the book. Hayley crushed on Caleb and made her feelings known , but Caleb couldn't reciprocate because of secrets from his past. As the book goes on and Caleb is able to let his guard down ,his and Hayley's chemistry together will burn your kindles it is so hot. I liked how we get caught up with the characters from the first 2 books. The characters all get along like they are family even though t ...more

I absolutely loved this book! The way the second book ended I couldn't wait until this book came out, I had to know what happened to Caleb. When the whole series is out I'm definitely going to binge read it again. I love the way Nikki writes, I will definitely read anything she writes.

Caleb has been through so much! He was pulling at my heart strings from the first chapter! Hayley was such a great and selfless woman. I could tell you more but you just need to read it so you feel it!

This book has so much heart! It had healing, love , pain and fun all packed into one story. Each new book in this series has just exceeded my expectations.

I am sad that I have a few more the before I can read the next book. I have definitely found a new one click author!

Since I read the first book in this series, I've been in love with this author. I am in love with characters in her her books and the chemistry the all have. Caleb and haley's story was nothing short of that.

Caleb had a hard life as a teenager and in turn that mad him not trust woman and steer clear of them.

Haley has had a crush on Caleb ever since she first saw him but she has stopped making advancements at him because he just doesn't want her.

Caleb is a broken man. And he's an MMA fighter. He's been through hell and back and nobody should ever have to see the darkness that he has seen. It takes somebody really special and selfless to bring him back into the light where he belongs. That person was Hayley. Tired of always being pushed away, she accepts a platonic relationship with Caleb but that doesn't stop her from wanting him. There are so many twists and turns in this book, I couldn't pu

Fighting for your touch man did Caleb story tug at my heart! What he went through as a teenager and losing his mom and sister!!! We met Caleb In the first book fighting for a second chance. He's friend with cooper and Bentley we met them in them in first book also! In this book we get more into calebs past and we see why he acts the way he does with women and than we meet Hayley and this might be the woman to change his ways!

Fighting for Your Touch by: Nikki Ash

I have been waiting for this book and was not disappointed. Caleb has always been my favorite and knew his story was going to different than the rest. I have loved everything I have read so far by Nikki and will continue to read her books. She is amazing and makes you feel like you are a part of the story. You will fall in love with the characters and not want their story to end and Thank God, we get to keep following them all throughout the

Nikki Ash writes one incredible story filled with heart wrenching moments! In Fighting for your Touch, Ash finally gives us Hayley and Caleb’s story. We originally met them in the beginning of the Fighting series as friends of both Liz and Cooper in Fighting for a Second Chance. We got even closer to Caleb in Ash’s second book, Fighting with Faith when he became the trustworthy guy pal to Kayla. To say I’ve been waiting to find out what makes Caleb tick would be an understatement. From the begin ...more

OH what a storyline this book has. It’s so touching and heartwarming that it just reached down and grabbed ahold of my heart and refused to let go. The author has done an amazing job of creating characters that you just want to grab in a big hug and let them know it’s going to be ok. Characters that seem so true to life that you can’t help but feel like you know them personally.

Caleb is an amazing caring man that has had so much heaped on him starting at the young age of fifteen that it’s no wo

I've enjoyed the other books In this series and I was looking forward to reading Caleb's story as I always felt there was to his story than we knew.
From the start we are thrown back into his past and it broke my heart and made me angry in equal measure. Hayley is intriqued by Caleb and would love to get to know him better but for some reason he treats her like an afterthought as if she doesn't really matter, so she decides to move on its just a pity no one told her heart. Then something happens

Heart-warming story!

Everytime my book hero or heroine gets their vindication and the bad guys get their comeuppance, I feel like the world is such a better place. Now, just because the wrong has been made right, that doesn't mean that the battle is over. There are still wounds that need to heal. And the battle will never be easy.

Prepare yourself for a bumpy ride with this story, as there could be triggers or something. I figure this is not the kind of story that is easy to write about, but the e

Hot and sexy. Loved Caleb and Hayley.

I am addicted to this series! I have only read a couple of books that take place in the fighting world, but this group of friends is totally binge-worthy. What is really interesting is how the stories overlap. While this series is about a group of people, there are just a few overlapping plot points from one story to the next. While you don't have to have read the first books to understand this one, I'd recommend it just because they were good stories an

4.5 stars! This book is Caleb and Hayley's story. Caleb is a character you just want to know more about. Caleb is quite, mysterious and a loner. I found out really quick that Caleb does not trust women which stems from his childhood. Hayley has had a crush on Caleb for a while. After, some spilled coffee and another man moving onto Haylee, Caleb realizes he wants to try for more than just friends. Its not easy for Caleb to let go of his past.
I was really glad to get more of the other characters

First off, this is book three in a The Fighting Series but you certainly don't need to read books one and two to follow along in this book. That being said, I plan on reading books one and two because the author did an excellent job in researching details for this book. It's a quality read. I won't give spoilers because you need to get this book and it's Kindle Unlimited so it's basically a free read.

Review by Country Gals BOOK Blog

Caleb has struggled to move on from his horrendous past. But no matter how hard he tries, Hayley affects him more than he'd like to admit. She's a woman and she can't be trusted, right? Hayley has decided to move on from her fantasy of anything happening with Caleb. But when the unexpected happens, can she come out unscathed or will she forever be Pinon for the one man she could never have?

Hayley and Caleb's story spins off

They say love conquers all. But is it really that simple? Is it always enough?

Caleb has some deep seeded trust issues, and when you find out the core cause of them, you won't blame him for a second. This is more than a boy scorned. I actually wanted to give him a hug. The only women he trusts are his two best friends' significant others. No other woman is to be trusted.

That is, until Hayley changes the game. But Caleb has no idea how deep his issues actually go. Something so terrible he's afraid

5 fabulous stars!!! I LOVE this ENTIRE series. It is hard to get 5 stars on every book in a series but Nikki has done it. This series is phenomenal!!

This is Book 3 of the "Fighting" series. It can be read as a stand alone but, seeing as each of these books was a 5 star review, I advise against it!!

This is Hayley and Caleb's love story...

Hayley has been crushing on Caleb for awhile but for some reason he just doesn't feel the same way. She has her dream job, a beautiful house, but she is so lonel
