Can't Resist You #1

Born to Fight

Rate this book
America has fallen. The world went dark. Technology, computers, cell phones, they're a distant memory at best. The UNR controls everything within their districts in the East and the West. The people are slaves. But there is hope…

Resistance leader Hunter Kane was trained from birth to be the ultimate soldier. He has one purpose and one purpose alone: take down the UNR. After a near-fatal attack and a narrow escape from death’s door, Hunter finds his world turned upside down. He spent his entire life as a killer. A soldier. A savior? An emotionless robot with one job. But he can’t fight the feeling he gets when he stares into the eyes of the woman who saved his life. He was born to be a fighter, but suddenly, he’s not so sure that’s enough for him. What will Hunter choose when he must decide between his purpose and his heart?

Rain had not seen another human being in two years since she’d stowed herself away in an ancient bunker, content to live out her days in hiding. When when she stumbles upon a man caked in blood and barely breathing, she knows instantly that her entire world is about to change. Rain spent her whole life dreaming of the Resistance only to be thrown into it by the man who started it all, but how will he react when he finds out who she truly is? Rain desperately believes in their cause, and believes in the sparks flying between her and Hunter even more.

Can they really find happiness in this world that's fallen apart, or will Rain's secrets destroy them both and end the Resistance once and for all?

★ 4 “Welcome to the Resistance!” STARS ★

▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬⋆▬

Encontrei este livro por acaso e depois de ler a sinopse, fiquei muito intrigada. Claro que o fato de não ter nenhuma resenha me deixou um pouco receosa... Porém, pensei: ‘Por que não dar uma chance?’
Então, eu dei início a leitura... E sendo completamente honesta, que surpresa maravilhosa!

Fui cativada desde a primeira página!
Os personagens principais são incríveis e eu adorei o Hunter e a Rain!

Ele, membro da Resistência, criado para lutar pelos seus ideias, proteger os que precisam e conquistar a liberdade tão esperada por muitos. Hunter foi um personagem que deixou sua marca, gostei demais dele. Sua força, determinação me encantaram!

Ela, uma mulher reclusa há dois anos. Com um passado doloroso. Sobrevivendo e tentando manter-se segura do perigo que a rodeia. Embora a primeiro momento desconfiada, ao mesmo tempo foi forte, corajosa. Rain foi uma mocinha que me agradou demais, do tipo que eu gosto de ler.

Não teve como não me apaixonar por ambos e torcer por eles! Dois personagens interessantes, carismáticos, intrigantes e bem estruturados.
Embora trágico, eu gostei de como o caminho de ambos se cruzaram. De como criaram um ligação e mesmo com tantas incertezas sobre o futuro, dúvidas e os segredos que guardavam, foram construindo um relacionamento. Foi gostoso acompanhar a trajetória deste casal.

Os personagens secundários foram ótimos e cativantes. Cada um com sua personalidade única despertou minha curiosidade e agora estou bem ansiosa para saber a história de todos e espero muito que encontrem os seus finais felizes.

A história toda é narrada em terceira pessoa, com POVs alternados entre Hunter, Rain e alguns adicionais. Confesso que não sou fã deste estilo, porém, quando bem escrita faz toda a diferença. E aqui aconteceu isso, a narrativa é simples, de fácil entendimento e muito envolvente. A escrita da autora me agradou muito e a leitura seguiu fluida e não encontrei nenhuma dificuldade em manter um ritmo.

Embora tenha curtido muito, ainda achei algumas partes e comportamentos previsíveis, entretanto isso não afetou a minha opinião final de que este foi um ótimo livro sim. O enredo é interessante, bem elaborado e cativante. Em diversos momentos eu não sabia para que rumo a trama seguiria e isso me prendeu demais à leitura. Foi realmente uma grata surpresa, ainda mais que ultimamente nada tem me agradado, este livro teve o diferencial que eu buscava nas leituras passadas!

Mal posso esperar para ler os próximos livros desta série e descobir como a história central se desenrolará, assim como cada personagem terá o seu merecido destaque!

Adorei e recomendo muito! 💖💖

Born to Fight is the first book in the Can’t Resist You series by Brittany Anne. This story took me by surprise I must say. I knew from the synopsis that I would like the book, but I didn’t expect it to be quite as fascinating as it turned out to be. This is a Sci-fi story with a definite apocalyptic and dystopian theme. It’s an action-packed adventure full of drama, danger, suspense, some mystery, passion, secrets, sparks, sizzle, heat, and hope. I read the book in an afternoon, glued to the pages to discover how it all plays out. I didn’t want to put it down until I’d read every last word. That’s how much the story gripped me.
Rain has been on her own, in an old abandoned bunker she’s turned into her home, for the past two years. She has her routine and she’s content to stay right where she is, where she feels safe. Her world changes in an instant when she goes to the river one day, only to discover an unconscious and badly wounded man, barely alive. She can’t leave him to die, so she drags him back to her bunker, tends to his wounds and begins nursing him back to health. But as time goes on, she begins to wonder if it was the smartest thing to do, as she’s exposed herself now and placed herself at risk- she doesn’t know a thing about him, he could be the enemy for all she knows.
Hunter Kane is one of the leaders of the Resistance- was born to be a fighter, but had no choice really. With the world the way it was, people depended on him to keep them safe, so he did what he’d been trained to do, fight for the cause- to win back his world. When a mission goes wrong, Hunter is badly wounded, and left for dead. He thinks his time is up, so he’s quite surprised when he wakes up many days later with a beautiful woman tending to him. He’s immediately drawn to her, and as he recovers he begins to imagine what life might be like if he didn’t have all the responsibility and expectation on him. But he has people depending on him, and all he’s ever known is the ‘fight’. He doesn’t need the distraction of a relationship. Plus, he knows she’s keeping secrets and wonders what they might be. What happens when he discovers what her secrets are, and who she really is? When danger finds them, what will they do? Do these two have any chance of finding happiness in a war-torn and dangerous world? Will Rain find somewhere she finally belongs? You really should read all the exciting developments for yourself, you are sure to love it as much as I have!
This really was a fantastic read! It was exciting, steamy and emotional- with heartbreaking details, touching and tender scenes, sweet and romantic moments, and edge-of-your-seat-suspense…. that all blended into an entirely addictive story.
This is told from multiple POV’s, so the reader really gets an immersive reading experience, getting the ‘full’ picture of what’s been, or is, going on. There are some flashbacks that help to build the backstory and to also set the stage for the main ‘events’. The story has a fast pace and a smooth flow, making it an easy read.
I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book/s in this series, because if this book was anything to go by, the rest of the series is set to be incredible!

Thank you, Brittany Anne!

Born to Fight (Can't Resist You, #1) by Brittany Anne was a raw, too real, feels gripping, post-apocalyptic read, that had me hooked from start to finish.

Wow what a read! My first read by this author and I am impressed, more than impressed I just found a treasure and I need more. This sci-fi dystopian read is unique, original and it is hooking. The tone, and writing rhythm has a oomph that instantly pulls you into the story. It's been awhile since a dystopian has hooked me like this, and it has rekindled a lost love that I didn't know was gone.

Told in multi POV we get this tale from both our MC's, and seeing it that way, especially this type of romance, really adds na extra layer of realism, and gets you more connected to this characters. There is a weird magic about it, and frankly I believe that all romance no matter what genre should be told in dual POV. It's proven in the way this story was executed.

Now outside of the love plot the world building was pretty freaking cool. It paints a devastating picture of what could happen if we lose our insta world connecting, electricity and satellites. It makes you feel the dread, and adds a very dark and gritty element, making the love plot that much more raw and compelling.

Overall this book is a must read, it has everything you've been wanting in a, or better yet it has everything you didn't know you wanted in a post-apocalyptic romance, that may be doomed before it even starts. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval that you will not be able to put this book down once you start.

Happy Reading

Oooohhhh!!!! I am going to love, love, love, this series!! Everything from the gorgeous cover to the tantalizing story on the pages behind it was perfect. I had never read anything from Brittany Anne before, but I can promise it will not be my last. I am impatiently waiting for the next installment in this series now, and I do believe I will be checking out her other novel(s) in the meantime.

Now I will say, a few years ago you would not have found me reading a dystopian or post-apocalyptic novel, ever. I am so happy I have branched out. I really have discovered some amazing new authors and a few rare gems that I would have missed out on. “Born to Fight” is definitely one of those.

There is a lot going on in this story, but never once was I overwhelmed with anything. It was told with grace and precision and flowed beautifully. I was gripped by the action and well engrossed with the multi-layer storylines. I also enjoyed the fact that it was written in a multi-point of view as well.

Rain is strong and independent. She has to be after spending two years alone and fending for herself in a bunker. One day everything she knows is turned upside down when she stumbles upon a badly injured man by the river near her bunker. She finds out that he is in dire need and feels that she must take him back to her bunker and help tend to him.

Hunter is the wounded man’s name. As he heals and the two begin to know each other they both begin to feel something for each other. There just happens to be a few problems here with that. Hunter shouldn’t feel anything for anyone let alone Rain. Rain has some secrets that she is keeping and it could put them both at risk. What will happen when they find themselves in the face of danger? When secrets are revealed? Can either of them find happiness? Will it be with each other? I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book!

Born to Fight (Can't Resist You Book 1)
By: Brittany Anne
5 out of 5 stars

The story Born to Fight (Can't Resist You Book 1) by Brittany Anne is a military romance book. It is a story that caught my attention from the very beginning and I found myself not able to put it down until I had finished it. It is a story that has moments of suspense that had me wondering what was going to happen next. I loved reading about the characters of Hunter Kane and Rain. Hunter is a resistance fighter. That is what he has always been trained to be. He has never thought of being anything or anyone else. That is until he meets Rain. Rain is a woman in hiding. She is also caring and compassionate as when Hunter needs her help despite knowing nothing about him she takes care of him. Hunter is finding that Rain is changing the plans that he once had no question of. Rain is a woman that has a secret. When and if that secret is revealed will it spell the end for Rain and Hunter? The Resistance opposes the UNR, a group that she shown themselves to not value lives and have their own agenda. On a mission that will have the Resistance fighting the UNR who will prevail? Will the Resistance meet its match and meet their end? What will happen with Hunter and Rain? Will they find themselves planning their future together? Read this book to find out. The emotions and sparks between Hunter and Rain are high and the way that they kiss is electric. I grew to love them with each chapter that I read and I was rooting for them. I wanted them to be happy. I enjoyed reading about the background information that is given and also about the other characters that you are introduced to. This is a wonderfully written story with amazing characters. It is a book that I would recommend reading.

This book blew me away, literally right from the beginning. I got into it right away, it was too hard not to in all honesty. I was captivated by the surrounding world of the the main characters, and as well as the characters themselves. It was realistic and believable truly, the plot I mean, but what I really loved was how the author chose to write this engaging story. I was highly impressed and sucked in!

I too well am able to imagine the vivid world Rain has to live in. I loved her strength and she was very admirable in more ways than one. She learned to survive, and do what she must in her hide out in her bunker. She was her own solider and she fought to live, for herself, for a better future, and for now all she had was enough for her. Throw in a injured shoulder, named Hunter now. He was hurt. He was behind the fallen world that she was stuck to live and live the way she has to. I believe to her she wanted to end his life as he ended many, but part of her saw him as a human, and she did not want to be a killer.

Hunter was a man, yes a solider behind everything the world was facing. He had his own faults with that. Between the UNR and The Resistance things got deadly as I would say. Things happened and the world basically shut down and end up in flames. Rain does help Hunter, but is the passionate chemistry they both are sharing more than either of them bargained for? The chemistry as well as the darkness to both these characters literally left me hooked. I was compelled to keep on reading and wondering where the story would lead to! There was a a lot of parts that brought on a mysterious interesting read!

The writing was amazing, and really easy to follow and get into. I really enjoyed reading about the personalities and who Rain and Hunter each were. I learned many things about both of them, and the story was so easily too get hooked into, I could not put it down. It was that good. I think if your looking for a fast paced and addictive read, please check out this very much talented author's writing!

Born to Fight is the exciting start to the Can’t Resist You series by Brittany Anne. This book can be read as a standalone. This isn’t generally a genre that I get into. But after reading the synopsis I knew that I had to read it. After starting this book I was hooked. I loved this book so much. There was a slight issue that I had but it was easily forgiven. This book was an exciting read and a great start to a series.

I really enjoyed Born to Fight. The characters themselves were my favorite part of this book. After reading the first pages I wanted to know more about Hunter and Rain. Each glimpse into the past was bittersweet. It was nice to know their backgrounds, but for the most part, their pasts were heartbreaking. By the end, I was rooting for them. I enjoyed the secondary characters. The secondary characters are all so colorful and realistic. They added so much depth to this book.

My only real issue with this book was some lack of background. There is a little background on the fall and the beginning of the resistance. After reading this there are so many questions that still need to be answered. I didn’t care for the lack of background. I also understand with Born to Fight to be part of a series all questions are not going to be answered in one book.

Born to Fight is a solid start to a new series. While the genre isn’t what I generally would pick out to read, Born to Fight sucked me in until the very end. I had to know what was going to happen next. I am so happy that I took the chance on this book because it paid off. Born to Fight was a true adventure and I am so excited to read the other books in the series!

Born to Fight is the first book in the Can’t Resist You series. The main story can be read as a standalone. The epilogue leaves things open for subsequent stories.

A resistance fighter and a woman on the run, what could possibly go wrong? Everything. When Hunter is faced with death, he is saved by a stranger. He has lived his life fighting and relationships have been low to non-existent on his priority list, but the woman who saved him stirs up emotions he didn’t know he could still feel. At a crucial time in the Resistance movement, Hunter is losing focus.

Rain has been in solitude for two years, thankful to be alive. She takes a big risk when she finds a man near death and decides to help him. When she learns about who he is, she wants to be honest with him about who she is, but she doesn’t want to risk being sent back to her past life. She’d do anything to avoid that, including lie to the man she is falling in love with. Her lies may destroy everything Hunter has sacrificed everything for.

The only thing about this story that was a bit vague is what the motivation for the Fall is. The story starts after it has already happened, but it isn’t clear on what the catalyst was that initiated the conflict. I’m guessing this may be talked about more in the stories that follow.

Born to Fight has secrets, danger, love, betrayal, adventure, and a happy (but ill-timed) surprise around Chapter 13. As mentioned in the synopsis, this book is definitely intended for adult readers. If you are triggered by violence against women, this might not be the book for you; otherwise, get a cup of tea and settle in!

I can’t help but absolutely fall for this genre. I love the idea of fighting the odds to hopefully be with the one that you love. Rain and Hunter have both had their ups and downs, which make them the people that they are today. They are doing their very best to live their best lives in a world that has come to be a place you aren’t safe and are watching your back every step of the way. The UNR are the bad guys, wanting to regulate the lives of everyone, and have no intentions backing down, rather, are gearing up their antics. Their leader, Alan, is an unforgiving, abusive wannabe alpha male that wants all those in the UNR districts to see him as the end all and be all, regardless of what it takes. Hunter is the head fighter of the Resistance, also known as the good guys, and wants to bring down the UNR, no matter what it takes. The boys of the Resistance aren’t known for their wanton for love, family, or anything else besides taking down the enemy. Time will tell if this will be the case moving forward, dig in!

Overall, this book was a fantastic read. I’m a huge fan of the dystopian setting, and quite enjoyed the love story that followed Rain and Hunter, and a teaser of who is to follow in the next installment. I did find it a little predictable at times and found that the flashbacks caused me some confusion. I would recommend this book to others that are a fan of this genre, as it was quite the enjoyable way to pass the time! Thank you, Brittany Anne, looking forward to reading more!

Born to Fight (Can’t Resist You Book 1) by Brittany Anne
4 of 5 Stars
This is an enjoyable and engaging dystopian romance set in a world which has gone dark and in which America has fallen. Technology no longer works and mobile phones are just a distant memory, the UNR controls everything and people are slaves. Within this world our main characters Hunter and Rain are thrown together when Rain saves Hunter’s life. Despite their instant chemistry and the romance that develops between them, they both have secrets. Hunter Kane is a leader for the Resistance who has been trained to be the ultimate soldier and take down the UNR. Meanwhile Rain had been hiding in a bunker and had not seen another person for two years when she found Hunter barely alive, but couldn’t leave him to die.
Rain believes in the Resistance and has dreamed of them for years hoping they were real but she’s worried how Hunter will react when he discovers who she really is. The author has done a wonderful job of world building and her descriptive narrative really brings the dystopian world that Hunter and Rain find themselves in to life. I felt totally immersed in their story and could visualise their world which made me feel engaged with them. Hunter and Rain are great main characters, likeable and relatable and the chemistry between them was instant and led to some steamy scenes. This was a gripping page turner that had me hook from page one, and as it’s book one in a series I look forward to book two.

I went in to this story unsure, but the synopsis had me curious so had to give it a try. It happened in the first chapter...I was hooked. It didn't take long to fall in love with the writing style of this author and I could not put this book down. It was fast moving and kept my attention throughout.

This is a new author to me and I can not wait for the 2nd of this series and am so excited to find out who the next story will be about, I have a feeling who it might be but then afraid that is too obvious lol

I love the story that is building and am really afraid of the future and what is still to come for these people of the Resistance, I don't normally read dystopian novels because they are sometimes way out there or hard to imagine but recently I've read a couple, this one included where it feels a little more real and is a bit scary yet so fascinating I can't stop reading. The way the flashbacks were done was simply spot on, this is something I normally do not enjoy but in this one it worked perfectly. Hunter and Rain were amazing characters that I fell in love with immediately and the secondary characters have me completely hooked so can not wait for each of them to get their own story.

This was an awesome read and I was able to read it in one sitting and I highly recommend it!

Welcome to the Resistance!

Loved It!!

Born To Fight is the first book in the Can’t Resist You series by Brittany Anne. I had never read any of this author’s work before and after reading Born To Fight I’ll definitely be reading more.
Born To Fight is the story of Hunter and Rain who are thrown together when Rain saves Hunter’s life after a brutal attack from enemy forces. Hunter is the leader of the resistance who are trying to take back power from the UNR who are in control of the USA.
The chemistry between Hunter and Rain is instant. Rain has lived in a bunker alone for 2 years after escaping from her brutal husband, the leader of the UNR. Rain keeps her identity a secret as she’s scared of what would happen if the resistance knew her true identity.
This story had me gripped from the very first page and continued to keep me gripped right up to the very end. There are so many twists and turns, just when you think you know what’s going to happen, the author shocks you and takes you on a different journey.
Both Hunter and Rain are very strong characters and have suffered so much adversity in their lives. You really can’t help rooting for them and hoping that they will get their happily ever after.
Having thoroughly enjoyed Born To Fight, I’m really looking forward to see what the next instalment in this series brings

4 stars

I really, really enjoyed this book! When I first looked at the blurb I honestly wasn’t sure what kind of read I was in for so I was intrigued and that intrigue paid off, it was a very, good read and a great introduction to a new to me author. I’ve read a few sci-fi books however it is still a genre that is quite new to me. Born to Fight dragged me in almost straight away, the authors writing style was engaging and her descriptive language particularly good. There was a good mix of genres really in the story and everything melded together really well. The author used multiple points of view to tell the story which I’ll be honest I love! I love seeing things from different characters perspectives and I felt like I really knew the characters, Hunter and Rain really well. There were some good twists and turns in the story that definitely meant my interest was kept form beginning to end. It was nice to read something a little different and also something I found unpredictable.
I am definitely looking forward to reading more from this author again in the future.

My first book by Brittany Anne and what a great start to the Can’t Resist You series! The opening scene sets the stage, proving how evil and wrong, the group called UNR, really is.

The story line is set for after the fall of America and life as we know it. UNR is a group of power-hungry, evil people bent on destroying and enslaving any one against them. The Resistance is the group of people, hiding from the UNR because they are against everything the UNR believes in. The Resistance will fight to make things right while freeing mankind.

Rain is our main female character. Rain has a secret but after being completely alone for 2 years she doesn’t know who to trust or what to believe. Hunter is our main male character. He is one of the leaders of the Resistance. When Hunter is left for dead and Rain finds him and nurses him back to life, they both begin to hope for a different future. The only question is, can their future be better together? Or will her secret destroy everything.

I liked this story. It was easy to read and follow. The characters, even the secondary ones, were sassy, smart and likeable. I truly hope the rest of this series is just as good.

Born to Fight (Can't Resist You #1) by Brittany Anne

This is the first book I've read by Anne. As my first dystopian book I've got to say that I'll be back. Anne has a way of sucking in you into the world she creates.

Rain has been hiding for years. She doesn't know why she's helping the man, but she was being nice. Now his wounds are healed. She's falling for him. The quote I chose for Rain is: “I’ve been cleaning your wounds twice daily for a week now. I’ve been giving you antibiotics, both in the crushed pills and in an ointment I’ve been putting on your wounds. You seem to like the broth more than water, so I’m glad I started giving you that a few days ago. I’m glad you like it.”

Hunter is working far from home. He hears someone calling for help, but when he goes to help she starts screaming worse. He then gets hurt and wakes up in a small house. The quote I chose for Hunter is: “I’m sorry, Sawyer, but I’m not taking those two. This mission is easy, yes, but it’s far. I’m not spending weeks with those two idiots just because you say so.”

Highly recommended for Dystopian Romance lovers.

Born to Fight is the first book in the Can’t Resist You series by Brittany Anne. This is my first novel by this author.

Rain lives in an a bunker alone and quite content with her routine for the past two years until she helps a man who is bloody and in need of medical attention.

Hunter Kane, a Resistance soldier is hurt while trying to protect a women from being attacked. When unconscious for a few days, her voice pierced through his thoughts and makes him to want to wake up to see her.

After nursing him back to health, Rain, feels a bond with Hunter but both don’t want to get to close to each other for different reasons. Can Hunter, the soldier born to kill find something he wants more or will Rain’s secret tear them apart.

I didn’t think I was going to like the dystopian setting but I really enjoyed the dark and gritty world it was set in.

I loved the characters and how the story unfolds and the secrets the main characters were hiding.

I hope the next story is Kayla and Sawyer. Definitely felt some chemistry there.

Born to Fight (Can’t Resist You Book 1) by Brittany Anne

Born to Fight is the first book in the Can’t Resist You Series by Brittany Anne. First off I absolutely love the cover and second I was expecting something completely different than what I got. I was pulled in from the beginning and found myself on the edge of my seat throughout this whole book. It’s a bit intense in some parts but very well written. This is a story about Hunter and Rain. Hunter is the Leader of Resistance and he wants to take down the UNR. Rain has been on her own the last couple of years and living in a bunker in the woods trying to stay hidden in hopes they don’t find her.

This romantic, dystopia novel reminded me a lot of a t.v. show I used to watch called “Revolution”. The world finds itself divided with evil people (the UNR) running the country, “soldiers” that become the revolution, and living to survive only. Hunter, one of the leaders of the revolution, is marching in his father’s foot, steps and trying to bring freedom back to the people. While trying to save a woman, from the UNR, he becomes badly injured. While unconscious, he is found by a lone woman, named Rain, who takes him to her bunker to care for him. Not knowing why she is taking care of this stranger, she remembers how it feels to be around another person, since it has been 2 years. Throughout their journey, they each allow the other to enhance their weakness - Hunter’s is stone emotions and Rain’s is trust. I really enjoyed the first of two books in this series. I love watching the characters grow, the struggles they overcome, and the ambition to make it all worth it. Can’t wait till I can read the second one!

An unforgettable Dystopian romance. This book had me hooked. Between the world building and the budding romance I could not put this book down. I loved the characters and their will to fight back against those who would take everyone's free will or kill them.

Rain has been living in hiding and isolation for 2 years until one day she stumbles upon a dying man. She could leave him where she found him. It would be safer for her, but her good heart will not allow that.

The man she saved is none other than Hunter Kane. The leader of the Resistance. A group of people who have dedicated their lives to taking down the tryanny that caused America to fall. They rule and control everything. They are the UNR.

Since meeting Hunter, Rain for the first time has hope that her life can be more than one of solitary confinement. Meanwhile, Hunter begins to wonder if he can have the chance to be more than just a Resistance soldier. The two have an undeniable instant connection, but between secrets and the UNR they may not stand a chance.

This is a beautiful romance story with an apocalypse twist. This is book 1 in the Can't Resist You Series and I loved it.The author does an amazing job of bringing the story to life, making every scene realistic and believable.

Hunter has been born and raised to fight. To protect people from an evil that is destroying the world. As Leader of the Resistance his main thought is to serve and protect. Love was never on his radar.

Until one mission leaves him almost dead and the arrival of an angel in his life turns his world upside down.

Rain is a survivor. She has lived for years on her own in a bunker. Protected from the world and the forces working to destroy it. She keeps to herself until she finds a man almost dead. She knows she can't leave him alone to die so she saves him.

As they spend time together and Hunter recovers the feelings between them grow but both of them are hiding secrets

The question is what secrets are they hiding and will the secrets Rain hides be the thing that destroys the love between her and Hunter?

If you are looking for a good dystopian book, with a rebel cause and a steamy love story this is the book for you! Born to fight is the first book in the ‘Can’t resist you’ series! Rain has been living alone for two years escaping a past that is hunting her down but when she meets hunter bloody, bruised and barley breathing she knows she must do something to save him. Hunter is the leader of a resistance; the very thing Rain has always wanted to believe in but had lost all hope for. While Hunter is in a coma like state, he hears her talking, singing, and feels her taking care of him. Once he awakes, he realizes what had happen he is in awe of her but knows that he is in a position that is much bigger than the sparks flying between them. They both have a past to overcome but the big question is can they??
I fell head over heels for this book, the characters were great, the growth and development they showed really comes out in this book! I think Brittany Anne did a brilliant job with this and I am so excited to see what else is to come with this series!

What an amazing first book! If the first book is any indication of this series, this is going to be an amazing series.

The United States fell and is now under the control of the UNR. The UNR controls everything within its borders. That is everything except The Resistance. Hunter Kane was born to a soldier, a former SEAL. His father trained him to be a soldier in every aspect from birth. As one of the leaders of The Resistance, his mission is to take out the UNR starting at the top with Governor Allan. That is until he tries to save a woman and gets attacked by UNR soldiers and left for dead.

Rain ran away from hell two years ago. She escaped a controlling father and a controlling and abusive husband. She found a bunker and has been hiding out. One day trying to get some water from the river she finds a man left for dead. Using all of her strength, she brings him back to her bunker to try and save him.

Little do they both know that they each hold a key to the other’s destiny.

Born to Fight (Can’t Resist You Book 1) by Brittany Anne. This is a great book and I can't wait to read the next one. It can be read as a standalone but like I said I'm looking forward to the next one! Its the story of Hunter Kane during a time when the United States has fallen and is now under control of the UNR. The UNR controls everything and what they say goes. Hunter is a resistance fighter is set to be killed for his fighting a stranger saves him. Hunter has lived his life without relationships with women because he just hasn't had time but this woman causes those feelings to come out. He learns Anna has escaped and has been in hiding for 2 years. She couldn't let him die though so she did what she had to do, she saved him. She wants to be honest with him but she doesn't want to get sent back to her old life. Hunter decides he wants to do anything he can to help her but could her lies get them both killed? This is a great book to keep you turning pages as fast as you can!

Born to Fight book 1 by Brittany Anne is a dystopian themed romance novel. When Hunter, a leader of the Resistance movement makes a last minute decision to risk his life taking on 3 UNR soldiers to save a woman being attacked, it proves to be a mistake...but maybe it is fate.

Hunter's injuries are too much for him to fight through, and he collapses, ready for death, near a river to be found by Rain. Rain has a hard decision of her own to make. It's been 2 years since she escaped her tormentor and has been hiding on her own. Does she take a chance on the stranger lying near death at the river near her bunker, or leave him to surely die? She decides to haul him back, and spends a long time nursing his unconscious form before he is healed enough to come around.

The rest of the story shows the build of their relationship in the midst of a dangerous world. Will Rain and Hunter be able to trust each other? Will they be together, or is there too much at risk?

Born To Fight is the first book in the Can’t Resist You series by Brittany Anne.

The story is set in a post-apocalyptic world, nothing is as we know it now, and the presence of good and evil is very real.
Rain has lived alone for two years. When she comes across an injured man she knows she cannot leave him to die, but worries about her vulnerable position. Taking Hunter in turns out to be a life-changing decision, as she nurses him back to health they get to know each other, although both know that the other person has more secrets to tell.

I really enjoyed this story, Rain and Hunter are a sweet couple with lots of chemistry. There are also lots of other strong supporting characters which help to bring the story to life. I enjoyed that the story was told from different points of view so that, as the reader, I got the full story and range of emotions. I’m looking forward to seeing how the series develops.

Hunter is a man and exactly as his name implies a hunter. Well a solider to be more exact. He was raised to be a warrior for the resistance. From what I could gather it’s against the UNR after the fall of Western Civilization. Although we never really find out why they are resisting and why the fall occurs.
Rain has escaped and finds Hunter at deaths doorstep. She saves him and lies to him. She doesn’t want to be sent back, but her lies could cause trouble for Hunter. This just seems like a really contrived character flaw and I really feel it could have been a written a little more eloquently.
There are some extremely erotic scenes and some extremely aggressive scenes. It makes the book in part confusing yet steamy and part emotional yet grating. In the end I was very confused about how I felt about this book. I think I will give it a second chance though and re read it, because the premise of the story itself is really interesting.
