I didnt expect to be so overwhelmed with this story.
The journey of Titan, January and Cade was very emotional and heartbreaking yet raw and tough.
The authors writing was gripping and totally arrested my interest and the characters were developed with depth.
This story was full love, hope, friendship, strength, loss, and redemption.
It was a great book!!!

This is a must-read I just did not want to stop reading you just cannot help but feel for Cade and January they have both been through so much. I love a good second chance romance and this one was really good get comfy because once you start you won't want to put it down.

"Yeah, baby girl, I'm a cop. Too damned bad it doesn't change a fucking thing. I'm still the monster at the end of this book. Only this one doesn't end happy like the storybook I used to read you, sweetheart. Not for me and not for you either."

This is another author that looks familiar, but I'm not totally sure if I've read anything prior to now. Regardless, between the hottie on the cover and the blurb, I couldn't deny it snagged my attention. I'm usually into the guys on the other side of

TLDR: I laughed. I cried. I loved it.

I started this wanting something real after reading a bunch of fantasy books. At the time I was looking for something a little lighter, but Im glad I chose this one! I love books that make me feel all the feels.

Its one of my favorite things when a book can make me laugh out loud or cry actual tears - and this book did both. The love between the January and Cade and that they have for their families. Its special.

I wasnt sure how they would resolve some of
3 stars..... Flashbacks Galore

KU.....March 2020

The Idea of the story was both interesting and promising, however, it lacked in execution. The majority of their "love story" took place in flashbacks ranging from 5 and 7 yrs of age through January in her senior year of high school and Cade in college. I love being able to watch my characters fall in love. and while I definitely felt the bonds of friendship; I just didn't feel the love. For the most part, I think all the time travel hindered that

He will protect her not matter what it takes, even if this cop has to break the law to do it!

Fight for You is the first book in the A Warrior for Her series and is the story of Michael Kincaid, aka Cade, and January James. Their story definitely packs a huge emotional punch to the solar plexus as you are reading it. Once I started reading I could not put this book down and just devoured it, along with more than a few tissues.
I don't want to give anything away as if you decide to pick this book

I genuinely couldnt put this book down guys! Im normally a 2 or 3 books at a time kind of reader, but Cade and Januarys story grabbed my attention and I couldnt put it down until I read. Every. Word. I felt every emotion with these characters. From the fun and funny to the terrifying and sad. And I cried. Hard ugly tears at a few points. This author did amazing and only made me want to read even more of her books! ...more
Great characters that will keep your interest extremely well.
I'm not going to go into detail, no spoilers just read the book if you are even mildly intrigued by the blurb. You'll thank me later!

The chemistry, sweetness, and twists in plot kept things interesting. Add in drama and passion and you have a good read.

[1.25 star] don't really like the book, constant switch between past and present. i skim the past & read the present only. also, i think there are some repetition. towards the end of the book, i was just skimming as i was bored already.

So, this is a pretty emotional ride. The writing is amazing. You really do hurt for them. But, man did it drag. Like, the whole thing is just sad and broken. It was a bit too much.

January and Michael are well suited, and it would seem destined to be together if only they would stop messing things up. I enjoyed this story and although its the first Ive read by this author I doubt it shall be the last.

Although this is the first in a series of romances with law enforcement figures it is also a continuation of the previous series which took place mostly in Seattle and Washington but ended in Los Angeles when Tristan Riley and Michael Kincaid, DEA agents took down a deadly drug gang and rescued Tristan's girlfriend the prima ballerina Lillian. Now Michael has his own past to retrieve and this highly tattooed scary looking yet handsome blonde 6'4" loner who tears up fearsome gangs and eats them ...more
Jolanda Gelissen
In this first book of a new series, Michael Kincaid finally gets to tell his story. He was a supporting character in the Teplo series, proving to be a good agent and loyal friend. In this book, he takes main stage, but the characters from the Teplo series make noted appearances as well, tying the series together. However, you wont necessarily have to have read the previous series to appreciate this book, as the story stands on its own.

The story alternates between present time and flashback

Ayden K. Morgen, Fight for you, a Warrior for Her, book 1.

As an ARC reader I received this book for free. And promised an honest review. Here it is. English isnt my first language. Sorry for errors.

Rating: 4 (out of 5 stars).

In general: From protective best kid/friend to adult guardian/lover.

The main characters in this book are Michael Kincaid Cade and the girl next door January James (+ her brother Titan).
Cades father left his mom before he was born and he lost his mother in a car accident
Gritty and passionate second chance romance.

This is a tale where tragedy and loss break up two lovers who cant even imagine being with anyone else. Fate plays a twisted hand when they are thrown back together to fight for a new chance at happiness.
Told in two points of view and two different timelines, the plot merges criminal gangs, overrun neighbourhoods, sweethearts since childhood, guilt and death and unbreakable love.

I loved the chapters where Kincaid and January are kids, they are tender
The Romance Enthusiast (Ruby)
Fight For You is a MUST READ book because of hero himself. Michael is a DON'T MISS hero. This is my fourth book I've read from Ayden and I can say that this is without a doubt my favorite one so far. There's also the fact that Ayden has given her works cameos from her other series. But you don't necessarily have to read those books but it helps with the overall story.

Story begins when Michael Cade Kincaid comes back to his hometown of Los Angeles, to the neighborhood he grew up in. All is not

This is the first book I read by Ayden K. Morgen and I was positively surprised by the story. The plot is engaging and the characters are very well written.
When little Michael Kincaid loses his mother, he didn't expect that as he moved with sweet Ma Rose, his life and destiny would change forever. He soon befriends Titan, and as soon as he lays eyes on his younger sister, January, their fates are traced and intertwined forever.
The neighborhood they live in is not the best, with their gangs and

He leaves town and now 10 yrs later he is back. Cade finds out that January is in a little trouble with a local gang. He is going to do everything he can to protect her.

On my goodness when i tell you i was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book.
Full disclosure I was selected to read an early copy of this book for my first review and I'm excited as heck to say I thoroughly enjoyed it.
We meet Michael, Titan, and January. First intro to Michael and get his background, don't want to give spoilers, if possible. Then Titan, who is the older brother to January. Each have had a trying upbringing; however they were blessed with love throughout as well.

I've read a couple of this author's books, and I hoped this one would not disappoint. It didn't. Other reviews will give you a plot summary - here's what I want to know about a book in a review: Ayden Morgan has a good command of the language. Her dialogue is believable, and emotional scenes are well written and not annoyingly over the top. This book is well edited and there are no glaring grammar issues! I normally will read while half paying attention to a ballgame on the television - this ...more

FANTASTIC ! This was a really good book !! It captures you from the start and never lets you down. Its very emotional so you may wanna get some tissues. Cade and January go through sooo much in their life that it would break a lesser person. They are both strong characters, although sometimes it appears January isnt. But thats got to do with her not believing she has the strength on her own. With them growing up in the hood and fighting for what they want can bring all kinds of trouble and boy ...more

Raw. Gritty. Amazing!

As always, Ayden blows us away with her cutting edge, honest, emotion-driven novel. You feel the constant pain, pull and tug of each through each character as they rediscover a love that was so remarkable that they can't seem to escape no matter how long, how far, or how much has happened between them. I'm a huge fan of second chance romances, and this one pulls at every heartstring imaginable.

By the end of the book, I was both defeated and uplifted. I didn't want it to

I loved this book and could not put it down. It's a page-turner, for sure. From the very beginning, Morgen draws you into the world of January and Michael. Often flawed, sometimes tender, but above all, intense. There's no mistaking the tough world they live in, facing demons in their neighborhood, their past and in their heads. But their destiny draws them back, always back. Through carefully detailed back stories, the reader is drawn into the history and the present.

This is my first read from this author, and apparently I've been missing a great opportunity. Cade and January grow up in the same crime-ridden neighborhood, where gangs have taken hold. They have been in love with each other for as long as either of them can remember. Circumstances have kept them apart for years. Until he shows up to help take back the neighborhood, a dirty, gritty job. This is such a great book - strong, compelling characters who belong together, and finally get their second ...more

Wow this book was intense. The romance was hot and heavy and soooo steamy. The story line was amazing. It was full of realistic action and adventure, with twists and turns at every corner. Every time I thought I knew what was going on, I found out I didnt and I love that in a book. I will give a forewarning for anyone wanting to read this: it does have a LOT of cursing. I dont mind it, especially since the cursing fell in line with the characters personality (but I know some people do) . Also, ...more

This book is so good! I love the story and the way the two main characters interact so differently over the course of the book including how different they are when they are kids. The flashback scenes are incredible in that they are able to convey and give so much back story when you really want it. The writing is so fun to read and gives you a meaty story that you feel so satisfied with in the end. This book is hot, emotional, interesting, sweet, and intense and I wholeheartedly recommend it. ...more

Wow, this is a fantastic, gritty, and engaging read! The storyline is consistent and realistic. It is well written, emotionally deep, and action-packed with suspense, twists, drama, emotions, danger, passion, humour, and so much more. The characters are very strong and deep and you will love and root for them. This story is guaranteed to pull you in and grab hold of your interest from start to finish. Strongly recommended.
