Bleh. This is simply unacceptable. Or, more like . . . maddening.

“I have never denied that I love her.”
He releases a heavy sigh. “No, but you won’t do anything about it either. You love her, but you won’t try again? You love her, but you won’t fight for her? You let her go, but you’re holding on.”

“A true second shot will split the first arrow and create a solid path.”

I can’t get enough of these Arrowood brothers! I loved the first book in this series, and I couldn’t wait to get to Declan and Sydney’s second chance romance! 

Declan and Sydney were childhood sweethearts and they couldn’t have been more in love. Sydney thought nothing would ever tear them apart. Then, one day, seemingly out of nowhere, Declan breaks up with her and leaves town for good.

“Now I have to fight. For her. For us. For the life we both want.”


She was the one doing the fighting because sis was very much pathetic. I just love an author that very much writes women as weak and pathetic. She begged him to have sex that’s why she got pregnant in the first place.. She let him into her body without asking him if he was safe.

He spent the majority of the damn book saying he wasn’t good enough for her. How fighting for her was to let her go. (S

I’m not sure how Corinne continually does it but she seems to top every book she puts out.

“A true second shot will split the first arrow and create a solid path.”

Talk about second chances and how this blew it all out of the water. I’m in love with Declan and Sydney.
They are both so strong willed and hard headed.They both know of to get under each others skin but know when they’ve gone too far. The love that has never gone away even though they have both tried. Ugh this book is just so perfect

The title Fight for Me is absolute perfection for this story. Declan and Sydney orbit each other from a young age, and when life gets in the way, decisions made, lives are forever changed, hearts broken, and through it all, there is always the lingering request from them both to FIGHT. Fight for me is angsty, sweet, sexy, funny, frustrating, and an emotional ride that I devoured in one reading. I was honored to advance read Declan and Sydney's journey and can't wait to l

Fight For Me is a childhood friends–to–lovers and second chance love story that will tear your heart to pieces, then slowly mend it back together again. Although it’s a standalone, you will understand the four Arrowood brothers’ backstory best if you read book one first, Come Back For Me.

Book two features Sydney Hastings who loved Declan Arrowood since she was ten years old. Due to personal reasons that he does not disclose to Sydney, he decides to abrubtly leave her heartbroken, ending their re

Be still my heart! Corinne Michaels wrote a beautiful story about a second chance love that will steal your heart. It was filled with so many emotions and feels. I loved it so much from the characters to the writing to the dreamy but broken Arrowood brothers. Their past plays a major role in all their stories but it’s their story of healing that you will feel in your soul.
Declan and Sydney were childhood sweethearts. When a family event, changes the course of their future, Declan believes Sydney

“A single moment can define a lifetime. My father taught me that lesson, and I couldn’t stay here and hurt you.”

This book was absolutely phenomenal! This is a second chance romance that by far passes up anything else I have read before. You can read this as a stand alone, but I would recommend reading Come Back for Me first. You will first meet Declan and Sydney in that book.

Gosh, this book ruined me in the best of ways. I knew Sydney and Declan would rip my heart out, but I wasn't at all prepared for them. These two are obviously meant to be together, and are so engrained in each other's souls, but because of Declan's misguided intentions, they just can't *be.*

Declan hasn't had an easy life -- and that's an understatement. When he and his brothers lost their mom at a young age, the father that was supposed to be their protector turned into a monster. Each brother

One night changes everything... and sometimes protection for the one you love most means walking away and hardening yourself for the rest of your life. Declan never lets anyone get close.

Where do I begin?

This series is going to RUIN me, no two ways about it.

I love the characters, I love the setting and I love the story running through all 4 books.

This time, it’s Declan’s turn to go back to the place of the brothers’ nightmares. But for Declan, there is more than just one reason it’s not a good thing. Sydney. His forever girl that he gave up 8 years prior when he made his escape from Sugarloaf.

Despite being the oldest and the most surly, Declan is a tortured soul and one that can

Oh sweet Jesus this book!! Fight For Me (Arrowood Brothers #2) has seriously slayed my heart. I love second chance romances and Declan and Sydney’s book really did it for me.

This second chance romance story is both sweet and heartwarming. But getting to that HEA is not an easy feat. There is angst, pain, and lots of heartache. Childhood sweethearts Declan Arrowood and Sydney Hastings made plans to be married after college, raise a family and settle in Sugarloaf. But plans change and Declan chose to leave town and also most importantly, break Sydney’s heart. 8 years pass and Sydney and Declan meet again.....

I'm finding it extremely hard to put into words how much this book MEANS to me, how much I LOVED this book and how much this book hit me with ALL the feels! Declan and Sydney's story is a second chance romance that had me smiling, laughing and many tears! I without a doubt did not want this story to end, I tried to savor each and every word reading as slow as possible which was not an easy task for me.

Can I just say OMG!!!!!

This book is just what I needed and I didn't even know it. In many of my reviews I have mentioned this but it NEEDS to be mentioned again, Corinne is LEGIT the Queen of all Queen's. Hail to the Queen of Romance.

This book melts your heart into a puddle and leaves you with the biggest book hangover ever. Declan and Sydney's love story is EPIC. This second chance romance is must read.

I knew this one was going to put me through the wringer. And I couldn't wait for it! The way Corinne left this couple at the end of Come Back for Me was incredibly enticing, but I honestly never saw their story going through so much more than 8 years of heart break and

Favorite Quote:

Yeah, I’m a walking episode of Jerry Springer.

My Review:

This tale was laden with blindly stubborn characters in conflict with each other and angst, oh, the angst. Despite a heavy dose of my least favorite things, Ms. Michaels still managed to hold my attention with an enticing and interesting premise, complex and alluring characters, and heart-squeezing and sizzling plot lines. I’m already primed for the next brother’s installment.

Fight For Me is a breathtaking, soul searching and healing story full of heartache and love. Sydney and Declan made me want to scream at them and I may have thrown my kindle once or twice. They are frustrating, but so sweet and loving at the same time. Declan let his past demons control his future and it was so gut wrenching to watch them go through all the pain. I love how Sydney doesn’t back down and her honesty is a breath of fresh air as she won’t sugarcoat her feelings. They are meant to be ...more

We're back in Sugarloaf, and once again Corinne made me cry! She's so good at that!

Declan Arrowood and Sydney Hastings are first loves. He left her suddenly one night eight years ago, and if you've read Come Back for Me you know why. As much as she's tried, Sydney has never stopped loving Declan. Their story is a constant push and pull of love and hate and feelings, and surprises, I really enjoyed this one!

Ahhh, Declan and Sydney's story was so full of the feels!! I am such a sucker for stories where the main characters have known each other practically their whole lives, and Declan and Sydney had been best friends since they were like 10 years old. They grew up together and their friendship turned into more. I love seeing the evolution happen, and love reading about the promises they make each other. But then, it all gets ripped away in one night.
