Review: The Fight for Us by Elizabeth Finn

When Isaiah moves his teenage daughter Natalie to a new town, there is little doubt he’s running away from the past. But what should have been a fresh start for them ends up fraught with pain and heartache when Natalie becomes the victim of intense bullying at her new school. When Joss is called to a meeting with the high school principal to discuss her daughter Harper’s involvement in the bullying of a new student, she’s shocked to say the least. Her daughter can’t possibly be that child. It’s a rocky start for Joss and Isaiah as they try to set their daughters on the right path. But there is more to Joss’s and Isaiah’s connection than just two teenage girls. Joss’s and Isaiah’s attraction to one another is undeniable, regardless of their fractious start. But his soul is broken, and as much as he’s drawn to her, he’s equally terrified of what that means. Is Isaiah strong enough to let her get close to him? Life sometimes forces you to make those choices whether you’re ready to or not. And when Joss’s life is turned upside down, Isaiah has to decide if he’s ready to leave his past behind and live again, or if he’s going to watch what he’s come to care so much for slip away. Isaiah’s fight is profound. Joss’s is too. And their strength to withstand it all is brutally tested. Sometimes the willingness to fight for another is all a person has left to give. And sometimes the fight is the most important gift of all.

The Fight for Us by Elizabeth Finn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Deep subject matters are at the core of this emotionally driven romance. I always like a good angsty read and with this one touching on spousal abuse in all forms, suicide and the effects that has on the ones left, and bulling in high school I certainly got my fill.

Two parents clash when meeting in the principal’s office over one daughter bulling the others daughter. As the story unfolds we find out there is so much more to the story. A widowed dad and a divorced mother both are carrying enough battle scars from their past for a life time. Even though neither wants to be attracted to the other it’s not long before they start a relationship but some of the ghost from their past refuse to leave them alone and bring more heartache to these two families before all is said and done.

In the end all 4 have to fight for the family and happiness they deserve and its so worth it.
