Fighting the Fire (Warrior Fight Club #3) by Laura Kaye
One night is never enough…
For firefighter Sean Riddick, Warrior Fight Club keeps the demons of his past at bay, even though it means seeing Daniela England. Her ball-busting sarcasm drives him nuts, and he knows he’s damaged goods anyway, but he can’t help but remember how good they were together that one time. Now he wants to take her to the mats no matter how much they go toe to toe.
ER nurse Daniela England has lost so much that she’s vowed never to need anyone again. Fight club helps her beat back her survivor’s guilt, but it means dealing with Riddick. The hot-but-infuriating firefighter is everything she wants to avoid, which is why their one-night stand was a mistake. Now she needs to keep her distance so it doesn’t happen again.
But when Dani witnesses Sean’s motorcycle accident, she steps up to help him recover. One on one, they get beneath all the snark and find a connection neither expected. As Sean heals, the sparks between them burst into red-hot passion—and ignite old wounds. Now there are fires all around—and they have to decide which they’ll fight and which they’ll let consume them.
I’ve been waiting for this book for sooooo long! WFC captured my heart while I was reading the first two books, and I was looking forward to more. As excited as I was when I heard that it was coming my way, I opened this book just as soon as it hit my kindle. And then I took my time reading it! This is one of those books that you savor, enjoying every page. And this book was totally worth the wait. Every bit of it!
Dani is a strong woman, because she has had to be. She has lost everyone that has ever meant anything to her, and that has created walls. Walls so tall that no one will ever get through them. But it is the only way she knows how to protect her shattered, bruised heart. Her prickly exterior is hiding a soft heart that is way too battered to let anyone in again.
Sean has his own set of heartaches. His own nightmares. He struggles with them, not knowing how to push past them. He has his own coping strategy, with WFC, and it works, mostly.
This book is kind of a friends/enemies to lovers. Definitely one that you want to read when you can take your time. Amazing story, well written, complex characters, but also with a lot of humor to keep it from being too heavy. Parts were hard to read, bringing tears to my eyes. But there was an
amazing HEA that made all of the struggle worth it! Epic!
