Review: Fighting Love (Crestler’s Key #1) by Melissa West


The strapping, sun-kissed Littleton brothers of Crestler’s Key are hometown boys in every way, farming land that’s their family’s legacy. But these sexy bachelors won’t stay single for long…

Single dad Zac Littleton has always tried to make lemonade from life’s lemons, and striking a bargain with Sophie Marsh is no different. A relative newcomer to town, she needs his help convincing the locals to try her Fresh Foods Organics produce—and Zac needs to satisfy his preteen daughter’s pleas to get out and have fun. Fake-dating Sophie will kill two birds with one stone, at least for a while—unless he gets addicted to the sweet pleasure of his beautiful competitor’s company…

Sophie can’t stand Zac. Or maybe she simply can’t stand Littleton Farms beating her in sales every week. It’s true that pretending interest in Zac and his sculpted biceps and devilish smile is a lot easier than she expected, and much more tempting, too. But despite their all-natural attraction, Sophie’s past has left her wary of any man—even one as charming as Zac. Besides, he’s got trust issues of his own. If anything real can blossom between them, it’s going to take a whole lot of patience, persistence…and passion.

My Review

I absolutely adore Melissa West and her sweet contemporary romances. Her second chance romances not only leave me with a smile on my face, but have me swooning like it’s nobody’s business!! So, of course when I heard about Fighting Love, wild horses couldn’t have stopped me from getting my hands on it.

Fighting Love is a fantastic enemies to lovers, second chance romance. I adored the slow building romance between Zac and Sophie. The tension and chemistry between these two was through the roof. I couldn’t get enough of their banter and interactions. I found myself quickly turning the pages to see what would happen next.

One of the things that I loved about Fighting Love was that it was a bit of a departure from the stories that we normally see from this author. Yes, this story is sweet, with a dash of sexy. But, it also had a suspense and mystery element to it that led to a really exciting twist.

This story exceeded my expectations and kept me captivated the entire time. I think this new series is off to a wonderful start and I am super excited to see where it will go next!
