The story continues…
I trusted Colton with every bit of myself. I believed him when he promised he’d never hurt me. But he broke me…and now I watch him give another woman everything I thought would be mine.
I never saw this coming.
I don’t blame Taylor for the decisions she’s made, because I know the fault is all mine. I took her for granted. I broke her heart.
But she’s everything to me. If the guy holding her now thinks for one second I’ll lay down without a fight, he’s dead wrong.
Because I’m coming after what’s mine.
I absolutely loved this ending to Colton and Taylor’s story! As I said in my review for Fly, I adore friends-to-lovers romances. Colton and Taylor brought it! These two have this unbelievable connection. So much so that all it takes is one look into each others eyes and they know the truth and depth of their feelings.
In Fight, Colton finally has his head on straight (sort of), and he’s going after his girl! He’s tired of waiting for her to make up her mind about the status of their relationship. Taylor has essentially frozen him out of her life, and he’s done! She is going to have to deal with them whether she wants to or not. Once again, their long time friendship comes into play here. She knows him better than anyone and can always see the sincerity in his eyes and hear it in his voice. Now with her current situation, Taylor starts to wonder if it’s all worth it. Colton lives in a crazy world of motocross, booze, drugs, and girls. He may have given it all up for her, but will the stress and separation during competition be too much for her to handle in the long run?
Molly McLain does a wonderful job of conveying the emotional turmoil Colton and Taylor experience throughout the book. I felt all the love, anxiety, stress, and passion. Oh, and was there passion. These two can definitely set the sheets on fire! I loved reading about their journey and how they dealt with all the obstacles in their way. Molly created the perfect villains! They were just believable enough to make you wonder what was true. This book has the perfect amount of drama and angst, of which I’m not usually a fan.

Like many novelists, especially romance writers, my infatuation with a good love story began early. I don’t remember exactly how old I was, but I’ll admit that Barbie and Ken acted more than a couple of the story lines I had in my head (sorry, Mom, but, no, not all of them were kid-appropriate). The obsession continued to grow as I got older and, whenever I left home, I always had a wire-bound notebook and a blue ballpoint pen in hand. In fact, every August, I still get that goofy, schoolgirl itch to buy up oodles of pens and paper, because, while I love my laptop, nothing compares to writing long-hand. If the house is quiet and there’s a thunderstorm rumbling outside, even better.
Not that I have the slightest a clue what a quiet house is anymore. Having three rambunctious (but awesome) kids, a zippy dog and a pesky cat has completely blurred my memory of peace and quiet. Oh, and I have a husband too–I call him the FisherGuy–and he’s probably louder and crazier than all the rest. I think I’ll keep him though. After all, he keeps me in fresh fish year-round (yum!) and he’s good hero material. Did I mention he’s also a firefighter?
We live in Northern Wisconsin and, let me tell ya, living here has provided lots of small-town fodder for this writer’s overactive imagination. Of course, I know no one who’s lived anything close to the steamy experiences I write about (not that I’d tell ya if I did *wink*). There’s something inherently sexy about not knowing what goes on behind closed doors…or even better, letting my imagination run free, concocting all kinds of stories and scenarios and putting them down on paper. Or my laptop.
2014 is going to be a big year for me, as I debut my first novel early in the spring and the majority of the remaining series as the year goes on. I’ll also be releasing at least one, hopefully two, books in a second series. Both are set in small towns and both will feature smart, spunky heroines and sexy, smokin’ hot heroes. Oh, and romance…sometimes sweet and sometimes sizzling.
