Review ~ Fight For You by Magan Vernon

Fight For Youebook received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: April 9th 2014

A mafia prince who doesn't want the crown.
A girl who has secrets of her own.
One love that they'll both have to fight for.

Nicky Ragusa lives his life inside the cage, circuiting the underground ring to escape his fate as the mafia prince. When Jackie Marks crashes into his life, he’ll take the fight outside the cage.

But the battle for Jackie’s heart comes with a steep price. Nicky’s father has wanted him to take over the family business for years, and the time for running is over. Now Nicky is right where his father has always wanted him: in the middle of a war.

All Nicky has ever wanted to do was fight. Now all he has to do is fight for her.

My Opinion

I'm sad to say I couldn't finish this book. Everything about it sounded so good, especially with the fighter aspect however, it just felt so rushed and had no depth. I know it said it wasn't the standard NA 'fluffy' romance but in the 45% I read I'd hardly call it a romance. When the characters 'meet' one is unconscious, then she gets mad, storms an office to show her anger and somehow they end up having sex?! They are practically strangers and it wasn't even believable insta-love because of the emotions Jackie was meant to be feeling. I normally like insta-love but this felt so flat as after that she's more of a background character so nothing built. I really struggled to connect with the characters and the mafia side of the story wasn't dark or detailed enough to keep me reading. I found myself skimming pages quickly so decided to stop as nothing was engaging me and didn't see the point in continuing.
