Fighting for Love by Kelly Elliott: Finn is enjoying the life as a single firefighter. He loves his job and his family, but he could do without the pressure to settle down and have kids. He’s sexy, charming, and devoted to his family.
Rory has become a workaholic ever since joining her mom’s law firm. She’s smart and very dedicated to doing her best for her clients, but it’s hard to constantly fight the assumption that she gets preferential treatment. Rory has been all work and no play, which pleases her overprotective father as he’s not quite ready to let his little girl go.
Finn and Rory are happy enough, until Rory shows up at a union meeting that changes everything. Both experience an instant connection and Finn is definitely intrigued. He knows that Rory is different and he is more than willing to take a chance by dating the one woman who is off-limits.
“So I’m going to guess you’ve gotten on the wrong side of my father. Since he already forbids me to date firefighters, imagine his surprise if he finds out I’ve kissed a firefighter I’m attracted to who’s in his company. One he already had a beef with.”
I grinned from ear to ear. “You’re attracted to me?”
Finn persistently pursues Rory and eventually wears her down. Finn shows a surprisingly romantic side and a willingness to call in favors to ensure that they have dates to remember. But finding time in their hectic schedules and hiding their relationship and growing feelings from Rory’s parents quickly becomes challenging.
Placing my hand over my heart, I pretended to gasp. “Why, Rory Adams, are you using me for my extra Red Sox ticket?”
She didn’t even flinch. “Yes. And dinner. You also promised me dinner.”
