Wattpad sensation Kirsty Moseley brings us the sequel to FIGHTING TO BE FREE.
Sometimes in life you have to walk away . . .
Leaving Jamie Cole was the hardest thing Ellie Pearce ever had to do. Somehow, she moved on. She made a new life in a new city with a new man. So when a family tragedy calls Ellie back home, she believes all her old feelings for Jamie—the hunger, the heat, the heartbreak-are safely behind her. But the second she lays eyes on him, the intensity of their connection is as strong as ever.
Sometimes you stay and fight . . .
Jamie knows pain. He’s felt it fighting in the streets, and he felt it fighting to survive in prison. Yet nothing he’s experienced has been as painful as the day Ellie left—until the moment she came back. This time Jamie is determined to hold on to Ellie forever. But as much as she still loves him, she can’t ignore the dark world he’s now a part of. Jamie has enemies. Dangerous ones. And after seeing Jamie with Ellie, they know exactly how to take him out . . .
So this is the sequel to Fighting To Be Free if you haven’t read the first book I suggest you go and read it also check out my review! So do not read this review if you haven’t read the first one or you will be spoiled as it is a sequel!
I’d like to thank Kirsty Moseley and the publicist for sending me this ARC and I feel very lucky that I was one of the chosen ones to read this! So we left off with Jamie telling Ellie that he didn’t want to be with her or travel with her instead of telling her in Prison. When we meet them again it has been a few years since then, Jamie is completely different and Ellie is living in England.
Jamie’s character he was one of those where prison changes a person though as we go through the book we realise it’s not prison that changed him really it was losing Ellie. I loved how protective of her he was even when she hated him and wanted nothing to do with him. He was willing to put up with that just so she would be safe, and I loved how much he did care and wanted to protect her. Jamie has had a massive change in his life he is now running what was his old boss’ crew he just runs it a little cleaned and not as much violence. It was really watching Jamie in this power of position especially as in the first book we watched him fight it so much just to be with Ellie. Although he does as always want to give it up for her, I really liked his character and the drastic change in his personality really did suit it and there wasn’t a time when I looked at his character and not know what his motivation was.
Ellie, my heart broke for her character like obviously not at the end like last chapter end, although she thought she was happy it really did not seem that way and it became obvious when she had to come home because of her parents being involved in a crash. Everything Ellie felt I really did feel the pain and the hurt as well as the happy parts, I love Kirsty’s writing and it always makes it so easy to read and connect with the characters and as always I love my characters.
The relationship between the two although at times Ellie should have felt scared of Jamie especially when he attacked someone in front of her, you would have thought she would be panicked, but she isn’t. It surprised me that still after a few years she could trust Jamie not to hurt her physically or harm her anyway and I really liked that. I love their relationship and it made my heart warm and fuzzy especially when they got back together that was literally I just couldn’t stop smiling at it. It was nice to see them finally admit their feelings to each other and it warmed my heart to be able to read those scenes especially as Kirsty does romance so well!
The plot I loved the continuation I’m totally glad this is only a Duology though because it works better that way. There is a plot twist in this book that I did NOT see coming when it happened I was like what?! No way I was shocked to still am can’t get over it, also can’t tell you about it because of spoilers. So yes I loved the way the plot was constructed and how it fell. Kirsty really did a brilliant job with this book and ended it beautifully and I can’t wait to see what Kirsty writes next!
