Fight for your dreams. Fight for your life. Fight for love.
Nerdy girl Autumn Blakewood is the prime example of a goody two-shoes. She studies every night, is never late for class, and always follows the rules. She has never felt the need to step out of her comfort zone. That is, until she meets Hunter.
Hunter Bane is a cocky, confident bad-boy, who’s nothing but trouble. He’s a dangerous distraction to everyone around him. Sexy and strong, Hunter enjoys the swooning effect he has on women. Especially those who aren’t used to attention, like Autumn.
Autumn finds it hard not to give into Hunter’s advances, even though it all seems like a game to him. Trying to understand him is impossible, because he shrouds himself in mystery.
What she doesn’t know is that Hunter has more baggage than anyone should have to carry. When she discovers he’s in an illegal frat club to save the one person that matters to him, Autumn realizes this could mean the end of her undeniable connection to him. Even their lives are at risk.
But it’s too late to turn back now …
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I liked the general plot line of this book, Nerd Autumn starts College, she’s from a poor family and is determined to do the best she can after her parents gave all their money to get her there.
On her first day things don’t go to plan, and she ends up meeting Hunk Hunter Bane…
Hunter, sees the sweet shy girl and is intrigued, but Hunter has secrets, he’s involved with some bad people.
Autumn has always been the A grade student but something attracts her to Hunter, Hunter is also attracted to Autumn – or ‘Leafy’ as he nick names her. He should stay away, but he can’t. If and when Leafy finds out about the mess he is in will she run or stay?
I had a bit of a Love/Hate situation with Hunter, athough he is doing things that are not exactly legal, but you start to like him as he struggles to be good while being in a situation he has no control over… what I hated was his
Autumn’s friend and room mate Evie was quite flat and other than being the person she went to school with I felt no connection to her. Evie whinged and spat her dummy out over the silliest of things.
I don’t like to give out spoilers, so I won’t go into too much detail.
There was a lot of internal debating in the story – which is told in Autumn’s POV but overall I enjoyed the story – I think it gets better towards the end of the book, I think that reading FIGHT the Short Story Prequel 70% through this book helped me understand why Autumn was the shy girl she was, when obviously underneath it all she had spunk and guts to stick by Hunter and his problems…
Over all this is a good book, I look forward to reading Fury, to see what will happen next.
