A larger-than-life firefighter inspires a career-driven woman to live in the moment—and trust in the power of love—in this flirty, emotional novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Searching for Harmony.
Finn Ward has two passions: being a firefighter and being single. Although his parents are constantly nagging him to settle down, Finn just wants to enjoy himself while he’s young. Then, at a union meeting, he meets a gorgeous lawyer with a dazzling smile—and suddenly, settling down doesn’t sound so bad.
Rory Adams is fresh out of law school and looking to make a name for herself at her mother’s firm. She doesn’t have time for silly games anymore. But when she catches the eye of a dashing fireman who makes her body tingle from across the room, something instantly ignites between them. The only problem? Her father is Finn’s boss.
Their relationship turns both of their lives upside-down. Rory tames Finn’s wild ways, while he shows her that life can’t be all work and no play. But it’ll take some serious determination to keep their love secret—and real courage to admit the truth.

Fantastic story! This second book in the Boston Love series was simply wonderful. Finn Ward makes no apologies for his lifestyle. Hardworking firefighter, hard playing bachelor. No need to change as far as he could see. The fact that his new boss doesn't like his fun loving ways isn't his concern. Then he meets the lovely Rory Adams. She's a lawyer who represents the firefighters union. She's hardworking and doesn't have time for much of a personal life. Finn takes this as a challenge to get her to loosen up. One little problem. That new boss that already doesn't like him just happens to be Rory's father. Problems ahead - you bet!!
This is really a well done story. Lots of humor, low angst, and great characters including an amazingly adorable dog! I highly recommend this one!
Rory, Finn, and a dog named Flash...
Finn is a firefighter, playboy for Engine #33. He loves the adrenaline rush he experiences when rushing into a burning building to save someone. He also enjoys women, almost to a fault. He and his best friend Colton are on the Captain's "naughty" list as a result of their playboy ways. As a punishment, the Captain decides to give the firehouse puppy, Flash, to Finn to take home and train. Finn tries to exhaust Flash by taking him for a run, but Flash has other ideas. He takes off and runs right into Rory...
Rory, an attorney with her mom's law firm, has always lived a life mapped out for her. She wanted to be a teacher, but attended law school because that's what her mom wanted. Her dad, the Captain at Engine #33, has forbidden Rory to ever date a firefighter. He doesn't want her to constantly worry if her boyfriend/husband will make it home. He also knows that firefighters tend to be playboys and doesn't want Rory to fall for someone who may be unfaithful. So Rory tries to be the "good girl", until she meets Finn via Flash....
Finn and Rory engage in a "secret" romance that moves extremely fast. So fast that Rory practically meets Finn's whole family on their first date. They are able to keep their relationship a secret for 2mths, until Rory's creepy co-worker informs her mom that Rory is dating Finn. Rory swears her mom to secrecy, promising she'll tell her dad before the Firefighters Ball. Only she doesn't. Captain Adams loses it when he finds out and tells Rory to break it off or he'll have Finn transferred or fired....
So as not to spoil the rest of the story, I'll just say that they eventually get their HEA. This novel was laugh out loud funny, laugh so hard you cry, while also engaging you in the lives of every character. I don't think I've ever enjoyed a novel as much as this one! The scenes with Finn and Flash or when Finn and Rory were changing Presley's diaper for the first time had me in tears I laughed so hard! I was kind of disappointed that we never found out the reason or lesson the Captain was trying to get across to Finn by having him train Flash. I can guess, but I really wanted to know his reasoning. I also wanted to read the last letter Finn gave to Rory.....I've never read a Kelly Elliott novel and this was a most pleasant surprise! I can't wait to read the rest of the series! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
Kelly Elliot is one my top 5 Authors! Her writing is truly amazing, she never fails to make me laugh and cry at the same time. Fighting For Love, is another example of her "amazing skills" Thank you for your endless stories that me continuously captivates me. Joan
