Recent college grad Aaron Elliott is a pro when it comes to avoiding conflict. So when he hears his mother and stepfather plan to sell the family’s rambling summer retreat, it takes everything in him to object. The lake house is where he feels closest to his late father. It’s where he fell in love with his best friend…and it’s where he let family pressure decide his future rather than following his heart.

A combat injury has sailor James “Freddie” Fredrick dry-docked, possibly for good. But the pain in his shoulder is nothing like the hurt he feels when he sees Aaron back in town. It’s been four years since the love of his life left without a word—and though Freddie would give anything to deny it, the heat between them hasn’t faded.

Once upon a time, Aaron let Freddie go without a fight. He won’t screw up their second chance to have a happy ending. But unless he makes peace with the past, Freddie won’t be able to face their future.

Book three of Letting Go

My View:

Fight to Forgive is third book in J Leigh Bailey’s fabulous new adult series Letting Go. Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone as they are only loosely connected by setting and theme. Characters from current books don’t appear in previous books.

Fight to Forgive is a second chance romance. You know my soft spot for those. It is a beautiful story of letting go of your fears and living for yourself. It is a story of reconnecting with old loves and forging new paths. It is also a story of reignited passions and fighting for what you want.

Aaron and Freddie are a mismatched couple on many levels, but they are perfect for each other. They complement one another. Aaron’s determination to make things right is heartwarming. Low on the angst meter, Fight to Forgive is still an enjoyable way to spend a few hours.
