All his life, people have told Jamie Cole that he was born bad. Maybe it's true, maybe it's not. But that doesn't matter now. Because after a lifetime of demons, Jamie has finally found an angel.
Ellie Pearce learned the hard way that boys can't be trusted. But the night she meets Jamie, something shifts. He's different: brooding, a bit dark, determined to change. The connection they share is intense, compelling. Ellie tries to resist, but with each breathtaking kiss, she can't help falling deeper.
Things between Ellie and Jamie are perfect—and perfection can't last. When fate goes horribly wrong, Jamie's only hope of saving his family is to strike a deal with the devil. Most of all, Jamie wants to prove he's the person Ellie believes him to be. But if she learns just how much he's been hiding, Ellie won't be able to believe anything Jamie has ever told her…

THE FIGHTING TO BE FREE SERIES
Fighting To Be Free, #1
Worth Fighting For, #2
Just wow, I don’t really know where to begin because 5 stars just doesn’t seem like enough, this book deserves so much more than that... Kirsty is one of the few authors that I’ll blindly buy everything she publishes, I love her writing style and the way she brings the characters to life blows my mind. Fighting to Be Free was a book that I hadn’t really read much about, I didn’t read the earlier version on Wattpad, I didn’t read many excerpts and I read only a handful of teasers. I just couldn’t bring myself to take even the slightest chance that I would ruin my reading experience, I wanted to read it whole and I wanted it so bad that it’s been on my calendar since the release date was announced. Because I hadn’t read much about Fighting to Be Free I steered clear of EVERYTHING to do with Worth Fighting For (Book 2), I didn’t actually read the synopsis until I had finished Fighting to Be Free and I am so glad I didn’t, it definitely would have changed my reading experience and even though I was left raw from it I wouldn’t change it for the world.
Jamie and Ellie are just incredible, because I had stayed away from teasers etc I had no idea what kind of characters they were, whether I would love them or hate them, and as it turns out at times I loved to hate them ;). Both of them are more complex than they look on the surface, I was so happy when I realised that the story was told from both POVs, I don’t think I could have handled not knowing what was going through both of their heads... Sometimes having a story in one POV is good for building suspense but with this one there is more than enough suspense and more of it surely would have driven me mad, I was just too emotionally invested to cope with the not knowing. I can’t sing their praises enough and I could spend ages listing all the reasons why I love them but I’ll just go with my main reason... They seem human, they both make mistakes and they both have hang ups that make them seem so real in a fictional world and having that injection of reality made it so much easier to connect with them.
From the very first chapter this book stole my heart, with each high the fist that seemed to be wrapped around my heart would loosen, but for every high there is a low and when that low came it was almost unbearable, I just wanted to save them from themselves and the people around them... A few times I had to put my Kindle down and walk away because my emotions were all over the place. I don’t feel like anything I could say will do it justice, it’s just a really amazing book... I am once again well and truly blown away by Kirsty’s talent, she never fails to deliver but with this one she went above and beyond any expectations I had. Thank you for sharing these two with the world Kirsty, I absolutely, wholeheartedly, unconditionally love them! <3
He rolled onto his side, reaching out his hand and pulling me against him as he slowly ran his hands down my back.
“That was incredible, Ellie,” he murmured, kissing my nose. He was grinning from ear to ear as he stroked his fingers across my cheekbone.
I smiled and sighed contentedly. “Yeah, it was.” And it really had been. That was incredible; he had been soft and tender, his hands seeming to explore every part of me as he’d taken my body to heaven and back again. He wrapped his arms around me, pulling me tightly against him, tangling our legs together as he just looked at every inch of my face with a small, satisfied smile on his lips.
“You don’t have much stuff,” I stated after we’d been silently cuddling on his bed for a couple of minutes.
He frowned. “Uh, no, I haven’t even been here a week.”
“Where were you living before?” I probed, wanting to hear the sound of his sexy voice some more. He shifted uncomfortably, and I took the hint that he didn’t want to talk about it. “That’s okay, you don’t have to say.” I rolled so that I was on top of him and sat up, straddling him. He ran his hands up my thighs and rested them on my hips, just watching me with a satisfied smile on his face.
I sighed. It was time to go. This was where it got a little awkward. What was I supposed to say? Thanks and good-bye? “So, I guess I should get going. Would you mind calling me a cab?” I asked, climbing off him and looking around the room for my clothes.
The bed creaked behind me. “You’re going? Why?” I didn’t need to look to know he would be frowning—I could hear the shock in his tone.
I smiled at him over my shoulder. He was sitting up on the bed, a little pouty expression on his face as he watched my every move. “Well, I’ve never had a one-night stand before, but I thought that was how it worked: You have sex and then you leave,” I joked as I pulled on my panties.
He shook his head. “No, I mean, why do you have to go now? You can stay the night; I’ll drive you home in the morning.”
“You want me to stay the night?” I asked disbelievingly.
He pushed himself up off the bed and walked to me in all his naked glory. I couldn’t keep my eyes off his body. “Yeah, I want you to stay the night,” he confirmed, smiling his sexy smile at me, making my stomach flutter.
Oh, I can definitely stay the night!
