Fighting for Phoebe by Jennifer Ann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Jace Daniels and Phoebe Carson meet under unusual circumstances. After a fellow Marine disappears, and Jace's attempt of finding out what happened to him fails, he's off to let the family of his friend know what's happened before he is arrested. Stopping in a bar looking for information, he sees Phoebe, who's having problems with her abusive ex. Set out to protect this woman he's drawn to, he goes home with her for the night to make sure she stays safe. Neither can deny the insane attraction between them but danger and secrets are around every corner.
Jace is an honorable man trying to do the right thing by his friend. He believes he was killed during a mission and just wants to let his family know. He struggles with the decision to stick around and help this gorgeous, quirky woman with the troubles she faces between her ex and her mother, and leaving to continue his mission before it's too late. I love that he was strong enough for the both of them, and the heat and passion between the pair was tangible.
Phoebe has lead a life of deception from the time she was little. What can you do when it's all you know? She knows what she does is wrong, but she's kept where she is by fear and threats. This family is about as twisted as they come. I felt for her and how she grew up and everything she had to endure at the hand of her mother, brother and her ex. What she needs is Jace's extreme loyalty and dirty talking mouth!
This is my first Jennifer Ann book. She definitely knows how to do action, adventure and danger. The chemistry between Jace and Phoebe was scorching. The mystery and danger kept the book moving and I didn't have a bored moment reading this.
