Nicky Ragusa lives his life inside the cage, circuiting the underground ring to escape his fate as the mafia prince. When Jackie Marks crashes into his life, he’ll take the fight outside the cage.

But the battle for Jackie’s heart comes with a steep price. Nicky’s father has wanted him to take over the family business for years, and the time for running is over. Now Nicky is right where his father has always wanted him: in the middle of a war.

All Nicky has ever wanted to do was fight. Now all he has to do is fight for her.

Blog Tour Review: Jo Rushton

"Fight For You" is the first Megan Vernon book I've read and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I thoroughly enjoyed Nicky and Jackie's story. Not only did I get romance but I got action and drama with the mafia element incorporated into the story line.... a winning combination if ever there was one.

So what was it about? Nicky was the son of a mafia don. He was born into a life of gangs and fighting but it was a life he wanted no part of. The only fighting Nicky did was in the cage and he was determined to keep it that way. That is until his path crossed with Jackie. From their first encounter, there was an attraction and Nicky knew he wanted this woman in his life:

"I want to know about the girl behind those gorgeous green eyes. I want more of you. All of you."

The couple quickly fell in love but it was their love that opened up a can of worms, forcing Nicky to follow his fathers wishes and join the family as the mafia prince!!! 

"I wasn't the guy that chased girls, but for her, I'd fight until the end." 

The more I read of this story, the more I found myself falling for Nicky. He really wasn't the bad boy I was expecting. Instead I found a man who would fight for his woman, a man who would protect her at all costs. A man who would stop at nothing to keep her safe... just the kind of man I like!!! He was like her own personal knight in shining armor. 

All I wanted to do was protect her. Jackie was the first person who really 
ever bought out the fighter in me. This girl was it for me.

Jackie's character left me conflicted. Initially I really liked her but when certain situations led her to question the choices she had made, my opinion of her definitely changed.

"I don't need you to protect me! I need to be protected from you! 
You say you don't want to be like your Father, but you're exactly the same."

The life Jackie had come from hadn't been an easy one and I assumed that when she got together with Nicky, she knew exactly what she was getting herself into. Obviously not judging from some of her reactions to said situations and this just infuriated me. There were moments my heart truly went out to Nicky because of the way she was behaving. This was a man who would do anything and everything for her... was she really refusing to stand by him? For the love of god, I just didn't get her. 

"You mean everything to me. I've never cared about someone so much until the day you 
crashed into my life. And if you walked away now and never wanted to see me again, 
I'd completely understand. But know this; I'll never stop fighting for you."

I whole heartedly got caught up in the story in "Fight for You" and there were moments I I felt like I'd been transported to the middle of a West Side Story production. I just hoped the ending wasn't as tragic. At times though, it did seem to be heading that way and I found my heart was in my mouth, and my blood pressure going through the roof. Yup, be prepared for some edge of seat reading ladies because this one will really give you a run for your money. I give "Fight For You" 4 hearts.
