Review: Fighting Love (Crestler's Key #1) by Melissa West

he strapping, sun-kissed Littleton brothers of Crestler’s Key are hometown boys in every way, farming land that’s their family’s legacy. But these sexy bachelors won’t stay single for long…

Single dad Zac Littleton has always tried to make lemonade from life’s lemons, and striking a bargain with Sophie Marsh is no different. A relative newcomer to town, she needs his help convincing the locals to try her Fresh Foods Organics produce—and Zac needs to satisfy his preteen daughter’s pleas to get out and have fun. Fake-dating Sophie will kill two birds with one stone, at least for a while—unless he gets addicted to the sweet pleasure of his beautiful competitor’s company…

Sophie can’t stand Zac. Or maybe she simply can’t stand Littleton Farms beating her in sales every week. It’s true that pretending interest in Zac and his sculpted biceps and devilish smile is a lot easier than she expected, and much more tempting, too. But despite their all-natural attraction, Sophie’s past has left her wary of any man—even one as charming as Zac. Besides, he’s got trust issues of his own. If anything real can blossom between them, it’s going to take a whole lot of patience, persistence…and passion.

Expected publication: January 24th 2017 by Kensington      

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher Kensington via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is January 24th, 2017.

For those who are familiar with the work of Melissa West, you may recognize that this new series features the brothers of Kate Littleton who was featured in the second installment of the Hamilton Stables series.  This story takes place in the neighboring town of Crestler's Key.  I liked how some of the characters from the other series made minor appearances in this story however do not play a big enough role to impact the enjoyment if you had not read the other series.  Its kind of like how the TV shows have those crossover episodes.

So back to this know from the very beginning that the chemistry between Zac and Sophie is undeniable.  They say it is a fine line between love and hate and people do not have the amount of animosity they had for each other without knowing where this was headed.  I thought it was cute how they bated each other.

I am a fan of stories that take place in these small towns.  Since I grew up in a small one, I can easily identify with the way the gossip network works and the pressure of knowing that everybody knows your business.  It adds to the dimension of the storyline.

I have read quite a bit of West and it is no secret that I am a fan of her work.  This first story in her new series has not disappointed and I am glad that I have a new series to follow.
