Overview

Sexiest soccer player.  Top-scoring athlete.  America's favorite party boy. 

Jace Connor has received many titles in his career, and enjoyed them all. Although, he's working on changing the last one. There's more to Jace than the media portrays—a man who loves his tight-knit family, being his nieces' and nephews' favorite uncle. 

The reformed party-boy is now steering clear of anything that could blemish his reputation. But when the coach's gorgeous daughter is hired on as the team's new sponsorship manager,  keeping on the straight and narrow becomes impossible. Her warm and bubbly personality coupled with her sexy-as-sin body makes her irresistible. 

Brooke Derringer wants to prove to everyone that she wasn't hired due to her personal connections. She's determined to keep things strictly business and focus only on work. She learned the hard way that the office isn't the place to make friends.

But a certain smoking hot--and bossy--soccer player is determined to change her mind. Surprising her with clandestine dinners and late-night gym sessions, Jace is inescapable. 

For the first time in his life, Jace wants more. He wants the whole package…with the one woman he can't have. But Jace doesn't let that deter him. He's determined to fight for her. And he will.

Favorite Quotes: I understand boundaries, Brooke. I’m just not very good at respecting them. We have a system. We drink Chardonnay when we celebrate something and Pinot when we’re sulking. My Review: Another Connor sibling gets bitten by the love bug and his single life bites the dust once he falls for the team's new sponsorship manager, who also happens to be the coach’s daughter. Sizzle and snap, this well-matched couple had electrifying chemistry that yielded scalding sensual scenes.

Loved Jace and Brooke's story! Jace was swoon wothy and off the charts with their chemistry. Their story was flawlessly written and heartfelt. Loved every single page of this book!

I've loved every book in the Connor Family series and this was no exception. Jace is the perfect guy to fall for, and Brooke is easily as lovable. The instant attraction is steamy. The family dynamic is awesome. I loved the bits with Jace and his nephew. If you're not already in love with the Connor clan (and now could you not be?), you'll fall a bit more in this story. I wish I could be a part of their family. I received a review copy from the author; all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I absolutely loved the story of Jace and Brooke. Jace quickly became my favorite Connor and I love them all so that was a bit of a shock to me. Jace's determination to have a relationship with Brooke, despite the odds against them made me fall in love with him. The handsome soccer star will steal your heart. Brooke is sassy, smart, and his perfect match in every way.

Fighting For You quickly became my favorite Connor book yet! I am so in love with Jace's story! I have always had a soft spot for the playboy soccer player, and his story did not disappoint. Everything about this story drew me in. Once I started I simply could not stop. I found myself flying through the pages anxious for more. It checked all my feel good boxes. While also combining some of my favorite tropes from Sports Romance, to Office Romance, to even Friends to Lovers. This book truly is the perfect package. Jace and Brooke had chemistry for days!! The sexual tension between these two could have started a fire! I admire the authors ability to make you LOVE all her characters. One of the things I love most about this series is getting glimpses into past Connor's and sometimes Bennett's. I can never get enough of either of these clans, and always love absorbing new details from their lives. Jace has ruined me for everybody else. I have always had a soft spot for his character. But I fell so hard for him this book. He is seriously the perfect man. Hes mine and I call dibs! Everything about his character oozed sex appeal and charm. Every word out of his mouth either left me swooning or melting. Jace knew just how to turn up the heat. He has definitely mastered the art of dirty talk. Soccer isn't the only thing he knows how to play well. Brooke is one of those characters you love instantly! He carefree spirit was a breath of fresh air. I could absolutely see myself being her friend in real life. I loved she was driven, determined, and fierce! I admired her characters ability to face everything head on. I loved Brooke wasn't affraid to show her vulnerable side. It made her so much more easy to relate too. She definitely pulled at my heart strings more than once. *5 STARS* Well earned for this spicy feel good romance. If your looking for a flirty, and fun read. I highly recommend buying this story.

This is the 5th book in the 'Connor Family' series. This story is about Jace, he always has a smile, kickback attitude, his family is means everything to him, and he's a sexy professional soccer player. Wow! When the Connor men fall they fall fast and hard. This is a love at first site story. I couldn't put this book down, as in, I read this book in one day really in one sitting. I loved everything about Jace and Brookes story, from the humor, to the flirty smiles and comments between them. I loved how both Brooke and Jace gave each other so much support in not just their personal lives but professional lives too. I love the family gatherings, the way they are always coming together and giving love and support to each other. I also love that the author gave us a scene with a character from her 'Bennett Family' series. Now I feel the need to reread those books! Would I recommend this book to my family and friends? Without doubt I would! I look forward to reading more from this series and more from this author. Can't wait to read Hailey's story next! ***I voluntarily reviewed this ARC for an honest review, this is my honest opinion and has not been influenced by the author or Publishers in anyway.*** Thank you!

Finally, sexy soccer player Jace Connor gets his story. Jace is great at causing trouble but is a fabulous brother and uncle. Getting famous playing soccer has turned him off of relationships after meeting too may women that want the fame and not really the man. Will he ever find someone that truly gets the man behind the glitz? Brooke has just gone through an awful breakup that involved her relationship and job. When she lands a position with the Lords soccer team to build the sponsorships for the club, she is very excited by the opportunity. She knows she can handle a group of cocky soccer players but when she gets to know Jace, well, she never expects this amazing loyal, thoughtful and sweet man. Does she even stand a chance as Jace keeps pushing at her boundaries? What will happen when the club finds out they are dating? I am so glad we got to experience all of Jace’s wonderfulness. His moments with Milo are priceless. The chemistry with Brooke is fabulous and she is great at not letting him get away with anything. Truly a wonderfully sexy romance to escape with.

I just love this Connor family! Somehow time after time Layla keeps giving us wonderful characters in which to fall in love with! I never think I can love one more than the other and then, well, here's Jace. Jace won me over from all the others in this book! He is simply everything wrapped up in a sexy, sweet athletic package, and he's totally swoonworthy! I adore him and Brooke together! She is perfect for him and vice versa. They have amazing chemistry and are each other's champion, their "person", which I totally love! So often you don't see a couple so involved in each others careers and I love that they have that connection. Brooke is amazing! She is so smart and driven and I love the way her mind works. From the get-go she makes Jace want things he never really wanted before. Watching their relationship blossom is such a treat, especially for a romantic. Things are not always easy for them, but nothing worth it ever is. Another wonderful story in The Connor Family series that left me with a full heart and a smile on my face.

Layla Hagen has given us another winner in the Connor Family series. Jace is a star player for the LA Lords and Brooke comes on board as the new sponsorship business development position. She recently got out of a relationship, with a coworker, so she’ll be friendly, but not too friendly at the club. Jace decides he’ll fight for Brooke and that’s exactly what he does. I won’t leave any spoilers, but I will say that it’s not all smooth sailing. Grab your copy and get ready to fall in love with all of these characters.

Each time a Layla Hagen novel comes out, I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Can't wait to read them, but my heart aches the closer I come to the end. Fighting for You is the countdown to heartbreak. A reminder that there's one more Connor waiting in the wings. It's also the beginning of something special. Getting to know another great character. Jokester, Jace becomes a swoon - worthy, addiction. The playboy finally becomes more than a heartbreaker. Brooke and Jace took my heart into overdrive. They shouldn't fit, yet somehow they work. Turns out he's much deeper than he let's on and once he finds his heart's desire, he's never letting go. There's always room on my bookshelf for perfection.
