Fighting to Be Free by Kirsty Moseley [Review + Giveaway]

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 original Wattpad sensation, with 6 million reads online – fully revised and with brand new content!

4 Worth Fighting For Stars
The Boy Who Sneaks into My Bedroom Window is one of my top ten reads ever. I love that book like mad, so I’m a mega Kirsty Moseley fan. Fighting to Be Free was originally on Wattpad but after six million reads, it’s finally published. This version is newer and with a lickable cover.

If you are a fan of the boy from the other side of the tracks kind of read, then this one is for you. Think teen angst, forbidden love and overcoming obstacles.

Like I said, Jamie is the boy from the other side of the tracks. When the book starts it starts dramatically and you get a sense of where Jamie comes from and what he’s dealt with. Jamie is released from juvenile detention. He’s been locked up for years and now he wants to go the straight and narrow path.

The only thing, the path is very difficult to obtain.  What I really enjoyed about this book is Jamie’s story. Kristy Moseley develops a character’s background so well. You feel for the characters and you are sucked into the story. Jamie lives in a bad apartment and is low on cash. He tries to get a job but it’s not easy.

Ellie is the pretty popular, but nice girl. She recently broke up with her boyfriend and she’s ready to start over. She isn’t looking for another boyfriend, but that doesn’t mean she can’t have fun. She has fun with Jamie and things start to progress. Ellie is an adorable Heroine to read. I like that she’s sweet, yet she isn’t innocent. She wants to have fun and be responsible. And of course the bad boy appeals to her.

Jamie and Ellie’s relationship forms fairly quickly but the mega storyline is all the problems that start to happen. With Jamie’s past, Ellie’s family and ex, there are a lot of issues to keep you happy.
This is a meaty book so you get your bang for your bunk. It’s filled with drama, romance and interesting storylines.

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!
