Title: The Hardest Fight
Author: Amy Vastine
Publisher: Harlequin Heartwarming
Release Date: July 1, 2015
Book Summary: Lucy Everhart expected her opposing counsel to be a slick, soulless corporate lawyer. Who else would represent developers intent on turning Chicago’s Safe Haven women’s shelter into condos? But she never imagined it would be Dylan Hunt. Clearly, he’s no longer the idealistic young man she fell for in law school. This is Dylan 2.0. The man who let her go without a fight five years ago—along with his passion for social justice, apparently. He may have compromised what he believed in, but Lucy hasn’t. Dylan has no idea what kind of fight he’s in for. But then again, neither does she.
Like a good Heartwarming, this book was clean, thought provoking and a happily ever after. Lucy’s had some hard things happen; she’s made things harder for herself. For the most part I liked Lucy’s character. I guess I had a hard time deciding who she was. She was incredibly strong and good. She was whiny and feeling sorry for herself. I realize what I am describing is just a normal person, but it was a bit of a roller-coaster and not all the time was I sure I liked the ride.
Dylan I liked. I felt that although his character was good and kind at the beginning of the book, he faced things and continued to grow. I especially loved that his relationship with his mother added a greater maturity.
All the supporting characters were well done as well.
This book is a little more thought provoking than straight up romance. It has a message that I think we all need.
