Fighting to be Free by Kirsty Moseley | Book Review

Fighting to be Free by Kirsty Moseley 


Reading Group: High School+

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: 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 . 

Cover: The cover of this book shows Jamie looking down and a little bit like he's questioning whatever it is he's about to do.  There is also a warehouse in the background which makes sense once you read the story!!  

My Review:  I know my reviews are more like ramblings about what I liked and didn't like about the book, but today's is different because I got this book as an Advanced Readers Copy and it came out today so I won't be saying anything that will give away spoilers.  I will tell you that I absolutely loved this book!  This is the third book by Kirsty Moseley that I've read and it is my favorite.  It's about love and loss and decisions and it's told in the point of view of both Ellie and Jamie.  I noticed in some other reviews that some people didn't really like Ellie's character, but I did.  Some people think she is too naive, but I think she was trusting.  She put a lot of trust in Jamie and expected him to have the same trust in her.  She also very rarely jumped to conclusions and if she did she was able to apologize for her mistakes and she trusted her gut to know when things weren't right.  Jamie was such a lovable boy, but he was also tough.  His character reminds us that our past doesn't dictate our futures, but it's hard to run away from the past, sometimes impossible.  He wants to be a man Ellie deserves and it comes with a huge sacrifice on his part that absolutely tore me apart, but made me wicked excited for the sequel that comes out in December.  If you read Always You or Free Falling by Kirsty Moseley than you will enjoy this story, maybe even more like me.  I highly recommend you check it out and let me know what you think!
