    1. 4 starsAn infuriating mafia enforcer falling for a woman that doesn't belong to himA woman with the worst luck ever finding herself relying on the most unlikely man to save herThis is my first Scarlett Finn and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by how much I actually enjoyed Fighting Fate. I was lured into reading this by the mafia theme, however truth to be told, there isn't much mafia biz going on. This plot is very much focus on the romance. Although this is not a dark romance, this is [...]

    2. This book is so Hot and Sexy!!! Dax is my new book boyfriend:)As an enforcer for a wealthy and dangerous family, it is his job to make her submit.Growing up on the streets and fending for herself, she refuses to be broken.Dax Harrow and Ivy Dune are an unlikely and unconventional couple who have overcome tremendous odds, but will it be enough?When Ivy landed a job at an upscale Vegas resort she thought her life was finally moving in the right direction.

    3. 4.5Another easy read, because when you find an author that has stories that capture your mind and soul? That's it. I can honestly say I will pick up any book by Scarlett Finn from here on out. Prior to starting the book, I saw a few comments about some readers not particularly liking Dax, the ever sexy male alpha. I didn't want that to cloud my form of thinking in any way so I set it asideThis story is dark but not as dark as I expected. It was a pleasant surprise to see such a deep and raw elem [...]

    4. Loved it! Broke the book slump I'd slipped into :)I had to sit back and get my head in some sort of order to be able to write this review. First up, it's dark, involves kidnapping and characters that have little value of a human life. So why the high rating? As with all dark stories, there's the element of good attempting to triumph over evil. It's not always successful and like all good fights. It's how you fight that counts.I was excited to read this book. When Lady Sassy, saw the offer to rev [...]

    5. Mixed feeling on this one.I have very mixed feelings about this book.Ivy is working as a private attendant at the GoldSpring Hotel and while it may not be the glamorous job she'd expected it was a job and it paid the bills. Until one night she was attending a private party which got out of hand when one of the guys grabbed her and tried to rape her, Ivy escapes but money and power talks and she's fired.The guy in question is Trystan Stark and he doesn't appreciate being disrespected, he's a rich [...]

    6. 4.5 Dark and Sexy StarsSome people have all the luckt in Ivy's case. When they were giving out bad luck, she got in line twice!Ivy's been fighting all her life to be free of all the people trying to control and damage her. To be free of any stigmas, and to pick herself up and do better. And she thought she might actually be on the right track. She's finally gotten a good job where she can actually go somewhere other than the nearest street corner. Too bad this job puts her in the path of a spoil [...]

    7. With "Fighting Fate" , somehow Ms. Finn has found a way to make this story not only suspenseful and dark but blend in a good dose of hot and sexy too .Ivy Dune, has been on her own since she was a teenager she has moved from job to job,and city to city , now living in Las Vegas , and securing a good job at an upscale resort , she may finally be able to settle down for a while.However, an encounter with a spoiled son of a crime lord , Trystan, and his enforcer Dax Harrow turns from being a privat [...]

    8. 3.75 stars Fighting Fate is not your typical book. i will say i had a few mixed feelings abut this book.i did like the back and forth from Ivy and Dax bot of them have been through difficult childhoods and life has not been easy for either one of them. Dax, can be a bit of asshole, he had moments where he would show his true self and i really enjoyed those parts. I love when he was trying to fight Ivy advances and how own feelings. Ivy shes a fighter, shes feisty, and determined to not let other [...]

    9. ***ARC provided in exchange for honest review**If you're looking for hearts and flowers romance, this is not the book for you. If you want suspense, excitement, an intelligent heroine and a hot, alpha male then you've picked up the right book. As noted in the blurbs for the book, Ivy is a survivor and when she pisses off the son of a major crime boss, she's abducted and put in the care of Dax Harrow. His directive is to break her and mold her into the perfect wife for the spoiled brat she stood [...]

    10. Hot and Sexy is my first description of this book! I really love the mob/gangster books.It did bother me the way they kidnapped Ivy. What happened to her really did make me want to jump in book and beat those Dak and Bruno. All through the book there was some twist and turns between Dak and Ivy. They both were supposedly using each other to get what they wanted. Something else happened.The real shocker was almost at the end. About Dak's father. Also what Dak did to go back to Ivy I could really [...]

    11. Fighting Fate is a hard one for me to rate because I didn't love it and after about the 40% mark I didn't hate it anymore. I felt Dax was to similar to Rushe from the authors Explicit series but I think Rushe was a better character. Since I didn't read any reviews I wasn't aware of what happens in the beginning of this book and honestly its not something I enjoyed. While I did start to like Dax as the story progressed I found him at times not as strong as he was portrayed. I also felt Ivy was a [...]

    12. 4.5 out 5 starsI always love Scarlett Finn. She knows how to weave a story and keep the reader enthralled until the end. At first, I worried that this book was going to be a little too dark for me and had to put it down, but trusting in Finn's creativity I picked it back up. I am so glad I did. This book not only was about physically fighting but the emotional battle that Dax and Ivy must with each other and within themselves. I love it when the woman makes the man a better person no matter the [...]

    13. A new to me author that has blown me away. An amazing story with unexpected twists and turns, mafia ties, a wonderful love story and a whole lot more. I could not put this book down, I highly recommend this book!

    14. ······received an ARC for an honest review·····I am loving everything that Scarlett Finn writes. I was introduced to her work just a few months ago and have just about devoured all her books. This one was no different! This one was dark and twisted.Dax was another character that I loved. He was just the right amount of dark bad boy. Don't get me wrong, he had his nice moments, but Scarlett can write about bad boys!! He is someone that you want to hate but ending up loving.Ivy is a st [...]

    15. Fighting Fate is not your typical happily ever after feel good romance book. The hero doesn't court his lady love. He doesn't bring her flowers or take her on glamorous dates but Ivy and Dax's journey together makes you enchanted anyway and somehow that makes you appreciate their love for one another so much more. Ivy and Dax are strong-willed survivors whose relationship starts with a crazy and intense situation. Nothing about their circumstance is normal and they are both trapped in their curr [...]

    16. I received an ARC copy of Fighting Fate in exchange for an honest review. Holy dark suspense. I hesitate to use romance to describe this book, but it's in there too. It just isn't your "run of the mill" romance. Ivy is kidnapped and forced to submit to slavery to become a submissive "won't say no" slave to whomever owns her. Except Dax cannot follow through with his orders. He enjoys her rebellion and her arguments. Not that he doesn't enjoy her submitting to him in the bedroom, the dominance th [...]

    17. ***** 5 Stars *****Holy crap!!! I didn't think I would love this one as much as I thought!Go figure huh? This had everything - Kidnapping, being held as captive, Mafia organised crime Its dark read but the main characters do make it up with their amazing sizzling chemistry!!We meet Ivy Dune, she's a survivor that's takes no shit from anyone, love her sass!!! And the enforcer guy they brought in to make her submit in every way - Dax Harrow.I'll be totally honest here, I didn't think I would like [...]

    18. I've gotta say I really enjoyed this story. As soon as I saw this was about a Mafia family I just had to read it. Dax is an enforcer for a wealthy Mafia family. Since they took him in his loyalty lies with them. He meets Ivy when his boss Trystsn tries to rape her. When she is fired from her job she thought things were bad but her bad luck is only starting. Dax and Ivy find themselves in situations they don't wanna be in. What happens when Daxs loyalty is questioned?Great romantic thriller with [...]

    19. ***************10 STARS FOR FIGHTING FATE***************Scarlett Finn has done it again!!! I am absolutely blown away by this AMAZING story. The twists and turns are gut wrenching but of course make you want to keep reading. This book definitely tears you apart and the carefully puts you back together. As much as you are going to want to hate Dax you won't be able to. He will steal your heart and you will want to love him forever. I can't wait for more!!!

    20. I'm not sure how to rate this; ultimately its not a bad book. Its just not a book for me. Serious trigger warnings: Rape, physical abuse, sex trade/slaverySo, this book is a very dark story; but it was well written and hard to put down because you so badly want to know what happens next. If you are okay with dark stories that have some triggers, then this is an excellent book.

    21. *This ARC was provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*3.5 starsThis is the first book I have read by this author. It took me some time to really get into this one. It's supposed to be a mafia book, but it didn't feel like one. The family was more along the lines of drug dealers vs mafia. I have read a number of stories that involves a woman who is kidnapped & forced to be a slave. This wasn't as dark as I anticipated. I did like the heroine Ivy. I loved her sarcasm. Dax, the a [...]

    22. I completely was sucked in to this story and it forced a full range of emotions on me throughout the duration of the book. They ranged from fear to anger to sad to ecstatic.I love it when a book does that! The author did an excellent job with the story line, it flowed very nicely and the "bumps" in the road were all well placed. I loved that I was able to relate to the characters as the were very well told. There were some scenes in this book that were hot as hell and definitely steamed up the s [...]

    23. This story follows Ivy and Dax. Ivy is a strong willed lady,who's not had all the breaks in life. She spots Dax at a club, whilst all sorts of bad things are happening. She crosses Tristain who is a guy who comes from a very influential family. She finds herself kidnapped, and Dax is sent to mould and manipulate her, into complying to be Tristains dutiful wife. It's an interesting concept, and I enjoyed the story. We watch as Dax slowly falls for Ivy, and how Ivy seizes the opportunity of escape [...]

    24. Fighting Fate by Scarlett Finn is a dark and twisty novel about an unlucky girl in Vegas and the Mafia enforcer that ends up taking her.If you enjoy a novel that embodies the darkness in people with eventual redemption but a rough and painful journey to get there then this is for you. You will quite probably join me in shaking your proverbial fist at Dax's behaviour and bad attitude and bemoaning Ivy's terrible luck.

    25. I received this book for an honest review. To be honest at first I didn't know about this book, but I kept reading and I soon started to like it. It is dsrk, suspenseful, but yet it's sexy. Dax and Ivy have a very interesting relationship which goes from bad to better to wow! I do t want to give too much away but you should read this if you like page turners!!

    26. What an awful, AWFUL book. Honestly I cannot believe how fucked up it is. I hated every second of it. Trigger warning// He is a disgusting, rapist, abusive psycho. How can I be expected to forgive a 'hero' who sits on a girl's legs to let his friend/boss/weird brother person rape her. SERIOUSLY??? Then he told her girls like her get whats coming to them. THIS HAPPENED IN THE FIRST 3 CHAPTERS FFS!! My dumbass who hates leaving books unresolved carried on. The rapist guy has her kidnapped and this [...]

    27. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.I have mixed feelings about this book. It is about a woman named Ivy who loses her job when she would not allow a man with criminal ties to rape her at a Vegas club. She then loses her job, but her roommate gives her an ad with a job offer of becoming a live-in housekeeper. Unbeknownst to Ivy, it is a ruse to kidnap and break her spirit down, so her captors can mold her into the perfect wife for the man she refused in Vegas. One of her captors i [...]

    28. i loved them and then i hated them, and then i liked them, and just came back around to loving them again. I think it was great how He ended things with his family like he did. he was like "fuck all of you bitches, i'm out, leave me and my female alone and i don't care about any of you fuckers," i liked that. the books in general seemed to dark for me, because i don't really like putting myself in a situation where i feel bad because the main character is going through something horrible. like i [...]
