I fell in love with Sydney Hastings when I was ten years old.
At sixteen, we whispered promises of forever.
When I was twenty-two I broke them all. I left her and promised never to return.
After my father’s death, I’m forced to go home to Sugarloaf for six months. She’ll be everywhere, no longer just in my memories and regrets.
When we’re together, it’s as though time never stopped. She’s still the one I want, but I don’t deserve her. Instead of apologizing, I take that beautiful, broken woman in my arms. But after that, it’s her turn to leave me.
Now I have to fight. For her. For us. For the life we both want …

Second chance romances are some of my absolute favorite reads; I’m all about the hero and heroine sharing a history that lends credence to all of the feelings they have in the present, despite not seeing one another for a rather lengthy amount of time. And in Corinne Michaels’ newest Arrowhead Brothers’ story, Fight For Me, Declan Arrowhead and Sydney Hastings will hopefully have their second chance to be together, after having known each other since they were teens and forming a bond that was supposed to be unbreakable and everlasting, but unexpectedly turned into a goodbye, destroying everything they had built with not a single word of explanation.
It’s difficult when any relationship ends, but without any real discussion between them, Sydney has spent the years since Declan’s departure, finding her own path, establishing a career, moving forward as an adult, but keeping her personal life stuck in the past because the way things ended between her and Declan had no closure, which means that all of those feeling and memories can never truly be resolved or put to rest because they’re stuck in a purgatory of sorts, making it impossible to move on.
Like all of Corinne Michaels’ stories, Declan and Sydney’s story has all the feels – it runs the gamut of emotions: from anger, frustration, and heartache to sympathy, hope, and forgiveness. It’s not easy to come back in to someone’s life after leaving them behind without any warning or explanation, which means that in order for these two characters to have their happily ever after, they have to deal with the past, put it behind them, and focus on what’s ahead. But that’s easier said than done, so as their story unfolds, Michaels illustrates the struggles, the setbacks, and the unresolved/messy feelings that could lead to a second break up instead of a chance to be together again in the way that they still wanted, even when they were apart.
