Jennifer Ann’s Fighting for Phoebe is easily one of my top reads of the year.
This novel has so many elements that create a complicated, incredibly entertaining story that will leave you breathless.
Ms. Ann has managed to weave a tapestry of suspense, mystery, action and heart-stopping romance that will keep you riveted and thoroughly enthralled until you have consumed every last word of this compelling, thought-proving read.
Fighting for Phoebe is the story of Jace Daniels, a marine who is investigating the circumstances surrounding a friend’s sudden death overseas. He fears that there has been a conspiracy that has trickled down from the highest ranks of the military and he is determined to ferret out the truth, regardless to the risk that it poses to his career in the Marines. Fearing for his personal safety and hoping to avoid becoming a target himself before he can notify his friend’s family, he goes on the run.
Along the way he encounters Phoebe Carson, a troubled young woman with a heart-breaking past and controlling, borderline abusive mother who has found herself in an unfortunate situation involving domestic violence. Jace rescues her from an altercation with her violent, mentally disturbed ex and the two embark on an incredible journey as they both seek to escape from their own set of demons.
Jace and Phoebe’s chemistry was on fire from the jump; Jace instantly notices Phoebe’s beauty and Phoebe cannot help but appreciate Jace’s tatted, muscular physique and his sexy, attractive nature. They are drawn to each other and eventually act on their attraction. It is hot, it is steamy and their passion practically lept from the pages!!
My heart pounded and my eyes widened while I was reading. At several points my jaw dropped in shock at some of the surprising revelations that are revealed, particularly towards the end of the novel as Jace and Phoebe discover some unsettling truths and ultimately solve the mystery that brought them together in the first place.
Secrets were exposed that left me rattled, astonished and just plain amazed. It is a true testament to the author’s fabulous story-telling ability that I never saw these eye-opening events coming, and when the literal **** hit the fan I was blown away. Quite frankly it made me want to immediately start the book over again just so that I could try to pin-point any potential clues that I had missed!
Jennifer Ann is an unbelievably talented writer. Fighting for Phoebe was my first experience with her work and if this novel is any indication of what I can hope to experience when I read more of her writing then I will be there with bells on to purchase more of her intoxicating tales of romance, passion and intrigue.

Overall: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ + 1/2 stars!
Jace Daniels is undeniably sexy.
I mean who doesn’t like the muscular, tattooed type who’s all mysterious and brooding? But he’s on the run from something dangerous, and I have enough of my own problems.
My existence has revolved around deception for as long as I can remember. Sometimes lying is like a damn disease…one I’ve been exposed to since birth. And as many times as I’ve dreamed about running away, my mother’s grasp on me runs deep.
Phoebe Carson is hot as hell.
She’s not just gorgeous, but quirky and a lot of fun. Even though I can’t afford to get involved with anyone, I feel a need to protect her from her psychotic ex.
After a failed attempt to expose the truth about a fellow Marine’s disappearance, running was my only option. I don’t know how much time I have until they’ll arrest me, but I’m determined to make things right.
When their paths collide, the passion is so explosive that neither of them can walk away. But once the truth unravels, proving it’s more than fate that brought them together, will Jace still decide she’s worth fighting for?
