Summary

Micah is a small-town mechanic with a big-time dream. He’s found his soul mate in high school social studies teacher Coleman Pierce, but while Micah’s out and proud of it, Coleman’s closet door is closed, locked, and welded shut. Stolen nights are all they’ll ever have, unless Micah can find some way to convince Cole that coming out won’t be the end of his dreams.

Cole moved to Blueridge Junction to escape his past. He planned to make himself a new life, far from home and the betrayal he’d suffered there. He wasn’t going to make the same mistakes again, but he didn’t count on meeting Micah, or the intensity of the feelings the man arouses in him.

But Micah is out and Cole...isn’t. And while Micah definitely revs his engines, Cole isn’t going to risk his job or his newly minted future on a relationship that might not work out. When outside forces bear upon the couple, Cole is faced with a decision. Will he keep his secret and risk losing everything, including the man he loves? Or will he stand with Micah and fight for their future?

Fight for It is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to language, themes, and adult scenes.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4 or 5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

A good story :)

Story: I liked the story, the surroundings and the characters a lot! Promising more fun to come, the story is a great opening to the series.
Narration: while the narrator’s voice was nice and clear, I had trouble following dialogue at times due to very limited voices differentiation. Good overall, but not the best I’ve heard.

Great listen.

I love listening/reading about small towns and this is definitely a good one. Cole and Mitch's story felt so real. I just couldn't stop listening. A.D. Ellis has made such a real story that is still happening today and made such a beautiful story. Then Christopher Solon does a great job brings this story more life and I just couldn't stop listening.

A hook up turns into much, much more!

I read Fight for It when it was originally released back in 2017 and loved it. I recently finished listening to the audiobook performed by Christopher Solon and was reminded again of how much I loved this story. I don't find any other audiobooks on Audible by Christopher Solon. His performance was way too good for a newbie narrator so perhaps he also uses another name.

In any case, he did a great job with this book. I loved the different voices he used for the characters. His pacing and vocal inflections were right on point. I'm really looking forward to listening to the next book in this series and hope that he will be narrating it as well.

Below is a copy of my original review of Fight for It from 2017:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Fight For It is the first book in the new series from A.D. Ellis: The Blueridge Junction Boys. It has an HEA and also introduces several characters that will get their own books.

Blueridge Junction (BJ) is a small town and three families are considered a kind of "royalty" for their role in founding the town and keeping it alive.

Micah Edwards' family owns the local garage and Micah is the best mechanic for miles around. He wants to take over running the garage someday but his jerk father won't allow any "pansy ass" to manage the business. To say that Ed Edwards is homophobic would be putting it mildly.

Micah meets Coleman (Cole) Pierce through a hook-up app. Their chemistry is off the charts but Cole insists on no exchange of names and no contact outside of the time when they hook-up.

Imagine Micah's surprise, and Cole's dismay, when Micah finds out that Cole is the new Social Studies teacher at the high school. Cole was kind of run out of town, and lost his last teaching job due to homophobia. He's been working in a bank for the last two years until he finally got the courage to try teaching again. He won't live as an out-gay man in BJ for fear of once again losing the job he loves.

Wow, this story made me feel many things. Anger – certainly – at Micah's father and other idiots like him who want to run Cole out of town. Tears of sadness for what Micah and Cole are put through and must come to terms with if they are to find happiness with each other. Tears of joy when things finally work out. And laughter – the young-ish gay man named Jay is a hoot and manages to often inject some much-needed levity when things get too somber.

I loved the characters of Micah's best friends, Levi and Cody, and local law enforcement officer Kennedy Marks. Fight For It doesn't have a cliffhanger but Ms. Ellis certainly manages to leave this reader wanting to read individual stories; I can hardly wait for her to write them.

An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

Fight for ir

I got lost in the repartee between Jay and Levi. It was priceless and hilarious. I loved how Jay shares his snark and sass with all the characters throughout the story. Ed was a soulless beast, that should have been put in his place permanently. He was no parent! I loved seeing Cole get a backbone and stand up for himself. Perfect ending. I was glad to see Mitch do the right thing in the end. The narrator was good. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this story and am giving an honest review.

Great story

Micah meets Cole on a dating app and they keep things anonymous until a surprise encounter no longer allows that.

Cole wants to keep their relationship hidden due to past hurts and doesn't want to lose his job. Micah is hesitant but agrees.

But as they move forward in what they think they are hiding from others is noticeable. There is an awful person stirring trouble up and looking to run Cole out of town

Does he succeed? What happens with Coles job? Who does the community support? You have to read the book to find out. But these two men had to fight for their happiness

Narrator did a great job establishing separate characters and engaging me in the story

Micah & Cole

A good story of two men who fall in love but one of them, Cole, is very deep in the closet because of bad past experiences. The story flowed well and for me the best parts were between Levi and Jay, I'm very interested in their story. The narrator did a good with the story and the characters. I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy of this audiobook.
