Book description:

Forgiving your brother’s murderer may be noble, but falling in love with him borders on betrayal.

When Paige Zukowski enrolls at Granton University in honor of her dead brother, she has no idea fate will land her on the same campus with the very guy who killed him. But Logan Xander isn’t quite the murderer she’s always believed him to be.

A day hasn’t passed since the tragedy that Logan doesn’t wish he could go back and undo everything. It doesn’t take Paige long to realize he’s suffered as much as she has. Forgiving him for ruining her life might not be so impossible after all. But when she actually starts to like him and realizes he likes her in return, their true anguish begins.

Review:

STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING!

Did you stop? Ok, now, GO BUY THIS BOOK!!

Rarely, in my time blogging and reviewing books, have I come across a book that stayed with me SO MUCH that I needed to read it for a second (*cough and third cough*) time, THE FOLLOWING DAY. Damn this story really got to me. It was heart-wrenching and utterly amazing. I thought it was perfect. Absolutely incredible! ♥

Paige is still grieving over two tragic deaths in her family: her mother’s and Trace’s. After her brother Trace passed away, she decided she was going to attend his dream school and try to (essentially) live the rest of his life for him, to honor his legacy. She never, in a million years, would have imagined the person she holds responsible for his death be in her class. O_O

Logan is misunderstood, sad and an emotional wreck. He only meant to rile Trace up, not for him to start a fight, let alone die right in front of him from a punch he threw. Now his life has spiraled down and he has no one. Not even his own family wants anything to do with him. He’s alone with all his grief and disappointment. He’s been trying to get by with doing some activities around campus, but he still feels so lost. Now that he realizes the boy he killed has a sister and is attending his same school, he’s scared that he won’t have anywhere else to go. 😥

Don’t you just want to cry already?! *sigh* I’m completely in love with this story, and Linda Kage for her writing style.

While reading, my heart palpitations went into overdrive. When I experience those, I know the book is most likely going to a 5 star read and that’s exactly what I got with Fighting Fate, I’m a big fan of dual points of view, because I get to experience what the other character is thinking while they’re interacting. However, I must say, the hardest parts were reading Logan’s inner voice. AHHHH!! He feels the weight on his shoulders, and my goodness, I felt it with him. I wanted to burst in to tears in almost every chapter because he’s trying so hard to be good and makeup for what he’s done. He’s a martyr in every way.

Then Paige, with her confused thoughts, about wanting to forgive but then thinking that it would be spitting on Trace’s memory. Another “AHHHH!!” moment! I loved her! She was a character that I really wanted to hug, have sit down and just listen to her talk. She needed to vent, scream, cry, and curse, for all that she’s been through.

I can fangirl talk about this book all day… Just do me a favor, and pick up this fabulous read! You won’t be disappointed! 🙂
