Science teacher Rebekah Jamison lives a quiet life in the suburbs of Atlanta. Devastated by a tabloid scandal nine years ago, she ended her marriage to the man her parents never approved of.

Rafael Lopez, former professional wrestler and “Sexiest Athlete Alive,” regrets the lapse in judgment that caused him to lose his wife. He shows up unannounced one day with some startling news, but he gets a surprise of his own. He finds out he’s a father. To get to know his son, he whisks him and Rebekah off to his home in the Hollywood Hills for the summer.

When I think of Latin men, I think of men that are tall, dark haired, stunning facial features and delectable bodies. That is the type of men Delaney Diamond writes about in her Hot Latin Men series, and she does it very well. Fight for Love is number two in the series. This is a story about love lost, not forgotten and found again.

Rebekah Jamison had to grow up fast. She fell in love at seventeen to an amazing man, Rafael Lopez. After her father refused to allow them to get married, they ran off to Las Vegas and did it anyway. Rafael earned money fighting in the underground fight arena. Things were rocky, but it wasn’t until he was accepted into the wrestling amateur league that things got bad. Too much time apart, lack of communication, loneliness and betrayal tore them apart. Leaving Las Vegas and Rafael behind, she moved on because she has to. Rebekah is pregnant. Nine years later they are thrown back into each other lives. She has never gotten over her first love, but how can she ever get over the pain of Rafael’s infidelity?

Rafael is a retired professional wrestler. He made a name for himself quickly and retired early. When he showed up on Rebekah’s doorstep to tell her some unfortunate news, he got the shock of his life. He has a son. Instantly Rafael’s priorities change and he is bound and determined to make things right. He will earn Rebekah’s love and respect back. He has never been a loser and he is not about to start now.

Fight for Love is a steamy read. The passion is apparent right from the start. I think my one disappointment was how fast they fell back into each other’s arms. It is really hard to fault the story though, because Ms. Diamond made it clear that they both still loved each other. I really liked this book and I could have easily seen this story written as a full sized novel. I was captivated by the characters and enjoyed their journey to find love again.

If you like your heroes tall, dark and handsome, and let’s not forget spicy, then you need to pick up this book or even this series. You won’t be disappointed!
