How long would you wait for the love of your life?
The Asher Bailey who comes home to his quirky small town isn’t the same man who put a ring on Grace’s finger. He’s bigger, harder, haunted. Forced to give up Grace and everything else that was good in his life for a prison sentence he barely survived.
Now that he’s home, he finds himself aggressively welcomed by his brothers and gleefully gossiped about by his neighbors. He’d counted on both.
But he never expected to see Grace still wearing his ring.
Grace’s fairy tale didn’t end. It was interrupted. She’s spent the last seven years living her life while waiting for one man. Now that he’s back, she’s got her work cut out for her. He’s scarred and angry, and stubbornly convinced they can’t be together. She’s more than happy to educate him otherwise.
Every beer, every prank, every kiss brings him closer to where he’s always belonged. In her life. In her arms. In her heart.
Asher fears the darkness inside him can’t be contained. But Grace won’t give up on him without a fight.
Author’s note: A brooding, wounded hero and the woman who won’t give up on him. A pack of unruly, prank-loving brothers. A wild neighborhood rumor mill. Spectacular BFF banter. This is a love story about soulmates that delivers the heat and all the feels. The Bailey Brothers series is meant to be read in order and Fighting for Us concludes Grace and Asher’s happily ever after.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
I went right from reading Protecting You (Bailey Brothers #1) into Fighting For Us and I am so glad I was able to binge read because I could not put this book down! Technically, Fighting For Us is a standalone, but it’s so much better to read with the context of Grace and Asher’s origin story in Protecting You. Plus, you get to meet the wild Bailey brothers in Book #1, so there’s that. Trust me, you want to know these guys!
After seven years in prison, Asher is released from jail — and doesn’t know what to do with himself or his life. He’s had zero contact with his family — not even Grace. It broke his soul, but it was the only way he was able to survive being locked up. And Grace never gave up on their love, even when people thought she was insane for staying faithful to Asher.
Seven years ago, they had a fight… or was it a break-up?
I loved how even though these two came back together, but he was still holding back. Asher was so afraid that his demons (as a result of being in prison) would destroy Grace even worse than when he turned his back on her all those years ago. But her love for him is just so big, her faith in them as a couple is just so strong, it brings Asher through his darkest hour. And dirty-talker Asher is so freaking hot!
Another great aspect of this book was how Claire Kingsley shows how Asher’s prison sentence affected his whole family. It wasn’t just Asher who had to deal with being locked up. His brothers and Grace and even Gram suffered while he was gone. We saw some of what the brothers went through, but there will be more to come as the rest of the Bailey boys get their due. I legit screamed at the end of the epilogue with that tease for the next book to come!
I know how much of her own heart and soul Claire Kingsley put into Asher and Grace’s story, and it shows! This is an epic, tragic, heartfelt, healing love story, and a fantastic start to a new series by one of my favorite authors!
