Sexiest soccer player.  Top-scoring athlete.  America's favorite party boy. 

Jace Connor has received many titles in his career, and enjoyed them all. Although, he's working on changing the last one. There's more to Jace than the media portrays—a man who loves his tight-knit family, being his nieces' and nephews' favorite uncle. 

The reformed party-boy is now steering clear of anything that could blemish his reputation. But when the coach's gorgeous daughter is hired on as the team's new sponsorship manager,  keeping on the straight and narrow becomes impossible. Her warm and bubbly personality coupled with her sexy-as-sin body makes her irresistible. 

Brooke Derringer wants to prove to everyone that she wasn't hired due to her personal connections. She's determined to keep things strictly business and focus only on work. She learned the hard way that the office isn't the place to make friends.

But a certain smoking hot--and bossy--soccer player is determined to change her mind. Surprising her with clandestine dinners and late-night gym sessions, Jace is inescapable. 

For the first time in his life, Jace wants more. He wants the whole package…with the one woman he can't have. But Jace doesn't let that deter him. He's determined to fight for her. And he will.

    What an appropriate title!! Jace the hot soccer player with a playful funny side, who make heads turn when he enters a room. His relationship with Milo is awesome. His is very protective of his sisters. His love for his brothers is unmatched. Like the Bennett Family, I love the Connor Family!! Brooke, the new hire of the LA Lords. She wants to keep her head down and do a great job for the team and stay in the friendly zone. Her previous disappointments have left her fragile. But some how Jace has worked his way into her heart. Their story takes a journey that keeps you intrigued. You will want to read this book again and again!! I know I will!!!!!
  • Loved sexy soccer player Jace Connor's story

    By mj_toth
    Finally, sexy soccer player Jace Connor gets his story. Jace is great at causing trouble but is a fabulous brother and uncle. Getting famous playing soccer has turned him off of relationships after meeting too many women that want the fame and not really the man. Will he ever find someone that truly gets the man behind the glitz? Brooke has just gone through an awful breakup that involved her relationship and job. When she lands a position with the Lords soccer team to build the sponsorships for the club, she is very excited by the opportunity. She knows she can handle a group of cocky soccer players but when she gets to know Jace, well, she never expects this amazing loyal, thoughtful and sweet man. Does she even stand a chance as Jace keeps pushing at her boundaries? What will happen when the club finds out they are dating? I am so glad we got to experience all of Jace’s wonderfulness. His moments with Milo are priceless. The chemistry with Brooke is fabulous and she is great at not letting him get away with anything. Truly a wonderfully sexy romance to escape with.
  • Sweet and romantic

    4.5 stars I’ve been waiting for Jace’s book since Anything for You and it did not disappoint. As much as I love all the Connors, Jace is my favorite. I loved the relationship between Jace and Brooke. Layla did a great job building it up so that when it finally explodes, it was massive. Independently Brooke and Jace held their own. Jace was charming as ever and Brooke was fierce. I also enjoyed all the Connor family moments-they are always great. Fighting for You was sweet, fun, romantic, and pleasant. I’m excited for Hailey’s book next.
  • 5 star!!

    By Kat0206
    This is the 5th book the the Connor series. This was Jace and Brooke’s story. Jace is the soccer star of the Connors and Brooke was just hired by his team to head up sponsors for the team. It was love at first site. Their story is so sweet. Very steamy with a HEA. I received an ARC for an honest review. I’d give this 10 stars. So Romantic. It can be read alone but I encourage everyone to read the entire series
  • Jace is Officially Off the Market

    By Travelling Bookworm
    I love both the Bennett & Connor sides of the family. Jace is known to be a player both on and off the field. So when the coaches daughter, Brooke, is hired to handle the team sponsorships, she is off limits. Jace is quickly attracted to Brooke. Brook has left her previous job because she became too close with her fellow employees - her best friend and her boyfriend (who ended up having a relationship). She vowed to never become involved with fellow employees again. Of course, she and Jace became 'friends' but didn't stay in the friend zone for very long, no matter how hard they tried. An altercation between Jace and one of his fellow teammates at a gala caused Brooke to end up losing her job. The rest of the story I will leave for you to read to see how this affects Jace & Brooke's relationship. Do they get their HEA? You will need to read it to see. I love Layla Hagan and her series on siblings. They can be read as standalone books or as a series.
  • 4.5 stars for Jace and Brooke

    By BGreads
    Jace is the soccer star in the Connor family. He's also been the player, although recently he decided that he wanted a change away from that lifestyle. Enter Brooke. She's the new PR person at the Lords. Also, the coach's daughter determined to prove that she's more than her father's child. So you can see the dynamic here. Two decent people trying to figure out how to move forward but in such a way that preserves their integrity. I love Layla Hagen's books, they are sweet heartfelt tales with characters that you are rooting for. This one is no different, but interestingly I felt a few times that the story was going a little too fast. Sometimes I wanted her to pause and take time with the character working through their thoughts a bit more. So in the end, this is all the good stuff, but I could have had more of that magic, so 4.5 for me.
  • Jace’s hot stuff

    By penny42058
    Layla Hagen has given us another winner in the Connor Family series. Jace is a star player for the LA Lords and Brooke comes on board as the new sponsorship business development position. She recently got out of a relationship, with a coworker, so she’ll be friendly, but not too friendly at the club. Jace decides he’ll fight for Brooke and that’s exactly what he does. I won’t leave any spoilers, but I will say that it’s not all smooth sailing. Grab your copy and get ready to fall in love with all of these characters.

    By erickas28
    Amazing!! I’ve been waiting for Jace’s story and Layla did not disappoint. From the Bennett’s to the Connor’s each book has been my favorite when I’ve read them but Fighting For You is definitely at the top of my list. I knew Jace was going to have a big heart and make us all swoon and boy did he! Well done Layla! Definitely a must read and I’m now excited for Hailey’s story. I’m going to miss these families once all their stories are told... I think we are going to need a book on each family updating us on what they’ve been up to!?!
  • Sweet, sexy and beautiful!

    By KindleKat64
    I just love this Connor family! Somehow time after time Layla keeps giving us wonderful characters in which to fall in love with! I never think I can love one more than the other and then, well, Jace. Jace won me over from all the others in this book! He is simply everything wrapped up in a sexy, sweet athletic package, and he's totally swoonworthy! I adore him and Brooke together! She is perfect for him and vice versa. They have amazing chemistry and are each other's champion, their "person", which I totally love! So often you don't see a couple so involved in each others careers and I love that they have that connection. Brooke is amazing! She is so smart and drive and I love the way her mind works. From the get-go she makes Jace want things he never really wanted before. Watching their relationship blossom is such a treat, especially for a romantic. Things are not always easy for them, but nothing worth it ever is. Another wonderful story in The Connor Family series that left me with a full heart and a smile on my face.
