Publisher's Summary

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 heard in order and Fighting for Us concludes Grace and Asher’s happily ever after.

Believe in Love

What an emotional conclusion to Grace and Asher's story. There are lots of highs and lows in this one that will have readers feeling all the feels. I liked that the conflict was more internal for this couple, as they tried to confront and overcome their personal demons. I felt that the story unfolded in a realistic way and appreciated that there wasn't some magic bullet that righted all the wrongs. Our characters struggle and stumble, but that only made me root for them harder. Plus, the chemistry between Grace and Asher is scorching hot and some of their scenes will leave you a little breathless. I will say that my favorite character of the book though is probably Cara. Any time she was on the page she completely stole the show. Cara brought some wonderful comic relief to the story and I loved all the sparks between her and Logan. I'm hoping to see things progress between them as the series goes on. The narration by Aaron Shedlock and Samantha Cooke was outstanding again and they were the perfect Asher and Grace. Fighting for Us sets up future books very well and I'm looking forward to getting to know each of the Bailey Brothers better. The epilogue has me dying to start broody and grumpy Evan's book right away! Note: Fighting for Us is not a standalone and should only be read after enjoying Protecting You first.

Lacks originality

Same story as Release by Aly Martinez. Lacks originality, character development. Story not cohesive. Also, author states this is to be read after Book 1; however, audible does not carry book 1. What's up with that? Aaron Shedlock did a good job narrating. UPDATE: I see that Audible posted Book 1 the following day. If you're going to risk this read, probably should start there. I'll pass.

Perfect ending for Grace and Asher story

This book is the completion of Asher and Grace’s story. After Asher’s return, he not only encounter Grace but his whole family waiting for him. As anybody in their situation, they both had demons to slay to get their HEA. Claire writes a beautiful story with heart, sensitivity, and humor you’ll get sucked in this book and love it! The narrators are perfection, and after reading the kindle version of the book I say: I love this book even more now!

Excellent listen

These narrations are the perfect listen for evening enjoyment. Asher and Grace's story continues with soothing narration and all the angst that second chance love deserves. This was a beautifully written story and it is a more compelling narration.

Strong men and the women who love them

☑ Close-knit siblings ☑ Tight family bond ☑ Hot alpha heroes ☑ Strong women who love them ☑ Scorching hot sexy-time This series has all that and more! A spin-off of the wildly addictive Miles Family series, the Bailey Brothers series does not disappoint. The beginning of the series, Protecting You and Fighting for Us, is a two-part introducing to the Baileys, their unique hometown, the generations-long feud with another family, squirrels on secret missions, a hidden treasure, and the story of Asher Bailey and Grace Miles whose love endured through years of hardships. The narrators for the first two books of the Bailey Brothers series were absolute perfection in their roles. Aaron Shedlock voiced a completely believable 11-year-old Asher's take on his relationship with Grace, a 21-year-old Asher realizing he's in love with Grace, and an almost 30-year-old Asher facing a different life than he imagined. Samantha Cooke was amazing in voicing the pivotal scene of the first book - the confusion and fear experienced by Grace in this scene were palpable. And, in the second book, voiced a more mature Grace with determination, hope, and anger. I highly recommend this series!

Loving this series!

There is no doubt in my mind that this is Claire Kingsley’s BEST work! Asher and Grace’s story consumed me and Aaron Shedlock and Samantha Cooke brought this story to LIFE. From beginning to end, I fell in love with this emotional, angst-filled story. The narrators did a wonderful job in bringing the two main characters' amazing connection to the forefront of this story. I love a good small-town family romance that has all the feels and this is just what I needed!

I love the push and pull between Grace and Asher!

I first read Fighting For Us when it was released back in May, and it was even better the second time around, on audio! 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! Like in Protecting You, narrators Aaron Shedlock and Samantha Cooke nailed their performances of Asher and Grace! Aaron perfectly brought to life how haunted and lost Asher is upon his release, while Cooke brilliantly dug into all of the hopes and fears and crushed dreams that Grace has been holding on to for the past 7 years. When she finally lets go and lashes out at Asher -- I listened to that scene three times! 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!

Asher Bailey. SWWWOOOOOOONNNNNN!

Asher Bailey. That man. You know he's something special. You just have no idea how much he's worth fighting for. He's so good. And loving. He just has trouble expressing that these days. And I don't blame him. He's not the same man from seven years ago. He's lost some of that innocence. But he's worth every single minute you spend with him.

You dont have to Fight for this book!

I love that Claire used Aaron and Samantha again for the same characters! MIND BLOWN- This is the best book Claire has written to date. It's a long road to recovery for Asher Bailey- a surprise early release does not prepare him for whats waiting on him from the outside....that being Grace. Grace is nothing but patient for Asher but he is battling himself internally not thinking he is good enough....he is too messed up. Grace is also battling her own ghosts, good thing she has her friend Cara #friendshipgoals. The banter between Logan and Cara i'm totally shipping them! While pulling up floors Grace and Asher discovered a secret compartment with a box of letters and a Mysterious E, being Eliza Bailey- Who is she? While trying to find information at the library someone is covering something up. Back to Grace and Asher finally after he got his head of his butt he finally saw what Grace was seeing all along, she also had her own ghosts to work on like going places alone. Finally they both start seeing therapists and on the road to recovery. A HEA for them cant wait to see Grace Prego! The cliffhanger with Evan, what was on the counter...counting the seconds until the next book!

Brilliant loved it

5* We return to the story of Asher & Grace from protecting us. Grace is upset to find Asher has been released without anyone letting her know. Asher refused contact with everyone in order to cope so has had no idea what's been going on while he's been away. I've waited patiently for the conclusion of Asher and Grace's story and as usual Claire didn't disappoint, the story had all the feels, the frustration, the laughs, the hot scenes and the tears. Brilliant loved it
