Release Blitz & Review: 2 Fights by Nikki Castle

January 25, 2022


2 Fights by Nikki Castle is now live!

A toxic ex.
A girl who lost herself.
A childhood friend helping her find the way back.

When Hailey finally ends her relationship with her narcissistic ex-boyfriend, she thinks all her troubles have ended. But what she doesn’t realize is that the wounds he inflicted aren’t on her skin, but in the way she sees herself. And the only person capable of helping her heal has been in her corner all her life.

Jax has had a soft spot for the younger Porter sister ever since his family moved into their neighborhood. It feels like the most natural thing in the world to go from helping her with math homework, to holding her hand through a rough breakup years later. But as he starts to show her how beautiful and worthy she already is, he himself starts to notice the incredible woman that she grew up to be.

While Hailey struggles to balance finding her strength with navigating her budding attraction to her older sister's best friend, Jax has to decide if his new feelings for Hailey are helping or hurting her journey.

Can Jax and Hailey start something new while the past is hovering over their heads? Or will Hailey’s scars hurt them both?

Nikki Castle won me over so much with her debut, 5 Rounds, that I decided to put 2 Fights on my TBR before I was even halfway finished reading it! On top of the fantastic romance between Remy and Tristan, I loved the MMA aspect of the novel as well as the amazing friendships and the sibling relationship between Remy and her sister, Hailey. Needless to say, all that gave me high expectations for this installment in the series, and thankfully, I wasn't disappointed in the least!

Hailey and Jax's chemistry was undeniable when they were only secondary characters in another couple's story, so when they finally take center stage, it's off the charts! They've known each other since Hailey was a just kid with a crush on her big sister's best friend. Over the years, that childhood crush turned into a solid friendship between her and Jax, but when Hailey finally gets out of a long term toxic relationship, their feelings for each other take a romantic turn. 

Jax is as swoonworthy as they come! He is sweet, sexy, strong, and protective. I love how selfless he is when it comes to Hailey. He's willing to try anything in and out of the bedroom to make her happy, but he's also willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to ensure she heals and lives her best life, even if that life doesn't include him. 

My heart hurt for Hailey. The mental manipulation and abuse she was subjected to by her narcissistic ex affected her to such an extent that she became a different person to keep her boyfriend happy and escape his wrath. Sadly, this happens all too often to women, and it's not discussed as much as physical abuse. I appreciate the way the author addressed this topic through Hailey's story. 

Overall, 2 Fights is emotional, well-written, and perfectly paced. I enjoyed the characters, the friendships, the familial relationships, the romance, and of course, the steam! I love a dirty talker! 😏 

Sports and contemporary romance fans, this one's for you! 

P.S. I'm hoping we get Aiden, Dani, and Max's story next. I'll be happy even if it's just Aiden and Dany's story. I do love a good menage though, so fingers crossed!
