The Good Fight by Andrew Grey

I went back to read The Good Fight after I read the sequel, The Fight Within, so I already knew what it was supposed to be of Jerry and John. That gave me the chance to concentrate on them as a budding couple, how they met, how they fell in love.

Probably the most unexpected development is the one of John. I’m true, I have this romance novel imagine of Native Americans, and I’m always expecting for them to be proud of their heritage, strong men and women who will fight for all the rights that should be theirs right from the beginning. Actually a little how it was in The Fight Within. But here John, while for sure pride, is also a man who is able to recognize he needs help and that help can arrives from Jerry, the man he is falling for. John is quite emotional, maybe a good thing in a relationship, but not so much when you are fighting for custody of two children. Jerry is a mainstay, someone who is able to ground John’s emotions and drive him steadily towards their happily ever after as a family.

I also liked that Jerry wasn’t some perfect nerd/geek guy, clever but naïve of real life; Jerry decided to “retire” to a small town after he had the chance to experiment the big city and deciding it wasn’t for him. He saw the bad and went back to a more comfortable environment, one where you know your neighbor, bad or good as they are, and in a way, knowing you possible enemy is a way to being able to face them. And after all, the enemy is not so bad, and you have all the chances to fight and win them over.
