Jaxson is arrogant, angry and aggressive. Yet he’s also beautiful, strong and honorable. I unconditionally and irrevocably love every damaged part of him. And for the boy, who didn’t believe in love, he would always and forever have mine. ~Julia Sinclair
Julia was different from anyone I’d ever met. I never thought someone so good and genuine existed until her. The more I saw of her the more I became addicted to her. Every time I was around her she would destroy some of the darkness that lurked inside of me. She made the bad shit in my life seem not so terrible. Then, before I knew it, I had fallen for a girl from another world. ~Jaxson Reid
Two unlikely friends—the innocent, good girl and the notorious bad boy. One fateful night brought them together, and they formed a bond—one so strong it was unbreakable—until one night they gave into temptation.
Fast forward five years and Jaxson is back to fix the mistakes he’s made with the only girl who’s ever mattered to him. Only someone isn’t happy with his return, someone who thinks Julia is theirs and they will stop at nothing to make sure it stays that way—forever.
Jaxson will not only fight to protect Julia, but will also battle the new and existing demons that haunt his soul from death, corruption, destruction and war.

Oh I do love a best friends to lovers romance.
I've had fighting temptation on my kindle for such a loooong loooong time and it was just the book to get me out of a book funk.
Jax is the kind of guy alI the girls drool over in school, he's a bit of a manwhore and he has that bad boy vibe.
Jaxson's father has given his family a bad reputation and it's like Jaxson just lives up to everyone's expectations of him, he's closed off and doesn't let anyone in especially the judgemental people in his town.
Jules and Jax meet officially when Jules visits her mother's grave late at night just wanting to spend time with her, her loss still hurts and she misses her mum, so after climbing from the window of the home she now lives in with her Gram's she goes to the cemetery
Jules puts herself in danger being in a secluded place late at night and is attacked, Jax hears screams while walking by and rescues Jules who is nearly a rape victim.
Jax becomes her protector and best friend from that night.
Jax never feels worthy enough for Jules and although Jules is in love with Jaxson nothing further develops from friendship.
I loved the journey in this book, Jax leaves for the Navy wanting to get out of a town that drags him down and Jules doesn't hear from him for years despite her efforts to contact him then following an incident were Jax is hurt badly he refuses to see her.
Jax infuriated me, got me annoyed and angry for the way he treated Jules at times but he was also a sexy possessive Ahole you can't help but love.
And Jules? well she frustrated me to with how forgiving she was over and over, I mean, let the guy suffer in guilt for a bit before you throw yourself at him but I suppose Jax was just that guy who was to hard to resist.
This is a story were hero saves heroine and heroine saves him right back. A love that is destined to be but has an a-hole alpha that is to stubborn to fall in love through fear that there could be a part of him like his father.
A great story and journey through the years of Jax & Jules which had everything that has the emotions up and down, hot sex scenes, a possessive alpha, Jax's hot friends, doting likeable girlfriends for Jules, danger, kidnapping, angst and humour, yep it has it all, I loved It!
I would never have guessed this was a debut book it's so well written and I am looking forward to more from KC Lynn, if this is her first her current writing must be awesome.
fighting temptation leads to hea and is told in first person dual pov.
