Fight Dirty by Emily Goodwin – Book Review

Here is my no-spoiler review of Fight Dirty by Emily Goodwin (5/5 stars)

Fight Dirty is the next instalment of the Dawson Family Series by Emily Goodwin, it can be read as a standalone novel or as part of the series.

Fight Dirty is set after the events of Cheap Tricks (read the review here), Owen Dawson is known for his ‘love them and leave them’ attitude, his high school sweetheart Charlie was the only girl he ever wanted more with, but he pushed her away and has regretted it ever since.

Charlie is leaving New York to return to her hometown of Eastwood after a split with her fiance, after years apart, Charlie and Owen are reunited and neither of them can deny that they still have a connection. Will Charlie give Owen a second chance? Can Owen prove to Charlie that he has changed from the boy she needs in College?

Fight Dirty is another beautiful love story by Emily that’s so easy to read and fall in love with. Her characters are always well written and relatable. Owen can be quite immature at times and could be considered arrogant but besides that, he does deeply care for Charlie and I loved reading about them and how they interacted with one another.

Charlie is really down to Earth and seems to ground Owen’s wilder side which made the chemistry between them so magical and fascinating to read. Along with all the other pairings in the Dawson Family series, they really complete the family.

I wish Emily Goodwin’s novels were longer and I truly hope that we get a Dawson family novel that completes the series and ties of any loose ends as I am not ready to say goodbye to them just yet. If you are a fan of romance that’s fast-paced and a little bit cheesy, then Emily Goodwin’s books are for you!

  2. This is a great review – I’m quite a fan of romances that actually started long before the book begins as I like the way you end up learning about the past at the same time as experiencing the present. I’ll have to check these ones out!
