Review: Fight from the Heart by L.B. Dunbar (Heart #4)
Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Wildfire Marketing Solutions.
If you've read L.B. Dunbar's Look with Your Heart, which is the third novel in her Heart series, then Pam Carter and Jacob Vincentia should be more than familiar characters. That being said, you don't necessarily need to read the book in order to enjoy this fourth one in the series--although the first three books are quite fantastic reads, so make sure to add them to your to-be-read list anyway! Jacob and Pam's story, Fight from the Heart, is a boss-employee romance. He's a forty-year-old bestselling author with the pen name of Jacob Vincent, and she's a thirty-six-year-old former EMT and blogger who becomes Jacob's personal assistant with a part-time job in a flower shop. The two forge a friendship, but Jacob has no idea that Pam has been in love with him for quite some time, and she has no idea he's had a thing for her for probably just as long. When a line is crossed, will they be able to go back to the way things were...and will they even want to?
I've been itching to read Pam and Jacob's story ever since I noticed how they interacted with each other in Look with Your Heart, and L.B. Dunbar did not disappoint. These two clearly shared a deep connection, especially given Jacob's issues when it came to trust. I liked how Pam saw beyond the persona of Jacob Vincent and saw Jacob Vincentia and appreciated both sides of this man that she loved completely. Their story has angst and a lot of it, but then if you're familiar with Dunbar's writing, then you'll know that she always does a fantastic job interspersing that with humor. Another favorite aspect of this book had to be seeing how protective and supportive of a sister Ella was with Jacob, with the two trading places as Jacob got his life together to be the best possible version of himself for Pam. Able to be read as a standalone, Fight from the Heart is a five-star read.
