I’m used to helping people fight for their lives. But I’ve never had anyone in my corner before…
The ER department is chaotic and intimidating to most. But for me, it’s one of the few places where I don’t feel like a disappointment. Heading up the team of a busy Philadelphia hospital isn’t exactly a picnic, but I’m confident here. Untouchable.
That is, until Carter Grange walks through the door.
He might be a little banged up, but that doesn’t stop his muscular frame rippling with power — or his deep blue eyes from piercing my soul. Carter is definitely not the sort of man I need right now, but when we find ourselves thrust together again by pure chance...well, the chemical pull is irresistible.
Problem is, I have a messy past snapping at my heels, and a young daughter to protect from its clutches. This tattooed mobster isn’t the kind of man I should be playing house with.
But when push comes to shove, will Carter step into the ring for us?
My Fight is book three of the Men of New York series by Samantha Skye. It is a suspenseful, single parent, opposites attract, reverse age-gap, dual POV mafia romance.

3 Heart Review by Ashley
Let me get this out of the way, My Fight is the first book I've read from Samantha Skye so I went in open minded, especially after the author's note at the start of the book.
I liked Catherine. She was savvy and smart and doing her best to make a brighter future for her and her daughter, Ivy. She thought she found found the path, until one fighter landed in her ER and shook things up.
I liked that Carter was thrown off his game by the good doctor. Especially when fate threw them back together. There was no denying their chemistry. These two steamed it up all over the place. But more than that, Cat brought out Carter's softer side, the side that longed for a simpler life. If only they could get ahead of the mess happening in NY.
The final third of this book, as all the pieces fell into place, had my heart pounding. Can you say dark and twisted? Whew! Catherine and Carter's opposites attract romance was steamy and scandalous. While I would've liked to feel a bit more of the emotional connection between them I was glad things ended the way they did for them.
