REVIEW : Fight Dirty by Emily Goodwin

Owen Dawson is one of Eastwood’s most eligible bachelors. He could have any woman he wants, but when it comes to settling down, he only has eyes for Charlie Williams, and he blew his chance with her years ago. While Owen is busy trying to convince everyone—and himself—that the playboy life is for him, Charlie is trying to put her life back together.

After discovering her fiancé was cheating on her, Charlie packs her bags, leaves her fancy New York job, and goes back to the one place she never thought she’d return to: home. Determined to start over and stay far, far away from men, the last thing Charlie needs in her life is her first love, Owen…and the old feelings that come rushing back the moment she lays eyes on him.

While Charlie swears to avoid romance of any kind, Owen is willing to do whatever it takes to prove he’s a changed man and win Charlie back…even if it means fighting dirty.

I don’t know how someone can go from making my panties melt off to then making me laugh like this. But that’s Owen fucking Dawson for you…..


I didn’t think I could love the Dawson family more than I already do, but Owen Dawson stole my heart, along with Charlie. I would give this story a million stars if I could.

Owen, Logan’s identical twin, the only single Dawson and a self-proclaimed player, lost the only girl he ever loved and regretted it from the moment it happened, but it was what he thought was best. If he could get her back, he would and he wouldn’t be afraid to fight dirty to do it.

Charlie, oh how I love her. When she told off her ex-fiance I was instantly rooting for the girl! She left her job at a NYC law firm and her apartment to move back to Eastwood and moved back in with her parents and working for her fathers law firm.

One thing about being back in her small town, running into Owen. The man who completely shattered her heart. Will she be willing to give him a second chance? Will she believe he changed?

Owen and Charlie quickly became my favorite couple out of the entire Dawson family series. I loved their second chance at romance. Owen and Charlie had perfect chemistry. Their banter was on point, their relationship was sweet, it was steamy, made me laugh a few times and it was everything you could ask for. Owen is willing do anything to prove he has changed, that he does want more. He is swoon-worthy and the way he takes care of his nephew and nieces?! It’s so sweet and no one could resist his charm, especially Charlie.

I love the continuing glimpses we get of the rest of the Dawson crew and how meddling they are when it came to Owen and Charlie, especially Quinn! I love the Dawson Family and I did not want this book to end. I don’t think I am ready to say goodbye to this family.

Fight Dirty can be read as a standalone, but the entire series is MUST READ!
