Forgiving your brother's murderer may be noble, but falling in love with him borders on betrayal.
When Paige Zukowski enrolls at Granton University in honor of her dead brother, she has no idea fate will land her on the same campus with the very guy who killed him. But Logan Xander isn't quite the murderer she's always believed him to be.
A day hasn't passed since the tragedy that Logan doesn't wish he could go back and undo everything. It doesn't take Paige long to realize he's suffered as much as she has. Forgiving him for ruining her life might not be so impossible after all. But when she actually starts to like him and realizes he likes her in return, their true anguish begins.

Author’s Favorite Quotes from Fighting Fate
"Well the day we find him on the top of a roof, waving a gun at everyone, don’t you come running to me and say I told you so, because…because I told you so."
Linda: I liked having the drunk girl of the group—Tess—foreshadow what was going to happen!
Slowly, he opened his lashes and rolled his head against the wall, lulling it her way until their gazes met. He looked exhausted and beaten. Broken.
Linda: This was just a sad line I really liked.
Scowling at both her suitemates as their stares followed every move Logan made, she stepped partially in front of them to block their view and crossed her arms over her chest.
Lifting an eyebrow, she asked, “Do you mind?”

Linda: I thought this was funny. It's one of the reason I loved Paige's suitemates!
When she realized the smell wasn’t coming from the room, but from the boy tending to her, her eyes flew open in horror. Oh God, she must be totally out of it if she thought Logan Xander smelled good. Clean. Like mountain spring fresh dryer sheets and spearmint gum.
Linda: This was one of the first moments Paige realizes how aware she was of Logan as a guy, that’s why I liked it.
“I could count the reasons you made me love you, one for each strand of beautiful hair you have. Or…or I could show you.”
Linda: This is why I loved Logan. He says a few swoon-worthy things!
“Do you think it’s possible to forgive someone for what they did and move on as if it never happened? I mean, if it was something so bad it changed your entire life forever, and what they did could never be undone, but you knew they never meant any harm and were sorry for their actions?”
Linda: This was said by Paige, and kind of just sums up the entire theme of the story.
