Title: Worth Fighting For
Author: Laura Kaye
Series: Warrior Fight Club #2.5; Big Sky #4.3
Veteran Tara Hunter wants to see more of her sexy one night stand but what she doesn’t expect is for him to be the new guy at her commercial diving job. Will they be able to make a relationship work while staying professional at work? Or is their relationship over before it’s even started.
As with all Laura Kaye books, this was an emotional one. These two were so sweet and I loved every minute of their story. Tara was a strong heroine who has overcome a lot to be able to do the job she loves. She still suffers from anxiety and panic attacks, but she manages them and it doesn’t interfere with her job. You can see her confidence in her diving build the more she gets into the water.
Jesse left the Navy after putting in his twenty years but now he is struggling to figure out what he wants to do with himself. He also is struggling to feel like he is good enough because he grew up being told he never was. Now he is filled with guilt and fear of messing up. Meeting Tara was the best thing that could happen to him, especially since she invites him to the Warrior Fight Club and he finds the brotherhood he has been missing.
Tera and Jesse were just a great couple. They had great chemistry, they were supportive, and they could lean on each other when they needed to. This was just a beautiful and heartbreaking story that I couldn’t put down, which is why Kaye is one of my favorite contemporary romance authors.
