Tara Hunter is a commercial diver for a diving and salvage company in Washington D.C. She is also a member of the Warrior Fight Club, an MMA training club for veterans. Tara learns that her one-night stand is actually the newest member of her dive team. She tries to maintain a professional distance between her and Jesse Anderson. Can Tara overcome her anxieties for Jesse? Or will their jobs stand in the way of their relationship?
Former Petty Officer Jesse Anderson pursues a new career in commercial diving. Washington D.C. promises a fresh start away from his past mistakes. Jesse hopes his one night stand with team member Tara does not jeopardize their work relationship. However, he wants more than one night. Can Jesse conquer his emotional demons for Tara? Can they overcome the obstacles in their way?
Tara is such an inspirational heroine. She is equal parts tough-as-nails and vulnerable. I like how Tara’s brush with death in the navy convinced her to live in the now. She knows there will always be difficult times, but she refuses to allow them to hold her back. I admire how Tara acknowledges her handicaps instead of denying their existence. It shows the inner strength she possesses. What I like most about Tara is how she gives Jesse back his family. Sometimes a non-family member’s point of view helps a person realize what they still have.
Jesse is such a sweetheart. I love how he honors and immortalizes his fallen comrades. He refuses to forget the sacrifices they made. I like how Jesse acknowledges and admires Tara’s skills as a diver. He does not let her gender cloud his opinions. I adore the fact that Jesse wants to adopt the pets no one else wants. What I like the most about Jesse is the care and silent support he demonstrates to Tara. He never revealed her anxiety issues to their team; instead, he discreetly tries to help her in small ways.
WORTH FIGHTING FOR is book 2.5 in Laura Kaye’s romantic-suspense series, WARRIOR FIGHT CLUB. It is also a part of Kristen Proby’s Crossover Collection. I am unfamiliar with Kristen Proby and her BIG SKY series. That, however, did not hinder my ability to follow the plot and characters.
WORTH FIGHTING FOR is a heartening tale of two wounded souls confronting their demons to be together. I did not want this story to end. I cannot wait for Dani and Sean’s book.
