Sometimes in life you have to walk away . . .

Leaving Jamie Cole was the hardest thing Ellie Pearce ever had to do. Somehow, she moved on. She made a new life in a new city with a new man. So when a family tragedy calls Ellie back home, she believes all her old feelings for Jamie—the hunger, the heat, the heartbreak-are safely behind her. But the second she lays eyes on him, the intensity of their connection is as strong as ever.

Sometimes you stay and fight . . .

Jamie knows pain. He's felt it fighting in the streets, and he felt it fighting to survive in prison. Yet nothing he's experienced has been as painful as the day Ellie left—until the moment she came back. This time Jamie is determined to hold on to Ellie forever. But as much as she still loves him, she can't ignore the dark world he's now a part of. Jamie has enemies. Dangerous ones. And after seeing Jamie with Ellie, they know exactly how to take him out . . .

 My Review

Worth Fighting For is the conclusion to Jamie and Ellie’s story and I have a confession to make, I didn’t realize this was the sequel to a book until I was already reading it. So while I don’t recommend this, because I am sure I missed out on so much I was able to enjoy their conclusion. 

The story was told from dual point of view and even not knowing their past I knew these two shared an amazing love. I also knew that their love would conquer all. Jamie and Ellie ended things years ago and both have moved on. Ellie is living in England and Jamie is running an organized crime ring. When devastation comes to Ellie’s family she returns and Jamie is there because time and circumstance can’t keep him away. 

The story has a lot going on, but it didn’t feel like too much or over the top. It was just enough angst to pull me and keep me guessing. I can honestly say I didn’t see things coming and I was so pleased with the outcome for these two. This story is so involved and featured so many twists that I don't want to spoil anything. Just know although, I read these out of order I do plan to read their original story and see how their love started because I am definitely sold on their love story. 

ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. 


“’Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” Alfred, Lord Tennyson, said that in some poem in the 1800s. In my opinion, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, was full of shit.
Maybe Lord Tennyson had never truly loved someone; maybe he’d never cared for someone else more than he cared for himself, because if he had, if he’d loved someone so deeply he’d been willing to die for them, how could he have written such a horseshit line? I’m merely speculating, of course. I’m no academic, so I know nothing about the guy other than that one quote. So how then, you may ask, does my opinion so vehemently disagree with his?
Because I was in love once.
Only once.
And I lost her.
And I would give any fucking thing in the world to have never loved her at all. No, it most definitely is not better to have loved and lost..
Fuck love. And fuck Lord Tennyson.
