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 . . .

OMG what a difference THREE YEARS can make! So Fighting To Be Free (book one) ended with a cliffhanger, and boy was I waiting for this book to come! I figured Worth Fighting For would pick up where Free left off but I was soooo wrong. It picks up three years later and both main characters have grown and changed so much, I loved it.
Their lives took them in different paths I didn’t see coming. Ellie living in London and Jamie and his surprising life change. BUT Ellie has come back to town for a heart breaking reason that I’m not going to disclose. When Jamie and Ellie see each other for the first time in three years the underlying sparks are still there, but the hurt and heartbreak is still there as well. They have lots of obstacles to overcome, not mention the new LOVE in Ellie’s life!!!
Gah this book for me lived up to the first. I loved the story told and still loved the characters. This series one that I recommend to all the mature young adult and new adult readers, they hit all the right spots for me.
“’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.
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.
