Review: Worth Fighting For - Laura Kaye
Commercial diving instructor Tara Hunter nearly lost everything in an accident that saw her medically discharged from the navy. With the help of the Warrior Fight Club, she’s fought hard to overcome her fears and get back in the water where she’s always felt most at home. At work, she’s tough, serious, and doesn’t tolerate distractions. Which is why finding her gorgeous one-night stand on her new dive team is such a problem.
Former navy deep-sea diver Jesse Anderson just can’t seem to stop making mistakes—the latest being the hot-as-hell night he’d spent with his new partner. This job is his second chance, and Jesse knows he shouldn’t mix business with pleasure. But spending every day with Tara’s smart mouth and sexy curves makes her so damn hard to resist.
Joining a wounded warrior MMA training program seems like the perfect way to blow off steam—until Jesse finds that Tara belongs too. Now they’re getting in deep and taking each other down day and night, and even though it breaks all the rules, their inescapable attraction might just be the only thing truly worth fighting for.

Tara and Jesse hit it off immediately when they meet in a bar, bonding over shared experiences and intense chemistry they're both more than willing to start a hot affair but it all goes horribly wrong when they realise they're going to be working together. Tara lost her career in the Navy, and very nearly her life, in a horrifying underwater accident and it's taken all her courage to get back into the water as part of a commercial diving team. It's still hard to keep her focus and she really can't afford any distractions when she's on the job so being attracted to her new dive partner is her worst nightmare.
Jesse has already made a lot of mistakes and this new job was supposed to give him a fresh start so he really shouldn't be mixing business with pleasure by getting involved with Tara no matter how much he wants to. Working side by side isn't going to be easy though, especially when they already have a connection that goes far beyond simple sex.
Worth Fighting For is a fabulous instalment of the Warrior Fight Club series, Laura Kaye always manages to create such realistic characters, people you can imagine hanging out with and being friends with and I loved both Tara and Jesse. They're both complex characters who are fighting their own demons but no matter how much they want to resist each other the spark is too bright to ignore. The romance between them was really sweet and tender as well as being totally hot and I just enjoyed every minute of their story. I also love the sense of camaraderie between the diving team and the members of the Warrior Fight Club, it was great to catch up with previous characters and get glimpses of future heroes and heroines too.
This story is part of the Kirsten Proby Big Sky Crossover Collection, I believe Jesse has made previous appearances in that series but I've not read it so I can't tell you which books he shows up in. I can confirm that I wasn't at all lost reading this as part of the Warrior Fight Club books though so you don't need to be familiar with the Big Sky books to enjoy this. Laura Kaye has been a favourite author of mine for a long time now and I'll be eagerly awaiting her next release.
