We return to Laura Kaye’s Warrior Fight Club series with Jesse Anderson and Tara Hunter’s story. Although this novel is part of the Kristen Proby Big Sky Crossover Collection this story does not take place in Cunningham Falls, Montana. The link for Worth Fighting For to the series, is Jesse, who is Willa’s (Waiting for Willa) elusive and rarely mentioned brother.

She was just easy to talk to and be with…

Loved this addition to the Warrior Fight Club series! And this has been another book in the Big Sky Crossover collection that I've really enjoyed. Tara and Jesse were both really fun to get to know and I thought the connection to both series was handled perfectly.

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 ...more

After a one night stand with the sexy Jesse Anderson, Tara Hunter hopes things can continue but she never expects to find out that Jesse is her new coworker on her commercial diving team. After a near fatal accident ended Tara's military career, she can't afford any distractions on the job no matter how much she wants something real with Jesse.

Tara Hunter and Jesse Anderson met as strangers in an empty bar. Over late night nachos, interest develops that leads to continued conversation and a night neither wants to end. They may have found a connection, but the moment they find out they work together, the brakes go on hard. Jesse doesn’t want to make any more mistakes on the job, and Tara needs to keep her focus. But that connection they felt on their first meeting is strong and isn’t easily ignored, especially when Jesse starts to atte ...more

I really enjoyed this book. It’s my favorite so far in the Warrior Fight Club series (but it definitely reads well as a standalone so don’t be afraid to jump right in) and my favorite of the crossover collection books I’ve read so far. Tara and Jesse were both great and I loved them both. You could really feel the connection between them. I liked the diving setting and the supporting characters. This book felt long for a novella- I still felt the depth of characters and story. I recommend!

Worth Fighting for by Laura Kaye is part of her Warrior Fight Club series and part of The Kristen Proby Crossover collection. This is a great read for those that love Laura and/or are new to her! I have read a few books by Laura Kaye and have truly enjoyed them! I have added all of them to my TBR! This one offers us a story full of emotions, hope, and recovery.

Tara and Jesse have a night to remember and it was supposed to end there but are later surprised to learn they will be working together.

*Audiobook Review*

Worth Fighting for was another great addition in Kristen Proby’s Big Sky Crossover Series. This was my first book by Laura Kaye and throughly enjoyed it. Jesse is Willa’s brother. He is somewhat disconnected from the family back in Cunningham Falls and feeling broken without the military. Tara is a commercial diver, a former Navy Diver dealing with some anxieties about her past. Jesse and Tara hook up for a one night stand. Their connection and chemistry were explosive! What th

I love this series so much. Wounded warriors making a comeback as civilians with all the support of more veterans. Oh--and a little bit of romance added in. I also follow the Big Sky series and was happy to see Jesse get flushed out more as a character.

Both of the main characters have served in the military. Because of that, they not only understand each other, they also know what it will take for them to let their barriers down and be loved. Both Tara and Jesse are carrying extra baggage but u

This one was really fun to read. I loved how Tara and Jesse met, how they shared a meal and just talked and of course later. With how they met I wasn't surprised when Jesse ended up working at Tara's job and how awkward it was for them. They dealt with things pretty good, but I hated how they held each other at arms length for the most part, but there were times when they gave each other much needed support.

I loved how Tara brought Jesse to Warrior Fight Club, that she shared that part of her li

Worth Fighting For (Warrior Fight Club, #2.5; Big Sky, #4.3) by Laura Kaye  

Laura Kaye takes romance up a notch. Worth Fighting For is an adrenaline junkie's dream. Jesse and Tara, not only celebrate the human spirit, but also show the determination of the heart. In a field that's as dangerous as it is rewarding, two risk takers learn how to navigate love. Kaye is not about making love an easy road, she thrives on the uphill battle.

4,5 stars!

Laura Kaye knows how to write romance and you can tell by how satisfied you feel with her novellas. It takes talent to write a shorter story without something missing and Worth Fighting For doesn’t lack anything! It has an adorable couple, a sexy first encounter and a slow burn romance full of emotions.

This is a great little novella in the Warrior Fight Club series, and it's also a crossover with Kristen Proby's Big Sky series.

Tara Hunter almost died in an on-the-job accident while on a dive in the Navy. After her medical discharge, she was at loose ends, and was scared to get back in the water again. Once she overcame that fear, she got a job working as a commercial diver, doing similar work to what she was doing before. Her job is everything to her, and she has ways she's found of keeping he

When Tara meets Jesse one night at the bar and ends up spending a super steamy night in bed with him, little does she know that she's just had a sexual encounter with her new partner. Oops! This book is worth reading just for the tension that fills the pages when these two meet the next day and realize how they know each other. I adored this part of the book and the rest of it as well.

After a very tense meeting, Jesse and Tara still have some unresolved sexual feelings for each other and both ar

These two know what sacrifice is…what it means to fall down and get back up, regardless of the personal cost, and now as civilians, they’re working to get their lives back on track remaining focused on what’s important…on what gives them peace amidst the chaos.

I always enjoy whatever Laura Kaye writes and this book was no exception. In this part of the crossover, we have Tara from the Warrior fighting club series and Jesse from the Big Skye series. He is Willa's brother which you might know if you are familiar with the latest Big Skye book. She and her brother might not have the best relationship, but she makes an appearance in this book!

I loved reading Tara and Jesse's love story. This is one of the books that is part of the crossover group with Kristen Proby. Jesse is the one connected to Cunningham Falls. Tara and Jesse meet at a bar by chance when neither one of them can sleep. The attraction is instant and the more time they spend talking, the more they enjoy each other's company. Both are running from something in their past, but yet they feel connected to each other. After spending a glorious night together, Tara leaves e ...more

I'm loving Laura Kaye's Warrior Fight Club series, in part because of the way she tackles mental health awareness without using magic sex as a cure all, and because they are hot and emotional AF. IN this novella, Tara meets and hooks up with a delicious man named Jesse, sharing a wonderfully emotional night, before discovering he's her new coworker on the commercial diving team she's a part of.

Willa’s brother, that is how this book connects. I really enjoyed the whole story. Sometimes with shorts, you feel like your missing out on really getting to know the characters but I loved the way the author gave us a full story in a limited amount of time.

I really felt for both these characters, their chemistry is off the hook and they really didn’t see it coming heck neither did I!

I love how they talked things out and even if they were both disappointed in what they ultimately came to it st
