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…

This was a nice easy going read, I liked getting to know Jess

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 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

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.

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!

I don't think I'll ever get enough of this series and Laura's writing in general.

5 amazing stars to Laura's newest WFC story!

This in between novella in the Warrior Fight Club was simply amazing!
Another set of characters I fell in love with... HARD.

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.

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. The main character within a Laura Kaye story is not necessaril

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

Tara Hunter and Jesse Anderson are warriors in every sense of the word, fighting for their country and now themselves in hopes of conquering their demons, their scars and their fears. 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.

Tara and Jesse didn’t fight their attraction when they

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 Tara and Jesse's first meeting and how they bonded over food. Their story might seem light and breezy but a

I’m really glad I was part of the blog tour not only for this title but for two others as well because now I just want to devour Kristen’s Big Sky series! AND, I’ve had Laura Kaye’s series, Warrior Fight Club on my on-deck radar for a while now and it has gotten bumped up!! SO EXCITED!

Again, short sweet and to the point LOL A little bit of that tug-of-war between the leads added good tension to their chemistry. I enjoyed this one tremendously. It had heart and it was sexy. Well done!

This was a beautiful story. It was a pleasure watching Tara and Jesse fall in love. They hook up one night and then the next day, discover that they are now coworkers. The risks involved in their job means that a relationship could be distracting and dangerous and both try to fight their growing relationship and attraction to each other. Tara with her anxiety was relatable and it was encouraging to see her not let it from controlling her life. It was great to revisit with the other Warrior Fight ...more

First, I loved this story. It isn't often that you have a story told with two main characters both suffering from post-military issues. I kept going back and forth trying to decide who was the main character in this book when I finally decided they both were! Although, I will give a slight edge to Tara, a commercial diver who was medically discharged from the Nay after an on the job freak accident that almost killed her. Jesse, a former Navy deep-sea

After losing too many men and feeling the weight of those losses Jesse decides to retire. The night before his new job starts he finds himself sharing nachos with a beautiful woman (Tara ...more

I fell in love with Laura Kaye’s WFC series with the first book and the series keeps getting better with every book. This is Tara & Jesse’s story. You do not need to read any of the prior books to read this one, but I highly recommend it, so you know who some of the other people at the fight club are and their backgrounds.

Once again Laura Kaye has given us another amazing story in her Warrior Fight Club series. “Worth Fighting For” is an impassioned tale of second chances, overcoming your fears and finding that one special person who will always be by your side.

Jesse and Tara are Navy veterans who both have demons to conquer, which had kept them from being happy and feeling loved. I could feel Tara’s agony each time she was faced with a difficult task or decision. Her pain radiated from the pages, making me wish
