"Love is a powerful emotion. It can change your perspective on everything."

This book was my surprise "Blind Date With A Book" and I had a lovely time reading it. It's a cute best friends to lovers romance with potential.

"Listen with your heart, but let your head lead the way."

Liam was awesome. I wish I had such a best friend I could fall in love with. He always knew what to say and what to do. Having someone knowing you better than you know yourself is scary but such a wonderful thing t

I've read a couple of friends to lovers books lately but I wasn't bored at all because the stories are so different that even if they share the same trope.
Worth The Fight was a nice read that kept me glued to my reader for a whole day.

Cassidy and Liam have been friends for ages,they went to the same high school and college,they are so tight that sometime they raise the jealousy of their lovers.
When Cassidy's love life becomes a little harder the only person she wants next to her is her best fr

Beautiful, Bring tissues

As usually this author has the ability to open up my heart to allow the emotions to just flow out. There are so many things in this story you can track back to something in your own life or someone you know. This story makes you wonder how many times best friends fall in love with each other and never say anything out of fear.

The story about the best friends reminds me so much of my own parents. They grew up in each others baby pictures, but my mom was married a couple of

A friends-to-lovers romance you don't want to miss.

Cassidy and Liam have always been friends, and only friends. But when Cassidy leaves her fiance at the altar and moves in with Liam, the ground beneath them begins to shift, forcing Cassidy to see Liam in another light.

The question becomes... is taking a chance with Liam worth the risk of losing him forever?

Friends to lovers is a pretty common theme for books, and that is what this one is. It was sweet and the story was interesting. The characters were believable and I liked all of them. Of course, two of them were the "evil villains" of the story, but they were good characters even if they were bad people. It made me happy that Liam and Cassidy only had a minor hurdle to cross once Cass realized her feelings, and there were some other incidents, but nothing that threatened to end their relationshi ...more

Cassidy is having one of the worst days possible. She’s finding it hard to turn that around to finding the best day possible. Liam is a friend whose there when you need him. He’s a man who has the protector role down pat. Our author does a great job in creating a man who is perfect book boyfriend material. He almost seems too good to be true. But then again, maybe he has an incentive.

Our author has created something that seems so realistic. We have a woman whose had the rug pulled out from under

Amazing best friends to lover’s story. Not even sure what to say… I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story, it will grab you from the start and not let go until you’re done. Once I started this, I couldn’t put it down. Found myself trying to find quiet spots where I would be left alone, to finish this one.

A friend to lovers romance you will not want to put down. I instantly fell in love with Liam and Cassidy. The entire story and characters are so relatable that I found myself wishing I could interact with them. There was laughter and of course tears while reading and when I got to the last page I sighed with happiness. The author has the ability to write these amazing stories that you never want to end. A must read for sure that you do not want to miss.

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! From page one, I was instantly drawn in and struggled to put it down. I really enjoyed seeing Cass and Liam's relationship come together. I loved the humour and banter between them and the way they were both scared of their feelings. A really great read and one I will read again and again.

Absolutely loved this book! I couldn't put it down. Why can't all men be like Liam?! My heart felt for Cassidy, with everything she's gone through. She's such a strong female character. All of the friendships throughout the book are great as well. Another fantastic book, Rachael!

The characters are written with a living, breathing existence!

I was envious of the group of friends the Cass and Liam had throughout all of their school years and into college, I sure hope there are people out there that have that connection!
I was invested within the first chapter, I needed to know what the outcome was. I was so invested in the lives of the characters that I struggled knowing it was going to end.

We all have those moments when we have to choose a direction between what seems l

Cassidy is a strong woman, who never stops fighting even when life tries to crush her. Her parents died, and she kept fighting, her long time relationship ended badly, she rose up. And I'm not saying that she didn't feel the pain, because she did, it's just how she continuously moved forward when life's hits tried to take her down. However, it didn't hurt that she's had her best friend, Liam, through all of it. They're super close to the point that significant others/hook ups were jealous from t ...more

What a loving story... I was pleasantly surprised by the whole story, Cassidy a 28 year old schoolteacher was heart broken when her mother and father died in a car accident, and the only way that she survived the lost and hurt was with her best friend Liam Fell. They grew up next door to one another and have been friends since Grade school.
As a matter of fact their parents grew up together also Michael and Betty Fell was Cassidy‘s parents best friends, and they went to college together. So it wa

When Cassidy calls off her wedding she suddenly finds herself needing a new place to live and Liam is quick to suggest they move in together.

“This was my first time reading a book of Rachael and I’m impressed! A best friends-to-lovers story outstanding. Worth the Fight held my attention since the first chapter and I stopped until I reached the end. The storyline was so well developed and written. I really enjoyed the sequence of the story.

Liam and Cassidy’s story wasn’t what I expected but I’m so glad I read it! A rollercoaster of emotions that will keep you trapped. The characters were so realistic and unique. I loved the humorous
