Synopsis from Goodreads
Getting in deep has never felt this good…
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.
Worth Fighting For is not only a story of two people utterly perfect for each other but also looking at facing your fears whatever they may be and overcoming them to lead the best possible life for you.
Jesse and Tara have so much in common, they click instantly when they meet at a bat late at night, bonding over a plate of nachos. Leading to one of the best nights they have ever spent, prior to starting a new season with a commercial diving team. Their chemistry and shared life experiences highlight the missing parts of their lives, one they are hoping to fill.
However, nothing is ever that simple with fate stepping in to continually throw Jesse and Tara together but in a complicated fashion rather than the plain sailing they could really do with.
Ultimately, Jesse and Tara have to re-evaluate their priorities while re-adjusting to civilian life at their time in the military. Laura inserts the terrible reality of mental health issues and suicide rates of veterans within the narrative of Worth Fighting For – because not only is romance worth the fight but EVERY life is worth fighting for
