Sometimes in life you have to walk away . . .

Leaving Jamie Cole was the hardest thing Ellie Pearce ever had to do. Somehow, she moved on. She made a new life in a new city with a new man. So when a family tragedy calls Ellie back home, she believes all her old feelings for Jamie—the hunger, the heat, the heartbreak-are safely behind her. But the second she lays eyes on him, the intensity of their connection is as strong as ever.

Sometimes you stay and fight . . .

Jamie knows pain. He's felt it fighting in the streets, and he felt it fighting to survive in prison. Yet nothing he's experienced has been as painful as the day Ellie left—until the moment she came back. This time Jamie is determined to hold on to Ellie forever. But as much as she still loves him, she can't ignore the dark world he's now a part of. Jamie has enemies. Dangerous ones. And after seeing Jamie with Ellie, they know exactly how to take him out . . .

“’Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” Alfred, Lord Tennyson, said that in some poem in the 1800s. In my opinion, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, was full of shit.
Maybe Lord Tennyson had never truly loved someone; maybe he’d never cared for someone else more than he cared for himself, because if he had, if he’d loved someone so deeply he’d been willing to die for them, how could he have written such a horseshit line? I’m merely speculating, of course. I’m no academic, so I know nothing about the guy other than that one quote. So how then, you may ask, does my opinion so vehemently disagree with his?
Because I was in love once.
Only once.
And I lost her.
And I would give any fucking thing in the world to have never loved her at all. No, it most definitely is not better to have loved and lost..
Fuck love. And fuck Lord Tennyson.

I was dying for this book after the ending of, Fighting To Be Free, left me with my mouth hanging open! Worth Fighting For picks up a few years later and Jamie and Ellie have completely separate lives now. Jamie is still hanging around town and is back into the same corrupt game as the past, and Ellie is living and working abroad! Ellie has to abruptly make her way back home to see her family and it's inevitable that she runs into Jamie.

Jamie and Ellie were so perfect together until they are torn apart in Fighting To Be Free, so it's not a big surprise that I wanted them together again! Jamie had always been so amazingly sweet with her, and when I saw how he was still pining for her after all this time I was rooting for him big time! I just hoped he got his act together in time to be with her because she was not having a criminal boyfriend, and of that I'm glad!

 Ellie has so much going on with her family in this book that I just felt horrible for her. After years of running away, she finally realizes that it's time to come home and be the rock that her family needs.  She's trying to mend things with her little sister, and be there for her mom. On top of that, now that she is home she has to figure out what do to about her love life! 

Worth Fighting For is a great ending to Jamie and Elli's story! I feel like everything I wanted to happen did. A very quick and satisfying read.
