Worth fighting for.
I really liked the premise of this story, and as I enjoyed another one of Andrews stories, I was interested in where here writing would take me next. Riley and Craig. Hmm, it's a story that brings these two together, but something is always in the way. Secrets. Differences. Something that they both agree on. Life in different directions. I like Andrews writing style and how she writes the depth of these characters, making their chemistry undeniable. It's not always easy to feel the chemistry and connection between two characters. Loved it. Loved it. So much had to say it twice.
Riley Anderson is dancing at a private gay night club when he first notices MMA fighter Craig “The Lion” Johnson. These two have a rough start, many rough starts but their chemistry is undeniable. I had a difficult time warming up to the character of Craig due to his attitude and the way that he treated Riley in the start of the book. Riley is such a gentle character so it was hard to see him being treated badly. I did warm up to him by the end, Laura made me feel for him and the struggle he had with his own insecurities. Riley helped Craig be true to himself so I was happy they got their happy ever after.
