Fighting for Everything - Laura Kaye
I love this book so much.    Friends to lovers is a story that I find myself drawn to.   Laura Kaye tells the story of Kristina and Noah.   Best friends growing up with an underlying of attraction until they come together after Noah returns from his deployment injured and feeling broken.    The minute Kristina walked into the picnic and sees Noah the sparks flew.     The attraction was there and there could be no doubt that something had changed.    While they jumped right into exploring the attraction there wasn't an insta-relationship.    They fought it, they pushed it away, and they worked hard to figure out how they could come together without losing what was so important to them.   
 
Fighting for Everything is a romance book but it is also the story of a soldier coming home from deployment different from how he left.    It is the story of PTSD and how it affects not only the soldier but those who love him.  It is also a story of people, strangers, coming together and pushing each other to find themselves again.   The story of other retired military who have gone through what Noah is going through and helping others. 
 
This is a heart breaking, heart warming, wonderful, eye-opening story.     I am excited for more from the Warrior Fight Club.

Fighting for Everything is part friends to lovers, part military recovery story! Noah has returned from the Marine Corp a different person-physically and mentally. He has severe physical injuries, extreme PTSD, and on top of that a big case of survivor's guilt. He feels so broken and worthless. Kristina has been his best friend for years, and she is the last person he wants to see him like this. Kristina is a teacher and totally in love with Noah. She is NOT going to let him push her away.

Noah's struggles are the central plot of the story really. His PTSD and injuries are the reason he pushes Kristina away, the reason he is angry, and the reason he feels worthless. While you get a friends to lovers romance, you also get to see a man fight his demons. The veterans fight club he creates is the outlet he needed, but also the outlet other vets needed. It was great to see Noah climb his way out of his depression and carve a new life. Kaye does a beautiful job writing the pain and guilt Noah feels, and also the determination Kristina has to get Noah through this tough time. My biggest struggle was that the story just didn't wow me. I think because I have read so many books it becomes difficult to wow me.

Fighting for Everything sets up the Warrior Fight Club series and I am thrilled to see where Kaye takes it! She writes deep, complex characters with profound emotions.

 
  • POV: dual 1st
  • Tears: no
  • Trope: veteran, friends to lovers
  • Triggers: Noah has PTSD and his flashbacks and struggles are detailed but not overly exploited.
  • Series/Standalone: stand alone
  • Cliffhanger: no
  • HEA: yes




Close Cover by Lexi Blake, Smoke and Mirrors by Julie Rowe, Driving Whiskey Wild...then you will probably like Fight for Everything!

Fighting for Everything
Fighting for Everything - Laura Kaye For a tough guy, it's hard to admit weakness. Noah is a far cry from the young boy who believed there was goodness in the world. Darkness is threatening to swallow him whole and taint anything he touches. Kristina is his only hope, his deepest regret and his greatest weakness. Her giving heart is both an asset and a weakness. It makes her quick to love, but vulnerable to deep hurt. Her heart has and will always belong to one man and she will stop at nothing to help him step back into the light to accept the healing powers of love. Fighting for Everything is a gritty, seductive, uplifting story. Noah and Kristina immerse themselves in some ugly moments and emerge beautifully for it. Kaye is a beast when it comes to stories of courageous survivors and Fighting for Everything empowers it's way right into the heart

Hard to Let Go By Laura Kaye $1.99
Hard as You Can - Laura Kaye

Beckett Murda hates to dwell on the past. But his investigation into the ambush that killed half his Special Forces team and ended his Army career gives him little choice. Just when his team learns how powerful their enemies are, hard-ass Beckett encounters his biggest complication yet--a seductive, feisty Katherine Rixey.

A tough, stubborn prosecutor, Kat visits her brothers' Hard Ink Tattoo shop following a bad break-up--and finds herself staring down the barrel of a stranger's gun. Beckett is hard-bodied and sexy as hell, but he's also the most infuriating man ever. Worse, Kat's brothers are at war with the criminals her office is investigating. When Kat joins the fight, she lands straight in Beckett's sights . . . and in his arms. Not to mention their enemies' crosshairs. 

Now Beckett and Kat must set aside their differences to work together, because the only thing sweeter than justice is finding love and never letting go.

Review Tour - On His Knees

   

Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…

 

Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…

   

 

About ON HIS KNEES (Blasphemy #5):

 

Getting on his knees makes him question everything…and want even more…

 

Another failed relationship has lawyer Jamie Fielding confronting the truth—he’ll never be satisfied with any woman until he admits what he needs…to submit and to be used—hard. When a friend invites him to the exclusive Blasphemy club, Jamie is stunned to find everything he ever wanted—in the fierce, ruthless hands of a man.

 

Psychiatrist Alex McGarry will play with anyone who craves his rough brand of domination, but what he really wants is to settle down. Which makes the submissive male he meets at his club a bad idea—the man might be hot as hell but he’s also new to everything Alex has to offer. Except that doesn’t keep them from coming together again and again, sating every one of their darkest desires.

 

Master Alex sets Jamie’s whole world on fire and makes him question everything—and that’s good. Because Alex won’t tolerate hiding what they have for long and he wants much more than just having Jamie on his knees...

Jamie was done holding back. He was done questioning. He was done feeling like he was on the outside looking in.

 

Now that Master Alex had demonstrated exactly what Jamie required to fully connect with another human being, he needed this to go all the way. More than that, he wanted Alex to be the one to take him there.

 

So he held his breath, held the Dom’s gaze, and held on to the hope that the man would agree.

 

“You want your first time to be non-consensual role-playing,” Master Alex finally said, his voice like it’d been scoured with sandpaper.

 

The tone of it gave Jamie hope. Because he was affected. Jamie wasn’t the only one who needed this, he would’ve put money on it.

 

Nodding, Jamie summoned the courage to say what he wanted, while the Dom was still open to hearing it. Even though, Jesus, the words on the tip of his tongue were seriously twisted. He let them fly anyway. “I want you to force me, use me, hurt me. To show me what it really means to be taken by a…a—”

 

“Say it.”

 

“By a sadist.”

 

Master Alex’s dark eyes flared, and his expression went a little mean. Jamie’s cock hardened, a reaction he couldn’t hide when he knelt there naked. The Dom’s gaze swept downward and settled on his growing erection, and Jamie felt the directness of that perusal as a physical caress.

 

Slowly, Alex rose to his full height, and then his expression went absolutely unforgiving.

 

“Beg.”

 

 

 

 

 

On His Knees (Blasphemy #4)On His Knees by Laura Kaye
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #4, in the Blasphemy series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to fully understand the series, I recommend reading this series in order.

Alex feels like he is letting down those around him. He used to believe he had his life all planned out - and suddenly it feels lost to him somehow. Then he meets someone who needs him and what he can provide.

Jamie has felt like a failure for some time. He never seems to feel right about relationships. He cannot describe what he needs to someone else, so how could he find it?

This was such a great journey. I like how the MC's went after what they wanted and were unapologetic. Their heat was hot. The slow burn felt almost like a live wire, because when it picked up this book was on fire.
