Worth Fighting For
Fighting To Be Free – Book 2
By Kirsty Moseley
Kirsty Moseley brings us the sequel to Fighting to be Free.
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.
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.
After the highly emotional cliffhanger in Fighting To Be Free by Kirsty Moseley, I have been sitting on pins and needles for this book to release. I was dying for the conclusion to Jamie and Ellie’s story. Worth Fighting For was well worth the wait. It went beyond my expectations and delivered a very emotional and realistic conclusion. Kirsty Moseley took great care with delivering this story. She paid attention to details, allowed the characters to realistically mature, she allowed them to develop as individuals with embracing both the good and the bad, and she gave them new emotional hurdles to jump. I was glued to the pages as the rest of their story began to unfold.
Worth The Fight is not a stand alone novel. It is the sequel to Fighting To Be Free.
I wasn’t prepared for the sequel to be as heartbreaking as the first book. The first chapter delivers a devastating tragedy that sets the course for the rest of this book. At the end of the first book Jamie was serving time in prison. He set Ellie free to pursue her dreams of traveling Europe. Three years later Jamie is out of prison and now a crime boss. He embraced the life he desperately tried to be free of. His life is emotionless until Ellie returns home. He has to face the heartbreak and his past mistakes. He has to make choices that could affect Ellie’s life as well. He also wants to win her love but knows it’s impossible.
Ellie spent a year traveling through Europe trying to heal from the devastating heartbreak of losing Jamie. After the year was up she chose to stay in London. She has finally moved on in life. She is engaged and happy in London. Or so she thought until tragedy struck and she was forced to return home. Upon returning home she realizes that she has been running and avoiding her emotions.
I won’t say much more because this is a story the reader needs to experience for themselves. The one thing that stayed true was the matters of the heart. Jamie and Ellie had a deep abiding love for one another. They truly needed the time apart to learn what matters most in life. They both needed to grow up. Ellie needed a doses of reality because she had viewed the world through rose colored glasses. Jamie needed to become a independent man and make his own choices. He needed to find his own footing whether it was good or bad. The people of his past no longer controlled his life or future, only he had that power now.
The one thing that was evidently clear was they were both Fighting To Be Free. They had to learn that love is Worth Fighting For.
Kirsty Moseley’s writing was flawless. She delivered perfection in this powerful conclusion to the Fighting To Be Free story.
