My whole life as I knew it changed when I was just seventeen years old.
The night that I caught him killing a person and showing no sign of remorse.
He promised me that he would never turn into this person, he would help me get out, then we would move far away to start over. He promised me that he would never hurt me, but he did.
My world shattered. I was plunged into the dark pits of hell with no end in sight. I just had to keep going on, living in the motions.
Until four years later when we are forced to be in each other’s lives again. Can we move forward from our past and leave behind the fact that he deceived me, or will it all be too hard to forgive and forget, especially when secrets are revealed that could threaten to ruin everything.
All I know is that I always have, and always will be in love with Phoenix James
Worth the Fight by Beth Maria Review
Ever since they were little, Phoenix and Emilia have been best friends. As they grew older, they knew that they had feelings that went deeper than friendship, but at the request, no, demand, of Emilia’s father, they stay away from each other. And it really helps that Emilia walked in on Phoenix betraying her in the worst imaginable way…
Going through the next four years ignoring Phoenix, Emilia is finally forced to interact with him as her father has put the two of them in charge of a new night club. This closeness has put their feelings for each other back in front of them, and neither of them are sure how to proceed.
They give in to their feelings, but of course it doesn’t last. Emilia ends up running away from Phoenix and her father, living on her own. She’s tired of getting hurt and living under her father’s thumb.
Will these two be able to find each other again?
I really enjoyed this book, but I didn’t love it. While the story line is fun and full of action, that’s just not my kind of book. I don’t even watch action movies; they’re just not my thing. But I think that Beth Maria did a wonderful job of writing this novel, and I could tell she really loves the characters.
The only think that bothered me, stylistically, is how she would repeat a noun in a sentence. I do that too, when I write, so I know it’s a hard habit to break.
I give this book three and a half stars. I am looking forward to reading more from Beth Maria.
