No good deed goes unpunished… And no one knows that better than Tisha Nichols, who, out of the kindness of her heart, agrees to style the hair of her nine-year-old neighbor Cami, so the little girl can look good for picture day. Unfortunately, Cami’s adoptive Uncle is far from grateful. In fact he’s down right livid…and far too attractive for Tisha’s peace of mind.
Love thy neighbor… Is easier said than done, especially when the neighbor in question is a sexy little spitfire who gives even better than she gets. Although Jonah is not the type to say he’s sorry, even he can admit when he’s wrong. But the ongoing fight to win custody of Cami has made him cautious and mistrustful of people, even those as desirable as Tisha.
What starts as a misunderstanding turns out to be one of the best things to ever happen to them. Unfortunately, not everyone is as thrilled, and Jonah and Tisha must decide if their newly formed family is something worth fighting for.
When I begin reading a book, I never know what to expect. I tried to stay neutral until I'd read far enough into a book to come to a decision.
Such is the case with Something Worth Fighting For. It didn't take me very long at all to be blown away. It is written so beautifully and with such emotion. This is one of those stories that will stay with me long after the last word is read.
It is a story about a man who mistrusts most people, especially during a custody battle, and a woman who speaks her mind. The spark and sexual tension between these two stars are immediate.
Now throw in a sweet young girl who brought them together, a woman who will stop at nothing to take the child away from her Uncle and an interracial relationship. Not to mention scorching love scenes that took my breath away.
The author writes this story with such passion. I highly recommend this book, and I will for sure be seeking other titles from Lena Matthews.
