When Jessica arrives, however, she’s a trigger for everything he’s trying to forget. She makes him remember who he was before his life went to hell, she makes him want to get himself back. While working through those issues, he and Jessica are racing against an unknown enemy—someone who wants to destroy her reputation and take her sweetheart persona with it.
As they both work to trust each other and figure out just who her enemies are,they learn that love is never easy. They have to decide if the victory is worth the battle.
Layne has seen more than anyone person at his age should have to being a war veteran. Being part of the Heaven Hill MC has given him family and a way to continue the living in life the fast lane . Horrors from his days in the military plague Layne to this day. Sweet, caring, fierce and loyal. Did I mention sexy with great taste in cars. When a special friend from the past asks for Laynes help, he can’t refuse. Layne soon realizes that he may be more of a danger to her, than what she’s running from.
Jessica has been in the spotlight from a young age. As one grows they things they like, need or want in life changes. This statement could not be more true for Jessica. The Hollywood starlet who is a bit spoiled and is in trouble. Jess calls the one person on the earth who will not judge her and will help. Jess, overwhelmed will everything going on, realizes that Layne just maybe in more trouble than herself.
I keep saying this with each book. Ms. Briscoe just gets better with each book of the Heaven Hill MC, Series. Worth the Battle is a little different from the other books of the series. Our hero needs needs the healing more than our lead lady. Ms. Briscoe perfectly unfold the nastiness that lies with in Layne’s head while emotions from one end of the spectrum and back are laid on the table. Through laughter and tears Layne and Jess will make their way into your heart. Ms. Briscoe has a magical way with words. She has continued to pull me in more and more as we learn of this MC family! With each book not only does the story become deeper emotionally, the growth Ms. Briscoe has achieved as a writer can not go unnoticed. She has quickly found a permanent spot on my shelve.
I was given an ecopy of this book from the author/publisher for an honest review.
