SYNOPSIS

I fell in love once.

It was amazing. She was amazing. Life was amazing.

I lived for each time I could see her, and nothing else mattered, not that our families were enemies, our time together was forbidden, or we had to meet in secret.

Our love could conquer all.

Until it didn’t.

So I was ripped away from the love of my life and shoved into hell, forced to continue without her.

It shattered me, broke the best parts of me, left me permanently damaged.

Or so I thought.

Years later, I swear history’s trying to repeat itself because she’s back in my life, and I’m just as drawn to her as I was before. But I’m older and wiser now, and I know she should stay away from a worthless ex-con like me.

So, I will not let her in. I absolutely refuse to hurt her. I will keep her away.

Then again, sometimes risking your greatest fear to get to a smile makes everything worth it, and besides, I’m not sure I can resist her, anyway.

This is the story of how Felicity Bainbridge changed my life forever, starting one summer day long ago after I was forced to change a dirty diaper…

–Knox Parker

This book was definitely darker than the books in this series. There were some lighthearted moments courtesy of Ten but they were few and far between.

A lot of things I liked…

Knox. His backstory was heartbreaking especially how he grew up, which made what happened to him was even more horrible. This guy just couldn’t catch a break. Sometimes, it felt like too much. He lost so much and as much I was happy he got his HEA, I feel like it wasn’t enough. He deserved so much more than just HEA. Don’t get me wrong, I loved that he finally found happiness with his City but the price he had to pay to get that was too much. It did play very well into the whole “Worth It” theme but I wish he had more! I wanna send him the biggest and squishest hug because he went through so much.

Another one I liked was Pick. He played an instrumental role here and it made me appreciate his character more. Picky Ryan is the kind of dude you’d want on your side. Felicity. I liked her. I didn’t love her like I did Caroline but I felt like she was just perfect for Knox.

I liked that we see how Knox and City met and fell in love. The past and the present flowed nicely and gave readers insight into what actually happened to their relationship and the tragic way it fell apart.

But what was really lacking for me was the lack of meaningful interaction in the present. I wanted a more drawn-out reunion with them. It felt rushed to me. I appreciated the connection Knox has with Eva and Reese but I also felt like it distracted from the Knox-City romantic reunion. Nevertheless, this one was very enjoyable. I loved catching up with the whole gang except you, Noel, you…you ass. Anyway, Worth It is definitely a worthy addition to the Forbidden Men series.
