Worth It (Linda Kage)

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

Worth It is the 6th book of the Forbidden Men series, and the 7th book that I’ve read, and another one I loved. Again, I loved the writing, and once again, this book is told in dual POV and through different time periods. We learn how they met and their relationship developed, while they were teens, and then we see the now.

I really liked the characters, Felicity had such a great light and I loved both her POVs. I loved how much more confident she was and how much she grew. But Knox was such a different person… He was considerate and amazing when he was 18, but after everything that happened, he’s a much more subdued person, and it’s justified, but it broke my heart. While Felicity has an amazing character development in the past, Knox’s character development happens in the now. Knox went through hell… it still breaks my heart.

This is a story of first love and second chances. I loved their connection, and all their experiences together.

Another great romance on this series, and these 2 are a great addition to the group.
