Book Review: Fighting For What's His By Laura Kaye

Fighting For What's His
(Warrior Fight Club #2)
By Laura Kaye

Resisting her only makes him want her more...

Private investigator Billy Parrish is good at three things—fighting, investigating, and sex. MMA training with the other vets in the Warrior Fight Club keeps his war-borne demons at bay—mostly, and one night stands ensure no one gets too close. But then his best friend from the Army Rangers calls in a favor.

Shayna Curtis is new to town and full of hope for the future. With a new job starting, she's grateful when her brother arranges a place for her to stay while she apartment hunts. But she never expected her roommate to be so brooding. Or so sexy.

Billy can't wait for Shay to leave—because the longer she's there, the more he wants her in his bed. To stay. He can't have her—that much he knows. But when fight club stops taking off the edge, Billy lets down his guard…and starts fighting for what's his.

My Review:

This book was better than the first book, but still not as action-packed and as well paced as I'd like. The characters were, overall, much more likable and did a lot for keeping me interested in the story.

Shayna was a fun and sassy person. Her impulsive decisions made for a predictable but rather realistic story. The almost ending caught me by surprise and I loved seeing her "in her element" and how respectful and understanding Billy was about it.

Billy was an overall great guy (still) dealing with issues (both mental and physical) from his time in the military. He was sweet, caring and most importantly emotionally present (which is rare in the alpha character trope). I liked how observant he was of the smallest details and how he appreciated when Shayna put effort into doing things his way so he wouldn't have to re-do them later. Billy and Shayna had amazing banter and chemistry. I wish that he'd told her how he felt earlier in the novel so the conclusion didn't feel so rushed.

The ending was no surprise, but it felt rushed when compared to the overall pace of the story. The world the author continued to develop in this series felt a little bigger this time around. The standout character for me in this novel was Mo and I'd love to read his story in a future book in this series.

My Favorite Quotes:

"There was absolutely no way to experience crisis, trauma, and violence - or even the threat of it - without it changing the way you viewed the world."

"It took losing the choice about whether to turn right or left to highlight which path you'd really wanted to go down all along."

My Rating:

  1. I do expect certain things in my romance book endings, so I have not problem with predictability, but I am not a fan of the author rushing the ending. Glad you found some things to enjoy, and I hope you get Mo's book.

    1. Predictability isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I like it when authors throw in a twist here and there to, at the very least, keep me guessing. With the way the story progressed the ending felt very rushed. I've read the synopsis's for the next few books in this series and none of them are Mo's book. Here's to hoping I didn't just invest my emotions in a character that will gradually disappear from the story completely in the next few books :)
