Flirty Review: Four Lip Bites!
While there are scenes that are rehashed in a way, the way Davis wrote them made them feel fresh. I didn't understand the internal struggle Luke went through in book one like he does in this book. Or seeing through his eyes the way Emmy made him feel. At times, I was rooting for Luke while others I wanted him to die a fiery death for his thoughts. He wasn't very good to Emmy, but I found that Davis had to show this side of Luke in order for the reader to fully understand the situation Emmy put him in and kept putting him in through the course of the books.
Luke isn't really nice half the book. He's torn, he's bitter, and he's brokenhearted. The only thought in my head was that this book should have been called Diary of a Mad White Dude. Emmy comes back into his life with baby Lucas and everything Luke was trying to push behind him comes back literally in his face. Not only is Emmy back but Luke has to deal with added resentment that Emmy kept his child from him. From book one and book two we know Luke overcomes his struggles, but the process is laid out in Worth The Fight.
Davis again has delivered a very strong character driven book. I applaud her with keeping her characters fresh and revealing added dimensions. I wished that the third book in the series would have been about another couple, I felt I said most of how I felt about the storyline in my review of book one so this review seemed like I would be going over the same thing. That is the only reason I didn't give it a full five lip bit rating. Even though this book was in another point of view, it was still the same story for the most part. If you're not a fan of this, I can see how a reader can be tuned off. But considering I really like Davis' style and her characters, I didn't bother me.
