5 out of 5 stars
I really don’t know what to say right now. I mean, Laura has left me in a book hangover of epic proportions. Every emotion is felt in this book from happy to heartbreaking to complete bliss!
One of my favorite things about Laura’s writing is that she truly brings light to what veterans go through when they adjust back to the civilian world. It’s not as easy as people think. You can tell that Laura does her research and delivers one absolutely perfect book after another.
You will love the dynamics between these two. They don’t have it easy, by any means but they find a way to come out with the best ending. Twists, turns, emotional roller coaster rides- we get them all. In short, this was another absolutely perfect book by Laura Kaye. One perfect book after another. Can’t wait for what’s next!

A feisty and independent heroine who won’t hesitate to stand up for herself…

About FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS (Warrior Fight Club #2, 9/7/18):
This fight club has one rule: you must be a veteran…
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, fresh out of grad school, and full of hope for the future. With a new job starting in a month, 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.

Shayna saw Billy through the windows to the gym with the fighting rings where his club met. He was on his knees facing another fighter—a woman with a long black braid—while a bigger group knelt around the two of them. Shay had just enough time to appreciate that the club included women veterans before the woman attacked him.
For a long moment, they grappled with each other until Billy managed to flip the woman and pin her to the ground.
Three visceral reactions rocked through Shayna.
An almost animalistic appreciation of Billy’s brute strength.
Arousal at the memory of Billy pinning her against the wall.
And jealousy that another woman was experiencing the feeling of the weight of his body instead of her.
Shayna’s heart tripped into a sprint as she stood there, slack-jawed and wanting…
Suddenly, Billy sprang into a kneeling position again as the woman got up and moved to the outer ring of people, and it was clear that some sort of trash-talk being thrown between them from the looks on their faces and the way the others were laughing and clapping.
And then Mo moved into the center with Billy. As big as Billy was, Mo…Mo was like a mountain. His ready smile and deep laugh had earlier put Shayna at ease and allayed any concerns she’d had that she might be invading a space where she wasn’t wanted. But now Mo looked nothing short of intimidating as he stared Billy down.
The men seemed to lunge at the same time. They slammed into each other and worked to pull each other flat to the ground, and then finally they both went down. Shayna couldn’t see who had the advantage around those cheering the two men on, and she realized that she was straining and moving to the side to get a better view.
Whatever was going on, it was much longer before the fighters traded out, and this time it was Billy coming out of the center to join those on the side. A few of his teammates shook his hand before he moved outside of the group to grab his water bottle. And then he tilted his head way back to take a long drink.
And, holy mother of sweaty hot men, Billy Parrish was freaking gorgeous.
Muscles glistening. Shorts hanging dangerously low on his lean hips. Dark blond hair made even darker from sweat. Even the fingerless black gloves he wore were sexy as fuck. His Adam’s apple bobbed as he drank.
Shayna swallowed hard herself.
He wiped his mouth on the back of his glove and capped the bottle again, and then he did a double take as he noticed her standing in the window.
Heat absolutely roared over Shayna at having been caught so blatantly ogling him. And there was a smugness to the almost-smile he wore. But he gave her a little wave and nodded his head as if to invite her inside.
The gesture should not have made any part of her feel gooey, but it seemed her crush on her brother’s best friend had resurrected enough to indeed cause gooeyness. Whether she wanted that to happen or not.
