Review: Worth Fighting For by Zena Wynn

Reviewed by Shelly

DISCLAIMER: Somewhere along the line, I’m guessing that the author gained rights back to these stories and decided to rebrand, rename (Worth Fighting For) and republish. According to Goodreads, the story that I read is called Love’s Challenges and was published back in 2010 by Red Rose Publishing. The story that I have on my kindle is called Worth Fighting For.

Picking up direct after The Apology, the second book in Wynn’s ‘Nina Chronicles’ continues with the lives of Nina and Roberto. In this installment there’s more of Roberto – where he’s from and even quite a bit more on his previous marriage and his children. Nina and Roberto are now in a relationship. Everything is moving along nicely but Nina doesn’t get too complacent because she’s been down this road before and caution is a must.

As with the first installment, the Christian theme is prolific. Nina and Roberto are doing things together that they both enjoy. There’s family time and there’s a change in the wind specifically leadership in the home. The twins are starting to pick sides and making decisions about which parent they’d like to live with. We even find out more about Roberto’s kids through their interaction with Nina.

There’s a lot more ‘couple’ interaction than was present in book 1 and that’s a good thing. As the story progresses, Nina and Roberto start planning a life together and with that comes the ups and downs of life. On the surface, there seems to be more downs. Roberto looses his job and that causes a great deal of conflict with this couple. On both sides, the feelings of inadequacy and rage come to a head and relationships; even those that are not Nina and Roberto are tested.

To me, this is a much better book than the first; the emotional investment is so much more. One of the best non-physical fights I’ve ever read happens in this book. The anger was palpable. Have you ever seen someone lose the color in their face because of devastation? There’s a moment when I can picture this in Nina. So good.

There’s a lot to be said about writing an engaging story that doesn’t rely on action scenes, sex scenes or views of opposing sides and Wynn did a solid writing job in this one. And yep, there’s a sex scene and the couple is not married.

There’s some editing issues but nothing distracting.

Happy reading folks!
