Publisher's Summary

This fight club has one rule: You might be a veteran....

Loving her is the biggest fight of his life....

Home from the Marines, Noah Cortez has a secret he doesn’t want his oldest friend, Kristina Moore, to know. It kills him to push her away, especially when he’s noticing just how sexy and confident she’s become in his absence. But, angry and full of fight, he’s not the same man anymore either. Which is why Warrior Fight Club sounds so good. 

Kristina loves teaching, but she wants more out of life. She wants Noah - the boy she’s crushed on and waited for. Except Noah is all man now - in ways both oh so good and troubling, too. Still, she wants who he’s become - every war-hardened inch. And when they finally stop fighting their attraction, it’s everything Kristina never dared hope for. 

But Noah is secretly spiraling, and when he lashes out, it threatens what he and Kristina have found. The brotherhood of the fight club helps him confront his demons, but only Noah can convince the woman he loves that he’s finally ready to fight for everything.

Good book!

First of all- Andi Arndt can make any book come to life bcz she’s that AWESOME! Fortunately with this book, she didn’t have to do a ton of work. Fighting For Everything was a sweet book; I would’ve loved it a lot more if I hadn’t listened to and fell in love with Fishers Light first. It has the same PSTD synopsis with hateful words spoken to a lover and a HEA. But the other book had two narrators, was much more believable and was in first person while this is in third.

The writing was good, but I was left wanting more. For example, whatever happened to Ethan? (I think that was his name lol). And I wanted to hear more of Noah's inner monologue. Even though he was hurting, I don't recall him contemplating suicide. It seemed to me like if he wasn't thinking about it already, the other characters put the thought in his head. I get that he had symptoms of depression but I didn't feel the connection that would lead him to make the next step.

Overall, it was a good story but it won’t make you ugly cry but it’s still good just the same.

Worth a credit? Hmm...yeah! ❤️

This is the first book that I’ve listened to of Laura Kaye and I must say that I really enjoyed the storyline and angst of the book. I loved the honesty and relationship between the main characters and their fight to improve themselves. Their mutual respect for each other and sensitivity to one another’s needs was a wonderful dynamic in the book! Loved it!

Big heart for this story

I love listening to Andi Arndt and this is a beautiful story about coming home and not feeling home. This is one of the best portrayals I have read for the coming home injured solider and how he/she deals with their new life.

Very enjoyable friends-to-lovers story

4 stars

This was a very enjoyable story. I liked Kristina and felt for Noah and was happy at how things turned out in the end.

Kristina is a teacher that's just getting off for the summer break. She's nice but isn't a pushover and I liked that. Kristina has been BFFs with Noah since she was 5 but it has always been platonic. She's tried dating but no one has worked out long-term.

Noah was in the military but got injured in an explosion that messed up his hearing in one ear and sight in one eye. That wouldn't be too bad but he also suffers from depression and PTSD and isn't dealing with it well. Noah's issues have had him avoiding his friends since he's been home, even Kristina.

Kristina gets invited to a family BBQ (Noah's family) but with Noah avoiding her, it's the first time they've seen each other since Noah got home. Kristina is happy to see him and hugs Noah and he's bewildered to realize he's turned on by his BFF. The attraction that was never there before hits them both strongly and Noah is worried about ruining their friendship, especially since he doesn't think he's good enough for her now. Kristina is willing to try and does push for it but Noah is the one that backs away....and then gets jealous when someone else asks her out. It's a bit of a back and forth with Noah and be prepared to delve a bit into the mental issues that returning vets deal with but eventually, Noah deals with his issues and is able to make things right for Kristina. In the end, they're happily together and heading towards a HEA.

This was a very enjoyable story. I really liked Kristina. She was nice but wasn't willing to let Noah walk over her feelings. She had to make a hard decision and it's just lucky that Noah came through in the end. Noah's story wasn't an easy one...the PTSD and depression added a bit of darkness to the story but it wasn't too dark and wasn't drawn out so I was ok with it. Overall, this was a very good story with characters I liked and connected with so I would recommend this story. :)

Fighting for everything

Laura Kaye wrote a beautiful story. This tale takes you through the eyes of a soldier and the person loving someone whom has experienced the hell of war. Hot and sweet. Andi Arndt's voice was perfect. She can bring you to tears and a giggle. Can't wait for the next book. Please have Ms. Arndt narrate again!

it starts within yourself

Laura Kaye grabs you by the heart and squeezes with this story of Noah and Kristina. The view she gives of a returned warrior who sustained serious injuries and tries to acclimate to civilian life is eye opening. Andi Arndt was spectacular. The emotion she pours into the story and the characters is spellbinding.

Can a vet w PTSD and TBI find real love

Noah Cortez is lucky to be alive...at least that's what he's been told, but he's finding it hard to believe since he's dealing with TBI and PTSD. He needs to stay away from his bff, Kristina, who is suddenly tempting him to think and do things that 'just friends' should never consider. Kristina is in love with her bff...cliche' but true...now if only she can help him deal with his PTSD then they can have their HEA...right? Unfortunately, Noah thinks that he is too broken for Kristina and keeps pushing her away. Will their friendship survive when Kristina tries to push for more? Will Noah finally seek the help needed to overcome/deal with his injury and disorder? This is a great story that focuses a bit on the aftermath of war injuries. The author did a fantastic job of balancing the hardship involved with these injuries as well as weaving a story of love, acceptance and forgiveness. Totally worth the read/listen.
