Book Blurb:
All's fair in love and war. 

As leader of a fox skulk, Cody is used to feeling protective. But when his best friend, Misty, gets attacked, his panic has nothing to do with duty. Suddenly, he's noticing Misty as a woman instead of the girl he grew up with. But pursuing those feelings would risk their friendship, something he's unwilling to do. 

Misty's tried everything, without success, to convince Cody she's not "one of the guys". Yet now that he's looking at her like she always dreamed, he pulls away every time she gets close. 

Danger lurks in the background, waiting to pounce. Someone plots against the foxes, leaving them all in jeopardy…especially Misty. Will Cody overcome his fears in time to save the woman he loves?

My Thoughts:

WORTH FIGHTING FOR is a thrilling story of a love that waits, perseveres and prevails.

Misty has always been close to Cody, the leader of the Fox skulk she belongs to. She's always been in love with him and she tried everything to make him notice her, she even tried to make him drunk one night, and they shared a very passionate kiss but to her dismay, Cody didn't even remember it happening. And then something happened! She was attacked and suddenly Cody looks at her as if he wants her and not just as the best friend, but she could see that he's fighting the attraction so hard to the point of pushing her away. So, what's girl in love to do? Will she fight for a man who's not fighting for her?

I really liked this book. It was a really fun read. The pacing of the story is quite ok. This is the fourth book of the Alpine Woods Shifter Series and although I haven't read the first three books of the series, I still understood most of it because the author made it easier to read. There is enough back story to make it understandable, though it would've been better to read the first three books to have better understanding of the other characters who are also in this book. 

I loved the characters! Misty is a fine woman who loves dearly. She fights for her man even though she's hurting because her love was not given back. And Cody is one interesting hero. He's extremely protective of Misty and he knows he feels something for her, but he's scared to make changes that have the possibility to ruin his friendship with Misty.

I loved how the author wrote about the turmoil of emotions that the main two characters goes through. Sondrae Bennett wrote the different feelings perfectly. Cody's fear, confusion, love and Misty's hurt, exhaustion, elation and love...all of these feelings are written well and it was really fascinating. The only thing that I think was slightly lacking in this book is in the paranormal issues. I think it could have been more exciting and more fun if the author added more about the paranormal stuff.

Overall, I think that WORTH FIGHTING FOR is a great read. If you want to read a book that can touch your heart and make you giddy then, this book is definitely for you.

  About the Author:

Sondrae has been an avid reader of romance books since the tender age of twelve when her mother gave her one while she recovered from her wisdom teeth removal. Ever since then, she's been hooked. Her tastes in genres have expanded over the years, from the sweet contemporaries to the darker paranormal and even the steamy erotica, she loves them all. It wasn't until she started envisioning multiple endings for books she was reading that she decided to try her hand at writing one. She believes the best characters are those deeply and truthfully inv ested in situations they find themselves in. Sondrae usually lets her characters speak for themselves, and considers herself merely the vessel through which her hero's and heroine's interact. Above all, she loves giving her characters the happily ever afters they deserve, after a little necessary drama first. 

When suffering from writers block, Sondrae spends her time reading, going to plays, watching movies, and of course spending time with her family and her two dogs. She loves to hear from her readers at or visit the contact me page on her website
