No good deed goes unpunished . . . And no one knows that better than Tisha Nichols, who, out of the kindness of her heart, agrees to style the hair of her nine-year-old neighbor Cami, so the little girl can look good for picture day.

Overview

No good deed goes unpunished . . . And no one knows that better than Tisha Nichols, who, out of the kindness of her heart, agrees to style the hair of her nine-year-old neighbor Cami, so the little girl can look good for picture day. Unfortunately, Cami's adoptive Uncle is far from grateful. In fact he's down right livid . . . and far too attractive for Tisha's peace of mind.

Love thy neighbor . . . Is easier said than done, especially when the neighbor in question is a sexy little spitfire who gives even better than she gets. Although Jonah is not the type to say he's sorry, even he can admit when he's wrong. But the ongoing fight to win custody of Cami has made him cautious and mistrustful of people, even those as desirable as Tisha.

What starts as a misunderstanding turns out to be one of the best things to ever happen to them. Unfortunately, not everyone is as thrilled, and Jonah and Tisha must decide if their newly formed family is something worth fighting for.

Originally posted at: www.whippedcream2.blogspot.com ***** When a young girl wants her hair done properly for her school picture, an innocent knock on her neighbor's door becomes so much more. Something Worth Fighting For combines romance, humor, memorable characters, and steamy sexual tension. Lena Matthews has created a story in which strangers who seemed destined to hate each other learn there is as much passion as there is animosity between them. The result is something that will make you laugh, squirm and, at times, writhe in your seat. Tisha and Jonah have the love/hate kind of relationship that, at times, drove me insane. A few of the arguments, which led to their blow outs in which they didn't speak for days, were somewhat difficult to believe. Fortunately, their chemistry always managed to return the focus to their relationship, Jonah's daughter, and the struggles the three face to be together, which is truly the heart of the work. Of the three characters, the saucy young Cami (Jonah's goddaughter turned daughter following the death of her parents) was perhaps the most delightful. Her dialogue is quick and witty, and the scenes in which she's front and center were some of my favorites. I was also impressed with Ms. Matthews's ability to address the issue of life in a multicultural household, as well as the way in which she kept her attention solely on the characters and their interactions versus their ethnicity. Certainly, there are scenes in which race is an issue, but it's from outside forces versus from the characters themselves. Those who enjoy a solid (and scorching hot) contemporary romance with a few twists and turns along the way will definitely enjoy Something Worth Fighting For. Be sure to pencil this title onto your TBR list.

Was it just me who struggled to get through this book? The book seemed to lose its focus once the paternal aunt was brought into the picture. Yes she provided the drama but it also drew the two main leads apart as well. When I got to the middle of this book I no longer cared about what happened next. The story dragged and lost focus to me. I was very tempted to skip to the end, and the ending was a HUGE disappintment as well! This book had a lot of potential and to me it fell very shot and flat.

Not sure where to start. The book is great theres no ands if or buts about it. Theres no slow starts. It begins with action and ends with action. I also like it because it shows that no relationship is perfect be it fact or fiction

Good read, I thought it was good to have a man with the responsibility of raising a child especially since she was a black little girls that really made me laugh. It worked out and they made a good family unit..
