Honestly, I loved 98% of this book. The end killed my 100% devotion to this book. It was very much rushed. Although, truthfully, I also loved Knox so much I wanted more thab 500ish more pages with him. I loved Linda Kage and she hit out of the park with this one. Definitely redeemed herself after Ten's story. It's deep, emotional, and broken up with enough sweet that the heartbreak isn't overwhelming. Fair warning, the end wasn't great though.

Sadly, this one was my least favorite of the series. Still a good read, but not nearly up to par with the others.

I sometimes wonder if Linda is out to make me cry... her books have touched my heart more than anything. This book was no exception. I loved Knox and Felicity so hard. Their past was so forbidden and their future was a uphill battle, but Felicity never gave up. One of the many things I loved about her. Knox *sigh* he was so damaged and torn that you couldn't help but love him. I was happy to get all the laughs and interaction from the characters in the previous books in this series. I could go on and on about how amazing and wonderful this story was but I will let the book speak for itself... just make sure you have plenty of tissues. Linda you knocked another one out of the park! This Shanks for you, love! Dibs on Knox (winks)! ~ Lydia, 5 Stars

What to say about ‘Worth It’? I laughed, cried, cheered, raged, smiled and wept. ‘Worth It’ is a beautifully written rollercoaster of emotions, and I loved every second of it. There are two time-zones in this story and for the first half of the novel we switch from the present day to the summer years before that changed everything for Felicity and Knox. At first I was a little worried about how well this would work, but Linda Kage pulled it off flawlessly. Each change in time was timed perfectly, and I loved the feeling of being in limbo as we were gradually given more and more details about the past, alongside seeing how their lives are evolving in the present time. Felicity is a heroine that you will root for from the beginning. A little nerdy, good hearted, a good natured normal girl in the midst of an extraordinary one, she behaves with a sensitivity and respect that she definitely didn’t learn from her family. I loved how much her life contrasted with Knox’s, who came from a poor family, who worked hard for everything they got, and who more often than not came out on the wrong side of luck. This story is a beautiful one. We see the consequences of one summer ricochet through the years until the day that Knox can put it behind him, but with Felicity’s desperation to bring him back to her, his chance at a whole new life is more difficult than he imagined. This is the fifth book in the ‘Forbidden Men’ series, but can be read as a standalone. I hadn’t read any of the other books in the series, but after finishing this one, I immediately downloaded the first five, to witness first hand the stories of the great secondary characters that helped Knox and Felicity get their happy ending. 5 Stars! *Review copy was kindly provided through Xpresso Book Tours Review Opportunities in exchange for an honest review*

Linda Kage's Forbidden Men series has had mr head over heels since the beginning, but this story may just be my favorite! Knox and Felcity are my favs.

I love the Forbidden Men series! The series continues to get better and better. The way the author tied in these new characters with the characters I already love was simply flawless. There were quite a few shocking moments that left me with my mouth hanging open. It can be read as a standalone but highly recommend reading it in order to really appreciate the story. My favorite part of the series is the characters, they are well written and have such powerful stories that makes you feel you really know and love them. I loved the secret that was discovered in the end. I can't wait for the next one, it can't come soon enough. It is a must read, it was definitely worth it for me!! Also as an Arrow fan, I appreciated all the subtleties the author made that made me realize she is a fan too!

“No matter what happens today, don’t ever change. You are fun and sweet and amazing just the way you are. You make the world a better place because you always find the bright side. You ARE the bright side. And if I’m ever going to make it through this, i need to know you’re out there, still growing and making the world bright.” Worth It follows the story of Knox and Felicity. Knox and Felicity were not supposed to be friends. Their families had been enemies for as long as anyone can remember. The last thing they ever expected was for a Parker to fall for a Bainbridge. Knox and Felicity fell into an easy friendship that quickly developed into something more. The love they felt and shared was real and pure. But, in the end, love turned out to not be enough. Knox and Felicity are ripped apart from one another, when Knox goes to jail for a crime that he didn’t commit. The separation shattered the both of them. Now, years later, Knox returns home to a life he doesn’t even recognize. So much has changed and none of it for the good. The last thing he expected after all that time, was for Felicity to walk back into his life. Knox tries to stay away, but finds himself more drawn to Felicity than ever. Knox doesn’t want to hurt Felicity but the struggle is real. He still loves Felicity, but wants to protect her. Will Knox take a chance and let Felicity in? Will Felicity prove that the love that they once shared, still exists and is worth fighting for? Worth It was a quick and easy read for me. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been in the world of Forbidden Men that Linda Kage has created and now after reading this one, I am dying to go back to the other stories. Worth It pulls you in from the first page. Knox and Felicity’s relationship has a Romeo and Juliet quality to it. It was so easy to get lost in their story and fall in love with them along the way. The road to HEA for Knox and Felicity is not an easy one. Both of them have demons that haunt them. There is so much hurt and pain that they have to get passed. My heart ached for Knox, not only because he went to prison for a crime he didn’t commit, but also because of the things that he endured while being locked up. He had so many things haunting him and so much anger. And Felicity, her life probably changed the most. Loosing Knox really put things into perspective for her and made her make some really big, really tough decisions. Seeing Knox again, while it made her happy and her heart soar; she had a lot of hurt to deal with. But seeing the two of them together, the chemistry they shared, the way that they could calm one another by just being there; made the journey all worth it. Worth It can be read as a stand-alone, so if you’re like me and have a tendency to read books out of order, you will be ok. Just be aware that there will be spoilers to the previous stories. Worth It is well written and captivating. It had the perfect balance of angst, drama and romance. Worth It is definitively worth checking out. I for one can not wait for the next installment of the Forbidden Men series. *I was provided an ARC copy of this book via the author, in exchange for an honest review.* My review can also be seen at: http://onceuponabookblog.com/2015/08/
