Product Description

Bruises fade.
A cut can be bandaged,
A broken bone healed.
But can a wounded heart mend?

Deeply damaged by her father’s abandonment when she was fourteen years old, Rainey Miller has let the fear of getting hurt shape and trap her to the point she refuses to connect with people on a deeper level. She is popular and has friends, but her strict dating rules prevent anyone from the chance to touch her heart.

Up and coming boxer, Logan Danvers, has his eyes set on the raven-haired beauty with the cerulean eyes. No matter how hard she tries to push him away, he will push back even harder.
Until she gives in.
Until she is his.
Because once he sets his eyes on what he wants, he doesn’t give up.
It’s who he is.

But what will he do when he realizes it’s not who he is but what he is that could cost him his chance with Rainey? Will he give up or will he find a way to make her realize she is The Girl Worth Fighting For?

Riley spent her life idolising one man. The one man in the world who she thought would never let her down. But on that one fateful night her world,
as she knew it, no longer existed. The one thing she loved most in the world was taken from her.

Ten years later she has built a life for herself, but only with walls in place to keep her heart safe. Her rules would keep her safe from having to feel
again. Wouldn’t they?

Working as a Social Worker with troubled teens is her passion. She shares a piece of herself with them. Never letting anyone get close except the two friends she has let in. But one man, Logan, is determined to break down those walls and make her his. He knows he has his work cut out for him. He wants to know who and what has caused her
heartache and make it right.

Finding out her mother is sick again is a shock but finding the man she is coming to love, with the man her turned her life upside down 10 years ago, is an even bigger shock. Can she ever trust either of them again or will she let her past haunt her too much to ruin what she has now.

This is a great story with so many ups and downs. You really feel for the characters. Sometimes getting a little misty eyed. I recommend this book
to anyone.

The Girl worth Fighting For is the second book in The Girl Series by Julia Goda. It is a contemporary/sports romance.
Rainey Miller is employed as a social worker at a shelter, where she works with children. She loves her job and is passionate about what she does. She is likeable and quite popular; her friends are like family to her. So on the surface everything looks fine. But in reality Rainey lives a very structured life with several self-imposed rules that she hopes will prevent her from getting her heart broken ever again. Rainey had quite a wonderful childhood and idolised her father. But there was a very traumatic experience for the then thirteen year old, that has scarred and haunted her ever since- and is the reason she is so guarded, never opening her heart fully, to anyone.
Logan Danvers is a skilled boxer, with many years’ experience under his belt. He loves to pass on his knowledge and skills to the younger generation, helping them develop skills in the art of boxing. He volunteers at the shelter where Rainey works. He has wanted Rainey from the moment he laid eyes on her. He will do whatever it takes to be with her. He is sure that she is his ‘one’. Rainey is attracted to him but he goes against all of her rules. And she won’t break her rules, for anyone.
Logan is very persistent and slowly begins to break down Rainey’s walls. He is determined to show her that she can trust him and he won’t let her down. Ever. Rainey puts up a good fight, she tries avoiding him and pushing him away. But he’ll keep coming back until she gives in. He’s not one to give up a fight or throw in the towel.
Will Rainey finally realise what Logan is offering her is everything she needs? Will Logan be able to break down her walls?

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a Story Worth Reading! 30 January 2017
By Allison Michaels - Published on Amazon.com

Still stinging from the heartache inflicted years ago by her father’s rejection of her and her mother after he couldn’t cope with losing an important boxing match, Rainey shuns the notion of romantic love and focuses her attention on her job as a social worker at a local shelter for runaway teenagers. She tries her best to ignore Logan, a regular volunteer whose sights have been set on her for the past month. She wants nothing to do with the young boxer, but Logan’s persistence and generosity with the kids eventually chisels a crack in the wall Rainey has built around her heart.

Logan wants forever with Rainey and has no problem whatsoever in stating his intentions despite Rainey’s skepticism and reservations. With unwavering determination, he proceeds to slowly chip away at her defenses through both actions and words, demonstrating how his loyalty and affection for Rainey aren’t just an act to get her in his bed for a steamy fling. In the days that follow, Logan repeatedly proves himself to be the strong, reliable shoulder Rainey can cry and rely on when the past comes back to haunt her on two separate occasions. But does she trust him enough to not make the same mistake that broke her heart and left her in shambles in the first place? It’s up to her to decide if the risk is worth the reward when a fight with the potential to boost his boxing career to the bigtime looms on the horizon.

This is the first book I’ve read by Julia Goda, and I’m happy to say it will NOT be the last. Ms. Goda is a talented author who clearly chooses her words carefully. Her writing is clean and concise without being stiff or impersonal. The unique way she alternated POV between Logan and Rainey is innovative and refreshing. I found myself quickly sucked into this story and turned pages quickly as it progressed to see what would happen next. I also found Logan’s hybrid brand of alpha-male behavior endearing. He wasn’t a stereotypical beat-his-chest-and-grunt caveman who dragged his woman around by the hair or an ankle. He definitely staked his claim, but did so with a pleasant and tactful confidence that wasn’t at all off-putting. Ms. Goda also deserves praise for creating a strong heroine with realistic flaws and vulnerabilities. I think many readers can relate to the kind of mental damage rejection from a loved one can inflict on a person.

I *highly* recommend this book. I fully intend to go back and read the first installment in this series and eagerly await the next one.

Julia's writing always draws me into her stories and keeps me there, eagerly turning pages. Logan and Rainey's story is no different. I loved how fiercely Logan fought to break down her fears and how staunchly he stood by her. Such a sweet story! 💕

I loved Logan and Rainey. This is a really great book. The 4 stars are because I felt she didn't follow up with some of the characters.

“He and I could never happen. I had a rule I lived by, a rule I wouldn’t break for anyone. I knew men like him, arrogant and self-righteous men who f***ed everything up if things didn’t go their way—or even when they did. The risk was just too high.”

Rainey had the perfect childhood with a loving mother and father. Until it wasn’t perfect anymore; her dad lost himself to anger and alcohol, not being able to handle his defeat in the boxing ring. This has left Rainey emotional scarred, unable to truly connect with other people on an intimate level. Nowadays she works at a shelter, to make a difference in the lives of children, to make sure they have a chance at a better future. Rainey loves her job, and enjoys working with her co-workers and the children they look after. But lately Rainey is very distracted by a man, an annoying always present man she’s not allowed to like (per her own rules). But ignoring Logan isn’t an option.

“No, that’s not what I meant. I meant, why do you want to kiss me? I told you—” “And I told you I wasn’t going to give up. I never lie and I always stand by my word.” “Do you now?” “Yes. I do.” “Well, so do I.”

Logan is a boxer, and a very good one. He has been doing it for a long time, and he loves to train other young kids in the art of boxing. Because Logan’s parents had a rocky marriage – his father was a cheater – his mother has taught him to respect women, and that’s what he does. He doesn’t play the field, and never dates multiple women at once. Logan also volunteers at a local shelter, helping with the youngsters who are facing rough times. And here he meets a woman he instantly falls for, Rainey. Too bad she doesn’t date boxers..

“He wanted her. And as he was standing across the room from her, unable to move his eyes away, frozen in time, he realized he was already in so much deeper than he had thought. For him, there was no turning back.”

The moment Logan lays his eyes on Rainey, he instinctively knows she’s the woman for him. Rainey is a different story. Yes, she’s attracted to the man, but the sport he practices is something she despises. Her dad’s betrayal still cuts deep, and she doesn’t want to get involved with a man who boxes, just like her father did. But Logan knows what he wants, and that is Rainey. Slowly he finds a way into her life and heart, Logan doesn’t give up and shows Rainey he’s nothing like her father. Rainey tries to fight Logan and the feelings she starts to develop for him, until she sees what’s in front of her. Together Rainey and Logan are a sweet couple with lots of chemistry and funny banter.

Like other books by Julia Goda, The Girl Worth Fighting For is written in an easy, clean style. No flowery phrases and overly deep inner thoughts, just the words and thoughts of normal, realistic people. Like other heroes by this author, Logan is an Alpha man, but he doesn’t take it too far. Yes, he pushes Rainey a bit, but he lets her make her own decisions, lets her come to her own conclusions. Rainey is a feisty, sweet woman who’s been through hell with her father, and still is dealing with the aftermath of his betrayal. I love to see Cole and Lizzy again (from the previous book in the series), to see their relationship is still going strong, and that Cole is still as over-the-top as ever.

“Mine to cherish, mine to worship, mine to protect. I decided I was going to be your waterfall, the one place where you could let go of all your worries, all your pain, all your troubles, where you could let yourself fall without drowning, feeling completely safe.”

I’ve enjoyed reading The Girl Worth Fighting For, I give the story of Logan and Rainey 4 stars.

The Girl Worth Fighting For by Julia Goda
5 stars

Unfortunately this is my first read in the series. I didn't realize it was book 2 until I was deep into it~so I need to go back and read Cole and Lizzy’s story in Wrong Side Girl.

I loved this book for many reasons. It has such depth and emotion. It shows perseverance, tenacity, heartbreak, overcoming circumstances, internal struggles, self worth, abuse, abandonment, friendship, family, loyalty, hope and love.

Rainey was the girl who adored her father. She shadowed him throughout his boxing training and career. She was his Princess and he included her in his journey. The first night she was allowed to watch his fight live was the night that changed everything as she knew it. It changed the way she guarded her heart, the career she chose, the limited people she allowed in her inner circle and the way she viewed relationships.

Logan started to volunteer at a local shelter when he wasn't training for his upcoming boxing fight. He had his eye set on Rainey from the start. As soon as he met her he knew she was different than any other girl. He was determined to do everything it took to break down her walls are get his chance with Rainey.

Rainey kept turning down his advances and trying to avoid Logan. But he wasn't going away easily. It was hard to avoid his muscles, dimples, warm and sincere smile, his good heart and the way he connected with the kids at the shelter. The times he pushed Rainey’s buttons to challenge her was fun for everyone else to witness. Rainey was a strong willed woman and they loved watching Logan trying to win her over.

“But he and I could never happen. I had a rule I lived by, a rule I wouldn’t break for anyone. I knew men like him, arrogant and self-righteous men who *messed* everything up if things didn’t go their way—or even when they did. The risk was just too high. I had been subjected to that once already in my life, had been helpless and too scared to do anything about it, then disappointed and angry and so many other things I don’t need or want to revisit. Ever. I had sworn to myself to never end up in that position again. So there was no way Logan and I would ever get involved, no matter how hard he tried. And he had tried. Oh boy, had he ever.”

Rainy became good friends with other employees at the shelter. They were like family to her and the few she started to trust and open up to about her past. Her friends Lizzie, Cole, Taryn, Bobby, her mom and Ben were all rooting for Logan to break down her walls. They wanted Rainey to see how much Logan adored her, how protective and genuine he was with her heart. They wanted her to let the past go. Logan was very observant and wound watch her from a distance. Yet he never could piece everything together that made her react to him the way she did.

“His eyes roamed my face and his stance relaxed. Then he answered my question. “Not a chance. I’m gonna let this go for now. But get me, Rainey, I might not yet know what exactly that scumbag did to make you dislike ‘people like me’ so much, but I will find out. And once I do, I will prove to you I’m better than him. Right after I pay him a visit and teach him a lesson. Now that I know it’s not me you don’t like but what I do for a living, I’ll do anything I can to make you realize I’m not like that *guy* who screwed you over.””
