Review: Fighting for What's His by Laura Kaye (Warrior Fight Club #2)

The Warrior Fight Club series is back with its second book, and this time around, bestselling author Laura Kaye mashes up two popular romance tropes: falling-for-a-best-friend's-sibling and roommates-to-bedmates. When Billy Parrish is asked by one of his closest friends if his younger sister can stay with him for a couple of months while she gets started on her new job, there was no way Billy would have refused. Ryan Curtis was one of the best people he knew, and while he only saw Ryan's sister Shayna during the few times he visited the Curtis household, she also wasn't a total stranger. But who would have thought just how much growing up Shay had gone through in the years since he last saw her? Being attracted to your best friend's little sister is one thing, but he knows better than to act on that attraction. So why does it pain him when Shay virtually friend-zones him? Can he really blame her considering she used to crush on the guy when she was younger? Not to mention Shay is confused by Billy's behavior. Is he being nothing more than a protective pseudo older brother or is he finally seeing her as far more?

This was a really good read, one wherein the relationship between main characters Billy and Shayne not only evolved from being tied together via Ryan into actually becoming a romantic couple but also on from acquaintances to honest-to-goodness friends. With all the tip-toeing they were doing about becoming involved intimately and romantically, a friendship developed, and I liked that this was far more than just about a physical connection. Billy and Shayne were highly likable main characters, and there was chemistry between them, so it was really rather easy to cheer for these two as they got a handle on their respective issues. It was great seeing the rest of the recurring characters in the series, especially Noah Cortez and Kristina Moore from the first book, Fighting for Everything, although maybe mentioning just how much Noah had changed since getting together with his best friend more than a couple of times was a wee bit too repetitive. All in all, I enjoyed Billy and Shay's love story, and am giving Fighting for What's His 4.5 stars. Can it be November already so I can read Fighting the Fire? ♥
