Although heavier than most romance novels, A Love Worth Living is well worth reading. Ms. Kade has written a very complex tale with deep characters, an impressive plot, thought provoking dialog, with enough hot and steamy sex to satisfy anyone. ~ Slick, Guilty Pleasures

Review copy provided for an honest review
Emotionally gripping yet undeniably sexy A Love Worth Living by Skylar Kade took me by complete surprise. While I expected a somewhat more serious romance after reading the publisher’s blurb, I didn’t expect two extremely damaged characters one fighting to keep her sanity and the other trying to save the woman he’s realized he’s in love with.
Carrie Farrow takes her job as a forensic anthropologist very seriously often ignoring her life and health to get the answers for the victim’s and closure for their families. Dr. David Cameron who works as the company’s psychologist has a vested interest in Carrie as a co-work, neighbor, and someone who wants more. When she returns from a dig in Rwanda, he fears that she’s headed down a dangerous path, one he ignored years before in his brother and he vows to not make the same mistake twice.
Carrie is one of those heroines who is extremely strong but a complete mess. Honestly, David was quite warranted in his worry for her and one of those heroes that goes above and beyond. While Carrie likes David as a neighbor and friend she doesn’t respect his occupation, she has her reasons and they are fairly valid. However, David decides that he wants her so he finds ways of inserting himself into her life. I like that he calls her on her crap when she treats him poorly and that he knows when to push and when to back off. She’s not a pushover and when David is slow to share his prior hurts Carrie pushes him right back.
Carrie and David’s journey is a difficult one and happiness isn’t achieved easily, this isn’t a light and fluffy read. This is a highly emotional story and one that will more than likely have you running a gambit of emotions. Although heavier than most romance novels, A Love Worth Living is well worth reading. Ms. Kade has written a very complex tale with deep characters, an impressive plot, thought provoking dialog, with enough hot and steamy sex to satisfy anyone.
