Video game programmer Marcellus Graham is in love with his co-worker and best friend, Victor Lange. Unfortunately, he’s pretty sure the feelings aren’t mutual. Even if they were, he’s got so many old scars he’s not quite ready to take the relationship leap again.
Until one night when Vic shows up drunk at Marc’s doorstep and kisses him, only to pass out and remember nothing the next morning. The two of them are stubborn more often than not. But will the chance of finding lasting love be worth the trouble?
The hardest reviews to write are the ones for books that neither wow nor repulse you. They are the ones for books that are often described as meh. Something is off, but it isn’t easy to put your finger on the problem.
Unfortunately Worth the Trouble falls into the tricky category. Marc and Vince are friends and co-workers. They both carry a torch neither is willing to act on. It was all quite cliche. Then they act on it and pretend it never happened. We all knew the relationship was doomed from the start. Too many “huge” secrets that neither man was willing to face, much less discuss, stood in their way. Misunderstandings abound until finally on the last page they ride off together into the sunset.
In all honesty, I didn’t care by the time it got to that point. I just wanted it all to be over. Both men were scarred from their pasts. Of course, these scars are at odds with each other. One can’t be controlled, and one can’t help but control. It was all very paradoxical and convenient. Easy conflict, and nothing that interested or engaged me.
I have enjoyed Jennah Scott well enough in the past for what the story was. The stories from her that I have read aren’t deep. They are instant attraction, and quickly go from first blush to declarations of love and devotion. If that is the kind of story you are looking for, Worth the Trouble just might be…
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.

Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
