Title: Worth Saving
Author: W.S. Greer
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: October 17, 2015

When we first met, we were both lost. It was written in our eyes when we first saw each other. My past haunted me, your present haunted you. I could see that you were aching, yet trying to bury the pain deep down so that no one would know, but it was there. I saw it. I saw you. 
I thought you needed me to swoop in and save the day; to be your hero, your knight in shining armor that would ride in and rescue you from the torment. And something inside drove me to a place I'd never been before. A place where it didn't matter how stacked the odds were, because nothing would stand between us. Nothing would stand in the way of me being the savior you needed me to be, and I'd go to hell and back to protect you. I thought you needed me, but I was wrong.
It's me who needs you. I need your heart next to mine in order to get over what I've been through, and to push through the obstacles that are in our way now. It won't be easy. It'll be the hardest thing either of us has ever had to endure, but as long as we make it through together, it'll all be worth it, because you're worth every bit of the struggle. It's because of you that I can stare death in the face and not feel the slightest hint of fear. You make it all okay. You're worth it. You’re worth saving.

4 Stars

Two lost souls. One haunted by their past. The other haunted by the present. Can the find a future together? Looking into each others eyes they could see the pain each was in and relate. While they want to help each other they come to realize they don't need help they just need the other person in their life. They will have obstacles they must face and push through. In the end it will all be worth it and they are both worth saving.

Worth Saving is the first book I have read by W.S. Greer and it was very enjoyable. Layla and Austin have been through a lot in life and both are at a kind of lost point in their lives when they meet. Not really going anywhere, but not falling too far back. The book opens with a glimpse of Layla's past. You get to see what has formed her into the person she is in the book and how strong she can be. Then we get to see what happens in Austin's present that sends him into a tailspin and his life off tracks. These two are both very strong individuals who see each other's pain and while they should be working on bettering themselves the only time they seem to be better is when they are together. Great story of trying times in two people's lives and what they must do to persevere. I look forward to reading more from W.S. Greer. 

“The story itself was amazing. Both Layla and Austin's story hit home for me. Layla was so brave. She fought her way out of one hell into another.” ~ My Girlfriends Nook Korner
“The characters are real and it’s easy to see their pain. Click it up friends if you want a brutal love story along with a story of survival. It’s good. Give it a chance! Everyone is worth saving.” ~ Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets
