Publisher's Summary

"I’m doing just fine on my own. Love is for the weak."

When Grayson Barker lost his leg during his last deployment with the Marines, he might as well have lost his life. He’s gone aimless and bitter, and even though he knows his friends and family are just trying to help, he’d much prefer it if everyone just left him alone to rot. Having PT isn’t going to help him get his life back - even if his therapist does funny things to his libido.

"I keep it casual. Not because I don’t love anyone, but because I do. And those you love always hurt you the most."

Dylan Wexler doesn’t work with vets. He’d spent too long as a child dealing with his father’s PTSD that spiraled into abuse, and while he might be mended physically, the scars his father left behind still cut deeply every day. But having friends means making sacrifices, and when he’s talked into helping Grayson learn to walk with his prosthetic leg, he’s determined to his best work. Even if the man drives him to distraction.

Welcome to Worthington, Texas, where the heat doesn't just rise in the summer - you'll feel it all year long in these stories of older men and their younger lovers. Every audiobook in the Worth It series can be listened to on its own, but with so many familiar characters to love, why stop with just one? This audiobook features a heart of stone, the patience that heals it, and a sensual threat to so many professional ethics.

A great addition to the series

Another great book gets added to this series!

Grayson has lost his leg and has turned down PT. When his family gets together and forces the issue, he meets Dylan and together they turn his world upside down.

Such a sweet premise and follow through. I've really enjoyed this series and I think Nikola Muckajev is an awesome narrator!

Grayson

This was a totally different Grayson than what was portrayed in book one. It shows what a wounded soldier goes through.
I felt the characters where well defined and made this a believable story.

Great Series

While this was not my favorite book in this series, it is still a good one. I don't think the characters were as well developed as in some of Styles' other books. It seemed a bit rushed, or maybe over before it was really started. But the storyline was and ideas were really good.

Emotional story

This was an emotional and heartwarming story. Grayson and Dylan both had baggage to deal with before they could really be together. After a rough start, things are good for a time until baggage rears up and needs handled. I was sad they couldn't work on it together, but happy for the way things ended. A beautiful story. bThe narrator's voice and expressions added to my enjoyment of this story.

Someone for everyone

PTSD is a serious disease and people go through it differently. The one thing they all have in common is needing to have a professional to talk to about what they feel. I liked the psychologist in this book she was spot on for him, leading without pushing and getting him to see that he's worth a shot.

My favorite of the series so far

OVERALL: 3½ stars
I was impressed with "Worth His Salt" and recommend it for everyone who likes a tough, gritty hero but also a more gentle guy who won't be a pushover. It was fun to see the relationship develop between Grayson and Dylan. I think you'll enjoy the ride as well. Some good life lessons along the way. You'll enjoy this book.

PERFORMANCE: 3 stars
I listened at speed 1.4 (since it would have been unbearable, for me, listening to this reading at normal speed)
There was no distinction between main character voices, and so when I had to stop listening and pick up where I'd left off, I would be lost for a while since I wouldn't know who the "I" speaking or the "he" was until a proper name was thrown in.

Although Nikola Muckajev's voice was pleasant to listen to, it sounded more like he was doing a book reading than a performance of the book, although there were moments when he let emotion came through. Unfortunately, that was never the case during the bedroom scenes, when there should have at least been a hint of passion in the words spoken while they were doing it together. As it was, it sounded like I was listening to a first-edition sexbot and I couldn't help laughing. I mean, really—imagine Siri or Alexa reading this portion from late in the book: "I was twitching and moaning and nearly senseless. 'Grayson' I finally begged. 'I can't—can't take it. Please... you've got to—Oh god, f+++! I need you. Baby, I need—I....'" (Okay, in all fairness, at least some emotion came through in the "Oh god, fuck!" part, but otherwise it came across as simply a reading of words that did not at all convey what was happening as those words were uttered by Dylan. These were scenes where a narrator could really show how good they are. If it titillates the reader, he did it well. If he makes the reader titter at his reading, not so much.

STORY: 4½ stars
This is my favorite of the series so far (although I have not yet listened to them all). From the earliest chapters it was clear that this story was above average and even, for a few chapters, had me thinking it could be on the level of award worthy, it was that good, but it did not quite hit that mark. (It is, by my standard, just as rare for a book to achieve a 5 star rating as it is for a book to deserve the lowest rating). If you are not left with a Wow! it wasn't perfect, so it's not a 5.

The story of "Worth His Salt" was definitely solid and satisfying, and I will likely listen to it again. Very real, and the characters had a definite connection. I'm wondering, as I write this, if perhaps we could have seen Dylan's relationship with his Dad, and if we could have seen Grayson before and when the tragic event resulting in the loss of his leg happened, if it would have made this the Wow! 5-star read it easily could have been. But anyhow, it is a great read and I don't want to take away from that. Peter Styles deserves applause for a great story and great book. I heartily recommend "Worth His Salt".

Sweet story.

This was a sweet story. The characters are believable, and I found myself pulling for their HEA. The narrator is easy on the ears. I would recommend this book.

Let the healing begin

I really enjoyed this book and the subject matter hit home with amputation and the prosthetic. I felt that Dillion was very necessary for Grayson to heal. The story had a nice flow and the ending put a big smile on my face. This is a wonderful book that I would recommend to friends and family.

Brill

I thought this was a brilliant book to listen to as I really enjoyed the journey that both Grayson and Dylan went on after they met each other when Dylan was employed to be his physiotherapist. They broke up after Dylan thought history was repeating itself with how Grayson was acting. Grayson realised he had to be happy in himself and they got back together after some months apart

Better together

I listened to this in one session. I enjoyed it more because of the introduction to Grayson in Book 1 and recognized that he was someone I wanted to know more about. I have a soft spot for stories about veterans and this didn't disappoint. Both main characters have an abundance of strengths, but have their weaknesses too. They fight to overcome these, apart and together, and this makes the book for me (along with the awesome heat between Grayson and Dylan). I am now looking forward to Finn's story after the teaser in this book!

The narration is clear and well paced, and this added greatly to my overall enjoyment of this story. I certainly want to hear more of Nikola Muckajev narrating this series.
