Meet Liv Michaels

It may have been seven years, but I'd know him anywhere. Sure, he's grown, filled out in all the right places, but his captivating blue eyes and cocky grin are exactly the way I remember. Even though I'd much rather forget.

Liv Michaels is almost there. She's smart, determined and weeks away from landing the job she's dreamed about for years. Time healed old wounds, even her broken heart from the devastation of being crushed by her first love.

Meet Vince Stone

Women love a fighter, especially a good one. Lucky for me, I'm damn good. But there's one woman that isn't interested. Not again, anyway.

Vince 'The Invincible' Stone is every woman's fantasy...strong, sexy, confident and completely in control. Growing up surrounded by chaos, he's learned never to get too attached. Love will drag you down. He adores women, treats them well, puts their own needs before his own...for the night anyway. With the biggest fight of his life coming up, his focus should be on training.

When fate brings Vince & Liv back together again, there's no denying the chemistry is still there. But can Vince erase the old scars their past left behind? Or will Liv hurt him instead?

***Author's note*** THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the 18.

Sizzling Scorching Smexy. Vi Keeland continues to wow us with her luscious men.

Yes, yes I am. 

My fangirling and stalking knows no bounds when it comes to Vi Keeland

I am completely obsessed with her ability to write characters so engaging, flesh and blood realism, yet simple that the complexities that typically weigh down a character never exist. You get them every single time and her characters wants, needs, and desires are front and center. 

I loved Worth the Fight. It was my introduction to the world of a good  MMA story line. Previously I found them  amazingly overused and so cookie cutter, I lost interest in them to the point I wouldn't even bother anymore. 

Until Vi Keeland crossed my path. 

So when Worth the Chance was released, yep, I jumped at it. Not something I normally do. Typical buyers remorse ensued. Then the self doubt that lightening wouldn't strike twice. This is MMA after all. How much could she possibly do with the story line to give us a fresh story.

Well, Vi knows her men. And Vi knows what we, the readers want in their MMA men.

Powerful. Passionate. Seizes and never let's go. Arrogance worthy of an Alpha male. Dominance. A solid story line. 

Vinny, we met him as a kid in Worth the Fight. Nico took him under his wing to keep him out of trouble. No father, a drug addict mother. Not much going for him. Intelligent though, but with an anger management issue as well as the proverbial brick wall keeping people at a distance.

In Worth the Chance, we get much more back story. A definite characterization that gives such a great insight to him.

Then we have Liv.

Liv and Vinny knew each other in high school. She was his tutor and in love with him. It turns out Vinny felt the same but was afraid he would hurt her, leading her down a dark path. He loved her so much, he left.

Normally, I hate that in a story line. I find it nothing but self serving crap, but not this time. 

The authors characterizations are so strong, you understand and accept his actions. Your sad, but not angry.

They reconnect years later and this time, Vinny is all in as is Liv.

Their romance is steamy and oh so sizzling! Their acceptance of each other, faults and all just drives the story.

All consuming love. It's the best.

There are bumps in the road, Vinny's past coming back to haunt them. Liv keeping secrets. The mystery of where Vinny came from, and a climatic ending that just had me grinning like a goon.

Yep, Vi Keeland knows her men!

Book 3 and finale, Worth Forgiving is out in June and I for one, can not wait! This will be the story of Jax, who we had an introduction too. And if you go on the authors website and subscribe, you will be sent the first chapter. 

Go do it, sooooo worth it!!

Absolutely loved this story and will forever be stalking the author! Review will also be posted on my Loved These shelf on Goodreads.
