WORTH THE CHANCE by Vi Keeland
A New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance
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?

In this second installment of the MMA Fighter series, we get Vinny’s story. You’ll remember him from Nico & Elle’s story as the 13 year-old running around the gym with Nico. Well Vinny’s all grown up now and my oh my is he prime alpha male personified!! His relationship with his mom keeps him on his toes and fighting not only her battles but also his own. Liv grew up with Vinny and then he disappeared from her life so it comes as a welcome shock to her system when she finds herself in his self-defense class. The background story we discover in this installment is scandalous and raw cutting deep into all that Vinny has known. I feel for Vinny but when he goes running for the GIMPs or a release I wanted to scream. At times I wish we would’ve gotten more detail and scenes weren’t ended abruptly. And the angst of the scandal came too close to the end for me. I wanted more juice regarding what happened and characters reactions. I’m wondering if the next installment will be about Jax. I’m not going to give away who he is…you’ll just need to read to find out. The primal, assertive, alpha demands/requests that fall from Vinny’s mouth left me wanting more. The description of the effect this had on Liv was enticing and believable as I’d have reacted the same way. I love these MMA fighters as I just can’t seem to get enough of them. Give this a try!! Rating: 4.5 stars
