It didn’t matter that the ref called it a clean hit. Nico Hunter would never be the same.
Elle has a good life. A job she loves, a great apartment, and the guy she’s been dating for more than two years is a catch and a half. But it’s boring…and she strives to keep it that way. Too many emotions are dangerous. Her own past is living proof of what can happen when you lose control.
Then Nico walks into Elle’s office and everything changes…for both of them. But what can the tattooed, hard-bodied MMA fighter and the beautiful and always steady attorney have in common? A lot more than they bargained for.
Worth the Fight
I was totally hooked into Worth the Fight from the first page and absolutely fell in love with Nico Hunter!
We meet attorney Elle James who is a total workaholic and keeps her steady boyfriend pretty much at arms’ length. Everything in her life is emotionless and neatly planned, just like she wants it. Elle doesn’t want any drama or surprises in her life. Of course, all of this changes in a heartbeat when she meets MMA fighter Nico Hunter, and she knows her life will never be the same.
I’ve never seen a body like his so close before. It just doesn’t seem real. Both of his arms are covered in tattoos, it looks like he’s wearing colorful sleeves, only he has no shirt on. They intertwine and wrap around his bulging biceps and I get the urge to trace a path from the first splat of ink to the last with my tongue. My body’s reaction to him is unlike anything I’ve ever felt before. These aren’t feelings that I’m used to, they seem to come out of nowhere and are uncontrollable.
There are very painful reasons why Elle keeps her life relatively everything drama-free, and Nico, too, has had a traumatic event in his life which is revealed very early on in the book. Luckily for Elle, Nico knows what he wants and goes after it and wow! Nico is one HOT Alpha male, a really gorgeous, sexy and actually NICE guy who tries to break down the walls around Elle’s heart and emotions.
I know I could have taken it further after that kiss. But I don’t want one night with Elle. I want more. I have no idea why, but I do. A lot fucking more.
I absolutely love Nico! He took my breath away! He is tough, sensitive, strong and tender all at once. He loves his family and they form a tight bond around him. He has a loyal group of friends and trainers around him. Elle doesn’t feel worthy of him or his attention and all of this builds to an amazing climax which will have you on the edge of your seat, crying and cheering at the same time.
Ms. Keeland has written a very adult story, with adult themes and problems, along with some of the most breathtaking love scenes I’ve ever read. Have a cold shower ready when you read Worth the Fight, you’ll need it! I literally cannot wait for more stories in this series from Ms. Keeland.
