REVIEW and GIVEAWAY
WORTH THE CHANCE
A New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance
By NY Times Bestselling Author VI KEELAND
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?
I was so excited to receive an ARC of Worth the Chance, which is Book 2 in the MMA Fighter series. It absolutely can be read as a stand alone, but Worth the Fight was fantastic and one of my favorite reads of 2013, so I highly recommend Nico and Elle’s story.
Worth the Chance is Vince’s story, and Nico and Elle both make brief but important appearances. Vince and Liv loved each other years before in high school; she was the cute nerd who tutored Vince, and he was the gorgeous jock who needed help with school. He was from a rough background and felt like he wasn’t good enough for her. Vince broke Liv’s heart when she thought he rejected her.
Fast forward over 7 years and Liv is a journalist and Vince is a MMA fighter. The story switches between the past and the present, so I really got to know the characters, and the supporting characters as well. This is a fast-paced, sexy and yes, very tender story that gripped me from beginning to end. The story rockets along but never gets too unbelievable and the sex scenes are scorchingly HOT.
Vince is a beautiful character who protects what’s his and Liv is smart, and very, very sensitive. I love how she, too, fights for what’s hers. Worth the Chance is a great fighter story with well-written characters, a fast-paced plot, and STEAMY sexy times! Oh, and plenty of romance,too. Vi Keeland has become one of my favorite authors and Worth the Chance does not disappoint.
