They say men like a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom. I never knew the sentiment was reciprocal. Until I met Jax Knight. A gentleman in public, a commanding, dirty talking rogue in the bedroom.

Daughter of legendary fighter “The Saint,” Lily St. Claire knows firsthand how fighters can be. As the owner of a chain of MMA gyms, she’s no stranger to aggressive, dominating, and possessive men. That’s why she’s always kept her distance. But the day Jax Knight walks through her door she’s captivated by his charm. Stunningly handsome, well mannered, Ivy League educated, and confident, he shatters all the preconceived notions she’d come to think were true about men who trained to fight.

But falling for someone so soon after her breakup wasn’t something she’d planned on. And definitely not something her ex plans to allow.

excerpt

Dinner and a dirty mouth

My face pinks when the waiter clears his throat, no doubt he’d heard Jax’s last comment.

“Are you ready to hear the specials?”

“Are we?” Jax arches an eyebrow, his eyes gleaming with delight. He’s not the slight bit embarrassed, but knows I am and is quite enjoying himself.

“Yes. Please.” I give him the evil eye and force my full attention back to the waiter. The entire time the waiter talks about the specials I feel Jax’s eyes burning into me.

“I’ll give you a moment to let you decide.” Graciously, the waiter excuses himself.

“Why did you do that?” I scold, my voice low.

“Do what?” He leans back in his seat, crossing his arms over his thick chest.

“You know exactly what I’m talking about.”

“Do I?”

“You enjoy watching me flustered, don’t you?”

Jax arches both eyebrows. Bad choice of words.

“You know what I mean.”

Leaning in, his voice gritty and sexy, he looks me straight in the eyes when he speaks. “I love watching you. Period. But what I like best is watching you pretend you’re unaffected. It’s like an unspoken challenge.” He pauses and leans in even closer. “I love the pink that creeps up your cheeks when I say something dirty. The way your pussy throbs when I mention what I’m going to do to you later, and you wiggle in your seat trying to control it. So yeah, I guess I do like watching you flustered. You sit and give your attention to the waiter, trying to pretend you’re listening to whatever he’s saying instead of thinking of me feeding you my cock later, but we both know you didn’t hear one word he said. Hell I didn’t hear one word watching you, just knowing what you were thinking about.”

This time, I see the waiter before he’s close enough to hear us. He smiles as he reaches our table. “So what can I get for you this evening? Did I interest you in one of our specials?”

I look at the waiter, then Jax, who arches an eyebrow with a knowing smirk on his face, then back to the waiter. “The specials all sounded delicious. I just can’t decide for myself. I’m going to defer to my date to pick one for me.” I return my eyes to Jax with a cheeky grin.

He throws his head back with a chuckle and looks at the poor confused waiter. “We’ll take whatever two are your favorites. Surprise us.”

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?

review

Woohoo! I LOVE fighter romances, and Worth the Chance was a perfect read for me! This is my first time reading Vi Keeland (I know–I really should’ve read Worth the Fight first, but I will now, I swear!), and I had SUCH a great time reading! I loved the writing, and Liv and Vinny are amazing!

Liv and Vinny met back when they were in high school together, with Liv as Vinny’s English tutor. The two of them are so adorable together, but there was always an underlying tension between them. Liv has a huge crush on Vinny, but he broke her heart one day when he abandoned her.

And now seven years, they reunite. Yes, it’s a SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE!! One of my absolute favorite genres! And add the whole fighter thing–perfection. Vi Keeland perfectly captures the hurt Liv still has, the history between Liv and Vinny, and the HOT chemistry they still have. I was totally grinning like a fool when they see each other again. Because they’re hot for each other all over again. And while Liv tries to keep her distance because she doesn’t want to get hurt again, Vinny is a persistent man and won’t let Liv go a second time.

“Guess you have to decide. Is he worth the chance? The chance that maybe if you let him in, he’ll stay this time?”

Liv has some big dilemmas to contemplate. Can she give Vinny a second chance? Or will she have to protect her heart from him? I totally LOVED Liv! She was a great heroine–she’s funny, sweet, and can hold her own against Vinny and his commanding ways. She and Vinny are so great together. They easily fall back into their friendship, but the sexual tension between them now is heightened. I was literally just waiting for them to give in to each other, and when they do, wow, it’s explosive! So, so hot. Vinny the sexy beast is commanding in and out of the bedroom. 😉

And another problem Liv has? She’s a intern/writer at the Daily Sun Times, and the story that can make or break her career is to expose Vinny’s past and hurt him. So… can she do it? Can she give up the chance at love to get the job she’s always wanted? Or will she take that love and tell the job to shove it? You HAVE to read this book to find out! It’s not going to be easy for Liv, but her and Vinny’s story is so freaking gooood.

We get both Vinny and Liv’s POVs, and we get to see them fall in love with each other more and more every day. Vinny is a total alpha–male, but he’s also so sweet to Liv. I was swooning so much at the things Vinny does for her. Just–AH! I love the sweet sides of alpha males, and Vinny is just the sweetest.

I highly, highly recommend Worth the Chance. I loved it! I couldn’t put it down and I didn’t want to end. 4 hearts!
