Blog Tour Stop + Giveaway! "Worth the Chance" by Vi Keeland

MMA Series #2
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?

Worth the Chance was my first book by Vi Keeland, and I have to say, I am an instant fan!! Wow. I was hooked from the get-go and all the way till the very end!

This was the second installment in the MMA Fighters Series. You can safely bet that I will most definitely be reading book one – Worth the Fight. Even though both books are technically stand-alone novels, I suggest you read them in order since the characters from book one are very much present in Worth the Chance.

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

Vince Stone and Olivia Michaels had known each other since high school. They always had a strong attraction and feelings towards each other, but life had other plans. Seven years later, they met once again and the fire and desire between them was very much still burning.

Liv was now competing for a permanent position – her dream job – as a writer in the Daily Sun Times Newspaper, while Vince was now a very popular and talented fighter who had no trouble when it came to the ladies. Due to circumstances in his life while growing up, he lived a lifestyle unattached from everyone, especially women. He would most definitely enjoy their company, but nothing beyond a one night thing.

And now they were again, face-to-face. Only this time, Vince wasn’t letting her go that easily. Queue the swooning. The guy knew what he wanted and went after it. He made sure Liv knew that he wanted her.

“You can make is at difficult as you want, but we, Liv, are going to happen. Neither of us can stop it.” - Vince

The chemistry between these two was downright HOT. It sizzled. But Vince had once upon a time hurt Liv, so she was a bit guarded and I totally understood that. He had to earn her trust again. But let me tell you, once they fully embraced their relationship, things got even hotter. Oh, my!!! Those sexy scenes sure made me fan myself!!! Vince was one hell of a sexy alpha in the bedroom. ;) *Dreamy Sigh…* Well anyway, I just loved these two characters. Vince was honest, raw, smokin’ hot, and passionate. And Liv was beautiful, caring, strong, and sweet. They balanced each other off perfectly, I believe.

“I. Protect. You. Liv. I don’t need you to protect me. That’s how it works.”
“No. We protect each other. That’s how it works.”

The story line sure kept my interest intact. A true page turner!!! Liv’s job put her in a very tough situation. One where she could end up losing Vince. I was very anxious, to say the least. I wanted them to be happy and together, so it was really nerve-wrecking and it had me biting my nails because I knew it would end up blowing up…it was just a matter of “when” it would happen. There were also a few twists and turns I did not see coming. One specifically made my heart ache for Vince…like really ache.  There were secrets left and right and I just wanted to read more and more! The plot just flowed wonderfully and I truly enjoyed it. I loved Vi Keeland’s writing style!

Worth the Chance was a perfect mix of angst and passion about a second chance romance…which I’m always a fan of! I highly recommend you read this book!! Vince Stone is one fighter you should not miss out on!

“I’m rewriting the ending to our story, Liv. I’m giving you your happily ever after. I promise.”

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.
