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 by Vi Keeland
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Second chance romance for Vince and Liv. After 7 years apart, Liv is a newspaper reporter and Vince has one of his biggest fight coming up.
I prefer stronger heroines so I thought Liv was a bit of a pushover but then I grew to love her and what she did for Vince...aww!!! The story felt predictable at first but from 40% I loved where the story was heading.
This was a really good sequel, a great plot, hot fighter, sexy and romantic. Perfect combination for my reading taste.

4.5--Vince "The Invincible" Stone--Stars!!!
Second chance romance. Childhood friends to lovers. MMA fighters.
Vinny and Liv met when they were in high school. Liv tutored the troubled Vinny. Vinny was larger than life. He spent more time in trouble than not. But Liv was drawn to him. Liv was full of innocence and good. Something Vinny didn't want to ruin. So he walked away from Liv and never looked back.
Seven years later and Vinny is an MMA fighter and Liv is an intern/writer for the Daily Sun Times. She's battling for a full position at the paper, her dream job. She's been handed a story that will throw Vinny back into her life.
Vinny can't believe Liv is back in his life. It's as if the last seven years never even existed. Vinny broke Liv's heart when he left. But he makes it known what he wants now. And what he wants is Liv.
"I want you in my bed. Underneath me, on top of me, bent over....fuck, we're going to invent new ways for me to have you."
Vinny had the perfect mix of alpha and sweet. He was demanding in what he wanted from Liv.
"All you got do is say no, Liv. But, I'm giving you fair warning...if you don't tell me no, I'm going to take you. And then you're mine to do with as I please."
But at the same time, he had this sweet side that just made you swoon.
I loved Vinny and Liv together. I loved getting flashbacks in to their past and how they met and fell in love...in fact, a few more past scenes would have been nice.
Things are great for Vinny and Liv, until Liv gets asked to expose a story that could crush Vinny and everything he's believed about his past. This is make it or break it for Liv...if she breaks this story, she will land the job. But will it ruin Vinny in the process?
This cannot end good.
Bless Liv's heart she tries to protect Vinny. She doesn't want to hurt him by exposing the truth. Torn between the job she's always dreamed of and the man she's falling in love with more and more each day.
I could see how it was all going to play out and yet there was nothing I could do to stop it.
Every day that went by that Liv didn't tell Vinny I got more and more nervous.
I knew I wasn't going to like you.
The last 15% of the book I was glued to the story. Like with Worth the Fight this was pretty low angst.
And the ending....I absolutely LOVED the ending....what Liv did for Vinny!
Love Love LOVED Vinny and Liv!
"I want you, Liv. I wanted you seven years ago. Want you even more now. So much that I can't think about anything else. Need you."
PS--This books was
If you loved Worth the Fight, I think you'll definitely love this one.
