WORTH THE CHANCE
A New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance
NYT 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?

So......I liked it. It had elements that always make me happy
- Alpha, bad ass, dominant tattooed male
- Friends to lovers
- Taming the bad boy
- Broken Male with a shit ton of baggage
- Nico and Elle being an integral part
But where it fell a bit short for me (so don't hate me)
It felt too smooth and polished to completely feel the angst of the story. Everything just lined up so perfectly. Sometimes I feel like Goldilocks with reviewing but in the end I think it really comes to mood, timing and expectations. Sometimes the combo all lines up and other times they are unfortunately are maligned.
But in the end I did like the idea and concept of Liv and Vince. I don't want to say too much more as it will contain spoilers but if you like the MMA world, NA to adultish genre, dominant men and a love story than this book and series are worth a read.
