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 ol

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.

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."

If you like sexy, dirty talking MMA fighters then this series is a must read. I really liked the first book, Worth the Fight, but Worth the Chance was even better in my opinion.

There's just something about Vince that grabs you from the first few pages. He's a manwhore, and he's not exactly l
4 “The Invincible” Stars

Seven years ago Liv and Vince were friends in high-school. Well, sort of. She was the tutor and he was the person she was helping. They were completely opposites, Liv being a shy bookworm and Vince being the popular and sexy troublemaker. They ended up being friends and feeling… more. Until everything went wrong and they never see each other again.
Now, seven years after, not much has really changed. Liv is now a journalist and still shy. Vince is now a MMA fighter, stil

We met Vince during Worth the Fight as the teenage kid that Nico took under his wing. But Vince is all grown up now. But his story isn’t just about his time in the ring and a certain woman that catches his eye in the crowd. Liv does catch his eye... but she did that seven years ago.

Vince is at the top, he’s struggled to get there and he’s fallen a few times – but with the help of Nico keeping him in line. When he

Liv and Vinny had an unlikely romance. Liv was the geeky tutor and Vinny was the school heart throb with girls throwing themselves at him left and right. Even before Liv started tutoring Vinny she had a mad crush on him, but after spending one and one time together she was a complete goner.

Unfortunately, things didn’t end well. Liv fell hard and had her heart broken and she and Vinny parted ways. Seven years later a writing assignment throws their lives together once more and old feelings surfac

EXCELLENT: The characteristics of a 5 star story include: an awesome story; and, I love everything about the story — characters, plot, and story elements. I would definitely read it again and I would highly recommend it to a friend and rave about it often.
My Thoughts:
Oh. Mai. Gawd. This story was just awesome. It was complex, passionate, sexy, and sweet. Vince and Liv were absolutely stellar protagonists. They had such an innocent introduction into each others lives but it was

4 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.

Liv wants to be a writer and she has landed her dream internship in Daily Sun Times. In order to get the job she needs to write a story. Sounds easy, right?! But what if the story turns out to be about your high school crush (that you were madly in love with but he broke your heart). Even better, right?!

Writing: Directional narration was off and/or missing in many places. Made it difficult for my imagination to follow along at times.

Characters: We met Vinny in book 1 when Nico was trying to keep him out of trouble. Vinny has grown up and is trying to make a name for himself in the fight arena.

Liv apparently dropped out of the sky because she has no backstory. She is a writer and becomes friends with Elle.

Storyline: Liv and Vinny meet in high school, but Vinny doesn’t think he’s good enough for

I LOVED this book! Even more than the first one! Vinny and Liv, they are kind of highschool sweethearts who find each other again and, let me tell you, what an amazing way to come back (if you know what I mean) ;)

Vi Keeland knows how to write everything. But, the sex scenes OMG.. thanks for a hero as HOT as Vince Stone, I am in love!

Totally recommend this series, now I am going to read the last one and I am so excited about it!

I enjoyed this story. Sure, there were parts that were a little far fetched - but I do not read for reality. I read for enjoyment! I would read another book by Keeland again.

Vinny was a fighter who grew up around the business -thanks to Nico saving him when he was younger.
Liv was his friend back in high school...

Life brought them back together (with some encouragement from Vinny).

The first time we met Vinny Stonetti was in Worth the Fight, the first book. He was thirteen years old and Nico had taken Vinny under his wing, trying to keep him off the streets and help him make something of himself by training him to be a fighter. It’s years later and Vinny is twenty five. Nico has since retired as a fighter and is training Vinny, who has become a fierce competitor in the MMA known as Vince “The Invincible” Stone in the ring.

I haven't read the first of these books but I have read Vi Keeland's very steamy 'Belong To You' from her Cole series. The first book in the MMA Fighter series, 'Worth The Fight' has some great reviews, so I'm intrigued by this one, too... Not to mention by the hotty on the cover!

I received this ARC about 8 hours ago. (Sue me, I had to nap otherwise it would have been four hours after I got it) But I even dream about this book.

I swallowed this. Like I do for all of Vi's books. I can't imagine my life without her books. They give the girls that are like me; strong willed, determined and too entirely independent a reason to believe we will get and we will deserve our happily ever afters even though we swear we are okay being alone.

I love second chance at love stories. Worth the Chance is the second book in the MMA Fighter series by Vi Keeland. However, you can read it as a standalone novel as well like I did. Before reading the book, I had no idea this was a series let alone the second book. Therefore, I have not read the first one yet but now I plan to. Each book in the series follows a different love story.
