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?

5 Vince “The Invinnnnnnciiiiible Stone” Stars!
Incredibly Sweet, Intensely Sexy and Full of Alpha Male Hotness!
I can’t resist a story where the main characters have a history. When childhood friends fall in love and then something separates them only to find each other once again, years later, all grown up and sexy and irresistible to one another. Where their long ago feelings resurface only to realize they never truly went away to begin with. Was Worth the Chance that kind of read? Yup! Did I absolutely love it? Definitely!
We met Vinny in book one, Worth the Fight as a smart ass kid who the hero, Nico, takes under his wings, introduces him to the MMA Fighting world, all in an effort to give him something constructive to do with the crappy hand life has dealt him. Vinny is all grown up now and is training for his first real MMA fight. He’s a bit arrogant and full of himself and his present is filled with one night stands, no emotional connections and a lot of partying. But he’s never forgotten the one girl that still invades his thoughts from time to time.
Liv is trying to fulfill her dream of becoming a journalist. When she’s told to get a story on an MMA fighter, she visits the gym where he works at only to discover the boy who broke her heart years ago is now the man she needs a story from.. and he’s all grown up and sexy as hell!
These two... wow, words fail me. I loved Vinny! He was definitely no longer a boy but a tempting, take-charge alpha male who likes to dominate everything, including in the bedroom. Just as Liv couldn’t resist him, I couldn’t help but fall in love with his charm and snark. I could have easily fallen at his feet and done whatever he wanted me to do. The man was yummy!
But more than just steamy sex scenes and hot alpha action, this book had a fantastic story. These two had history and the author takes us on flashbacks that are sweet and beautiful and you get a full sense of what these two should have been years ago, if Vinny had of felt more secure of himself.
Their present is one of reconnection, learning the other as well as themselves but they also have a huge hurdle to overcome before they reach their HEA.
Liv was a great heroine, even though I wanted her to tell Vinny about the story right from the start. She was strong and independent. And “the bitch slap heard around the world” was long overdue! I actually stood up and cheered for Liv. It. Was. Awesome!
The conflict was very predictable but that didn’t take away from the fantastic writing or the perfect romance or the sweet story.
