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?
Liv is writing a story to land her the job she has always dreamed of. Never in a million years did she think the fighter they were sending her to write about was the same Vinny that she fell hard for as a nerd from back in the day. She tutored a boy that was the epitome of a bad boy, but she got to see deeper. She saw the man he could become.
The sweet bookish, girl next door was Liv..Vinny knew he wasn't the kind of boy that could deserve her. One night he almost pushed too far, and after that their paths went different directions. Always wondering what could have been?
When the story leads down a path she is not willing to take him, futures are altered and choices made to save the boy who never had it easy. But Liv had already taken over
Vince's heart and he wasn't able to see an ending that did not include her.
"You rewrote the ending of my story with the truth."
Possessive, hot, muscled and would kick anyone's ass that got too close to what was his..mmm Vinny..you grew up so nicely! Loved it!
What do you do when you are put in a situation to be face to face with your high school crush, your first love and the first man to ever break your heart? That's exactly what happened to Liv when she is asked to interview Vinnie for internship she is doing.
Vinnie can't believe when he sees Liv show up at his self-defense class. It's been seven years since he last saw the girl who used to tutor him in English and also stole his heart. He knows she's still upset about how he just left her - but he thought he was doing the right thing, thinking there was no way he was good enough for her.
Liv really doesn't want to fall back into feeling something for Vinnie. She knows he's a player - and she's not sure if she can trust him to not leave her again. Vinnie is very convincing in his attempt at starting things up again with her.
"It's just you. It's all too much, too fast, and too intense, and it scares me. Scares the hell out of me." - Liv
"I want to promise you I'll slow down, take things slower, but I don't want to start things off on a lie. I'm not sure I can do slow around you, Liv." - Vinnie
Even though they agree to give their relationship a try - Liv is keeping the real reason she's doing the story on Vinnie to herself. She wants to tell him the truth, she thinks she's doing the right thing and doesn't want to hurt him. In the end, the truth is exposed and the fallout is heartbreaking.
I loved this story about Vinnie and Liv. I enjoyed seeing how they first met back when they were in high school - and learning how that relationship changed as they got to know each other. There were lots of fun moments - I especially enjoyed the game of "bar forensics" that Liv played with her best friend and then Vinnie. And Vinnie, well lets just say - he is hot and sexy, with a caring heart. A beautiful story of second chances in more way then one.
