Worth the Chance is book two in the MMA Fighter series. The first book was raw, tempestuous, and unruly. In contrast, there is something sweet and innocent about this story. In some ways, it reminds me of the teen romances I read as a kid. This is despite the fact that the hero is an MMA fighter. This is about the realization of young love, first love.
It is not an overly complicated story, but it is pleasant. I enjoyed the characters. I love heroes who are unashamed of where they come from and are not defensive about it. "He is who he is, and makes no apology if it's not what you expect." Vince knows each and every obstacle he has had to overcome to be where he is today.
Liv, on the other hand, struggles to live up to everyone's expectations, including her own. She is an ambitious young reporter with a story that can make her career. I feel her burden of trying to achieve her dream but struggling at the cost.
Their relationship is sweet. Because this is a reunion of first loves, it still has that sense of innocence (even though Vince is fairly far from innocent). Ms. Keeland does a nice job of balancing both the joy of rediscovery with a fair amount of heat.
IN A NUTSHELL:
I think this book is better than the first and encourage Ms. Keeland to keep it coming!
Thank you to the author for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn't change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work. She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!
