From New York Times and USA Today Bestseller Vi Keeland comes a steamy new standalone novel about a rockstar. Or two.

Dimpled smile of a boy
Hard body of a man
Sings like an angel
Fucks like the devil

I was stuck between a rock(star) and a hard place.

At fifteen, his poster hung on my bedroom wall. At twenty-five his body hovered over mine. Every girl’s fantasy became my reality. I was dating a rockstar. Yet I was slowly falling for another man. The problem was—the two men—they shared a tour bus.

Flynn Beckham was the opening act.
Dylan Ryder was the headliner.

What happens when the opening act begins to shine so bright, it seems to dim everything else in its wake?

I’ll tell you what happens. Things get ugly.

The rules:

No dating.
No sex outside of the game.
No disclosing the terms of the contract.

Rules were made to be broken, right?

Eight weeks ago I signed a contract. One that seemed like a good idea at the time. A handsome bachelor, luxury accommodations, and a chance to win a prize my family desperately needed. There were some rules though. Lots of them actually. Follow the script, no dating, sex, or disclosing the terms of the deal. After my self-imposed moratorium on men the last year, it wouldn’t be hard to live up to my end of the bargain…so I thought. Until I realized the deal I’d made was with the devil…and I was in love with his dirty-talking brother.

Going into this one I wasn’t quite sure how I’d feel about it considering it’s centered around two males and one female, but I think Ms Keeland did an excellent job of writing it. I’m not really a love triangle type of person. I’d prefer a hero and heroine, but I didn’t really mind it in this story.

I’m a big fan of Ms Keeland’s work so I knew I had to read this book. Let me tell you… Throb did not disappoint.

O.M.G. Cooper Montgomery! Rawr! I fell in love with his bossy, sexy self from the very first scene. Omigosh he is the epitome of Alpha Male! *fans self* My kind of guy for sure.

I really liked Kate too. She has a lot of character. She was trying to do what she could to help her family out and I couldn’t help but have respect for her. She’s a strong woman.

I found Flynn to be an interesting guy. Who doesn’t like a long haired, tattooed, sexy rock star? He was quite the charmer.

This story has a great flow to it. Something is constantly happening and I had a problem putting it down at times. It kept my interest from beginning until the very end.

Overall, I loved this one. I haven’t read a book by Ms Keeland yet that I didn’t like. If you haven’t read her work yet I highly suggest you give it a try. Her MMA series rocks!

Up next is Flynn and Lucky’s story. I’m super excited to read it.

Two stories so deeply intertwined, you’ll think you know how they intersect…but you’ll be wrong….

Zack Martin
The day I met Emily Bennett my whole world changed. Sure, we were just kids, but I was old enough to know my life would never be the same. She was my best friend. My destiny. My fate. I wasn’t wrong…I just didn’t know how twisted fate could be.

Nikki Fallon
After the death of my mother, moving from my dark and dreary trailer park to sunny California, I was focused on one thing – finding a sister I’d only just learned existed. Falling in love with him wasn’t part of the plan. But he filled a void I never knew was possible to fill. He had to be my fate. My destiny. Until the day I finally found out who my sister was…and how twisted fate could be.

review

My thoughts…

Wow! What a great story. This book is so unlike any that Ms Keeland has written. It’s a young adult that sort of turns into a new adult at the very end. I really loved this one.

Being honest, I had no idea what this story was about when I signed up for the review tour. All I knew was that it was written by Ms Keeland and Dylan Scott. That it was unlike any other story she’s written before. That’s it. Nothing more. It’s because of my being a big fan of Ms Keeland I knew that I had to read it.

I fell in love with both Nikki and Zack. They developed a strong bond right away. Both having suffered a great loss in their short life drew them together. I think the authors did a great job of letting these characters emotions shine through in their writing. I found myself hoping that when all was said and done in the end they would be together.

This story is so emotionally charged. Beautifully written. And one that I can’t recommend enough. I will say the plot was pretty easy for me to figure out, but that didn’t in any way take away from the story. I’m curious to see if perhaps the authors will write a story for Ashley and Keller. I really liked both of them. Keller can only be described as a meathead lol He loves to joke around and is just full of himself. He cracked me up. A lot.

Overall, I loved Left Behind!

They say men like a lady in the living room and a whore in the bedroom. I never knew the sentiment was reciprocal. Until I met Jax Knight. A gentleman in public, a commanding, dirty talking rogue in the bedroom.

Daughter of legendary fighter “The Saint,” Lily St. Claire knows firsthand how fighters can be. As the owner of a chain of MMA gyms, she’s no stranger to aggressive, dominating, and possessive men. That’s why she’s always kept her distance. But the day Jax Knight walks through her door she’s captivated by his charm. Stunningly handsome, well mannered, Ivy League educated, and confident, he shatters all the preconceived notions she’d come to think were true about men who trained to fight.

But falling for someone so soon after her breakup wasn’t something she’d planned on. And definitely not something her ex plans to allow.

review

My thoughts…

Worth Forgiving is the final book in the MMA Fighter series by Vi Keeland. I love this series so much!!! I was both looking forward too and also feeling a bit melancholy about the release of this book.

I’ve felt so many emotions while reading this series. I’ve come to love each and every hero. Ms Keeland has a unique writing style and her stories always draw me in from the very first page. Worth Forgiving was no exception.

Jax was a secondary character in book two. Not too many details were given about him. The details that were given piqued my interest though and I knew I had to read his story. He’s also a fighter like the two previous heroes. Although he doesn’t actually fight for money. It’s more of a hobby until he meets Lily.

Lily is new to the series. Right from the beginning I loved her. She was really interesting. She’s half owner of a family owned multiple gym business that trains fighters. She’s had a rough way to go since her father died. She lost her mother at a young age and her father became her everything.

The chemistry between Jax & Lily is strong from the beginning. Although Lily is reluctant to start anything up with Jax, she eventually gives in and things get really hot. Speaking of getting hot, the sex scenes are hot, well written, and plentiful. Ms Keeland is very descriptive with her sexual scenes. I had to fan myself a time or two.

There were a few things I found predictable within the pages of this book, but they didn’t take away from the story.

Overall, I loved Worth Forgiving. I loved how the author ended the series. She included each of the main characters from the previous books into the ending and after finishing up this book I felt satisfied with how things turned out.

If you haven’t read this series yet I highly suggest you do. It’s one of my favorites.

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?

review

My thoughts…

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! To be honest before I decided to read this book I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to view Vince as sexy. If you’ve read book one Vince or Vinny as he’s also know as is a young 12 / 13 year old. In this book he’s all grown up. Let me tell you… I didn’t need to be concerned at all. He’s every bit as sexy as Nico is in book one. He’s seriously hot, tatted up, and all alpha male. He’s also a wee bit bossy too.

Now onto why I LOVE this book!

I loved both the main characters. Vinny has had a hard life. He’s had to grow up quick. His mother is a drug addict so he was forced to take care of himself. His father was a solider that died when Vinny was a baby. Luckily Vinny found Nico. Nico took a young Vinny under his wing and trained him to be the fighter that he is. I love the guy. Even though he’s portrayed as a bit of a player in the beginning, when he decides he wants Liv things quickly change.

Liv. Liv has loved Vinny ever since they were kids. He broke her heart all those years ago, but she was never able to forget him. When an assignment brings them back into each other’s presence Liv finds that she still has feelings for him.

I loved the chemistry these two shared. It made their relationship really intense and the sex really hot! To say this book was hot would be an understatement.

Here are a few of my status updates on Goodreads while I was reading it:

19% “Dayum that kiss was hot!”
22% “I may spontaneously combust before the night is over.”
67% “I think I need a cigarette after reading that scene.”

Let me tell you Ms Keeland writes very hot love scenes.

There’s a lot going on within the pages of this book. I was drawn in from page one and this book held my attention until the very end. There is sort of a suspense element to it that makes it all the more enjoyable. From the plot, the writing style, to the characters that are rich with emotions, this is a beautiful love story that shows sometimes second chances are worth the risk. The author add a little something special as part of the ending that made the story all the more amazing.

Hint: Soldier (that’s all I’m saying) 😉

Overall, I can’t say enough good things about this book. I  loved everything about it. I’d rate it more then 5 Stars if I could. Up next is Worth Forgiving. It’s Jax’s story. He’s a secondary character in Worth the Chance.

It didn’t matter that the ref called it a clean hit. Nico Hunter would never be the same.

Elle has a good life. A job she loves, a great apartment, and the guy she’s been dating for more than two years is a catch and a half. But it’s boring…and she strives to keep it that way. Too many emotions are dangerous. Her own past is living proof of what can happen when you lose control.

Then Nico walks into Elle’s office and everything changes…for both of them. But what can the tattooed, hard-bodied MMA fighter and the beautiful and always steady attorney have in common? A lot more than they bargained for.

***Author's note*** THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

My thoughts…

Where to begin with this one. I loved this book and it’s characters. The synopsis caught my attention and I couldn’t wait to get started reading it. It captured and held my attention from the beginning until the very end. I kept turning page after page to see what would happen next.

Speaking of… I really liked both Elle and Nico. In the beginning Elle is described as plain and boring. She lives a relatively safe life. She doesn’t take chances. Her life is on a straight and narrow path. That is until she meets Nico. He turns her world upside down upon meeting her. The attraction between these two upon meeting is electric. They were both very aware of each other from the beginning.

Nico is a MMA fighter. He has a perfectly ripped body along with lots of tattoos to boot. *swoon* In the sports world he is known as Nico “The Lady Killer” Hunter. He’s cocky and somewhat of a player. He’s used to getting want he wants and what he wants is Elle. The chemistry these two share is strong. I loved getting to know them.

The sexual scenes within Worth the Fight were HOT and well written. I had to fan myself several times while reading them. Ms Keeland did a great job of building the tension between these two and once they came together I wanted to shout “YES!!” from the rooftops lol

Overall, this was a great read. I’m giving it a strong four stars. Ms Keeland is a new to me author and I’m glad I decided to give her book a chance. I am really looking forward to reading more of her work in the future.
