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?
This is the second book of Vi Keelnad's that I have read and the second book in the MMA Fighter series. In Book 1 'Worth the Fight' you meet Vinny as a 13 year old boy who Nico has taken under his wing knowing his life at home with his mother is no good. Move forward about twelve years and Vinny is now Vince "The Invincible" Stone professional fighter, ladies man.
Liv (short for Olivia) Michaels is an intern the Daily Sun Times. Following her dream of wanting to be a writer Liv is given an assignment to "interview some troubled mixed martial arts fighter who beats the crap out of people for a living", not knowing that this so called troubled fighter is the one person that destroyed her heart seven and a half years ago.
The first time they see each other after over 7 years there is no denying the chemistry they once had is still there. But, for Liv the memories of having her heart broken are still to raw and she immediately tries to keep the distance between them. But, Vince, being the cocky and overly confident man that he is isn't going to let it happen.
This is a story about lost love and a second chance at that love. A love that once Liv stops trying to fight seems so easy and comfortable for them both, that you would think there would be nothing that would tear them apart again. But, when old secrets begin to surface you start to worry if Liv and Vinny's love for one another will be strong enough to survive this time or will they be torn apart again.
The story is so well written and with flash back chapters you get a real true understanding of their relationship 7 years earlier in high school. It is told from both Liv and Vinny's point of view which helps develop an understand each of character on a deeper level, understanding Liv's insecurities about being in a relationship with Vinny again Vinny's troubled past growing up.
I was afraid that this might have been only a 2 book series and I was so happy when I finished and learned that there will be a third book. Vi Keeland's writing style has the ability to get you so obsessed with the characters and story that before you know it you have finished the book and you are all over Goodreads, Blog's, Amazon, basically anything just to find the release date of book three, yep that was me......
“Trust me about one thing, Liv...whatever is going on between us, it’s going to happen. You can make it as difficult as you want, but we, Liv, are going to happen. Neither one of us can stop it.”
“I’m going to bury myself so deep inside of you it’ll leave you feeling hollow when I’m not with you.”
“Soon, Liv,” he mutters between impatient kisses when we come up for air. “I want you in my bed. Underneath me, on top of me, bent over…fuck, we’re going to invent new ways for me to have you.”
“All you gotta do is say no, Liv. But, I’m giving you fair warning…if you don’t tell me no, I’m going to take you.” His serious face changes and I watch as his pupil’s dilate, heat pouring from his body as he continues, his grip on the back of my neck tightening. “And then you’re mine to do with as I please.” My breath hitches at his words, and I’m a goner.
