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.
Another amazing novel from the amazing Vi Keeland!!!
Before I get into details regarding Worth Forgiving, I’d like to say that I am a huge fan of the MMA Series and of the author herself.
In the MMA Series, each book contributes to the general story’s expansion and we get to see the world from their side. The transition from one book to the next is always careful and elegant. It’s really very beautifully done!
In Worth the Chance (MMA #2) we met Vince and in the end, we got to meet his brother, Jax. He saw Vince’s world and how The News affected him and Liv. But we didn’t see how The News affected Jax. I loved how the story went from Book #2 to Book #3. Even though it’s been a while since I’ve read Worth the Chance, I instantly remembered what The News were and how the Book #2 ended. The first pages remind us of where he had left the story, but also introduce our next leading character Jax. The beginning is really exceptional!!
Now, let’s get into it, shall we?!
Jax is a very determined, sexy and intelligent man, whose world just crumbled. His icon is a fake, his family is he-doesn’t-even-know-what-that-is and his life is a mess. His actions were always scrutinized, but now they are reported all over the social media. He can’t stay at one place. He is being hunted down. Literally. But Jax isn’t one to quit. He changes his life and decides to follow his mind and his heart and start thinking about his dreams. Jax doesn’t give up; he is persistent when it’s about something or a special someone called Lilly..
“I’m not a man who’s easily deterred when there’s something I want either”
Lilly is a beautiful, smart but quite sensitive young woman. She lost her dad and she lost everything. He was her world. Her anchor. She needed someone to lean on, someone to take over for her while she was trying to heal herself, to overcome her grief. However, that person was not the right choice. She wanted to solve few problems and she ended up creating new ones, much more significant ones. Some may consider her weak for relying so much on Caden or for not putting him in his place. But let’s think about it..How different is her reaction from another woman’s in real life? We don’t feel guilty when we hurt someone? Even if he’s a jerk, even if we are the ones who break up with the other person..We don’t feel guilty? We don’t get manipulated from time to time? ~ Lilly is genuine and she represents many real women out there. Not every woman is the kickass woman who doesn’t give a damn, who believes in black and white..
Both Jax and Lilly are also very funny and fun to read about.
“Jackson just seems to slip out when I need to put you in your place” Jax laughs.
“You’re incredibly distracting.Don’t you have someone to beat up or some tycooning to do?”
Not to mention the very hot dialogues transpiring between them!
“You like me here. This close to you. Pinning you so you can’t move. Don’t you?”
“I wrap my legs tightly around him, allowing him to sink even deeper than he already is. I moan his name and Jax responds with a sound that can only be described as a growl.”
Finally, I would like to make some remarks about Reed and Joe. Joe was the weakling throughout the book. He finally did the right thing, but he let it go too far. He had to make difficult decisions, I admit. But, when someone hurts a woman, it’s a no-brainer for me. Family or not. And Reed...Oh Reed! I loved him! He’s the perfect friend with the most amazing advice and his lines were just out of this world!
“Shit.” “It could be worse.” “How exactly could that be?” “You could look bad. You look beautiful. It’s a great shot.” “Wonderful.” “Someone is grumpy.” ……..
Worth Forgiving is funny and sexy and is surrounded by amazing characters!!! It’s romantic but sooo hot. It’s funny but it also speaks the truth about discovering yourself, about not losing yourself, about fighting for what you believe in and for the ones you love.
It’s a truly fantastic read and it’s definitely Worth Reading!

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?
