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:

It’s definitive. I can’t resist a book with a MMA fighter. This weakness of mine isn’t diminishing with time and Vince isn’t going to change my mind!

Will this book stay with me? No.
Did I enjoy reading it? Yes!
Do I think it’s a good book in the genre? Yes.

The plot isn’t original even though there’s a twist I think is interesting, but maybe just slightly not used to its fullest or else it would have been an even more appealing story. Instead, the plot is a lot centered on Vince and Liv, which is not a surprise considering the genre of the book, but is too reductive in a way.

Vince and Liv are interesting characters and I like the fact that they already have a past together. It makes it sweet and more believable as the romance starts quite easily and soon. Otherwise, it would have put me off.

The writing style is efficient, but I’m not surprised. I know that Vi Keeland is talented when it comes to write about chemistry between characters.

It’s a fast read, fast paced story and I think it could have been a hundred pages longer to better make a use of the subplots and even the secondary characters. I can’t help it, I’m greedy that way. 😉

Who read this book? What do you think about Vince? Is he one of your book boyfriends?
