Review: Worth the Fight (MMA Fighter #1) by Vi Keeland

Title: Worth the Fight
By: Vi Keeland
Series: MMA Fighter #1
My Copy:
Book Whisperer's Rating: 

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.

Vi Keeland, pat yourself on the back because Worth the Fight just rocked my world.  I mean, it is hard to go wrong when writing about a MMA fighter but the story that Keeland wove together was much more than just Nico’s fights and the romance between Elle and himself.  It was so much more. 

Granted, their chemistry together was undeniable and sky rocketing.  Everything that Nico did was absolutely sexy to Elle (and if I have to admit, it was sexy to me as well.)  They woke up each other’s sense when they met and started to realize what it was like really live.  But that isn’t even half of it.  There is a common thread that they share connects them deeper together than what they thought was possible.  This thread brings so much pain that it is secreted by one character and slips the other character into a sort of depression.  This is the meat of the book; this is what changes them for the good or the bad.  To read about their struggles with this common thread, to see how it damaged them, and to see it unearth is what made this book a fantastic read for me.

I also saw that the second book is going to be about Vinny; can I get a round of high fives?!
