Genre: A New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance novel
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 sexy, fast-paced novel with heart from Vi Keeland! I have devoured every book in this series and I fell in love with Jax, too. I cannot believe this is the end of the series!! With that said, this is technically a standalone but I HIGHLY recommend the first two books in this series, Nico and Vince will absolutely blow you away.
Jax first appeared in Worth the Chance (MMA #2). The author seamlessly transitions into Jax’s story and I loved seeing the events from Book 2 from his POV. He is hurting and reeling from some shocking, life-changinge news when he first meets Lilly. She is the co-owner of a gym and is trying to get out of a somewhat abusive and very unhealthy relationship with Caden, the nephew of her father’s business partner.
Oh Jax. Ms. Keeland has written another swoon, gorgeous, tough-but-sensitve fighter. Make no mistake, he is well-mannered and polite and a smart businessman, but he longs to fight in the ring and boy, is he a dirty-talker! The sex scenes are SMOKING hot, as only Vi Keeland can write, and burn up the pages.
“I’m not a man who’s easily deterred when there’s something I want either”
There is also some humor and light-hearted moments in between the dramatic storyline.
“You’re incredibly distracting.Don’t you have someone to beat up or some tycooning to do?”
The supporting cast was also very strong, and I usually often skim over parts of a book with the secondary characters. Not here. Reed and Joe were an integral part of the story and I loved them.
This final book in the series is hot and sexy and fast-paced and has plenty of romance. I highly recommend Worth Forgiving as well as the first two books in this series.
Excerpt: Meet Jax and Lily
Dinner and a dirty mouth
My face pinks when the waiter clears his throat, no doubt he’d heard Jax’s last comment.
“Are you ready to hear the specials?”
“Are we?” Jax arches an eyebrow, his eyes gleaming with delight. He’s not the slight bit embarrassed, but knows I am and is quite enjoying himself.
“Yes. Please.” I give him the evil eye and force my full attention back to the waiter. The entire time the waiter talks about the specials I feel Jax’s eyes burning into me.
“I’ll give you a moment to let you decide.” Graciously, the waiter excuses himself.
“Why did you do that?” I scold, my voice low.
“Do what?” He leans back in his seat, crossing his arms over his thick chest.
“You know exactly what I’m talking about.”
“You enjoy watching me flustered, don’t you?”
Jax arches both eyebrows. Bad choice of words.
“You know what I mean.”
Leaning in, his voice gritty and sexy, he looks me straight in the eyes when he speaks. “I love watching you. Period. But what I like best is watching you pretend you’re unaffected. It’s like an unspoken challenge.” He pauses and leans in even closer. “I love the pink that creeps up your cheeks when I say something dirty. The way your pussy throbs when I mention what I’m going to do to you later, and you wiggle in your seat trying to control it. So yeah, I guess I do like watching you flustered. You sit and give your attention to the waiter, trying to pretend you’re listening to whatever he’s saying instead of thinking of me feeding you my cock later, but we both know you didn’t hear one word he said. Hell I didn’t hear one word watching you, just knowing what you were thinking about.”
This time, I see the waiter before he’s close enough to hear us. He smiles as he reaches our table. “So what can I get for you this evening? Did I interest you in one of our specials?”
I look at the waiter, then Jax, who arches an eyebrow with a knowing smirk on his face, then back to the waiter. “The specials all sounded delicious. I just can’t decide for myself. I’m going to defer to my date to pick one for me.” I return my eyes to Jax with a cheeky grin.
He throws his head back with a chuckle and looks at the poor confused waiter. “We’ll take whatever two are your favorites. Surprise us.”
