ARC for Review 

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. 

***Author's note*** THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18. 

The Way Ria Sees It

Let me introduce y'all to a little thing known as MMA… Yep, holy moly ladies, TRUST me when I say **Le Sigh** Mixed Martial Arts is like the Super Bowl of Martial Arts. The best of the best get in “the octagon” and take each other down using any, many, and ALL types of martial arts! Grappling and Submission moves are also permitted :) I was SMITTEN with Elle RIGHT away! She was just going through the motions ya know? Her inner dialogue reminded me of a friend or two! This was one entertaining read! Ms. Keeland does it again! Seamless and Soooooo sexy I seriously saw the movie play in my mind as I read.

W-illiam, steady, safe, kind, polite, successful, and good looking but there is nothing there that runs deep. Life with William has become a superficial lie. 

O-pportunity, Nico is drawn to Elle and Elle is drawn to Nico. His thoughts will not let him stray. Soon he will have to confront Elle. 
R-egina, an unlikely best friend but loyal through the end. Will do whatever is in her power to help Elle find happiness. 
T-ruth, the ghosts that haunt Nico will take their toll making him doubt his worth. 
H-ope, an understanding Angel, Ella refuses to leave Nico. She has learned to live because of him she will remain in his corner.

T-ime keeps moving but Ella’s past keeps pushing away her present. 

H-elp, always the fighter, Nico has never needed anyone the way he needs Elle. 
E-nraged the feelings become too much and there is so much hurt. Elle will fight but sometimes the best thing to do is do nothing.

F-ury, an awful trap is set. Now Nico will be tested and those he loves are the ones with the most to lose. 

I-magined, Elle became a lawyer for a reason. She will find a way to win what’s hers. 
G-ift, their love and their sacrifices. Nico will show Elle how deep his love runs. 
H-ome, with each other and their families, Nico and Elle will face what life has thrown their way. 
T-rue love, will be their shield to keep the pain of the past away. Nico may not have always been there but he will fight for Elle everyday of his life if he has to. 

Ms. Keeland is an awesome author. I’m so excited this will be a series. The next book will focus on Vinny whom I loved btw. I’m really looking forward to see what comes next. Pick this one up! It's an entertaining scene by scene movie! In a book!

My Rating
4.5 MMA, Nightmares, Cage, Clause, Breakup, Flowers, Secrets, Lake, Heart break Second Chances love filled stars. Seriously I drank this book like I was dying of thirst and it was purple drank! Gripping and entertaining this little gem will have you straining to keep your eyes open!

Hellooooooo MMA Goodness!!! 

Woweeeee!!! This was my first Vi Keeland book and let me tell you, It won't be my last! Eeeeep!!! This book kept me turning the pages until the very end! I won't lie the first thing that sold me on the book was the YUMMYLICIOUS cover. You know when they say ''Don't judge a book by its cover'' well let me tell you that I totally judged this book by its cover and I was not wrong at all! This book was Blazzzzzing Hot and intense! Do you want chemistry? Meet Elle and Nico .... Holy Hotness!!! These two were burning up the pages with their sexy chemistry and steamy scenes. I'm still fanning myself just thinking about that ''Bath'' scene *Panties melting*

Elle and Nico hit it off instantly when they meet at her office. He wants out of a contract and when William who is Elle's ''Friend'' bring him in so Elle could help him out with this contract. What William never expect was to lose is girl. Elle wants to have fun. Her relationship with William is predictable. When Nico walks into her life, she never expected to find her savior. Elle and Nico are both keeping deep dark secrets that are intoxicating their lives. When Nico goes back in the ring and fights his demons, Elle's past comes crashing down on her and only with each other's help they find their way to happiness.

Elle and Nico are perfect for each other! Both of them are fighting against something dark. When they first meet, never in their wildest dreams would they think that they could complete each other like they do. Both of these characters are strong, sexy and stubborn! I was screaming at Nico when he shut down in front of Elle. I was like ''Boy! What's wrong with you??? Can't you see that the girl wants to help you heal?'' Arggggg!!! These stubborn Alpha-Males!!! On another side, I never expected to find a teddy bear under all those muscles! Awwww!!! The way he interacted with his little niece ... Cuteeeeeee!!! This MMA God can cook, dirty talk and make you swoon like no other! Rowrrrrrrr!!!! Book Boyfriend material!!!!

Worth the Fight was everything I expected it to be. It was such an engaging read and I loved every second of it! I'm very excited about the next book in the series, which will be about Vinny, Nico's protege. Jump in the ring with Nico ''The Lady Killer'' Hunter and his lovely lady, you won't be disappointed! ;)

I give Worth the Fight, 4.5 sensual, steamy, action-packed stars! Ladies, if you are a fan of sexy Alpha MMA fighters ... this is the book for you! It has romance, sexy intense scenes and heart-warming moments.
