Worth the Fight; MMA Fighter #1(Series)
by Vi Keeland (Author)
This review is from: January 5, 2017 By Kay Daniels (ePub Edition)
Elle had a steady job, a steady man and things were….steady. However, she felt something was missing. It might have been thrills or perhaps that little something called “living”, but she was okay with that, or so she thought. Until Nico Hunter walked into her life and suddenly life actually seemed worth living. That man consumed her thoughts and who knew, Nico broke her habit of being consistently late for perhaps the first time ever. Was it the excitement? Was it the thrill of something new? Was it fate? Elle wasn’t sure, but she felt alive for the first time in her life and she never wanted that feeling to end.
Nico felt the shift in his life the moment he laid eyes on Elle James. A little over a year ago his life took a major change. He was the current champion in the MMA fighting ring, but his last fight took a very wrong turn. One wrong punch and he went from Nico “The Lady Killer” Hunter to just Nico “The Killer” Hunter. Nightmares still haunted him and he hadn’t entered back into the cage since, but after meeting Elle not only did he feel a spark with her, he felt a spark to live and fight again. She may be his undoing or his salvation.
I loved the story dynamic between Nico and Elle. Two lost souls who found their weaknesses and strengths within each other and fit like two halves who made each other whole. I don’t know a lot about the MMA world, but I didn’t need to to love Nico and the world he lived in. Vi Keeland is a dynamic writer that draws you in with such ease I love reading her stories. I loved this story so much I plan to read the others in the series.
This was the first in the MMA Fighter series, but still a stand alone novel. The next one takes place years after this one and follows a student of Nico’s. Worth the Fight is a an older book, but still a fantastic read if you haven’t picked it up yet.
