Release Blitz, Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway: Worth Forgiving by Vi Keeland

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.

We first met Jax in Worth the Chance, which is book two of this series, and I for one wanted more of his story.  He grew up the rich boy, son of a Senator, but always loved MMA.  When the scandal that surrounds his father breaks, we learn that Jax just may have more of a connection with the MMA world that he previously thought.  Jax really surprised me. I knew that deep down he was a good guy but I wasn’t sure how he was going to come across in the book, I’ll just say this; I love him and want to have imaginary book babies with him.  This man is protective, funny, flirty, sexy as hell and loyal.  He knows how to set the sheets on fire in the bedroom but be totally sweet and a gentleman outside of it too. 
Lily grew up around fighters, she also is part owner of a franchise of MMA gyms.   She has a complete douche bag of an ex who doesn’t want to take the hint or the title “Ex” at all.  Lily is an artist.  She is weary to start a relationship with Jax because of how her ex is acting and treated her.  I think the only issue I had with Lily was that she has been around fighters all her life, grew up in a gym but doesn’t like fighting.  I really had a hard time connecting her with running a gym where MMA fighter’s come to train but yet she doesn’t approve of violence.  Other than that, I thought she was sweet, sure as hell didn’t need to go through what she did, and helped balanced Jax out when his own life was in turmoil because of his father.

Vi Keeland has made this reviewer a fan for life.  She sucks you in with her sexy as sin alpha males, addicting story lines and scorching sex scenes.  Add to the fact that I love MMA fighter books and for me this series has been a must read.  I can’t wait to see what she has in store for her fans next, because I will be anxiously waiting for the opportunity to read it to fall in love with whatever story she has planned.  

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.”

“Do I?”

“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.”
