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.
Worth Forgiving is WORTH the read!
** A little reminder for those that might be wondering who is Jackson...
We met Jackson briefly in Worth the Chance. Vince’s half-brother, son of the Senator – that cutie that hit on Liv and seemed like he was more beyond the smooth polish he had to show the world... Yeah, that’s Jackson.
Jax’s life has been turned upside down over the last few months when the story hits that his father, the Senator has lived a double life. The press had hounded him and for the first time he isn’t looking to be what his father has groomed him to be. That was all lost when his father tumbled from the pedestal he was perched on. Now he is off to discover his own dreams and to become his own man. Business has come easy to him but mixed martial arts has always been a passion. Heading to New York to work a deal to invest in a gym franchise will be the perfect way to blend his two worlds. Escaping the media circus and his father is just an added bonus.
Lily was raised around the ring. Her father was a fighter and now carrying on his legacy through his gym has become her life. Taking on a partner has its risks, but knowing that she’d remain in control set herself at ease. What had her nerves on edge was the beautiful man that was set on closing that deal. Attraction was instant, but she had to worry about Camden – the man that couldn’t see that her breaking up with him months ago was the end of the relationship she never really wanted. Lucky for her, Jax isn’t about to let a man unwilling to let go of a fantasy get in his way.
I am a solid fan of Vi’s work. Whether it’s in the form of a hot hotel owner or a sweaty, muscled piece of man meat in a ring – she has a way of creating fantastic alpha males that make you swoon. Each fractured in their own way but all with confidence and determination. Jax was no different. I loved watching him go after what he wanted.
The chemistry between Lily and Jax was perfection. A slow burn that ignited into a fire as they give in to what they both desire. I found myself reaching back for those moments of sexual tension though. Once these two give in to the attraction, I felt like that chemistry dwindled a bit. The sex was still scorching but I longed for that initial feeling of the build-up that was lost a bit as they tumbled into bed. The moments where they were just in each other’s company were some of my favorites.
There is a simple and easy way about the way this author writes her stories. There are twists and turns along the way, but you are never left wondering if you are going to get to that happy place by the end. It’s a pure feel good read, the kind that you can get completely lost in.
The third and final installment of the series was a great note to close this chapter on. Nico, Vince and Jax all delivered fantastic reads and I am excited to see what Vi brings us next.
Great ending to trilogy
Loved the series. Would even like a short follow up. Can’t get enough of Nico, Vince and Jax
Another great book by VI Keeland.
