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.

My Review:  I've really enjoyed Vi Keeland's MMA Series.  I mean hot, sexy MMA fighters and I'm in.  Put that together with a great story and you've got a winner.  Worth Forgiving is the last book in the series, all of which can be read as standalones, and is Jax Knight's story.  We met Jax Knight in Worth the Chance, while Lily St. Claire, the female main character in this book, is new to the series.  This is their story.  Jax is a business tycoon who represents investors.  He also has always had a passion for MMA fighting, something that has lead him to Lily and the MMA gyms her father founded.  He is immediately infatuated with Lily and wants to pursue that further, and Lily...well once you meet Jax Knight you are pretty much done for.  He is everything you could ever hope for in a man.  Unfortunately, she has an almost psycho ex, Caden, who has a hold  on her who also happens to be an MMA fighter himself, something that causes a problem.  Jax also has a secret he hasn't revealed which could destroy everything, and Lily has to decide if Jax is "worth forgiving."

Worth Forgiving is a nice ending to this series.  While Lily and Jax's story isn't quite as intense as the previous two novels, it was still enjoyable.  I loved Jax.   In my opinion he is what made this book.  I liked Lily, but she wasn't as strong of a female lead as I would have liked to have seen.  In the previous two novels, the female MC's made a much greater impression on me.  The romance is hot and sexy, however, which is something Vi Keeland does well, and the story is well written and keeps your attention throughout.  Overall, I did enjoy Worth Forgiving and would definitely recommend it to fans of the series and to contemporary romance fans, especially those who love hot alpha males.  
Favorite Quote:
“Love isn't something you can turn off. When it happens, it takes a little piece of who you are. I think sometimes people keep fighting because they're more afraid to lose that piece of them, rather than lose the person they love.”

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.

Meet Liv Michaels
It may have been seven years, but I'd know him anywhere. Sure, he's grown, filled out in all the right places, but his captivating blue eyes and cocky grin are exactly the way I remember. Even though I'd much rather forget.

Liv Michaels is almost there. She's smart, determined and weeks away from landing the job she's dreamed about for years. Time healed old wounds, even her broken heart from the devastation of being crushed by her first love.

Meet Vince Stone
Women love a fighter, especially a good one. Lucky for me, I'm damn good. But there's one woman that isn't interested. Not again, anyway.
Vince 'The Invincible' Stone is every woman's fantasy...strong, sexy, confident and completely in control. Growing up surrounded by chaos, he's learned never to get too attached. Love will drag you down. He adores women, treats them well, puts their own needs before his own...for the night anyway. With the biggest fight of his life coming up, his focus should be on training.
When fate brings Vince and Liv back together again, there's no denying the chemistry is still there. But can Vince erase the old scars their past left behind? Or will Liv hurt him instead?
**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 18.
