Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling Author, Vi Keeland, brings you the sexy story of Jax & Lily...

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.

5+ stars for excellent writing and performance!

What did you love best about Worth Forgiving?

The characters are full, the story is developed. Sure there is steam, but you don't jump into it on page 1 without any connection with the character. I love that Jax is a gentleman--a handsome suit wearing man, yet a sexy dirty talker who knows what they both want in the bedroom.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Worth Forgiving?

The scene where he leaves and then runs back up to get her and says "oh f*&k it" and runs back up the stairs, I was smiling like an idiot and cheering him on. The sex scenes are so well written and performed too. And there is just the right amount of them.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes! I could have listened to it twice.

Any additional comments?

Some books that have sex in them can feel like bad porn...but because you are so invested in the characters when it happens here, it makes you feel it and love it. Top 5 sexy scene writer for me.

JAX IS ALL AROUND PERFECTION!!

OMG, the best part about this story is definitely Jackson Knight (aka Jax)!! OMG, the man was glorious perfection. He was charming, educated, successful in his individually-owned business, had good manners (the ever-conscientious gentleman), but he was also a potent fighter. You get the picture, Jax had heart-palpitating appeal. So, it's no wonder how Lily St. Claire reacted when she first caught sight of him. That was one of my favorite parts....when "boys meets girl," or more accurately when "boy catches sight and can't keep his eyes off of girl, then she notices and falls all over herself"--LOL.

From the beginning Jax and Lily hit it off and their moments together were filled with special tension, the kind that made you want to rip-your-clothes-off-tension. Although Jax made no qualms about his pursuit of this beautiful girl he'd fallen for, Lilly is hesitant. Her reasoning was quite sound, as well. Lily is the co-owner of a growing franchise of specialized gyms and Jax got intertwined in the business aspect of her life through his company Knight Investments. Since he became a part of her business-related life, she refused to get involved romantically with Jax after a bad experience with another MMA fighter named Caden. Caden, her ex-boyfriend continues to make her life difficult since he still works for her and is stalker-like and super controlling.

Yet, some things are simply inevitable, as with Jax and Lily. These two are inseparable and their easy-going banter and friendliness turns into something more delicious, steamy and serious. I loved Jax and Lily together, they were cute, fun, romantic and hot! But, this story began to lose stars at the conflict part, and that's when the "stupid" came out of the heroine. I HATED how she dealt with the conflict within the relationship, as instigated by a person she should have known better than to trust. Anyhow, during that "stupid phase," I forwarded most of that part until we got to the good part; the reconciliation. Aside from Lily's stupid phase, this book was really good, and it was all because Jax was irresistible! The epilogue helped me forgive Lily a little bit. Oh, and I loved the part where Jax and his brother form a lasting, unbreakable bond. I suppose that was the only good that came out of the conflict in the book.

Overall a good read/listen. The narrator performed well.

Great writing!

What did you love best about Worth Forgiving?

Love the pace of the book..kept my attention..Great story line.

What other book might you compare Worth Forgiving to and why?

None that I've read lately..Lily was a strong character, not a damsel in distress, very refreshing.

What about Stephanie Rose’s performance did you like?

I like her delivery.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The epilogue..I liked that Jax & Vince really connected. That Jax could find one thing his father gave him that he loved was so poignant...oh & the pocket watch..I thought that maybe Lily would give to lil Jax on the first day on school. But Jax doing it said a lot about the man & father he was.

Any additional comments?

Will buy the next in the series.

Whoa! the passion

I have enjoyed this series. These books are fun, flirty and oh so sexy. Caden is a super douche.. Jaks and Lilly are so adorable. I doubt the story needed to be over 40 chapters but what can you say when the story has such an awesome ending. I also love that Nicco and Vince are dragged along into this book.

"Forgive him or Forget Him"

I really like Jax and am glad I got a chance to read his story and find out what he did after his dad's scandal. In this book. I had an issue with Lily. She was sweet but I feel the situation with Caden she was a door mat. I also did not understand how Caden uncle was so nonchalant about the whole situation. There was elements I enjoyed in this book but I wished that part was done differently.

Worth the Reading

I’ve read everything by Vi Keeland so now that I’m an Audible member it only makes sense to listen to everything again! obviously I love the book because I’m listening to it, after reading it a couple times already. My take on this review is to acknowledge Stephanie Rose & her outstanding narration! She sounded great, and did a great job with the different voices. A lot of women can’t pull off an alpha male, but I had no problem deciphering her different characters clearly and concisely, I can’t wait to check out more of this great narrator, hopefully attached to more of Vi’s books!
