Worth The Fight Series- Book 2
By Sidney Halston
Sidney Halston returns to steamy Tarpon Springs, Florida, where a hell-raising bad boy prepares to get down and dirty for the woman he loves.
How could she have been so stupid? When Jessica Cross decides to give her violently jealous boyfriend—the otherwise influential and charming Dennis Stavros—a second chance, she very nearly becomes a statistic. After weeks of healing from a broken rib and collapsed lung, and with Dennis behind bars, Jessica finally feels ready to come out of hiding. But will she ever be able to take a chance on love again with someone new?
Mixed martial arts fighter Slade Martin knows he has a bad reputation. Hell, he’s probably earned it. So it won’t be easy to convince beautiful, vulnerable Jessica that she can trust him—that from the moment she walked into his life, she’s been the only one he’s wanted. Powerful and confident, Slade knows he can honor his vow to protect Jessica body and soul. Winning her heart will be another matter . . . but a woman like Jessica is worth the fight.
Sidney Halston has another knockout with her latest release in the Worth The Fight series. Full Contact is a heavyweight contender in the world of MMA romances.
We met Slade Martin in the previous book, Against The Cage. He is the brother that Chrissy had to bail out of jail for fighting outside of the ring. Slade was fully justified in his actions that landed him in jail. He was protecting the woman that had stolen his heart.
Slade fell for Jessica long before he ended up in jail for beating her boyfriend to a pulp. Her dynamic personality, quick wit, and appreciation for the simple things in life captured his heart. When her sadistic boyfriend finally goes to far and beats Jessica within inches of her life, Slade is there to pick up the shattered pieces of her soul. He vows he will take care of her and never let any harm come to her again.
Their friendship moves from a platonic relationship to a mutual attraction. They begin building a beautiful loving relationship. They will have a lot of work ahead of them to make this relationship a success.
Slade was a known womanizer before he met Jessica. Women from his past keep showing up at the most inopportune times. Jessica’s ex boyfriend is also threatening Jessica behind the scenes. She is afraid that he is going to ruin Slade and her close knit group of friends lives. Her fears are very real.
Slade will do anything to keep Jessica close. He has finally found a woman that is worth the fight.
Slade and Jessica burn up the pages with their sizzling hot romance. The humorous banter, the sexy scenes, and passionate moments will have readers placing their bets on this couple.
All the members of WTF are back in full force. Their dynamic personalities make this book even more entertaining. And yes…Drogo…the Chihuahua is back and showing these tough MMA guys exactly who is boss and who is more manly. Go Drogo!
This book was such a joy to read. Sidney Halston combined passionate scenes and humorous moments in all the right places. The dynamic cast of characters were exactly the kind of people we all want as friends. It was fun to watch Slade grovel. It was delightful to watch Jessica build up her backbone and reclaim her life after the horrific abuse she endured.
Let me just say this… I would love to go out on the town with Jessica and the girls. They are my kind of people.
Sidney Halston created a story that makes you feel good and tingle all over when you finish the book. I highly recommend Full Contact.
Full Contact can be read as a stand alone romance or in series order. Both books are worth the time and worth the fight.
I am looking forward to the next book in this series. Below The Belt will release on February 10, 2015.
Worth The Fight Series
In her Loveswept debut, Sidney Halston turns up the heat as a sexy cage fighter shows a former bookworm how delicious a few rounds between the sheets can be.
For Chrissy Martin, returning to her Florida hometown always seems to bring bad luck. The day starts with a breakup text, followed by a jailhouse phone call from her troublemaker brother. Now a routine traffic stop has ended with her accidentally punching an officer . . . in a delicate place. Then Chrissy realizes that the hot cop on the receiving end of her right hook is none other than the man from her teenage fantasies.
Jack Daniels knows how to take a hit. After all, when he’s not chasing reckless drivers, he’s kicking ass in a mixed martial arts ring. So what takes his breath away isn’t the low blow, but the woman who dealt it: a gorgeous knockout with legs Jack wouldn’t mind being pinned under—who just so happens to be his best friend’s nerdy little sister, all grown up. Soon their instant chemistry leads to a sizzling affair, but Jack and Chrissy are fighting an uphill battle if they want to make love last beyond the final bell.
In Sidney Halston’s latest sizzling MMA romance, a former title contender turns the tables on his knockout trainer with a lesson in seduction.
Once one of the most sought-after names on the mixed martial arts circuit, Antonio “Scarface” Marino watched his career go down for the count as he chased skirts and made tabloid headlines. Now he’s finally making a comeback, and it’s all thanks to Francesca Silva, a Brazilian bombshell as tough as any of her fighters. But who’s the real Francesca: the trash-talking trainer who rides him hard, or the vulnerable woman who blushes at his touch?
Francesca went to the mat to sign Tony because she believes he still has the potential to bring big success to her gym—if she can keep his head in the cage and out of her personal life. After a short-lived marriage soured her on love, a one-night stand is all she can handle. Now Tony’s kisses are stirring up complicated feelings—especially when he agrees to face her ex in the ring. Francesca’s used to freezing guys out. But Tony’s tempting her to give in to the heat.
After working hard as an attorney, Sidney picked up a pen for the first time at thirty years old to begin her dream of writing. Having never written anything other than very exciting legal briefs, she found an outlet for her imaginative, romantic side and wrote Seeing Red. That first pen stroke sealed the deal, and she fell in love with writing. Sidney lives in South Florida with her husband and children. She loves her family above all else, and reading follows a close second. When she’s not writing, you can find her reading and reading and reading. She’s a reader first and a writer second. When she’s not writing or reading, her life is complete and utter chaos, trying to balance family life with work and writing (and reading). But she wouldn’t have it any other way.
