Review & Giveaway ~*~ Against the Cage by Sidney Halston




AGAINST THE CAGE: Worth the Fight Series
Loveswept Contemporary Romance
Written by Sidney Halston


Blurb

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.

Review ~ 
I have to admit, I am really loving the MMA/fighter stories that have been coming out lately.  They are a nice change from the typical sports romances and Sidney Halston doesn't disappoint with Against the Cage
Chrissy and Jack knew each other as children, but she left town after some devastating happenings and hasn't been back in years.  Their reunion isn't typical and will probably make you laugh and fall in love with Chrissy a little more as she is in a mood to take no bull from anyone. Sidney Halston gave us interesting and relatable characters.  While I had my issues with Chrissy by the end of the story, I really liked Jack and Chrissy's brother!  
There is a lot to enjoy in this story.  If you like sports, MMA, men-in-uniform, then this one is a no-brainer to pick up.  If you like successful characters who have struggled and come out on top even while dealing with dramatic issues, you'll enjoy Against the Cage.

Author Info
Sidney Halston lives her life by one simple rule: “The secret of getting ahead is getting started” (Mark Twain). Or even simpler: “Just do it” (Nike). And that’s exactly what she did. At the age of thirty, having never written anything other than a legal brief, she picked up a pen for the first time to pursue her dream of becoming an author. That first stroke sealed the deal, and she fell in love with writing. Halston lives in South Florida with her husband and children.
