Review & #Giveaway ~*~ Full Contact by Sidney Halston (@SidneyHalston)

Full Contact
Worth the Fight # 2
By: Sidney Halston
Releasing October 28th, 2014

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.

Review ~ 
Full Contact is the second book in Sidney Halston's Worth the Fight Series.  While it can be read as a stand-alone, I enjoyed the first book, Against the Cage, so much I think you should read them in order.  There is an underlying continuing story line, but if you start with Full Contact, I really think you'll get the full enjoyment out of it.

Full Contact is Slade and Jessica's story.  Slade is an ex-MMA fighter with his own troubled past and Jessica has just come out of an abusive relationship.  They have a lot of struggles and some miscommunication, but who doesn't.  Both characters are likable and easy to relate to.  

Sidney Halston does a great job of giving us awesome dialogue that will make you laugh and at times grumble at the characters, but you will always keep turning the pages to see which direction things are going to go next.  I can't wait to see what else happens in Tarpon Springs when the third book, Below the Belt, comes out in February. 

Author Info
Sidney Halston lives her life by one simple rule: “Just do it.” 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.
