Review & Giveaway ~*~ Below the Belt by Sidney Halston

Below the Belt
Worth the Fight # 3
By: Sidney Halston
Releasing February 10th, 2015


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.

Review ~
Let me first admit, I love this series and look forward to each book.  Each book does stand alone, so don't worry if you haven't started yet, but if you jump into Below the Belt, there may be some spoilers when you go back to read Against the Cage and Full Contact.
I honestly don't know what to say about Tony and Francesca.  They are combustible on every level, both with quick tempers, passion and drive they fight, they kiss, they fight some more and then they can hopefully make up. I really enjoyed these two characters as they fought for their, careers, their passion, and each other.  
Sidney Halston writes exciting stories that suck you right in and make you care about the characters.  I can't wait to see who gets the next story and get sucked back into this world. 

Author Info
Sidney Halston lives her life with 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. 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, among four other novels currently in the works, including the sequel to 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.
