AGAINST THE CAGE: Worth the Fight Series

Loveswept Contemporary Romance

Written by Sidney Halston

Releasing May 27, 2014



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.


I liked this book.  The beginning and the end were great…amazing really…funny and sweet, but the middle was just “eh”.  The book was good but put-down-able….am I making sense? 3.25 stars.


“Please tell me I didn’t just hit you in the…” She was too humiliated to say the word.

“In the balls? Yes, lady, you punched me right in the balls.”

Against the Cage is the story of Chrissy Martin and Jack Daniels. Chrissy returns home to her childhood hometown to bail her brother, MMA fighter Slade, out of jail after a long absence on Chrissy’s part. Immediately, she runs into Jack, her brother’s best-friend, who is now a police officer who pulls her over. Jack is really the last person Chrissy wants to see, she is still struggling with hurt feelings from a misunderstanding from the past with Jack. 


Jack can’t believe his luck when he discovers the woman he pulled over is his best friends little sister Chrissy.  Chrissy has definitely grown up and there is no denying the chemistry between the two now.  It’s not long before Chrissy and Jack give in to those feelings, but will they be able to overcome past misunderstanding, Chrissy’s negative feelings towards fighting, and other obstacles that get in their way?

Against the Cage was a sweet, fun, fast read for me.  While it won’t go at the top of my favorites list, I will pick up Slade’s story and future stories in this series and read them when released.
