Against the Cage (Worth the Fight #1) by Sidney Halston

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.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from other Loveswept titles.

***I received an ARC of this book from the Publisher, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review*** 

“What are you doing back in town?" “I think you know,” replied Chrissy. “Your brother?”


“Drogo?” she asked, her brows furrowed. “My Chihuahua,” he said, as he opened a door and out came the smallest dog Chrissy had ever seen.

“He bites.  He’s quarter pit bull.” Jack said, matter-of-factly.

 This book has it all, hot doctor, hot police officer-cage fighter, hot sex and a crazy Chihuahua!  What’s not to love? He is her brother’s best friend and she has had a crush on him for years.  When her father is killed in a car accident our heroine leaves her home in Tarpon Springs and doesn’t look back.  After receiving a come bail me out of jail call from her big brother she makes the trip home.   Only problem is once she gets there she is pulled over for speeding and guess who the officer is?
