Worth the Fight #5
Releasing Jan 5th, 2016
If you love the MMA romances of Vi Kreeland and Kendall Ryan, Sidney Halston’s Worth the Fight series will knock your socks off! In Fighting Dirty, a geek-chic cage fighter proves that appearances can be deceiving . . . and oh-so-tempting.
With his preppy clothes and horn-rimmed glasses, Enzo Silva is the last dude anyone expects to find in a mixed martial arts gym. A wealthy Brazilian banker who never had to fight for anything, Enzo’s stuck in the amateur circuit—but he burns to make the pros. Maybe that explains the heat he feels whenever he’s around Jamie Lynn Calhoun. The pint-size, magenta-haired bartender with the Texas drawl is everything he’s not . . . and everything he craves.
Tough as nails and independent to a fault, Jamie Lynn—JL to her friends—works hard to pay her bills and keep life simple. Enzo is doing his best to complicate that. Even though she likes to bust his balls, he’s got some kind of a nerdy-hot vibe that makes JL wonder if she might finally be able to let her guard down. It might do the boy some good to spend some time in her world, where blood, sweat, and victory are as sweet as the first taste of real love.
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.
“What made you change your mind about going out with me?” he asked as they crossed the parking lot. “Not that I’m complaining. But you’ve been saying no for almost a year.”
Fighting Dirty is the 5th book in Sidney Halston’s Worth the Fight Series, and is Enzo and Jamie Lynn’s story. These two characters couldn’t get any more opposite. I know the saying is cliché, but in this book the saying “opposites attract,” fits the bill to a T. Enzo comes from money and his attire and mannerisms show it. He’s always impeccably groomed and is totally hot. He’s from Brazil, but now is in the US after a failed and loveless marriage. Jamie Lynn is tough as nails, or at least that is the image she presents with her tattoos, boots, and wildly colored hair. She has also had a really tough upbringing and had an experience that changed her life, one she’d like to forget, but also one that has made her embrace her “tough girl” persona. The one thing they have in common is MMA and Worth the Fight where both Enzo ad Jamie Lynn’s twin brother Travis train. Enzo’s had a thing for Jamie Lynn for a while, and relentlessly tries to get her to go out with him. Jamie Lynn is secretly attracted to Enzo, but she also consistently shoots him down because she thinks they are too different….until one night, she finally says yes. Their relationship pushes the limits in every area and to say it is intense, is an understatement. They have their problems and have some issues they both have to work through, but they also have something that makes fighting through those issues worth it.
I enjoyed Jamie Lynn and Enzo’s story and watching their relationship develop, taking in all the things that happened in the process. Another bonus was getting to see the characters from the previous novels as well, which was great, but each book in the series can also easily be read as a standalone companion novel. Fighting Dirty is entertaining, has a lot of humorous moments, as well as some really sexy and intense ones. Fans of Sidney Halston and of this series, will enjoy Fighting Dirty.
