***Blog Tour*** 
Full Contact by Sidney Halston 
Worth the Fight #2

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.


My Review
4 Restored My Faith Stars
Full Contact is book #2 in the Worth The Fight series, I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes...

Full Contact is the first book I have read by Sidney Halston and to be honest I hadn’t realised that this was book #2 in a series! Although Full Contact is a standalone I really feel like I would have benefitted from reading the first book as I believe both Slade and Jessica were important characters in it and the background info would have been great as a kicking off point for this book.

That being said I still read this book without being too confused; I’m just a control freak who needs to read a book series in order!!

Ok I’m gonna start with a round of applause and a standing ovation for Slade!!! OMG I LOVE Slade it’s been ages since I’ve found a strong, sexy, alpha fighter guy that I’ve liked but holy hell Slade is perfect!!!

To be truthful I actually adore everything about him, I loved how he just melted around Jessica and became a big ole softy. Yet he still managed to kick back into alpha mode when any sexy time action happened.

Jessica is a real sweetie and I really felt that her and Slade had great chemistry; I loved the banter they had when they were being silly. Don’t get me wrong I love me a good sex scene, but this book had a base of friendship between the characters that just made it much more believable and deeper than just a sexual connection.

I actually loved to hate Dennis he’s a great villain totally psycho lol I can picture his ‘Crazy Eyes’!!

Sidney Halston has set up the future books in the series brilliantly because I genuinely want to read about Tony and Francesca, Violet and Cain, JL and Enzo and whoever turns up for Travis. I love a good ensemble cast and I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in this series as they are released!

As a busy blogger I read a LOT of books, and being honest some of them are RUBBISH!!! Just lately I’ve had a run of just OK books and this book has restored my faith a little.

Full Contact made me laugh, smile and gave me a warm contented feeling once id finished 4 happy smiley stars from me!!

About Sidney

USA Today Bestselling author, Sidney Halston lives her life with one simple rule: “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 the successful New Adult series, Seeing Red and Seeing Black. That first pen stroke sealed the deal and she fell in love with writing. Currently on sale is the bestselling contemporary romance, Against the Cage and soon to be released Full Contact, the second of the Worth the Fight series.
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 foremost.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., 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.
