Worth the Fight # 2
By: Sidney Halston
Releasing October 28th, 2014
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.

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.

I loved this book! Slade is so freakin' yummy, and the chemistry between him and Jessica is both off the charts hot and hilarious.
I did not read the first book in this series, but it's not that hard to catch up and understand how everyone knows each other. The only thing I was a bit unsure about is when the incident between Jessica and her douchetwat ex took place, I don't know if it happened at the end of the first book or not, but really, once you get into the story, that part pretty much becomes irrelevant.
There is a bit of the usual angst one finds in these books (like all of Slade's groupies), but the secondary plot of Dennis are what make up the majority of the issues in this story. Thankfully that all gets resolved, but not before it becomes a circus. And there are at least two, maybe three more books I could see happening by the end of this story, and I can't wait to read them. I believe that Tony and Francesca's story will be an absolute riot.
