<—- I read this one!! Good, sweet contemporary romance story with some extra-funny scenes in the beginning that really had me giggling, and… OMG HE is a sexy cop!!! And her brother (also the cops best friend), an MMA fighter that’s extra protective. Fun times! I liked it! I didn’t necessarily go all-out crazy for it, but it was a good lazy afternoon read.
BUT!!!!!! I hear that book #2 (that was JUST released), is SOOOOO romantically angsty… at least at one point. Some of our fellow readers were sobbing, and say it was so much better than the first! YAY ME!!!! Just look at what our fellow readers are saying:
Rachel: One of my faves of the year (so funny) … Against the Cage by Sidney Halston.
Elizabeth: I just finished Against the Cage by Sidney Halston. Best fighter book Ive read! Highly recommend it
Brenda: Just finished Against the Cage by Sidney Halston. LOVED IT! I like when the characters are old enough to have crazy sex. LOL. Sometimes I feel weird about these 20 year olds doing freaky things. hahaha. Anyway…LOVED IT. Different kind of fighter book, but really loved it.
Patty: I also read Agains the Cage by Sidney Halston. It was so good. Maryse– you must read this one! A few people were talking about it here a couple of posts ago. I am not sure why they said it was a rom com. The 1st chapter was hilarious but the rest of the book was funny but not a rom com. I LOVED It.LOVE LOVE LOVE. I think it’s my fave book of the year. I am not a big MMA fan because all MMA books have these douchy alpha males that are normally like 18 years old. Jack was totally alpha guy but so sweet! And it was way steamy! WOO HOO. Recommend it (but not as a Rom Com).
Kelly: Has anyone read a book called Against the Cage. It’s by an author I’d never heard ofSidney Halston. I got a copy from publisher and let me just say…WOW. I am in love with Jack. *Swoon*. The book was so funny (especially the beginning) but more than that had some nail biting moments and most of all…had some awesome smexy scenes. And, since I am totally into MMA right now, it was right up my ally. I love that it was adult and not YA/NA. God, I am having a boyfriend hangover right now. : ( No one I know has heard about it. How is this even possible???
Georgina: I got Against the Cage which was on sale. It was alright. Super funny, super cute, but not super angst. I recommend it for a fun light read. BUT then I picked up… The 2nd one, Full Contact that isn’t out yet. AND– HOLY CRAP. That chick (author) picked up a few pointers along the way. It was so good. Sidney has a new fan with me. It was awesome. The BEST break up scene I’ve ever read. Seriously– it paralleled Travis/Abby. I cried. Literally on the floor ugly cried. I don’t even know why I picked it up since I didn’t love the 1st one, but I’m so glad I did.
Anna: Just book binged on Full Contact. Loved it more than the 1st of series. There was a heart breaking moment among the LOL moments which killed me. Highly recommend it ladies! Now on to unbroken. More fighters for me please…
And might I say, each book cover gets better and better. The third book? *whoooooooo* *fans self*
About book #1:
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.
Adrian: Against the Cage by Sydney Halston just finished it and went mad for it. Can’t wait for the next one, Full Contact. This writer tells a steamy tale… I like her style, great writer. Funny too
