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
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.
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.

been saying no for almost a year.”

head. “I guess it made me see you in a different light.”

backseat and then got in the car. “I’m glad it took me completely
humiliating myself to get you to go out with me. Maybe I won’t kill your
brother for this ridiculous bet, after all,” he said. “I’ll make
reservations at the Tackle Box and pick you up at eight tomorrow.” When
she looked at him for a moment too long, he said, “You don’t like the

deal, okay? It’s my treat. I pick where we go and what we do.”
hate giving up control, don’t you?” she asked wryly, already knowing
the answer. “Don’t worry so much. Just be ready. It’ll be
fun—spontaneous. You’ll like it. I promise.”
“Fun and spontaneous isn’t something I’m very comfortable with,” he
admitted. But then he decided, What the hell? He’d already survived
taking the biggest leap of faith of his life by moving from Brazil to
Florida, something that was so completely out of character his parents
thought he was still mourning the end of his marriage. So, going on a
date with a beautiful woman and letting her take the lead . . . what
could possibly go wrong?
he said as he leaned in and kissed her cheek. She folded herself into
her crappy fifteen-year-old Honda Civic, which was mostly red, except
for some patches where the paint had chipped off. The bumper was held

I start telling you about my thoughts about this book, I want to let
you know that I haven´t read the other books of this series(which will
probably change after reading this one). So I will just concentrate on
And to be honest – I wouldn´t even be able to concentrate on the others as my head is still screaming for air.
WoW! This book literally knocked me off my feet!
Not the story-line at all which is still captivating, but not totally
special. What I loved about this books are the characters. The
characters and their characteristics I never really found in this
combination in other characters. I love how strong Jamie is , how strong
Enzo is. They are both such determined characters who are even better
when they are surrounding each other. Especially as a reader you have a
lot of fun, but also can get very emotional.
I love they way Sidney Halston wraps her story in a unique writing style which makes reading even more fun.
In one of the reviews on Goodreads, somebody said : “Reading this book
is like taking a bath in chocolate.There is much deep, dark, sweetness
to be had!”
by one simple rule: “Just do it.” And that’s exactly what she did. At the age

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.
