Against the Cage is funny, steamy, scorching, and holy hot MMA fighter, I wanted more! Five stars all the way!”New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Toni Aleo

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.

From Publishers Weekly

14 April 2014 – When ditzy doctor Chrissy Martin reluctantly returns to her hometown of Tarpon Springs, Fla., to get her brother, Slade, out of jail, the first thing she does is inadvertently punch a police officer in the family jewels. Worse, the man of the law is none other than the unfortunately named Jack Daniels, Slade's best friend. Both Slade and Jack are fighters on the mixed martial arts circuit, which becomes a major point of contention between Jack and Chrissy, since her professional ethics clash mightily with the brutal fighting world. Scene-stealer Drogo, the tiny Chihuahua/pit bull terror of the town, adds yet more comic relief to Halston's naturally humorous writing style. The story straddles the worlds of white picket fences and gritty cage fighting with an interesting blend of explicit sex, profanity, violence, memories of family tragedy, smalltown life, and close character connections. Some stilted dialogue hampers the flow, but the characters' emotions ring true.

Customer Reviews

Great read

What a great read. A great romantic story with heartache and regrets and a HEA. Enjoyed the story and the characters. LOVED the dog lol

Fabulous Debut

I love this book! Great start to the worth the fight series!
From childhood friends to an adult romance. This is is a great read.
Jack is awesome. Hot, nice and he wears a uniform ;)
Chrissy is a doctor and I like how her character is not the typical aloof doctor. She has ditzy moments (the car scene where she meets Jack again is hilarious) and watching these two find love was sooo good.
Buy this book! :D
