Description

If you love the MMA romances of Vi Keeland 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 oh-so-tempting.
 
With 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.
 
Tough 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.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 23, 2015 – Too many clichés clog up Halston’s fifth Worth the Fight contemporary, about a wealthy Brazilian developer and MMA fighter who romances a tattooed bartender from the wrong side of the tracks in small-town Florida. Jamie Lynn Calhoun spends a year turning down propositions from Enzo Silva. When she finally says yes, a few hours turns into four glorious days. Jamie worries about his wealthy, buttoned-up background, but he accepts her for who she is. Though Enzo loves how at ease he feels with Jamie, he worries what will happen when she learns that his business plans may derail the murals she paints with her street-artist friends. Readers will recognize Jamie’s wariness of men, the chip on her shoulder, Enzo’s evil ex-wife (who of course decides she wants him back), and several other elements of this been-there read-that novel.

Customer Reviews

The difference between living and existing....

The difference between living and existing is up to you. That is the central theme of Sidney Halston's latest novel Fighting Dirty. It also is the point that JL (Jamie Lynn) helps Enzo (Lorenzo) to discover. His happiness rests on himself and not trying to please others. Jamie Lynn is a survivor. Her life is the true testament to the saying of making lemonade out of lemons. Becoming her own person and coming to terms with the anger, heartbreak and tragedy have created a woman with thick skin that looks for the bright side but has endured life's darkest moments. Lorenzo has wealth but is not happy and his fortune has become a noose he wears daily. Sidney Halston via her Worth the Fight series has penned stories that are full of beauty, bravery and characters that capture the imagination and heart. I received an ARC of Fighting Dirty in exchange for an honest review.

Amazing

Another amazing story in the Worth the Fight series! Enzo and JL have been skating around each other in the last couple of stories and now we have theirs. I love the balance these two characters brought to each other. Enzo was always so stuffy and uptight but JL brings out his more carefree adventurous side. JL is one tough cookie. Growing up the way she did she had to be but Enzo brings out a softer side to her. Their relationship is a struggle from the beginning but definitely worth the fight!

This author and series has quickly become one of my favorites. I definitely recommend this book!

Red Hot!

Loved this sexy MMA story by Sidney Halston. This is a opposite attracts, love story, that is sizzling hot. Great characters, in Enzo and Jamie Lynn as well as other supporting characters. I thought that they had great personalities and were so sexy. These two have such a great connection from the get go between them once Jamie Lynn agrees to a date. I loved the pull they had on each other and the twists and turns add a nice bit of drama and emotion to round it all out. Definitely a super schmexy 5 star read for me.

Jamie Lynn " JL" has been the object of Lorenzo Silva's "Enzo" insane attraction since he met her when he moved from Brazil a year ago and became best friends with her twin brother Travis. JL has been rejecting Enzo's advances until she gets a glimpse of what is beneath the stuffy suits that he usually wears when Enzo loses a bet and has to model in the nude for a local community college's art class.

Enzo has just recently signed his divorce papers. He had left Brazil after he caught his wife with his ex-best friend. He comes from a very affluent family and is working for the family business, Silva Conglomerate LLC working a lead to hopefully make millions. But when JL finally accepts an invitation to go out on a date with him this workaholic is forced to play by JL's rules and he has never ever had a date like this before. And uptight Enzo can't get enough.
" He kissed her like doing so would quench his thirst after being stuck in a desert."
" His stare felt like a warm caress all over her already ignited body. "

These two are red hot together. But what happen when reality sets in? You have got to read this to get all the juicy combustible action. Super Sexy!
Highly recommended!

Received an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.
