Series: Worth the Fight Book #4
Author: Sidney Halston
Blurb: Growing up an Army brat, Violet Channing could never meet her dad’s high expectations. But in the eyes of her best friend, she could do no wrong. He even insisted that he should be her first kiss. Now Cain Sorensen is all grown up, hardened by years in special ops and always looking for a good fight. Tall, with striking blue eyes and impossibly blond hair, he’s a modern-day Viking warrior. Of course, Violet’s all grown up, too, and she’s ready to surrender to his every command.
Cain knows he’s bad for Violet. His work is dangerous, and his hobbies are downright deadly. As a private mercenary and a mixed martial arts fighter, he could never let such an innocent soul into his world. And yet his most grueling combat training is no match for Violet’s killer curves, hot touch, and suggestive glances. Now all of Cain’s most explosive fantasies are coming true—but once they cross the line between friends and lovers, there’s no turning back.
Thoughts: Sidney Halston is an amazing author and I have absolutely loved every book in this series! While they are all great romantic, MMA themed books, they each manage to hold their own – apart from the series – and have their own distinct tales. In Laid Out, we get the tale of Cain and Violet…a theme that (aside from the MMA) manages to hit a couple more of my favorite reads and/or themes – teenage crushes that manage to withstand the years and best friends who struggle with their desire for more.
Surprisingly enough, these two were just so stubborn it started driving me crazy…LOL I just wanted to smack some sense into them! But no matter – it’s still a great addition to this amazing series! If you haven’t nabbed a book by Sidney Halston, I definitely recommend her – and especially this series if you are a fan of MMA reads!
