Worth the Fight #6
By: Sidney Halston
Releasing May 30, 2016
Opposites attract in this seductive novel from the author of Against the Cage (“Funny, steamy, scorching.”—Toni Aleo), with a chiseled MMA fighter falling for a single mom who could use a real man in her corner.
Working two jobs to support her infant daughter is harder than anything Penny Richards has ever done, but it sure beats living under the rules of her stepfather, a television preacher who demands a picture-perfect family. And if Penny hadn’t struck out on her own, she never would have met Travis Calhoun. The intensely physical heavyweight brawler has a way of drawing out her wild side. But Travis lives fast, with no responsibilities—and that just isn’t for Penny.
Most of the women in Travis’s circle wear tight clothes, high heels, and tons of makeup—not pearls or plaid headbands. But once he works past Penny’s inhibitions, Travis discovers a kindred spirit who longs to trust someone with her body, and her secrets. Still, Travis can’t help but wonder if this rich girl is just slumming it before she returns to her privileged life. Now it’s up to Penny to prove that she wants her hard-edged, hard-loving fighter just the way he is.
“Travis, I’d like you to meet Sarabelle.”
“Belle.” The little girl said.
“Belle, excuse me.” Penny laughed. “Travis, this is Belle. Belle this is my friend Travis.”
The little girl hid in her mother’s neck. “She’s very shy.”
“”S’okay, I’m not.” He moved closer to Belle. “Hey kid, I’m Travis. Who’s this?” He asked, pointing to the tattered bear she held.
“Bubba.” She mumbled into her mother’s neck.
“Bubba the bear. I like that.” Belle did that same move her mother did, shook her head slightly to take her bangs out of her eyes, but in this case it was one fat blonde curl. Then she looked up, and big blue eyes stared back at him. Blue eyes that looked almost identical to his and Jamie Lynn’s. Her soft milky skin and chubby cheeks, and shy smile took him aback. “Twavis.” She whispered, then hid her face again.
His feelings were scattered all over the place as he walked back his car. What the hell was he getting himself into?
a sad sad day has come … Worth The FIght has come to an end 🙁 But what a spectacular way to go!
I’ve read this series from the beginning and it has never disappointed 🙂 #TRUST
Sidney Halston has a style of writing that will draw you into the story and make you feel a part of it. Because when she spins a tale, she makes it not only relatable in character, but also in language. Her books are easy to read and the banter between characters mirrors that of the reader bantering with friends and lovers. It’s every day speech and it’s refreshing. And she did it perfectly with Penny and Travis!
The way Penny and Travis connected was also very well done. From their basic friendship to their sexual chemistry and also to what they believe or not believe. Penny comes from a very religious background filled with faith … Travis does not. But there’s no judgement or fear between them … there’s only acceptance and understanding. Kudos to Sidney for writing this aspect of the story this way!
The journey of Penny and Travis to HEA was not easy, but when is it ever LOL It does have bumps and hurdles but it really was beautiful. Because of Travis and Penny grew from it and it was just plain **happy sigh**

USA Today bestselling author, Sidney Halston lives her life with one simple rule: “Just Do It”–Nike. And that’s exactly what she did.
After working hard as an attorney, Sidney picked up a pen for the first time at thirty years old to begin her dream of writing. Having never written anything other than very exciting legal briefs, she found an outlet for her imaginative, romantic side and wrote Seeing Red. That first pen stroke sealed the deal, and she fell in love with writing. Sidney lives in South Florida with her husband and children. She loves her family above all else, and reading follows a close second. When she’s not writing, you can find her reading and reading and reading. She’s a reader first and a writer second. When she’s not writing or reading, her life is complete and utter chaos, trying to balance family life with work and writing (and reading). But she wouldn’t have it any other way.
