“Much like the previous book, Below the Belt, Halston delivered a good storyline.”
~ Under the Covers

Violet, Cain, and Jeremy have been childhood friends but since Jeremy had passed away, their friendship have never been the same. Sure, they kept in touch but there was always some kind of gap. This time, after coming back from a dangerous mission, Cain can’t stay away from Violet any longer. As much as he wants to deny his feelings and avoid the attraction between them, he can’t. And if he doesn’t act quickly, he can lose her forever.

I enjoyed Sidney Halston’s fourth installment of Worth the Fight series. Much like the previous book, Below the Belt, Halston delivered a good storyline. And wow, Ms. Halston knows how to make a hot read. With a mixture of military, MMA, tattoos and prince albert, it’s too hard to say otherwise. Also, I have to mention that Laid Out has the Sweetest First Kiss I’ve read in a long while.

Unfortunately, this book is not my fave. I’m afraid the angst was a bit much for my liking. Cain kept sending mixed signals and the games he played was a bit much. I didn’t like that guilt controlled the outcome of their friendship or relationship. I do have to admit that the game they played was a perfect build up and a good foreplay.

Overall story was good and I liked Ms. Halston’s writing. So, yes, I will continue to read this series though I’m hoping for a little less angst for the next book.

About Sidney Halston

USA Today bestselling author, Sidney Halston lives her life by one simple rule: “The secret of getting ahead is getting started” (Mark Twain). Or even simpler: “Just do it” (Nike). And that’s exactly what she did. At the age of thirty, having never written anything other than a legal brief, she picked 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.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.

Thank you for reading & reviewing!


Thanks Angela for the review


I don’t like when guilt has that effect on a relationship. This happened in another series and every time there is a scene with this couple I just skip it…the relationship has a weak foundation because of that guilt
