Title: Full Contact by Sidney Halston
Worth the Fight Book Two
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Length: 288 pages
Sidney Halston returns to steamy Tarpon Springs, Florida, where a hell-raising bad boy prepares to get down and dirty for the woman he loves.
How could she have been so stupid? When Jessica Cross decides to give her violently jealous boyfriend—the otherwise influential and charming Dennis Stavros—a second chance, she very nearly becomes a statistic. After weeks of healing from a broken rib and collapsed lung, and with Dennis behind bars, Jessica finally feels ready to come out of hiding. But will she ever be able to take a chance on love again with someone new?
Mixed martial arts fighter Slade Martin knows he has a bad reputation. Hell, he’s probably earned it. So it won’t be easy to convince beautiful, vulnerable Jessica that she can trust him—that from the moment she walked into his life, she’s been the only one he’s wanted. Powerful and confident, Slade knows he can honor his vow to protect Jessica body and soul. Winning her heart will be another matter . . . but a woman like Jessica is worth the fight.

“Wait here. I want to change.” Jessica said to Slade.
“You look great.”
Jessica looked down at her uniform and guffawed. “Give me a few minutes.” She walked toward the bathroom.
Ten minutes later after brushing her teeth, applying some light make-up, and changing into a black, cotton maxi dress with matching flats, she fluffed up her hair and walked out.
“Don’t you clean up nicely?” Slade whistled. She nudged him playfully on his side with her elbow. “Ready to go?”
She nodded and he took her hand and interlaced his fingers with hers. He didn’t seem to be hiding his affection toward her at all. Slade, who never ever held any woman’s hand or hinted at anything other than the promise of one great fun-filled night, was holding her hand.
She wanted to fist pump, again. Luckily, his grip on her hand prevented her from doing it. Hold it together, dummy.
As soon as they walked out he turned toward her. “Hi”
She smiled. “Hi.”
She smiled. He was so sweet yet so…imposing. She leaned forward and lightly kissed him then pulled away.
“I’ve been waiting hours for that mouth of yours. You look so good, and I’m pretty sure you’re wearing something underneath that dress that’s going to drive me crazy later, so, don’t fuck around with me. I want your mouth.” He demanded. His smile was gone, replaced by heated eyes.
She leaned in a little, but just as she was about to kiss him again, he released her hand, placed his big hands on the sides of her neck and brought his lips down on hers. Her eager mouth opened and her greedy tongue met his. It was a quick kiss but it was a brain-numbing, panty-combusting kiss in the middle of the sidewalk right in front of her job.
When he released her, she swayed. He placed his hands on her shoulder to steady her. He leaned down to look at her face. His blue eyes smoldered. They freakin’ smoldered. That’s it! Now she understood why all the women in town dropped their panties when he spoke with them. His blue eyes were absolutely hypnotic and she was completely under his spell.
Sidney Halston lives her life by one simple rule: “Just do it.” 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.
