REVIEW: Against the Cage by Sidney Halston


For Chrissy Martin, returning to her Florida hometown always seems to bring bad luck. The day starts with a breakup text, followed by a jailhouse phone call from her troublemaker brother. Now a routine traffic stop has ended with her accidentally punching an officer . . . in a delicate place. Then Chrissy realizes that the hot cop on the receiving end of her right hook is none other than the man from her teenage fantasies.

Jack Daniels knows how to take a hit. After all, when he’s not chasing reckless drivers, he’s kicking ass in a mixed martial arts ring. So what takes his breath away isn’t the low blow, but the woman who dealt it: a gorgeous knockout with legs Jack wouldn’t mind being pinned under—who just so happens to be his best friend’s nerdy little sister, all grown up. Soon their instant chemistry leads to a sizzling affair, but Jack and Chrissy are fighting an uphill battle if they want to make love last beyond the final bell.

The couple in this book had great chemistry. I liked them a lot as individuals and as a couple. They were great fun, especially with Drogo (I adored him!). The points of view start off being separate, but they start to sort of mush together at some point, but are still easily read and understood. The plot was a little over dramatic on occasion and very predictable, but overall good. I enjoyed the story and look forward to more!

Bottom Line:

Against the Cage is a sexy, compelling story with great characters. Don’t miss this fun story that starts off a new series that’s sure to keep you entertained!
