In Sidney Halston’s latest sizzling MMA romance, a former title contender turns the tables on his knockout trainer with a lesson in seduction.
Once one of the most sought-after names on the mixed martial arts circuit, Antonio “Scarface” Marino watched his career go down for the count as he chased skirts and made tabloid headlines. Now he’s finally making a comeback, and it’s all thanks to Francesca Silva, a Brazilian bombshell as tough as any of her fighters. But who’s the real Francesca: the trash-talking trainer who rides him hard, or the vulnerable woman who blushes at his touch?
Francesca went to the mat to sign Tony because she believes he still has the potential to bring big success to her gym—if she can keep his head in the cage and out of her personal life. After a short-lived marriage soured her on love, a one-night stand is all she can handle. Now Tony’s kisses are stirring up complicated feelings—especially when he agrees to face her ex in the ring. Francesca’s used to freezing guys out. But Tony’s tempting her to give in to the heat.

I ask you...What is hotter than a sexy MMA fighter???? My answer...not a hell of a lot lol. I love these guys who fight like warriors and beasts but love so fiercely and possessively. Granted Francesca is no shrinking violet herself and that made me even more excited while reading this. Now don't get me wrong, there is something sexy about a man protecting his woman. But a woman who can protect herself is hot too ya know. I enjoyed getting to know the characters by hearing their stories. I also love how hot their chemistry is...like off the charts lol.
Overall a very sensual read with great characters and their friends. I'm rating this one in at four hearts. I'd love to read more by this author.
