Below the Belt
Worth the Fight # 3
By: Sidney Halston
Releasing February 10th, 2015

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 like the intensity of the Tony – he’s one hot alpha. He has his issues; the press is always hounding him, posting his troubles on the front page - making him the ultimate bad boy of the ring. It caused a lot of mishaps in his career. Now someone is taking a chance on him – the sexy Brazilian, Francesca Silva who is as complex as him.

Francesca took a chance on Tony because she believes in him. She believes he will bring her gym a big success. Now if he can only turn his ways around and make him focus on training rather than chasing skirts, especially hers. If you think Tony has issues, wait until you hear hers – starting from her short-lived marriage to freezing guys out.

Tony has an amazing fighting spirit – both in the ring and with Francesca. He refused to give up fight. He was willing to do anything for both. He can be stubborn at times and may cause a lot of troubles, but when it comes to emotions – he knows what he wants and is willing to do anything to have it. Problem is: he’s willing to take the risk, but is she?

It’s a battle of wits and wills for love. He was pushing her, and she was fighting back – I was wondering if he will ever stop. I like his family – the girls have these strong personalities and they have a strong-tied relationship. He was way different with his family than with anyone else. And nothing beats a hot, family man.

If you like strong characters, wickedly sexy uber-hot scenes, alpha males and one heck of romance – this one is for you.

Sidney Halston lives her life with 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. 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, among four other novels currently in the works, including the sequel to 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.
