Opposites attract in this seductive novel from the author of Against the Cage (“Funny, steamy, scorching.”—Toni Aleo), with a chiseled MMA fighter falling for a single mom who could use a real man in her corner.
Working two jobs to support her infant daughter is harder than anything Penny Richards has ever done, but it sure beats living under the rules of her stepfather, a television preacher who demands a picture-perfect family. And if Penny hadn’t struck out on her own, she never would have met Travis Calhoun. The intensely physical heavyweight brawler has a way of drawing out her wild side. But Travis lives fast, with no responsibilities—and that just isn’t for Penny.
Most of the women in Travis’s circle wear tight clothes, high heels, and tons of makeup—not pearls or plaid headbands. But once he works past Penny’s inhibitions, Travis discovers a kindred spirit who longs to trust someone with her body, and her secrets. Still, Travis can’t help but wonder if this rich girl is just slumming it before she returns to her privileged life. Now it’s up to Penny to prove that she wants her hard-edged, hard-loving fighter just the way he is.

My Review Updated

In Stacked Up we have a story of a young woman that grew up in a strong religious environment. But when she finds herself pregnant at eighteen, to escape her horrid step father and his cruel scheme, she flees so she can raise her baby on her own. Its been a year, working multiple jobs just to make ends meet. Then things heat up between herself and Tanner, who is a MMA fighter. Their relationship has always been on a mere friendship level until now. Tanner loves his single life, but he is drawn to Penny who is sweet and innocent. Not his typical woman—she intrigues him. But then when he finds out that she has a one year old daughter, Tanner has to rethink his priorities. He doesn’t care much for kids at all. He doesn’t want to settle. But he is drawn to Penny and her little girl in ways he can’t explain. But when Penny’s past come back and threatens to take her daughter away, Tanner steps in. I really liked this book quite a bit, it was my first book from this author, and it was a cute story. I do love seeing a bit of a bad boy with a woman that is religious. Especially since Tanner doesn’t understand her beliefs in many ways—but she educates him. I liked that she wasn’t judgmental at all, she accepted Tanner for who he is. It was a great balance these two find with each other. And I was intrigued by the other side characters that have books of their own in this series, and I want to pick up book one because these men and women are awesome!! If you like sports romance especially some sexy MMA fighters—Halston is a author to pick up.

About Sidney Halston

USA Today bestselling author, Sidney Halston lives her life with one simple rule: “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
