Full Contact by Sidney Halston

I’ve read a few books in this series, and I have liked every one of them. Although I read this one out of order, it still worked for me. I love these MMA fighters, and the women in this series, so for me this was pretty much a sure thing when it came to me liking the book. So I’m gonna start with Jessica, and first let me start by saying I am horrible with names, like so horrible with names, I have a decade long history of calling all of my best friend’s girlfriends Jessica (and none of them have been named Jessica, I’m horrible I know). Anyway for the first couple of chapters every time I read Jessica’s name I kind of mentally had to shake myself, but after a while I started to really like her and the character cemented itself in my head. I think what stands out to me the most about her and about this book frankly is how much I found myself laughing. Jessica and Slade had this great dynamic between them, and there was more than one scene in the book where I found myself laughing out loud (especially the scenes with Drogo and the date with the guy who wouldn’t stop talking about her womanly time, seriously read it you will laugh out loud too).

I like military romances and I like MMA romances, so this was the perfect mix for me. I was looking forward to this book for more than those reason though, I love romances where the people involved have known each other since they were young, and so when I read that the book is about Cain, Violet, and Jeremy who grew up as friends together and then two of them ended up together. I liked Violet from early on in the book, Violet has gone through so much. She was engaged to Jeremy when he passed away while serving overseas, and to make it even worse their childhood friend basically disappears after Jeremy dies. I can’t imagine haven’t to live through the death of someone you are planning to marry. So when Violet and Cain end up living in the same place and knowing the same people, well needless to say it results in a lot more together time. Violet really doesn’t understand why Cain acts the way he does towards her, and you can tell she wants that relationship back. She has always had an attraction to him, but it’s more than that, they have such a history that it makes perfect sense that she would want more of him in her life. Granted the whole getting Cain to help her be better at dating, well that was inspired, and worked for me. There was some really fun scenes because of this set up. Cain was interesting, I mean […]
