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.

A real surprise
I chose this as it was on my recommended list. Not an author that I had heard of but I liked the blurb. Must say a pretty good story that did not have any dull bits. Chrissy is likeable enough & Jack is delicious. A bit corny at times but not cringe worthy: more like just plain sweet. Must say though that Chrissy certainly didn't act like any doctor I have ever worked with & why oh why are all the females in these books drop dead gorgeous. There must be a place out there in bookland that real women inhabit!
Well read & not annoying. Worth listening to.

Against the Cage
There is something about Sidney Halston's writing that just clicks with me. She introduces real characters with real flaws and puts them in real situations that I can grow from reading about and implement these lessons into my own life. Sidney Halston's books aren't just merely entertaining (however they really are entertaining), they are poignant and meaningful.
Against the Cage is no different. Chrissy has experienced loss and suffers from a lot of guilt inflicted by her brother. She spends a lot of time and mind space trying to make things right between the 2 and it's because of this that she is back in her hometown and trying to make things right before getting back to her regularly scheduled life. This is when she reconnects with someone from her childhood.
My favorite character was Chrissy. Not only is she super funny, she is also very resilient and tough. I loved her in this book.
Although I have read this book, when I saw it in Audible and wanted to revisit this story through narration.
Devra Woodward was the perfect narrator for the job.

3.5 STARS - IT WAS GOOD BUT THAT'S IT
This was a good easy-going listen that had a bit of everything... light humor, angst between siblings, passion and romance between old friends, drama as the heroine is conflicted and in turmoil with her emotions which results in a traumatic event and there's some dirty talk which leads to some lack lustre sex.
It was all enjoyable and entertaining but I don't think I connected with the heroine because there was no pleasing her and her constant disapproval of what Jack (the sexy hero) and Slade (her brother) were doing got boring. There were good one liners and playful banter, Jack and Slade were both likeable characters and a really dynamic one that stood out was Drogo Jack's unsociable but very funny tiny little dog. But this is more an anti MMA listen than the norm.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's an ok narrator. This wasn't what I was expecting, no bad boys, however it was an enjoyable listen so I guess it's creditworthy.
