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.

This is the sixth and final book in the fabulous Worth the Fight series, and it features and MMA fighter Travis Calhoun and bartender Penny Richards. She's in hiding from her stepfather because having a baby out of wedlock is a HUGE no no for the daughter of a famous evangelical tv personality. For a year she's been in Tarpon Springs, FL trying to resist the charming MMA fighter. Travis is a part of a reality TV series, featuring MMA fighters and she was photographed kissing him, which alerted EVERYONE as to her whereabouts. This is where the chaos begins.
I understand why he never wanted kids. It really breaks my heart but seeing him with Belle is just too cute for words. Travis and Penny are just two people, that if they could get over all their hangups, what they shared would be insanely beautiful...and sexy. Let's not forget how HOT they are together!
I've loved every one of the books in this series and I'm sad to see it end. Watching all these alpha men go after the women that are destined to be theirs has been fun and exciting! Bravo Sidney Halston! Great story lines with loyal and loving characters.
First book by this author and I'll surely be back for more!
First book by this author and I'll surely be back for more! While this was book #6 in the Worth the Fight series, I read it as a stand alone. Growing up in a very sheltered, overbearing religious household, Penny decides that for the sake of her newborn daughter she is leaving.... Finding herself working two jobs to take care of her daughter and hiding the secret crush she has on the hot MMA fighter, Travis. Travis is the smooth talking cowboy that everyone loves and eventually he wears Penny down. This book was sweet, full of drama, and hot as hell. Highly recommended and I'll surely be going back to read the earlier books in the series!!!
I love the book but there's just one thing I don't like about it. Travis calls her penny momma way too much. It's kind of annoying to me. Other than that I like it a lot
