Full Contact by Sidney HalstonHow could she have been so stupid? When Jessica Cross decides to give her violently jealous boyfriend—the otherwise influential and charming Dennis Stavros—a second chance, she very nearly becomes a statistic. After weeks of healing from a broken rib and collapsed lung, and with Dennis behind bars, Jessica finally feels ready to come out of hiding. But will she ever be able to take a chance on love again with someone new?
 
Mixed martial arts fighter Slade Martin knows he has a bad reputation. Hell, he's probably earned it. So it won’t be easy to convince beautiful, vulnerable Jessica that she can trust him—that from the moment she walked into his life, she’s been the only one he’s wanted. Powerful and confident, Slade knows he can honor his vow to protect Jessica body and soul. Winning her heart will be another matter . . . but a woman like Jessica is worth the fight.

MY REVIEW:
     This is the case of the eternal playboy with his “Harem” who has become infatuated with a lady bartender.  Slade Martin use to be an MMA fighter but due to some bad blows to his head they have recommended that he not get in the ring anymore.  Now he does personal fitness training and trains other MMA fighters that want to hopefully get the perfect record he had in the ring. 
     When he was still fighting he just happened to see the woman of his dreams at one of his matches.  He saw her with the boyfriend she had mentioned before when he would ask her out.  He had always asked her to dump him and go out with him but she always shot him down.  You see Jessica Cross was hiding her own personal hell from everyone.
     You see Dennis he was a college boyfriend that she moved to Miami with.  He is well off, snooty, and controlling.  All things that never showed until he moved back home to his hometown, Tarpon Springs.  When this up and coming politician takes to manhandling her she’s has enough of his controlling ways.  So, she leaves him getting her own place, working more hours and doing what feels right.
     You see the reason she left in the first place is the one night when Dennis sees her fit to be out in his presence (since it wasn’t with his wealthy friends that he envied most of the time. Plus he was ashamed to bring her around due to her job) well he had been watching her watch Slade to closely as he fought his match.  “He grabbed her by the arm, shook her, and called her a “disrespectful slut.”  She packed and left at that moment she knew it was over.  Enough was enough.  It had happened before but she wasn’t going to stay till it advanced to beating.
     He tried to make up with flowers, cards all apologizing over and over.  She wouldn’t do it.  It was almost the weekend and Jack Daniels, Slade’s friend, would be fighting and she really wanted to see Slade.  She went to see the match.  The minute he saw her he asked her out, but this time she said yes.  She didn’t know it but Dennis was there and heard it all.
     As Slade and Jessica were leaving Dennis pushed Slade catching him of guard and balance.  Dennis digging his fingers into Jessica and pulled her toward his car.  Slade lunged at Dennis to protect Jessica, she yelled at Dennis to stop but instead of him getting ready to hit Slade he was going to hit her.  Slade hit him first, Dennis had Slade arrested.  In order to get Dennis to drop the charges Jessica went to talk to him.  She ended up going back to him.  Here months later Dennis had beat her so bad she ended up in the ICU at the hospital.  Slade found out and took her home to his house on the beach to care for her.  His need to protect her was on high alert as well as this lump in his throat and heart every time he sees, thinks or is around her. Three weeks of recovery and Jess feels the need to return home but she has agreed to a date.
     She is feeling secure about life at first until she finds out that Dennis has been released from jail.  Then they say he has a restraining order against him and it would violate his order from the court causing him to go back to prison.  She gets back into a routine and she starts seeing Slade.  When daisies, which she hates, start showing up in front of her door.  She thinks they are for her next door neighbor who is on vacation and thinks nothing of it.  Until her first encounter with Dennis her life takes a huge scary change.
     I really loved, LOVED all the characters in this book.  The all had their own personality that they brought to this story and made it hum.  This author grabs you right at the beginning and holds you all the way through.  It was a pleasure reading this book.  I give it 5 stars.  Provided by Net Galley.

Misguided Excerpt by: Kathryn Kelly





A biker: Lucas “Mortician” Banks stopped believing in love after a bitter betrayal. As Club Enforcer, the Death Dwellers MC is his home, where no rules exist and brotherhood rule. He never expected to fall for the daughter of K-P Andrews, a biker from the old guard, who is now deceased. Is love enough to survive secrets, brutality, and betrayal?
A beauty: Bailey Andrews was fascinated by the biker from the first moment they met. She seized the opportunity to have his phone number and, somehow, ended up married to him when she accompanied Mortician on a run to Las Vegas. She uncovers the connection between her father and Mortician’s father and the horrible betrayals it led to within the MC. Can she leave the secrets stay buried? Or will she expose them and ruin her marriage to the only man she’ll ever love?
A bet: Smug in his assumption he’d never fall as hard for as woman as his Prez fell for a girl, Mortician put his money where his mouth was and made that bet. With 20Gs on the line and two weeks left before he wins or loses, Mortician has to decide if Bailey and their marriage is more important or saving face and keeping his money. Having only ever seen the destruction of love gone wrong, what will Mortician decide?
A baby: Now, Bailey’s pregnant with his baby and hiding another detrimental secret that she, herself, recently discovered. Will she have to choose between her life and the baby’s? Or will she find a way to save both herself and her child’s?
Warning: This is a brutal tale of worlds colliding—a mega-church with the command to destroy, powerful men with their own agendas, and raw and dirty bikers who will win at all costs. Contains violence, drug use, and excessive foul language.




Excerpt
3:33AM
Every decision for life-changing events happened at 3:33 in the morning.
Or so his father claimed.
To Mortician, though, three thirty three represented something different. Symbolized half of evil and, when put together, created a whole.
Six fucking six six, divided by two, equaled half of fucking Satan. Fitting. Sharper and Charlemagne Banks equaled the demonic fucking duo. One couldn’t work without the other. Therefore, life-changing events always took place at three fucking thirty-three—because Fat & Skinny, Evil & Eviler, Slicker & Slickest, worked together.
Muscles twitching in anger, Mortician hunkered down in the pew, glaring at the overcrowded pulpit and searching the choir stand for Char as Sharper’s voice droned on.
Mortician had spent too many Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in this fucking building. As the membership grew and Sharper’s pockets swelled, their status inched up. And the fucking deceit went out of control.
A flash of silver material caught his eye and Mortician shifted, angling his head to get a better glimpse of her. Char. Still gorgeous with her dusky skin, high cheekbones, and slanted eyes. Bitch couldn’t compare to Bailey, though.
Not wanting to think of Bailey right now because he needed to keep calm to get to her, Mortician gritted his teeth and shifted, scowling at the imperious lift of the brow from the older suited-up motherfucker next to him. Suit and tie bent and whispered something to his wife and she peeked around her husband. She was younger, could have been his daughter, except for the way the man buzzed her lips with his own.
Unable to help himself, Mortician winked at her. Sadity, stuck-up, society bitch, who would open her legs to him in a minute. He tried his best to stay away from married bitches, a certain cop’s wife being the exception.
The nose-far-enough-in-the-air-to-drown-in-a-drizzle motherfucker angled his body toward Mortician in clear warning.
He wanted a dick measuring contest here? In church? Really?
If not for the maid he’d bribed—well, the knife to her throat had helped—he’d be bored as a motherfucker listening to his father’s baritone voice singing Praise Is What I Do.
He needed to act normal. If his dad thought for one minute that Mortician knew he had Bailey, he’d give the order and have her killed.
That thought fucked with his head, so Mortician leaned over to fuck with Mr. Asshole and Mrs. Sadity. “If your dick too limp from all the steroids you must fucking take to get so built, I’ll fuck her for you.”
Anger lit the man’s dark eyes. Finally, some fucking entertainment. But it didn’t ease the ache in Mortician’s chest.
He needed Bailey.
No. He needed to get Bailey safe. He didn’t need her. He’d needed his mother and he’d needed Charlemagne and he’d had his heart ripped out both times.
Give it up, asshole. You need Bailey. You want her. You love her.
So now he was hearing romantic fucking voices in his head? Fuck off. He’d prefer to talk to his dick. Once upon a time, he’d named it Roscoe.
Had he ever told Bailey that his dick’s name was Roscoe? Had he even remembered? There wasn’t much he remembered when he was around Bailey. She consumed him.
Mortician shook a little, almost unable to remain in his seat and pretend she wasn’t somewhere in one of the million rooms of this mega-church.
He wanted to cry. He wanted to scream. But, mostly, he wanted to fucking kill. And he would. Brutally and viciously. Slowly and methodically.
