There is so much that I loved about Laid Out. I fell head over heels for Violet. She was sweet and sassy and had such a huge capacity for love and forgiveness. Growing up with the father she had wasn't easy and she still managed to be so incredible in spite of that. Surely growing up with the two boys she loved had so much to do with that. The moment of her first kiss was so lovely. Cain was that young man to give her that memory keeping the secret that he was in love with her as he left to go to war. Years later they are still in each others' lives, but it isn't so easy anymore. Cain goes back and forth with Violet so much that he keeps breaking her heart over and over. He agrees to help her by making her more comfortable with the possibility of dating which backfires on them both as they can't avoid their feelings anymore. They are scorching hot together and share some seriously steamy moments together. The moment that makes him realize that he can't hold back from her anymore was heart wrenching. I so loved their story.
I give Laid Out 5 hearts!
About the Book
Perfect for fans of Monica Murphy and Cecy Robson, Sidney Halston’s scorching new MMA romance proves there are no holds barred when it comes to seduction.
Growing up an Army brat, Violet Channing could never meet her dad’s high expectations. But in the eyes of her best friend, she could do no wrong. He even insisted that he should be her first kiss. Now Cain Sorensen is all grown up, hardened by years in special ops and always looking for a good fight. Tall, with striking blue eyes and impossibly blond hair, he’s a modern-day Viking warrior. Of course, Violet’s all grown up, too, and she’s ready to surrender to his every command.
Cain knows he’s bad for Violet. His work is dangerous, and his hobbies are downright deadly. As a private mercenary and a mixed martial arts fighter, he could never let such an innocent soul into his world. And yet his most grueling combat training is no match for Violet’s killer curves, hot touch, and suggestive glances. Now all of Cain’s most explosive fantasies are coming true—but once they cross the line between friends and lovers, there’s no turning back.
Sidney Halston lives her life by one simple rule: “Just do it.” And that’s exactly what she did. At the age of thirty, having never written anything other than a legal brief, she picked up a pen for the first time to pursue her dream of becoming an author. That first stroke sealed the deal, and she fell in love with writing. Halston lives in South Florida with her husband and children.
