Stacked Up (Worth the Fight #6) by Sidney Halston

ebook, 265 pages
Expected publication: May 31st 2016 by Loveswept

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.

My Thoughts…

My first thought was how sad that the WtF men’s stories are all told and Travis is the last one in this series.      From the very beginning of this series I loved the characters, their significant others, and their stories.     I was invested on them all being okay, happy, and together and now it is done.    I am positive I will continue to read Sidney Halston’s future books and will love them because she is so incredibly talented.   

In Stacked Up we see Travis grow up.   He’s a fun, sexy, mma fighter who doesn’t want to settle down or have kids.    As Penny comes into his life he still wants to have fun and still doesn’t want kids but…. Sarabelle gets to him.    How can a cute little girl not win over the protective side of a MMA fighter?    The answer is the fighter cannot win.    His heart belongs to her from the beginning.     I love  when a tough guy falls for the little girl, even before he falls for the woman.    

Penny and Travis are perfect for each other.    He has the funds, the house, and the love to keep her safe from an over bearing stepfather.   She has the heart, the skills, and the will to win his heart.       She doesn’t expect him to protect her, she doesn’t expect him to fall in love with her, but she deserves all of that and more.  Travis is the best and only guy for the job.

This book and this series are some of the MMA books I have ever read.    The characters are real, the trust and love is real, and the stories are ones that you won’t forget.   I recommend checking out this book. 

Each book is a stand alone.   They can be read out of order.   The characters appear in each other’s stories but each book is its own story.
