Against the Cage - Sidney Halston
I enjoyed Against the Cage. It is a sweet, touching story of past connections, emotional trauma, guilt, and need. The story has angst and heartbreaking moments but is written with humor and lots of snarkyness from the heroine.
Chrissy Martin left her hometown behind with the intent of not returning anytime soon. Well, you know what they say about good intentions. She ends up back home in Tarpon Springs, Florida due to a phone call from her brother.
During her visit she is pulled over by a cop that she has known most of her life. Jack Daniels cannot believe the girl he once known has turned into a hot sexy woman. He is totally smitten with her and is willing to do just about anything to convince her that she needs him.
Jack is a possessive male and pretty much thinks Chrissy needs to follow his directions. But he also has one hot sweet, soft side to him. Such a sweetie. Chrissy is independent, snarky, and never fails to let Jack and everyone else know, exactly what she thinks.
This is a story of love, overcoming preconceived notions, working through judgmental thoughts, and through past pain. It has somewhat of a dark storyline but was well balanced with some humor included.
There is a whole lot more to this story but I don’t want to give away any spoilers. Read it, I think you will enjoy it.
