I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I love a good MMA romance. Of course, out of all these subgenres, I would still say that my favorite would be MC romance, but MMA romance is a close second. I’d pick an MMA romance over the billionaire or rock star romance any day. That’s how much I enjoy MMA romance. There’s just something about the rawness and the grit of mixed martial artists that makes a book realistic. There is no glamour, no fancy talk, no expensive shopping sprees and all that.

Anyway, this fourth book in Sidney Halston’s Worth The Fight series is a solid, enjoyable romance novel that will entertain any reader. If you’ve followed this series, then I’m sure you’ve been anticipating Cain’s book. You won’t be disappointed at all. Laid Out was a great way to tell Cain’s story as well as his love story with Violet. If this is your first book in the series, don’t worry because you actually don’t have to read the previous books. You can still appreciate and enjoy this book on its own.

Not to the least fun part, while I don’t actually have complaints about the book and the technicality of how it was written, I have to honestly say that the general plot was actually too simple. I think because of that, there were instances when the book became a bit dragging. I still liked the book, but I could have liked it more if it had a faster pacing. Anyway, it’s still a really good book, and I have no regrets with it.
