A Publishers Weekly Best Summer Book

"You have to go. I won't be able to control myself. I've wanted you so bad for so long and after I've been in the cage...I can't think straight." He gives a guttural groan and his fist clenches on my hip.

Primitive. Primal. His need speaks to me. I tighten my grip on his neck and rock up to kiss him.

Overview

A Publishers Weekly Best Summer Book

"You have to go. I won't be able to control myself. I've wanted you so bad for so long and after I've been in the cage...I can't think straight." He gives a guttural groan and his fist clenches on my hip.

Primitive. Primal. His need speaks to me. I tighten my grip on his neck and rock up to kiss him. He takes over. His kiss is hard and demanding.

"Mine." His voice is raw, savage and for a moment I truly believe he may lose control.

He rules in the ring
Two years ago, Jake and Amanda were going hot and heavy. But when Jake wanted more, Amanda walked away. Jake immersed himself in mixed martial arts, living life on the edge. But that didn't dull the pain of Amanda's rejection-until a chance encounter throws them together.

A high-powered lawyer, Amanda was a no-strings-attached kind of girl. But two years after her breakup with Jake, she still hasn't found anyone who gets her heart pumping the way he did. And then he shows up in her boardroom, hot as sin and needing help...

But can he rule her heart?
Jake is darker, sexier, and impossible to resist. As their chemistry builds, Amanda's not sure if she can stay in control, or if she's finally willing to let him claim her body and soul.

★ 05/05/2014
Castille’s follow-up to the excellent Against the Ropes doesn’t pull its punches. Oakland’s Redemption fight club is now a legalized mixed martial arts training center. Fighter Jake misses his ex-lover Amanda and wants to start over, this time with some substance behind the sex. He reintroduces Amanda to Redemption, encouraging her to train with the colorful cast of friends while teaching her how to rely on people other than herself. Amanda is entirely capable of taking on a wide variety of enemies, from miscreants on the street to blackmailing harassers from her former law firm, but Jake hopes to show her that there’s value in partnership and vulnerability. Like real lovers, Jake and Amanda need to talk, fight, and have hot make-up sex to navigate their complicated relationship. Readers will be in their corner as they battle for each other. (July)
From the Publisher
"Castille's follow-up to the excellent Against the Ropes doesn't pull its punches. Readers will be in their corner as they battle for each other." - Publishers Weekly

"There's plenty to keep readers coming back for more..." - RT Book Reviews

"Sometimes, what makes romances such a success is their willingness to confront reality and embrace fairytales, and Sarah Castille is a master of these kinds of romantic fantasies. Her hero is at once gentle, insightful, and at the same time a thoroughly dominant alpha who can fulfill his heroine's every desire, both physical and emotional. Because of their growing bond, the courage and self-assurance they develop, all other aspects of their life begin to prosper, as well. The result is a story that is fulfilling on a number of levels and offers an emotional, but ultimately rewarding journey for both of the main characters. This is quite a fitting follow up to this gritty, sizzling series, and I have no doubt that Sarah Castille is only going to keep giving readers precisely what they crave as this series continues to unfold. I, for one, can't wait for book three!
