In Your Corner

In Your Corner (Redemption #2) by Sarah Castille

 

synopsis_thumb2

“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.

4 out of 5 stars

I thought this was a pretty fantastic story! It started out with a bit of tension and drama and I was immediately invested.

Jake and Amanda have a passionate and intense relationship. They have a major pull to one another, almost a longing, but a lot of built up animosity too. Jake is demanding but caring and I liked Amanda's dry humor and spunk. Jake holding back while waiting for Amanda to get a clue about certain things had me on edge. I really liked them both but occasionally got frustrated because of their lack of communication. They have major heat together and their sexy times were pretty combustible (and a bit adventurous). I liked learning about their past history but I really wish it would have been more detailed.

I liked the other fighters immensely and enjoyed Ray and Penny a lot. I was imagining hook ups in my head between a few people since things were hinted at but it never really went anywhere. Maybe for another book? I hope so. All the characters are really intriguing. There were a few side stories involved that were integrated into the story well - the lawsuits, Amanda’s parents, Dr. Drake – and they provided a nice amount of drama but they weren't incredibly detailed and wrapped up easily. 

Overall the story moved along nicely but Jake and Amanda's back and forth got a little old. I was definitely ready for their relationship to get there. I was thrilled when it finally happened.

There is a good balance between the drama, lighter moments, and the sexy times. I really liked the ending and Jake is as sweet as he is demanding and gave me a nice awww moment. Overall I thought this was a great story filled with emotion, intensity and hotness. A definite page turner!
