    Excellent

    Teenage loves Zach Grayson and Shayla Tanner thought they would be together forever. Him an MMA fighter and her a famous ballerina. While they both accomplished their professional plans they didn't do it together. Zach walked away and Shayla went to NY alone. Now almost eight years later they are reunited at Redemption, a top rated MMA training facility. Can they get beyond the past to see how great their future could be? This was a very well done book with great writing, intriguing characters and a nice pace to the story. It was nice to go back to Redemption again but you can easily read this as a standalone. I highly recommend it.

    Another great read in this series!

    Another great book in the Redemption series that features a second chance romance and two people who need to face their own fears before they can find their way back to one another. I’m a big fan of sports romance and I just love the everything about the Redemption gym – from the gritty and realness that comes through in the writing to the diverse group of characters that are featured, especially as they find themselves becoming more family than just friends. I really loved Shayla and was excited to get to learn her story. She’s had a tough time of things, starting with the way things ended with Zack to the wreck that was her marriage. She’s turned to MMA fighting to learn how to protect herself and she has found a new passion in her fighting. When Zack unexpectedly walks back into her life it’s clear these two have some unfinished business, but until they both face the fears of their past there is little chance that these two could find a future. Like all the stories in this series, the supporting cast of characters adds so much to the book, and I especially loved getting to know the people that Shayla worked with as well. Even though this wasn’t my favorite in the series –I do love second chance romances but I did think Zack was a bit of jerk when he walked out on Shayla –this was a solid read just like all the others. And I love when the women are just as fierce and strong as all of those alpha males they have to deal with! This is one series that is definitely worth reading! I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book I received from the publisher from NetGalley.

    ballerina & fighter

    This is my first book from the series and I can't believe it that I didn't know about this one because I love to read MMA. It is emotionally second chance love story between retired MMA champion Zack and former ballerina now amateur fighter Shayla. After many years Zack and Shayla's path is cross again but everything is different, especially Shayla because of her traumatic years since Zach and her broke up. Zack cannot believe that Shayla is back in his life and he will do anything that she stays in his life for good. The story was solid strong with great character, main and all the others it was great to see Redemption "family" and how they stood together. Also, the scenes between Zack and Shayla were hot. We see two different fights in the book and both were enjoyable to read. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly.

    Strong Hold by Sarah Castille is book Five in the Redemption series. This is the story of Zack Grayson and Shayla Tanner. I have read the previous book but feel this can be a standalone book. Zack and Shayla once had a relationship but Zack walked away from it. While trying to move on Shayla ended up in a very bad relationship which brought her to the next part of her life. Becoming a fighter in her personal life and moving on to be a Top amateur MMA fighter. Shayla is now called "Shilla the Killa" in the fighter world. Zack is a promoter now looking for the next MMA which leads him to Shayla. Time has changed them both and this is their time to get back what them missed if they can let their emotions go. Exciting Read!
