    Hot read from Sarah Castille!

    This was a hot read that had a bit of all the things I like – a smoking hot alpha hero that’s a bit broken and has some secrets, a heroine who is strong, even though she has issues she is dealing with, a great cast of supporting characters, and a serious attraction between the H/h that makes it hard for them to stay away from one another. I loved learning more about the fighters of Redemption and seeing them interact, being immersed into the MMA world – especially the underground fight scene, and watching Ray and Sia work through some of the issues from her past. One of the things that I really enjoyed about this book was that there were so many different story threads that were woven together seamlessly to create Ray and Sia’s story. You have a damaged heroine who is trying to exist in the world she has created for herself since suffering a trauma in her past. She must reconcile her fear of the physical side of relationships with her desire to give up control and take on a submissive role. She’s locked away her love of painting and color since it represents her past and now only uses skin as a canvas. You have a hero who must figure out a way to reconcile his past with his future, his need for pain to experience pleasure, and a way to reign in his protective nature and learn to give up some control. As all of things different threads play out, there are also outside influences and people that add even more depth to their story. Although I loved watching Ray go over-the-top caveman at times – loved when he would yell out one word warnings to Dr. Death when he was trying to get close to Sia or when he would be all hyped up after a fight – I did have a hard time with some of his speech being a bit too clipped/caveman-ish at times. It seemed a bit out of character to me and was a bit of a distraction at times. All in all another great MMA sports romance from Sarah Castille – a bit dark, a lot hot, and one that just might find you looking for your nearest gym to find an MMA fighter of your own! I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for an honest review.

    A Love worth fighting for...

    Sia and Ray's story is just full of complications. Sia O'Donnell loves to watch the underground MMA fighting and "The Predator" in particular. Ray Black, is in fact, "The Predator" and he makes Sia all hot and bothered when he fights. Sia has a history that makes her shy away from strong and very physical men. That does not stop the attraction she feels when she looks at Ray. Her overprotective brother used to be a fighter and now he wants her to stay away from this world of dark men. Ray has a history full of pain. He has lost several people who meant the world to him and it keeps him from getting serious. He does not want to lose anyone else or have the pain that goes with it. When Sia needs help, can he be the man she needs? Can he tell her about his shady past? There is a whole gym full of doubters who think they are a mismatch if ever there was. Sia and Ray cannot help how they feel and they make the effort to go forward until they find themselves starting again two steps back. Sia works for a tattoo shop that needs a new place and the owner of the gym they all go to offers them a stay temporarily that may become permanent. Is this the right move for Sia? Will seeing Ray all the time cause more problems or less? Such a good story that just gets into its own groove and I could not put it down! I have not read the earlier books in the Redemption series yet - this book is good enough to stand alone - but I want to read them now! ***This ARC copy was FREE from Netgalley.com and the publisher, for review purposes.

    Great Reading

    Sia O’Donnell is a talented artist who walked away from her passion because of a past experience and chose to express herself as a tattoo artist. She finds inspiration for her tattoo art in the underground MMA circuit and enjoys watching the fighters, but is particularly interested in one – Ray “The Predator” Black. In fact, Sia has been drooling over him for quite some time but her past has left her with PTSD and a need for control and she knows that Ray will be more than she can handle but she can’t resist watching him. Ray Black is a man burdened by the guilt of not being there for his loved ones and has chosen to avoid emotional entanglements to avoid hurt. The no-holds-barred, no rules underground fights he takes part in are his outlet for all the seething emotions in him. Until the day he sees Sia and he sees a chance at a real life, away from the shadows he lives in and Sia is the shining beacon to that life. Unfortunately, his job and the secretive world he operates in make it difficult for him to walk away. FULL CONTACT is exactly what I have come to expect from Sarah Castille – gritty, rough and sexy as hell, with lots of steam, a volatile romance and some suspense thrown in. What’s not to love about an edgy, hot, muscled and tattooed man? Especially one of the dominant and caveman-esque variety. Ray needs to be in control and Sia has a craving to be dominated, a craving Ray recognizes and feeds, even as he helps her work through her fears. And, boy, the sexual heat between Sia and Ray was enough to fog over the screen of my Kindle! However, it’s not just about the sex, hot as it is, with Sia and Ray. They both have to decide if they will let the past hold them down. Sia goes through some amazing growth, gaining confidence and taking back her life bit by bit but Ray takes a bit longer to get there and his secrets put Sia in danger. The push-pull and back and forth in their relationship gave me a bit of whiplash, though. In the end, I was left feeling like Sia and Ray were two halves of a whole that fit together perfectly. My favorite quote: He is the missing part of me. Hard to my soft. Dark to my light. Rough to my smooth. Heart of my heart. *I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.*
