"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.
Publishers Weekly Best Summer Reads (Romance) 2014 and starred review!
Bad body. Don’t think about sex. Fires. Insurance companies. Wills. Documents.
But how can I not think about sex when Rampage is throwing words around like dominant, submission, mount and pound? What it would be like to have Jake show me the moves, his body mounting me, his voice driving me to submission. My cheeks flush and I turn my head so Drake doesn’t see. Rampage is demonstrating a rear naked choke to one of the classmates. What I wouldn’t give for a rear naked.
So when the chance came to read the second book in this series, I pretty much latched on at the first moment. I reviewed “Against the Ropes“, the first book in the Redemption series last year (you can read that review here ) and loved it. This book is no let down from there — Ms Castille still writes with wit, eroticism and enough bite that you ache for the characters, and want to hug them and punch them at the same time — it’s real. And for me, someone not all that into MMA fighting, it still draws me in every time and I find myself looking for more and more romance books dealing with this.
I’m not going to sum up the book because the description already does a very good job of it, but I will say that this had me laughing out loud, moaning along with Amanda and wishing I could meet all the guys of Redemption — read the books and you’ll understand why I say this. The story line belongs to Amanda and Jake, but all the supporting characters make it that much more rich and wonderful to read. The guys are ones I’d love to have at my back.
I’m REALLY hoping I get to read more at some point, and I’m hoping I get to read the taming of Doctor Drake.
Get the book when it comes out on July 1st. Buy the book. Read the book. Love the book.
