Review: In Your Corner by Sarah Castille
"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.
I like how Sarah Castille tells the story of Amanda and Jake's on again off again very sexy love affair. The tremendous passion between the two is breathtaking and their fear of commitment is heartbreaking. There are lots other stories going on about their friends and coworkers that are fun to read and show how they support and try very hard to bring Amanda and Jake together for good. The descriptions of the fights and the fight club make you feel like you are right there with them.
I really liked when Amanda met Jake again after several years apart and realized that she still loved him, but was afraid of his and her truly being able to commit to each other and have a future. When Amanda decided to quit her job and then sue her former boss for sexual discrimination, I wanted to stand up and shout "you go girl!" I never was interested in fight clubs but sure enjoyed reading the interaction and the commitment the fighters had and also how they were very protective of people especially the women.
