I love me some hot, alpha MMA fighters and few write them better than Sarah Castille. In fact, the first book in the Redemption series, Against the Ropes, was my first ever MMA romance and I have been hooked ever since. (On a side note, we get a few appearances from Torment in here and dear God how I still love that man). Ray, a.k.a. The Predator, fights with a crazed possession in the ring, and well, he is the same way in the bedroom.Both are a thing of beauty. I loved how Ray was often very caveman like in his conversations, which I found both funny and endearing. I was obvious he cared for Sia, but he had some secrets holding him back and I wanted to knock him around a bit so he made up his mind.
My heart broke for Sia and what she had endured. She is not a very confident girl at the start of this book and she has a lot to work through. However we see her slowly growing and becoming stronger throughout and I felt like she came a long way. This was another great read in Sarah's Redemption series and I do hope there are some more to come in the future.
|His voice has a rasp that makes me think about sex. Ripp-off-myclothes, tossmeonthebed, fuckmetillIscream sex.|
|"Wanna watch you come. Scratch me, beautiful girl. Bite me. Show me how much you want it."|
|"I want to makes this world beautiful for you again."|
**I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
|My gaze drifts below his belt, to the bulge in his jeans. He is fully erect, his shaft straining against his fly. A naughty thrill of excitement shoots through my veins. He’s aroused because of me.|
“Um...do you want to take a break before I apply the stencil?”
He shakes his head, then leans forward and sweeps his hand through my hair, letting the strands slide through his fingers. A sigh escapes my lips as delicious sensations sweep through my body. I am on fire. And although I’ve been with men before, I’ve never been immobilized by a single touch.
“So soft.” He runs his hand over my hair again, this time trailing his fingers along my shoulder. His thumb glides over my throat and he curls his hand around my neck. “So fucking delicate.”
I am burning. Consumed by fire. A burst of need drives a whimper up my throat, and I choke it back as his thumb circles the sensitive hollow at the base of my neck. Firm. Unyielding. Dominant. With one squeeze, he could break me. The way I was broken before. The way he broke the butterfly. And yet nothing could tear me away from this moment.
“Sia.” He says my name softly, drawing out the last syllable in a gravelly murmur, almost like a prayer.
My brain fuzzes with lust, and I surrender to the thrill of his touch, the pounding of my pulse in my veins, the desire that has haunted me since I first saw him in the ring. My head falls back, my lips part, and I drown in the depths of an azure sea.
With a low groan, Ray turns sideways in the chair, dropping his legs to the floor. With his hand still cupped around my neck, he pulls me between his legs, the casters on my stool squeaking in gentle protest. I circle my arms around his neck and my breasts rub against his bare chest. The press of his erection against my stomach sends a rush of moisture to my sex.
“Jesus Christ.” His voice drops husky and low. “You’re killing me.”
He leans down and sweeps my hair behind my shoulder, then nuzzles my neck. Sensation sears through my body and I tilt my head to the side to give him better access. So unprofessional. What if Slim comes out? Overcome with the fulfillment of a year’s worth of longing, I can’t bring myself to care.
He feathers kisses over my cheek and I lick my lips in anticipation. This is really happening. He’s going to kiss me again. A real hands-on- the-body Predator kiss.
A bell tinkles behind me. Damn front door. Damn customers who come after hours. I’m not turning around. I want my kiss.
Ray glances up and stiffens. “Holy shit.”
