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 think by now most of y’all know I’m a series whore. Even if the books don’t need to be read in order (which in the case for this series) it doesn’t matter I want them all. I know MMA fighters are sexy, as long as you ignore the cauliflower ears, but I didn’t know that being in a ring could be so freaking hot! Jake is trying to take things slowly with Amanda. He wants her to fully commit and he’s willing to wait to make it happen. So when the tension between them finally explodes it turns the ring into an inferno! There were several times I found the book a bit teenage angsty for my taste but overall I really enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to more in this series and more from Ms. Castille!
