    It was just okay. I wouldn't read it again and wouldn't recommend this book to anyone. It didn't seem even slightly realistic. Which of course it isn't, but it was more annoying, frustrating, and aggravating. I kept thinking of the heroine's character, there is no way anyone could be that naïve. I tried to finish it but gave up. I gave it 2 stars because I actually liked the concept of the book, the delivery was just, NO.

    This is a great MMA read. I'm an MMA junkie, so I love the books about it. If you don't know MMA, Sarah Castille does explain the moves and tells what the fighter is doing.This is the first book in the Redemption series. This is my second time reading this and I guess I forgot to leave a review the first time. I decided to reread so I could catch up on this series. I did rate it 5 stars the first time, and that rating is staying.Makayla is at a point in her life where she's kind of stuck. She owes student loan bills to a collection agency, but doesn't make enough to pay the amount they want. Been there done that. Luckily mine weren't jerks like hers were. She needs another job. Thanks to Amanda, her best friend, she can sell tickets for underground MMA fights. Which is funny for someone that doesn't like violence, at all.She has her reasons, and I understand completely.Torment owns Redemption, he's a fighter. But there's more to him than that. I won't go into details because you need to read this book.Max (Torment) is controlling. It's in a protective way. It may come across as him just being a jerk, but once you get his story, you'll understand.I loved how Makayla didn't back down from him. She stood up to him. She actually learns a lot about herself and does have a lot of growth in this story. She has a huge heart, that's for sure.I can't wait to read the others in this series.

    For me, there was just too much happening in this book and it unraveled a bit leading me to skim by the end. It had a really good premise and if we had stayed within the blurb - Makayla falling for the MMA fighter, who tempts her to go outside the boundaries - I would have enjoyed it more. But the MMA fighter turns out to be a secretive CEO\millionaire with a completely different life. We also have a love triangle with the sexy doctor at work, Makayla's debts and the debt collectors harassing her, a psycho supervisor, some mystery after an attack, a kidnapping, and enough of an introduction to the best friend and her men. That is a lot to wade through!On the positive side, she is very good at writing chemistry and Makayla and Torment \Max are sizzling. She can also write a super hot sex scene. However it all got weighed down by too many plotlines. Fingers crossed for book two (Amanda, the BFF, and Jake).

    I don't like giving books low ratings because I know the author poured their heart & soul into writing it. Buuuttt... I really didn't care much for this book. I don't have an issue with MMA romance, I actually quite like them, but I've read far better ones. My issues: 1) Makayla can't stomach violence. Ok I can see not wanting to see your man hurt but come on. She's wants to be a paramedic, and although paramedics may nit witness violence on the regular, they deal with the after effects. 2) The debt collection. Too much time was dedicated to this issue. 3) Pinkaluscious. I don't understand why Torment allowed her to be around. Especially after what she did to Makayla. And Pinkaluscious wasn't death with properly in the end. Makayla grew enough back bone to fight off the Pulverizer but couldn't put that pink bitch in her place?? 3) I didn't have a connection with the characters. I like NO ONE in this book. No. One.

    Holy wet panties batman! This book was awesome! I loved everything about this book. From the UBER overprotective alpha to the heroine that understood his need to hover, but still did what she wanted anyway! Oh and the sex, it was pantylishous! So good....and the lead up to the sex....haaawwwwtttt.So what's it about? Yeah...right...well - there's this under ground fight club *tingle* and this hot fighter that is making his way through the other fighters to be the champ *tingle*. He owns/runs his underground gym/fight club and trains his and other fighters *tingle/ZING*. He happens to meet up with our heroine who is at his club one night with her fun flirty friend to hand out tickets. Her friend is there with her boy toy of the moment and is doing him a favor. Our heroine just so happens to be trained as an EMT and something else that means she knows first aid above and beyond the normal person. So BAMN! He has a first aid doc on call now.Let's stop right here shall we? First of all, I love that the author worked these two into working together and not in the stereotypical "I'm your naught assistant way". I love when my couple works together, but not "together-together". Make sense?So these two start working together and immediately our alpha knows she's "the one". It takes off from there and leads to p-ss-ng contests, damsel in distress, jealousy, fighting, blood, crazyness and total alpha control*zing/tingle/flood gates open to panties*.Loved it, can't wait for Amanda & Jake's turn....and I didn't think I'd say this at the beginning, but I also hope that Doc Drake gets a book too....I'm interested to know what you do exactly with a plastic whale.
