"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 love to read Fighter Romances. The hero is always so out of control, protective, and sexy as hell, and Jake was no exception. My problem through most of this was the heroine, Amanda. She came off extremely whiny and a little annoying. It’s no wonder Jake wanted to go slow the second time around. In Your Corner is a story about a second chance at love. It’s about finding yourself and figuring out who you want to be in the end. Will you follow your head or your heart? 

 ❝This is what I need, baby. I want all of you. I won’t settle for anything less, and until you can give that to me, this is as far as I’m willing to go and as close as I’m willing to get.❞

In Your Corner can be read as a standalone. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading book 1 in the Redemption Series, but after reading this one, I will quickly remedy that. This was an all round great romance. Sarah Castille didn’t miss a beat and gave her readers exactly what they expect and want from her…a solid, scorching romance, with a suspense factor that will keep you on your toes. Even though these two characters were introduced in Against the Ropes, Ms. Castille does an amazing job filling us in on their story, so you don’t feel like you are missing a thing. 

 ❝I want you to need me with every breath in your body. I want to turn around a know I will always see you in my corner. I want you to want me the way I want you. Body, heart, and soul.❞

Satisfying, steamy, and suspenseful, Sarah Castille takes us on a powerful journey of struggle, hope, and redemption. Being a fan of Sarah’s Legal Heat Series, I had no doubt that this book would deliver. With a well written plot and swoon-worthy characters, there is no doubt that this MMA Romance will disappoint. 


In Your Corner is part of a series, but it can be read as a standalone, but don’t miss out on Against The Ropes, Book 1 in the Redemption Series!
