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. Jake is dark, sexy, 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.

"Castille's follow-up to the excellent Against the Ropes doesn't pull its punches." (Publishers Weekly Starred Review)
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
I love Sarah's writing style, she defiantly has the ability to draw you into the story and hold you there till the very end... :)
Jake and Amanda make for a steamy read. Jake is an alpha male 100% and makes his girl come undone (and not just in the bedroom) Sarah’s writing flows so beautifully that you are disappointed when the book is over. The suspense in this story had me on the edge of my seat. I kept waiting for the next problem to arise and destroy the budding relationship...
We get all the previous secondary characters from book one entwined into this story and i adored how they are so fun loving and fierce in their love for family/friends. I loved Penny and hope for her happy ending... Yummy Ray, what can I say about him other than I need his happy ending as well. I even liked Drake. I cannot wait to read the next book and find out who are the main characters and what kind of trouble they can get into.... Hurry please bring on the next....:)
What a great follow up book and what a great drama filled love story.... I couldn't stop listening as the train wreck of Jake and Amanda's relationship picks up again two years later and the sexual tension and sizzling chemistry is still there between them but this time Jake wants more from Amanda.
Gorgeous Alpha Jake was so patient, thoughtful, kind, sexy, protective and loving when it came to Amanda but he just couldn't break down her lifelong defences no matter how hard, and what, he tried. Apart from the steamy romance, the plot was also about a legal battle with Amanda's ex employers but it was also packed full of hot MMA fighters and entertaining secondary characters most of whom we met in book 1 and it was nice to catch up with Makayla and Torment.
Worth a credit? Sarah Castille certainly knows just how to write about and describe a hot testosterone filled virtual Hero for me to drool over and there was plenty of excitement, angst, drama, sex, romance, fun, frustration and it all added up to a GREAT listen.... and YES it was so worth the credit.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This was so not on the same level as book 1, but it was still a great book. I like it... The smexy time was good...but like I said, not on the same level as book 1. This story is like 2yrs later from book 1, and the (h) is a lawyer being blackmailed by her boss after he tried to seduce her. In comes Jake or the (H)... and when these two get back together... of course sparks begin to fly. We get gym action, and whole lot of conversation...but it's still missing that something.. that book 1 had.. I hope book 3 raises the bar back up!
Narration was good... actually if the narration wasn't as good as it was... I think this book would have been a book 2 filler flop!
Good credit or sale.. Maybe not a buy...
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
As much as I enjoyed the 1st book in the Redemption series I loved this book. I laughed so often and Lucy Rivers brought this story to life just as she did in the 1st book. This was worth the wait and purchase.
