Fighting Attraction - Sarah Castille

This is book #4, in the Redemption series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding and enjoyment, I recommend reading this great series in order.

Jack AKA Rampage is the hottest fighter Penny can see.  She sees quote a lot, actually.  She sees the real him, the one behind the man everyone thinks he is.  She is his greatest friend, and yet she can also be his greatest weakness.

Penny is not sure what to say or do.  When it comes to Rampage, she is seriously attracted.  She also gets seriously angry.  He knows her secret, but can she trust him with her past?  The attraction between them is getting so strong, it may cause the spark to ignite.

This story just starts off with such electricity!  You feel the powerful pull between the main characters right from the beginning.  I loved the humor, the heat, and the banter.  This was a great addition to the Redemption series.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

EXCERPT:

 
“This is where you don’t want to be as a smaller grappler,” he says in his ‘I’m a professional MMA fighter’ voice. “How are you going to get out of this hold?”

The question isn’t so much how am I going to get out of it but do I want to get out of it? And with Rampage’s hard, muscular body on top of me, his legs between my thighs, his hardness pressed tight against the juncture of my thighs, I’m not sure I do. Rampage stills, and his eyes widen. Bugger. Did I say that out loud?

 “I’m not sure I want you to either.” His breath is warm against my ear. “But if you don’t move, we’ll both get kicked out of class. So, what are you going to do?”

 “Um…overhook an arm, bridge and roll, then get on top into the closed guard?” Rampage drops his weight, stealing my breath.

“Won’t work against a larger opponent. You need to blast through my hips and use a bit of strength to overturn me. Strength you don’t have. Your best bet is to escape back to half guard.”

 “Okay.” I wiggle just the tiniest bit against him, seeking more of that delicious pressure against my clit. With my vibrator on high, I was able to take the edge off this morning, but with Rampage on top of me, I’m wound up all over again.

 A low growl rumbles in his throat. “You’d better be wiggling ’cause you’re moving into half guard,” he warns. “Now straighten up and make your transition.”

 “This is as straight as I get,” I mutter. “I’m a woman. Women have curves. I happen to have a curve in my back, and it wants to stay that way.”

 “I can feel your curves, darlin’. Every one of them. And it’s making it fucking hard to concentrate. Make your move ’cause if you don’t do it soon, I’ll have to go out and get a cup.”

I suck in a sharp breath. “You aren’t wearing a cup?”

 “No.”

  Don’t move. Don’t move.

I can’t help it. I move. Or, more accurately, I grind.

Wham.

Rampage transitions into half guard and flips me onto my front. While I try to get my knees under me, he straddles me and grabs my hips in his huge hands. Heat surges through my body, and I groan quietly in my throat. “What are we doing?”

“Hips up,” he barks. “Ass down.”

“They’re connected,” I point out. “Where the hips go, the ass follows.” Shilla snorts a laugh and drops to the floor beside me.

“Like this.” She stretches her body out into a perfectly smooth, flat, plank position, holding it with one hand. On her knuckles. Then she rolls to show me what Rampage wants me to do.

“If my body was one solid sheet of muscle, I could do that.” I tense my muscles, try to force myself into a position my body is not meant to go. “However, I have a weakness for chocolate biscuits, lazy Sundays on a blanket in the park, scones with clotted cream, and chicken tikka with thick, white naan bread slathered in butter. Unfortunately, it lowers my middle center of gravity.”

Rampage’s hands slide over my stomach, his touch firm, arousing my whole body with the promise of what those fingers could do if they drifted just a little lower. My mind goes hazy with desire and I can’t tell if I’m flying or if my hands and feet are still on the floor. I don’t care about jiu jitsu transitions. I don’t care that Shilla is watching us with curious eyes or that we’re supposed to be doing a group drill. I don’t care if the whole class is watching us. All I care about is feeling connected to Rampage and wanting this moment to last forever. He lifts me right off the floor, as if I weighed nothing, and pulls me against his broad chest, my ass against his hips, feet barely touching the mat, his hands firm around my body. My stomach clenches. My heart pounds.

He leans down until his mouth is so close to my ear, I can feel the heat of his breath. “I told you not to touch yourself last night,” he whispers.

 A flush of adrenaline tingles through my body, followed by a thrill of fear. “What are you going to do about it?”

Take care
Under Pressure - Lori Foster

Leese meets his new charge under less than perfect circumstances.  He can see why she needs protection.  He just wants her to trust he will keep her safe.  Even when it gets ugly.

 

Catalina has been surviving on her own, and does not feel she needs help.  Those that are after her are beyond reach, so what is the point.  Now, some hot time, that she could use.  There is more to this than just security.  

 

This book was an excellent start to a new series!  I loved the characters.  How strong the female lead is, how sassy.  She knows what she wants.  I am surprised the pages did not melt.  The book is HOT!  This author always gives us her best.  I cannot wait to read the next book in the Body Armor series.  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Fight for Her (MMA Fighter series) (Volume 1)
Fight for Her (MMA Fighter series) (Volume 1) - Vanessa Vale ARC Review: Fight For Her (MMA Fighter Romance) by Vanessa Vale

Emory was a great character. She may have looked fragile but she had a hidden strength that made her all the more intriguing. Grayson is a man with iron in his veins and weariness in his heart. His career has been full of ups but he's tired of the high life and wants some down time. Fight for Her spotlights martial arts but it also delivers a knockout punch to the heart. Danger lurks in the shadows and electricity leaps off the pages.

EXCERPT:

 

She leaned her back against the door and shut her eyes, her face ghostly white. Her hands shook as she adjusted the strap of her purse on her shoulder.

 

Frowning, Zack shoved his hands into the pockets of his jeans and headed toward her. She smiled weakly when she saw him, her lips twitching up for a second, but the smile didn’t reach her eyes. Her fingers curled around the strap of her purse, her knuckles going the same shade of white as her face. Something hot and protective tightened his chest, and for a crazy second, he wanted to reach out and pull her into his arms, to promise her that, whatever it was, she’d be okay.

 

Instead he stopped a few feet in front of her, his hands still in his pockets. “Alexa? You okay?”

 

Her eyes met his, and she sucked in a shaky breath. “I...Oh God.” She pressed her hands to her face and let out a soft sob, her shoulders trembling.

 

Zack yanked his hands from his pockets and pulled Alexa into his arms, cradling her against his chest. She felt so tiny, so vulnerable. She barely reached his shoulder despite the fact that she had heels on.

 

What happened? Did someone hurt you?” he whispered into her light-blond hair, so fine and soft under his fingers as he stroked the back of her head. So help him God, if someone had hurt her, he would make them bleed.

 

She pulled back, just enough to look up at him, and he noticed the mascara smudged under her eye. He left his arms around her. It would’ve felt wrong to take them away.

 

She shook her head slowly, her bottom lip caught between her teeth. “I...don’t think...I can’t.”

 

Do you want to go outside? Get some fresh air?” Maybe if she calmed down a little, she’d be able to tell him what the hell had her so...It was more than upset.

 

The poor girl was fucking spooked.

 

She hesitated a second before nodding. Without a word he tucked her under his arm, shielding her from the view of the other party guests. He led her down a hallway off the foyer and into the garage, where a side door led into the quiet, dark backyard. The noise from the party filtered out through the open windows, mingling with the soft gurgle of water from the pool. A cool spring breeze rustled the palm fronds and teased Alexa’s shoulder-length hair around her jaw. She brushed it aside as he led her to a stone bench off to the right, their backs to the house.

 

For several moments they just sat, Alexa sniffling and staring blankly at the still water of the pool. Zack stroked a hand up and down her back, hoping to comfort her in some way. He’d spent the past year as a bodyguard honing his protective instincts, and they now came to life, alarm bells ringing through his skull. Something was very, very wrong.

 

When she finally spoke, she surprised him with her question. “Who’s the party for? Sierra was cagey about it on the phone earlier.”

 

Zack glanced back at the house. “Oh. Uh, for Taylor and Colt. They got married in Vegas last weekend.”

 

Alexa’s head whipped around. “What? But didn’t they just get together?”

 

Yeah.”

 

They’re crazy.” She shook her head, but he could hear the smile in her voice.

 

That’s what I said.”

 

Gently, she laid a hand on his arm, the tips of her fingers warm against his skin. “Are you okay?”

 

Fuck, she was so sweet. He was supposed to be comforting her and finding out why she’d suddenly burst into tears, and she was worried about him because his ex-girlfriend had eloped.

 

He laid a hand over hers, allowing himself the luxury of tracing his thumb over her delicate knuckles. “I’m fine. Just surprised, like everyone, I think. You gonna tell me what’s wrong?”

 

She sighed heavily. “I don’t even know where to start.” “Beginning’s usually a good place.”


 

She scoffed out a laugh. “That would take too long.”

 

He turned to face her. “Did someone hurt you? What happened, Alexa?”
A tremble coursed through her, and he wished he were wearing more than a T-shirt and jeans so that he had a jacket or a sweater to offer her. But he didn’t, so instead he pulled her close and tucked her against him. “Please tell me. I want to help.”

 

 

She swallowed thickly and looked up at him, meeting his gaze. “I...I think my dad’s a murderer and that I might be in a lot of trouble.”
