"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 had mixed feelings when I finished reading the first book in this series but I was more than willing to try the second book. I am really glad that I did because I found “In your corner” much more appealing to me. Jake and Amanda were wonderful and I loved how their characters were reintroduced in this story.
Castille really did a great job writing all these amazing characters that I fell in love with (Amanda, Jake, all the fighters, Penny, and Ray) and those that I wanted to punch in the face (Evil Reid.) I felt that this book had just the right amount of drama, passion, and action to suit my needs. I thought that Jake was one of the most complex male characters that I have read. He worked for his family company but really had a passion for teaching how to fight and being in the cage himself. Jake wanted more than just a physical relationship; he wanted Amanda’s heart as well. This was something that Amanda was hesitant on giving.
I hope, super hope, that the next book will be about Ray and Penny. They were just as big as the main characters in my mind. Their characters were set up perfectly and have left me wanting to read more about them.
