    "I want you to want me until you ache," he rasps. "I want you to need me with every breath in your body. I want to turn around and know I will always see you in my corner. I want you to want me the way I want you. Body, heart, and soul."I sure had some mixed emotions about reading Amanda's book. I felt like she did quite the number on good ole Jake during the first book. I'm not much for promiscuous heroines so she was already somewhat black list...

    Ok, here we go! "...I need a heroI'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the nightHe's gotta be strongAnd he's gotta be fastand he's gotta be fresh from the fight..." as Bonnie Tyler would sing...and she wouldn't be wrong...if put in the context of this storyline!this book had everything in it - what a mash up but it was working for me...And by the end of it, I got this urge to enroll the MMA course LOLfunny “I’m talking fight talk.

    This is book 2 in the Redemption series. I like this series a lot. The book started off (view spoiler)[& I thought it was going to go one way and it switched and went somewhere else. (hide spoiler)] I love that. Jake and Amanda were great! loved the character development. "I want to be your everything. he rasps. "I want all of you, baby. When I make you mine, really mine, there will be no part of you my lips, my hands, my cock won't touch, no des...

    Kinky. Very kinky. Thats what i think about this book. As expected there is not much character development. Just animal lust between jake and amanda. The kinky is good. Very alluring and sexy. But i wish there is more into the story to heighten the pleasure. More character development will be nice. The chemistry between the characters are not that depth. 3 butterfly stars.

    LOVE IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT!!!!! I thought Max was my favourite fighter, but after reading this, I take that back!!! OMG, Jake was such an ALPHA... *SWOON* ... and that piercing... *YOWZA*!!!!!

    I have been meaning to post my review for this for ages but when I went to do it today I realised it was in my lost kobo :(So I can't really come up with much other than the fact it was smoking hot with loads of dirty talk and a sexy MMA fighter.Figure I don't really need to say much more than that but it is a shame I didn't get to use any of my sexy fighter pics. Guess I will save them for my review of Full Contact which you can catch on the blo...

    Received an ARC for reviewThey were together. They broke up. They got back together and then broke up. get the picture. When they were together, it was HAWT. He did what to his package? I'm sorry I had to stop reading and google it. OH MY GOODNESS. This book was good but not as good as Torment and Doc. Now whose do I want her to write next: Fuzzy, Shilla, Ray, Penny, Doctor Death, Sandy. So many choices.....

    I don't think I can fully explain how excited I was to read this book. I read and reviewed the first book in this series almost a year ago, and from the first few pages I way dying for Amanda and Jake's story. Little did I know it was going to be a long and torturous story. I was expecting a flashback prelude of a story, but no. Sarah Castille had to go break my heart in Against the Ropes and break them up. Flash forward to In Your Corner. These ...
  • Heather andrews
    This one takes the cake out of all of Sarah's books I loved this one the most! Even after years of being apart Jake is protective of Amanda, "Jake's shoulders stiffen. "Private? Everyone in the hallway could hear you," he spits out. "Not only that, but she's hurt. Is this really the best time for a verbal assault?" Sometimes I don't think Amanda realizes she's pushing a caged tiger ready to pound upon being released, "he growls deep in his throat...

    2.5 starsAll the guys talk like they walked off the stage of a Kristen Ashley novel. All the fighter people had names like they walked off the stage of a JR Ward novel (but with fewer h's). All the villains acted like they'd been hired from Mustache-Twirlers-R-Us. The heroine seemed to be modeled after season 5 Buffy (will she, won't she, do I even care anymore?).I don't even know what was up with the hero. Even with the really repetitive blocks ...

    So I got to read an ARC of In Your Corner. I stroked the sexy cover and made a purring sound because...I had an ARC in my hand.And it was awesome.I loved Amanda and Jake. I loved the tension between them. I loved the conflict. I loved the sexy fun times. Watching Amanda struggle to find her way was what made this book for me. There was something so vulnerable about her.I cried a few times. I laughed a few times. And I am totally smitten with PI R...
  • Dabney
    This book bored me to tears and yet I suspect it's a sexy contemp that would appeal to many. If you like hot pierced heroes who love strong willed sexually demanding heroines and don't mind a paper thin plot and interchangeable secondary characters, you will like this book. I didn't but this really is a a case where I don't think most contemp readers will share my perspective.

    A copy of this book was provided by the publisher for an honest review at The Romance Evangelist.This review may contain spoilers for On The Ropes, book 1 in the Redemption series. You should be able to read In Your Corner as a standalone book.ON THE ROPES was one of the first Mixed Martial Arts themed romances I read back in 2013, and it’s still one of the best. So I was excited to learn that there would be additional books featuring other cha...

    There’re several things that stood out from this story but there was something that Makayla said towards the end of this story, don’t let your past define you. That is something that Amanda needs to do in order for her to have her happily ever after just like her bestfriend. I was so excited when I found out the next book in the Redemption Series was going to be about Amanda and Jake. The relationship that they had in Torment and Makayla’s ...

    In Your Corner by Sarah CastilleBook #2: Redemption SeriesSource: NetgalleyRating: 5/5 starsWith the market currently flooded with MMA fighter novels and me being a relatively picky reader, it takes something above and beyond to keep me reading this type of novel these days. Oh, and I am a big fan of MMA so I get kind of twitchy when it’s not done right. Sarah Castille has done it right and then some Amanda is a junior associate in a high-power...

    Review Courtesy of April HollingworthThis is the second book in the Redemption series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but they are so good I’d recommend reading them all. I have to say I loved this novel. Sarah Castille brings you back to club Redemption, but this time its two years later and things have changed. Redemption is now a sanctioned fight club, and Amanda and Jake have not been back to the club in the two years since they spl...

    5 Stars!!!I loved this book. I was pulled into the tangled web of the story in the first chapter. Amanda was so set in her ways but so strong. Jake was a hottie from the word GO. I loved his character and someone needed to stay strong for the both of them.The emotional roller coaster was full of ups, downs, twists and hairpin turns. I was so tense one moment and laughing out loud in the next paragraph. This book is ANGSTY! I have a hard time when...

    Reviewed by Nadene R.Book provided by NetGalley for reviewReview originally posted at Romancing the BookI was first introduced to Amanda Westwood and Jake Donovan in Against the Ropes. I was not impressed with Amanda at that stage and as such when it came time for me to read her story I must admit I began this story with a preconceived notion. Initially I thought Amanda was selfish and superficial, even so, as the story moved on my initial assess...

    Review for In Your Corner by Sarah CastilleIn Your Corner is the second book in this series… While you don’t really have to read Against the Ropes first, I would suggest it because it’s an amazing read and you get to see how Amanda and Jake meet. Not to mention how they end up apart.In Your Corner is how those two rekindle the flames that sputtered out and ohmigee do they ever rekindle.“I want to fuck you,” he growls. “I want to push ...

    UP and DOWN, Up and Down...thats how I felt while reading this story. I have not read the previous story in the series, this is my first by this author. So I didn't really have too much back story into Amanda and Jake. I really enjoyed everything except for our main girl Amanda...sometimes I wanted to hit her =) I fell in love with Jake immediately, and the whole gang at Redemption. And I cant forget Penny and Ray I loved them both. Amanda I real...
