Review ~ Yield to Me (Club Excelsior #1) by Sarah Castille

Yield to Me (Club Excelsior, #1)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: May 27th 2015

No-holds-barred attraction...

Amateur MMA fighter, Marcy Foster is determined to win the state championship. But dark secrets and a broken trust mean there's one submission she just can’t master. Fortunately Club Excelsior has hired a coach who knows all the right moves.

Sexy, confident and commanding, fight consultant Jax demands control, both in and out of the ring. But once he has Marcy against the ropes, Jax knows he’s in too deep. He has the dominance to give her what she needs, but once he unleashes her hidden passions, there's no going back.

Under Jax's skilled hands, Marcy submits to her deepest desires. But when her personal and professional worlds collide, she is forced to face a brutal truth — yielding to her darkest needs may be the one thing that costs her the fight...and her heart.

My Opinion

Having read two books in this author's Redemption series I was interested to see what she did with a new series where the books are shorter but still centred around MMA.

Yield to Me hooked me from the start. I like the tension between Jax and Marcy and want intrigued to see how their relationship would develop. There was a clear spark and chemistry with them and it was only enhanced by the fight training. I liked the fire Marcy had despite being a submissive.

However, whilst I like around two thirds of this book, it did lose my interest towards the end. I think it was because of the length really. The author kept throwing in statements like "couldn't save them" or "haven't spoken to them in years" but we never got to feel the pain or emotion. They were casual statements that didn't really bring anything to the book and I think it would have been better if they weren't included. It would have meant my attention probably would have stayed on the book rather than wishing for a deeper connection and more information.

Anyway, overall, whilst I preferred the author's other work, it was still an easy read. It was okay to break up the time and it may interest you.
