Review ~ Full Contact (Redemption #3) by Sarah Castille

Full Contact (Redemption, #3)
eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: April 1st 2015

Publisher: Source Books

When you can't resist the one person who could destroy you...

Sia O'Donnell can't help but push the limits. She secretly attends every underground MMA fight featuring The Predator, the undisputed champion. When he stalks his prey in the ring, Sia is mesmerized. He is dominant and dangerous and every instinct tells her to run.

Every beautiful thing Ray "The Predator" touches he knows he'll eventually destroy. Soft, sweet and innocent, Sia is the light to Ray's darkness-and completely irresistible. From the moment he lays eyes on her, he knows he's going to have to put his dark past behind him to win her body and soul.

My Opinion

I was excited to read this book as I read book 2 last year and loved it. Similarly, Full Contact definitely lived up to its standards.

I went in thinking with the worry that the story might be a little repetitive--I don't know why but that's what I assumed. Maybe it's the erotic genre that led me to believe it. Anyway, it's safe to say Full Contact was in no way repetitive. It had a good story line that kept me engaged the whole way through. I loved the MMA aspect and the alpha-male roles. The guys all have a clear personality and they're a great cast.

Moreover, I found Sia an easy character to sympathise and connect with. She was a mixture of strong and vulnerable that worked well and kept the balance. I thought she dealt with things believably and her emotions were true.

One thing that annoyed me slightly was Ray's language. At times he sounded so much like a caveman with his statements like "man sees xyz, man wants xyz." At first I thought it was a typo because I'm reading an ARC but as the book went on it happened too frequently to be that. It just grated on me. The other thing was that the plot was kind of predictable and took a while to unfold. For me it could have been paced a bit better as there was a lot crammed into the end I would have liked more depth on.

Overall though, this was an enjoyable, hot read. If you like dominant, alpha-male, fighters this series might be for you.
