Review ~*~ Against the Ropes by Sarah Castille

Blurb ~*~
He scared me. He thrilled me.
And after one touch, all I could think about was getting more...

Makayla never thought she'd set foot in an elite mixed martial arts club. But if anyone needs a medic on hand, it's these guys. Then again, at her first sight of the club's owner, she's the one feeling breathless.

The man they call Torment is all sleek muscle and restrained power. Whether it's in the ring or in the bedroom, he knows exactly when a soft touch is required and when to launch a full-on assault. He always knows just how far he can push. And he's about to tempt Makayla in ways she never imagined...

Review ~*~

Against the Ropes is the first book I have read by Sarah Castille, but it certainly won't be the last.  I really hope that this is the start of a great series.  I haven't read much with MMA fighters and really enjoyed the world that Ms. Castille created in this book.

Mac has had a rough time in life, but is still fairly immature for  her age.  She abhors fighting of any kind but needs the money that being the medic in Torment's fighting club can bring her.  While Torment makes Mac's knees weak, there are a few things they both need to struggle with before you get to the steamy goodness of their relationship.  But the buildup is definitely worth it.

Against the Ropes is a recommended read for anyone who enjoys an Alpha Hero with secrets, a heroine that has her own code of morals and sticks to them, and a storyline that will capture your heart.  This is one of those books that hits just about all the right notes even in its cheesiest moments.  There is some over the top drama, and less than realistic scenes, but overall Against the Ropes is a great story.
