Audiobook review. Let me start by saying that I've read this series a bit out of order. Because of this, I might be getting a different angle than someone who read all the stories in order. In Rampage's story (the latest in the series), Ray comes off as an uber protective friend to the ladies in his life and his behavior with Sia in his own story falls in line with this ideal. There was an intensity about him that I really liked so I was excited to read his story.

The chemistry between Ray and Si

Sia went through a tough incident five years back, one that changed her and her brother, Tag and continues to affect her relationships. But Sia can’t help the effect Ray has on her. He’s an intense MMA fighter and she’s spellbound by him. Sia is both attracted and scared by everything he represents: danger and dominance. Her past screams that she stay away from someone who could steal away her will and make her vulnerable, but she’s also highly turned on by the thought of being contro

I can only blame myself for reading this book and then not enjoying it, because I requested it on Netgally even after I've read the comment from RT Book Reviews which described it as "Fifty Shades of Grey meets Fight Club." Having read the FSoG trilogy and the synopsis of this book I had some idea of what I can expect and I still read it despite knowing that Fifty Shades-alike stories don't work for me n

Are you ready for a Hot, Feral, Smokin' MMA Undergroud Fighter named The Predator??? Are you prepared for some nasty, intense, smexy scenes only he can give...with a woman who's tattooing art touches him in all the right places...

If so... then you only have to wait till April to meet and greet this hunk...because that is when he is coming and it will be Full Contact ...nothing less.

Really enjoyed another sexy read by Sarah. I had some moments that made me swoon and others that frustrated me so much from the back and forth on both Ray and Sia. I really loved some of the scenes where they opened up.. Just a couple of things that held me from 5 stars.
Still I'm totally claiming Torment aka Max as the winner by knockout..#1MaxFanForever

This is the first time I've read anything from this author and the book I read was the third book of the Redemption series. I didn't choose for it to happen that way, it was just picked by chance. I normally like to start with the first book of a series but I can say I really didn't miss anything vital or anything that would hinder me from liking this book by doing so.

Now I will give author Sarah Castille, her props she really wrote a very good read, because she kept me engaged and captivated t

Awesome story. Fantastic characters. Ultra hot sex. Drama and passion. Loved this. Devoured it!


Sia and Ray... holy wow these two! Demons from their past? Check! Passion, tension, drama. Check! This had it all. I loved the build throughout and as all of Ray’s details were learned. I loved him opening up and these amazing moments of vulnerability. I mean, this guy is so alpha and commanding it's crazy and super hot but those sweet moments, I was a goner. Sia.

How did I not know about this series until just now? I've really been missing out and now I have to go back and read the first two books in this series!! I saw another reviewer post that "The Club Redemption boys are all growly, alpha, MMA fighters" (Head Whore Miranduh) and I simply couldn't come up with a better description for Ray "The Predator" in this book.
I pretty much fell for him from the very first time he made an appearance. He had this really alpha, neanderthal way about him, especia

There are not enough adjectives to discuss HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS FREAKIN' SERIES!!! (Also not enough words to say how much I LOVE YOU Sarah Castille but that's another story!!)

Sarah Castille is one of my favorite authors. While the witty banter and laugh-out-loud humor is what initially drew me to her writing, it's not required to maintain my appreciation. While I'm totally in love with all the possessive, protective, sweet, cavemen that are the Redemption MMA fighters and staff, it's not all about them. This particular story went a little deeper, tackling a sensitive topic, and therefore is more on the serious side. I still enjoy

Not too long ago I read about Sarah Castille's bikers in mc romance Rough Justice. I thought I loved her then. But now I've met her MMA underground fighters and I am completely smitten, and a bit worked up - in all the best of ways. Sarah Castille brought the dirty to this romance in Full Contact, and I loved it.



This book was fantastic. With characters named things like Hammer Fist, Doctor Death, Rampage, Torment, and The Predator, how can you not fall in love? Ok ok, those are their fighter nam

I’m going to keep this review short and sweet. Full Contact was a really enjoyable read for me. I loved Ray and Sia’s story. The last few years of Sia’s life has been anything but easy. She now finds herself living in the shadows and taking the easy way out. The last thing she was prepared for was Ray. Ray was quite, but an excellent fighter. Total alpha male. From the moment he met Sia, he knew he had to have her. She brought light into his life and made him want to leave all the darkness behin ...more

From the sidelines Sia O'Donnell has managed to quietly admire her longtime crush, The Predator. She knows it is dangerous to be at the underground MMA matches, but it gives her a raw inspiration for her tattoos she designs. Believing Ray, The Predator, has never noticed her she is surprised when he talks to her after a match.

The chemistry is instant, but both Sia and Ray have shadows that are keeping them both on a thin line as they explore what they mean to one another. Will they be able to pu

OMG!OMG!RAY is getting his own story. Loved him in In Your Corner, especially how protective he was with Penny:

Penny: "If I want to dance around the cage, that's my business."
Ray: "You just try to dance around the cage, Pen. I'll be all over your ass. We gotta find you a man who will look after you. A good man. Someone who'll treat you right."
Penny: "I had a man."
Ray: "You had a worm."

EEEEEE! I can hardly wait!

Heroine was raped when a teen and has major issues because she 1) had to hide the whole situation and basically no one other than her brother and best friend know what happened. No closure no justice. 2) Do rape victims ever go back to "normal"? Life is forever changed and they live in fear until they are finally able to get closure and a semblance of a normal life.

Anyway... on to the story. She has the hots for one of the fighters but also has major trusts issues..especially with her own judgem

I was so excited to receive this novel from Sarah Castille via Netgalley since I am a huge fan of her writing and this series in particular. I was even more excited that I got everything I was looking for from this book and more!

The series is based around the MMA gym Redemption and it's fighters. In the first two books we get the story of the owner of the gym and it's top ranked fighter, in this story we are branching out to another one of the fighters who fights strictly underground. We met him

3.5 Stars - Quite good.

Full Contact by Sarah Castille is the 3rd book in her Redemption series. I haven’t read the previous two books and I had no problems following along, though this story did make me curious to read those books as well. Full Contact is an erotic MMA romance between Ray the “Predator”, an underground fighter and Sia, a tattoo artist. They are both damaged and their emotional baggage adds a few bumps along the way. Their romance is intensely sexual and volatile. I would have li

Holy Moly, I am in love Sarah Castille's writing and this amazingly awesome sexy as hell alpha fighter series. I was really excited for Full Contact because I knew I was going to get a heavy does of alpha book boyfriend and they happen to be my very favorite type of book boyfriend right after asshole book boyfriends. But I have some good news Ray was a heaping pile of both alpha and asshole so he is kinda my dream guy and he absolutely stole the show for me.

From the start this series could be counted on for sexy, uber alpha fighters, who love as hard as they fight. And this book was no different. The characters are awesome, the storylines are addictive and the writing is perfect. And we get to see a little more of our favourites as well as a few of our not so favourites.

Sia is the much loved and very over protected sister of Fuzzy, who has been quietly lusting over the very sexy Predator forever. What she doesn’t realise is Predator more than live

I loved this book from start to finish. It is filled with the harsh world of underground fighting, danger and hot hot sex.

This was a great, GREAT book.

FULL CONTACT is a fabulous and gripping new story by Sarah Castille. I couldn't put this story down, and it had everything I wanted in a great story: lots of tension, gripping suspense, laugh out loud lines, and chemistry enough to sizzle the pages. Ray and Sia are two characters that, by the end of the book, will make you feel as if you've met new friends. You'll root for them, while at the same time, curse each barrier that pops up.

This book was a bit up and down for me.

The first half was excellent. Sia and Ray were amazing MCs! I loved all the secondary characters as well. Sia's coworkers at the tattoo studio, her big brother Tag, the guys from Redemption, the bff Jess. And I liked the secondary plotlines with the tattoo studio and the MMA fights. The writing was great too. Ray was just what Sia needed and he helped her become a stronger person.

So what was the problem? There was just too much push and pull in the romance
