Blurb:
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.

 Reese's Review:
Sia has had a major crush on Ray “The Predator” for a year and when their lives finally cross paths Sia can’t think about anyone else. Now Ray is showing up at her work, saving her life, and having crazy sexy times with her. He’s also opening the doors to Sia’s past, a past she would rather forget. Sia was sexually assaulted in college and ever since then she wants to be someone else, someone who wasn’t hurt. Ray wants to know everything about her though and when he finds out about her past he isn’t going to let the man who harmed her be free without getting what he deserved. Ray has a dark past and constantly loses the people he loves. He doesn’t want to get close to Sia for fear of losing her, but he can’t stay away.

Sia is a cute character who likes the darker side of things even though she thinks she shouldn’t. I have to say one of the reasons I had an issue with this book was Sia. She was sexually assaulted by someone she kind of knew and never trusted anyone again. I understand that people cope with these things in different ways, but she barely knew the guy and has trust issues? Seriously? I’m just not buying it. I get a lot of it was about trusting herself, since she trusted the wrong person, but again it was ONE PERSON ONE TIME. I don’t know maybe I’m insensitive but I just didn’t like how she used that as an excuse to not trust anyone and not grow up.

Ray has some issues with anger, but he is super protective of Sia right from the beginning. Everything he does is to keep her safe. I really liked Ray a lot. From Ray’s protectiveness that wasn’t overbearing to his dry sense of humor and sexiness. I love Ray right from the beginning. Swoon all the way.

Full Contact is the third in the Redemption series. I haven’t read the other two books, but it didn’t affect my comprehension of the story at all.

If you’re into hot MMA fighters, inspiring stories of growth and a story with a dark edge of danger then you’ll want to read Full Contact and most likely the Redemption series. Sarah Castille did a fabulous job crafting this sizzling hot romance full of danger and hot characters.
