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...
Three years after graduating college at the top of her class, EMT Makayla Delaney is floundering in a dead-end hospital admissions job, barely scraping together enough income to pay for her tiny room in a shared Oakland, Calif., home. When a bill collector starts hounding her for student-loan payments, she reluctantly takes a second job treating injuries at an unsanctioned mixed-martial-arts fight club. Despite her aversion to blood and fighting, she can't resist acting on her intense attraction to the club's owner, Max "Torment" Huntington, a fighter and rich venture capitalist. Alpha-male Max doggedly pursues Makalya, attracted to her determination to support herself and her enjoyment of BDSM-lite. Firmly set in the "new adult" genre, Castille's debut is steamy but could benefit from additional character development.

Against the ropes
Loved it. Max and Mac, a great story.
Poor excuse for an Alpha
I didn’t even finish this book. I like this author and usually enjoy her strong alpha male characters. But for me she missed the mark with this one. Max is nothing more than a man child and the intensity of his overprotectiveness for Mac is ridiculous when compared to the story’s trajectory. Even the first meeting is cringe. Don’t even get me started on the paragraph about “how we treat our men” in chapter 17. She can’t be serious. And after that chapter, not even the money I wasted could make me finish this book.
Try her Sinner’s tribe MC series instead. Much better. Good in fact.
You will be hooked!!!
Wow for sometime I have been looking for a good book to read. This one got me from the beginning. A beautiful love story between Mac & Max. I highly recommend this book. Mac changed me opened a fire inside me to be tougher. I loved this book so much. I am looking forward to read the next book in the series.
