Exclusive Excerpt and Giveaway: In Your Corner (Redemption #2) by Sarah Castille

Today I have an excerpt and giveaway for In Your Corner, from author Sarah Castille and Sourcebooks Casablanca. Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

In Your Corner (Redemption, #2)Series: Redemption #2
Genre: Erotic Romance
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casa
Publication Date: 7/1/14

"You have to go. I won't be able to control myself. I've wanted you so bad for so long and after I've been in the cage...I can't think straight." He gives a guttural groan and his fist clenches on my hip.

Primitive. Primal. His need speaks to me. I tighten my grip on his neck and rock up to kiss him. He takes over. His kiss is hard and demanding.

"Mine." His voice is raw, savage and for a moment I truly believe he may lose control.

He rules in the ring

Two years ago, Jake and Amanda were going hot and heavy. But when Jake wanted more, Amanda walked away. Jake immersed himself in mixed martial arts, living life on the edge. But that didn't dull the pain of Amanda's rejection-until a chance encounter throws them together.

A high-powered lawyer, Amanda was a no-strings-attached kind of girl. But two years after her breakup with Jake, she still hasn't found anyone who gets her heart pumping the way he did. And then he shows up in her boardroom, hot as sin and needing help...

But can he rule her heart?

Jake is darker, sexier, and impossible to resist. As their chemistry builds, Amanda's not sure if she can stay in control, or if she's finally willing to let him claim her body and soul.

He is the only man who has ever had that effect on me. One touch and I’m gone. Just like the night we first met in his class. He put his hands on my hips to steady me while I was practicing kicks with a classmate and I almost melted into a puddle on the floor.
I jerk my hand away and smooth the papers on the boardroom table. Jake perches on the table beside me, his tight ass so close to the document I have to grit my teeth to stop my finger from wandering too far in the wrong direction. The richly masculine scent of his cologne makes my pulse race. And his heat…
My cheeks burn and a shiver of desire winds its way up my spine.
“Cold?” His voice cracks on the word, and I lift my gaze to his.
“No.” I try to cover up my body’s response by lightening the mood. “Badly drafted complaints give me the shivers.”
His gaze skims over my cheeks and then fixes on my eyes again, studying me intently as if he can see into my soul. His jaw tightens almost imperceptibly and he slides off the table and walks over to his backpack. “So, what’s the damage?”
“Uh…” Shaken by yet another rejection, I force my eyes to focus on the document. “You have thirty days to respond, so you have just over two weeks left. I’ll ask Mr. Farnsworth to arrange a meeting with the new associate as soon as possible and he or she can apply for an extension. You don’t want to miss the deadline, or Duel Properties will file for a default.”
Jake picks up his jacket and shrugs it over his shoulders, transforming himself in an instant from impossibly handsome to badass breathtaking. I return the documents to him, and he tucks them into his pack and grabs his helmet.
“You brought your motorcycle.” The inane comment falls off my lips before I can catch it. “Are you still riding the Kawasaki?”
“Nah. Changed a lot of things in the last few years. Replaced it with a Blackbird when I took over my dad’s company. Stopped training at Redemption, too. It’s a whole new me.”
Stopped training at Redemption? I have to bite my tongue to stop from asking why. When we were together, Jake lived and breathed Redemption, at that time an underground MMA club but now strictly legit. After he got off work every day, he taught classes, trained, fought, and ran the underground promotions for Torment. And when he was there, I was there, helping out where I could, sneaking into Torment’s office with him for a little lovin’ between classes and getting down and dirty in the gym after it closed.
“You seem the same.” But the words are true only in the sense that  he still takes my breath away.
His mouth tightens in a thin line, and for the briefest second I see the hurt beneath his steely gaze.
“Maybe on the outside.” He pulls open the door, and I grab my legal pad and follow behind him.
Looking back over his shoulder, he gives me the briefest of smiles. “I can see myself out.”
“It was nice to see you again.” My soft, wavering voice makes me cringe. But not as much as when he turns and walks away.
I guess it wasn’t nice to see me too.

  5. I love that excerpt. Is it weird that I like that he didn't give and just walked out?? See - that makes so much more sense to me coming from someone who was hurt. I know they'll give in eventually but that feels more honest to me.
