Tour, Review & Giveaway: Full Contact

Full Contact
by Sarah Castille

Ray wraps his arms around me and holds me tight as if something terrible has happened and he doesn’t want to let me go.
Full Contact. This is how Ray speaks when his emotions overwhelm him. I melt into his stillness. His body is hot and hard, his breath warm on my neck. He smells of leather and sweat, sex and sin. Nothing can tear me away.

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.

I received a copy from the publisher (via NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: *Note* I haven't read the previous books in Sarah Castille's Redemption series (this is number three) but it works as a standalone and I didn't find myself getting lost with too much confusing backstory.

In Full Contact Sia is looking for something to be passionate about. It turns out this something, is the fascinating bundle of alpha-protectiveness that is MMA (Mixed Martial Art) fighter Ray 'The Predator'. Sia is instantly drawn to Ray and pines for him in secret (by pines over, I mean she drools over him in a sassy tattoo artist kinda way).

I'm not a fan of weak female characters so I loved Sia's sass and strength. It was nice to see her overcome certain issues and deal with the past. Ray is demanding and dominant (both in and out of the bedroom). He's extremely bossy but does have a softer side when it comes to Sia. Both of them have more than their fair share of secrets, so be ready for drama and angst.

Their attraction is intense and naughty so be prepared for lots of details (Full Contact is an adult book so is full of graphic sexy scenes). I felt their attraction and chemistry but I would have liked Sia to be a bit more determined about certain elements. 

Sia and Ray are damaged but it's how they tackle their issues that is the main focus of the story. I appreciated discovering about their pasts but the best part was seeing them try to come to terms with it. 

I've noticed there are a lot of very mixed reviews doing the rounds and I have to say I agree with many of them, in the sense that if you don't like your men on the demanding alpha side and lots of sexy details, then Full Contact probably isn't for you. I don't mind adult content or violence if it fits within the plot; with Full Contact I felt that it did.

I enjoyed the drama of Sia's and Ray's story but would have perhaps liked Sia to have been more decisive, but I appreciated the times when she called Ray out on his OTT demands, even if I did understand his reasoning.

3.5 - 4 Stars in my Sky!
