Yield to Me by Sarah Castille‏


No-holds-barred attraction…

Amateur MMA fighter, Marcy Foster is determined to win the state championship. But dark secrets and a broken trust mean there’s one submission she just can’t master. Fortunately Club Excelsior has hired a coach who knows all the right moves.

Sexy, confident and commanding, fight consultant Jax demands control, both in and out of the ring. But once he has Marcy against the ropes, Jax knows he’s in too deep. He has the dominance to give her what she needs, but once he unleashes her hidden passions, there’s no going back.

Under Jax’s skilled hands, Marcy submits to her deepest desires. But when her personal and professional worlds collide, she is forced to face a brutal truth — yielding to her darkest needs may be the one thing that costs her the fight…and her heart.

I received this book for an honest review.
This is the first installment in the Club Excelsior series. It’s a novella of a good length and I can’t tell you if the next installment will feature the same couple of another one. It’s unclear and while there is enough material for more with the couple in this novella, the ending could be satisfying too.
I enjoyed reading Yield to Me, I started intrigued, then was hooked .
It’s a fun take on such a story and it’s different from what I’ve read so far in the genre. That’s a good thing, but that’s where it ends.
Marcy and Jax are interesting characters, but I think they’re not enough developed. In a way, I think this story should have been better as a novel instead. These two main characters have a lot to tell and yet I think they don’t have the time to face their inner conflicts, face the consequences of some of their choices. I would have loved to see the characters having more issues, see them struggling. Some ellipses leave out a part of it. That’s why I have a difficult time emphasizing with them.
