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 a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I love Sarah Castille. Her books have that raw, gritty quality to them that hooks me in. I like the way she writes steamy scenes because they are hot but are still full of emotion and passion. Whether she’s writing about MMA fighters or bikers, I know that her books will be ones that I will enjoy.

That being said, this first book on her Club Excelsior series, Yield To Me, is aonther enjoyable read. We have a heroine who treads a blurry line by being an MMA fighter as well as a sexual submissive. Then, we have a hero who’s a psychologist, an MMA coach/consultant, and a dom.

While I enjoyed Yield To Me, I did not love it as much as I liked the books in her Redemption series. Club Excelsior, as a series, sounds very promising. There are characters who were introduced who will no doubt be interesting main characters in the future.

This book was written the usual way Sarah’s books are written. This book will capture any reader. The thing that did not work that much for me was the heroine. Don’t get me wrong. I liked Marcy. I like strong women. She just wasn’t my favorite out of this author’s heroines. The same goes for the hero. He was a solid character, but can you actually tell me that there isn’t any other hero from Sarah Castille who you fell in love with more? I don’t think so.

I will definitely follow this series because I am a fan of the author, so I know that the next books will be just as good, if not better. Also, I will follow this series because I liked the other characters who were introduced, and I’d like to read more about them.
