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.
This is a quick novella to get you into the series. Marcy is a female MMA fighter who is really good but has one fatal flaw she can't seem to get past. Jax is brought in to help all the MMA fighters and particularly Marcy. He is a former MMA fighter and a psychologist and travels around to help fighters in different gyms all over. From their first meeting the attraction is intense. Knowing they need to keep it professional they both try to keep it that way. It doesn't last long though. Marcy has a hang up or two that is keeping her from being her best in the ring but Jax isn't without one or two of his own. I love that Marcy is this tough girl but she is still vulnerable when it comes to Jax. Jax appears to be guy who has it all together but meeting Marcy blows all that away. Jax is a sexual dominant and Marcy is a submissive. This is a problem for Marcy in the ring but in the bedroom it's exactly what she needs. This book is short on pages as a novella but there is plenty of story packed into it. I can only hope we'll get more of Marcy and Jax in future books. A must read for MMA romance fans who like a twist of BDSM.
