My Review: 3.5 Black Belts  

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I give Full Contact 3.5 black belts (stars). I love martial arts and fighting, so naturally, I was excited to pick up this erotic romance novel. I enjoyed it, overall. Sia's character was well developed and I liked the way she grew and overcame her past over the course of the novel, and the way she was a mix of vulnerable and tough. I thought Ray's character should have been a bit more developed. Also, even though I enjoy alpha males, grunting one-and-two-word sentences was a bit too much for me. But in general, I liked Ray and would have enjoyed getting to know more about him.  The erotic part of the novel was well done, it was sexy, hot and fun. The insertion of a few BDSM elements into the sex scenes wasn't overwhelming but added another dimension to them, which to me was a plus.

The secondary characters were also well developed and fun to read, especially Sia's brother Tag (who, I'm assuming, is going to get a story of his own), her best friend Jess and Torment, the owner of the Redemption gym (whose story was already told in one of the previous installments in the series)

Overall, I enjoyed the novel enough to pick up the rest of the books in the series.
