I like the story in this one, and all the complexities that these two had to deal with. I adored Penny and Rampage in previous books and while I wouldn't have paired them up initially, I was excited to see where their story led.
However, this book disappointed me. It doesn't read like Sarah Castille's usual work. For one it has both the male and female point of view, but more than that it's simply didn't have the same style of writing. I almost seemed like it was written by someone else. It was a good story, but not what I was expecting from a Redemption novel. Rampage is even called Jack throughout most of the story, making the reader forget he's an MMA fighter other than some perfunctory fights and training scenes; mostly we see him in his sadist persona. He's a totally different person compared to how he was portrayed in previous books (and not just his appearance, where he's lost weight due to some "mysterious medical issue", which is the actual reason Castille gives). Castille only marginally explains the 180 by saying that his Dom side has been hidden on purpose from his friends and he's just been pretending to be the loud, happy-go-lucky fighter we've come to adore.
It also seems like there is contradictory information in this book compared to the others. For example, Obsidian isn't gay (apparently he had a fling with Amanda?), Penny's middle name changed from Ann to Grace, Amanda's law firm lost the flowered Victorian couch,etc. Yes, I understand these things aren't important to the plot but little details can elevate a story from being "good" to "great", and the discontinuity jolted me since I reread the previous three right before reading this one. Also there were several story points that were repeated, sometimes using the exact same phrases.
Finally, the ending ties up all the loose ends in a rush of half a dozen paragraphs, which wasn't very satisfying. I was particularly unimpressed with how Rampage's family is suddenly all ok, particularly since his brother is still married to his ex.
Overall, I'm not sure I would've bought this novel if I had known all this, which is a shame since I had been waiting for the next Redemption novel for 2 years. Don't get me wrong, I liked the story ok, but as a separate novel outside the Redemption series. If Castille write another Redemption book, I hope she gets back to the skill of the other three in the series.
Not the hahaha laugh out loud funny that Against The Ropes and In Your Corner were, but it had its moments. It was fun to see Blade Saw finally find someone, and to see Ray's domestic side.
