Series: The Beat and The Pulse #3
Author: Amity Cross
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: September 22, 2015
Violet Fuller has been through a lot in her short life.
After being viciously attacked, she’s hidden herself away from the world for the past five years, fearing everyone and everything. That’s until the day she finally gathers the courage to go outside.
Violet decides to take a job at Ash’s new gym, Pulse, to reacquaint herself with the male dominated world of MMA. She used to be her brother’s biggest supporter, going to all his matches and cheering him on. There’s no one he trusts more to help him run the admin side of his new business, but when Violet walks through the door for the first time, she sees someone she wasn’t expecting.
Handsome, AUFC fighter, Lincoln Hayes.
The same Lincoln Hayes that she’s had a crush on since she was sixteen.
All muscled, disciplined, hot as hell, six-foot two of him. He’s definitely not a boy anymore.
Things are about to become more difficult than Violet had hoped. So much for easing back into reality.
And Lincoln? He’s only got one thing on his mind.
How do you win over a woman who is afraid of everything?
ILST's review by Juls
"I had to get out of the house or wither away in darkness.
Lincoln is just as swoon worthy as I remembered! I remember really liking his character from the Beat and Pulse novels. He is still a great guy! In Crash, we get to know him on a more personal level which I really enjoyed. I will say that he is no Ash Fuller by any means, but there's just something about him that keeps you interested!
We also got to know a little of Violet in the previous book when she went to speak to Ren in regards to Ash. Now, Violet is trying to move forward and trying to move past the dramatic experiences she has had. She has been living in a bubble, not coming outside, and just staying in her safe place. Since Ash has opened Pulse,Violet decides that it would be good for her to get out and try to heal.
Lincoln's and Violet's story was really good. It truly showed that anyone can be pulled out of their darkness with the right support. The way that Lincoln was there for Violet, how he truly believed that she could get better, showed me how much he really cared for her. The way he took his time with her, so that she could get used to him being around, was perfect. I loved the words of encouragement that he constantly gave to her.
"Ash got you justice, but I'm going to help you live again."
"Be fearless. Be the women you've become and never let her go."
It was an emotional story, but it was also a great love story. I did like Beat and Pulse a little more, but I did really enjoy this one as well! I'm still enjoying this series by Amity Cross!
Amity Cross isn't her real name. That's no secret.
She is the author of wicked stories about rock stars looking for redemption, gritty romances featuring MMA fighters and dark tales of forbidden romance. She loves to write about screwed up relationships and kick ass female leads that don't take s**t lying down.
Amity lives in a leafy country town in southern Australia and can be found chained to her desk, held at ransom by her characters.
