review || STEEL { release day } by Amity Cross

Self-Published | March 23, 2016 | Sport Romance
The Beat and the Pulse, book 5


All Josh “Steel” Caplin ever wanted was a little bit of glory…until he was left for dead on the street outside a hospital ER.

The last thing he remembers is being beaten to a pulp at The Underground, the illegal cage fighting ring that’s bad news, but the only place he feels he belongs.

When he finally wakes up, he stares right into the eyes of an angel and for the first time wonders if there’s something more out there for a guy from the wrong side of the tracks.

When Dr. Holly Walsh finds an unconscious man on the street, she stakes her claim over her patient for better or worse. When he finally opens his eyes, she isn’t prepared for how deep that claim is about to run.

They both have pasts they’d rather forget, but together they’re stronger…if only they’re strong enough to fight for each other.

Can a bad boy fighter and a big time surgeon really make things work?

Or when their two words collide, will it be sirens…or sparks?

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.

Don't send help. She likes it.

So. I thought I enjoyed getting to know Ren and Ash, and did love Violet and and Lincoln. I really enjoyed watching Violet open up and move forward with her life.

But I wasn't prepared for the heartbreaking tale of Josh and Holly. Both are broken, mentally, physically, emotionally. And while Holly works to put Josh together because it's her profession, she finds he's helping her put herself back together, too.

I loved watching these two overcome their pasts and find that it is possible to move on, that it is possible to love, and that is possible to be full again. I hope that we will continue seeing at least glimpses of them in the future books.
