Buy This Book:






Renee "Ren" Miller was five when her Dad left to go to the shops and never came back.

Left to grow up with a cancer riddled mother, things have never been easy for a teenager who had to be wise beyond her years. Then one day they lose the battle and she’s all alone.

Now twenty-two, Ren reluctantly goes to find her estranged father. He owns the down and out boxing studio, Beat, and Ren finds herself drawn to the ring. She thrives on learning a new way of fighting a life that kept kicking her down…instead of struggling against the current, she kicks it right between the legs.

Then one day, Ash Fuller, her Dad's star fighter comes back to town. Mysterious, handsome… Dangerous… Everything Ren doesn't need.

But he's got other ideas…

…and so does she.





Beat had some good parts and... it had some other parts... Most of it was drama involved other was the whole broody vs angsty vibe. I'm not sure which kind of got on my nerves more. After awhile I kind of felt like okay, I get it.

Along with the sweaty panty sexual not so sexual attraction obsession which leads to some hot not so hot encounters and a questionable scene which didn't quite sit well with me. There was a lot of wish wash non investment with the h/h and after awhile I didn't really care if they overcame their issues which - cliffhanger - ugh, never really is answered.

Beat was okay I just don't think I was really in the mood for it.

Side note: As of 8/17/17 this title is listed for Free so get your copy while you can if you'd like to read it for yourself.




Until next time book lovers...

Beat by Amity Cross
Beat: #1 The Beat and The Pulse - Amity Cross

Beat begins when Ren goes to find her dad who left her when she was a little girl. She has no one else in this world, and this was her mother's last wish. However, she never expected to be treated the way she is, and for it to hurt so much.

Ren has a lot of anger inside, and she's pissed off at the world. But, after training at her dad's gym, Beat, she's getting better and finds an outlet for her anger. Then Ash comes into the picture and throws her world for a tailspin.

Ash is the "Golden Boy" of the gym who threw away his chance at a title so many years ago. No one really knows why, and everyone knows he's basically a loose cannon.
Ren and Ash don't hit it off very well either, and neither one can seem to stay away even though they are constantly fighting.

Things get more and more complicated between them and life gets more confusing for both Ash and Ren. Let's hope they can work it out before it is too late.

This book is one of the best female fighting books I've ever read! I wish there had been a little more fighting with Ren in the ring, but still this one was good. I really enjoyed Ren's personality, and I loved how she wasn't going to let anyone walk all over her, including Ash.

I also really loved how Ash thought he was doing the right thing, even though it was having some bad repercussions. It was still the thought that counted, right?

Well, over all this book was very good. It was filled with humor, a very crazy amazing romance, and two people who have a deep anger hidden inside that have to fight there through it to each other.

I did have thing I really didn't like about this book, it ended in a crazy cliffhanger that had me extremely frustrated. But, now I'm excited for more in this series.

Let me start off by saying, the book overall was a good book. It made you want to know how it ended. Although the ending left something to be desired, with both characters, but it wasn't too bad.

My main issue with the book was the fact that (1) it was very repetitive and (2) with both characters it was a lot of things that they kept repeating throughout the book and it became rather annoying...i.e. you know; I mean; like, etc..that's just Connor. With Gwen, it's a lot of Stop it crazy's and many variations of it.

I enjoyed it enough to say it's worth giving it a try, but go into it knowing that those things might be a bit much! :-)
