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?

This is the third book in this series and they must be read in order. This book is Lincoln and Violet’s story. Both Lincoln and Violet had a crush on each other when they were younger. Before everything happened with Ash and why he went to jail. Now Lincoln has come back to Melbourne because of a shoulder injury; the docs say he will be out for 6 months. With nothing to do and not being able to train he swing by Ash’s new gym and Ash offers him a job while is in Melbourne. Lincoln takes him up on his offer hoping he might run into Violet. Violet has been going to therapy again and making progress. Her therapist tells her that maybe she should look for a job. When she tells Ash about this he offers her one at the gym as an office manager. Violet is nervous to start on her first day and Lincoln makes her even more nervous. Violet hates that she has let he life get this bad; hates that she has let Hammer take her life from her. Lincoln sees his second chance with Violet and knows he has to take it slow. He is angry that all this has happened to her and wants to help her. Violet doesn’t believe that Lincoln could want anything to do with her in that way. She is just a scared little girl there is no way that she could give him what her needs or deserves. Will Violet and Lincoln get their second chance? Will Lincoln be the key to Violet learning live again? This book was more romantic to me than the first two books. Lincoln wants Violet so bad and knows that he must take his time with her. Allow her to get used to him being around and ease her slowly into the physical things. I felt so bad for Violet. She has been through so much and is so frustrated with her progress. She is so strong though; to overcome everything she has been and come out on the other side stronger. The relationship between Lincoln and Violet is anything but easy but it is wonderful to read about. I loved getting to read more about the other characters as well in this book. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series and find out what happens next. I love this series and the characters in it. Another fantastic job Amity. I am so glad that I got to read these book back to back and didn’t have to wait. I was given this book in return for an honest review.
