This is the second book in this series and they must be read in order. It has been six months since Ash told Ren that he didn’t love her and that he never had any real feelings for her. Six months since anyone has seen him or Hammer. They both just disappeared. Ren doesn’t know if Ash crossed that line and killed Hammer or what happened. So much has happened in those six months. She started by asking her dad to train with the twins. Now she is on the cusp of being in the AUFC women’s league but is it what she really wants. She has gone back to fighting at the underground even though it could cost her the AUFC. Then one day a girl named Violet comes to Beat asking for her. Violet is Ash’s sister. Ren didn’t even know Ash had a sister. Violet comes to ask Ren to come see Ash. Violet tells her that her brother is on house arrest and that he is wasting away. Violet thinks Ren is the only one who can help her brother. Violet also tells Ren why her brother was sent to jail in the first place. Ren is torn; she still loves Ash but he left her. What if he doesn’t want her like he said? If she doesn’t go see him she can hold onto the hope that one day he will come and find her. Will Ren go see Ash? Will they be able to overcome what has happened? They never really got to know each other the first time. Maybe this time they can start from the beginning and really get to know each other. This book was just as great as the first one. The characters go through so much but they refuse to give, they just keep fighting. Violet is a great character. I feel so bad for her. She has basically had her whole life taken from her by Hammer. One night changed the rest of her life. She doesn’t really leave her house. She has everything delivered to the house. It must have taken so much courage for her to leave the house and then face Ren. The book takes some interesting turns. Ren, Violet, and Ash finally get some closure to what has happened to them. I am so excited to read the next book and to see what happens. The next book Crash is supposed to be about Violet and Linc which has me super excited. Another fantastic job Amity Cross. I was given this book in return for an honest review.

4 star If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first Beat (The Beat and the Pulse, #1) This is more Renee’s “Ren” story. If you read the first book you know we were left on a cliffy. Now months later Renee’s feeling abandoned yet again. She thought Ash would be there for her but he left her just like everyone else. Her heart is broken and her will is gone. She fights to feel otherwise she is just alone. Now Ren is on a journey in her career that she is not sure she even wants. When she finds out where Ash is and finally sees him is not the same man. He is broken. Can they come clean and reveal all the secrets and their pasts in order to have a fighting chance at a future? Or is it over for good before it really even got started? I recommend this book.

Pulse has us back for a second helping and packs a different kind of punch, I enjoyed it but I have the sense that something is missing. Kept waiting for a big showdown, a big awakening, a big something … and I just don’t feel it was big enough to do the character’s justice.  I found the tone of this book to be a lot different to Beat but that’s not a bad thing. I got the sense of dread weaving like an undercurrent throughout this story, another one of Cross’ strengths, stories within stories.  Hard-ass Ren is back and stronger than ever. Coming from nothing, in every sense, she has literally fought her way to the top rankings. While reading, I had questions and the answers slowly trickle as the story unfolds. But Ren’s tone has changed in this book. Ren is heartbroken and angry. Ash has dropped off the face of the earth. No communication. No idea where he is. Gone.  Ash is hiding and to me, fearful. That’s a quality that’s never been highlighted before. He’s not sure how to face his past and make it his future but his life is empty without Ren.  Ash is in his own hell. I have to note at how surprised I was to find him so broken and so well written. He is not the Ash from Beat. He is a shell of himself and as much as I don’t like co-dependant storylines, this one is different. Their relationship might have been built on a physical scale but now, they both need something stronger than that.  Ren and Ash are in a different place in their relationship and trust has been abolished. They are both looking for answers and trying to rebuild what they had before Hammer did the unthinkable in Beat. The passion they have for each other is real and absorbing. You can’t help but be sucked in and feeling like a voyeur with these two. They only have eyes for each other and despite a little miscommunication and misinterpretation they are forging a formidable relationship. Dare I say it, this book is not hitting the smouldering off the chart antics of Beat.  The other aspect that I love about Cross’ writing is her secondary characters. At some points throughout this book, I was hoping for a little more insight into those characters. For an author to create a persona that is hated like Monica, she creates likeable and loveable characters with ease. I was hoping for a bit more pressure put on Monica but I understand why her story was the way it pans out. The coin has flipped. When you read this story you will know what I mean.  I was kindly provided with a free copy of this book from the author to provide an honest review. Receiving this book for free did not influence my opinion nor review.

I love this series. I like the time spent to reconnect the characters. Once they were connected again the action and sexy chemistry was in full motion. Amity Cross really knows how to write a great book. I can't wait to see what she does next.
