Product Description

​Continuing the saga of the men and women of fighter gyms, Beat and Pulse, comes CRASH, the story of a broken woman and her journey of discovery...

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?
You fight.

Ohh, a feeling of calm washes over me when it comes to this series. This is about the only gym I willingly want to be near but I digress. I have been waiting patiently for a book showcasing these two characters. Violet has held my interest when her harrowing story unfolded in the earlier books. I hanker for stories like this, not for the brutality – but for the character growth.

Violet is the winner in this book. Her circumstances help Lincoln change for the better and I’m keen to see them again in the next book. Beat is getting a face lift and Violet takes great strides to overcome her crippling anxiety.

Lincoln is a great addition to the line-up and I loved seeing the main characters from Beat and Pulse make their appearances. The pacing is fast paced and there’s only one complaint, as soon as one character was introduced, I predicted what was going to happen but it was still enjoyable. In saying that though, Amity’s writing style is something I really enjoy. Witty, clear and concise.

Highly recommend this series.

I was given a copy of this book for my honest opinion.

I was so very excited to get my eyes on this, I love The Beat and Pulse series by Amity Cross. This is Violets story (the lovely Ash's sister). This was well written, I felt like I was joining her on her emotional journey of learning to live again and learning to trust and feel again after suffering such a horrific ordeal. I also loved how Ash and Ren made appearances, their humour and banter is fantastic just what Violet needs to keep her spirits up, but she also needs more! Does Violet find her more? Does Linc succeed in his fight to convince Violet that he is her more? You'll have to read and find out. Amity has knocked it out the park again!! Roll on October for the next book! Another 5 star read!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This series started out phenomenal and hasn't quit!! 23 September 2015
By Sheila73 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Although this is about a different couple than books 1 and 2 (Beat and Pulse), you still need to read this series in order. If you don't, you'll be lost and missing out on some important backstory.

This is the story of Lincoln and Violet. Violet has pretty much been a recluse since she was violently raped and abused by her brother's enemy, Hammer. She's afraid of everything in the outside world and even more afraid of anything to do with men. Starting in the last book, she had slowly been gaining baby steps in overcoming some of her fears. She wants to be herself again and be able to be around people without breaking down in a panic. Since Ash, her brother, has just opened up his new MMA gym he hires her to keep their books for him.

In a twist of fate, Lincoln has to return from the AUFC MMA championships due to an injury. He can't fight for 6 months, so he ALSO ends up working at Ash's gym. He hasn't seen Violet since before the tragedy and isn't sure what to expect. Back when she was younger and used to hang around the gym that Ash practiced at Lincoln had a crush on her, and unbeknownst to him she also felt the same way. Both of them still have feelings for the other but they don't know how to approach them.

Although Violet WANTS to get closer to Lincoln, she's too damaged to be the kind of girl he wants or needs, especially sexually. Of course this is just what SHE thinks, not how Lincoln feels. He isn't sure if he can be who she needs, because he doesn't feel worthy of her. But he can't deny the pull she has on him, so he decides HE wants to be the man to bring her back to herself because the idea of anyone else doing it makes him want to hurt whomever that guy may be.

Lincoln is so patient with Violet that it will melt your heart. They spend time getting to know one another and can't help falling in love. He does the only thing he knows how to do to help her, and that is to fight. He refuses to let her painful past shape the woman she becomes. She slowly emerges from her cocoon into a beautiful butterfly and even though it took hard work on her part, she couldn't have done it without Lincoln.

Just when things are going well, a series of events occurs that could be the end of them. Violet is still fragile and things that might be easy for other people are huge hurdles for her. Thy both must dig inside themselves to find the strength from the love they share to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Violet has to be a fighter, too.

This love story is just perfect. Neither Violet nor Lincoln are without flaws, they both made me angry several times before the end. I wanted to yell at them both to get their heads out of their asses and realize what they had right in front of them. Good thing they listened to me! They get their "happy for now" and while I hope it's an HEA, this IS an Amity Cross series so nothing is for certain. I'm really excited to continue with book 3.5 (Spike) which goes back to focus on Ash and Wren. I'm sure we'll still get glimpses of Violet and Lincoln and I want to see how they're doing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Will Love conquer fear? 28 September 2015
By Beneath The Covers Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Violet is a rape victim who has struggle to regain her life ever since that horrific event. She has been hiding away after all these years until one day her brother suggests she works at the new gym he just opened up.

Lincoln is a Fighter in the AUFC forced to take time off due to an injury, He finds himself working at Ash's gym.

Lincoln and Violet have had crushes on each other since they were teenagers will they be able to act on those feelings now or will the rape keep her from the one she wants the most?

I really liked Lincoln and Violet's story I felt her pain while she was trying to heal and her determination to no longer be a victim. Lincoln was so sweet and patent with her. There was some bumps in the road but nothing to make me want to throw my kindle.

Crash (#3 the beat and the pulse)
By Amity Cross

Crash is the third book in this series, but follows the growth and relationship of Violet Fuller and Lincoln Hayes. You are introduced to Lincoln in Beat and Violet makes her appearance in Pulse. This story is for them.

Lincoln Hayes has worked his whole life to be a professional MMA fighter. It's what he does, it's who he is. When an injury lands him with 6 months of down time he eventually makes his way to Pulse, the fight studio Ash Fuller opens. Ash gets along with Lincoln a bit better than his twin brother Dean. When Lincoln turns up Ash could really use some help with the fighters he has already. The possibility of seeing is adolescent crush, Violet - Ash's little sister, makes the idea all the more appealing.

Violet Fuller suffers from PTSD to a severity that not many people can handle. She hasn't left the house except once to help her brother since her attack. When she decides to take her life back Ash offers her a job running the office at Pulse. When she runs into her adolescent crush Lincoln Hayes at the opening party Ash talked her into she freezes and clams up. Her fear driving her out of the door and away from Pulse.

When Ash and Ren head to Thailand Ash asks Lincoln to look after Violet. He knows the score and knows what happened. Violet makes more progress with Lincoln's help in a few weeks than she has in a while of therapy. Moving past what happened to her with the help of Lincoln could never have prepared her for falling in love. That's exactly what she goes and does though.

With Lincoln healed and back in Sydney his relationship with Violet makes it hard for him to concentrate, her as well. When she decides to take the biggest step in her recovery and heads to Sydney she can't help but break when she gets there and finds another woman in his bed.

His declaration of love is what the romance novels she loves are made of. Can she find it in herself to listen to what he has to say and be the strong woman he helped her to become or will this set her back into a tailspin she could t have imagined.
4.0 out of 5 stars Violet hates that she has let he life get this bad; hates that she has let Hammer take her ... 8 October 2015

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.
5.0 out of 5 stars While technically this could be read as a stand alone since it is a different couple I highly recommend that you read these book 5 October 2015

Book three in the Beat & Pulse series is about Violet Fuller and Lincoln Hayes. While technically this could be read as a stand alone since it is a different couple I highly recommend that you read these books in order so you don't miss out on all the backstory. Violet is of course Ash's little sister that was attacked by a maniacal thug her brother was fighting while he was to go pro in the UFC causing her to become a introverted hermit that couldn't leave the house. Her attack also unknowingly caused her brother to seek retribution and get him banned from the UFC permanently.

Violet has slowly but surely tried to regain her independence since she was attacked venturing outside and seeking therapy to overcome her fears. Men of all kinds are a trigger for Violet's fears, as are being around people. With Ash opening Pulse and needing help she takes a job keeping the books for him. When she walks in the door to start work and sees Lincoln Hayes also working at Pulse she is speechless to say the least. The man Violet has had a crush on since she was sixteen is just as beautiful as ever and now he is right in front of her but there is nothing Violet could ever do about.

Lincoln Hayes has the worst luck in the world. Linc and his twin brother Dean finally make the pro circuit but a stupid injury sidelines him for the next six months and all he can really do is take a job at Ash's new gym Pulse. Linc is shocked and utterly pleased to see Violet walk into Pulse and can't believe she is still the beautiful and amazing girl from all those years ago. While he is undoubtedly attracted to Violet he understands the severity of everything she has been through and refuses to hurt her any further regardless of how much he wants her.

As Violet gets stronger Linc finds it harder and harder to mask his feelings for her until they both decide to come clean with their intentions. Lincoln was flawless in his determination to be the support system for all things that Violet needed and she in turn starts to do the same for him. Beautifully written story of love, survival and strength. Can't wait to get the check in with Ash/Ren in Spike book 3.5 next :)
