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 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.
