Title: Steel
Series: The Beat of the Pulse #5
Author: Amity Cross
Genre: Fighter Romance Stand Alone
Release Date: March 23, 2016

All Josh “Steel” Caplin ever wanted was a little bit of glory…until he was left for dead on the street outside a hospital ER. 

The last thing he remembers is being beaten to a pulp at The Underground, the illegal cage fighting ring that’s bad news, but the only place he feels he belongs. 
When he finally wakes up, he stares right into the eyes of an angel and for the first time wonders if there’s something more out there for a guy from the wrong side of the tracks. 
When Dr. Holly Walsh finds an unconscious man on the street, she stakes her claim over her patient for better or worse. When he finally opens his eyes, she isn’t prepared for how deep that claim is about to run. 
They both have pasts they’d rather forget, but together they’re stronger…if only they’re strong enough to fight for each other. 
Can a bad boy fighter and a big time surgeon really make things work? 
Or when their two words collide, will it be sirens…or sparks? 
STEEL is the fifth full-length novel in the bestselling Beat/Pulse series from Amity Cross. 
Time to fight for the broken hearted…

I love this series by Amity Cross, for this one, for some reason I just couldn't connect with characters.  I liked that this ran in line with the other books, which I have devoured. I just couldn't connect with Josh. I loved that Holly was a doctor, more specifically his doctor, Not to mention she was young, left where she lived to start over, and determined. I will also note, I cried when we went through the case with the little boy. 

With all that being said, I liked the story line, who the villian was. I was surprised, as I'm sure that was Amity's intent. And I loved how that played out, minus the heartbreak. Just something about Josh himself got under my skin and I would like and not like him. I think it was the low self worth. I don't know. But then, why didn't that impact me with Holly and her feelings after what her ex did. ... see... i don't know what's wrong!

Either way, this flows like the typical awesome writer Amity is. And i read it quickly, just because i can never put her writing down. This whole series is one i highly suggest.  

I give this somewhere between 3.5 -4 stars

Amity Cross isn’t her real name. That’s no secret.  She is the author of wicked stories about rock stars looking for redemption, gritty romances featuring MMA fighters and dark tales of forbidden romance. She loves to write about screwed up relationships and kick ass female leads that don’t take s**t lying down. Amity lives in a leafy country town near Melbourne, Australia and can be found chained to her desk, held at ransom by her characters. Don’t send help. She likes it.
