Ren goes to meet the father who abandoned her when she was 5 as her mother's dying wish. Owner and coach of Beat a boxing, UFC and MMA training gym, her dad is a bit useless. He invites her to sleep in the storage room and use the gym facilities until she gets on her feet. After hours she starts training, then joins all of the classes to while away the hours. One day the prodigal golden boy of the fighting scene Ash returns to the gym and Ren's feathers are ruffled. Sparks fly and the pair end up on a dangerous path.
I had a few issues with this book. Ren seemed to go from carer to a female version of The Rock in a few months. She also stayed in her 'closet' room at the gym way longer than I think she would have. She had no ties to the place, especially with the way her dad treated her, yet she didn't move out at the first opportunity. She got a part time job but she stayed, she won 2 grand and stayed, her friend complained about expensive rent and instead of getting a full time job and offering to move in and help out, she stayed! Her dad refused to introduce her to his other family, Ash was tormenting her and her half sister was making her miserable yet she stayed there.
I wouldn't have minded the cliffhangers ending so much if a few more secrets had been revealed. As it was, it feels more like an unfinished story rather than a suspense filled ending.
This was book was free and the story was interesting but it defeats the purpose as you will definitely have to read the next book to get any resolution. As it is I don't think I'll continue.

Renee "Ren" Miller was five when her Dad left and never returned. She was left to care for her mother on her own (her mother had cancer and went through a lot of treatments and battles). Her mother has since died and she is all alone. However her mother told her to find her Dad as her last words.

Now twenty-two, Ren reluctantly goes to find her father. He owns the down and out boxing studio, Beat, and Ren decides to live there. Surrounded by boxing she decides to train herself in the evenings and joining the basic classes as a way of taking control of her life.

Then one day, Ash Fuller, how once was her Dad's star fighter appears - he is gorgeous and she feels instantly attracted to him even though he is a bad boy and could lead her down a dark path.

I loved this book - it had very real feelings and emotions and how different people could handle them

~*~ Obsessed by Books copy given in exchange for an honest review ~*~

"Talk about it? Talk about Mum and all those years in and out oh hospitals and the near death experiences? How can you talk about watching the life slip from someone's eyes? How do you explain the hollowness at being all alone in the world?"

Ren has not had the best in life, her dad walked away from her and her mother and never looked back. Unfortunately cancer was a constant companion and throughout her childhood she watched as her mother suffered and finally lost the battle. Leaving her last wish to for Ren to meet her Father she follows her mother's wishes and finds herself at Beats doors.

Not exactly welcomed with opened arms Ren is left to live at the gym in the spare room at the back like a homeless unwanted extra. Her half sister Monica is a conniving heartless bitch who thrives on her misery and is juvenile due to being a pampered princess...everything Ren is not. Her Dad has no excuses or even explanations as to why he did what he did, he's very restrained in his manner towards Ren and I have to say I didn't warm to him. He shows more kindness the the Twins than his own flesh and blood.

Ash, once the golden boy of Beat he had been disqualified from the Championship and then disappeared for four years. Suddenly turning up again no one dares question him as they all see the inner beast caged within. He continues to train at Beat and helps pay the way to get the club back on it's feet. Throughout training session he and Ren play a cat and mouse game continually eyeing each other up but not taking it any forther due their own demons.

This is there story of how slowly letting someone in can quieten the rage, channel the fury and keep the beast content...

This book is the first in The Beat & the Pulse series and is the story of Renee “Ren” Miller and Ash Fuller and is a MMA fighter romance

Ren has recently lost her mother and without a home or much to her name, she goes looking for the father that abandoned her when she was small. He has no explanation for his actions and but gives her a place to stay in a storage closet at his gym “Beat” and she soon starts taking MMA classes. I loved Ren. She is a strong and feisty character but underneath there is a vulnerable side to her

Ash Fuller, once Beat’s golden boy was disqualified from championship fighting and disappeared for a number of years before mysteriously reappearing. Ash is a typical alpha male, hot headed and arrogant and with anger issues, struggles to contain the beast inside of him. Nobody dares to ask where he has been and he begins training again at the gym

From the start, Ren & Ash have a love hate relationship. They are constantly at war but underneath it all they are intensely attracted to each other and when they finally succumb to their desires it is scorching hot. They are both similar in a lot of ways, battered from their pasts and trying to survive which adds to the attraction. Ren is then lead into Ash’s underground world of MMA fighting which she too embraces. This however is their downfall and the book ends in a fierce conclusion leaving us with cliff hanger and a lot of questions on what will happen to them and where this will ultimately end.

The book is really well written, to the point you can almost smell the sweat and blood during the fight scenes and feel the intense passion between Ren and Ash. Both are likable characters and by the end I felt invested in their lives and I can’t wait to find out what happens next in Pulse.
