Ren Miller never dreamed her life would turn out quite like this.
On the cusp of qualifying for the brand new woman's UFC league, she's finally found the thing that makes her tick. She finally has a whole new life before her, but it’s one that doesn't include Ash Fuller.
No one has seen or heard from Beat's Golden Boy in six months, not even Ren. He's disappeared off the face of the earth and he's just another person who's ended up abandoning her when she needed him the most. He broke her heart, but he took the one thing that was hers. Her spirit.
When someone unexpected turns up at Beat with an ultimatum, Ren must make a decision. Go after Ash and her own heart or make her Dad's dream of winning a Championship come true.
Will Ren choose to fight?
Or sacrifice everything to save the man she loves?

Pulse starts out a while after Beat ended. We find that Ash never returned after disappearing and no one knows where he's gone or what happened.
Ren, brokenhearted, puts everything she's got into training. She doesn't know anything else for a long time, just fighting and training. In doing so she builds a relationship with her father, one that stems from her fighting and placing. Then, out of nowhere, a piece of Ash's past walks through the door at Beat and Ren is forced to make a decision.
Ash never wanted Ren to know about his past. He never wanted her to know his current situation, but once she does, he knows he also doesn't want to let her go again.
Pulse follows Ren and Ash on their journey back to each other and their journey to the future. Making plans for what they are going to do and figuring out how to get there. There are new people we meet that offer big insights into Ash's behavior, and there are big changes made in relationships with people we know from book one.
I think Pulse offered wonderful closure to the events from Beat and the series as a whole. Not only did Ash and Ren finally shed secrets, but they also built up a relationship on trust and made plans for the future. They worked towards moving on from the past and letting go. It wasn't easy and it wasn't always fun, but each aspect worked into the story as they got to that point was very well written and sucked you in to the characters and their world.
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 in southern Australia and can be found chained to her desk, held at ransom by her characters.
