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?
Crash brings us the story of Lincoln and Violet, Ash's sister. We know from Beat and Pulse a little about Violet's history and the traumas she has dealt with. Now we get to see her up close and personal.
Violet is still dealing with her issues, trying to get on with life and be herself again, she's working with her therapist and of course Ash and Ren at times to try to get normalcy back. In this front, she accepts a job at Pulse, hoping to ease her way back into society. But discovering Lincoln's back could have her easing back into more.
Lincoln is suffering an injury, bringing him back home, while his brother is still off fighting. He's pretty down about being outside of the ring, but seeing Violet again brings a little happiness to his life. But as he gets to know Violet again, he sees a different person. Someone who's afraid, and shy and he's not exactly sure how to go about anything with her, he just knows he has to try.
Crash is a great addition to the series and it gives us a really great story. Lincoln and Violet both have a lot to work through for themselves and to be together. There is a lot to work through, moments of panic, trust to build, and storms to weather, but ultimately its worth it for love. Amity Cross has woven another fantastic tale about a fighter who's in it to win it, and I'm not just talking MMA.
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.
