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.

My kids hated me while I was reading this book because dinner was late. Every page held something more for me. I kept promising myself just one more page, just one more chapter. This continued for about an hour before I finally forced myself away from the story to do my mum-thing.
Told in a dual point of view we have Renee (Ren) Miller and Ash Fuller. Ren has overcome so much in her life but the death of her mother forces her to honour her mothers dying wish for her to go and find her father. The father who has been missing most of her life. She finds him at Beat, a gym where he trains up-and-coming MMA fighters. Ash Fuller, a disgraced and disqualified, championship quality fighter has a chip on his shoulder and an anger problem. Hence the reason he found himself no longer allowed to compete professionally. He has been gone for four years but returns to the gym and his old coach. It is then his and Ren's paths cross.
So begins a love/hate relationship that is more complicated than not. It's a case of Cinderella meets The Beast. However, the beast doesn't only reside in Ash but Ren as well and is fuelled by an anger they both seem to possess. They soon find their match in each other, they are so much alike that it's like a match made in Hell. There are other forces lurking on the outskirts of this story that are going to back the monsters into a corner leaving the couple with limited options but to fight their way out.
Amity threw a twist in toward the end that hadn't crossed my mind and left my head to spin. Do I have a heap of questions - hell yeah I do! Holy Moly, a cliff-hanger but one crazy ride that you can't help but enjoy. Book two is a must! There is still so much to be revealed.
