Review for Quake by Amity Cross

Caleb Carmichael's star studded boxing career came to a screeching halt the day he ended up flat on his back in hospital.
If he fights again, he risks becoming permanently paralysed from the waist down. Professional Boxing is his whole life and he's lost without it, but he doesn't have a choice. Reluctantly, he cuts his losses and takes a job running the infamous Melbourne boxing studio, Beat.
But when a frightened woman turns up at the studio looking for a way to take her life back, Caleb realises there might be something out there for him after all.

Juliette Spicer was twenty-three when her twin sister was murdered.
Five years later, haunted by the public scrutiny, she changes her name and moves cities, only to find herself walking the streets the same night another crime is committed. The same crime that took her sister.
Realizing she can't escape her past, Juliette takes action and finds herself walking into a boxing studio, vowing never to be frightened again.
But what she finds there might save her in more ways than she was expecting.

From Amity Cross comes Quake, a sizzling new instalment in the Internationally Bestselling MMA fighter romance series, The Beat and The Pulse.

Kim's Review

Amity Cross' "Quake" is the #8 tale in The Beat and The Pulse series. Caleb Carmichael has had a rough few years. He was a boxer until one opponent decided to play dirty and end his career early by nearly paralyzing him. He's taken over managing Beat for Ren and has been training boxers in the gym to make a living. His dad is a douche and likes to try to tell him what do do, even though he's a grown man. His home life was always trailing after his dad's heavyweight boxing career in Vegas and various other places. Juliette Spicer has moved a few states away from her family in Queensland to get away from the place her twin was brutally murdered. One night on her way home she comes upon a crime scene, it reminding her of what happened to her sister. She decides to do something about it and shows up at Beat to look into self defense classes. Can Caleb help Juliette overcome her fear? Find out this and more in this awesome read!!!

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.
