All Josh “Steel” Caplin ever wanted was a little bit of glory…until he was left for dead on the street outside a hospital ER. 
The last thing he remembers is being beaten to a pulp at The Underground, the illegal cage fighting ring that’s bad news, but the only place he feels he belongs.
When he finally wakes up, he stares right into the eyes of an angel and for the first time wonders if there’s something more out there for a guy from the wrong side of the tracks.
When Dr. Holly Walsh finds an unconscious man on the street, she stakes her claim over her patient for better or worse. When he finally opens his eyes, she isn’t prepared for how deep that claim is about to run.
They both have pasts they’d rather forget, but together they’re stronger…if only they’re strong enough to fight for each other.
Can a bad boy fighter and a big time surgeon really make things work?
Or when their two words collide, will it be sirens…or sparks?
STEEL is the fifth full-length novel in the bestselling Beat/Pulse series from Amity Cross.
Time to fight for the broken hearted…

Josh "Steel" Caplin has got himself into quite the situation.  He wakes up in the hospital only to remember that he was beaten to a pulp in The Underground, an illegal fighting ring.  What he doesn't remember is being left for dead on the street.
Thankfully for Josh, Dr. Holly Walsh was on that street and found him. Once she found him and got help, he officially became a new patient of hers.  What she didn't expect was the feelings she gets once he wakes up.  Of course there's the usual lust, but there's also something else.
As Josh continues to heal, they get to know each other just a little more.  Holly wants to know more about Josh, but he's a little closed off.  These two continue to dance around each other all the way up until Josh is released.
Once he is no longer a patient in the hospital, all bets are off.  The question is, will they give in to the lust that's been floating in the air?  Or will this "tough as steel" MMA fighter and this surgeon be worlds apart?
This story was alright.  It flowed fairly well from one end to the other.  It was interesting to see how the events unfolded and how the feeling evolved.  Although the characters came from different worlds, you can't help but want to root for them.  I mean, everyone needs a happy ending, right?
I gave this story 3.5 stars because although I wanted to root for the characters, I didn't quite feel an intense connection to each of them.  If I can feel a better connection to the characters, that's when I truly love a book.

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.
