This however is Caleb and Juliette's story and what a story it is one not to be missed that is for sure! Caleb is a fighter until he got badly injured and was told he should never fight again as it could paralyse him. He works for Ren and Ash, training fighters, unfortunately he has a lot of issues to deal with; I wanted to jump in there and give him a huge hug at one point. I really felt for him and the relationship he had with his Dad; which made me want to punch him in the face whilst giving his son a hug!
Things started to look up for Caleb when Juliette wandered into the gym one day, looking for self-defence classes. He felt something he'd never felt before and it made him want to help her for some reason. Juliette has had a horrific past that she's trying to overcome and she feels she needs to defend herself. Can Caleb help her? Can Juliette trust him enough? You really must one click this book to find out.
There are a few twists along the way that I certainly wasn't expecting and I was on the very edge of my seat more than once. This is a fantastic addition to the series and I can't wait for the next one! I really don't want this series to end!
Amity Cross characterizes Juliette in such a way that allows readers to truly understand why her metamorphosis is a work in progress. Changing her hair, her clothes, her job, and her city has given her a new path to follow, but it’s clear that there will still be successes and failures as she tries to handle her fears, her grief, and her anxiety, and when there are setbacks and all of the old feelings try to take back control, without someone truly seeing her and recognizing what’s beneath her new image/life, it will be incredibly difficult to not succumb to the anxiety that constantly threatens to take over.
Caleb’s past may not be as horrific as Juliette’s history is, but that doesn’t lessen the damage it has done to the man. As someone whose life has been defined by his fists and whose family aligns his value/worth based on his successes in the ring, his inability to continue as a professional fighter is something he needs to get used to and with his father finding fault in every decision he makes, Caleb is left feeling inferior and enraged at his father’s mistreatment.
But meeting Juliette gives Caleb a purpose and brings someone into his life who needs and wants him and also accepts him for the man he is, which allows him to find his own path in life - one that is not defined by his past but more so by love and honesty.
Juliette and Caleb come into each other’s life when they’re needed the most, and while a complete discussion of their pasts doesn’t happen right away, it’s clear that what’s developing between them is a relationship that can help them move forward and provide them with a new passion to hold onto, especially when doubts and fears surface.
Quake is a great addition to Amity Cross’ The Beat and the Pulse series, and Cross continues to illustrate how fighting techniques apply to every facet of life, inside and outside of the ring.
4 Poison Apples
Juliette Spicer has decided to start over after living in a nightmare for the last five years. Losing her twin sister to an unsolved murder has left her a shell of her former self so she decided to move to Melbourne and change both her appearance and name. While a fresh start has helped she is still afraid of her own shadow and decides to enroll in a self-defense class at Pulse gym. Slowly but surely she starts to regain that confidence.
Caleb Carmichael was on the fast track to being a superstar in boxing until a cheating opponent almost paralyzed him. He was told to hang up his boxing gloves as it was too risky to continue. Making the best of his situation he decided to train/manage the boxers at Pulse gym where he runs into the most beautiful, but oddly skittish woman. Caleb is determined to find out more about her and hopefully ease some of her fears.
Caleb's story is one I have been waiting a while for and Amity does not disappoint! The drama, angst, mystery and romance weave together seamless to make this story flawless from start to finish. Can't wait to see what she throws at us next :)
