(Runaway Train #2)
twenty-eight-year-old Mia Martinelli prefers healing her patients’ hearts on
the Cardiac Care floor rather than risking having her heart broken again. But
that all comes to a screeching halt when caring for the head roadie for Runaway
Train puts her into the orbit of drummer and Latin Lover, AJ Resendiz. After a
scorching weekend of steamy passion, Mia’s intention of getting out with her
heart unscathed is challenged by the stud with the wicked sense of humor,
especially when he wants to continue seeing her. But when the harsh reality of
AJ’s hoard of female admirers sends her insecurities into overdrive, Mia bails,
leaving him handcuffed to his bathroom shower.
female companionship he’d ever experienced, he would need rescued by his band
mates from his shower prison. Although he tries to forget the sensual brunette
whose curves made his mouth water, AJ can’t get her out of his mind…or his
heart. Months later when he finally seeks Mia for answers as to why she left,
nothing could prepare him for their life-altering reunion.
his body, his heart belongs only to her?
Ashley is the New York Times, USA Today, and Amazon Best-Selling author of The
Proposition. She lives outside of Atlanta, Georgia with her two very spoiled
dogs and one outnumbered cat. She has a slight obsession with Pinterest, The
Golden Girls, Harry Potter, Shakespeare, Supernatural, Designing Women, and
English until she left to write full time in December 2012.
Beat of the Heart is Book Two in the Runaway Train series and is a hot, sweet, entertaining and romantic book. AJ is the Latino drummer that we met in Book One. The ladies fall all over him but he is searching for something more meaningful. A chance meeting with nurse Mia might be just the cure for him. We are treated to lots of hot sexy times with AJ and Mia but will she let down her guard and let him in to her heart?
Mia is introduced to AJ’s rock musician lifestyle and wonders if she can deal with his crazy lifestyle, even though she really does begin to develop deep feelings for him. I love books with a dual POV so this was a big plus for me. I also liked the fact that Mia is pretty much an average working woman and yet AJ sees her as beautiful, desirable and sexy.
Beat of the Heart is a fairly light, erotic and well written book. Ms. Ashley’s writing style flows well and I cared about the characters. If you want a break from a heavy, angsty book, then Beat of the Heart is for you. Enjoy!
