I was a bit hesitant to start Josie and Dean’s story because I wasn’t very fond of them based on their actions in other books in the series. I’ll admit that the primary reasons for my disdain for the pair was Josie’s treatment of Hamish in book 6 and Dean’s lust for a spiteful bitch who did nothing but use him and abuse people he cares about.

BUT, I was willing to give both Josie and Dean the benefit of the doubt because everyone deserves someone to love…everyone deserves the “more” that life has to offer…everyone deserves to find a place to belong and find meaning.

Josie and Dean finding their “more” was definitely not easy. Throughout the story, they both make epic mistakes and never truly open their eyes until everything has turned to shit. Neither of them believes fully in themselves or one another, which makes fighting for a relationship – one that is not on solid ground – extremely difficult.

Throughout The Beat and The Pulse series, readers have witnessed each fighter settle down and become grounded in a relationship that makes each one of them not only better in the ring but also provides him with the ability to split his focus in a way that’s not distracting. Dean may be the last man standing when it comes to finding his other half, but that actually makes sense because he’s always been the bad boy…he’s always fawned after a girl who treated him like crap…he’s never actually seen what was right in front of him.

Surge is the perfect title for Josie and Dean’s book because they both impulsively act on their unearthed feelings for each other, and that rashness ends up breaking both of them down in a number of ways. And while their sudden actions definitely make them doubt what they have, it also forces them to deal with their pasts, make up for their mistakes, and go all in and fight for what they truly want from each other.

A complimentary copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.
