“I wasn’t sure what I expected but while this book is quite sexy, there’s also a lot of serious issues that get addressed here as well. So well done to Katie Ashley for adding more dimension to her books!” ~ Under the Covers

BEAT OF THE HEART is the second in the Runaway Train series by Katie Ashley. It’s been such a long time since I picked up a Ashley book but I wanted some rockstars to get love. And I can safely say that I have found them in this series.

The big reason for me was AJ. Though he’s a little cocky and is considered a man’s man, there’s just something appealing about his character. He’s bad boy and sensitive man all rolled into one so reading about his romance with Mia turned out to be really fun.

I will say that the depth of this book really surprised me. I wasn’t sure what I expected but while this book is quite sexy, there’s also a lot of serious issues that get addressed here as well. So well done to Katie Ashley for adding more dimension to her books!

Since I did listen to this book in audio, I feel like I should touch on the experience. I haven’t listened to many audiobooks with two narrators switching in between chapters so I don’t have much to compare this experience to but I will say that the the male narrator was great. I wasn’t a fan of the female one though. Her voice grated on me and I couldn’t understand what she was saying at times. In all honesty, I think I prefer the male’s female voice to the real female narrator but Ashley’s writing is still nonetheless fun and exciting despite the wishy-washy narrators.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
