    5. Oh how I love Katie Ashley books! In Beat of the Heart we get AJ's story. The crazy-sexy Latin lover and drummer for Runaway Train. AJ is good with the ladies, all smooth moves and saying just the right things. But AJ is not just a man that is all talk, behind the young drummer's massive sexual nature is a man that has a good heart. Mia is a nurse who has had her heart broken by every man she ever dared to love. Not willing to trust that AJ is just more of the same, and weighed down with her pas [...]

    9. AJ sounding cool in the first book. I really hope he dosent have those "episodes" jake had.But anyways I'm really looking forword to (Rhys?) story. The rich background and all that jazz


    10. It started off okay: AJ:meets Mia at the hospital:She's a nurse, Italian, has an attitude and bad experiences with men so AJ has trouble convincing her to go on a date with him. But she eventually caves, and it begins. AJ takes her dancingWhich leads to:They eat at her family's restaurant where she tells people he's gay. Then they dance some more. They kiss. Then they leave and continue:And they keep going with the SEX. I felt like I was listening to Justin Bieber's PYD song, and they were just [...]


    11. DNF= No RatingBeat of the Heart is the second installment in author Katie Ashley's new-adult romance series: Runaway Train. Ms. Ashley does a great job at developing characters who the target audience can relate to, but this particular story just didn't keep my interest. (FYI I'm not the target audience)My perspective of Beat of the Heart:Rockstar drummer boy sees girl- Boy pursues girl- Girl resists- Girl finally gives in (of course)- Girl has body image issues and relationship baggage- Girl ca [...]


    12. Katie Ashley is a hit or miss author for me. I love her books or I don't like them at all. Yet I keep reading them AND I AM SO GLAD I READ THIS ONE!Beat of the Heart is one REALLY F'N HOT read!! WOWZERS. From the first chapter I loved AJ and then Mia comes along and the two together. *sigh* Let me just remind you this isn't your daughters YA book - some scenes are HOT. This quote I picked out as my favorite of the book:Enjoy this one I know I did.




    13. I read the first book in the Runaway Train series five years ago, I bought this 2nd book in the series not long after that but it has taken me a very long time to get my shit together and read books from my never ending TBR. However, 2018 is going to be the year of discovering unread books so this was a fantastic dive back into that promise to myself.AJ is the drummer in the band and has quite a reputation with the ladies. However, when he truly meets someone special he is 100% committed to them [...]


    14. *ARC provided by author for an honest review*For additional reviews please visit realitybites-letsgetlostsBeat of the Heart is book two of the Runaway Train Series (Music of the Heart is book one). Each book can be read as a stand alone, although I would not suggest it. Not because of cliffhangers (there are none in this series!), but because characters you meet in book one are in this one as well. And I believe it would just give you a better understanding to have read their story. Now, on to m [...]




    15. First off, I am a HUGE Runaway Train fan! I would follow those boys all over the county and scream as if they were the New Kids on the Block and work for free as their tour manager and number one fan (LOL) if I could. Jake stole my heart in Music of the Heart but AJ - he set my heart on fire!! Like SERIOUSLY!!! Mia and AJ are high combustible and let me just say that I will never be able to ride in a limo again without thinking about them!AJ wasn't looking for a relationship or love, but when Mi [...]

    17. Buddy reads with Audrey Thunder and MJ FryerThank God I read AJ before Jake. I like AJ, but not crazy about him.Mia well Mia had some issues with infidelity, make sensebut too much misunderstanding, making me tired.There's some scene that I thought not really necessary.But it was okay read, AJ was hot but f*** dating is not really my thing either :)




    18. Read more of my reviews and ramblings at Ana's Attic Book BlogAJ Resendiz was my favorite character in Music of the Heart" target="_blank">Music of The Heart by Katie Ashley, hands down. In fact, I mentioned in my review that I wanted his story, and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised at how much more I enjoyed Beat of the Heart compared to Music of the Heart. Music was sweet, the heroine a virgin. Beat was plain old H-O-T. It also had one of my favorite things, banter. I love flirtatious [...]


    19. What I love about Beat of the Heart by Katie Ashley. Ms. Ashley has written a book that is smart, sexy, feisty, witty, and is a must read. The book is the second novel in the Runaway Train series.The book centers around A.J. Resendiz, the drummer from the band Runaway Train. His character was introduced in the first book, Music of the Heart. A.J. is cocky, sexy, rich, and has a silver tongue that he uses to his advantage in and out of the bedroom. Ashley writes him as a totally likable character [...]


    20. When I think of Katie Ashley, hot and steamy sex isn't the first thought that pops into my head. While her books have been known to induce a fair bit of cheek fanning, Beat of the Heart is undoubtedly her spiciest book to date, immediately launching into the whirlwind love affair between protagonists, AJ and Mia. Readers were first introduced to Runaway Train's drummer in Abby and Jake's story, Music of the Heart, but Beat of the Heart shows a different side to the former womanizer as he meets h [...]


    21. Read more reviews| Find Me on Facebook Beat of the Heart is book two in the Runaway Train series. We are first introduced to AJ in book one, Music of the Heart. We know him as the adorable, Latino drummer that loved to swoon the ladies speaking in Spanish; now its AJ’s turn to fall in love with his book. You get what you get with Beat of the Heart. It’s a fun, erotic romance. You cannot go into this thinking it’s another The Proposition, one of my absolute favorite novels of 2012 by Katie [...]
