Review: Pulse By: Gail McHugh

By: Gail McHugh

Synopsis:  A New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

(Pulse is the sequel to Collide Volume 1) 

How do you keep existing when your heart is so splintered, so completely torn to shreds, your pulse is fading?

You’re…broken. How do you move forward when every breath is nothing more than a constant ache? Living becomes an insidious reminder that you threw away the single largest part of yourself. Your… soul. No amount of distraction can pull you from the torture of losing your…life.

Now that Emily Cooper has walked away from her first love, she finds herself running toward her only love. Unraveling fast, but clinging to hope, Emily risks all she has left on the man that has consumed her every thought and dream since the day they met. Will Gavin take her back? And if so, will their reunion be a collision of two hearts destined to complete one another and rekindle a love that knew no boundaries? Or will scars from their past rip open, tearing slowly at what each of them was meant to be? Can fate, the ultimate game changer, mend the shattered road it laid out from the start?

Only time will tell…


      Pulse is the continuation of Gavin and Emily's story from Collide.  It is a heart warming, gut wrenching, eye watering, breath stopping journey that had be smiling like a goon and crying like a baby. 
     The story begins where Collide left off.  Emily has realized she has made a terrible mistake and seeks out Gavin.  Finding him proves to me more difficult then she originally thought it would be, but once she tracks him down winning him back is not too difficult.  After all, Emily is the air Gavin breathes.
     Emily and Gavin's road to their happy ever after is paved with trails and tribulations.  They find themselves in the mist of the most joyous time of their lives, but is overcast with angst and torment.  It was heartbreaking that they never got to enjoy the little moments as much as they should have.  (Maybe next time.)
     The author did an amazing job highlighting the emotional toll an abusive relationship can have on a person.  Ms. McHugh shows us the tremendous effort and love Gavin must bestow upon Emily to help heal her soul from the emotional, verbal and physical abuse she has endured at the hands of Dillon.
     I must say before I go that chapter eighteen was totally... 100%... without any doubt... the most unkind chapter I have every read.  It was absolutely brilliant by the author, but completely horrible to do to the reader.
     Collide and Pulse were an amazing duo.  I cannot wait to see what this author does next.

Happy reading!!
