A New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

Her mind tried to fight a bloody battle against what her body already knew. She wanted him, and she wanted him bad.

On the heels of college graduation and the unexpected death of her mother, Emily Cooper moves to New York City to join her boyfriend for a fresh start. Dillon Parker has been sweet, thoughtful, and generous through Emily’s loss, and she can’t imagine her life without him—even as her inner voice tells her to go slow.

Then she meets Gavin Blake. A rich and notorious playboy, Gavin is dangerously sexy and charming as hell. Their first encounter is brief, but it’s enough to inflame Emily’s senses. When their paths cross again through an unexpected mutual acquaintance, she tries to deny the connection she feels, but Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome won’t let go so easily.

As she discovers Gavin’s pain-filled past and Dillon’s true nature begins to surface, Emily knows she must take action or risk destroying everyone—including herself. But how can she choose when she can’t trust her own heart?

A New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!

“Do you know how scary it is to want something so bad you’re willing to change your whole life for it?”

Emily Cooper is ready to risk everything to be with the man who has consumed her thoughts and dreams since the fateful day they met. Unraveling fast, she can only cling to the hope that Gavin Blake still wants her.

Nursing his wounded heart, Gavin has cut himself off from society and retreated into a self-destructive, mind-numbing world. Emily isn’t used to being the strong one, but she’ll have to find the daring and confidence within to fight for their love and bring Gavin back from the edge—even if it means losing herself to their all-consuming, pulse-pounding passion. A New York Times bestseller, Pulse is the unforgettable conclusion to the story of Emily and Gavin that began with Collide.

review2I am cursing myself because I started this series so late in the game. I kept telling myself, I’ll get to it, I’ll get to it! I don’t think I go a day on Facebook or Twitter without someone declaring their love for the infamous Gavin Blake. I am now proud to say that I have happily jumped on that bandwagon. Hell, I am the leader of that bandwagon 🙂

I’ve done something I haven’t done in a while, because this girl loves her sleep, but I read Collide and Pulse all in one night. I just couldn’t stop. My night was filled with a bunch of, “Oh shit!” and “That son of a bitch!” and “You’ve got to be kidding me!” It was so much fun, and I wanted the story to go on and on. I read the reviews for Collide ahead of time and I knew there was going to be a major cliffhanger at the end of book 1, but even those reviews did not prepare me for what was ahead. I was so incredibly entranced in this story and these characters that nothing could have pulled me a way from starting right up with PULSE. I wouldn’t have been able to sleep even if I tried. God forbid if I read Collide when it first came out and had to wait for Pulse. NO FREAKIN’ WAY!

“He filled her. Claimed her. Broke and owned her. Brought her full circle from the woman she once was to the woman she was becoming.”

Incredibly intense, sexy as hell, and so emotional it put me through the ringer, Collide and Pulse are definite MUST READS! And when I say must read, I mean MUST READ NOW! DO NOT put if off any longer, but be prepared, you will have the book hangover of your life!

“I want to break the rules with you. Kiss you passionately every day. Make you smile when you’re about to cry. I want no regrets with us. I want us to laugh together until we can’t breathe and it hurts. No man will ever love you the way I’m going to love you, Emily. You’re it. My last. My forever.”
