They were a storm I never saw coming, an unforeseen heartbreak on the edge of a dangerous cliff.
In AMBER TO ASHES (Atria Paperback; June 9th, 2015), Amber Moretti’s life changes in the span of minutes. An orphaned outsider, she is desperate to start fresh the moment she walks onto campus. In the time it takes to cross the university’s dining hall, she meets two men who bring color, air, and light to her darkened world.
They became my addiction, each a needle to my next hit, my high.
Brock Cunningham’s appeal is dizzying, a potent force Amber can’t deny. A green-eyed smooth talker, he instantly attracts Amber. It doesn’t take long for him to consume her every thought, her every breath.
Ryder Ashcroft, a blue-eyed, tattooed, and pierced bad boy, turns Amber off immediately—that is, until he kisses her, stealing a piece of her heart, her soul.
They were as opposite as fire and ice, yet I ached for them equally.
Never knowing she could be broken down in so many unexpectedly beautiful yet petrifying ways, Amber finds herself falling for both men.
Immoral? Maybe. I say undeniable. Uncontained.
But one devastating event changes everything, shattering each of their lives...and Amber isn’t sure she can recover from it.
AMBER TO ASHES is Gail McHugh doing what she does best, completely mesmerizing us with her masterful writing, giving us no choice but to hang on tight to every single word. After reading the prologue, I knew…I just knew that this book was going to fuck with my emotions and leave me on my knees begging for more. And here I am, 100% through the emotional ringer, and I can’t stop thinking about it.
Be prepared to have your mind warped, your emotions obliterated, and your body electrified…You will not know what hit you!
I’m left… on the floor in a dark corner, arms around my knees, rocking back and forth yearning for what’s to come, and yet I’m completely afraid of what’s to come. Will it end the way I want it to? Will Ms. McHugh throw me for a loop and take this in a direction I’m not ready for? I think I was a complete mess throughout the entire story and I freaking LOVED it! There is so much more to this story, and I have no doubt this author will continue her magic in the next book, giving her readers exactly what they crave, an ending that will knock our socks off.
The complexities of each character was so vast. Each one brought another level to the story. Amber, Brock, and Ryder…a triad of fucked-up-ness. Some will be Team Brock. Some will be Team Ryder, and others might just be Team Amber, because I gotta say, she was a fantastic female lead. She knows how to hang with the big boys. I envied her, and not just because she had two hot men pining for her. She had spunk, and she had fire. She just had that something that made for a fantastic heroine. The two male leads, well I’m not going to tell you what team I’m on because that might give something away. Let’s just say, ladies, you will have your work cut out for you deciding who you like best.
Fans of Gail McHugh and her Collide series, will not be surprised at how well-written and emotionally fulfilling AMBER TO ASHES truly is. McHugh is sure to have created die-hard fans with this masterpiece of a book.
Be warned…this book does end in a cliffhanger, but DO NOT let that deter you from picking this book up. Gail McHugh will NOT disappoint, and once the whole story is told, you will be SO GLAD you didn’t turn away. Dive in to this EXPERIENCE of a book. I guarantee you will have NO regrets!
