26-year old Gabriel Vincent is a badass hero. Or he used to be, anyway. As an ex-Army Ranger, Gabe never thought he needed anyone. But after one horrible night in Afghanistan scars him in a way that he can’t get past, he needs someone who can help him heal…even if he doesn’t realize it.
25-year old Madison Hill doesn’t need anybody…or so she thinks. She grew up watching her parents’ messed-up abusive relationship and she knows there’s no way in hell that she’s ever letting that happen to her.
They don’t know it in the beginning, but Gabriel and Madison will soon develop a weakness: Each other.
But Gabriel’s got a secret, a hidden monster that he’s afraid Maddy could never overcome… And Maddy’s got issues that she’s afraid Gabe will never understand. They quickly realize that they need each other to be whole, but at the same time they know that they’ve got demons to fight.
And the problem with demons is that they never die quietly.
Book Heaux Rating: 5 Freakin Stars!!!!!
Ok, I can’t lie… I was veeeeery skeptical about reading this book. I love, love, love “If You Stay” but I didn’t love Maddy in that book. I thought for sure her story would not be interesting at all because she didn’t seem interesting.
I love this book just as much, if not more than the first book.
Gabe is one seriously hot man! And he’s a freakin Army Ranger so we KNOW he is bad ass! I have visions of him picking me up by his pinky and throwing me over his shoulder!
Yes, Yes… Mr. Gabe is quite yummy!
And his chemistry is Madison (who isn’t as boring as I thought) is palpable.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
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…
Book Heaux Rating: 5 Stars!
This was one of my most anticipated book for the summer…. And let me just say… I was NOT disappointed! I, like everyone else desperately needed some Emily and Gavin closure. I was seriously traumatized after Collide… Like, really traumatized… A hotmessy, mess. My friend Felicia has a voicemail of me blubbering like a fool right after I finished Collide.
Pulse filled the void….it answered the questions… It made me cry… And in the end, my heart sigh. if you’re a Gavin and Emily fan please don’t worry, she doesn’t torture us too much. You will absolutely feel better once you read this.
The book world is a better place because of Authors like Gail McHugh. And I can not wait to see what she comes up with next.

Book Dame’s Rating 4.5 Stars
I love this story!! I loved the characters, I loved the writing, I loved humor!! This is a book I think everyone would enjoy. I would agree it has a little 50 shades vibe, but I think Wallbanger is a better comparison. Hot, funny and a great story too. I was giggling, and sighing through the whole book!! Not to mention fanning myself! Noah is a dream, hot sexy! Delanie is a hoot, I so want to be her friend!! The only reason it didn’t get 5 stars is the cliffhanger, I wasn’t happy about that!! I mean I just meet them and I love them, why oh why can’t I have more of them. I really feel sorry for all of you because A Million Dirty Secrets doesn’t come out until August 27!! I don’t know how you can stand it!! You all will love this book, so mark your calendar and pre order it!!! I promise you will all want it as soon as it goes up!!! I mean who wouldn’t love Noah a hot sexy cocky rich man that gets challenged by sweet innocent Lanie, haha!!! You will love it!!!
And Because I’m a stalker, Look what I found on C.L. Paker’s blog

GREED is a Mature Young Adult/ New Adult Contemporary novel and is the 2nd book in the Seven Deadly Sky Series. It is due to be released in Fall 2013.
Gather ‘round, love, because I want you. I want what you have, I want what you don’t have, I want more of what I already have. I want. But if you so much as ask for something in return, go ahead and walk away. Know if you want to play in my world, it’s every man for themselves and the weak become mine. Leeches will be obliterated because I make it my job to destroy them. I protect what’s mine and I take what’s yours…because that’s what I do. I want.
My story will not endear me to you and, frankly, I could care less if it does because I’m in this for the money and nothing else. There’s nothing redeeming about me. I’m a corrupt, money hungry, immoral asshole from Los Angeles. I’m every man’s worst nightmare and every girl’s fantasy.
I’m Spencer Blackwell…And this is the story about how I went from the world’s most coveted guy to the guy no one wanted around and why I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

ABOUT VAIN (Book 1 in the Seven Deadly Series):
If you’re looking for a story about a good, humble girl, who’s been hurt by someone she thought she could trust, only to find out she’s not as vulnerable as she thought she was and discovers an empowering side of herself that falls in love with the guy who helps her find that self, blah, blah, blah…then you’re gonna’ hate my story.
Because mine is not the story you read every time you bend back the cover of the latest trend novel. It’s not the “I can do anything, now that I’ve found you/I’m misunderstood but one day you’ll find me irresistible because of it” tale. Why? Because, if I was being honest with you, I’m a complete witch. There’s nothing redeeming about me. I’m a friend using, drug abusing, sex addict from Los Angeles. I’m every girlfriend’s worst nightmare and every boy’s fantasy.
I’m Sophie Price…And this is the story about how I went from the world’s most envied girl to the girl no one wanted around and why I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

About Fisher Amelie:
Fisher Amelie is the author of The Leaving Series, Callum & Harper and Thomas & January. She began her writing career as a copywriter for an internet marketing company wherein one of their client’s said, ‘Hey! You’re funny. You should write books’. Which in turn she said, ‘Hey, get out of here! This is the lady’s restroom.’ While washing her hands and the embarrassment from her face, she thought they may have had a valid point. So, she took the thousands of hours of writing stories growing up, tucked them into her pocket and began writing and writing and writing.
