Review: Amber to Ashes by Gail McHugh

From the New York Times bestselling author of Collide and Pulse comes a gritty new novel about a shattered young woman who unexpectedly falls for two best friends as she struggles to overcome the trauma of her tormented childhood.

They were a storm I never saw coming, an unforeseen heartbreak on the edge of a dangerous cliff.

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 event changes everything, shattering each of their lives…and Amber isn’t sure she can come back from it.

Review by Jennifer

It has been a week since I read this book and needless to say I still have a book hangover from it! YES it was that good!! Due to Gail’s previous books Collide & Pulse being some of my top reads I anticipated this book to be right up there with them as well but I have to say Amber to Ashes way exceeded all my expectations and simply blew me away.

I was drawn into this story right from the very first page. From there is just intensified. These characters pulled me right into their world and twisted my head and stomach in knots. Both men in this story definitely had their swoon worthy moments, they were both amazing men in their own ways and I could easily see how Amber was drawn to both of them. Hell, I was drawn to both of them! There were times when I had those gut feelings like no, don’t do it but then I would be so torn because then I would feel like it’s alright you can do it, just this one time. I know that’s terrible but honestly I felt like that. They are both very intoxicating men.

I loved everything about this book, the writing is nothing short of amazing. I really can’t stress that enough. The story is heartwarming, heart pounding and very intense at times and let’s not forget about the hot as hell moments mixed up in between all of this AND trust me when I say the moments are HOT!

This was an amazing, amazing, amazing story and for most of it I wasn’t sure which side I was on but in the end I did end up picking a side. Which side will you be on? Go read this book now!

THIS BOOK! OoooMmmmmGeeeeeeeeee! There aren't enough stars in the sky to give this book the rating it deserves.

If you only read one book this year, for the love of God READ.THIS.BOOK! You thought Collide & Pulse were amazing?!...maaaannn, that was just Gail's warmup. Amber to Ashes will BLOW YOUR MIND!!! Words will never convey how much I LOVED reading it! I dove in to this baby only knowing it was a love triangle, hello! SOLD!
Sit down, buckle up, grab a bag of Twizzlers and hang on tight, you're going to be in for one hell of an epic ride.

It's intense, it's dark, it's sooo hot it should be sold with a pair of undies ;) .. it's just EVERYTHING...EVERYTHING!

Every decadent word written will consume you, devour you while you devour it and leave you lusting for more...raw to the core.

Amber to Ashes is simply unforgettable, a literary masterpiece. 

Review by Amanda

Amber to ashes is one of my favorite reads of 2015. What an amazing book! It draws you in from the first page and keeps you on the edge of your seat for the entire book!! I love love love, love triangles and this book has the best and hottest!!! It is exceptionally well written. I found myself reading it every second I got even in the car when my husband was driving. I could NOT put it down!! Usually it is easy to pick who you want to win in the love triangle but in this book Brock and Ryder are both so hawt and have such different qualities it's hard to choose. I can see why Amber has such a hard time!! I loved the angst, sex, heartache, and suspense in this book, like I said I loved every minute of it!!! And then the cliffy that's a whole other story!!! GAIL I hope to God you are writing as I'm writing this cause I need to know what happens!!!! Highly recommend this book to everyone!!! I still have a book hangover a week later!!!
