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…
Tick-Tock…

As true lover of pink fairy tales, i must say this one is right at the top of the list of the most amazing stories ever.
I mean, i’ve read around 700 romance books so far and i can only remember three that showed me how true love looks like. Three heroes that love their girl with every fiber of their being for all eternity. Only 3 of 700 and Gavin Blake is one of them.

I was starting Chapter 5 of the first book (Collide) when I couldn’t handle the pressure so I went on amazon, bought the second book (this one) and read the epilogue. 🙄

As you might already know, this is a love triangle. There’s Emily and her douchebag, asshole, jerk, scum of the earth boyfriend, Dillon and his friend, Gavin Blake. Gavin and Emily meet by chance and it’s love at first sight. You know, usually it’s hard to explain in words that feeling. Not many authors can pull that one of and convince us that their characters actually fall in love wihin seconds. Gail McHugh does. Through out these two books she makes us believe in fairytales and true love bigger than the Universe. So basically, Dillon doesn’t stand a chance, nor he deserves it, Emily makes her own mistakes that might make you angry and want to punch her, but in the end, when you see the whole picture, i feel like none of these matter, because there’s not a single smallest kind of doubt that Emily and Gavin should be together.

In case i forget, Gavin Blake is the most amazing hero. His my new number one fictional boyfriend, out of the 710 before him.

“I want it all, Emily. I want to spend my nights holding hands with you,” he breathed the words into her ear. “I want the all-day texting.” He kissed her temple and caressed her cheek. “I want the laughing and the forehead kisses.” He softly ran his lips over her forehead. “I want the date nights, the movie watching, and the breakfast making.” He dragged his hands through her hair, his teeth tugging gently at her bottom lip. “I want the late-night drives, the sunset watching, the screaming, the yelling, and the crying.” Still kissing her, he smiled against her mouth. “I know I’ll definitely want the make up sex that comes after the screaming and the crying. In want the good, the bad and in between. All of it is what’s going to make us amazing together.”

That being said, get off your high horse (I know many of you have a huge problem with love triangles), read this one and tell me it’s not right and not how it’s supposed to be.
