~Cover Reveals & Signed Giveaway for PULSE & A New Cover for COLLIDE both by Gail McHugh~


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…

A missed first encounter…

Colliding with a second chance…

On the heels of graduating college and trying to cope with her mother’s death, Emily Cooper moves to New York City for a fresh start.

While harboring secrets of his own, Dillon Parker takes care of Emily through her grief. Knowing he can’t live without her by his side, he’s sweet, thoughtful, and everything Emily has ever wanted in a man.

Until she meets Gavin Blake—a rich and notorious playboy who is dangerously sexy and charming as hell. Emily tries to deny the instant connection she feels, but Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome is not inclined to let go so easily. Recovering from his own painful past, Gavin will stop at nothing to win Emily over. 

This unexpected encounter compels Emily to question her decisions, forcing her to make a choice that will destroy friendships, shatter hearts, and forever change her life.

About the author - Gail’s info:
I've always been a lover of writing, but mostly dabbled in creating poetry while raising my three beautiful children. I am grateful my husband of fifteen years has supported me—albeit sometimes kicking and screaming—as I pursue this "hobby" of mine. Without his help, writing would be an impossible endeavor.

In late June 2012, I felt an urgent tug of my pen, and I began writing one of my first novels, Collide. Although I thought it might never see the light of day, it gave me the courage to plunge headfirst onto a path I had never considered before.

~My 5 STAR REVIEW of Beautiful Broken Rules by Kimberly Lauren~Highly Recommend It!!

Beautiful Broken RulesBeautiful Broken Rules by Kimberly Lauren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I friggin loved this book! Yes, it is a new adult, college romance so I will tell you that up front, BUT, trust me when I say you will fall in love with the characters as well as the story!

First we meet Em and Quinn roommates, best friends and sisters. Em is, shall we say very promiscuous. She knows it, lives it and accepts it.

I've accepted who I am. The girl who will never become serious about anyone, who will enjoy life, have fun with guys along the way and never get her heart broken.

So my first thought was why? What happened to her to make her feel this way thus drawing me into the story from the get go. Em has 3 rules she abides by and they are

I don't sleep with anyone that I know my friends like, I don't sleep with any one's boyfriend, and I never sleep with someone more than three times.

These rules have worked and do work well for her until she meets motorcycle boy, Jaxon Riley aka Jax.

Oh let me just say I have nothing but love for Jaxon as well as his identical twin brother Jace. They were friends of Cole's from back home and decided to move in with him which just so happens to be right next door! Fun times!! Did I mention Jaxon and Cole are football players?

There wasn't anything I didn't love about Jaxon, or Jace and even Cole for that matter, but I especially loved it when Jaxon called Em, Beautiful and by her full name, Emerson! I gave Em credit, even though I didn't like it, when she was completely honest with him about her ways and was dead set on not changing her rules for anyone, including him.

"You're okay with this, even knowing that I will at some point sleep with someone else?"

However, the more time they spent together whether it was studying or just hanging out together, Emerson's walls started crumbling down. The only frustrating part was the fact that she wouldn't talk to him and tell him WHY?? Try as he might, Jaxon tried to understand, he tried not to become possessive over her but only time would tell if they could both abide by her rules.

"Please stop running from me," he whispered. "Please stop trying to catch me," I said getting up to leave.

The relationship they had developed became intense, emotional, loving and frustrating. Once I understood what had happened in Emerson's past I was >able to understand why.

"Emerson, tell me what you want."............."I don't know how."

Can these two work their way through or will Jaxon end up breaking her heart?

The story is mainly about Jaxon and Em but Jace, Quinn and Cole all played an important role. Quinn and Cole later became an item and I can't wait for their story as well as Jace's story.

This was an awesome new adult romance that drew me in and I enjoyed every intense minute of it! Kimberly Lauren did a fantastic job on her first novel and I anxiously await her future ones! I highly recommend this book!!
