 amber-to-ashes-9781476766010_hrThey 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.


HOLY AMAZEBALLS!! This book has left me speechless.  I have been a huge Gail McHugh fan from the very beginning but HOLY MOLY this one takes the cake.  This was the type of book that once I went in, I couldn’t come out until I was done.  But at the same time I was torn, do I savor the read or devour the words.  Brock, Ryder and Amber are seriously addicting characters.  Each with their own demons they make for a troubled bunch.  I was so torn throughout because this is one of those love triangles that you honestly can not pick who you like best.  About half way through the book I got scared because I knew what ever the outcome was I was going to be devastated.  I LOVED them all that much.  There are some twists and turns in this book that I did not see coming and some seriously panty melting scenes that will leave you hot and bothered.  I laughed, I cried, I sat at the edge of my seat never knowing what would come next.   This is the type of book that will stick with you forever.  There is such a brutal honesty to it that it is sure to touch your soul.  The characters have taken a little piece of me with them and I will forever be touched by them.  While this is a book one in a two book series, I was ok with the ending.  While I was left gutted and with so many questions, I also was at piece.  Don’t get me wrong, I am dying for more but there was just something about it that left me ok.  I am in a serious book hang over from this one and I have to thank Atria and Gail McHugh for giving me the opportunity to review this.  I know that nothing I say or write will ever do this book justice. It truly is a special book.
