Overview

“Do you know how scary it is to want something so bad you’re willing to change your whole life for it?”

Emily Cooper is ready to risk everything to be with the man who has consumed her thoughts and dreams since the fateful day they met. Unraveling fast, she can only cling to the hope that Gavin Blake still wants her.

Nursing his wounded heart, Gavin has cut himself off from society and retreated into a self-destructive, mind-numbing world. Emily isn’t used to being the strong one, but she’ll have to find the daring and confidence within to fight for their love and bring Gavin back from the edge—even if it means losing herself to their all-consuming, pulse-pounding passion. A New York Times bestseller, Pulse is the unforgettable conclusion to the story of Emily and Gavin that began with Collide.

    DISAPPOINTING!!!!

    Chapter after chapter describing the sex they had and then chapter after chapter Gavin and Emily gave very long speeches about how much they loved each other. Over twenty chapters saying basically the same thing. It got very old, very fast. There was no need for a second book. A few chapters could have been added to COLLIDE to include their happy ever after. This book was fluff!

    Loved it

    I laughed, yelled and cried my eyes out and almost through my nook when I thought the book was headed a certain way. Glad I kept reading. Sad that its come to an end. Just really felt connected to this series for some reason.

    Boring

    Boring and slow, that's what this second book was. Chapters of boring sex and cheesy dialogs and a ton of thoughts that were inconsequential and distracting. And then the dramas, mixed in the book here and there, but were for the most part unnecessary. So bad that there is one chapter dedicated to some major drama that ends up being a dream. What a prank! It is as if the author had no ideas for the book and had to write stupid chapters to fill the pages. I skipped through pages at a time. And to make it worst, the female character is as whiny and weak as in book 1 and I could not understand why the guy Gavin could be so in love with her. They had their happy ending but as a reader, it was a torture to go through their boring story. Cannot recommend the books.

    For me, both of these books; Collide and Pulse, are the best boo

    For me, both of these books; Collide and Pulse, are the best books I have ever read. I just felt very connected to the characters. Every single part of both books felt so real. Ahh, I laughed, cried, and fell in love with Gavin and Emily. What a fantastic book. I could read them over and over again! A++++++++++

    This series would have been much, much better as one book. It was almost torture to get through because it was so repetative. The dream scene was rediculous. It was so obvious the author was struggling to continue with a storyline that should have concluded in book one. I waited to read the first book until the next one was available because I hate to wait for a long period of time to finish a book. These authors are cheating their fans with this greed. I would much rather pay twice as much for one complete book and I believe this will eventually hurt their sales. I will not buy another book by this author.

    In the second book to the Collide series, PULSE continues right where COLLIDE leaves off, so it’s definitely important that you read Collide first. Emily has made the biggest mistake of her life and in the process she has broken the heart of the man she loved. Now she is seeking for forgiveness, but when Gavin disappears and is unable to be reached, she starts to panic and guilt slowly begins to consume her.

    PULSE is better than its predecessor. The writing is better and tighter, the characters are smarter, and the romance is growing steadily. I was immediately drawn into this storyline and found it impossible to stop until I finished.

    There’s something addictive about this series. I couldn’t help but root for Gavin and Emily as they tried to find their way to happiness. The angst is far more headier in this installment and there’s a good reason for it. There is nothing I hate more than having characters mope around about something insubstantial. But if you’ve read the previous book in the series, then you know exactly why Gavin is acting the way he is.

    Emily’s character in the last book grated on me, but I could understand what the author was trying to accomplish. In this book, I liked Emily’s character a lot better and her grovelling and the guilt she felt redeemed her in my eyes.

    Dillon is still very much in this picture despite the fact that Emily beats the crap out of him when she tells him she has had enough. The twist at the end is fabulous and is sure to get a bunch of shocked gasps from the readers. McHugh doesn’t let up on the drama and it sure is one crazy ride!

    I’ve totally claiming Gavin Blake for my hottie harem. He has proven he is worthy in this book! Those sex scenes were hot, though I would go without all the proclamations of love. It was laid on a little too heavy after awhile. You don’t want to sweeten it too much where the treat leads to some cavities.

    All in all, I liked this book more than the first book in the series.

    Just OK

    I couldn't wait to read the sequel to Pulse... the first half was very good. The second half seemed repetitious - I was a little disappointed.

    Well I thought that the story line was good, but the never ending undying love was a bit to much to take. I felt like she needed a lot of filler that she didn't have enough of a story to tell. It could of easily been rapped up in one novel. Overall a very good author just tried to stretch out a story beyond it's barriers! I would definitely read more from this author though.

    Don't waste your time...

    Just finished pulse, after reading both books I must say I wish I had never wasted my time and money on these. The first book Collide was long and quite frankly boring. Against my better judgement I went ahead and bought Pulse just to see if it was any better. I found myself just flipping through several pages trying to get to the end, just to see how they ended up.
    It was long and boring and fell very flat! Don' t waste your time or money on this one...trust me!

    Happy Ending

    I loved both Collide and Pulse so much!! I have to put this series up there with Fifty Shades. I was surprised on how Collide ended and needed to find what was going to happen next!!!!!! Pulse had me on the edge of my sit the whole time. Read in the middle of the night and yelled at a certain "part" waking my husband:/ Overall Gail did an awesome job and I appreciated her message. It was something different and i enjoyed it very much. Thank you!!
