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 ou move forward when every breath is nothing more than a constant ache? Living becomes and 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, bust 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…
I have to hand it to Gail, sequel's are just so hard to follow and after Collide rocked our worlds, Gail had her work cut out for her in Pulse. I think that Gail pulled Pulse of wonderfully, although parts were a bit anticlimactic for me personally. This is one of those series were I have become so invested in the characters, watching them evolve and grow, I felt like I was living every emotion with them. 4 stars
"Our past is imperfect, but our future's breathtaking."
Pulse starts off exactly where Collide left off. Emily walks out of Dillon's apartment and his life, deciding to call of the wedding and to follow her heart. Of course her heart leads her to Gavin, but Emily's too little too late. Gavin had laid his heart on the line at Emily's engagement party only to have it ripped from his chest. After this happens, Gavin heads out of town and away from real life to take a break and heal his wounds. Gavin has no idea what's going on at home, he avoids all phone calls and contact from everyone. When Emily and Gavin reunite, it's Emily's turn to lay her heart on the line......but is she too late? Will the man that she shattered forgive her, and can they move forward and forget the past or will the past rear its ugly head and compromise their future.
"Please forgive me for fighting against us in the beginning, Gavin. Please forgive me for not fighting for us when I knew we were supposed to be together. Forgive me for not fighting for us when I knew we were supposed to be together."
This is a definite must read series. Collide and Pulse are exhilarating, breathtaking, and dramatic.....an unforgettable love story. Pulse was the perfect ending to Gavin and Emily's story....we really couldn't ask for more of a beautiful conclusion. Can't wait to see what Gail has up her sleeve next!
"We were written for one another, and I wouldn't change one line in our romance novel. The good, the bad, the in between. It's ours. We own it."

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.
