Amber to Ashes by Gail McHugh Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway





They 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.

Review (1)

My first thought when I got to the end of Amber to Ashes was “Gail McHugh is an evil genius!”  ATA is full of angst and is darker than I expected from Gail, and I loved every minute of it.  In this story, Amber finds herself torn between two men, Ryder and Brock, and trust me when I say that you will be as well.  I kept going back and forth between who I thought she should be with until one of them pulled away and completely stole my heart.

What grabbed my attention the most was that the storyline went in a completely different direction than I was expecting.  There were so many twists and turns, and just so many things that I didn’t see coming.  I was completely drawn in until the very end.  And that ending!  Amber to Ashes has the queen mother of all cliffhangers.  I can honestly say that book 2 is one of my most anticipated sequels ever.  A definite must-read.  4 1/2 well-deserved stars.
