AMBER to ASHES
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR
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.

♥MY REVIEW♥ by Colleen
Just….wow! I feel like I have been anticipating a new book from Gail for so long I was afraid that the build up wasn’t going to match my feelings towards the book. Boy, was I wrong. I think my expectations were exceeded and then some.
A story of pain, retribution, trust, addiction, mistakes, lust and love, Amber to Ashes stirs a melting pot of feelings into a recipe of awesomeness. The love triangle between Amber, Brock, and Ryder is one that will shred your heart to pieces. Both men love Amber for different reasons; Amber has never had the heart of one person, let alone two. She is greedy in her need for that love, which makes her choice between the two men almost impossible.
Honestly, the only reason that Amber to Ashes is not a five star for me is Amber’s drug use. I felt that considering how her parents died, she should have paused a little longer in beginning her use or not done it at all. I understand this was part of her journey, but I felt that in her desperation to finally fit with someone and be loved, she lost sight of her values and who she wants to ultimately be – a better person then those that she was abandoned by.
Gail did a fantastic job crafting this book. The characters were multi-dimensional, the story line flowed perfectly and without interruption or needless meandering. Another amazing read by Gail McHugh!!!
