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 you move forward when every breath is nothing more than a constant ache? Living becomes an 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, but 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…Tick-Tock…

The ending was PERFECTION. Loved loved loved it. 

I can’t tell you how relieved I was to finally get my hands on Pulse after the gut-wrenching cliffhanger at the end of Collide. What a crazy, emotional rollercoaster ride this has been! In Collide, I was consumed by Emily and Gavin’s story. I hated and loved that book. I was struck speechless by the cliffhanger. I loved this book even more than the first one. I didn't know that would be possible considering that the first one was real great. It didn't have much angst (thank goodness) but I can say it was sweeter and more romantic. And the steam was over the moon. Believe me when I say there was a lot of “shmexy” scenes. Pulse started right were Collide ended, when Emily finally got some sense in her head and left Dillon. Emily goes after Gavin, but he wasn't so accessible, and she realizes that getting him back was going to be worth the fight. Emily & Gavin do find their way back to each other, but they don't have it easy. Major events happen throughout this book and so no spoilers here. I'm being vague because their love story needs to be savored. I really loved the progression of everything. It was well paced, the sex scenes very erotic and captivating. If you loved Gavin Blake in Collide, you will fall hopelessly and head over heels in love with him in Pulse. His words and his actions will make you melt. Gavin and Emily are not fighting against their feelings for one another, they’re fighting for their happiness together. Their journey is hard, complicated, challenging, breathtaking, and it smolders with passion. Emily and Gavin' face a lot of complications and challenges but, it’s an extraordinary conclusion to this story. Prepare to be enthralled, surprised, passionate, heart-mending, and deeply emotional …it’s all you can ask for and more!  So, I can honestly say that this was an amazing ending for a perfect series. I loved the conclusion, loved how the characters ending, loved everything. On a side note, this book tries to deliver a different message within. It's about moving forward. It's about fighting back. Basically the theme that every abused woman out there shouldn't blame herself! she should fight back, and get out! It was very powerful message. So the author really focuses on abuse and this subject in particular is very sensitive. I thought the author was sucessful in delivering her message in sensitive way. The love between Emily Cooper & Gavin Blake was even stronger if that was even possible, their lives kind of collides together. There has been so many things in the story, so many events. I guarantee that you will LOVE this book.

Narrator almost ruined it for me

I am going to review Collide and Pulse together here since they are both available on Audible. I was glad for that because the cliffhanger in Collide was frustrating and sad.

As a love story, my heart resonated with this one because I, too, had a love at first sight experience that is now into its 40th year of marriage. That's about where the similarity between my life and Emily's life ends, but it was enough for me to know that while romance novels are generally escapism, sometimes there are some very real aspects to the stories they tell.

Overall, the story was satisfying because I like good to overcome evil and HEA's. Even though there were moments in this story that were frustrating or made me roll my eyes, there was enough realism to the story that made it a cut above the typical rich young billionaire hero falls in love with beautiful but broken heroine.

There were some details in the story that didn't make sense. Here a few examples. If Emily (who definitely did not come from money) lived in CO, why did she go to Ohio State for a teaching degree? Likewise, why did her wealthy roommate/friend Olivia from NYC go to Ohio State for a degree relating to art? Why did filthy rich Gavin live in a fabulous penthouse that didn't have security at the building entrance that would prevent people from just showing up at his front door? These are minor details (and there were more), but they bugged me nonetheless. Stuff like that detracts from my enjoyment of a story.

The story flowed fairly well, but when Emily had an awful nightmare, I thought the author dropped the ball by not transitioning into that scene. It was just dropped into the storyline in a way that felt very manipulative. I thought she could have handled it better. The story had enough emotional highs and lows without that particular flashback to the original TV series "Dallas" to be thrown in there.

As for character development, the hero (Gavin) was very well fleshed out. A reader would have to be brain dead not to fall in love with him. Likewise for the villain, which rhymes with his name, Dillon. Of course, there was nothing likable about him; it was very easy to hate him. Very black and white dynamic with the hero and villain. I have mixed feelings about Emily. I think her relationship with her mother needed more detail in order to make Emily more empathetic.

The narrator was pretty bad. She did a fairly good job when she was reading in the 3rd person or doing Emily's voice. But that's about the only praise I can give her. Almost all the other characters' voices were so annoying that it almost ruined the books for me. Her NY accent was absurd. I wanted to push pencils in my ears whenever Trevor or Fallon were speaking. There were also numerous mispronunciations of words and glitches in the sentence or dialogue flow that made her narration of the story less than enjoyable.

The sound quality was pretty bad, too. For example, I could hear the narrator inhaling deeply between sentences in many places. Somebody on the production team should have made sure that the sound was properly mixed.

Lastly, since these books are under $10 each, don't use credits to purchase them. Paying cash for them is more economical, and despite my criticisms, I think the books are worth the money.
