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.


This is such a difficult book for me to review. I can't tell you if I loved it or hated it. I can only tell you that the feels, God the feels, we're so real in this book. You can't go into this book looking for a happily ever after either. It's just not going to happen.. But you can go into this story knowing that it will give you thrills, chills, and a massive MASSIVE book hangover. 

Gail McHugh has done it again with Amber to Ashes. It was brilliant, dark, masterful and so so I don't even know how to explain it. Be forwarded, this book is M/F/M. It has one wicked love triangle between two best friends and the broken and dark girl who captures both their souls.

I loved Ryder. He stole my heart from the very beginning. His cocky sure won attitude and his demeanor making him all the more appealing. Brock.. Brock I didn't love. It was just one thing. About him, it was just him as a whole. Amber, our heroine, was such a complex character. Tragedy struck her life to make her is closed off, self destructive girl that only used her body to make her feel something.

His story took so many turns that I just didn't know what would happen next but it held my attention. The ending though, God chills... Chills. It left me wanting and hope for a good outcome. This story was just a disaster, but it such a good way. Gail McHugh killed the suspense aspect of this book. Now the wait begins for the next one.
