A missed first encounter....
Colliding with a second chance....
On the heels of graduating college and trying to cope with her mother's death, Emily Cooper moves to New York City for a fresh start.
While harboring secrets of his own, Dillon Parker takes care of Emily through her grief. Knowing he can't live without her by his side, he's sweet, thoughtful, and everything Emily has ever wanted in a man.
Until she meets Gavin Blake - a rich and notorious playboy who is dangerously sexy and charming as hell. Emily tries to deny the instant connection she feels, but Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome is not inclined to let go so easily. Recovering from his own painful past, Gavin will stop at nothing to win Emily over.
This unexpected encounter compels Emily to question her decisions, forcing her to make a choice that will destroy friendships, shatter hearts, and forever change her life.

This story was romantic and it took Emily long enough to see the light, gosh we all need a Gavin. Narration of the guys was poor. Looking forward to the next instalment in Pulse.
I only finished the book because i already bought it nearly 1 year ago together with the 2nd book.
The story started interesting but continued predictable und the weak heroine made me suffer all the way long.
Emily either throws up or has tears in the eyes.
Too many not hot but clinical sex scenes, i would have prefered e deeper developement of the story.
Could have been a good story - pity.
This was her first for me.
I love you------I'm in love with you
This was a surprise , this was a great story. I was wonderful to see M open her eyes and her heart to the right person. If you listen to this one you have to listen to her second one to see how it all ends.
I had to force myself to stick to this book because at times the narrator had just some horrible voices for the characters. Truly Bad. Then I was able to overlook the horrible accents & voices because the story was really good. It was a bit slow moving at first but then I just couldn't get enough. The author does a great job of keeping you on your toes with the love triangle. Right til the very end your heart will race wondering who will Emily chose, Gavin or Dillon.
The synopsis of this book is deceiving. Here's what it's really about: sexual abuse, mental abuse, really poor personal choices, poor communication skill. Pretty much being the biggest doormat EVER! I hated the first 5 chapters, but I continued to listen, waiting for the story line promised. Huge disappointment! And then you are gonna just end the book hoping I'll buy the next one. Keep hoping, I can't believe this rubbish was published. White Trash Beautiful was better than this book and that one was seriously depressing. Don't waste you time or money on this one.
Troubled. Lustful. Intriguing.
Gavin showing what a true gentleman is all about and not being afraid to go out on a limb for the girl he wanted.
I haven't heard Mary previously but she did well playing believable female and male characters. I wouldn't mind hearing her read again.
When Gavin stood up to his long time for the sake of his love? There were other moments that made me angry that Emily lacked self confidence and self worth.
Not what I expected. It was the right amount of drama, sex, conflict and over powering love!
this is well worth the credit
reading with a coffee in my hands
I couldn't enjoy the story because of the rediciulous voices.
I'm not sure.
The voices reminded me of cartoons. Flinstones came to mind.
I got half way through the story but had to stop. I will get the ebook instead. I think it has promise but I was too distracted by the narrator.
Say something about yourself!
This is one of those books that really ticked me off. The first 75% I was in love, ready to sing its praises, to download the sequel in actual reading format because its not available in audio yet....thank goodness I waited.
The things I loved were:
1. Alpha males galore
2. Totally hot scenes
3. I really respected the drama...in the beginning....the female lead lost her mom to breast cancer, her boyfriend helped her emotionally and physically, he even held the moms hair while she threw up....so no matter what she feels for another guy how do you ditch the man your dying mom approved of???
Then the writer just flipped a switch, the wonderful boyfriend becomes anything but wonderful.....how does a man who held a dying woman's hair while she was sick complain to a waiter about a crying baby? Huh?!?!? Then the 24 year old super hot model like female lead never had a boyfriend before this guy? Huh?!?!?
Throw in some fake made up drama towards 85% through and I turned it off with an hour ago.....ugh! Ruined a great book and ticked me off! If you like fake drama go for it, at least the hot scenes were hot.
Yes; a great love story from the beginning to the end
Well they were all great and I really don't want to give away anything but I think the part of the park and the NY baseball game
There were so many that I could recall
Yes finished it from the time I started it
Everything was great but I was a little disappointed at the end. Yes it says which way it is going but I would have actually liked to hear it and feel the ending that every person wants when reading this book
