Publisher's Summary

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.

    4.5 stars- I enjoyed this second book. Although I wish I would have just read it and not purchased the audio version. Once again loved Gavin and wanted to beat down Dillon. There were a few twists in this book which made it even better.

    Story
    "I have re-listen to this book three times"
    Would you listen to Pulse again? Why?

    yes and I have. listen to Collide first than this one and you will know why.


    What does Mary Kowal bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I felt the sadness, the happiness, the joy


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Never give up on true love


    Any additional comments?

    I have re-listen to this and Collide three times. It is a true love story with the ups and
    downs,crazyness ,sadness that we all go thru.

    "Missed Book 1... missed a lot!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Didn't read book one and quickly figured out that in order to get into Pulse you must start there. Apparently all the drama and character development happened in book one... I'm sure it was great and recommend readers start there and Pulse will make much more sense.

    Story
    "Great Sequel."

    The narrator does a bit better in this one and the story is truly entertaining. Gail McHugh does go over board with the sappy overly long declarations of love. However with what Emily & Gavin go through to be together it's their love that can help them make it through the coming challenging moments. Towards the end things go a bit strange but if you over look those moments I believe your love the book as much as I do.

    Story
    "Smexy to the end"

    This book is the conclusion to Collide, which I enjoyed. I felt like this was a good ending to the series. I really enjoyed some of the plot twists. Even though you could guess what was coming it still kept your interest. I have to say that the smexy talk got to be a bit overdone. I like romantic dialogue but 3/4 way through you were say alright I know you are madly in love and that he is your entire world. Emily and Gavin are drawn together from the first and I think that the author makes you feel their passion and need for one another. Gavin is strong but also compassionate. He has a volatile temper when it comes to protecting Emily. Emily is not a weak woman. Although she is dependent upon Gavin for support she has endured a lot and holds her own. I like that Emily's and Gavin's friend are in this book as well. Fallon and Trevor are a unique couple. Olivia is a hoot and crazy. There are tense moments that keep you listening. I still feel that the narrator did a good job but some of the voices were just annoying to me. I like other narrator's better but overall Marsy Kowal did ok. I think this is a good solid listen. The two books are long and so you feel you get a credit worth. I would recommend this book .

    "The Perfect Sequel! I was holding my breath!"

    You thought you knew what was coming, especially from the flavor of the reviews....but Gail puts a huge twist in here that had my heart breaking, literally! Gavin and Emily seem to have it all but their world crashes! I have to have a HEA and you gave it to me! Thank you Thank you Gail for your masterful storytelling! I like both Gavin and Emily's POV's, I love your style. I won't forget Collide and Pulse and they'll remain on my Favorite's list forever!

    "Great book!!"
    Where does Pulse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was amazing!!! However, the narrators voice got on my nerves a tiny bit with some of the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gavin....Why can't I find a guy like that!!


    What does Mary Kowal bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Not really...refer to the first question


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I don't want to give the book away!!

    Story
    "Special kind of love"
    What made the experience of listening to Pulse the most enjoyable?

    Just the deep love that Gavin had for Emily. The way he expressed it and fought for for her. He was truly her knight in shining armor. I also liked the development of Emily growing into her maturity and finally taking a stand.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That Emily finally ended up with a good guy.


    Which character – as performed by Mary Kowal – was your favorite?

    Hands down Gavin. He is a man any woman would be lucky to have.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    ****spoiler alert***** I almost cried during the breath chapter. I couldn't imagine her having to go on without her guy by her side to help her ith her little man


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it. Sad that it came to end.

    Story
    "The Californians?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    More plot or interests by the main characters, maybe. It became boring when the 2 main characters just incredibly loved each other with over-the-top drama/emotion. There was no development of their relationship beyond the initial physical attraction.

    I wasn't a fan of the narrator. I think that she had a weird pronunciation for some words..."restront" instead of restaurant. Also a couple of the characters had some weird voices that kept reminding me of the SNL skit "The Californians"... and come to think of it the content was kind of similar. Over drama?


    What was most disappointing about Gail McHugh’s story?

    I had to stop, it just wouldn't stop sapping on about their special love. There was no other reason for me to like the characters...any of them.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Oh I think the drama in the voice matched the story...it just was boring


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't call this smexy...if smexy means smart and sexy. I would say it's shalexy...shallow and sexy.
