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.

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…

Okay Read

If you could sum up Pulse in three words, what would they be?

Tension filled, sexy

Who was your favorite character and why?

Gavin. He is just too good to be true, so i'll take him. Ha ha ha. Thank you

What about Mary Kowal’s performance did you like?

It is very good. She was able to mimic Gavin convincinly.

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

When Gavin was apprenhensive the baby might not be his.

Any additional comments?

Too much sex though. Almost overshadows the plot.

Gavin rocks our world!

I just listened to this series for the 2nd time and loved it even more.
Gavin is a keeper. Can we clone him?
Olivia needs her own book!
The narrator did a great job with the many characters.

Enjoyed this

Any additional comments?

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.
