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.

Sarah's 4 Star Review:

I absolutely loved Amber to Ashes by Gail McHugh. This is the first book in Gail's Torn Hearts series so this book does end in a cliffhanger. This is a highly emotional story that is very dark and gritty. If you don't like love triangles this book is definitely not for you.

Amber Moretti has been through a lot in her young life. She heads off to college for a fresh start and never expects to attract the attention of two hot guys. She tries to avoid both men but they are both very determined to get to know her. Her past has caused her to be fearful of commitment or letting anyone get close enough to see the real her. What will happen when these to determined men keep pushing her to open up to them? What will happen when she has to chose between the two? I guess you will have to read to find out.

“I fell for the two loves of my life when I was nineteen. Yes, two. Plural. More than one. Immoral? Maybe. I say undeniable.”
Brock and Ryder are best friends and they both are immediately attracted to Amber. Brock comes across as a very charming guy who never gives up. He  has a bad boy side to him that he tries very hard to keep hidden. He will do whatever it takes to break down Amber's walls and to get her to let him in. Ryder screams bad boy with his tattoos and piercings but underneath it he has a huge heart. He pisses Amber off the first time they met but there is something about him that keeps pulling Amber in. What will happen when Amber gives her heart to only one of these two men? How will the other one react to the news of not being picked by the girl he has fallen hard for?

"I need you a hundred times more than I need my next breath, a thousand times more than I need my next heartbeat, and a million times more than I need to wake up to the sun hanging in the sky.”

I really loved the connection between the three main characters in this story. The secondary characters added lots of depth to this well written storyline. This book had me hooked from the very first page and I loved the emotional rollercoaster Gail took me on. All I can say is that this is a must read story and I will be not so patiently waiting to see what happens next in this beautifully written story.
