Rowan Platts is addicted to success.
When she’s presented with the chance to work on a top secret project fronted by her idol, renowned virologist Dr. Margot Miller, Rowan signs her life away without second thought. The realization she’s gotten in over her head comes only after the subject of their study is revealed: a boy with a bad attitude and an uninhibited taste for human blood.
He’s a medical anomaly. Having the ability to crush metal with his bare hands and hear a heartbeat from across the room, it would make Rowan’s career if she was the one to discover what made him so unusual.
Easier said than done, with a subject who prefers snapping necks over answering questions.
That was unexpected. I’ll be honest, I went into this without much expectation, I just NEEDED to read a book that was from a different genre. I’ve been bombarding my brain with a little too much mafia related books lately… not complaining but still, we do need “fresh air” once in a while. hahaha!
Pulse was unexpectedly good. I honestly don’t know which category to put this book under. It wasn’t your usual paranormal book to be honest, neither was it your typical science fiction either. I think now that I’ve read it, I like the fact that it’s sort of un-answered and makes you keep thinking about it even after you are done with it.
I will say this, this book makes your heart beat fast, I made the mistake of reading it before bed and I couldn’t sleep..so like always…I end up reading it in one sitting. Considering the fact that this book has only 316 pages (paperback version), the details are jam-packed and written very well. The only downside …eh… not really much of the downside actually, just me being nit picky- The ending was kinda abrupt. Don’t worry, I just wanted to know what happens next (You may ignore my last sentence if you wish.. )
For all you romance nuts out there, this book had that too- mild compared to what we normally read. The connection between Rowan and the subject (I’ll choose to not disclose it… As a reader, it was fun getting to know his name. So please, if you do plan to read it, don’t go searching.) wasn’t a physical attraction, at first- will it sound cliché if I said that there was just something and that something grew into love?
I will tell you one thing… this isn’t a vampire romance people…..
I hope you add this to your TBR list or pre-order it because I think you’ll really enjoy PULSE.
