Pulse by Gail McHugh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Emily has found her way out of an abusive relationship, and is desperately trying to find her way into a relationship that may have been ruined before it had a chance to start.
Pulse picks up right where Collide leaves off. Emily is attempting to locate Gavin and get him to forgive her and take a chance on a relationship with her, which is what they both seem to want more than anything. I don't want to spoil anything, so I'm going to keep this pretty brief. Gavin and Emily are great- their chemistry is amazing and they have a hot connection. Dillon is a dick and continues right down that path of dickishness. Trevor and Fallon are still going strong and we get to see Trevor struggle to overcome his choices with regard to his friendship with Dillon and how that affected his relationship with Gavin. Definitely a lot of drama in this one, and it is easy to pick this up and read it straight through to the end.
There is a total Dallas (the 80's TV show) moment that made me want to throttle the author, but mostly because it totally had my emotions all over the place. I would also like to give a shout out to the awesome kind of Alpha that Gavin is. He's a strong male who cares about protecting those he cares about. The difference between him and a lot of other literary Alphas is that he does this in a way that doesn't cross the line into controlling. Sometimes he seems a little too perfect, but isn't that why we all read fiction?
If you've read and enjoyed Collide- there is no reason you shouldn't pick this one up immediately.
