Escape, The (Pulse, #2)
by: Shoshanna Evers

In Book Two of the erotic dystopian Pulse Trilogy, Jenna escapes New York City only to be tracked down by a soldier who might be her only hope of survival.

But with the power grid down and no connection to the outside world, Jenna will die if she stays at Grand Central's FEMA camp, selling her body to soldiers.

Private Ken Barker is sent to capture Jenna when she escapes - but Jenna knows he's one of the good guys and tries to seduce him into joining her. Their passionate sex kindles something even stronger than lust between them, and when Barker goes back to Grand Central he sees the horrors there with new eyes.

Now it's his turn to escape the city, and he knows he must take Jenna with him or she'll die at the camp. On the road, they'll start a new life together, hoping against hope that the electricity between them will prove more than just a spark - that together they might finally light up their dark nights.
