Emma had never expected to get accepted to University of California, Beverly Hills, or to get chosen by Omega Mu Gamma, the most exclusive sorority on campus, but once she did, she found her lifestyle had changed forever. During the day she went to class, in the afternoons, shopped until she dropped and went to the spa, but at night? She drank by the bottle at the hottest club in town, Club Grit, popped pills, and tried any new drug once, with any guy that asked and with any sorority sister that commanded it. One changed all that, the kind of guy she'd never find herself wanting to date: Skylar.
Skylar was just trying to do his job. As a bouncer at Club Grit, he saw girls like Emma on a nightly basis and knew that she wasn't his type. He wasn't into girls that got that wasted and danced with dangerous guys. He also wasn't supposed to give her a cab ride back to the sorority house when she got too ****ed up to get herself back on her own. He definitely wasn't supposed to do it twice.
He's the one guy that doesn't want her or the problems that comes with dating a girl like her.
She's the one girl he can't stay away from, the one he can't stop himself from saving.
He's her salvation.
She's his redemption.
And somehow, she's going to make it through this ****ed up world alive. He's not about to let her pulse stop.
This is a new adult romance with sex described in graphic detail, sexual situations, heavy drug usage, sex under the influence of alcohol and drugs, attempted date rape, strong violence, lots of strong language, and other issues young adults face, and is a book for mature readers only.
This is the first part of the Club Grit Trilogy, a saga about three girls at the same sorority (Emma, Becca, and Kim), and it takes place during the same exact timeline, from start to finish. Although each part shows a different point of view of many overlapping events, each book can be read as a standalone, although it's suggested you read Emma's story, "Pulse", first, Becca's story, "Throb", second, and Kim's story, "Shatter", last.
