Book Review: Pulse by Kailin Gow

Pulse (Pulse #1) by Kailin Gow
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: August 31, 2010
Publisher:  The Edge

17 year-old Kalina didn't know her boyfriend was a vampire until the night he died of a freak accident. She didn t know he came from a long line of vampires until the night she was visited by his half-brothers Jaegar and Stuart Greystone. There were a lot of secrets her boyfriend didn t tell her. Now she must discover them in order to keep alive. But having two half-brothers vampires around had just gotten interesting. 

Pulse by Kailin Gow is the first book in the Pulse series. Stuart and Jaegar reminded me so much of Stefan and Damon from The Vampire Diaries. Damon was my favorite in that series, so naturally, Jaegar was my favorite in this series. Like those brothers, these brothers fall in love with the same girl too. This girl, Kalina, has special blood though. She's pretty shallow when it comes to the brothers. She likes this one. No, she likes that one. And that's not taking into consideration when she's under compulsion and is all swoony. They were pushing the love idea, but there just wasn't enough reason for this to be a love thing yet. Given the behaviors of the characters, there was definite lust, but I wouldn't call it love. I was pretty turned off by all the similarities to The Vampire Diaries. (As much as I looove Damon, we already have a Damon.) So, that makes me leery about continuing on in this series, however that ending sure has me curious. So, I'm on the fence at the moment. All in all, it was light and fun for the most part,but I felt like I had read it before.
