I don't want to get too specific and give away any spoilers but will just say that this is both an exciting and endearing read! Charlotte is such a relatable protagonist and very engaging as the story's narrator. She's the full package yet adorably self-deprecating in her science geek-chic way. Owen, too, is kind, intelligent, and a feast for the mind's eye, but I appreciate how the author avoids making him the cliche alpha male by infusing him with real vulnerability. He's beautifully masculine ...more

Charlotte walks into orientation on the first day of her new job. Seems easy enough, meet your boss, have some lunch and learn about the company you are going to work with, then dive right into work right? Well, when your boss doesn't show up for orientation and they have to go look for him to join you for your team lunch, things are going to be a bit awkward right? You have no idea. Not just awkward, but a whole new kind of torture. Not too bad until a secret subject shows up for his tests, a d ...more

Subject X by Emma G Hunter
3.5 stars!!

“…You can’t lose a war if all your soldiers are invincible.”

For a debut author, Emma G Hunter has me really excited. I love reading newbies, that excitement of the unknown and finding a little gem in the process and Emma G Hunter really delivered. I didn’t know what to expect, the synopsis had me intrigued as did the title so with trepidation, I dived in.

The writing style was great and certainly didn’t read of a fledgling career, the authors voic

This story takes you on a ride of your life. Charlotte has just graduated and has been employed by Genesis as a research assistant. She has been pared with researcher Todd Strickland who has the reputation of being the best at what he does but hard to work with. Charlotte finds him to be secretive and quirky. Charlotte's world turns upside down when test subject Owen Becker arrives to the lab on the wrong day, but it turned out to be the right time for them both. This book has it all suspense, m ...more
I wouldn't say this story is paranoemal, but it has a "different" edge to it, that it's hard to categorize.
It was a surprising and great debut by Emma G. Hunter and I can't wait to read more if her work.

Review to come soon.

3.5 stars!

This is a really enjoyable read. A super-steamy and swoony romance with a bit of mystery and a very mild (view spoiler) supernatural twist.

Charlotte is beginning her first job as a Research Assistant at a prestigious genetic research laboratory. Thrown into the deep end by a supervisor who seems completely preoccupied in his own ‘top secret’ studies, she easily loses herself in the tedium of her work, until Owen Becker walks in for his routine testing.

I have to say, Emma Hunter rocks it with her debut book, Subject X.

When I read the blurb, I was definitely intrigued to see how this would play out. Some have marked this as a paranormal book, but it’s definitely not. This is definitely more Sci-Fi/Fantasy and it’s quite interesting.

Owen is a subject at Genesis where Charlotte just started working as a research assistant. Owen is quite unique – he has a gift. Only two people know about it…until Charlotte.

Will she be able to see past this? Will s

3.5 stars.

Recent college grad Charlotte has landed a job as a research assistant at a major biotech company called Genesis Life Systems. She is very excited to start on this new venture. Her boss often seems aloof and her starting project is blood samples. She adapts to the flow and finds her routine until Owen shows up to give specimen samples on the wrong date.

Owen is pure sex on a stick and draws Charlotte in. To try and accommodate him, she squeezes him in only to have her boss scramble out

Marvel meets real world? Subject X by Emma Hunter finds new college graduate Charlotte getting a job as a research assistant at Genesis Labs in order for her to figure out her future, and that’s exactly where she meets Owen. He is enrolled in one of the research studies and comes in on the wrong day for his appointment. From the moment she met him, she knew he was different…and how right she was. She tried to fight it, but he wouldn’t let her and they go out on a date. Never before has Owen felt ...more
so happy this was just 2.99. this was a letdown. the characters don't do much- she is besotted, he is good looking. that's as good as their personalities get. the book veers between sci-fi wannabe and hot romance wannabe. neither works, and the two main characters lack chemistry. promised to be steamy, and the love scenes were barely okay.

i might have been kinder and awarded two stars, but the ending is a cliffie. nothing says cash grab and buy my series like a cliffhanger ending.

What a fun read! It was like my favorite rom com combined with Marvel Comics. (and who doesn't love a Super hero?) I enjoyed this debut novel from Emma Hunter. The plot was intriguing, the dialogue witty and there was plenty of hot sex. I didn't see all the plot twists and certainly was unprepared for the ending. I look forward to the next book.
Eh. The summary sounded better than the novel actually was. Despite being smart, Charlotte read like a high schooler. The entire plot felt like subpar fanfiction. The mystery aspect was also a disappointment. It's more science than supernatural, despite what other reviews said.
