Synopsis (Goodreads):
When technology stopped working, the world as they knew it ended.

In a secluded cabin, John and his loved ones have survived. He should feel grateful. But his family is in his face 24/7, he has to watch his best friend, Arden, and brother, Gabriel, flaunt their love, and as a techie in a Luddite world he’s pretty much useless. The cabin is brimming with people, but he feels utterly alone.

Until he catches Mr. Tall, Blond and Gorgeous raiding their garden. Mykhail is an astrophysics student, he makes John’s gaydar ping like crazy and he thinks he knows what caused the devastation. He’s on a journey to his university to find answers, and John invites himself along. Partly to get out of the house, and partly because he can’t let Mykhail go without acting on the mutual attraction that’s so obvious even John’s mom is playing matchmaker.

The closer they get to campus, the more Mykhail lets down his walls. But with answers come secrets both devastating and deadly, and before they can save the world, they’ll have to save themselves.
Thoughts on Signal Boost: OMG, guys. Ohmigod. The whole set up for this series makes me incredibly happy. I can genuinely say this book gave me everything I wanted in a broken world with a heaping side order of romance and danger.

I'm feeling the love, people. Feeling the love.

Things I adored: John's disconnect from his family. After so many months of being cooped up, he's feeling it. Yes, he loves his family. Yes, he's overjoyed that they've all survived the things that have happened, but close quarters can be hard. Very hard. Especially when your best friend has hooked up with your brother and there's not a glimmer on the horizon that your own romantic drought will be ending any time soon. Still, John's happy for Arden and Gabriel. He wants them to be happy. It's just hard being in that middle of that with no chance of a HEA of his own.

Then Mykhail stumbles into his life. Mykhail, who's sweet and smart and has a few demons of his own he needs to deal with. Speaking of which... *clutches Mykhail and pets him* Poor boy. Everything he went through after the lights went out hurt my heart. Poor, poor boy.

This series has pleased me from beginning to end. We're given answers here that I was dying to find out after book 1 and I just can't resist Mama Seong playing matchmaker whenever the opportunity arises. And the twerking. OMG, the twerking. LOLOLOLOL!

Good times.
