What I can’t put down but had to? THIS. OMG it’s soooooooo good! Sex, romance and zombies? What can be sexy about zombies? Mmmmhmmmm… that’s what I was thinking, too. I pointed it out a few weeks ago in a “new release” post, and knew I’d definitely read it because the synopsis intrigued me and the price was SO right.
But it got bumped up on my TBR list when some of my reading buddies gave it a go and told me just how steamy it was. Considering their reactions, I was getting the impression that it was steamier then “steamy” (get me?). It is. And luckily, the “sexy” doesn’t involve the zombies. They’re just an “extra” in this new world that these relatable characters are faced with.
But here’s what I didn’t expect. That my heart would be equally indulged. And it is. Think of it as a sort of “Walking Dead” but with intense emotion and romance thrown in for good measure. A relief from the terror that they are trying to survive.
I am so crushing on Daniel right now. And I know I’m about to start crushing on the “new” guy. I don’t want to (well a part of me kind of does. A part of me is highly entertained by this new… possibility). But you see, I heart Daniel. BIG time. You’ll see… his goofy, sweet and alpha tendencies are absolutely swoonworthy. The “romance” is not over the top, and considering the circumstances, actually very-well written. A realistic edge to it.
I was intrigued right from the get-go, and connected immediately with the writing-style. I’m so into it and didn’t want to put it down once.
So why did I put it down? Wellllll… at around 50% a certain conversation took place, and I knew I didn’t want to jump into what might be next, without a good solid head on my shoulders. I need plenty of “alert” hours available to me so that I can “live” the second half to it’s maximum potential. So as soon as I’m home from work today, you know where I’ll be. Fighting a zombie apocalypse and… you know. Tee hee!
See you at “The end”!
