A great read I totally recommend, especially if you enjoy dystopian, apocalypse kinda-romances.
This is one of those books that you devour, it’s definitely a “I’ll put it down at the end of this chapter, or maybe the next, or maybe in half-an-hour,” read that will keep you up way, way, way past your bedtime. I adored Shy, Boo (Noah) and Lawson to the moon and back. This trio made me laugh, had me terrified, caused me to swoon and broke my heart. That’s not quite true, it was the nasty, evil author who tore my heart to shreds😉 .
Despite the whole zombie-causing-virus thing that was going off, this felt such a real story, so believable. That is entirely due to a combination of excellent plot, great writing and amazing characters. The only reason this didn’t hit the full 5 stars was that we only got Shiloh’s point of view. Whilst I did believe in Shy’s feelings for him, and he truly is a hero in all senses of the word, not having anything from Lawson’s view point made it difficult for me to fully connect with him.
When the author claims this is a genre/trope crossing book she isn’t kidding. At times the romance almost takes a back seat, but in a good way. Too much smoochy-woochy, touchy-kissy-feely emotions would have weakened the story. Would have distracted from it, especially given the dire situation they were in. This really is quite a different read, with very different-to-the-norm characters. If you’re looking for something different to read then do try this.

Some people are life sucking, soul destroying, end of the world assholes…then there are zombies. Actually, they’re not really zombies, they’re infected, but you know, tomayto tomahto.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got my faults, too. My attitude down-right sucks. I’m untrusting. I smoke and curse too much, and I’m somewhat of a kleptomaniac. In a normal world, those faults help keep my rock queen facade intact. But in this new world, one raging with illness and torn apart by the desperate and stupid, I’m what you would call a survivor.
My plan was simple, stay alive and protect my teenage sister. When a silent man with a steely gaze shot his way into my existence, I knew that more than my life was at stake. Lawson Bishop had the potential to crack his way inside the hard shell of my heart and bring it back to life.
