Zombies are on the loose in New Orleans and of all the End of the World scenarios, Alexis Winter wasn’t prepared for this one. But, an apocalypse is an apocalypse and she should have this covered. She has been “prepping” for the last three years. The problem is location and timing. She’s stuck downtown and she has to get to her house on the outskirts of the city so she can get her supplies and bug-in (for the “non-preppers” this means hole up and stay safe).

Agreeing to work on a Saturday is now coming back to bite her on the ass big time. Hopefully, it won’t be a literal bite by the walking dead.

Luck favors the prepared, and as luck would have it, it comes in the form of the ridiculously hot Blake Miller. Former military man, current mercenary, Blake Miller, the man with the plan, his goal: steal a boat and trek up the Mississippi until they find safety. Alexis thinks this is a great plan and she decides to team up with Blake. The two team up in unexpected ways as they find they can’t keep their hands off of each other even when the world is falling down around them.

Can Alexis and Blake survive the end of the world, and if they do make it through the night, find a place that is safe and secure? Can their newfound attraction lead them down the road to love or heartbreak?

Zombies, sex, romance and carnage…you can’t get any better than this.


This book was sooo amazing! It was like watching an episode of my favorite TV show “The Walking Dead”  only with a lot of hot sex, a lot more sex! God if ever I was going to be found in a zombie apocalypse I’d want to have a hot ex-army mercenary men at my back too! Especially if there was one as sexy as Blake Miller.

Blake was one delicious alpha male.  He was dominate, rough, tender, and oh so mysterious.  The chemistry between him and Alexis was wow.. off the chart intense.  These two hit it off wonderfuly. If the world is coming to an end, these two got the right idea for how to pass the time! And I’m not talking monopoly ladies! If these two weren’t humping like horny little rabbits, they were kicking zombie ass and trying to stay alive.

Things got very interesting when Blake and Alexis met up with Blake’s business partner, Zachary.  Wow, that was a good moment. I’m chomping at the bit to get the next book.  I truly don’t know if I can wait till Tuesday!

I’m usually a scary cat when it comes to all things horror, gore and guts, but for this amazing book and series I think I can make an exception.  And defiantly one for Blake.  Although I’m very upset with you mister. * points finger* you know what you did.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who on the run from zombies and looking for a life line in the form of a hot and  sexy alpha war hero.
