Flesh-eating zombies, dirty sex, and a shattered past…
What’s more dangerous—the man who broke her heart or those trying to eat it?
Fighting to survive, Eve finds herself alone in the world after the Crave—the only parallel of her former life. On the hunt for her sister, she runs into Gage—the first and only boy to have her heart and break it. It’s been four years and he isn’t a boy anymore, nor is he the same person he used to be. Against her better judgment, Eve agrees to stay with him when he divulges information on a safe haven near the small town they grew up in—but that doesn’t mean she has to like it…
Returning home elicits a myriad of emotions that both Eve and Gage thought they had buried. The past and present collide and they are forced to the face bitter deceits that ruined them in the before and threaten to destroy them now…
Angie J Review:
I was surfing FB and noticed some ad or something for this zombie book. Well I luuuurves me a good zombie book so I went to Amazon and read the blurb. Hot damn! Loved it so I one clicked it. Then I friended the author anad saw her book trailer and was even more excited to read this. Anywho, I took a day off from work adn literally read this entire book from beginning to end on that day. I couldn't put it down. It has angst, tension, drama, SQUEEEEE Moments, and just so many "OMG" moments.
I loved the way the story unfolds . Eve is pretty much tired. Tired of running. Tired of fighting. Tired of looking for her sister so she thinks "maybe death is ok". Then she is rescued by a man who turns out to be GABE....the one who tore her heart into a millions pieces 4 years ago right before the Crave hit and took the world away. Needless to say they are both stunned to see the other. Eve is pretty pissed at what he did to her...but we the reader don't know until the flashbacks hit in the novel. Man are they times PERFECT for the story. Each flashback gives you JUST enough to tease you until the final flashback is told and you know exactly what Gabe does to Eve. Man, i wanted to punch him in the nut sac and understood Eve's anger and hurt by him. ANY WAY, Eve and Gabe make an agreement to work together to find her sister. FYI I have no clue why bcause Eve's sister is a megga BEEEOTCH of epic proportions. YES sister Olive is alive and we see glimpse into her life and WOW!!!! Yeah I totally hate her and was PMing the author saying "please tell me she gets eaten???" LOL
Well Eve and Gabe go through a lot from her stealing from him (AWKWARD moment), fighting the zombies, meeting/losing/getting jealous over attractions to new friends and fighting/running for the Lurkers. OMG people these are some cray cray folks who EAT the dead....annnnnd the living!!! YEAH WAY intense scenes there when they are on the run.
My favorite part of the book when the final time Gabe tries to make it work with Eve. When he bares he heart and soul out for her. Man, I have to say he screwed up but he really mans up. I have a little girlie crush on Gabe. Gabe was a stupid kid and did bad stuff but we are all kids. Eve can't seem to let the hurt go and it made me yell at her a time or two but the ending is awesome. Their date....wow.....I was tearing up.
I cannot wait for book 2 but I fear that something Eve does in book 1 caused trouble for Olive and she will have major major major guilt. Wanna know? read the book people!!!!
