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.
At A Glance
I am obsessed and I don’t even know why!
Wow, a lot happens in this novella. I didn’t feel gipped like I usually do with novellas, though I was left dying to read the next book. I was on Goodreads so fast to see when book #2 comes out, which is in July. Yay!
So, we get zombie-goodness, humping-goodness, and gore-goodness. Some of my fav things in a book. 😀 Gillian did a great job of keeping my attention with lots of action, description, and a good story. Alexis is a ‘prepper’, so she is so ready for the zombie-apocalypse. She was a good mixture of badass heroine and twitterpated female. When Blake, ex-military hottie, teams up with Alexis to fight the new world together, lots of brain-smashing and hanky-panky ensues. Blake had a sweet heart with a dominate hand. Yummy.
These two were so cute together. They had an instant attraction that they often caved to, but they were always alert, always ready to survive and kick ass. I was so excited to see people actually prepared and equipped to handle the zombie invasion. They had a rough but productive journey that I enjoyed every second of. Then the ending kind of gutted me, but I am intrigued to see where it goes.
I wish it was a bit more realistic. Yes, I know, it’s a zombie book. But I still want the feel of what it would really be like in a zombie-apocalypse. Run didn’t quite get there 100%.
HOT! Seriously, this is a sizzling zombie book. Sure, the sex doesn’t always come at the best time, but I didn’t care. What a way to go, right? My cheeks were burning because I happen to have read this in public. Yeah, I was squirming.
I am reading the next book for sure. Run is not going to be for everyone, but it really worked well for me. It fit my mood perfectly. Very recommended.
This is a tour wide giveaway.
