Alexis knew it was only a matter of time before the zombie outbreak, and after her experience with hurricane Katrina, she won't be caught unprepared again. She's become a prepper, stockpiling at her house, keeps a bag in the car, and even trained her dog German. She's spent lots of time on the forums, learning and prepping for the future upcoming zombie apocalypse. Of course, when it happens she's at work at least it's the weekend and not a full office.
Armed with an ax she makes it out of the building to her car but getting home proves to be a challenge with all the people fleeing and zombies running around. When she decides to take a chance at getting home quicker she finds an unlikely travel companion a sexy ex-military guy. Teamed up with Blake the pair heads up the river on a boat headed for their homes. They find that they may just have found the perfect zombie apocalypse partner and it's just a bonus that they are attracted to each other. Will they make it out of New Orleans alive? What awaits them when they make it home?
I like Alexis she's clearly a smart girl who has taken planning to a whole new level. While she may be willing to swing her ax at the zombie threat teaming up with Blake proves to provide what she need. The pair has an instant connection, they can't deny the attraction and fall head over heels for each other. The chemistry between the two is very steamy lots of sexy moments on this whirlwind adventure.
I've had this one on my TBR for a while but haven't been in a mood for zombies in a while. Killer zombies are one of my favorite concepts toss in some steamy romance and I'm interested. I started Run and finished it in a single sitting, finding the story hard to put down. The characters are easy to connect with you can't help loving Alexis on her epic adventure. I wasn't sure about Blake he seemed to perfect but he grew on me as the book progressed. I've enjoyed every book by the author as she's a brilliant storyteller weaving an intricate story. I truly enjoyed Run even though it ends in a cliffhanger and look forward to reading the rest of the series. I will admit the story does have a lot of steamy sexy moments but what else are you going to do with no social media. Highly recommend.
