Release Date - 09/29/14

Format - Kindle
Genres - YA Paranormal Zombies

The end of the world just might be their perfect beginning…

 Glenview, North Carolina. Also known―at least to sixteen-year-old Ava Pegg―as the Land of Incredibly Boring Vacations. What exactly were her parents thinking when they bought a summer home here? Then the cute-but-really-annoying boy next door shows up at her place in a panic…hollering something about flesh-eating zombies attacking the town. 

At first, Ava’s certain that Cole spent a little too much time with his head in the moonshine barrel. But when someone―or something―rotted and terrifying emerges from behind the woodpile, Ava realizes this is no hooch hallucination. The undead are walking in Glenview, and they are hungry. Panicked, Ava and Cole flee into the national forest. No supplies, no weapons. Just two teenagers who don’t even like each other fighting for their lives. But that’s the funny thing about the Zombpocalypse. You never know when you’ll meet your undead end. Or when you’ll fall dead over heels for a boy…

I received Dead Over Heels in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by YA Bound Book Tours. Ava parents have purchased a summer but it needs a little work so her dad who's not the most handy man is taking a shot. Instead of being in North Carolina Ava would rather be home where the closest she get's to the outside is the glass mall. Her mother is also determined for her to make friends with some of the local guys. 

When her parents head the 40 miles into town it should be a quiet afternoon of not leaving the house but suddenly Cole is pounding screaming for her to open the door with flesh-eating zombies hot on his trail. Together they head off into the woods unprepared without anything but Ava's purse which she wouldn't leave without. Will the pair survive the mass of zombies slowly following them? What will they find when they reach town?

I like Ava she's a city girl who's out of her element in the forest but she has Cole to protect her and may just find more than a partner to stay alive. I really like the chemistry between the two being thrown together has taken two unlikely people and found something beautiful. 

All I had to see was the name of the author and I knew I had to sign up for her newest zombie romance novel. I loved her first book so I had high expectations for Dead Over Heels and it exceeded them. I loved the characters they work well together and I was able to connect with them. I love the concept it's the scary zombie aspect with a romantic twist that creates a captivating story from start to finish. I loved Dead Over Heels it was hard to put down I finished it in one evening unable to stop till I reached the last page. Alison Kemper is quickly becoming my favorite zombie author and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
