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.


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.
