A few months ago, I wrote about my burgeoning love for paranormal romance. I’ve really embraced love stories with “others.” I am a sucker for werewolves, but I had never read much that went into the zombie vein. Bring Me to Life is a post-apocalyptic zombie romance that was not too far-fetched or out there. I mean, I tried and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to see what all the hype was about. But I never found the need to throw myself back into the proverbial zombie pool. Then, I got the opportunity to do this first look. I had so many questions- could zombies do anything BUT eat human brains? Did they have bodily functions that included…the need for sex? *whispers* (Yes, they do!)
As far as the plot goes, it moved at a steady pace from zombie farm to…other places ( no spoilers, remember?). Lyric meets Anson while being held, and her only motivation is to NOT get eaten alive by the zombies. There are definitely some erotic scenes that work. I always thought I’d be like gross, zombie sex…but he has a quality that is just as hot as other creatures in this genre. The zombies in this book can be at several stages, so Anson is not a mindless “must eat brains” kinda guy. He can’t speak much, but we do find out that being a zombie isn’t quite what we may have expected.
