The Delight

I am on a zombie, post-apocalypic romance binge right now. Why? Well I am bored with the standard romance. While I liked this story, it is a serial and you know how I feel about serials! Throw in first person point of view and I was a little cranky. But I love the heroine. The hero…well, he needs some work.

Run jumps right into the zombie apocalypse just as it starts. Several cities have been hit by a “virus”, but no real news is given and now it has hit New Orleans. Alexis Winter, our tough heroine, is ready for a disaster like another hurricane, but not quite what is happening now. She’s tough at twenty-one having gone through Katrina with hippy parents. It left a lasting impression. Not exactly a dooms day activist, but she does have supplies at the ready…if only she was at her house when it hit.

Alexis is at work on a Saturday when it goes down. She must find a way back home to her supplies at the very least when she meets Blake a security company owner. The two team up to get to her residence and stock up on supplies then move onto an island Blake and his partner own for their company.

These two fall instantly into bed with each other. I am not quite so certain of Blake’s age, but Alexis is probably going to grow up real fast with this fall out. Blake is also very sexually active with a lot of kinks to his credit. While I think he falls in love with Alexis, he does something utterly unforgivable to Alexis at one point, especially since he won’t explain why.

We meet Zach who is Blake’s partner. He kind of likes to watch … you know the good parts. He’s also kind of an asshole at first. He doesn’t know they are zombies and for a while just tries to avoid them until they figure out these people aren’t living any more.

The ultimate goal is to get to the island they own and start setting up security and locating their teams. The story is fast paced, filled with lots of horny sex, and a zombie around every corner trying to eat you. I can’t wait to start the second book in the series to find out what happens next!

About Gillian Zane

Gillian Zane is the author of the NOLA Zombie series. Zane is the pen name of a prominent blogger in the publishing industry, which will remain a mystery unless you Google it. Since she can remember her goal has been to become Master of the Universe and has decided to focus first on the literary world. Things are progressing nicely.
Zane has been a freelance writer for the last ten years and has published a few non-fiction works, none of which was very exciting. Zombies are much more exciting and a way for her to combine her two current obsessions, hot boys with guns and Doomsday Prepping. When she isn’t stockpiling MREs (Meal’s Ready to Eat) or researching how to build a cistern on a budget, she’s taking care of her little family and exploring the city that she loves, New Orleans.

Sounds delightful enough, but I’m so not a fan of serials. I read them occasionally but usually avoide them like the plague, lols.

I’m not either! The author is actually a popular blogger which I didn’t figure out until I was trying to find the third installment. It does have a Walking Dead feel to it.

Yep, it is a lot like TWD and almost anyone in the blogging community should know the author, but I am not giving out that info without lots of permission.

LOL! Horny with a zombie around the corner. It sounds quirky enough to be fun.

It’s really fast paced and these two seem to keep ahead of the zombies, but at times I wanted to tell to stop and realize where there are.

Not really into zombie romance or serials but this sounds fun.

I like The Walking Dead, which is where the feel came from in the zombie sense. I am not a fan of zombies behind alive beings who mortals fall in love with, that’s creepy! The love aspect was very erotic unlike TWD.

Zombies!! I love them and this sounds like a fun one. Adding to my list!

It was fun *hint* the author is someone a lot of us bloggers know. I finally got a clue who it was when I read the second book and saw her profile picture on Amazon.

I’ve seen this book around a few times and while it sounds good, I am not sure if I would enjoy it as I usually avoid zombie books. I do like that the main character actually has a kit and then ofcourse isn’t home when the apocalypse starts. Sounds like it has a nice combination of action and hot sex. Great review!

Quite a mix of both aspects! I don’t mind zombie books as long as we aren’t to fall in love with the zombies. Ewww. I just don’t want to go that direction, but human/human surviving I can deal with that. It was pretty hot and action packed!

It was fun. I can’t say my favorite, but I did enjoy the two books in this series. I can’t wait to find out what happens in the third one.
