This had a feel of The Walking Dead, but still stood on its own. Survivors are rare and society has fallen. Oh, and women are scarce. Some are treasured and some are used, so there is a hint of suspense, while also sexy times between the sheets.
Daniel is a natural loner, but after so much time avoiding zombies and gangs, he’s more than happy to see another living soul unaffected by the zombie apocalypse. Even if she is dirty, gun happy and running from him, Ali presents as someone he can learn to love, protect and find a home with, but she’s a little skittish after watching her neighbors go crazy, become zombies and raping women in the streets. Holed up in the attic is the only safe place she has found, but when food runs out, she encounters Daniel. It’s not love at first sight since she tries to shoot him with a shot gun.
Daniel does a convincing job of getting her to move on with him and being that he is over forty with a divorce in his past, he intends to keep this woman happy. But that shotgun blast notifies others there are survivors in the area. While letting his guard down, Daniel and Ali get attacked. One man saves them. Finn. Finn is a twenty something former cop, who just wants companionship…well he wants Ali as well, but Daniel found her first and she’s in love with him.
So the story moves on from one problem to another with eventually Daniel convincing Ali that she needs to learn to love Finn as well. The two of them can protect her. Now don’t get that wrong, Daniel doesn’t want to share, but he believes for the safety of the woman he loves, he needs to have Finn in the relationship.
This story has it’s ups and downs, scary parts and sexy parts. What would happen if this happened for real? Who knows, but this is a good idea of what I feel it would be. Maybe not the romance, but I was reading it for the romance not the scary parts. That was just an extra bonus.
