The Delight

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.

  • We found a love in a hopeless place… Let me guess… They had a threesome!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Ahh! That is the song I should have paired with it! Yep, threesome, but it took some time to get there without them right off the bat going there. It wasn’t easy, but when they fell into it, it started getting a little over the top.

      • Sigh, I hope they didn’t smell like death when they did it. Gah!

        • Shari Delighted Read

          lol, well, Daniel made Ali take a shower right after they met, so nope, he was kind of a clean freak.

  • Zombipocalypse would definitely make one re-think the rules.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      It wasn’t really bad. Just have to think about how to make life go on.

  • I haven’t read many zombie books either as I avoid that genre, not a fan of zombies, they are gross and scary. That is good to hear it wasn’t insta love, although in dangerous settings I can usually imagine that romance develops a bit faster. It sounds like a nice combination of romance and scary parts, so that’s good. Although probably not for me as I don’t want any scary parts. Great review!

      I am not a huge fan of zombies. Especially if the zombies are the hero/heroine. This reminded me a lot of The Walking Dead TV show with a lot more love scenes. Overall, it wasn’t too bad, just a little too scary for my like.
