With a huge cliffhanger hanging over my head, I jumped right into finding out what happens to Alexis after Blake’s ex, Clara, kidnaps her with malicious intent. Well, Clara’s plans go south as they encounter a family of rednecks looking for women to sell to a biker gang for food. Alexis has heard about this gang from one of their camp members who escaped. Women are bartered for sex with no rights while the men are put to work in a separate spot and the children in another. It’s not a good life as the bikers are also cooking up drugs on the premises as well. Clara and Alexis are looking into a Hell of a life unless they can get themselves out or be rescued.
Zach and Blake know what’s going on shortly after it happens, but it’s night time. It takes them some time to follow and now they are on a hunt for the woman they both love. At times they are way to patient for my liking and at others they are at each other’s throat for what has happened. Blake blames himself for bringing in Clara and well, Zach isn’t to blame as much other than not protecting Alexis. The men create a team and go to get their woman back.
A lot happens and a lot of what you think will happen doesn’t. So don’t go into this one thinking you know what will happen because Zane keeps us guessing. There is a jerky feel to what is going on in the narration. Each chapter is from a new perspective of one of the three: Alexis, Zach or Blake. Alexis’s view was pretty easy to follow because she isn’t with the other two. Zach or Blake I found myself back tracking to the beginning of each to re-affirm who’s perspective I was reading.
The heat factor for sexy times takes a back seat for the first three-fourths of the book as I would expect. Times aren’t good and the situation doesn’t call for sexy times. Unless the guys are going to use their hands or each other, which they don’t. Alexis is in a bad situation of being the MC President’s Property. I can’t tell you what happens, but it isn’t pleasant no matter what happens.
This story does end the Alexis, Blake and Zach triangle. No cliffhangers, but still there were some unresolved issues. I am hoping to see them taken care of in later books. Some people still need to find love in a zombie infested world. Not the best of times, but then again, finding love helps eliminate the total gut wrenching fear that there isn’t more to life.
A terrific ending to a story arc that I have wanted to read more of after each book. Not everything is wrapped up in a bow (who needs a bow in a zombie apocalypse anyway). No cliffhangers which satisfied me just fine after the last one. People die. People live. People love. That’s what makes the story a great one.
