This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I was surprised when I got an email from Gillian with her latest book in it before Christmas time. Unfortunately, I was extremely busy and couldn’t get it done by release day, but I did read it and now the review.
Romeo is one of he survivors we have gotten to know in the three books that came out first. This one rewinds to the time right before the zombie outbreak. The story opens up with Romeo and Lucas Martinez finishing their shift protecting a young actress, Selena Devay. A Friday off in the Big Easy and the guys want a drink and a good time, but they catch Lena trying to leave the hotel alone. Turning things around, they accompany her to the bar where she is meeting someone. Thus they get their beers when a woman approaches Romeo for a good time. All during this there are news reports about a virus taking over a few cities. The men know the news and government isn’t telling the truth, but it’s not there yet.
So let’s just say this isn’t a romance at all, but it is in the series where I just finished a romantic triangle. This is Romeo’s story of how he connects with his family and makes his way to the rendevous with the team he works. This isn’t a romantic story, but there is love for a younger sister, an older brother and his wife: family. What would you do for them to protect them.?
It’s not terribly long and you know Romeo’s story from this and the other stories. I am hoping get more of his story. Someone died in the last book, but I will totally admit I can’t remember the name of who, so I am desperately hoping it wasn’t Romeo. I don’t think it was. So I can only hope he finds love in the not to far future and can find comfort.
A sad story with some adrenaline rushes to keep you guessing what will be next. It’s a good pre-story for the NOLA Zombie series.
