Roulette Run, Iron Renegades MC (Last of Us, #3)

When the unthinkable happens …

Lenny is all about living in the moment. She attends O.S.U. and looks forward to the weekends where she can let loose and forget about the stress of college life.

Angel has always been intrigued by his sexy neighbor but the sweet, pretty girl next door is way out of his league. His life in the MC is violent, harsh, and full of crime.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

When the zombie apocalypse is upon us, who doesn’t want their savior to be a dark angel on a motorcycle? For Lenny, she gets to live this! Lenny and Angel have been neighbors since, forever. Both have been dealt a crap hand at life and lost their parents early on. Lenny is home from college and is ready to celebrate the 4th of July when she gets a call from her sister, Charlotte with a mysterious message. As the night goes on, all hell breaks loose! ZOMBIES! Angel comes back to hang out with Lenny and ends up being right in the middle fighting for their lives. These two have always had a thing for each other and never acted on anything, but now they may never get a chance if they don’t come clean with each other now. It is full of action and wit with a hawt love story. The Last of Us is one of my favorite Zombie series. I really liked Roulette Run but it felt like things were a bit off in comparison to the first two in the series. There were areas where the story seemed to sort of fall flat and at times it felt rushed. However, this does not stop me from recommending the book because this series is intense and has so much potential to be really amazing. I am looking forward to how all the characters will intertwine because everyone’s story is unique. It is fast paced and attention grabbing, definitely a page turner!

#WOTR20 – #Review – Zombie Queen by Brandy Slaven and Mary Martel

Zombie Queen

The beginning…
The beginning is always the best place to start when reflecting on what has been.
Thinking back on it, my life had been perfect.
Middle class girl in high school with a happy home life.
My life had been full of nothing but promise.
Life was good.
Everything was great.
And then my whole world went to shit. In one day.
The disease came first.
Then the dead.
It was a fight for my life every single day from the start. But I was different from all the rest.
I had heard my mother’s screams while watching my sister become one with the undead. All the while feeling like there was absolutely nothing I could do to help them.
It killed me.
What’s more, it changed me.
I did everything I possibly could to survive on my own.
And then I learned how to survive with others.
By being their Queen.
Their Zombie Queen.
And by being the most feared woman they ever came in contact with.

This is a WhyChoose novel full of zombies, a sword wielding badass chick, and an army of dudes.
Recommended age 17+ due to content and language.

For the love of zombies and all of their undead unholiness….Sign me up! I am going to try to explain how great this story is. The tag on this book is WhyChoose…so why choose? It’s the end of the world and the zombies have taken over, people! Em was a good girl with a good future ahead of her but that was in a past life. “I may be a sword wielding bad@$$ zombie slayer now, but before all of this….I was pretty much afraid of my own shadow.” Em has had to learn to survive on her own. She has taught herself to survive and to take care of herself. She is the ultimate bad@$$. The first real curveball thrown in the story is how she meets her band of merry men. I was like “whaaaaat?” It was craziness I tell ya! Then being witness to the story unfolding and how she gets to know all these guys is really impressive. This is not a hot and heavy reverse harem type of book, it’s so much more! I really love how the world building happened and how the characters unfolded. Nothing was overbearing or overdone. It was fast paced, full of action, with some hawtness thrown in…perfect! There are zombies and then there are monsters…of the human variety. People just don’t act right and those actions were loud and clear in this story. There were many many times that I rooted for Em and her crew out loud. Em has protected herself, not only physically, but mentally as well by not being a pushover little girl. She has a smart mouth, knows what she wants and has no problem letting them know about it either. I am going to give one tiny spoiler because it stems from one of my favorite lines in the book. Em befriends a grandma and she says “Suck on a d***, Grandma Death. I thought we were supposed to be friends but you’re a f*****g traitor.” I literally LOL’d after this. Em is a girl after my own heart. I hope their story continues because I need more!

I receive this book from the author for an honest review.

I known a lot of people balk at zombie books, but they are my guilty pleasure.  When I find a series I love, it is even better!!  I love the way this series is told.  We are getting to meet all the different characters inside novellas before we will get to all meet up to stop the government or whoever is causing this virus.

This novella is about Lenny and Angel…Lenny the sweet college girl and Angel the rough and tough MC V.P.  They grew up together and both are secretly in love with one another.  Angel planned on making Lenny his ol’lady annnnnnnnd then ZOMBIES!!!

The story introduces us to the MC plus gives us some back story to Lenny, Angel and her sister Charolotte…who we have already met in a previous book.

This story was good but not as fluid as the others.  It felt a little choppy in places and even rushed???  I don’t know.  I liked the story but it seemed to be missing something the others had…I cant put my finger on it but it wont stop me from reading because I need to know what happened at the end!!!!!  GASP!!! SO much drama in such a short read.

Love and Neck Ties 

Blurb – For Samuel Grayson, everything is black or white. As a funeral director, there’s no room for in-between. He’s accustomed to dealing with life and death, though he’s definitely more comfortable with the latter. Especially when it comes to a chaotic, petite, feisty ball of energy. Freedom Rayne. Samuel’s pretty sure her goal is to make his life hell, or so it appears. When Samuel boards a flight to Las Vegas for his sister’s wedding, the last thing he expects is to share it with the one woman who drives him crazy.

Freedom is eccentric and completely content with it. Floating around from job to job, she finds peace and tranquility in everything she does, including tormenting poor, uptight Samuel Grayson. When she finds herself on the same flight as him for her best friend’s wedding, she sees this as the perfect opportunity to get under his skin, something she tries to do every chance she gets. The problem is the more time she spends with him, the more she likes him.

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Not for Samuel and Freedom. Will they be able to forget about their trip when they return to Rockland Falls? What if one mistake turns out to be the best thing ever?

Love and Neck Ties review- 

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

LAWD!!! Sammy and Free!! You two have been killing me this series!! I mean GAH!! I was so excited when I learned that Free was going to be Samuel’s HEA because honestly, I cannot imagine anyone else with him. As opposites as they are, they fit together perfectly in so many ways.

Samuel has always been annoyed yet intrigued by his sisters’ best friend who was essentially adopted into the family. He, however, also couldn’t stand her constant teasing and chaos of a world. Samuel is Mr. White and Black. Everything has a place and life isn’t messy. Life is orderly. Boy does Free rock his world right off its axis.

Freedom is the queen of the hippie life. She doesn’t eat meat. She doesn’t believe in animal testing on products. She is the most reliable if not slightly late friend you can ever want so why is she so attracted to her sister older brother. The man who wears ties to family functions…never mind what those ties do to her libido!!!

These two have fought the chemistry so long so when they are thrown together in the Vegas for Samuel’s sister/Free’s best friend Harper’s wedding as the only single friends, they kiiiinda lose control and kiiiind awake up a mess. Apparently, what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas!!

I loved seeing Free be so sure in the decision to stay with Samuel and convince him she was the right person for him. Seeing Samuel so conflicted but stepping out of his norm to TRY this life with Free was adorable. I loved the scene with him in the shop…hilarious!! The entire scene cracked me up.

The conflict of the story made my eyes a bit leaky because we all wanted to punch Samuel. He has lived by his strict controlled world. He is having a hard time learning to trust his heart and not follow his brain. Free is the most amazing character in the series and when we finally got to SEE what her life was before this meeting Harper and her family, it was sad. We understand why family is so important to her and why she clings to those she loves so fiercely.

The epilogue was amazing, and the bonus epilogue made my heart sing!! I was so happy by that little chapter because …well we all needed to see this happen and see the HEA!!

Zombie Queen Review – 
I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing and crazy good this story is. The first chapter will have you on the edge of your seat. My heart was in my throat listening to Emerald tell you about the day everything changed for her. If that chapter does not keep you totally enthralled, then when you hear the description of the life and surroundings Emerald has…I felt my skin crawling because it was so tense and so claustrophobic. I was dying but in heaven dying!! It was totally a good thing!

This book is so fast paced at times with so much action and then other times we are feeling the despair and fear of Emerald. We know its been 16 months and we know she is sad, lonely and scared. When the Sam appears I admin I was scared outta my mind because women aren’t treated the best in these worlds and Emerald knows this first-hand. As the other guys start to show Emerald they are not the bad guys and can be trusted, we see her open up and hope beyond hope she had a safe place. A Family to call her own. Complete with a crazy Granny!!

The story is a lot of interpersonal relationships and dealing with the all the men and one Emerald. But when Emerald makes some proclamations, I was like GET IT GIRL!!! When our family is starting to come together and starting to find a rhythm, chaos finds them and its not even the crazy girl or the wild man who bring it home.

I loved the action and loyalty this family shows one another. But sweet Baby Jesus if you ladies don’t write another book, Imma be broken. I need some more time with some of the guys and Emerald.

Four Rounds Review
I received this book from the author.

I read the first chapter and was messaging Jillian how hilarious this book is. Seriously I snort laughed so many times in this book!

Cricket is so damn funny and off the wall, but I loved her so much. Once you get past her wild and crazy side you see a woman who wants to be loved for her but is so scared of being loved. Her life hasn’t been great, and she hides it well. However, her insane attraction to her friend’s brother changes that for her in an instant.

Theo is a total sick in the mud. He goes boxing with his sister and takes notice of the wild instructor immediately. When she just shoves her way into his life, he is not happy but also not unhappy about it. The only issue is…he can’t get involved with her given he is investigating her father’s dirty dealings.

The dates the two go on…had me in stitches!! I mean shut up!! I couldn’t stop giggling while reading!! The story of Theo’s investigation takes on the majority of the end of the story but seeing them try to be together through it all was well worth the read.

Seriously I would love to read a book about Jessica, Theo’s sister, because this insane family needs more wild in their lives.

Convict Blood Review – 
 
I receive this book from the author for an honest review.

Ok fraaaannz!! I am a dark reader but I am a scaredy cat dark reader…meaning…if its super dark I hide and cry. If its super dark, I freak outta my mind. Ok so now you know what kinda whimp reader I am. Lemme say, THIS BOOK I was totally rooting for the couple and not at all sad about what was happening. LOL

Vic and Henry are totally in a bad spot and get caught stealing. Now this is way way way back when Australia would send entire families to the jail if the parents were caught. So Vic and Henry along with baby Lizzy are facing this jail time. (You get the prequal for the story here https://www.authorvivianward.com/ )

The couple are bound and determined to last the 9 month journey and if they get separated, they will keep their heads down and noses clean. Well that is a great plan IN THEORY, but Vic soon becomes the eye of Marine Officer Kent’s eye.

Matthew Kent is not a great guy….initially. Yeah, he is forcing himself on Vic but soon they two do form a bond. Now I know people will scream STOCKHOLM SYNDROM, but I don’t think so. I think they really and truly grow to love each other. Matthew has cared for Lizzy and Vic while also looking for her husband but coming up short.

They two must overcome a lot while on the journey to the prison’s new camp. They wonder if they can make it ago and what will happen once they do arrive at the island. Right when we think we know what will happen, Vivian throws a giant couple of twists and turns and I was like DAYUM GIRL!! Why you gotta do me like this!!! LOL

Once they boat makes way to the mainland Vic has a lot of new things to navigate and new worries besides what she has been worrying about the entire journey. I legit cannot even begin to discuss what happens on the island because HELLO SPOILERS are not my jam. But if you like darker books and storied with crazy twists and turns with yummy anti-heros and sweet heros, then this is a book for you.

Mine for Now Review –
I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Friends!! Ran has been on my mind since I read When you Where Mine back last fall. I mean this dude is a hot mess of loyalty and family but also heartbreak and feeling less then.

You don’t need to read the previously mentioned book BUT to know Ran and his heart, I highly suggest it. When Elle comes and knocks him on his big burly ass, you will appreciate it all the more.
Ran has only loved Harper and after the heartbreak of losing her to Ash, he has given up on finding anyone. He knows he is a felon and who wants to marry or be with a guy like that? He is gruff and rough around the edges plus he is totally pushing away all his friend. But he is definitely the one guy you can trust to keep a woman safe.

Elle is over it all. After walking away from her fiancée and starting life over in this small town, she too is over dating. When an accidental tasing of Ran leads Elle to wonder about the hot stranger, they both think they will never see the other.

When Elle comes barreling into his life by helping and befriending his sister Nona, who also is a hot mess and I am dying to know her story with Ben, the two start a “friends with benefits” relationship. Each is afraid of the day the other will call it quits but is secretly falling head over heels with the other.

When miscommunication and self-doubt cause the two to separate, I was ready to nut punch Ran. I was glad to see Harper come and knock some sense into him with the help of Ash. These two are a perfect fit and they need to open their eyes and stop worrying about the fears in their heart.

I am such a huge fan of these characters. I admin the previous book was one of my favorite last year so this book was a very anticipated book by me. I can saw 110% this book did not let me down. I loved getting to know Ran and all his “faults” even more. But I really loved the sassy and fiery red head named Elle who helped him overcome his fear of being less then. But yo, I really freaking loved Gigi!!!!

Wow! What a ride! I really enjoyed this story as there is the right amount of gruesome and perfectly timed sarcasm to even things out, in a crazy good way. I am a zombie enthusiast, so to read a story that really is about survival and family is incredible. There is no romance here in the middle of the apocalypse. This is the journey of Dave and Pam’s family trying to make it to safety. There are zombies out there, roads are blocked off everywhere, and they need to find a new vehicle as theirs is just not going to make it. About the time they get a plan together they deal with the crazy survivors that are out for blood, no matter whose it is. New friendships are made and the group gets bigger. Dave is having a lot of doubts on whether he will be able to save everyone and the doubts grow with the new additions to the group. But as things get heavy, it really comes down to family and survival. I cannot wait to continue this journey with the family as I root for them to survive and get to safety.

I was born high in the Andes and raised by a band of wandering gypsies. At the ripe old age of 7, I struck out on my own, dabbling in the arts of alchemy and personal financing. Neither of the trades paid off. At 13 I became the personal juggler for Stephen King, but alas, that didn’t last long either. Since then, I’ve wandered aimlessly through life and this planet, stopping along the way to help people and smite the wicked.

A little while ago I decided to try my hand at writing. I published The True Death series independently in 2015 and currently have ten books published to date.

All things ZOMBIE! We have a reason why the world has gone to hell in a handbasket! And now…how do we fix it??? There is a reason the zombies are the way they are, and the way the zombies are evolving will make the geek in you get excited! We have so much more in this story about the hows and whys that make the zombies. EXCELLENT!

This is Bailee’s and Sawyer’s story. This starts out with Bailee and her dealing with her own turmoil. She has been on her own for a year. That’s right folks, an entire year. Feeling like she was alone, the lone survivor. Along with her own turmoil we find out that she is the niece of the man that found this virus that made zombies. While out scavenging she is overrun by zombies and is saved by Sawyer. Sawyer happens to be an alpha soldier that has had a team out looking for Bailee…but she does not know this. There are lots of secrets and Sawyer, along with his team, don’t divulge these with Bailee. Bailee is brought to their compound and is made to feel like one of the group. A budding romance begins between the two …then things go awry. Traitor? Enemy? Zombie? Crazy chaos!

This story starts giving you some essential information to get started, it gets you drawn in, gives you something new to grasp onto with the zombie apocalypse. It’s fast paced and an incredible page turner right to the very end. Love always finds a way but then sacrifice always gets in the way. This is a fantastic story with just the right amount of everything put into one story. There really is something for everyone with this. Even if you aren’t a zombie fanatic you will absolutely enjoy this story. I can’t wait for the next installment. Bring it on!

First thing I have to say is that I love all things zombies, but this is a FIVE star read that got me chomping at the bit and ready for the next installment. It was great to get my hands on a zombie book that is different. Ground Zero is incredibly fascinating. It is a fast paced read that draws you in from the very beginning. It explains all the weird nuances that people noticed were “off” and by the time anyone realizes something is terribly wrong, the world goes to hell in a handbasket. It’s gripping and suspenseful and a bit creepy at times. Reading the story and realizing those nuances could really happen definitely adds to the creep factor. I am hooked and now off to read the next one!

#Zombies #survival #2ndChance – Savage by Jade C. Jamison

Savage

This is an alternate cover edition for B00VF8CLC6.

Kill or Die

Nina Hardwick has had a rough life since leaving high school, but inside she is still the girl looking for a silver lining. The past several years have left their toll on her psyche, and just as she feels like she’s climbing out of a deep abyss, her life and the lives of millions of others fall into shambles as a virus overtakes the country and leaves a plague of undead armies scouring the land.

In a desperate attempt to get away from the infected, Nina and some neighbors speed out of town, nearly killing a man on a motorcycle. When they stop to rescue him, Nina realizes that he is the one man from her past she never got over, the guy who should have been her high school sweetheart until she messed it up. But this unrequited love, Kevin Savage, says he doesn’t even remember her. Or does he?

Nina, Kevin, and her neighbors head to the wilderness and fight to survive not only the plague but also hunger, cold, their inner demons…and even each other. Will they survive and, more importantly, will her heart?

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

OMG! I. AM. BLOWN. AWAY by this book.

I am a big Jade fan but this book is soooo different from anything I have read of hers. I have pretty much read all the books in her library but like 4 so to say I know her writing style wouldn’t be a lie. The anxiety and tension of this book totally sneaks up on you and then BOOM you are a stressed out MESS!! This book is VERY slow but it’s very purposeful in its pace. We, the reader, are in Nina’s mind. We ARE Nina. We get to see her reasons for why she does things and why she feels the way she does. She is a very broken woman because life hasn’t always been easy and she kinda has some “what if’s” playing in her head…..alll those what ifs are about our yummy Mr. Savage……..

Nina and her neighbors end up almost running over Nina’s biggest life regret, Kevin, when trying to get to help Nina’s elderly aunt. The story is the 4 of them making due in a survival situation during the worst possible time to be in the Colorado Mountains. Yes they are homebound essentially and dealing with a few “biters” but the story is not really about the virus but the people. The story is about what people will and won’t do to survive. How people can change to go with the new world or how they break and go a little insane with the new world. I totally think that the characters in this book are actual representations of what can happen if this situation were to arise. The best of couples can fall apart and strangers can become your ally and trusted companion.

Now to all of you “I am not gonna read it because it has zombies in it”…get over it. Zombies are a minimal part of the story. PEOPLE and SURVIVAL are the point of this story. I can tell you I was messaging Jade completely freaking out at parts and then bawling at parts of the story. This book was a book I was eagerly waiting to read. I will not deny it but to say it wasn’t at all what I thought it would be isn’t a lie. I expected a different kind of a book…more action and fighting but what I got was an amazing look into the souls of people. The heart of what makes us a society of good or not good people. I feel that this book is showcasing a whole new level for Jade’s writing abilities. She can write some hot and naughty rockers we all have no doubt but this book and its main character, Nina, is just so deep and inspiring. It really knocked my socks off…..

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging instead of Dirty Dancing, she—like Baby—won’t be put in a corner…or a box. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance—and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, and CHOCOLATE!!! And so do her characters.

Oh, and there’s always a glimmer of hope…because if life doesn’t have that, what’s the damn point?

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I love me some Zombie books.  They are the best. This series did not let me down.  I have previously read book 2 in the series so I was excited to jump into book 1.  Since this book was about a different cast of characters it didn’t matter the order to which you read but seeing as this book does explain the why of the outbreak, I would recommend reading it first.  The characters in this story will cross over into other books with the characters from the next books…did that make sense??  LOL

This book is about brothers, Zeke and Ty, with Zeke’s girlfriend Natalie rounding out the main characters.   The trio is watching the events of the flu epidemic followed by some dirty deeds with the cities drinking water.

The book is fast paced with lots of sext times in the reading as well.  It’s a short novella but you get to see the beginning of the what happened when the city went to hell very quickly during the 4th of July celebration!!

Lone Survivor by Nikki Landis

Zombies make my heart so happy. When my blog got a request to share this books release, I was super excited and reached out to ask for a review copy. OMG am I so happy I did. This book hits all my zombie book expectations…..Zombie encounters, feisty heroine, alpha hero, and plot twists and turns galore! Man was I loving it and unable to put it down!!!

Our heroine, Bailee, is alone after the world went to crap for a year exactly when she stumbles into the hands of the local military group (and uber alpha bossy Sawyer) during a failed scavenger mission. The men know a secret about Bailee, but Sawyer is kinda interested in our feisty girl and wont follow orders just yet to turn her over to the main operations.

We see a lot of push and pull between Saw and Bailee which creates a lot of chemistry!!! But what also is amazing to read, the ZOMBIE ATTACKS!! Yes folks there are a lot of zombies in the book and many different kinds of zombies….this totally made my heart happy. We’ve got slow zombies. We’ve got fast zombies. We’ve got tracker zombies!!? Yikes!!

The books momentum and flow were great for reading. I mean the group was always under attack or in conflict, so it was very fast paced, and action packed!!
