Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I received a copy of this book from Xpresso in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This was a deep read. If you judge the book by the cover or title it seems like a fun, silly college kid story.  There are so many layers to this story and it really grabs you and pulls you in.  Throughout the entire story it hints at deeper and darker but doesn’t quite get you to there until the end, which was kind of nice rather than the entire story being dark and heavy. It made you believe there was more there but kept you guessing just what that was. 

The romance part of the story was sweet, frustrating, funny, serious, sad, and sexy. It starts out one way and you follow the path of the romance as you read deeper into it. The way that it was written was completely believable and was written in a way that puts the girl in a better light than could have been, which was semi-refreshing from real life in situations such as this in which the girl or even guy would have been given a few names. When your heart knows who it loves, I believe that no one else can fill that void. The story in this book is written in a similar fashion with a similar belief.

This story touches on depression and suicide. If either of these topics are triggers please head this warning.  Otherwise, I would absolutely suggest reading this story.

Kate L. Mary is a stay-at-home mother of four and an Air Force wife. She grew up in a small town just north of Dayton, Ohio where she and her husband met at the age of twelve. Since their marriage in 2002, they have lived in Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and California.

Kate enjoys any post-apocalyptic story – especially if zombies are involved – as long as there is a romantic twist to give the story hope. Kate prefers nerdy, non-traditional heroes who can make you laugh to hunky pieces of man-meat, and her love of wine and chocolate is legendary among her friends and family. She currently resides in Oklahoma with her husband and children.

Be sure to check out her bestselling BROKEN WORLD series, now on the top 100 book in dystopian and post-apocalyptic fiction on Amazon.
