{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} Run (NOLA Zombies #1) - By Gillian Zane


Author: Gillian Zane 
Release Date: 5/26/2015 
Purchase Info: Amazon   
Zombies are on the loose in New Orleans and of all the End of the World scenarios, Alexis Winter wasn’t prepared for this one. But, an apocalypse is an apocalypse and she should have this covered. She has been “prepping” for the last three years. The problem is location and timing. She’s stuck downtown and she has to get to her house on the outskirts of the city so she can get her supplies and bug-in (for the “non-preppers” this means hole up and stay safe).

Agreeing to work on a Saturday is now coming back to bite her on the ass big time. Hopefully, it won’t be a literal bite by the walking dead.

Luck favors the prepared, and as luck would have it, it comes in the form of the ridiculously hot Blake Miller. Former military man, current mercenary, Blake Miller, the man with the plan, his goal: steal a boat and trek up the Mississippi until they find safety. Alexis thinks this is a great plan and she decides to team up with Blake. The two team up in unexpected ways as they find they can’t keep their hands off of each other even when the world is falling down around them.

Can Alexis and Blake survive the end of the world, and if they do make it through the night, find a place that is safe and secure? Can their newfound attraction lead them down the road to love or heartbreak?

Zombies, sex, romance and carnage…you can’t get any better than this.

First Came Zombies....then came Love....

Alexis is a prepper, but not like the crazy ones on the forums she visits that say the "Zombie Apocalypse" is coming!

She just doesn't want to be up shit creek without a paddle like she has in the past. Who knew that her one Saturday of extra work would end up with people eating people & her with the man of wildest dreams.

During the first few chapters with Alexis & Blake were thought out and my kind of Zombie book, then you add a little spice & blam  they're all over each other like white on rice. Though the sexy scenes in this book made me blush, I really felt as though the book went by wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too fast.

The pace was super quick, and though there were times when I felt like the sex might get one of them eaten, Blake or Alexis did something to redeem the situation. About 60% or so into the book you start to learn about Blake, his background and who he's involved with. Apparently he's some super badass solider, that leads a bunch of other badass soldiers. Mercenaries with the equipment to hopefully survive this shit storm, as well as help others along the way. The only factor to this group of guys that I'm unsure about it Zach......there's just something about him that rubs me wrong. He's a little creeper, sorry to those who might love him, I just couldn't get into his "watcher" mode.

Towards the end of the book the paced seemed to quicken, which could have been a great opportunity to go a little more in depth with the details of where they all ended up & how's they're dealing with that. The author touched on it, but then with the abrupt ending and how quickly emotions were laid out on the line I will have to say I was not a fan of the ending....cliffhanger and all. I will say that it will lead into one hell of a 2nd book & potentially a fantastic series.
