Nothing says Christmas like droves of the undead...
All Emery wants for Christmas is someone to share it with. It looks like he might finally be getting his wish in Ross, the sexy customer he's been crushing on for months. But neither of them counted on the zombies, or on being caught in the worst blizzard in half a century. Even with a plan for contending with the zombie hordes, surviving will take a miracle.
It's not exactly how Emery dreamed of spending Christmas with Ross, but he can’t think of a better way to spend a zombie apocalypse.
Emery is feeling lonely because the diner customer he has been crushing on for the last few months has not come by tonight. It's not unexpected because it is Christmas Eve. Much to Emery's surprise, Ross bursts into the diner just a few minutes later, followed by....a Zombie.
I particularly liked this book because the zombies are zombies. They are undead creatures who eat brains, are hard to kill and look gross. There are none of those zombies with a heart of gold or zombies who really remember who they are...deep down inside. Yay for slicing up zombies with butcher knives and running them over with cars!!!
This is a zombie apocalypse tale worthy of the title. Add to that Ross' sweet and capable need to keep Emery safe and Emery's determination and trust, you get a m/m romance tale also worthy of the title. I would definitely recommend this book, especially if you are tired of overly sappy and ridiculous holiday stories that abound this time of year!!! 4 Quills.
PS If there is ever a real zombie apocalypse I am totally headed over to Ross' cabin. Guns, a generator and lots of man love, what more could you ask for? =)
