Flesh-eating zombies, dirty sex, and a shattered past…
What’s more dangerous—the man who broke her heart or those trying to eat it?

Fighting to survive, Eve finds herself alone in the world after the Crave—the only parallel of her former life. On the hunt for her sister, she runs into Gage—the first and only boy to have her heart and break it. It’s been four years and he isn’t a boy anymore, nor is he the same person he used to be. Against her better judgment, Eve agrees to stay with him when he divulges information on a safe haven near the small town they grew up in—but that doesn’t mean she has to like it…

Returning home elicits a myriad of emotions that both Eve and Gage thought they had buried. The past and present collide and they are forced to the face bitter deceits that ruined them in the before and threaten to destroy them now…

4 Stars

I may not be that big of a zombie fan, but I did love this book! I love Megan, she’s an awesome and talented writer and this book is just more proof of that.

Eve lives alone in the world after the Crave and she fights to survive. While looking for her sister, she runs in to Gage, the boy who won her heart and broke it. But it’s been four years and he’s not a boy anymore. Eve agrees to stay with him when he divulges information on a safe haven close to the town they grew up in, but that doesn’t mean she likes it.

Megan did a great job in this book! The world-building is very good and she even managed to make it realistic too so it wasn’t hard to get sucked into the book. And I know it’s pretty hard to pull off a dystopian zombie book, but she did it. I’ll admit that I was a bit worried about the sex, but in the end I should’ve known that there’s no need to worry about such things in a book Megan wrote. And yes, those scenes are very well written!

The characters are also awesome in this book! Eve hasn’t had a good life so far and living on her own in a world full of zombies hasn’t made it any easier. And then she sees Gage again. She’s confronted with her past and I loved seeing their relationship grow again. But Olive, Eve’s sister, made me so angry. She really pissed me off. But who knows, maybe there’s a reason for it.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves zombies and steamy scenes in one book! Megan is awesome, so just read it.
