Review: Bite Me by P.J. Schnyder

Bite Me (London Undead #1) by P.J. Schnyder
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Few people walk the streets of London since the zombie outbreak, but that's not an issue for Seth. As a werewolf, he can handle himself and save humans reckless enough to take a nighttime stroll. While on patrol he comes across a group of people under attack. The one woman brave enough to take a stand against the zombies catches his eye—and not just because of her way with a gun. Learning the beautiful woman is homeless and fends for herself only intensifies his urge to protect and care for her.

Maisie can't help but admit that she's attracted to her werewolf rescuer. She's drawn to Seth's strength and ferocity, and finds herself opening up to him in ways she never imagined, even though she's determined to not rely on Seth or anyone else. She doesn't want another person to get hurt—or die—for her sake. She has enough scars, physical and emotional, from the last time…

But when Seth realizes something is drawing the zombies to Maisie, there may be nothing he can do to save her…
My Thoughts: I have this sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere sat down with a giant whiteboard and diagrammed all the things that make my heart go pitter patter. And then created this book... just for me. What? It could happen.

So, what sort of things make me swoony? Werewolves? CHECK! Zombies!? CHECK! Fierce chicks who don't let a little thing like a bad leg slow them down? CHECK! Hot kisses? DOUBLE CHECK! World building I can get behind? OH, YEAH!

Let's start at the beginning, shall we? I like werewolves. I like them a lot. I especially like it when they're naked. While these werewolves don't get naked quite as often as I would like (please note that's my totally subtle request for more nudity in the next book. *innocent look*), there was some nicely naughty nudity. So, score on that point! Seth... well, I liked him. He might have a little anger issue when certain topics are brought up but that's to be expected. He's honorable and he SAVES KITTENS. *swoons, complete with a dramatic hand to forehead* Seth, you had me when you smashed that first zombie's brain into mush.

Then we have Maisie. Again, I liked her. She might be on her own but that doesn't make her helpless. She can shoot straight and she gives awesome head... shots. She's fierce and she protects the people she can. That's not to say that her nighttime rambles are the best idea ever (they're not) but sometimes you do crazy things during the zombie apocalypse. I GET THAT.

I seriously have a craving for more set in this world. I like the city on the edge feeling. I like the pack dynamics. I like that there's one wolf out there trying to figure out why all this is happening.

More please. MOAR!
