Review: Undead Much? (Megan Berry #2) by Stacey Jay

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Megan Berry—Zombie Settler extraordinaire—just wants Pom Squad to trounce Cheer Team in this freakishly funny follow-up to You Are So Undead to Me. But someone's turning coma victims into settler-resistant ├╝ber-zombies—and everyone thinks it's Megan's fault! Well, except for super-creepy male cheerleader Aaron. (Ew!)

Meg's also being stalked by a hot—albeit undead— seer named Cliff. Can Cliff's premonitions help Megan stop a zombies-on-ice deathscapade and discover who's really behind the coma-killer crusade before an entire army of undead rise up? And when Megan's boyfriend Ethan grows jealous of Cliff, will it end their intra-settler romance?
My Thoughts:  Have I ever mentioned that I have a thing for zombies?  Not a sexy thing, mind you, because I really can't get past the whole rotting flesh issue.  I mean, imagine coming away with a handful of face when you're in the middle of a sexy kissing session.  YUCK.  Instead, I find them incredibly creepy and the idea of this relentless, hungry horde dogging your footsteps and slowly closing off all avenues of escape.... *shudder*

So, yeah.  Zombies.  I think they're kinda cool.  I love Stacey Jay's take on them.  Under normal circumstances I wouldn't think that reading about zombies would be a light, breezy way to spend an afternoon but Stacey Jay does it and does it well.  Megan Berry is fabulous.  She has all this power yet she's still just this normal girl who's struggling to find herself and make sense out of her life.

All in all, this was a well written, well paced book with enough swoon inducing kisses thrown in to keep me happy.  Plus, there were, you know, the zombies.  Which I have a thing for.
