In the Pacific Northwest, where life hurries to keep pace with technology, a re-animated bride named Josie struggles to escape her creator and to find her identity in the half-erased circuitry of her mind and body. Assassin Bane Connor just wants to get the girl to the Zombie Underground and receive his payoff—a mental reset that will erase his memories as well as his guilt. But an attack by a rival faction derails his rescue, and the wide-eyed female whose circuitry requires a husband tears at his hardened heart and ignites desire like he’s never known. Acting as Josie’s spouse-substitute is tougher than Bane expected. The newborn stein needs touch to live, and wanting her is a complication he doesn’t need. To make matters worse, she sees into the darkest recesses of his mind. The last thing a killer wants is for his lover to read his thoughts, but if Josie can love him the way he’s programmed, perhaps Bane can find a way to heal his past.My Thoughts: Oh, guys. OH, GUYS! I swear to you that this book was written expressly for me! There are zombie-type folk who fall in love and have dirty, dirty sex while being hunted down by a nefarious evil corporation. BLISS! Did I mention the part about the dirty sexin'? That was niiiiiice.
Bane and Josie have excellent chemistry. Even when he's trying to keep his distance, Bane is drawn to her. Her particular quirk (needing touch to survive) puts him in the position of getting very personal, very fast. And it worked. It totally worked. I loved that Josie was basically a clean slate when it came to sex. She got to learn things as they happened. I liked that and I loved that Bane had the opportunity to explain what to call his parts. *thumbs up*
Honest to gosh, I had a lot of fun with this book. It had the sexin' I like, the bad guys who were creepy-scary, and enough sparks to set a house on fire. Zombie love! Who knew it could be so fun???
