Review of EAT, SLAY, LUZT by Jillian Stone


 From the cover:

Survival tip #1: When you’re caught in the middle of the zombie apocalypse, get a badass partner.

The zombie apocalypse is on, and Lizzy Davis is determined to survive any way she can. As a surgeon, she’s used to saving lives; not cutting into the basal ganglia to make sure the patient stays dead. When the refugee camp is overrun by zombie hordes, Lizzy manages to escape only to run into Black Hawk pilot Chris Oakley in the middle of the Syrian Desert.

Lizzy and Chris fight off zombie attacks as they make their way toward a joint military air base northeast of Kirkuk. Just one problem, they’ll have to pass through the drone-patrolled DMZ— Dead Meat Zone. To get there, they form uneasy alliances with French-Arab commandos and a black ops interrogator who’s slowly rotting before their eyes.

Along the way, Lizzy and Chris manage to find time for each other—the sizzling red-hot lovemaking kind of time. And who knows? They might have a chance at love if they live long enough.

Warning: Features red hot to erotic love scenes

I loved this book! It was a great take on zombies and the Apocalypse. 

I loved the military feel and Lizzy and Chris were a great team fighting the zombies...and some survivors. Lizzy doesn't take any crap and is no weak, whimpering heroine. She kicks ass and isn't afraid to get her hands dirty.

I was saddened by one event in the story, but won't spoil it.  :P

The ending was very satisfying, and left enough of an opening that there could be more stories to tell in this world...maybe even expanding Lizzy and Chris's story.

***NOTE: I'm a huge fan of romance books and The Walking Dead (and Zombieland), this fully satisfied my fandom. :)
