Usually, I'm all about romance novels; Nicholas Sparks, Catherine Anderson, etc. etc.
Little did I know, I was MyFitnessPal friends with the co-author of these 2 books, Cindy Bouchard.She runs a fitness challenge I am in, and made a post about her book being free on Amazon in recognition of Halloween. So I stumbled over to Amazon and downloaded the book.
I started reading it, and I was hooked! I kept wanting to turn the page... more and more and more. I finished it fast, and moved on to the sequel. I was scared the sequel would be not-as-good because sequels tend to do that. Now, I have a major soft spot for the first one, but the sequel was very good!
The first book follows a mans journey through the start of the apocalypse. He befriends a rebellious man, who is the father to the main character of the second book. I appreciate that these 2 books are connected in that way. I won't get into any more detail, as I hate spoilers.
There is so much action & a little steaminess in both these books, and I think that's why I enjoyed it so much. I would not let my kids read these... they can read it when they are 20+ (haha!)
I read both books in a month, and I am sad there isn't a 3rd, but I'm going to assume it's in the making. When it comes out, I will read it, guaranteed!
Thanks to these books, I was introduced to a whole new genre that I wouldn't typically explore. Now, I'm open to read many more styles of books!
5/5 stars for the duo.
