My Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
From the Publisher:
Zombies aren’t scary, undead corpses searching for brains. They are just sweet guys seeking male essence to survive. At twenty-three the transition completes, keeping them forever young—as long as they receive male ejaculate. Club Zombie offers a haven for zombies, providing sexy ways to extract what they need from the patrons, and opportunity to find their destined mate.
Alex Waterman learned from an early age to believe he was vile, and to feel ashamed of his “unnatural desires”. His life is a desolate place of suffering until he discovers… it’s not his life. Suddenly he’s swept away to Club Zombie, where he belongs. In this world, his desires aren’t evil, they’re a mark of the dominant he’s born to be, and instead of fear and loathing, he receives appreciative stares and aggressive flirting. But casual sex isn’t on the menu: Alex seeks “the one” to complete the piece of his soul he never knew he was missing until he looked for it.
Roommate Ulrich calls to Alex, a self-destructive Cutter who needs grounding, and an element of irresistible danger that clings to bad boy Storm. Alex must decide between three tempting possibilities, but which one will fill his void? Maybe he should keep them all… Only, how is a dominant, orgasm-fearing virgin going to manage three virile men?
When I first started reading MM this authors Dark Angels Series was one of the first things I read. She immediately became a favourite. Zallora always gives us imperfect characters full of fun and snark and they always have to put a little work in to get their happy endings. Oh and all her characters are HOT!
Zallora has created a world of Zombies but they are certainly not Zombies that we have all grown up to recognise. You will not find them sucking brains or walking like they have rigor mortis. No, these Zombies are sexy and looking for their mates. The one thing they need to survive is male essence – yep they need spunk!
We met Ulrich briefly in the first book of the series and as we start this book he is whisked away to live in America at the ‘Zombie commune’ as his uncle has once again been abusing him. Re-united with his cousin he soon settles into life and has no problem at all coming to terms with his new life.
His roommate Alex is delicate and damaged and in desperate need of cuddle and human/zombie touch. Beaten constantly by his now deceased mother his fear and sometimes disgust with himself is still ingrained. The more time he spends with Ulrich the more he comes out of his shell but he is constantly warring with his emotions. As shy as he is he sometimes feels the overriding need to dominate and this leaves him even more confused.
Cutler and Storm are two humans who have been spending a lot of time at Club Zombie. Cutler or Cutter to his friends is very aptly named and has some serious problems that he is working through. He is in love with his best friend Storm, who has his own issues, but knows that Storm only wants him as a friend.
Ulrich knows that Cutler is his mate but is unable to do anything about it until his transition on his 19th birthday. He feels torn between wanting his mate and the love he feels for his best friend Alex. He is also surprised to find himself with feeling for Storm leaving him very confused and frustrated.
When Alex finally seeks advice about his growing unrest and feelings of dominance it appears that the situation between the 4 men may not be as dire as he first thought. With another transition in his very near future he must become strong enough to be able to give the men in his life what they need….but first he get over his refusal to either masturbate or orgasm and then he must convince them it is possible.
Another winner from Z!!!
