Review: Flesh by Kylie Scott

Synopsis: Ali has been hiding in an attic since civilization collapsed eight weeks ago. When the plague hit, her neighbors turned into mindless, hungry, homicidal maniacs. Daniel has been a loner his entire life. Then the world empties and he realizes that being alone isn't all it's cracked up to be. Finn is a former cop who is desperate for companionship, and willing to do anything it takes to protect the survivors around him. When the three cross paths they band together; sparks fly, romance blooms in the wasteland and Ali, Daniel and Finn bend to their very human needs in the ruins of civilization. Lust, love and trust all come under fire in Flesh as the three battles to survive, hunted through the suburban wastelands. (from the description)

Review: This is essential a paranormal erotic romance set in a zombie infected Australia. I enjoyed this take on zombie literature, being that is didn't focus too much on why the zombies happened. It did give an mostly accurate portrayal of what humans would do - the good and the bad. The romance was....meh. Mostly, it wasn't about love, but lust, convenience and dependence. But that stuff happens when people are scared and desperate. If you like steamy romances in sci-fi settings, this book is for you. If you don't like zombies or graphic romance scenes, stay away.

Prude Note: There is graphic M/F and M/M/F sex. You can skip it, but it does make up a larger-then-normal portion of the prose.
