Romance author Simone Kent thinks she might just have found the most perfect guy in all of New York City—in bed and out. But Drake Parrish is about as far from perfect as any man can get. Eight years ago, he was cursed by an evil Voodoo priestess to live part of his life as a zombie. Since then he has lived like a recluse on New York’s Upper East Side, afraid to go out for fear he’ll suddenly turn into one of the walking dead.
The sex is the hottest either of them has ever experienced and Simone discovers just how naughty she can be with Drake, while he finds himself experiencing things for Simone that he hasn’t felt in a very long time. When the Voodoo priestess learns of their relationship, however, she comes after him again. She’s determined he won’t have a future with Simone, even if that means killing both him and the woman he loves.
When the two words “romance” and “zombies” are used to describe a book, what is one to think? For me, after reading Dead Sexy, my thoughts were a whirlwind of “wow”. Paige Tyler made this work. With a great blend of mystery, intrigue, suspense, and action, and not to forget the love scenes, Dead Sexy kept me going long into the late hours of the night. The hair on the back of my neck stood, and chills ran down my spine. This book took me by surprise at how much I enjoyed it.
This book somewhat reminded me of Beauty and the Beast. Drake, of course, resembles the Beast, as he was cursed eight years ago, and changed his life. He became a loner and hid himself from the world. Simone, a published romance writer, enlists his help by the recommendation of someone, and the two meet and begin dating. Simone is unaware of his curse at first, until the Voodoo Priestess that cursed him catches wind of Drakes new found happiness.
I love how new themes and story lines come into the romance genre all the time. There's always something new and exciting to read. I never thought I would enjoy a romance book so much that involved zombies, but I did. If you're looking for a different read, filled with adventure, excitement, and chills, then give Dead Sexy a try.
