Zombies- as if that wasn’t enough to ruin any girl’s dream of a happily ever after.
Haley Gable has never shied away from a challenge. She’s resilient, headstrong and in love with an equally determined Parker brother.
But now she’s facing her biggest obstacle yet and there might not be a way for her to overcome. Haley is pregnant. In the middle of the Zombie Apocalypse.
She didn’t think things could get more difficult for her after cannibals tried to eat her baby, but the end of world is full of surprises.
Haley and Nelson find themselves on the block at a slave auction, they must think fast if they want to survive the day and stay together. Haley worries the stress isn’t good for the baby and when she’s suddenly faced with painful contractions while evil men bid on her, there isn’t time to think of an escape plan.
She has to save her baby instead of herself.
Love and Decay, Episode Four is the fourth episode in Season Three of a novella series in a Dystopian Romance about Zombies, the end of the world and finding someone to share it with.
This story takes place over multiple episodes, with a release date every two weeks. Approximately 20,000 words.
Word to the wise...don't read this book if you have recently given birth within the last couple of weeks or about to. Higginson will stress you the frick out! (I kid, I kid!) No seriously, it did get a bit tense and I was worried for Haley and Nelson for most of the book. How on earth are they going to make it past this one? Of course they have gotten by in the past by the skin of their teeth...but this time they seem to be lost cause. There doesn't seem to be any hope.
When we get one of these POVs, besides Reagan's, it is definitely a treat. Especially when it is Haley's. I enjoy that girl and wouldn't mind more from her. I love seeing her and Nelson's fierce devotion to one another. Boy, have they came a long way.
Once again, Higginson created a fantastic read that had me eagerly devouring the story. And once again, I am left wondering what is going to happen next. Who are these new characters and can they be trusted? 5 Give Me More Stars!
