Review: LOVE AND DECAY, #10 by Rachel Higginson

Zombies- as if that wasn’t enough to ruin any girl’s dream of a happily ever after.

Reagan and crew have finally found some place permanent to stay. Tyler’s childhood friend Gage runs a storage facility turned apartment complex and has offered them shelter, safety and a permanent residence for however long they want it.

It sounds too good to be true.

The problem with living in the Zombie Apocalypse is that most things that sound too good to be true usually are.

And among concerns about Tyler’s crazy dad, Matthias Allen, stopping over for a visit, Reagan still has to deal with Kane.

When Kane becomes a difficult prisoner, Reagan is sent to deal with him. A few unlucky circumstances later and Reagan must learn to trust Kane with not only her safety, but also her life. On the run from a horde of Zombies, Reagan and Kane must fight together to stay alive.

But before they’re out of danger, Reagan is going to have to compromise parts of herself she didn’t know were up for debate.

Can Reagan get back to Hendrix alive? Or worse, without Kane marking part of her heart?

Love and Decay, Episode Ten, is the tenth in 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.

My take...
Could the groups trek to the South finally be coming to an end? It looks as if they are finally coming to terms that it may be time to quit traveling and put down some roots, if even for a little bit. Now the only problem left to contend with is Kane…the big, broody elephant in the room.

Kane was attractive, gorgeous even. And he had this whole aura of mystery that was a little bit enticing, if I was honest with myself. But that was it.
On the inside he was a hollow, cruel person that lost his moral compass a while ago. The moments he was anything more were just that, moments…glimpses of a person that ceased to exist when Zombies became out reality.

Going to be flat out honest with you...the ending to this one sucked. Big time. Higginson did another amazing job writing this one and giving us another nail biting, suspenseful read. But really? I am just not liking the predicament that Reagan has found herself once again. This girl is marked for bad luck and poor company. Ugh! There was supposed to be chocolates and flowers at the end. This is not the romance I signed up for. Where is my chocolates and flowers and declarations of love??

All sarcasm aside, I did really love this one. It definitely has you thinking and wondering what is going to happen with Reagan. Not going to give away what situation she has found herself in, but it is a doozy. All I know Hendrix is going to come in blazing in the next one that is for sure. He has to! I just hate that we have to wait 2 whole weeks before we get to see it.

As the series continues, the intensity and suspense increases with every turn of the page. This series is a must read for anyone with a zombie fetish and a love for romance. And even though I complained about the ending and how it sucked...5 stars all the way!
