Save Me Review and GIVEAWAY
Andi was doing just fine
on her own. Sure the world had been hit with an outbreak that turned anyone
infected into flesh eating zombies. Not to mention that everyone she ever loved
was now dead. She was alive though, taking care of herself. She had little
desire to indulge in building relationships with anyone. People just couldn't
be trusted. Whether they screwed you over intentionally, or just managed to get
themselves killed, no one stuck around for very long. She didn't need anyone
else either. That was until Will showed up to save her.
Will, with his sparkling
green eyes, lips you just wanted to taste, and insanely adorable crooked smile,
wasn't letting Andi get rid of him so easily. Yet still, Andi did everything
she could to push her feelings, and Will, away. The more time they spent
together though, the more difficult that became. In a world where another day
was not something you could count on, wasting even a single moment, could mean
missing out on your only chance for happiness.
"Andi," He took my chin into his hand, gently lifting it to meet his sparkling gaze. "The last thing I want to do is leave you." A tear escaped down my face and he wiped it away with his thumb, pulling me against him. I could hear his heart thump loudly in his chest and smell that familiar scent so unique to him. I wanted to stay there like that forever, forget the rest of the world. Will took a long deep breath into my hair and nudged me back to look in my eyes.
"You don't want me to leave, do you?"
"No." was all I could manage. I wanted to tell him I couldn't bear the thought of him leaving, that I didn't even want to leave the middle of this street for fear of the distance that had been between us this week would return. He leaned down closer, his breath warm against my face, his lips almost touching mine.
"Good." Will gave me one of his signature crooked smiles.
Zombies, hot guys, kick ass females, and a super sweet love story? There is seriously nothing NOT to love about this YA zombie apocalypse book. The writing was flawless and the characters were extremely likeable, especially Will...
The story was refreshingly different from any of the books I have read lately, and while there were moments in the plot that made me feel a tad frustrated, I still absolutely enjoyed it as a whole. I do have to say that for a zombie book, there was not a lot of blood and gore like you see in The Walking Dead, but the story was still fast-paced and had plenty of action. The ending actually left me a little unfulfilled, in that I wanted more to the story, so I seriously hope LJ Baker writes a sequel because I HAVE to know what happens with Andi and Will!! Save Me gets 4 out of 5 stars and is highly recommended!
Happy Reading, Y'all! :-)
