Netgalley ARC Review - Waking Up Dead by Emma Shortt!


You know your life has hit rock bottom when you’re living off cooked rats and showering once every few months—if you’re lucky. But for Jackson Hart things are about to get a whole lot worse. When her best friend, Tye, disappears hunting for food, kick-ass Jackson’s ‘head south to safety’ plan looks like it’s dead before it’s even begun. But then she meets ex-mechanic Luke Granger, who takes her to his bunker, feeds her with non-rat based food, and offers her protection against the zombie hordes—not that she needs it. She knows how to use a machete and isn’t afraid to.

Jackson might have been tempted to stay in the city with her rescuer. Food, shampoo and the possibility of finally getting laid, what more could she ask for? But the flesh eaters are getting smarter and when the bunker is compromised, Jackson and Luke have no choice but to make the journey south.

Luke and Jackson team up to find other humans in a road-trip romance for the ages. Travelling for thousands of miles with zombies shadowing their every move they must utilize every resource at their disposal…and then some. On the way, they discover that even if flesh eating zombies are knocking down their door, there’s always time for sex and maybe even for love.


Looking for that sexy post-apocalyptic romance with little bits of humor and plenty of zing? Then "feast" your eyes on Waking Up Dead by Emma Shortt! This book had it all: thrilling plot, a sexy hero, sassy heroine, and some ridiculously smart zombies! I was sitting on the edge of my seat the whole time while reading this. Between the zombies which seem to be getting smarter and a little more organized, we have some super sexy moments between Jackson and Luke. Plus a TON of gore as these two find safety among the walking dead. Super good!

The sex sizzles as danger surrounds them. I loved the banter between these two, and enjoyed immensely how Luke wanted to take care of Jackson. I mean in a zombie apocalypse, I would want a man who can provide as well as protect. Not to mention that it was nice to see a woman who knew how to take care of herself as well but who has no problems seeing the appeal of a man taking care of a woman. A very action-packed, romantic story with awesome characters.

Waking Up Dead got a SUPER CHARGED FOUR AND A HALF SHOOTING STARS! I am excited about reading the second book and have no doubts it will be just as good as the first book. Write away Emma Shortt!
