Dead Sexy by Paige Tyler Review



I was a little skeptical about how Tyler would manage to make a zombie a sexy male protagonist. I just couldn't picture it. The little I knew of zombies did not exactly put them onto my hot and sexy list. I imagined a heroine having to say things like "Babe, is this your ear I found on the floor?" I know that's silly, but I honestly couldn't picture finding rotting flesh and scary moaning sexy. Never fear, Tyler takes care of all of that for the reader. Drake is not fully a zombie and Simone definitely doesn't find out about his little problem until after all of the fireworks happen. 

This book is well written and I liked the reason why Drake ended up becoming a zombie, talk about a life lesson hard learned. You do not want to give an old Voodoo priestess a reason to be extremely mad at you! I was not a big fan of the self pleasuring scenes in the book, but that's a personal quirk and does not mean it didn't make sense for the story because it actually fit in well, it just wasn't my cup of tea. 

If you are looking for a Halloween read that is not scary, with just a little bit of creepy this is a good one. There are some real zombies in this and just the thought of them gave me the willies. The motivation behind the Voodoo priestess' serious anger is creepy too, but at least it explained why she went all bat crap crazy when Drake accidentally disturbed her plans. There's a little hint in the end that there will be a possible sequel when Aniyah questions the healing of a wound Drake has. I hope that if there is a sequel that Beck and Aniyah are fleshed out a bit more and we learn a little bit more about them as well.This book is a bargain at 99 cents at Amazon so it's definitely worth giving a try.

Happy Reading!

Synopsis

Can her love save him from a curse worse than death?

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 feeling things for Simone 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.
