Book Review: Hungry For Your Love

This is what’s on the back jacket (the most important stuff):

Romance ain’t dead…it’s undead. In this thrilling zombie anthology, horror fans will finally get their fill of zombie-on-zombie action, zombie-human love, and zombie smut. Because why should all the vampires have all the fun?

The book was edited by Lori Perkins. She’s the editorial director of and president of L. Perkins Agency, a New York literacy agency that specializes in horror, fantasy, erotica, and pop culture. She is the author of four non-fiction books and has edited a dozen anthologies.

On with Shelly’s review:

I picked up this book for $14.99. Bought it for the love of Stacey Graham. Found it interesting. Sometimes found it hard to get into. Couldn’t imagine sweetman as a zombie. My Virginia would probably freak and completely shut down if a zombie d… entered her.

Like the little diddy above says, its about zombie-on-zombie action, zombie-human-love, and zombie smut. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, if you’re into dead decaying bodies having sex, read it. If you’re into dead decaying bodies having sex with humans, go for it. If you’re into kinky-zombie sex, hurry, get yourself a copy. Maybe your Mojo will live on, too.

My favorite anthologies involved humans getting all hot and bothered after they blew out some zombie brains or, the one only sweet zombie romance minus the sex parts. Here’s a list of my favorites:

Romance Ain’t Dead by Jeremy Wagner: This ones about a wife whose head gets bonked by a speed boat during a midnight dip. Hubby and the family doctor perform Voo-doo and bring her back as a zombie. The perfect Stepford wife for you fellas.

Eye of the Beholder by Stacey Graham: This is a sweet romance of two zombies meeting. The main character is worried about how her suitor sees her. So, so sweet.

Captive Hearts by Brian Keen: This one’s about revenge. The main character, still a human, feeds her boss’s body parts, one by one, to her quadriplegic zombie husband (employers beware…treat your employees with care).

Apocalypse as Foreplay: Loved it! Two humans get hot and bothered while battling an army of zombies.

Inhuman Resources by Jeanine McAdams: Too funny! Main character is hired only to find out she’s lunch (This is why potential employees need to interview their employers).

Last Times at Ridgemont High: A high school boy finds himself trapped in a high school with a human school teacher and a cheerleader. Everyone else has gone zombie on them while they get it on.

That wraps up my review for now. Check out my interview of Stacey Graham.

That’s all for now folks!!!

Happy blogging, reading, and writing!!
