Die For You by Michele Mills

Love, in a hopeless place.

Two months after a virus took out civilization, Rachel Donnelly is the last living soul in California, as far as she can tell. Until she runs into a Marine sniper, battle-hardened but alive and healthy.

Adam Sanchez would love nothing more than a slamming session of I-can’t-believe-we’re-alive post-apocalyptic sex in the back of his Hummer. But Rachel’s fragility, inexperience—and much younger age—hold him back from exposing her to his raw, aggressive sexuality. If anything, Rachel needs protection. Especially from himself.

As they band together with other survivors to battle feral animals, violent ex-cons, and motorcycle clubs jockeying for power, Rachel grows stronger in mind, body, and spirit—strong enough to give the dangerously sexy Marine what they both crave.

The power of their passion rocks Adam’s world, bringing him to his knees—which, he discovers too late, is the worst possible place to be when danger springs from the shadows.

Warning: Contains a sexy Marine, a tattooed ex-con, a girl who blossoms into a sexually assured young woman, laughter despite the pain, m/f/m ménage, hope, love, and more bad language and violence than are strictly necessary.

Rachel and Adam have both survived a plague that has killed most of the planet's population. Both searching for signs of other human life, they meet on a freeway. I was surprised that in their first meeting, each of them was thinking about how hot the other was. Particularly Adam, who was clearly looking forward to getting Rachel into bed.

The prominence of the romance and sexual relationship of our characters initially surprised me and I wasn't sure it was going to work. But it does. The relationship between Adam and Rachel shares top billing with their fight for survival. Ultimately, this keeps the story from becoming too heavy, and parts of it are fun and sexy and have the usual romance dramas. We also have plenty of action as they deal with issues with other survivors and wild animals.

Die for You is a fast-paced, engaging story and I read it up in less than a day. I couldn't put it down. This is a really good take on the end of the world type book and I will definitely be reading the next book in this series.

Michele Mills grew up in California reading more romance, sci-fi and historical fiction books than was reasonable for a girl her age. Eventually, this unhealthy obsession morphed into a passion for writing sexy romance novels. Michele believes happily-ever-afters make the world go ‘round and punishing kisses aren’t just the stuff of dreams. Most days she can be found teaching high school English to unruly teenagers and cooking for her husband and two sons. You can find her pretending to be professional on both Twitter and Facebook.
