(Spolier Alert: Do not read unless you’ve read the previous two books in the Living With The Dead series.)

If you’re familiar with some of my more recent reviews, you’ll know I’m a big fan of the Living With The Dead series. So I was very excited to sink my teeth into (no zombie pun intended) Eat Slay Love by Jesse Petersen and read it in just a few days.

Picking up where Flip This Zombie left off, Sarah and David are making their way to the Midwest wall in hopes of passing off the vial of the cur...more
Toujours aussi drôle et déjanté. David est "surprenant", et le couple rencontre 2 nouveaux personnages dont la dynamique est assez amusante. On a toujours notre lot irrévérencieux de petites références musicales, people, geek. ^^ J'ai adoré le particulier McCray, ex chanteur has been de boys band (rien que ça) toujours défoncé, et qui semble dans le vent.

Maintenant la question est de savoir s'il y aura une suite parce que David et Sarah sont devenus un de mes couples littéraires fétiches. A quan...more
A series where each new book is better than the last.

The Living with The Dead series should be a sitcom. It’d be the anti-The Walking Dead. I don’t know what it is about these books, be it the current pop culture references or that Shaun of the Dead/Zombieland kind of feel, but I really like them. The lines are genuinely funny, there’s plenty of action and zombie gore, and it’s a perfect length for this kind of story. In short, it certainly packs a punch (or in this case, a shotgun). If you wan...more

This is the third (and last) book in the Living With The Dead series by Jesse Petersen. And after enjoying the hell out of the other two, I couldn't wait to get stuck into this one.

Sarah and David now have a new mission--they've got the zombie cure and are making their way towards the Wall to make sure it gets into the right hands. Sure, there might not even be a Wall, but it's worth the effort. So they continue to trek across the country, stumbling on other survivors along the way. Here, they m...more

In Flip This Zombie David and Sarah fight off bionic zombies created by the evil Dr. Kevin who regardless of his reasoning behind creating these 'super' zombies also managed to invent a cure (or vaccine... maybe) for the zombie infection!

Since the Zombie Apocalypse went down, there have been rumors about the Midwest Wall (WIN... that means I'm safe!!!) Sarah and David are slowly making their way toward the Wall, with the zombie cure- hoping that it actually exists!

In route to the Wall, they happ...more
Eat Slay Love is a highly funny, super fast paced, action packed thriller of a read. This is book 3 in the series and the first I have read, so you could pick up the series at any book. Jesse Petersen's witty, sarcastic and very snappy writing is fantastic and like nothing I have ever read before.

Sarah and David are in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. They are en route to the Mid West Wall, in the hopes of finding civilisation. The pair kept me entertained throughout, they work perfect as a t...more
I knew nothing about Jesse Petersen, nor had I ever heard of this book. I didn’t know her style, what she wrote about, or anything else she had written.

Ten pages into Eat Slay Love and I was absolutely kicking myself that I had not discovered her earlier. What the heck had I been doing that I was completely oblivious to this funny, witty, absolutely delightful series about a married couple living through the zombie apocolypse?? This is the third book in the Living with the Dead series, and as so...more
At the end of the second Married With Zombies novel, Flip This Zombie, the unthinkable happened: during a fight with a zombie, Dave was bitten on the hand. Fortunately it happened at a secret research facility headed up by a mad scientist and Sarah showed up in the nick of time with a cure to the infection. Now, armed with a vial of the cure, which they hope can be used to end the Zombie Apocalypse, they travel to what may only exist as a legend: The Midwest Wall, beyond which people are said to...more
Eat, Slay, Love is the perfect continuation of Flip this Zombie . The story automatically picks up from where it left off with David just barely being saved from becoming a zombie himself.

The same funny comments that I’ve become to expect from Jesse Petersen did not disappoint either; however, I do wish that she would change up the story a bit. It’s always: keep heading towards the Wall, pick up supplies, kill some zombies, find some weird random human that will eventually die, find crazy people...more
Humorous and scary at the same time, a real zombie adventure. This book takes you places you never hope to see and it does it with a sense of humor. The main characters are a couple just out of couple therapy, full of witty comments and love for each other.
Dave and Sarah race across the US to reach the safe zone in Illinois. The world has been eaten by brain craving zombies. They shot, cut and blow there way along their path meeting some a few unique characters along the way. My favorite being a...more

The more I read of this author the more I enjoy. I love this zombie series and eagerly waiting the next installment
Emmy Campbell
Look, this book made me happy, and that is why it gets 5 stars. If you made it this far into the series of Living With the Dead, by Jesse Peterson, you know what to expect. But, unlike the previous books. This one was just so good. All my previous reviews were 4 stars and this book bumped it up to 5. Why because I honestly can't think of anything that would make this book better. i just want to hug it. Yeah yeah. Hug a zombie novel. It's true though!

Look, again. If you are looking for hard hitti...more

Loved this book! Jesse Peterson does the Zombie Genre very well. Her splash of humor makes me snort with laughter. Highly recommend this entire series, can't wait for the next one.

Stavolta do una stellina in più. Non so se è perché questo terzo volume sia migliore dei precedenti o perché ormai mi sono affezionata a Sarah e Dave (soprattutto Dave!), ma mi è piaciuto davvero più degli altri due. I consigli di auto-aiuto durante un'apocalisse zombie sono sempre divertenti, ma che mi divertono particolarmente sono i riferimenti a tutti i film di zombie e alla cultura nerd in generale. E per una fissata dei film di Resident Evil come me, questo è uno degli aspetti migliori del...more
I love this series. even more so now that I know there is a fourth. Sarah and David stumble upon a woman needing help. She's a reporter. Then they get hijacked by a crazy town that has their own laws and decide to sacrifice David. who by the way is immune to zombies. It might be because he is a half zombie. anyways they don't want his brains. They get away. Then they go find a hospital since they need supplies. They find a rocker dude. Then they all high tail it to the wall. Very awesome story b...more

Sum It Up: Jesse Petersen's "Eat Slay Love" is a fictional novel set in the United States after the events of a zombie apocalypse. We follow Sarah and David on their journey as they push themselves to their physical and emotional limits while avoiding being torn apart by hordes of zombies. As they travel across the country in search of the safety of the Midwest Wall, David and Sarah will run into more obstacles than just the living dead which will test the bond between them and their trust of ot...more
Fangs for the Fantasy
Sarah and Dave are heading towards the rumoured Midwest wall; with the cure for being a zombie in their pocket. Quite literally a test-tube that could save the country, possibly the world

David, meanwhile, is changing. Since he was bitten by a zombie and cured, he hasn’t been quite human. And while this comes with certain advantages, it also comes with a whole lot of worries.

Not least of which is trying to keep it – and a secret – from their new companions. The aging, perpetually stoned rocker is...more

A further month after the events of Flip This Zombie, Eat Slay Love details life after Dave’s zombie bite and subsequent cure. It worked. Dave is still in one piece, he’s just a little.. different. And people are starting to notice. In particular, one stalkerazzi reporter, Nicole, who they meet. She ends up being a little more useful than expected on their way to the Midwest Wall to share the cure with somebody who could do some good with it and of course, finally, safety.

Now that I’ve read the...more

I really enjoyed the first book in the series, ‘Married with Zombies’ and thought it was a unique take on the genre’s leading characters. Dave and Sarah are married you see, and just before the zombie apocalypse they were on the verge of divorce. But nothing brings you together more than the world around going to shit and Sarah and Dave found their love for one another growing again, and surprisingly they made a pretty good team.

*Sigh...* I love this series. This is the third book in the Living With the Dead series, and it's awesome. Perfect funny, fluffy, reading with a bit of gore. Seriously, if you like zombie movies like Zombieland, or Shaun of the Dead... this will be perfect for you. Like the cover says, the series is a romantic comedy, but takes place amidst a bunch of zombie-killin'. But warning, there will be a bit of spoilers so read the other books in the series first.

So the book starts off where the last one...more

Sarah and David have made it a long way through the zombie apocalypse. They have survived flesh-eating marriage counselors, crazy cults, bionic zombies, and even a zombie bite. Now they are headed further East, to the Midwestern Wall, where safety hopefully awaits them. The only problem is that no one they have met along the way can confirm the existence of a Wall.

In this third installment in the Living with the Dead series, readers meet two new characters: stalkerazzi television journalist Nico...more

Eat Slay Love starts straight where Flip This Zombie ended, Dave had been bitten by a zombie at the “mad scientist’s” lab after he went all crazy and locked both Sarah and Dave in a room with zombies. Fortunately he had a cure though and Sarah managed to find it and inject Dave just in the nick of time. So now they are heading to the Midwest Wall with a vial of the cure, where they believe they will find safety and someone who can do something with the cure to end all this madness.
It’s taking t...more
I had my doubts about Eat Slay Love. For starters, even though I am a zombie enthusiast, zombies tend to work better in movies than books. However, I was pleasantly surprised by Jesse Petersen's contribution to popular zombie fiction.

Our heroes, Dave and Sarah, set out to head for the Midwest Wall near Normal, IL. The Wall is supposed to be the dividing line between the population that has been wiped-out by the zombie apocalypse and the survivors. Normal, IL also happens to be where Sarah's moth...more
There are spoilers from the previous book in this review.

Another amazing book from Jesse Petersen. I blew through the last two books in the series in about ten days ‘cause they’re just that good. Petersen writes gripping stories (you never know who’s going to get turned or killed) with terrific plots (yes, they’re about more than just killing one mindless zombie after another) and hugely likable and sympathetic leads.

After escaping from the clutches of a real-life evil scientist, Sarah and David...more

Somewhere between the novel version of a campy B horror movie and AMC’s The Walking Dead exists Jesse Peterson’s Living With The Dead series (containing three books – Married with Zombies, Flip This Zombie and Eat Slay Love – and I swear I saw another one coming out but now I can’t. Pants are sad.).

Married, bickering Seattleites Sarah and David are heading for the big “D.” Six months of counseling has done nothing to bring them together – aside from co-snarking about the suspiciously perfect cou...more

OMG! Did the ending of Flip This Zombie just bring you to tears? It should have. The Mad Scientist had me WORRIED. I really thought he may be the end of David and Sarah, but in a blaze of glory it wasn’t. *sigh of relief* Heading to the Wall with a little HOPE in their hearts, our favorite zombie killing couple’s woes are not over. These two are going to add to their merry duo a paparazzi journalist and ex-rocker. It will remain to be seen if these two can be trusted or prove themselves to be a...more

I have loved traveling with Sarah and David on their quest from Seattle to the Midwest Wall. They have had so many different trails while on their journey to something that may or may not even exist. They have come across numerous different people that were not always helpful, sometimes paranoid, and most often just flat out crazy. The zombie slaying keeps the pages filled with action and fighting.

Eat Slay Love is another book in this humorous zombie apocalypse series. Sarah is starting to notic...more
Sarah and David have been through a lot together: the zombie apocalypse, bionic zombies, mad scientists, backstabbing people, killing their zombie therapist, the list goes on. David was actually bitten by a zombie, but they administered a cure in the nick of time and he seepyms fine. They still have a vial of the cure and hope to take it over the fabled Wall in the east. Things are going along as normal as can be in the zombie apocalypse until David starts behaving strangely. He suddenly has sup...more

You may also read my review here:

In Eat Slay Love we rejoin my favorite post zombie apocalypse married couple, Sarah and David, as they attempt to get to the rumored “Wall” in the east, hoping to find safety from the society that’s let them down. I mean, zombies are the ultimate letdown, right? Of course, with these two, you know it’s not gonna be smooth sailing, and the seas get pretty rough during this outing. See, there was an incident in the last novel...more

And here comes the redemption, just in time before I totally despise this series! I love the connection there is now between David and Sarah. I also love that this book isn't all about Sarah anymore and her annoying heroine boost that's just simply too much at times. The plot has improved so much compared to the first books - Yes, zombies still need their daily doze of braaains, there are still crazy survivors, and some less crazy ones. But I like the new additions - like Nicole and her bitchy c...more

A Facebook application once told Jesse Petersen that she'd only survive a day in a zombie outbreak, but she doesn't believe that. For one, she's a good shot and two, she has an aversion to bodily fluids, so she'd never go digging around in zombie goo. Until the zombie apocalypse, she lives in the Tucson with her husband and two cats and writes snarky urban fantasy about monsters and zombies. Find...more
