Dana ~ The Dirty Smut'atter
This series hooked me from the very beginning and I am so glad I was able to read them back to back and not be left waiting........

The story picks up with Blake pack and questions left surrounding how things will ever be normal with Alexis and Zach. I really have to admit that I hate Blake's ex Clara with a passion and what she does just proves why I hate her. The shit storms that results from what I consider the dumbest decision ever by Clara sends Blake and Zach into a tail-storm. The guys are

I'm ending this series on a 5 star note. These books had there hooks in me from the very beginning. I devoured them one right after the other. The author is extremely witty, funny as hell, and of course never made a mistake in error (or at least that I could tell). I am now a HUGE fan of her work. HUGE I tell you. I might add I have NEVER read an ending quite like this one, but it worked. I cannot tell you how it ended for the sake of surprise, but just know it was really good. If you enjoy a go ...more

So good, I loved it. Definitely worth five stars. It was fast paced with tons of action. I know this is the last book, but it kind of left things hanging at the end. I heard there will be a spin off series, so I am happy that there will be more zombies!!

I enjoyed this book and the series in general. I really liked how Alexis could save herself on her own and be smart about it.

I get why Live was mostly focused on getting Alexis out and the tactics and different moves that had to be made to find her but I found it a little long and I just wanted them to be reunited already. Also, I wish Clara would have suffered a little more instead of (view spoiler)... She kind of deserved it after all.

I have long awaited the arrival of Live the third and final book in the NOLA Zombie series by Gillian Zane. This series has been one incredible roller-coaster ride of emotions from the beginning and I was absolutely terrified coming into the final installment of how the amazing Mrs. Zane was going to wrap it up.

Let me go ahead and put your mind to rest you have nothing to worry about as usual Gillian Zane delivers an incredibly stunning masterpiece that will keep you on the edge of your seat fr

I enjoyed this series. I love zombies, kickass heroines and hot military men.
I am glad that I waited till all the books were out.

Mostly this trilogy would be a 4 if the 3 books were put together into 1 novel. I just finished and this 3rd installment was the least strong. She puts her kick ass protagonist in a vulnerable position and this just didn't work. (view spoiler)

Last book for Lex, Zack, and Blake..

This is the last book about Lex, Zack, and Blake and I have to say, I'm sad to see their story come to an end. Though we'll see them in the upcoming books, it's still bittersweet. Alexis went through the ringer in this book but she pulled herself together and was her usual badass self. I loved that the three of them finally got over their issues and gave a relationship between them all a real chance.

The next book will be picking up where this one left off but
This last installment in the—Nola Zombie Series, is the end of Alexis, Blake (barf), and Zach’s story. But fear not! The next 2 books have to do with the people in their group, so we will still see all 3 of our lovely couple! ^^

This book has to do with slavery, abuse, almost rape, talk about rape, and the horrendous people (men) who treat women like cattle—or worse—and nothing more. Lucky for us, Alexis does get her revenge, eventually.

This book has Alexis separated for

This review contains spoilers if you have not read the other books in the series. Again the author continues to tell us this book is about zombies however it is straight erotica. Our main character decides one man is not enough for her. I actually don't mind the storyline I just wish the author would not have tried to make this an apocalypse Tale. I think we hear about Zombies 5 minutes total in this book.

We finally get more then one POV and I couldn't be happier! I really think it helped me connect better with the characters and what was going on. A lot of action in this book which I found helped move the story further than any steamy scenes. This was the end for these main characters but I really do look forward to reading the other books on the series 4 stars #2OCCJD

Eh, not as good as 2
Still not big on her as a narrator. Story was good, but it is not phenomenal. Still not romance, but thiller yes. More human issues vs apocalyptic zombie issues, which I enjoyed because it really would be more human issues once locations were established. I will finish out the series, but the next 2 are about other characters, since these 3 are pretty much settled.

Ho boy!
I bought the ebooks and picked up the audiobooks for cheap at the same time.
The first two are 2 stars and this one.... yikes.
Save your time and money and look for something else.

The narrator does a pretty good job tho'

Please note this review may contain spoilers.

LIVE is the final book of the NOLA Zombie series and is a much larger book than the previous two. But when I say it's the final book, that might not be the case because at the end we got a snippet of JUSTICE which is called book four in the series. So perhaps what they mean when they say it's the final book is that it's the final book in Alexis's, Blake's and Zach's story. That would make sense because while those three get their HEA, the story is def

This review was originally posted at The Book Nympho

Live is the end of is the end of Alexis' story but not the end of the series. Where books 1 and 2 are told from Alexis' POV, Live is told from Alexis, Blake and Zach's POVs. The change in POVs needed to happen because of Alexis' kidnapping. There were times she was out of it and away from the group so the story needed Blake and Zach's POVs to move the plot along. Plus it is nice to get into the guys' heads to see what they are thinking and fee

When I read third and final book in this series, I almost cried!
Then I read the book. I'm still disappointed it's over.

Blake made it home to S-Island in book 2 #Fight. Alexis and Zach were together and things
were odd.
But Alexis proposed a solution; they just be together. Black, Zach, and Alexis.
Could the men do it? Could Alexis?

Before anything can happen, crazy Claire decided she was tired of Alexis getting in her way and tries to take her out. In the process both women find their way to a bike

I absolutely love how Alexis took control instead of letting it become out of control. I enjoyed the different POVs. I was pleasantly surprised by the change of events coming. This really made me love the characters more and feel great they stuck together. I'm still wondering about Clara though. I can't believe Alexis stood up for her... I'm still confused on why this was an ending when there are still more books coming. I understand it's not about that group but it still confused me be

This is not my usual fare...well, the zombie apocalypse part is, but not this type of romance. Honestly, I didn't know what I was getting into. I bought all three of these books on some Amazon sale and only read the synopsis of the first one. I wouldn't have given them a chance had I known, but I truly enjoyed them all. I think books two and three are stronger than the first, but as a whole they're equal parts entertaining, sexy, gritty and emotional. I'd recommend them together for a fun, quick ...more

I love this zombie series.

Some of you who read my reviews probably know how big of a zombie fanatic I am. I have to say this book did not disappoint. It was a continuation of Zach, Blake, and Alexis's story. This book tells how Zach and Blake don't rest until they get Lex back to the compound safe and sound. I do have to say, between the zombie and the bikers, there is violence, strong sexual scenes, and language. If you love zombie romance like I do, I recommend this book and series. I can't wa

Way too much sex to be called a zombie book

I read all three of these books , and I don't think that they should be touted as a zombie books, they really should be more under the heading of sexual fantasy. So as far as wanting to read a good zombie apocalypse book this would not be the right books and I don't think anyone under the age of 18 should read them. The reason I gave it two stars instead of no stars is because the little that they did have about the zombies was ok, but I definitely woul

Lex a post-apocalyptic cool chick

The finish up of the Blake, Zach and Alexis story. I really enjoy the world building in this series. I have come to conclusion that I am probably going to get eaten day one of a zombie apocalypse because there is no way I am as hard core as Alexis. I am so pleased that this isn't the last in this series.
