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 Rac

Tink Magoo is bad at reviews

Sigh. That blurb got me all excited. A post apocalyptic setting with a hard, grumpy ex-marine. FUCK YES!

The blurb is the best part of this book. The heroine is an immature, whiny arse little bitch. Hello! Everyone is dead and she's moaning she can't have a 30 minute shower with hot water, or that she'll never use her mobile again. Never mind that she watched her family die along with the rest of the world. And the first man that comes along she's swooning all over the dead bodies. He is SO HOT.

Mediocre post-apocalyptic book where almost everyone is gone after a virus outbreak. Whiny, immature girl hooks up with alpha soldier with a dominant streak. But for some reason I liked these two all right, and both change for the better. More survivors are encountered, good and evil. Too many sex scenes tie together a miniscule plot, but I liked the touches like hitting up a university library for the 4-1-1. Not the worst I have read in this genre, and not the best. For some reason, though, I n ...more

Oooohh! I really hope that we will see more happy endings for the rest of the men in this series.

Not saying that this book ends depressingly or anything. It ends on a hopeful tone with endless of possibilities to come..

After a strain of Ryuigi Ebola devastates humanity's entire population, only a few survivors who are immune or have managed to fight off the virus, remain.

I don't mind insta love if there is somewhat of an explanation, but this was ridiculous. I think the H dropped his man card in the field the moment they met, and he never found it again. She is the "student" virgin type, whining and fantasising about H (Who looks like Benjamin Bratt and Schwarzenegger) and he has nothing but sex on his mind.....can you imagine those two idiots actually surviving apocalypse

Man, I like scenarios where plucky survivors are trying to figure things out without the creature comforts they're accustomed to and with danger looming on the horizon. To say this series fits the bill would be a mild understatement. It has all the glorious post-apocalytpic shenanigans I want with a side order of pending nuclear meltdown (possibly).

That said, yes, Rachel is often immature and does things without thinking through to the consequences. But it's what I'd expect from a college-aged y

In some ways this book reminds me of a book called The End of All Things by Lissa Bryan as it runs is a similar via and both are brilliantly written books that really draw you into the world left behind with only a handful of survivors.

The book starts off with Rachel, home alone after her family have died and wondering what she should do next. Then the book goes to Adam and continues in this vein so that we get bot

WOWZA! What a fantastic post-apocalyptic romance that is stunning, passionate, sexy, defiant, and with some super HOT guys that will make you glad to be the last woman on earth! I have been looking for good post-apocalyptic romances since Kylie Scott's Flesh series and I only found less then a handful since. I can now add Michele Mills to my list with her catastrophe series. This book happens to be the first book in this series so its a pleasure to have read and now, reviewing this first book.

I really liked this post apocalyptic book! The plot was different from the same old zombie books I've read recently. Pretty much everyone is killed off by a virus, like on the show Last Man on Earth. Instead of the threat being flesh eating zombies, gangs of hostile humans are what to watch out for after society falls. Throw in a hot romance and a small group of survivors and you've got an enjoyable read. Not as much action as I usually expect from the PA genre.

Damn, there were so many things I loved about Die For You but there were also many things that made me roll my eyes until it hurt.
I honestly couldn't imagine how it was possible Rachel managed to survive alone in that post-apocalyptic situation for sixty-two days. Really, she was so immature and incapable of facing the reality, it was almost hilarious.
What I loved the most was the awkwardness and palpable tension among all characters. Whether it was written like that intentionally or not, it fel

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This was an awesome first book of a new apocalyptic series featuring an alpha male and a seemingly innocent woman. I loved how the author threw them together an made them work together to overcome different obstacles. Definitely a great book.
Kelly Goode
I really liked the first half of this book, but admit to skimming the second half. The characters were well written and it was interesting to read how they struggled against the backdrop of the virus-ridden world where few survivors exist. It's a solid start to a series if you like the "kink" involved. Won't say too much about that as don't want to give anything away, but it wasn't for me.

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.

I loved the blurb and idea for this book. Such a great concept.

I really enjoyed the originality of the story and the build up between Rachel and and..and as much as I’ve read ménage and m/f/m books in the past... I will admit I did deflate when I realised it was gonna go that way between Adam, Rachel and Trevor...I’m a stickler I don’t like when my genres cross and I hadn’t expected it in this book...BUT I was pleasantly surprised with the way it was dealt

I thought this would be much more gritty and dire but it was more just a tumultuous romance novel. Not to say it was bad, it wasn't, I just went in with certain expectations that were different than the reality.

So we have a young girl that deals with tragedy and is quite naive at the same time as being incredibly adaptable and has an inner strength that gets her through all the crazy. Points for her. Then there's the bad boy military guy who has trouble accepting the box he tries putting her in.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

I love this genre; Apocalyptic Romance is literally my favorite sub genre within Romance/Erotica. This is a book that I feel really stands out within the genre. The back story and world building is well fleshed out. I was very happy with the character development, and I have to say it is a cast of likable characters. Along with some sinister bad guys to keep things even more interesting.
Rachel is young and at the cusp of starting her adult life when the apocalypse hits. Like

This a fantastically well written apocalypse romance story. Rachel is alone after a virus has wiped out her whole family, all her friends and it seems to her like everyone else in the world. She has not seen anyone for a while and is lonely and unsure what to do. She decides to leave her home, she packs up her belongings and any supplies she can scramble and leaves in her mums car.

First of all where has this author been hiding? This is a new to me author.

I went into this book feeling very optimistic. I read some of the reviews and sometimes that's not always a good thing. Some reviews talked about how immature Rachel was and how it was Insta love. Me I'm all for insta-love. But that wasn't the case for Adam and Rachel.

Ok when this book first starts Rachel is 19 fixing to turn 20. So yeah she's going to miss her phone and a hot shower and t.v. etc. But she didn't focus o

The post-apocalyptic scenario depicted in this story is one of my nightmares.  No zombies, just the dead everywhere and very few survivors.  This is a world where woman become a commodity and have to protected and cherished at all costs.  But evil will flourish when there aren’t enough good people to keep it in check.  

The love story between Rachel and Adam was pretty hot.  I understood Adam’s reservation about getting involved with someone so young and immature.  However, there isn’t a lot of c

Rachel is an insecure, immature mess. But all of her fears and insecurities melted away in 24 hours under Adam. She's tstl complaining about how she needs 30 minute showers to wash her hair and shave her legs and running the generator all night for air conditioning without thought to their limited resources. Give me a break. Adam is a bit of a jerk, and I hated how he bargained and bartered a threesome with Travis like Rachel was a peice of property without talking to her fi

This was a good raunchy romance rather than a apocalypse read with some romance which was a bit disappointing but it was still a good read. Rachel a meek 19 yo meets sexy marine Adam after 99% of the population dies from a virus. This is more of a coming of age book for Rachel and learning what it means to be a submissive while being one of the few survivors in an apocalyptic world. There are some good end of the world twists, some crazy moments and the pace of the book is good. The characters a ...more

Didn't like the heroine. Too stupid to live. She nursed and buried her family, watch the world fall apart for weeks but still didn't get that the time is over where you can 30-minutes showers when the water is solar-heated. So selfish and inconsiderate.
It wasn't a menage but occational threesome with little to no feelings involved, just an outlet for sexual needs and fantasies. That stopped abruptly without even talking about.
