All that’s keeping Riley from the man he’s falling in love with are the ruins of a city filled with half a million dead cannibals.
Strangers, Riley and Graham sheltered together in a basement storage unit when the zombie outbreak slammed into the world three months ago. They lived through the first blast of the plague, but they may not last much longer among survivors scrambling for dwindling resources. They agree to hike from the city and to the safety of the mountains. They didn’t count on the storm they hoped would cover their exit developing into a Nor’easter, though, and they sure didn’t think their visibility would shrink so badly that they’d hike into the leading edge of a zombie swarm, either. In the chaos of escaping the ravenous horde, they are separated, with Graham racing toward feral dog packs to the east and Riley sprinting to hostile survivors hunting them to the west.
Nobody said finding and keeping a quality guy (alive) during the apocalypse would be easy.

“Zombies and romance don’t usually go together. Yet Ms. Gregg does it again with hot m/m romance in a post-apocalyptic world.” (The Romance Reviews)
“Fast-paced and thrilling, it kept me eagerly turning pages the whole time. Gregg does a wonderful job with the world-building and the suspense here. She portrays so clearly the horrors of Riley and Graham’s situation, the city destroyed, the zombies and survivors hunting. When the men are making their way through the storm and fighting for their lives, I felt like I was right there with them. I could really picture the frozen snow smeared with the decay of the passing zombie horde, the horror of a sudden deadly hand clutching at your coat, and the frozen fingers and toes after a day of trudging through the storm. Gregg manages to create a perfect picture of the world these guys face and I felt like I was living it along with them.” (Joyfully Jay)
“The author skillfully conveys the sense of isolation, oppression, danger and fear. They are permeating the pages and it’s really hard not to feel the apprehension for our protagonists. The details, such as precautions they are taking, clothes they wear to protect themselves, the ‘luxury items’ they decide to take with them, add to the feeling of doom that hangs over them. Their encounters with ‘crawlers’ and ‘walkers’ were occasionally adrenaline inducing.” (Jessewave)
