Can her love save him from a curse worse than death?
Romance author Simone Kent thinks she might just have found the most perfect guy in all of New York City - in bed and out.
But Drake Parrish is about as far from perfect as any man can get. Eight years ago, he was cursed by an evil Voodoo priestess to live part of his life as a zombie. Since then, he has lived like a recluse on New York’s Upper East Side, afraid to go out for fear he’ll suddenly turn into one of the walking dead.
The sex is the hottest either of them has ever experienced and Simone discovers just how naughty she can be with Drake, while he finds himself feeling things for Simone he hasn’t felt in a very long time. When the Voodoo priestess learns of their relationship, however, she comes after him again. She's determined he won't have a future with Simone, even if that means killing both him and the woman he loves.
Dead Sexy by Paige Tyler is a Zombie Romance – falling under Paranormal Romance. Generally, I love zombie stories and was very intrigued about this being a zombie romance. Normally I see more zombie action is Horror and although the story line premise was quite brilliant, the execution was just not.
Drake Parrish is cursed and it changes his life forever. Just so nobody gets uber creaped out here – he is only a zombie on and off. It kind of comes in waves and then goes away. So 80% of the time he looks completely normal. So there is no half-dead sexy..just sayin’.
I feel like this book had two completely different feels. The first half seemed to be very sexual, which normally I would not complain about, but it seemed like some of the scenes were forced. The chemistry was strong between the characters, but some of the sexual scenes didn’t seem to fit into the story and used repetitive words. This is becoming a real pet peeve of mine. It is just so distracting to read the same word over and over to describe any part of the body. The second half seemed more consistent in the sexual content and had lots of action. I consistently felt that there was no fluidity to the writing and story. As much as I tried to like this book, it just did not work for me.
I rate Dead Sexy 2 out of 5 Bullets
