Story Overview:
When his ghostly cousin tells him there’s an open position at the PI firm where he works, Zane Harker jumps at the chance. There aren’t many places willing to hire a zombie and being dead hasn’t stopped the bills from piling up.

His new gig has a lot of perks, not the least of which is his current job guarding the delectable Maisie Banks after she receives death threats for her PR campaign to lure supernaturals to the small town of Pinnacle Point. The feisty brunette is a handful who spends her days arranging photo shoots of half-naked couples for her next PR push.

He might be a zombie, but spending day in and day out watching beautiful people make out for the camera reminds him his libido is alive and kicking. And Maisie doesn’t seem the least disgusted by his lack of a pulse. If anything, he thinks it makes her like him even more.

He might have a job to do, but no one said he couldn’t enjoy himself while doing it.

Warning: This book contains a zombie. Not a gross one. A gorgeous one. And just because he doesn’t have a properly beating heart doesn’t mean he can’t perform admirably. Maisie certainly doesn’t have any complaints.
 

My Review:
This is a quick story...it takes place over the course of about 24 hours, but whoa is it sexy...but I guess it does tell you that in the title, doesn't it?

Zane is a zombie who's been that way for a little over nine months. For the majority of that time, he hasn't had any sexual urges and figured he'd lost that ability with his life. But then he went to work as security for Maisie Banks and everything surged back to life in the very best way. 

It may only be a single day, but I loved the way the story ramped up between the two...talk about a sexy photo shoot. I'd LOVE to see the proofs from this one...wowzer! Kelly Apple paints some very nice visuals of what Maisie is catching in the viewfinder of her camera. And then things get really sexy.

I love that although Zane was turned against his will, he's finding that this isn't so bad. Zombies don't need much recovery time and he's found a good match for that with Maisie. She's willing to do just about whatever he wants. It's like a brand new playground with unlimited playtime. 

The book is short and sexy. It's an erotic romance...and is very much erotic. I loved getting this view into Zane's head. It was a fun diversion for an hour of reading. I have to admit, though, I'm most excited about the next in the series. Kelly Apple has the blurb at the end of this book and I'm intrigued...in the very best way.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
