They’re running for their lives...After surviving the zombie apocalypse for two years, Tye LeBownever expected to be saved from a hungry gang of zombies by a geek with a bad attitude and a penchant for explosives. Tye can’t quite work out why scientist Polly Parker saved him. She doesn’t want his protection, and she certainly doesn’t want his company. But Tye has no intention of leaving the beguiling geek behind.
Polly doesn’t want to leave her home, but when the wakers begin to show signs of a burgeoning intelligence, heading south is the only option. With a car packed full of homemade explosives, and Tye’s very large axe, they are ready for the road trip of their lives. Bombs and blades aren’t the only keys to survival–they’ll need to rely on each other, in a way that neither could have imagined...

I’ll be honest and admit to thinking twice before even requesting this book, I’m not normally into zombie apocalypse novels but this one is totally the exception and I’m so glad Entangled agreed to let me read and review an ARC of it!
It has a clever, well developed and intriguing p... ...more
This was so, so, so close to 5 stars. I devoured this book, one sitting. It was not an overly short book either. May we please take a moment to collectively sigh over the sexy wonder that is Tye? Thank you. He was everything a good alpha hero should be. Strong. Sexy. Compassionate. Oh, and actual... ...more
Waking Up Alive by Emma Short is a fitting addition to the End of Days Love series. This one runs concurrent to events in the first book then moves forward more in the end. It follows Tye, whom we met in the first book, Waking Up Dead. I loved Tye, he’s a survivor and a fighter but he’s also ende... ...more

I really liked this book.
This book has everything I would want in a zombie book: romance/suspense/action/kickass characters (this applied more to Tye than Polly). I did have a some issues with Polly. I will address those in my complete... ...more
Well worth the wait. Review to come
After waiting nearly 26 months (which coincidentally is almost as long as the zombie apocalypse has been going on in this book), I finally got my hands on it... And it exceeded my expectations. Emma Shortt did a brilliant job with the sequel of Waking Up De... ...more
Marie's Tempting Reads Netgalley ARC Review:
Another hearth-pounding, scary, and oh so tempting post-apocalyptic romance by Emma Shortt! Waking Up Alive actually had more oomph to it then the last one. Of course maybe because Polly is more leery of men and needs more protection. When Tye is rescue... ...more
This book actually starts where Jackson's did, taking us back to those moments before they separated and after in Tye's perspective. Tye, who I liked way better than Luke. We meet brainy, scared Polly and watching Tye interact with her was heart melting even before the scenes of the ending of Jac... ...more
