This was the first book that I was really nervous about reading and reviewing. An ARC was given to me by the author, as well as an opportunity to have her do a guest blog on my website. (No pressure!) After I agreed to it, I was scared. What if I ended up hating the book? I had never read anything by Charlotte Stein (although I do have two of her books in my TBR pile). I had never read any books about zombies. This had all the makings of situation that could go horribly, horribly wrong. Would I [...]
I really enjoyed this! I keep seeing Charlotte Stein's name everywhere lately and so I was browsing through her backlist when I noticed this was about a zombie apocalypse. SOLD.I bought and loved. Read it in one sitting. The heroine has a massive case of PTSD but it made so much sense. I wish there were more zombie apocalypse romances. I guess I need to write one, right? Right.
I have never laughed so hard during a zombie apocalypse. June's inner PTSD ramblings were just so sadly funny, and I loved the deliberate progression from weird dreams to her relationship with Blake and Jamie. But- and this is why I don't like menage- though the characters said it otherwise, and it was written otherwise, it really seemed like Jamie was the true love, not Blake. And that's fine, why can't it be fine? And this is not related only to this book, just the theme of permanent menage in [...]
Charlotte Stein writes really, really good erotic romance. I knew that from other stories I've read from her, so I wasn't shocked when this one turned out to be as hot and tasty as her other work. What I didn't expect was that Stein also writes really good zombie apocalypse. Not that I'm an expert at all things zombie, neither on the screen or in print, but I found everything zombie related in this story very believable.These people suffer from serious PTSD, and it shows in everything. Not only [...]
A fantastic book! I can't stop thinking about it! This book starts off with a bang almost as if you are missing a part of the beginning and then it comes together great. June is rescued by Jamie after two year of running away from zombies which have somehow taken over. This is not the classic living dead book, they're alive just rotting. They can get killed by bleeding out but nothing stops them when they're after you, even having their arms ripped off. Jamie sees June and her friend and tries t [...]
AWESOME ZOMBIE PORN!!!And no, you godamn perverts, she is not doing zombies! The scene is set in a post apocalyptic world, where June get's rescued by Jamie, and taken to safety to live with him and his friend Blake.Now what got me into this novel is just how absolutely awesome Jamie and Blake were. I was blown away by their caring, their understanding, their patience. The emotional turmoil was ever present, but not overwhelming. I am becoming a fan of Charlotte Stein writing.
Disclaimer: If zombies, threesomes or Jello salads make you squirm (and not in the good way), you may want to back out of this post immediately.The book I'm discussing this week is probably one of the weirdest things I've ever read, romance or otherwise. It's by Charlotte Stein, whose work I have long enjoyed, but curiously never written about here. In general, Stein's work is on the wonky end of the romance spectrum. She often writes about self-effacing women and men with messy, complicated des [...]
1.5 stars.Forgive my snarkiness to come.If I didn't have this stupid, weird compulsion to finish something once I've started it, I would have dropped this book after 50 pages--no, even at 30 pages. (And that is still very generous considering the quality of writing)The first thing that got to me--seriously got to me--was the weird voice of the narrative. Here are some examples, but imagine the entire book being like this:"He wanted to look at her ass? Yeah, that was cool. He wanted to say horny [...]
I loved this book. I mean, really LOVED this book. I'm hard pushed to think of a book I have enjoyed more in the last number of months, especially in the erotica genre, and doubly so for paranormal erotica.The book is written in a very conversational tone, which I struggled with a little at first (being a fan of very “fluffy” language) but which made the reactions and feelings of the characters very accessible. I got very immersed in June's story and the post-apocalyptic setting of the book [...]
This is my second read by Charlotte Stein (my first was Doubled) and I think after this one, I've come to the conclusion that this author's writing style is not my cuppa. I thought that I didn't care for Doubled because it was so short, but now I think it's the writing style. The plot was extremely interesting and the sex was really hot. But for me, it was hard to keep track of past vs. present, who was speaking and who wasn't, what was actually happening and what was just happening in June's mi [...]
I am a bit of a fan of post-apocalyptic romance. This one was thoughtful. The h has PTSD, and well who wouldn't after fighting off flesh eating zombies for 2 years. That said it can be a bit confusing because it is all from her POV and she is muddled and terrified. There are two H in this and both are coming to terms with who they are now that there has been a zombie apocalypse. There is a ménage but it's real and thoughtful, not just its the end of the world so lets get it on. There are insecu [...]
2.5 stars. Very good premise, story was well done, but the lack of dialogue and 'stream of consciousness' narrative were overwhelmingly annoying. An okay read if you liked Flesh and Skin, but not quite as good.
4 starsErotic horror, you say? How does that happen? Well, let me enlighten you. The world has gone Zombie apocalypse crazy. There are a few theories on how it happened, but theories mean nothing when you're trying to survive. June is our heroine and she's no weakling. Two years of surviving will do that to a gal, I suppose. After being rescued by two gorgeous, but very different men she's taken to their safe-haven. At first she's emotionally numb, but gradually comes out of her shell and gets t [...]
Zombie romance! My new favorite. This one was pretty well done. It picks up in the middle of the action as Jamie rescues June (my MIL's name so I had to get over a little ick factor, but I digress) from zombies after having to kill her best friend who got bit.So they immediately get to a safe island. Zombies can't swim just FYI. Thus most of the story takes place as Jamie and June and Blake, who Jamie rescued earlier, learn to adjust to each other. This one wasn't really action packed survival a [...]
The story line had so much potential, so I was almost heartbroken when it didn't fully deliver.One woman left to an island with two men because of a zombie-like apocolypse. This book included two of my favorite things - Zombies and an Erotic Romance.It could've been so great, but the writing needs some reworking/editing - not due to grammar. The characters lost some of their appeal due to the way the writing would come across as uncomfortable.Still giving three stars since the premise was enough [...]
Let me preface: I don't like zombie stuff, at all. I really enjoyed this and it wasn't just the sexy parts, although they rocked. The story was really good. The characters were interesting. The circumstances crazy scary (remember I don't like zombies.)
Three-way love in the zombie apocalypse. Surprisingly sweet, without shying away from the various effects of trauma.
Often with MFM stories, I find myself a little conflicted as I do like a the possessive 'mine and only mine' kind of hero. So it's rare that one of these menage books end up on my all time favourite shelf.This is because few authors can write epic love with the kind of intensity that makes you hurt - as C Stein can.This was amazing.The world building was excellent and the connection between the main characters was truly electrifying. It was a slow build to a cataclysmic explosion of love and lus [...]
There are a very few books that I give five stars. ' Reawakening'. I found it the most intriguing of all the author's books and how I discovered her in the first place. This book was beyond love, it was intimate in a whole new way exploring bittersweet and very real emotions and fears encapsulated by the pressure of being alone. So congrats.I would love to know if there would be another book in the series or even a sequel that's a follow up to how the trio are doing would be better Thanks
I like C. Steins writing, and this is very characteristic of her. She writes emotionally charged stories that make you think, what if? It's not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but it's well written so you won't lose anything by reading and you may gain an appreciation of this author.
4.5 StarsZombie apocalypse? Remote Island? Two men, one woman? Ummm, yes please!This was my first Charlotte Stein book, and it will definitely not be my last. I was infatuated from the very beginning."All June could think was--Kelsey is dead, Kelsey is dead, Kelsey is dead--while the image of the ravening hordes feasting on Kelsey's body played behind her eyes. She tried to shut it off, keep it down, keep running before they got to her, but Kelsey's blood was still wet and all over her right arm [...]
I felt like the heroine was living in a dream world. She wasn't sane at all, not just suffering from PTSD. She remembers all fantasies known to women, but she forgets the word 'kiss'. She doesn't talk for some time, then she starts talking but does not say anything about important stuff. She can't get pregnant, and not worried about STDs, but she risks her life for condoms, meanwhile they already have condoms, she just can't ask. Because asking would be rude and embarresing. In her mind she alwa [...]
This was a pretty good Zombie Apocalypse/menage story. To be honest, I was craving something like Flesh and since the next book in that series isn't out yet I tried to find something similar and happened upon this book. The monsters are actually similar to zombies but they seem a little different (view spoiler)[the "zombies can be killed by means other than a shot to the headelectrocution broken neck, bleeding to death, and even starvation since at one point in the story there's evidence that zo [...]
In the zombie apocalypse, June has been trying to survive for nearly two years. When she finds herself more or less rescued by two guys, Blake and Jamie, at first she fears their intentions, as they have her alone on a deserted island. But she soon comes to trust and even love them - both equally and quite passionately. In turn, both Blake and Jamie love June as well, but Jamie worries about how happy they'll be when there's only one woman and he's convinced she loves Blake more than him. Jamie [...]
A NIGHT OWL REVIEWS BOOK REVIEWReviewed by: Erona Diane HillCan I give "Reawakening" more than 5 stars? Please?From the very first line "All June could think was—Kelsey is dead, Kelsey is dead, Kelsey is dead—while the image of the ravening hordes feasting on Kelsey’s body played behind her eyes" to the very last line, I was hooked. My heart raced with the graphic descriptions of the zombies and every sound inside my home made me jump and force me to look over my shoulder. The details were [...]
This book was really intense. The description doesn't do justice to the tone of this novel. I was always on the edge of my seat with this one; is the trauma too much for her to recover?, are the zombies going to get them?, is she going to get with the guys?, is anyone going to kill themselves?, are the zombies going to get them!?!?!Quick Rundown: During the zombie apocalypse Chick gets rescued by two Dudes who take her away to their safe island where they are prepared to live out their existence [...]
Take one woman, June, two seriously hot, protective and perhaps slightly crazy men, add a good helping of zombies, loneliness and a smidgen of hope. What do you get? A perfect recipe for an erotic and apocalyptic world that is pretty much perfect in its balance of horror and sexiness. The title for this book is perfect, this is not just about the violence of surviving zombies or about the damn hot menage we can see well illustrated on the cover. No, this book is about surviving the after math, o [...]
Charlotte Stein's books always stand out to me, even long after the last word is read. I easily forget about other erotica books with their cliches. Charlotte Stein's characters are always full of layers. She gives her characters flaws and insecurities,and it's these details that draw me in. Her writing style is not for everyone. It has a lot of inner dialogue, but I personally don't mind it. It's a nice break from the standard erotica book formats. I keep thinking that she could write for other [...]
This was only the second book I've read by Charlotte Stein and I'm so sorry it wasn't the first!The story takes place after a zombie apocolypse. It follows the heroine, June, right when she loses her friend to a zombie attack. She's rescued by a Hawaiian shirt wearing guy named Jamie. He and a guy named Blake have a safe home away from all zombies. Without giving away any spoilers, I loved, loved, loved June and Jamie and Blake.June is one of those heroines that make you hope you respond as well [...]
I've read a few of Charlottes books so I already knew I would probably like this one and I was right. I was looking for this kind of story specifically and I was not disappointed with it. I really liked what she did with this one. My only issue was that there were a lot of punctuation and grammar errors but I'm not one to dwell on those things so don't let that keep you from reading this one. It's definitely good enough to let that slide!
