Ali has been hiding in an attic since civilisation collapsed eight weeks ago.


When the plague hit, her neighbours turned into mindless, hungry, homicidal maniacs.


Daniel has been a loner his entire life. Then the world empties and he realises that being alone isn't all it's cracked up to be.


Finn is a former cop who is desperate for companionship, and willing to do anything it takes to protect the survivors around him.


When the three cross paths they band together; sparks fly, romance blooms in the wasteland and Ali, Daniel and Finn bend to their very human needs in the ruins of civilisation.


Lust, love and trust all come under fire in Flesh as the three battle to survive, hunted through the suburban wastelands.

This story is rated "Hot" (4 out of 5 flames) and contains M/F/M and F/M pairings.

The book follows Ali a reclusive ZA survivor and her two suitors Dan and Finn. How the three came together takes up the first half of the book and is pretty standard for ZA survivors. Ali tries to kill Dan, Finn stalks them as they leave her ‘burb, and then saves their lives. Bada bing bada boom. Sexy times. And zombie times…

I’m wavering somewhere between a 3 or a 4 star for this book. 
The zombie/scary elements of this book would probably be somewhere around the 3 star range, and that’s pretty generous, considering they weren’t really the focus of the story. The book seemed to be more about, what happens when people are in this situation, do they still risk love, and sex despite being on the menu for a large amount of the population? 
The erotic romance aspect of the book is more around the high 4 star range because this book is fucking scorching as far as normal zombie books go. I really enjoyed the dynamic between the lead characters. 

I was totally invested in the story and the characters. I wanted everything to work out for them. Not only that but Kyle Scott writes some of the most real humor in books ever. You know how sometimes authors try to make their characters funny, and it’s a little humorous and whole lot awkward because it’s just kind dorky and doesn’t work? Well Kylie’s writing isn’t like that. It’s genuinely hilarious. There are lots of moments of laugh out loud humor in here. Her characters all have their own little quirky senses of humor that I really enjoyed. 

I’m a gore whore and this book is sadly lacking a lot in the gore department. At least for my level of pleasure. This book is an older book though, I believe it was published in 2012 so two years have passed in this zombie craze that we live in. At the time of publication this was probably a huge risk. Hell it still is. I think it paid off though because I have purchased the other two books in the series, and am now addicted to zom-erotic-romance as a genre. 

Overall if you like erotic romance, and zombie books then you should give this book a try. If you  DON’T like detailed sex in your zombie books then you should probably maybe not read it. Unless you’re open minded then read it. Oh what the hell just read the f*cking book!
