Karla dreamt of camping in the Cascade Mountains with her sexy coworker, Sebastian. Sebastian fantasized about having Karla. Will a virus destroy their future before they even have a chance?

Karla knew she loved Sebastian and his son, Jack. So when he arranges a week-long camping trip, she gathers the courage to invite herself along. What was supposed to be a week of passion quickly turns into a week of hell, and she finds herself fighting for the lives of those she loves.

Sebastian never dared dream any woman would be interested in single father. When Karla asks to come on the camping trip, the attraction between them is almost more than he can handle. The fire of desire inside takes second place, though, as the world around them quickly narrows to one thing—survival.

Will Karla and Sebastian succeed in protecting not only themselves, but his son Jack and Jack's girlfriend Rachael? Or will they end up just another meal for the strange creatures with familiar faces?

My Review
I'm a total horror and romance fan, and I think Leona does an excellent job tying the two together.
After Karla invites herself to go on a camping trip with Sebastian, his teenage son, and son's girlfriend, she goes prepared to hunt, ride horses, and sleep outdoors. She didn't know she'd have to use her weapons to survive.
I loved Karla and Sebastian's desperate need for each other. And those scenes were hot!
I also enjoyed the OMG he's going to die moments. Zombies that have mind control powers, drive cars, and have fun eating each other...what more do you want?
I give this 4/5 Hearts.
