I received a copy of Dead Sexy in exchange for my review as a part of this blog blitz.
Drake was a money grabbing playboy until he got on the wrong side of a Vodoo Priestess. Now he's a recluse, who sometimes turns into a zombie and never leaves his apartment. That is until he meets romance author, Simone, and he starts to feel emotions he's never felt before. Starting on their relationship, the attraction between them is intense, but can it last when Simone finds out Drake's secret, and what about when the Vodoo Priestess decides her revenge hasn't been enough?
Just to warn you though, there are scenes of a sexually explicit nature throughout Dead Sexy, though don't worry too much, none of them involve rotting body parts!
I really enjoyed reading the chemistry between Drake and Simone, there was something believable about it, and though it could be seen as a whirlwind romance, to me it didn't seem rushes or out of place as some whirlwind romances can seem.
If you're the kind of person that likes gore in your zombie fiction, then this book probably isn't for you, there is much more of a focus on the romance side of things than on the grime and gore, which personally I thought was a good thing, I am much more of a romance than a gore person!
Saying that, in the later parts of the book, there was quite a lot of action involving fighting zombies, and being kick ass at it I might add! But the right kind of level to avoid gore, so not to put people who don't like it off!
The only thing that I could pull Dead Sexy up on (and believe me when I say this is the teeniest, tiniest problem ever!) was that I had trouble thinking 'romance writer' and 'sexy, smart, funny Simone'. For some reason when I read romance writer I was thinking of a slightly older dowdy lady rather than a sex kitten like Simone...my head is a strange place to be sometimes!
I haven't devoured a book like I devoured Dead Sexy in a while (well ok in like a week, and that is mainly because I have been busy), but it is well worth a read, particularly if you are a fan of paranormal fiction.

Can her love save him from a curse worse than death?
Romance author Simone Kent thinks she might just have found the most perfect guy in all of New York City - in bed and out.
But Drake Parrish is about as far from perfect as any man can get. Eight years ago, he was cursed by an evil Voodoo priestess to live part of his life as a zombie. Since then, he has lived like a recluse on New York’s Upper East Side, afraid to go out for fear he’ll suddenly turn into one of the walking dead.
The sex is the hottest either of them has ever experienced and Simone discovers just how naughty she can be with Drake, while he finds himself feeling things for Simone he hasn’t felt in a very long time. When the Voodoo priestess learns of their relationship, however, she comes after him again. She's determined he won't have a future with Simone, even if that means killing both him and the woman he loves.
