Publisher's Summary

Kyra knows she's screwed. Trapped in a school while zombies stumble past just waiting for the survivors cowering inside to come out to play, she has no hope of getting out alive. She's not the only one either, and sexy fellow survivor Riley seems hellbent on making their last few hours alive memorable ones.

But in a twist of fate neither one could have seen coming, Kyra and Riley realize that they might not be facing the end after all. Even more, they're hit with the realization that what had started as a distraction might just turn out to be the best thing to ever happen to them. Assuming they can find somewhere safe.

End of the world!

This story had my heart racing ! I definitely recommend this book. If noises scary you I don’t recommend listening it at night. I have to make sure to stop listening before bed. It had me a little afraid to go to bed. It a story of surviving the end of the world.
The narrator does a great job with the characters and voices of each character making it easy to distinguish between characters.

Love the story but...

The narrator wasn’t right for this story. I love the authors books. Characters are well developed. Narrator sounded very Valley Girl, which was not right for this story. I recommend the story for the tale.

Great Read

Fighting for a Future: A Zombie Apocalypse Love Story, Book Two was another good read by Kate L. Mary. Kyra is trapped in a school while the zombies are going past. She knows that she has no hope of getting out alive. She isn’t the only survivor there, the sexy Riley is there as well. After some time, they figure out that the end may not be near like they thought. I really enjoyed reading Kyra and Riley’s story and cant wait to read more by Kate L. Mary.

Strength and motivation!

Kate does it again! This time with a series of shorter novellas about the zombie apocalypse with a bit of steamy romance included. As always, a strong female lead. Kyra is tough and outspoken, yet honest and self-confident; you just have to look beyond the vulgarity. Riley is compassionate, a charmer with the same self-confidence. The two hit it off and give each other the strength and motivation to survive. A great story! I’m looking forward to the rest of the series.

Zombies

This book was so good. It had my heart rate up and on the edge of my seat as they maneuvered through their new lives with Zombies and daily survival on the forefront. A romance developing all the while. The narrator did a good job and I really liked the MC's.

Quick steamy zombie adventure!

Narrator did a nice job; she fit the lead character well. Decent quality recording. Overall, a good listen.

This is a quick story about some survivors at pretty much the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. It’s a little snap shot into these people’s lives while they are dealing with the danger from the zombies and what they need to do to survive. This one starts out being set in a high school, which was a fun setting. The group could’ve done a lot better job of finding weapons and supplies though. 21 year old Kyra is the lead for this story; she is tough to like most times, but she’s not a damsel. She’s rude, vulgar, likes one night stands and getting drunk, and thinks because she’s honest it’s okay to be a brat. It’s good to be honest and confident, but you don’t have to do that in a jerky way. I still had some moments of liking her though; she’s not all around horrible. She’s just young and needs more life experience. Riley is her romantic connection; he’s the type of guy that can charm anyone. He’s mostly a nice guy, and seems to appreciate Kyra’s attitude. They have some steamy times that start out as scratching an itch, but becomes more as they help each other survive. I enjoyed their romance and felt they worked well as a couple. There’s some fun zombie action going on, so that’s always great. Plus, it’s fun to see Kyra and company figuring out what they need to do to survive and how they deal with other survivors. An entertaining read.

Really good

I’ve listened to several books by Kate L. Mary. I’ve loved them all as well as found the narrators really good. On that note, while I liked this story a lot, I had an issue with the narrator. Now I’ve listened to book 4 of this series so I’m not sure if the narrator was still in the learning-as-she-goes phrase?! Book 4, she did really good. Book 2, not so much. She spoke really fast like she was rushed to get the story narrated because of time restraints or I don’t know what. My usual listen speed is 1.0; I turned it back to .75 and that just made her seem like she was talking really slowly. Obviously, I had hoped her voice would have been at a normal speed. Another issue was the fact she didn’t change her voice for the characters. They all sounded the same. My last issue is the way she speaks in general (at least with book 2). There were a lot of words that she dragged out like “heeyyyy.” I don’t know if that’s her usual way of speaking (can’t remember from book 4) but it was kind of annoying. So, again, I’m thinking she hadn’t been narrating for very long and was growing and learning as a narrator, hence she did better in book 4.

I only had one question this time around. There’s a part near the end when they’re talking about the island. Kyra says that she can’t wait to sunbathe. After going through the farmhouse, Riley brings up the fact there aren’t any swimsuits. Kyra’s response? She’ll just skinny dip then. Sunbathing and skinny dipping are two different things. I’ll just leave it at that.

I received a free audiobook copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Zombie/Love Short Story

A love story set during a zombie apocalypse. Good short story. Likeable characters with a believable plot. I liked the narrator's voice and speed, BUT, the recording sounds awful in multiple spots. Sounds like she is talking into a can. Horrible echo. Hope this gets fixed for future listeners.

Fun Listen

Zombies and danger lurk around every corner and the last thing that Kyla expects is to fall in love. With Riley in tow, they'll face the apocalypse together and just might get their happily ever after.

Sexy romance and suspenseful moments made this a fun listen. The narration was well done and enhanced my listening experience. I enjoyed this and would recommend it.

Steamy Romance during the Zombie Apocalypse!

I received this book via a promo code and this is my voluntary review.

Kyra knows shes screwed. Trapped in a school, surrounded by a bunch of flesh eating zombies, the end is nigh. Or so Riley thinks so he convinces Kyra to spend what could be her last few hours fooling around in one of the empty classrooms with him. Kyra is a bit of a rebel, which I loved. The atmosphere is fantastic with the narration, you feel like you're sneaking around a haunted house trying not to attract unwanted attention from some axe murderer.

Riley was more of a rich playboy and they had a great balance. She's a horror writer, so suddenly all that creative thinking power is a great advantage to help keep her and the other survivors alive... like the knocking idea. Not everyone makes it, but by the end what started out as a simple distraction from the end, gives our post-apocalyptic couple a desire to fight for the future, however uncertain it might be.

Romance in the Zombie Apocalypse

An excellent romance novella amid the zombie apocalypse. Kate L. Mary is a brilliant storyteller that captures us with her incredible imagination. The storyline and the characters are fantastic, they held my attention the entire time. Excellent narration by Rebekah Tyler, she brought the characters to life. I enjoyed this audiobook and wished it was longer. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.
