Zombies- as if that wasn’t enough to ruin any girl’s dream of a happily ever after.

In the last two years, Reagan Willow has survived Zombies, kidnapping, being held prisoner, more Zombies, car crashes, a dangerous stalker, no showers and most importantly Zombies. Life is complicated in the Zombie Apocalypse but Reagan is surrounded by friends that have become family, a settlement she can trust and a man that would do anything to keep her alive.

Last spring, Kane Allen tried to take Reagan away from all those people she’s come to love so fiercely. She escaped, though, and in the aftermath of that traumatic experience, she’s learning to live with the guilt and consequences of her actions.

Life has moved on since Kane and his father Matthias attacked the compound, but that doesn’t mean it’s been any safer.

On a routine supply-run, Reagan finds out exactly how unsafe she is

Reagan may have survived Kane’s captivity, but can she escape a Zombie ambush or retaliation from The Colony? Matthias promised war, and he’s keeping his word.

The Zombie Apocalypse has never been so dangerous.

Meet the Author

I was born and raised in Nebraska, but spent my college years traveling the world. I fell in love with Eastern Europe, Paris, Indian Food and the beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka. But I came back home to marry my high school sweetheart and now I spend my days raising our growing family. In those few spare moments I have, I am either reading or writing Young Adult Fiction, because I am obsessed with it.

Five other things I'm obsessed with right now:
1. My Kuerig Coffee Machine. Genius.
2. 90's music. Oh man, the 90's speak right to my soul.
3. Chocolate smelling body wash. Who doesn't want to walk around smelling like a bakery?
4. Colored Chapstick. And if it's Dr. Pepper Flavored, that's kind of my nirvana.
5. Spotify. It's like the mixed-tape of this generation and I have probably three hundred hours of music on there. Can't get enough.

Season one is a must read for anyone who has not picked up this series. And this is Episode one season two. While safe in the compound , Reagan keeps having reaccuring dreams about the last run in with Kane. With what happened she feels he must be dead, but these dreams keeps him in her thoughts. Her love continues to grow with Hendrix in whom she finds security and peace. Hendrix and Reagan are asked to go out scouting and to gather supplies, but also asked to take a couple of other's from the compound who need the experience. I mean things are bad enough in the zombie world but those who may not be able to help in a confrontation, yikes! The group comes into a building with supplies , and they are about ready to enter when they realize, that its a trap. Well organized, something is coating the floor. Hendrix gives the orders for them to leave, and the new guy says we cant leave this,steps out and immediately lands on his back and cracks his head, blood , yep , and here come the zombies. This was a set up and the group is sure of it, they need to make it out of here, they need to get back to the compound. Once back Reagan finds a note on her bed, she opens it and her heart fills with dread, its from Kane. Great first episode for a new season.

The twists have already begun and I wasn't even buckled yet! Now, I have been an avid reader of the Love and Decay novella series since minute one, so you would think i would be sufficeintly prepared for the no stop action, suspense, and butterfly inducing romance, but it seems that I just will never learn. For some reason this one threw me even more than the ones before but I am anxiously (and by anxiously, i mean gnawing at the bit) for the this friday when the next one comes out -thank heavens *hallelujah* this novella series has a new episode every two weeks! If you haven't already joined in for the ride, get Love and Decay volume one and join me, you won't regret it!  [and remember, this is coming from the girl who HATES everything zombie!!!]

Episode One of season two was just right. It had the perfect amount of action, and the perfect amount of romance. On "routine" trip to pick up supplies Regan and Hendrix run into a problem that reminds them that they are not in control as they would like to be. Their latest trial gives them more determination than ever to be together, love each other and fight stronger. I can't wait for the rest of season two.

It's back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This episode is my favorite so far. And that's saying a lot because I LOVED the last episode of the first season. That episode was amazing! But so was this one. Honestly, this novella series is just so brilliant and so exciting all the time that I can never be bored or disappointed with it. It's just fabulous, really. I swear, every chapter, every line of this novella was spectacular. I couldn't get enough of it.

It was hard to believe in God when the world around me resembled hell so strongly. But then there were moments like this. There were situations I survived when I shouldn’t have. There were minutes added to my life that should not exist. There were miraculous drives home in which a vehicle this beat up should not have made it- but it did. And I did. I continued to breathe, to think, to live. I continued to survive despite this decay, despite this horrid death that crept into every part of my existence but my own life and the lives of those people I loved most. **** Oh glorious day! I am thrilled beyond belief to be back in Higginson's wonderful world of zombies. I was over the moon when asked if I wanted to read an ARC of season 2 episode 1. Um, would riots ensue if Daryl was killed on The Walking Dead? Hell to the yes! I jumped at the chance to read an ARC. I have missed these people something fierce. Especially Reagan and Hendrix. Hallelujah! It is about time these books returned! **** Because as much as Hendrix loved me. And the boy absolutely did love me… He wouldn’t hesitate to put a bullet right into my temple if I happened to get bit. And that, my dear End-of-the-World survivors, was true, everlasting love. **** Life is somewhat better since we last heard from everyone. Meaning it is stable for the time being. The threat of Matthias is still present. But life continues. No one knows for certain if Kane is dead or alive. No one has seen him when out scouting. But no news doesn't necessarily mean good news. I really wasn't expecting this book to be all that intense. I was actually thinking that Higginson would just give us all a read that slowly got us back into the groove of things in their zombie infested world. Kind of a 'here is what’s been going on update' kind of story. Yeah, so not happening. From the start to the very end the story was absolutely crazy. The story was intense (as usual). And the story was amazing (as usual). I loved every minute of it and so glad to be back with everyone again. **** I was the kind of girl that strapped on a semi-automatic, and a sawed-off and blew the head off anything that tried to come near my man. I didn’t play homemaker. I played backup. That was the only love language I could speak. **** Another must read episode to an all new season!! I am so glad it is back and give mad props to Higginson for bringing it back with a bang!!
