Overview

Creatures lurking at your door step, but are those what you should be afraid of, or is there a greater monster to fear? Jared Benson is a survivor, but that's all he's done is survive. He's about to meet a girl that's going to make him want more than the ability to breathe, but it comes with a price: follow your head, or your heart?

Jared Benson is your average twenty-three year old male, he has a foul mouth, he likes sex, he despises attachments, and he doesn't take shit from anyone; he just happens to be living in a post-apocalyptic world. Almost two years ago, the world as he knew it ended, and he had to learn how to adapt to his new surroundings. As the appointed leader of a ragtag group of strangers, Jared's focus is on survival.

Gathering supplies, fighting infected, and ending daily disagreements or skirmishes amongst his ranks are his new daily routine; but that's all about to change. A chance meeting with a stranger tips Jared's world off it's axis, and he's going to question what's really important. Come join Jared, his sister, best friend, and those he meets along the way, as he learns to choose if surviving is enough, or if there really is more to life.

Meet the Author

I'm twenty-three years old, currently in college, and an avid book reader. I'm an animal lover, as can be seen with my profile picture. That's my first baby, a four year old Silky Terrier named Elvis. My second baby would have to be my books. I love sports, but have to support my home teams, the Sox, Pats, Bruins and the Celtics.

I recently picked up the hobby of writing, and Surge is my first attempt at a novel. It's the beginning of a series, so there's more to come in the future. If you liked my book, please leave a review either here, or on Goodreads. Thanks.

    Wow! This was great! At first I was wrong because while reading

    Wow! This was great! At first I was wrong because while reading the first 1/4 of this book, I thought it wasn't the book for me. I thought it was silly. I was sooooo wrong! As the book progressed, the main character became a man. So, all the silly childish things left the story. the story cam together like none other. There was violence, gangs,
    romance, love, sex, revenge all wrapped perfectly together to make this a wonderful read.This is not your "usual walking zombie with arms stretched out" thing. Oh no, theses werehumans that had received a trial run of a vaccine gone wrong-turning these people into zombie like creatures. What a new and refreshing idea! The main characters were strong and lovable (most of them). There is also a lot of great humor in this. At 5AM I woke my husband up from a deep sleep with my laughter.-Hysterical! I am running for the next book. Great new author with refreshing ideas that will keep you wanting more. Definite 5 star read

       Five stars for this original novel. Originally found this on

       Five stars for this original novel. Originally found this on Smashwords, and could not put it down. There's so much to this novel, romance, action, abuse, etc, so it appeals to several of my favorite genres. The characters were well developed, and realistic. Loved the male point of view, it's a nice change from being stuck in a female's head like most of the new adult romance novels currently on the market. Jared is a breath of fresh air, there are several scenes where I found myself laughing out loud, which made those around me give me weird looks, but oh well, it was worth it. Still can't believe it was free. Now I'm left eagerly anticipating the release of the next installment of the series, hopefully SOON.

    I loved it. The characters were attention grabbing, some funny, some twisted, all interesting in their own way. Looking forward to the next one.

    Excellent story!

    This is the 1st zombie book Ive read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Although it took a family member's sickness to bring your writing to life, its a gift that you should enjoy by continuing your writing.
    My prayers are with your mother.

    Great beginning to a series......

    I really enjoyed this book. I laughed out loud at multiple parts in the story, some parts were funny as hell. There is an interesting take on zombies, or "wheezers", as they're called in this book. There are a few things that are cringe worthy in this book also. People doing demented things, and showing the worst side of human nature, reveling in the lawlessness that an apocalypse brings. There are things that bring out the best in some characters too. All in all I would definitely recommend this book to friends and other customers browsing for something new to read. I was kinda pissed when I went to buy the second book in the series but it wasn't out yet. Oh well, I'll just have to wait a little longer I guess. Kudos to the author, they did a fine job.

    Great start

    Great start to this series. My only complaint is that she is writing the same story but from olivia point of view. I would prefere to see olivia and jared as a couple and see the other guys in the group and from the compound meet their ladies. Also i found it a little unrealistic that olivia became this expert fighter in such a short amount of time not to mention the trauma she experienced i would have expected her to react to situations a little different. I would like to see her more vulnurable and her softer side as she processes everything shes been throught without having revenge motivating her. It will be interesting to see how all the characters who ive enjoyed develop.

    If I could give it ten stars, I would, because I absolutely love

    If I could give it ten stars, I would, because I absolutely loved this book. So many elements were involved in the story, and I quite easily became addicted to it. Jared, that's the main character, was awesome. His mental ramblings were funny, realistic and downright entertaining. Olivia, that's the heroine, was complex in a  good way. She's an enigma that we get to unravel the story of through Jared's eyes. The main characters all had growth from beginning to end, so they were by no means stagnant. I also loved the supporting characters (John, Lenny, and Patsy to name a few of the many) and I'm sure you'll love them too. Give it a try, I'm sure you won't regret it. I would leave recommendations for similar books, but there really aren't any that I can compare this to. It could classify under romance of many branches, including abuse, paranormal, post-apocalyptic, new adult or action, so I'll leave the decision up to you.
