Before the outbreak, Sahara was a high school teacher living alone in a small Alabama town. She saw her life as nothing more than endless days of teaching children Shakespeare and nights reading paranormal romances. She was happy with her life, as quiet and mundane as it was.

After the outbreak, Sahara becomes a warrior traveling across the country in search of sanctuary. She spends her days and nights killing zombies, searching for food, trying to maintain her sanity, and if Daniel has his say, finding love.

How will Sahara help those who are left find safety and stability in a world full of nightmares? Will she stop resisting the man she loves and open her heart, knowing that he may not live through the next second let alone the next year? Join Sahara and her people in a fight against creatures set out to devour them and the unknown threat controlling them to find out.

 
Resistant by Jennifer Lynn Reynolds

ResistantWhen the zombie virus went wild, no one knew, was it a government experiment gone horribly wrong, a terrorist’s chemical attack? Aliens? All the few remaining survivors knew were that they were Resistant and humanity is now mere food for the infected. Citizens were warned to hunker down, make a fortress of their homes and to wait for rescue, but who was left to rescue them? Take a different look at the zombie apocalypse through the eyes of the female heroine, Sahara as she lives and details her life after the world as she knew it went mad. Welcome to Jennifer Lynn Reynold’s riveting tale of death, destruction, survival and hope for a new future through love. Welcome to Resistant an apocalyptic romantic tale.

Page one, meet Sahara, whose life is less than thrilling or excitement filled, and that is exactly how she liked it, even after the zombies overtook the streets, she remained locked away in the relative safety of her home. Then they came, a military type unit, taking over her home, and settling in to wage war and find survivors from their newly commandeered command post. But first, came the humiliating examination of her body, the testing of her blood and the final okay that she held an antibody that made her resistant. Her biggest thorn in her side was the devastatingly handsome Daniel, who confused her like no one else, playing ally one minute, drill sergeant the next and ice-cold robot after that.

Times change, people change and Sahara has become a warrior who stands side by side with Daniel, who knows he will do anything to protect this incredible woman. She has his heart, he has hers, but, of course, survival comes first and the game of aggravate, retreat, push and pull begins as their battle of wills becomes the foundation for so much more. Is it true? Where there is love there is hope for a better future?

I am giving a standing ovation to one of the best zombie romances I have ever read to Jennifer Lynn Reynolds! What a combination of the gross, the dangerous and the sigh-worthy heat as this story unfolds. I loved Sahara, a self-admitted couch potato who remade herself into a true survivor, a true warrior. Daniel, totally an alpha hero with a heart, and a lot of patience! Romance lovers, take a walk on the dark side of fantasy, it is completely worth the danger. Zombie lovers, there is enough hardcore action and heroics to satisfy your need for blood and guts. Ms. Reynolds has combined two of my favorite genres and come up with a real gem! Her work is well-written, fast-paced when necessary and gently engaging when not. The romantic heat comes slowly, and oh, the many interruptions get humorous. A great read with wonderful dialogue, some snark and attitude and some well-defined characters! Highly recommended.

I received this copy from Jennifer Lynn Reynolds in exchange for my honest review.
