Early Review: Eat Slay Love (Living with the Dead #3) by Jesse Petersen

Eat Slay Love (Living With the Dead, #3)


Sarah and David have survived the zombie apocalypse. They stood side by side and fought the undead, mad scientists, and even bionic monsters until the unthinkable happened. A zombie bite. But not even that could stop them. Now, with a possible cure in hand, they're headed east, looking for a safe zone behind the rumored "Wall." They're feeling pretty optimistic.
That is until Dave stops sleeping and starts lifting huge objects.
Eat. Slay. Love.
Because they haven't got a prayer. (Goodreads)

I don’t usually read novels that include zombies, but I LOVED this book! I loved the idea of a normal married couple surviving in a zombie apocalypse.  This is actually the third in the Living with the Dead series.  In the first novel, Married with Zombies, Sarah and Dave are on their way to couples therapy when the zombie outbreak takes place in Seattle, WA. They don’t notice until they walk in on their therapist eating the couple that has the appointment before them and have to kill her. Thus begins the rebirth of Sarah and Dave’s marriage, nothing like a zombie apocalypse to bring you together. By the second book, Flip this Zombie, they have the zombie killing down to an art, so they start a zombie extermination business. Yep, zombie extermination.
In Eat, Slay, Love; Dave and Sarah pick up an entertainment journalist who insists on filming everything that happens to them and a strung out lead singer of a British rock band who was in rehab when the apocalypse started.  Together they escape zombies (of course) and other survivors that have joined together to form crazy cults all on the way to the “Wall”.
I love the combination of Sarah-I-don’t-trust-anyone and Dave, who is totally loveable. You can tell that they had problems in the past, but really love each other and it never gets sappy.
How great is this book? I smiled the entire time I was reading great that I AM GOING TO BUY IT AND RE-READ IT AGAIN AND AGAIN!!! 
So, if you have a dry sense of humor and enjoy humorous, fast-paced zombie novels or really loved the movie Zombieland; stop whatever you are doing and go read this book.  Now.  Yes, right now. 
Happy Endings,
