Book Review: Dead Sexy by Paige Tyler


3.5 Stars


Can her love save him from a curse worse than death?

Romance author Simone Kent thinks she might just have found the most perfect guy in all of New York City – in bed and out.

But Drake Parrish is about as far from perfect as any man can get. Eight years ago, he was cursed by an evil Voodoo priestess to live part of his life as a zombie. Since then, he has lived like a recluse on New York’s Upper East Side, afraid to go out for fear he’ll suddenly turn into one of the walking dead.

The sex is the hottest either of them has ever experienced and Simone discovers just how naughty she can be with Drake, while he finds himself feeling things for Simone he hasn’t felt in a very long time. When the Voodoo priestess learns of their relationship, however, she comes after him again. She’s determined he won’t have a future with Simone, even if that means killing both him and the woman he loves.


Well I was presently surprised that this book really caught my attention and kept me turning pages. I was really trying to figure out how zombies and romance can coexist but after reading this novel I’m not sure I could have been the heroine in it. That was really freaky!!!!!

Drake Parrish is cursed by a Voodoo priestess to live as a part time zombie thus putting a real halt to his playboy lifestyle. Drake now finds himself as a recluse for the next  few years, that is until one chance opportunity to meet with Author Simone Kent comes along and he can’t resist the author whose books he has come to enjoy.  Taking a huge risk of exposing himself, Drake makes the decision to meet up with the author who has seemed to intrigue him.

Simone Kent is a best selling author who finds herself in a bit of a sticky situation and looking for a solution when Drake Parrish comes highly recommended. Unsure about her decision to contact him, Simone is in a desperate place and chooses to do just that as she hasn’t been able to come up with a workable solution. Only problem is, no-one has ever physically met Drake Parrish and this has Simone questioning just how much he will be able to assist her restricted contact methods.  Finding working with Drake is easier than she thought it could be, Simone is now caught in a morass of images of what he could possibly look like and thus takes a chance and asks for a meeting.

Some of the story was a little hard for me to believe as it developed, but author Paige Tyler has a very creative imagination which kept me reading. This novel  has some very interesting action scenes and a whole lot of believable HOT sex.  Though I was unsure how the story would unfold with zombies and romance, I was surprisingly entertained as it was very different from most of the paranormal novels I’ve read. Not to mention I also felt like I was reading some of the Walking Dead TV Series scripts at certain points in the novel………but thats a tv series I absolutely love :-).

If you like paranormal and zombies, I will definitely recommend this novel as it has both creatively entwined to make a novel that will certainly keep you turning the pages and cringing at the same time.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)
