***REVIEW*** AND COVER REVEAL!!!!!!! Alive (The Crave book 1) by Megan D Martin

Megan D Martin is here today revealing the cover for her upcoming novel Alive (The Crave book 1). How amazing is this cover?!?!


And can you see the quote on there too? Yup, thats lil' ol' me :D I was grinning ear to ear when Megan sent me the cover!
Title: Alive (Crave, #1)
Author: Megan D. Martin
Genre: New Adult Post-Apocalyptic Interracial Romance
Release Date: January 3, 2014


Blurb:
Flesh-eating zombies, dirty sex, and a shattered past…
What’s more dangerous—the man who broke her heart or those trying to eat it?

Fighting to survive, Eve finds herself alone in the world after the Crave—the only parallel of her former life. On the hunt for her sister, she runs into Gage—the first and only boy to have her heart and break it. It’s been four years and he isn’t a boy anymore, nor is he the same person he used to be. Against her better judgment, Eve agrees to stay with him when he divulges information on a safe haven near the small town they grew up in—but that doesn’t mean she has to like it…

Returning home elicits a myriad of emotions that both Eve and Gage thought they had buried. The past and present collide and they are forced to the face bitter deceits that ruined them in the before and threaten to destroy them now…

MY REVIEW

WARNING!!!! THERE COULD BE SPOILERS IN HERE SO IF YOU WANT TO READ THE BOOK (AND YOU DAMN WELL SHOULD!!!) PLEASE AVOID MY REVIEW. BUT OF COURSE COME BACK ONCE YOU HAVE READ THE BOOK :D

Alive (The Crave book 1) by Megan D Martin

I am so happy to be finally writing my review of this book :D Megan sent me a beta copy ages ago, before it was edited or sent to the publisher. I felt extremely privileged to be reading it before any one else got the chance!!

I was pulled into the book immediately. I remember feeling as though I didn't want to put it down, EVER! All of Megan's books have had me hooked from the get go, and this one was certainly no exception! I really felt like I knew the characters, and had a real need for survival for them, especially the main characters Gage and Eve. Megan's descriptions of the world around them was great, and it is exactly the way I would picture things to be if a Zombie Apocalypse came about (or when... we all know it's coming right?! ;p)

I don't want to blabber on too much as to give anything away, but please please get your hands on this book when it comes out in January 2014!!!

After reading the book, Megan sent me these questions to answer about what I thought of it. 

Did you like Gage and Eve were they ever annoying or boring?
I liked both Eve and Gage. To be honest I found Eve annoying at parts, you know giving it to Gage but then shouting at him, wanting nothing to do with him. But when you read more of the book and see the upbringing she had, and the things that happened during the flashbacks, you start to understand why she's feeling the way she is. Gage was a good character. I liked the way he wanted to protect Eve, and he obviously loved her very much. I mean, risking his life to go back into that house full of lurkers, just because Eve wanted her bag? That's dedication for ya!

Was there any time during the book where you were bored? If so, where?
No, I was never bored at any point. The book had me totally dragged in! I sat and read the last 44% this morning so it obviously had me hooked!

Does the post-apocalyptic world make sense to you?
Does the post-apocalyptic world make sense to anyone?! I mean if it were to happen, then thats the way it would go isn't it. Some people would try to save a town, barricade the town in, and try to rebuild. Others would want to stay in their homes, try as much as they could but would eventually be killed. I suppose it has to make sense then doesn't it?

Is there anything that you think I should change?
NOTHING!!! Don't change a thing girl!!! Honestly, that's how I feel :D

How do you feel about the flashbacks and Olive's POV?
The flashbacks I really enjoyed. There were certain flashbacks that had me angry, sad and happy. The flashback with Eve going into the cafeteria after having sex with Gage, and him saying he didn't know who she was, well that just had my heart in bits! I liked reading the bits about Olive, and I was actually really sad to read the first part from Olives POV. That's when you learn Olive hates Eve (well not hate as you know they were told that was a sin, but doesn't like or love her), but again reading their upbringing makes you see that's the normal for her. The last part of the book made me feel sad though, the part with Olive. Its like I know Eve is going to go looking for her again, and now I feel like she won't find her.

Anything else you want to add?
Bloody good job Megz! Honestly this book had me hooked from the start! Oh, do you watch The Walking Dead? Eden reminded me of Woodbury :) I'm just glad there was no Governor there!!!
