This book grabbed my attention the second I heard "post-apocalyptic" world! I was super curious how a contemporary romance was going to fit into a background of that nature, but Christina C. Jones pulled it off flawlessly. Maddox and Aly build a love that is so foreign to the setting that it lights up the pages of this dark story. Aly is fierce and strong. She truly encompasses every word that describes a heroine. Maddox wants nothing more than to protect her and shield her from the horror around them and they begin to lean on each other to get through the madness of the world they are now living in. It is extremely realistic and that makes this book slightly disturbing, but the love that is formed throughout this story is invigorating and optimistic, and isn't that all we really want?

When he put the towel down, he kissed me.
So, so softly at first, like he was testing the waters- making sure I was okay. I pressed into him, seeking more. Needing more. And that was all the invitation he needed to devour me. His tongue probed the seam of my mouth, seeking entry. I eagerly gave. His hand tangled in the braids at the base of my head, gripping and holding me in place as he licked and explored, taking my breath away before he pulled back, finishing with another soft brush of his lips.
It felt like his tongue was everywhere, licking and slurping and moaning into me, as if I'd been prepared just for him. He hiked my thighs up over his shoulders, spreading me open wide as he buried his face in me, lapping and licking and closing his mouth over my clit and sucking and licking more, and...
It was everything.
It all came down to me.
The one who followed the rules, never went looking for trouble – I kept to myself. I just wanted to take care of my family. To not constantly look over my shoulder, worried about the things that went bump in the night.
I just wanted to survive.
But that wasn’t meant to be.
As luck – or fate, or something – would have it, the trouble found me.
I followed a rabbit through the wreckage of a half-ruined world to get back what was mine, and wound up at the end of it.
But there’s nothing magical about it.
