 In the Pacific Northwest, where life hurries to keep pace with technology, a re-animated bride named Josie struggles to escape her creator and to find her identity in the half-erased circuitry of her mind and body. Assassin Bane Connor just wants to get the girl to the Zombie Underground and receive his payoff—a mental reset that will erase his memories as well as his guilt. But an attack by a rival faction derails his rescue, and the wide-eyed female whose circuitry requires a husband tears at his hardened heart and ignites desire like he’s never known. Acting as Josie’s spouse-substitute is tougher than Bane expected. The newborn stein needs touch to live, and wanting her is a complication he doesn’t need. To make matters worse, she sees into the darkest recesses of his mind. The last thing a killer wants is for his lover to read his thoughts, but if Josie can love him the way he’s programmed, perhaps Bane can find a way to heal his past.

 

Review: The Bride is one of my favorite movies and this book reminded me so much of that movie. Sexy zombies…yes please! I truly enjoyed reading how Josie discovers new things, even though they aren’t really new to her she questions everything with such awe. It makes you forget the simple pleasures of life and Daisy Harris has no problem reminding you. Bane tries desperately to do the job he is paid for so he can get his memory erased and move on with his life but with innocent Josie he has a very hard time keeping on course and trying not to fall in love with her. Tons of excitement, adventure and mad scientists you will surely fall in love with this book as I did.

I also love a good laugh and Daisy Harris never disappoints me in her books. Her writing is exquisite and I have no problem turning the page to see what happens next. I can’t wait to read the other three books in this series.
