A breakneck tale of kick-ass, wise-ass, sexy-ass lesbians and zombies.
Eat Your Heart Out opens on what promises to be another tediously annoying day at Ashbee's Furniture Outlet. Then the strip-mall calm of Nowhere, Ohio, is shattered by the sudden, simultaneous appearance of Renni Ramirez-hyper-competent star of the beloved Rising Evil B-movie franchise-and actual zombies, leaving Ashbee's hapless staff and Renni trapped behind an automatic door they can't lock. Can failed creative-writing student/apprentice store manager/eagle-eyed markswoman Devin escape the besieged furniture store to rescue her girlfriend? Will Renni's experience slaughtering motion-captured CGI monsters save the day before the army bombs the town? Once bitten, how many zombies can a person expect to take out before succumbing to infection? Who is the mysterious Deus Ex Machina, and what is he doing with that bone saw? All of these questions and more whisper behind the scream of the single most important thing Devin needs to know in order to survive: is Renni a top or a bottom?

Ok story. Could use more action and better climax for a zombie book.
Why does the narrator sound so bored? Why can't she pronounce so many simple words like minute (the adjective not the verb).
It's annoying. Why am I paying money for this???
The action doesn't slow down. Devon and Renni never stop. If they aren't being chased by zombies, Devon is having a star struck moment or flirtatious mishap. Meanwhile, Renni is the epitome of competent zompocalypse hero chick. Heidi Mattson's delivery on some of the more comedic lines made me laugh out loud. She nailed Devon's frenetic inner monologue. All in all the story is best listened to in one sitting.
This afternoon I decided to read this book because of the "author's review" I read on Amazon. It made me laugh so I gave it go. It was fun, and amusing, and funny, and I wasn't disappointed. It's a zombie story, but not really. It's not a romance disguised as horror (yay!), but it does have a romantic element. It's a couple of messed up characters in a messed up situation doing the best they can. Did I mention it's fun? Yes? Well, I thought it was and I'm glad I gave it a shot.
