Zombie sighting:
As soon as he managed to make himself decent and tie the fresh gown around himself, Gray called for Baxter in his zombie's voice. -chapter 33

Driven. Private. Insanely talented.

Gray Blakewood is the most successful crime writer under the age of thirty—and he has a secret that could cost him his life.

He just wants to finish his latest novel before his world unravels, and the last thing he needs is a beautiful distraction.

Meredith Ryan, his new personal assistant, has seen more than her fair share of hard knocks. And, still, she’s the sweetest person he’s ever met.

She deserves a lifetime of happiness—which he can’t offer.

But he can’t seem to stay away.

My two-bits:

With a young couple and the weight of the world on each, I loved how their love story unfolds. Each have their individual burdens in life that have aged them both. So despite their young ages, they have that "older" perspective.

Their story slowly builds trust and friendship from both points of view.

Although this is not an action, adventure, thriller, it felt like it towards the last quarter of the book fraught with heart tugging moments.

Got me thinking of how a couple can provide such strength and support to each other.
