(ARC) Book Review (376): Undead With Benefits (Eat, Brains, Love #2) - Jeff Hart

Undead with Benefits (Eat, Brains, Love #2)

Undead With Benefits is a hilariously entertaining zombie story, full of humour and action which is a delightful sequel to Eat, Brains, Love.

We catch up with Jake, Amanda and absconded former government psychic Cass, as they take a road trip to Iowa where they hope to find the cure for their 'zombieness' before both Jake and Amanda become mindless ghouls, Cass wants the cure purely for the fact that the evil Alastaire is blackmailing her, the cure in exchange for the safety of her Mother.

Once arriving in Iowa they discover that the state is infested with zombies and ghouls, led by the self-appointed Lord Of Des Moines, who has hidden the cure and decides who will or won't receive it.

There is an interesting dynamic in this book, Jake ends up separated from Amanda and Cass and meets and befriends Reggie, a zombie who is a gamer and stoner like Jake who also has another identity, one that comes as a bit of a surprise.
This also leaves the girls stuck together which makes for some entertaining scenes (cat-fight anyone?)

I really enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to see just what happens in this series next, the concept and  storyline, make for a YA series that will have you laughing out loud at the dialogue and witty one liners.

A fun and quick read, highly recommended.

I give this 4/5 stars.

Jeff Hart is originally from Rochester, NY, and now lives in Brooklyn. EAT, BRAINS, LOVE is his first novel.
