Review: Die For You (Catastrophe #1) by Michele Mills

Love, in a hopeless place.

Catastrophe Series, Book 1

Two months after a virus took out civilization, Rachel Donnelly is the last living soul in California, as far as she can tell. Until she runs into a Marine sniper, battle-hardened but alive and healthy.

Adam Sanchez would love nothing more than a slamming session of I-can’t-believe-we’re-alive post-apocalyptic sex in the back of his Hummer. But Rachel’s fragility, inexperience—and much younger age—hold him back from exposing her to his raw, aggressive sexuality. If anything, Rachel needs protection. Especially from himself.

As they band together with other survivors to battle feral animals, violent ex-cons, and motorcycle clubs jockeying for power, Rachel grows stronger in mind, body, and spirit—strong enough to give the dangerously sexy Marine what they both crave.

The power of their passion rocks Adam’s world, bringing him to his knees—which, he discovers too late, is the worst possible place to be when danger springs from the shadows.

Warning: Contains a sexy Marine, a tattooed ex-con, a girl who blossoms into a sexually assured young woman, laughter despite the pain, m/f/m ménage, hope, love, and more bad language and violence than are strictly necessary.

Die For You was so freaking amazing I devoured this book in two days. The excitement starts from page one and keeps going the whole way through. The author painted a very good picture allowing me to feel like I was stepping into Rachel’s shoes. How scared and alone she must have felt. And Adam…GROWL! If I’m going to play Adam and Eve (Pun intended!), let it be with a sexy Marine.

But seriously folks, this book works on two levels for me. One – the characters. This is where the author has excelled by giving us real characters, flaws and all. Rachel, Adam and all the other survivors are very real in their actions. The world has ended and everyone goes into survivor mode but that doesn’t mean they still don’t have very real human moments. Adam wants I-can’t-believe-we’re-alive sex, Rachel hogging the hot water, Crazy Bastard, gangs looting and killing. All very human moments and without them, the story would have felt fake.

The other level is the actual possibilities. I have developed a taste for post-apocalyptic romances lately. Something about what could possibly happen in the future that rings my bell. Nevertheless, as much as I like my fantasy reading, it needs a bit of completely possible to get me going. A strain of Ebola wiping out the world – yes that I can believe.. Starting it off in a third-world country, making its way across the globe. Destroying humans in its path. Moments of the movie, Outbreak, kept popping up in my head except there was no government agency left standing to save the day. So far…

This is my first book by author Michele Mills and has really nailed it with Die For You. Real characters and believable story line filled with action keep this story rolling along fast. The only thing I hated about this book was that it had to end and I don’t have the next in the series yet. Ms. Mills is definitely an author to watch. Can’t wait to see where she takes this series!
