Nothing comes easy in a post-zombie-apocalyptic world and Andi is used to losing the people she cares about. But when Will gets infected so soon after getting him back, she can't accept the possibility that her life may have to go on without him. She clings to Dan for support through one impossible situation after another, and although there are some bright spots, the darkness just keeps rolling in.

When finally things seem to be settling down, and she thinks she might actually have a shot at a normal life, the unthinkable happens. She struggles with knowing nothing will ever be the same again and moving on to honor the memory of the one person she thought would always be there. But that's easier said than done, and Andi finds has to fight harder than ever just to hold on

~My Review~
After basically losing myself for a day in Find Me, to say I was eager to get my hands on this book would be an understatement.

This series makes me absolutely giddy in that the main character is a strong, independent young woman, but at the same time she also knows when to accept help from others. Andi has given up some of her stubbornness from the first two books and now will allow others to be there for her. That's a great lesson to learn! Of course, that's not the only life-lesson Andi learns in the span of the series.

Just when you think things are going smoothly and you can enjoy some quick wit and enlightening conversations between characters, all hell breaks loose. But, that's what makes this book exciting. It started out crazy and just seemed to roller coaster from there.

Because this is the final book of the series, I'm going to be extra careful not to ruin it with spoilers.

I will say that Andi and friends fight evil individuals, love completely, and suffer great loss. By the end of the book I was sobbing. A complete wreck. But it was completely worth it!

What a beautiful story and talented author!

~About the Author~

L.J. lives on the Jersey Shore with her husband, four kids, two cats, and an inherited dog from hell (a.k.a. the sewer gremlin). Though writing has always been her first passion, she got a degree in psychological counseling and worked in the mental health field for awhile, which she finds very helpful in dealing with her crazy family. She is a lover of all different types of music and books, switching between genres so wildly it sometimes makes people wonder if she has multiple personalities. She is most likely to be found writing romance stories of all kinds (contemporary, erotic, new adult, young adult, fantasy, paranormal, etc.) . When she's not writing, she prefers to spend her time reading, taking photos, watching Doctor Who or Supernatural, or spending time with her family.
