Juniper Rise by Anne Lucy-Shanley In a harsh world where everything of beauty has been destroyed… isn’t love worth fighting for?
Sofia Spenser, plus-size social media influencer with a popular online blog, has it all—a loving family, lots of admirers, and privilege that only money can buy. But when the Z virus snatches away everything she’s ever known in the blink of an eye, Sofia finds herself hopeless and alone. Yearning for an escape from her desolation, she prays for people. Community. A place to belong. Safety. Then charismatic nomad Ben Cassidy and his ragtag band of followers show up, an antidote to Sofia’s soul-crushing loneliness, and a buffer against the looming threat of the ever-present Zs. The group is heaven sent, although dynamics are at play that Sofia doesn’t understand. Still, there are worse things than holing up with hot-as-sin former defense attorney Ben—even during Armageddon, a girl has needs. When he proposes the unexpected, Sofia knows her heart already belongs to him, and she’s determined to give him her body too, all else be damned. Juniper Rise has the potential to change her life—it’s a chance at a real future—but will it be a future with Ben?
Author's Note: This character-driven steamy romance offers a guaranteed happily-ever-after. Set during the zombie apocalypse, it focuses more on relationships than gore, nevertheless reader discretion is advised. Although Juniper Rise is an interconnected standalone, reading Mayfly Hollow first is highly recommended. Thank you for supporting indie authors!
Robin's Review: This is a well written and easy to read story with an entertaining balance of survival, action, drama, suspense, and romance. The world building is rich and descriptive as if you are there. The plot is a continuation of the first book but more focused on Ben and Sophia. The characters are relatable and interesting with a touch of quirkiness thrown in. Once again, an enjoyable read with an apocalyptic romance. It was my pleasure to receive a free copy of this book but that does not in any way affect my opinions in this review of this entertaining story.
