Can her love save him from a curse worse than death?
Romance author Simone Kent thinks she might just have found the most perfect guy in all of New York City - in bed and out.
But Drake Parrish is about as far from perfect as any man can get. Eight years ago, he was cursed by an evil Voodoo priestess to live part of his life as a zombie. Since then, he has lived like a recluse on New York’s Upper East Side, afraid to go out for fear he’ll suddenly turn into one of the walking dead.
The sex is the hottest either of them has ever experienced and Simone discovers just how naughty she can be with Drake, while he finds himself feeling things for Simone he hasn’t felt in a very long time. When the Voodoo priestess learns of their relationship, however, she comes after him again. She's determined he won't have a future with Simone, even if that means killing both him and the woman he loves.

Since it is October, I wanted to branch out a little bit and read some paranormal romance. I have a couple vampire books under my belt, but that's about it. When I saw Dead Sexy on Netgalley, my first thought was hot damn. I love the cover! My second thought zeroed in on the zombie-ness. Uh... But I put that aside and decided to request the book. And I am SO glad I did. Holy cow, that was hot. There is no full on zombie sex (thank god), but there are a lot of sizzling hot sexy scenes. I loved the characters and the slow build of their relationship from chatting on the computer to their first date to their first time being intimate. Drake started the book as a total douche, but he learned from his mistakes and turned into a great guy. Hello! He reads romance books! Who wouldn't sign up for that? Simone is a witty woman with a strong character. She knows that she has found a great guy in Drake and she's willing to fight evil to save him. I loved these two together. Not to mention Megan, Beck, and Aniyah as supporting characters. Perfect! The plot was an interesting mixture of sexy and creepy. Good creepy, not bad creepy. Perfect book for October or just when you feel like a little zombie-lovin'.
Dead Sexy reminded me a lot of twisted zombie version of Beauty and the Beast. Loved it! I don't know if Paige Tyler has any plans on a sequel for Beck and possibly Aniyah, I'd be a happy book lovin' clam if she continues with them.
