OH BOY DOES THIS APPLY TO THIS STORY!! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Kick at the Darkness by: Keira Andrews
reviewed by: Becky
College freshman Parker Osborne is having the worst day ever. He humiliated himself trying to pick up a cute guy, he hasn’t made any friends at school, and his stupidly hot jerk of a TA gave him a crappy grade on his paper. He’s going to drop Adam Hawkins’ film class and start fresh tomorrow after he’s had a good sulk.
But Parker’s about to find out what a bad day really looks like—if he can survive the night.
A virus is unleashed, transforming infected people into zombie-like killers. After these quick and deadly creepers swarm campus, Parker only escapes thanks to Adam swooping him onto the back of his trusty motorcycle. Now they're on the run—and stuck with each other.
When they’re not bickering, they’re fighting off the infected in a bloody battle for survival. Their only hope is to head east to Parker's family, but orphaned Adam has a secret he’s not sure Parker will accept: he’s a werewolf. Can they trust each other enough to find some light in these dark days?
Holy crap and wow are the words that come to mind when I think about this book! How inventive is this story! I can promise you have never read an apocalypse story like this one, and what about that cover? Holy lots of chocolate that is hot!!!!
I love Parker, bless his little heart, as soon as I met him when he was freaking about his grade I loved him! When he goes to the teachers aide to complain about his grade, he finds a whole lot of sexy in the form of teachers aide Adam!
Though the two don't exactly get along at first, I love their chemistry, and when the infected people hit the fan, Adam saves Parker and they become a sort of team. I won't spoil the story but I will say that through all they have to deal with, Parker and Adam become a source of comfort and strength for each other, and boy is the sex off the scorch-o-meter!
Will Parker still want Adam when he finds out his secret? Come along for this wonderful ride as these two make sense of each other and the crumbling world around them!
You so have to read this one friends, it is inventive and refreshing, and you will be glued to the pages cover to cover like I was. Thank you Keira, for a breath of fresh air in the form of a kick ass story!

YOU GOTTA GRAB THIS ONE FRIENDS, NOW FOR A LITTLE EXCERPT:
Parker sighed. Ugh, he had to go deal with this bullshit grade. His throat was scratchy, and he guzzled a bottle of water on his way to the building nearby where the TA for the movie class had his office. With every step, the failure seemed to seep into him another inch, and with it mortification and a growing resentment. It wasn’t fair. He had math and statistics pre-reqs for his economics major to worry about—this dumb elective wasn’t supposed to be actual work.
I suck. I should have worked harder. What will Dad say if he finds out?
He climbed up to the office level at the top of the four-story building and scanned the nameplates beside each door. His sneakers squeaked on the floor, and it felt preternaturally quiet. At the end of the hall, Parker found the name he was looking for, written on a piece of folded paper and fitted into the nameplate slot.
Adam Hawkins: Film and Media Studies
Parker scoffed to himself. Film and Media Studies. It wasn’t like it was a real academic discipline. This Adam Hawkins was likely a pretentious douchebag who wore black turtlenecks and horn-rimmed glasses. He probably drank tea and had a minor in existential philosophy. He—
The door opened. “Oh, hello. Can I help you?”
His throat gone completely dry, Parker could only croak. “Uh…”
Adam Hawkins did not wear horn-rimmed glasses.
The jury was still out on whether he had turtlenecks in his wardrobe, but at the moment he was wearing a black leather jacket over a light blue button-up and jeans. He was a few inches taller than Parker’s own five-nine, and the leather stretched over broad shoulders. His thick black hair cruffy, just the right length to make Parker wonder what it would feel like against his skin.
He watched Parker with hazel eyes that were strangely golden. “Did you need some help?”
“I’m…” Parker tried to ignore the lust humming in his veins and get it together. “C-minus.”
Cheeks hot, Parker grabbed the paper from his bag and held it up, refocusing on his anger. “That’s what you gave me on my assignment, and it’s not fair.” God, he was whining, and he should leave. Cut his losses. Man up.
HAHA, THIS BOOK IS SO GREAT! THANKS FOR JOINING ME FOR MY REVIEW OF KICK AT THE DARKNESS!
