Ali has been hiding in an attic since civilisation collapsed eight weeks ago.
When the plague hit, her neighbours turned into mindless, hungry, homicidal maniacs.
Daniel has been a loner his entire life. Then the world empties and he realises that being alone isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
Finn is a former cop who is desperate for companionship, and willing to do anything it takes to protect the survivors around him.
When the three cross paths they band together; sparks fly, romance blooms in the wasteland and Ali, Daniel and Finn bend to their very human needs in the ruins of civilisation.
Lust, love and trust all come under fire in Flesh as the three band together to survive, hunted through the suburban wastelands.

Six months since the zombie plague struck, former librarian Roslyn Stewart has been holed up in a school with eight other survivors. But now the shelves in the school canteen are bare. The stranger at the gate has supplies that will ensure the group’s ongoing survival, but at a cost. He wants a woman.
Nick is a man with a plan. He’ll treat Roslyn like a Queen, devoting the rest of his life to protecting and providing for her. In exchange, of course, for sexual favours. It’s the deal of the century given the state of the world. But Roslyn doesn’t see it that way. The first chance she gets she attacks the ex-army man and attempts to escape, forcing Nick to contain her. And so begins his awkward courtship of the woman, with her chained to the bed for security reasons.
Chained like a dog and forced to spend her every waking moment with a creep, albeit a good looking one, Ros is determined to escape. When circumstances force them to band together against a common enemy their very survival depends on their ability to learn to trust each other. An uneasy partnership develops, but can a relationship with such a difficult beginning ever have a future?

I must start by saying that these two books are by far the best zombie books I have read and the fact that they have an erotic element to them just makes them that much better. They are hotter than the outback in December.
Kylie Scott has created a unique dystopian world where a zombie plague has been unleashed and there only pockets of survivors, These stories take place in Australia and follow some of the survivors as they battle not only the zombies but also the distrust of others that comes from the isolation and the looting and lawlessness that occurs soon after the plague starts to sweep the world.
Not only do we get a suspenseful roller coaster of a story being chased by looters and rapists, we also get the amazing m/f/m menage that develops between Ali, Finn and Daniel. These are people who before the Zombie Apocalypse didn't know each other and had never considered being involved in a menage relationship. Now with women scarce and Ali falling for both Daniel and Finn its the most logical thing to do. That doesn't mean that jealousy just goes away or that they don't have to work for it.
Skin: second book is best read after the first for continuity.
When food and essentials get scarce at the school Roslyn is holed up in with 8 others they must decide who will be kicked out and given to the stranger that appears and wants one of the women. Seeing as how Roslyn wont put out for the slimy fellow teacher she manages to get traded for a truck full of supplies.
Nick has everything planned out, he has a place to live and supplies to live on. He just has to convince Roslyn she got the best of the deal at the school because she is feeling a lot like she was bought and sold.
Skin follows Flesh in the timeline since the plague started and follows secondary characters from Flesh.
I loved that this was as much a love story as an erotic story as it was an adventure/suspense story. The characters are amazingly well done and easy to love. The world created here is so believable that you will want to check the news for spread of the zombie virus.
Both books deserve the 5 flower rating.
