Waking Up Alive by Emma Shortt
They’re running for their lives…
After surviving the zombie apocalypse for two years, Tye LeBow never expected to be saved from a hungry gang of zombies by a geek with a bad attitude and a penchant for explosives. Tye can’t quite work out why scientist Polly Parker saved him. She doesn’t want his protection, and she certainly doesn’t want his company. But Tye has no intention of leaving the beguiling geek behind.
Polly doesn’t want to leave her home, but when the wakers begin to show signs of a burgeoning intelligence, heading south is the only option. With a car packed full of homemade explosives, and Tye’s very large axe, they are ready for the road trip of their lives.
Bombs and blades aren’t the only keys to survival–they’ll need to rely on each other, in a way that neither could have imagined…

I really enjoyed this book. I really liked the world Emma created. This was a different “Zombie book” compared to some of the other books I’ve read and I think that’s what made this series so enjoyable.
I will say, I wasn't the biggest fan of Polly’s. She got on my nerves a few times thought out the book. Some of the things she done, i didn't like. She was so different from Jackson (girl from the first book). This was necessarily a bad thing, but Polly was more a geek. She wasn’t really good outside in the “real world”.
I really did like where the author took this book. It has a lot of action, some romance, and suspense. It has everything you would want in a zombie book.
Overall, I liked it. I didn’t like Polly as much as I wished I would’ve, . I really liked Tye. He was kick ass in this book. I really hope there will be another book, because I want to see what happens after the ending of this book. Some things are left unanswered. Maybe Seb will get his own book? I can only hope!

Ironheart by Nico Rosso
Superhero Vince “The Anvil” can take on knives, bullets, and bombs, but he’s not invincible. It was a hard hit when Kara, AKA “Snapdragon,” flew off after their explosive affair. And he’s especially vulnerable when she returns, looking for his help.
Kara is new to the superhero game, and villain TechHead is too much for her and her teammates to handle. He’s determined to use their combined power to fuel his ultimate weapon. Her only chance to take him on is with Vince’s brutal skill. But bringing Vince into the fight leaves her exposed to the white hot passion that had scared her away in the first place.
When TechHead captures Kara, Vince will stop at nothing to rescue her–even if it means sacrificing his heart.
