Why I read it
I was connected to Wren through mutual friends, and wanted to read her new rom-com!

What it’s about
Amy has a small flaw in her love life – her boyfriends die on her. Two, so far. With her fear of dead boyfriends, her live ones don’t last long before she dumps them.
Until the day her beloved bicycle, Marge, takes a dive into the sea at Nelly Bay. Can Lukas, her bicycle rescuer, Viking geek scientist, and man with the gymnastic finger-porn expertise be different and survive the curse?
Smitten by Amy, he sure wants to be.
Curses don’t exist. So when bad things happen, things that *might* be impossible, Lukas sees cracks opening in his rule-driven world.
With Wally the border collie by their side, key roles in a movie called Night of the Living Teddy Bears and Zombies, and a whole lot of friends with good, bad, and dirty suggestions, they’re planning to foil this curse.
Brace yourselves, the man in the dragon boxer shorts is here, and curse-foiling is on his bucket list.
I’ve heard of women being unlucky in love… but being so unlucky that their boyfriends keep dying on them? That was definitely a new one! It seems that just about every story line out there has been done before, so when I come across a fresh idea, I want to jump on it, and I am glad I did!
Poor Amy… her boyfriends keep dying or having close calls with death while dating her. Because of this, she has rules. She doesn’t break the rules… until Lukas.
The story was a fresh idea of a mix of zombies, curses, killer starfish… and Scandinavian scientists that just seemed to work, even when I was skeptical at first. The book itself has a lot of funny scenes, and I liked that the comedy was subtle, not in your face, bust a gut laughing. The pages seemed to just turn themselves, and the next thing I knew, the book was over!
Lukas, a scientist on the island for a 6 month study, falls for Amy almost at first sight. Who’d have thought science was sexy? But Lukas, the dirty talking scientist, stole my heart almost right away… even if he was wearing dragon boxers. Add in the odd combo of zombies (no, they aren’t real, they’re actors) beaches, and some steamy backseat action, and you’ll love this book!
Overall this was a very cute, fun and sweet book, and I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good, fresh idea, even if there are zombies everywhere!
