Review- What Remains:Untainted by Kris Norris

whatremains

What Remains: Book One

The apocalypse has passed. The dead have risen. But what remains…

Colby, Darcy and Barrett are hardened soldiers with a new war. A deadly disease has decimated the human population, reducing it to small pockets of survivors who fight daily again the raging hordes of undead plaguing the planet. The three men are part of a recon mission, scouting locations where humans have been reported still alive amidst the dead. But after ten months of searching, they’re ready to give up.

Abby Brennigan has been surviving on her own for half a year, hiding out in an old abandoned control tower. She hasn’t seen anything remotely alive in what feels like forever, until the three men stumble upon her hideout and into her heart. She’d promised herself she wouldn’t get close again…wouldn’t put herself through the torture of watching another person she cared about slowly fade until they turn into a monster straight off the pages of a horror novel.

But the boys aren’t taking no for an answer and as they face one test after another, the big question is—how long can they all remain untainted.

Cara’s Review

What better way to while away an afternoon than reading a zombie apocalypse book?  Kris Norris’s novel, What Remains: Untainted,” shows that even at the end of the world, love and desire has a place.  Abby has been alone for six months, since the last of her group was attacked by zombies.  Barrett, Darcy, and Colby are soldiers, who run reconnaissance missions for a small compound.  Certainly, none of them were expecting to find love in the time of zombies!

While very fast paced, Norris is able to make each character unique, and well rounded.  They quickly develop feeling for each other- and when they act on them….hot, hot, hot!  The book is filled with several good menage scenes (no m/m action), and interspersed with some one on one action as well.  I’m not sure how well the world will turn out with such a limited population, but these four characters have certainly been provided a HAE.

Sex Is Better Than Love
Three months after he escaped from Big Sandy Federal Prison, Devin “Dro” Dunbar was ready to make shit happen. Externally, he presented the Dunbar strength, the demeanor that revealed he was in control and not to be fucked with. On the other hand, internally, he felt a sense of loss and pain so severe that he couldn’t verbalize it. Imagine being locked up for thirty years, your family turning their backs on you, and practically leaving you for dead. That alone would defeat most men. Most wouldn’t be able to handle it. However, Dro refused to be defeated by their betrayal. He was determined to live off the hate he had developed in his heart for both his brothers, Pops and Donavan.
Over five years ago, when Tank appeared in the visitation room of the federal prison and introduced himself as Dro’s son, a new life opened up for Dro–a life with family that would ride with you no matter what. The bond that was developed between father and son overshadowed the years that neither of them knew about the other. It was a connection that surpassed the bars and walls which separated them. Their relationship even transcended death–which extinguished his son, Tank’s life.
These thoughts were swimming through Dro’s head as he sucked on her nipples like a baby attempting to get its fill. He made the decision to put those thoughts aside and enjoy a man’s most desired pleasure, being inside of a woman.
Skin slapped together making the sound of a fast beating bongo drum; the sweet smell of sexual pleasure saturated the air just as a waterfall of sweat began pouring down their faces. They weren’t making love; they were fucking. There was no other way to describe it. Dro was giving her the business. It was hard to believe he was fifty years old and had been locked up in a federal prison for the best years of his life. Even so, prison has a way of preserving you, keeping your mind, body, and soul young and hungry. Dro wasn’t starved for sex. Back at Big Sandy Penitentiary, he put dick to a rotation of female guards, but it had been decades since he was able to make a woman moan freely and slap her ass while she rode him like a stallion. Slapping her ass is exactly what he was doing as he flipped her onto her back then drove his thickness into her core. Screams of pleasure emanating from her mouth were a welcomed sound for Dro, which urged him to continue to hit the spot that would cause her body to convulse beneath him.
Watching Tempest’s eyes roll into the back of her head assured Dro she was not only getting her feel of dick, but enjoying every minute of it. For two months, they had been fucking. It started almost by accident. Dro believed they were both grieving and missing Tank and looking to comfort each other. Born and Lavern didn’t know about the extracurricular activities; Tempest wanted to leave it that way. Dro didn’t care one way or the other. He wasn’t in love with Tempest and knew she wasn’t in love with him. They were both using each other, and getting their rocks off in the process.
After another satisfying experience, Dro grabbed the beer that he had sitting on the nightstand while Tempest made her way to the shower. Born and Lavern would be arriving shortly to map out the final plan to return to Virginia and shut shit down.
