Kick at the Darkness by Keira Andrews

To live through the zombie apocalypse they have to survive each other first.

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?

So I’m a little late on the Keira bandwagon, this being my first by read by her {bad Cheryl} but this one really sparked my interest at the word Zombie.  From page freaking one I was smirking at Parker, and I said so many OMG I can’t EVEN begin to count.  This dude was a RIOT!  Absolutely every word out of his mouth had me snorting at 1 am in the morning.  His “inner goddess” as I would call it, was the best I’ve ever read as an internal monologue.  The first image to pop into my head was Stiles Stilinski, and I Lurve me some Stiles, and then when the paranormal aspect popped up, it was like BAM!  

This book literally can be read as a movie with all the detail that the author cultivates into the story,  I loved everything about how the story adapted and moved the reader along with Adam and Parker.  I’m really hoping this is a HFN and we get more of Parker and Adam in the future.
