Today I am hosting a stop for the feature for Fiery Hot Reads for Icy Cold Nights, hosted by Cambria Hebert, Rainy Day Ramblings, Love of Books, Mostly Reviews and The Caffeinated Reviewer. I have picked Tara Brown’s book “Born” It’s not just your average romance mushy gushy! It’s tied in with some zombies, end of the world freak outs, and some hot guys! So today I have a bit about the book, a review for you guys and then of course there's a giveaway as well!
"It's us and them, Em. There are no regular people anymore."
Ten years ago when the world ended she ran for her life.
Five weeks ago the world she'd hidden from came knocking on the door of her secluded cabin.
Ten days ago she found salvation hiding amongst the dead.
Yesterday she went back for the living.
Today she wonders if she will live to see tomorrow.
What do you do when the world you were born to is gone?
Where do you hide when even your own body isn't safe?
Emma ran when her daddy told her to. She hid like he said she should. He was the first person she turned her back on. The first one she let die.
Ten years has gone by and she still lives by the simple rules he taught her when she was nine years old.
"Don't help anyone. Don't go where other people are unless you have to. Trust no one. Always pull the trigger."
Until one night she hears the worst sound in the world, a knock. A simple, timid knock, on the door to her cabin.
Only the voice of the brave little girl, ready to die for
her brother, persuades Emma to open the door.
As her fingers turn the lock, she has a terrible feeling she will regret her decision.
But even as regret fills her world, so do love and companionship. Things she never imagined she would ever have again.
Everything comes at a cost, you decide what you'll pay.

5 out of 5 stars!
LOVED THIS! Hands down Tara rocks! Again Tara Brown has me hooked into a series of hers! Born was a mix between Katniss-Rambo-Shamazing! I am already a fan of Tara's writing style, so when she came to me and asked to review it for her, I jumped on the chance! I loved it from page 1 to the 203! The main character Emma goes through many ups and downs starting at age 9 when the infection takes stakes in her city, but throughout the book she becomes such a strong independent female. If the world ends tomorrow I want her on my side! Not to mention she has a Timber Wolf for a pet.. where’s mine?! I really loved all the characters that came into Emma's life throughout the book. My two favorites had to be Jake who is funny cute and loving, but is a complete dork and Anna, who is a Loyal and fearless friend! I'm glad to finally pick up a book and see such a set of strong characters. We cant forget the love triangle in the story! Its funny but sad all in one, you feel for Emma through it all (If I was Emma, Jake all the way!) Warning to some you may not like the almost harsh reality of this story with the Breeder Farms and what happens there! I personally didn't find it offensive but some might. If you are a Hunger Games fan I believe you'll love this one even more!
Cant wait for book 2 *Tapping my foot waiting Tara!*
