Book Review: The Last Woman by S.M. Shade

The Last Woman

by S.M. Shade




When Abby Bailey meets former model and actor, Airen Holder, in a darkened department store, romance is the last thing on her mind. A plague has decimated the population, leaving Abby to raise her son alone in a world without electricity, clean water, or medical care. Her only priority is survival.

Traumatized by the horror of the past months, Abby and Airen become a source of comfort for one another. Damaged by her past and convinced Airen is out of her league, Abby is determined to keep their relationship platonic. However, Airen is a hard man to resist, especially after he risks his life to save hers.

When a man named Joseph falls unconscious in their yard, and Abby nurses him back to health, everything changes. How does love differ in this new post-apocalyptic world? Can three unlikely survivors live long enough to find their place in it?

This is the first of the All that Remains series and can also be read as a stand alone novel. It contains violence and sexual situations and is recommended for ages 18 and older


My Rating:


Review:



Adult Apocalyptic, Sci-Fi, M/M/F Romance!! We can all jump for joy with this book! I usually never read apocalyptic books for adults as I usually only read YA books in this genre. I don't really know why - but I am a picky reader in this genre. Does dystopia's count for this genre too? I have no clue.

What can I tell you about this book?

I love the female character - she was very stubborn and hard headed. She lived for her son and was compassionate and caring. I can see why Joseph and Airen fell in love with her.

This is definitely a book you would want to read if you like the Apocalyptic genre, but if you are closed minded or against the LGBTQ community - just walk away now. Because I know you most likely will dislike this book and leave bad reviews.
