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?

Wow! What an awesome read. I love me some wolf stories and I am a huge zombie/horror fan, so when I saw this story I jumped all over it! I was not disappointed. The zombies the author created were fantastic and I really enjoyed the fresh new idea she had with them. The way she portrayed the Werewolf was pretty creative as well. The writing was solid and the romance and love scenes were hot and very well done. I stayed on the edge of my seat for most of the story and I didn’t want to put it down. I loved Parker and Adam. I was totally caught up from the very first page. I did see some editing errors, but as this was the ARC I assume those should be taken care of. Kick at the Darkness is definitely a story I would recommend for anyone who likes the paranormal. I will go ahead and give this a 6 pieces of eye candy because I totally think it deserves that little extra. Fantastic story…
years yet never really finding the right inspiration, Keira discovered her
voice in gay romance, which has become a passion. She writes contemporary,
historical, paranormal, and fantasy fiction, and—although she loves delicious angst along the
way—Keira firmly believes in happy endings. For as Oscar Wilde once said, “The
good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means.”
