Review: Bitter Harvest by Kim Knox

Bitter Harvest
by: Kim Knox
$3.99 ebook
Carina Press
Sci-Fi / Gay / Erotica
Released: March 2012

In the quest to cure the bee dilemma, scientists unwittingly unleashed a virus that took over millions of people, turning them into mindless beings with a hive-mind mentality.  Their only purpose was to spread the virus to everyone, and they used sex to do it.  Now the last remaining band of uninfected humans must make a final stand against those who would take their humanity by carnal means.

Lieutenant Sutton is used to interrogating prisoners, but when the man chained in front of him claims he's the only human to break free of the virus, Sutton suspects a trap.  Sure that Rider is an advance scout sent by the enemy, he knows no good can come of having Rider among them.  And yet, he can't help but be drawn to the loudmouthed flirt.  Knowing his reaction is caused from the dormant virus in the man's bloodstream, he tries to focus on the imminent invasion, only to keep coming back to thoughts of how the two of them, naked and sweaty, would be like. 

When the doctors confirm Rider's story, Sutton is still skeptical.  But personal feelings will have to wait.  Now, Sutton must stand with Rider against the mindless hordes, and hope that the tentative trust he's placed in the man won't destroy them all.

This is Kim Knox's first foray into gay erotica, and all I can say is, bravo.  She did an amazing job with not only her trademark sex scenes, but also with the foreplay, for lack of a better phrase.  The sexual tension and buildup between Sutton and Rider sucked you into the story and had you crossing your fingers, hoping for a happy ending.  I'm not often one for a zombie story, but this one was pretty good.  Scary enough, the thought that scientists would create some mutant virus to destroy us all is something I can easily picture.  Personally, I prefer the idea of the enemy screwing us as opposed to eating our brains.  What a way to go, huh.
