She approaches Nate with a plan: a local tech company is hosting a weekend-long survivalist competition with a huge cash prize. It could solve all of Nate’s problems, and Kate needs the money too. If the two of them team up, Nate has a true shot at winning the grand prize. But the real challenge? Making through the weekend with his heart intact…
Well . This was one fluffy and adorable read , A book with less than 300 pages with a cute romance. What more could have the readers asked. I really enjoyed the book . The best part of the book was that it was a quick read and i finished it in one sitting. Nate comes from a poor background known as a skid (scholarship kid) who attends an elite private school. He’s Korean-American and wants his family to live a comfortable life, without fearing about budgets and spending money to fix the house. So when he gets once in a life time opportunity to earn money he grabs it with Kate, his co-worker at the zombie escape room and in the process falls in love with her . Kate has recently lost her mom and her father is also very absent from her life as he was the CEO of this tech company. Their relationship is very troubled , which I could relate with.
The two of them decide to participate in a zombie survival competition to earn the grand prize. 40% of the book was centered around establishing the characters and setting and the next 60% was based on the competition.The characters had instant attraction and it was so simple and free of those cliches, which made it refreshing . The side characters included Nate’s 5 year old sister ,Lucy who was adorable and cute and add a fresh twist .
Wow, is there anything more beautiful than this? Sometimes we wish to enjoy the book and it not be much realistic , which works out fine . THE PERFECT ESCAPE made me laugh out loud countless times. It was a cool , funny , with adorable MCs . The only thing I wanted more was romance and a few more kissess as their chemistry was so beautiful .
