Book three in the Love-Bots series.
When a riot erupts in Built4's stein-building lab, the alpha stein Kee drags a submissive young lab assistant into his cage. Kee's been studying the human. Ben's sad eyes and slender form call to Kee—urging him to equal parts lust and possessiveness.
Prisoner to the alpha, Ben surrenders to the stein's fierce determination and gentle seductions. He's long hated his job, feeling like a monster for following his boss's orders, especially once he's seen intelligence flickering in the alpha's green eyes.
If Kee's to escape, he needs Ben's help to learn about the world outside the laboratory—a world full of people, sex and experiences Kee's only beginning to discover. And guilt-ridden over the things he's done, Ben can only forgive himself if the alpha forgives his sins first.

Dropping in the middle of a series is never fun, but enjoying the book anyway is saying something. With a hot Alpha male and a geeky scientist discovering the world together it really wasn't difficult to sit back and relax.
Kee is a stein, a zombie of a sort brought to life for the purpose of scientific experiment, but unlike the other steins there with him, he can think more clearly and as his friends disappear one by one, he sets on learning the language of the humans and saving them all from a terrible end.
Ben is an assistant to the scientist in charge of the steins and is in charge of all the dirty jobs, but the big alpha still holds a special place in his heart despite all of Ben's efforts to ignore the curious male.
From the start this story is sexually charged despite both characters being inexperienced and somewhat lost. Their attraction is almost palpable and that is something Daisy Harris really knows how to work with.
I liked Ben's sympathy and his ultimate decision to save the steins, but also his gentle side where he let Kee take charge despite being virtually ignorant when it came to the real world. I thought Kee's innocence was really well described and his wonder made me smile more than once. But even with all the praise, the story needed more development and more insight into the characters. I haven't read the rest of the series, but the little info I got in this book was lacking certain closure and the last jump to three months forward denied me the pleasure of seeing the MCs grow as a couple.
I was excited to read this book, and while not perfect it was good enough to make me glad I've read it. Hats down for a great idea and making zombies look just as sexy as usually only shifter alphas are.
