Fuchsia: Fanged Trouble by Winnie Jerome

Shifters and vampires never mix, even shaken or stirred. That's the lesson Adam has learned, but now he has to fake becoming bonded to his biggest enemy, Philippe, for the good of his clan. To say the two of them don't get along is like saying a volcano is a little hot.

Philippe is gorgeous and sexy as hell, but he's also a king-sized snob, which is a turn off to down-to-Earth Adam. Soon Adam may have to change his tune, though, because zombies invade the city intending to make a tasty snack out of anything that moves, and the only person he can turn to for help is Philippe, even though he'd rather eat his own leg.

It's been a while since I read an LOL-funny, but this one had me giggling every few pages. The author takes all the tropes about vampires and werewolves, turns them upside down, inside out, and slips them a margarita, too.  It's battle, with fangs, claws, and --- social media?

The zombies took me a little by surprise, gotta read the blurb first, but it's been a while since this shopping trip, but hey, nothing like a common enemy. I thought the ending was a little anticlimactic, but the giggles along the way made it all worthwhile. (I did mention I loathe soul-mate stories, so it's just a darn good thing this story was tongue in cheek all the way.)
