    Not Dead Yet

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley and voluntarily reviewed it. The concept of this book grabbed my attention and then once I read Chaos Station that is co-written by Jenn Burke and Kelly Jensen I was convinced I had to try some of Jenn Burke’s solo work as well and I decided to request this one. And I am glad I did as it was a great read. Not Dead Yet is told from the point of view of Wes, who is a ghost, sort of. He got resurrected when he died years ago, but he isn’t just a ghost, he is more like an immortal who can travel to the plane were ghosts reside, the otherplane. When he witnesses a murder while in the otherplane he contacts his ex lover Detective Rojas. They team up and together try to figure out who is behind the murder. This book is a great combination of genres. It has a solid suspense/ mystery plot line, strong paranormal ties everywhere and a great romance that develops throughout the book. I would label this as paranormal romantic suspense, but it really has elements of all those genres and more and the author blends it all together in an exciting tale. It took me a while to figure out how Wes his ability/ state worked. At first I thought he was just a ghost, but I would think of him more as an immortal with special ghost-like abilities. And as for his personality, let’s say it is tough to fully like Wes at first, even tough he certainly has likable parts, he also is very selfish. I think this is done on purpose as there is some great character development going on in this book. And I did think how he acted made sense for his character and also how and why he changes. The mystery was intriguing. While is wasn’t really possible to solve this one before the big reveal, it was fun to follow the characters along while they tried to solve this. And it definitely kept me guessing and wondering what was going on. There are some great twists along the way and while the final take down scene had some more cliché parts, it had some unique elements as well and I am curious how what happened will affect them in book 2. There is a interesting cast of side characters too. Hudson was the love interest and then there are Lexi and Evan were great side characters. They slowly form a group and at the end I really liked the tight knit group they formed and how they had each other’s back and worked together to solve this. I wasn’t quite sure what to think of the romance at first. Let’s say the reason they broke up is one of those things I don’t like and I don’t think Wes should’ve done/ asked that. On the other hand it also made sense how they broke things up back then and I felt like they made for a better couple now, while they both matured a bit more. It was fun to see them reconnect, I liked the second half the best, after Hudsons’s hot and cold behavior got explained. The hot and cold behavior of Hudson at first really annoyed me, but it does sort of make sense later on. And by the end I thought these two really make for a great couple and I was happy to see them have this second chance. The paranormal aspect was a solid part of the whole story. From how Wes is a paranormal creature and Lexi is a witch. Then there are other paranormals that play a role and I enjoyed learning more of the paranormal world. As Wes never learned much of it either until now you get to discover more of the paranormal alongside him. To summarize: all in all this was a great read. It had a great mystery/ suspense plot line, some great twists, a well done second chance romance, great main character and side characters, a good amount of character development and a strong paranormal element. And it’s all blended together in an exciting read. I didn’t warm up to the romance at first with Hudson’s hot and cold behavior and with what Wes asked of Hudson before they broke up last time, but it makes more sense later in the book and I think they are at a better place for a relationship now than they were back then. By the end I really liked them together. Lexi and Evan made for some great side characters and I liked how they formed this tight knit group who had each other’s back. Wes is a bit unlikable at first, but I still enjoyed reading about him and he has some great character development throughout the book. The paranormal aspect was interesting too with some more common and more unique parts mixed together. I liked learning more about the paranormal world while solving the mystery alongside the characters. All in all this was a great solid start to this series and with the way things end I am really curious about book 2.

    Can't wait for the sequel.

    Loved this. Excellent slow burn, second chance romance. Witty and fast paced with a great plot, an endearing narrator and a second (non pov) MC who ticks all my boxes.

    Everything you'd want in a para

    Great mystery/adventure romance, interesting paranormal angle, fun characters, a bit of heartache and lots of laughter. Can't wait to read book 2.

    Action packed second chnce romance with murder mys

    I would rate this 4.25 stars. An immortal, Wes Cooper is technically dead, but able to travel between this world and the otherplane. Lexi Aster is his best friend and a witch; it was her great grandmother's spell to resurrect Wes after he was killed. He's not a ghost since he has a living body, but he can make himself disappear, so that resurrection went a bit wonky. When he witnesses a murder, he is frozen and doesn't act in time. His guilt motivates him to try and help with the investigation. Except for the first time, the killer actually sees Wes while he's invisible. Now his ex from 33 years ago, Detective Hudson Rojas, gets assigned the case and Wes' life gets complicated. The author takes a huge risk giving the POV to an amoral character who is not terribly mature and so self-absorbed that he has spent no time getting to know or understand the magic that allows him his life. Over the course of the book, it becomes obvious that Wes isn't a bad guy, that he cares for his friends. Knowing the time period and how he dies explains why he is the way he is, but he is so much more as he starts to care more for others and things outside of himself. Hudson has his own growth that needs to happen for them to get their second chance. As with most of the books I have been reading lately, most of their issues come down to lack of communication, but timing in life is everything. In the end, these guys are sweet together. Wes reads as demisexual, although that word isn't used. The final love scene was hot and funny at the same time--quite an accomplishment and it helps to make the whole thing real. The lovers reunited element works well in the story. Lexi and Evan (to avoid spoilers, I'll say he's Hudson's friend) are fleshed out enough to care about what happens to them, but I did want a little more. The mystery and the murders are interesting with enough action to keep the suspense going. If witches, vampires, secret societies and ancient artifacts sound exciting, this is the book for you. I'd be happy to read more in this world.

    Most fascinating story

    Wes and Hudson A wonderful mystery paranormal fantasy story, full with emotions and beautiful personalities. Witt, grump, jests, sweetness and much more... I love second-chance romance and this one was good. Written in a captivating way. The environments were exquisite. The plot original. A widely written story with a lot going on. Wes and Hudson were excellent put down, there characters wonderful developed. Ghosts, vampires, powers, witches, twilight, palpable tension, surprising mystery... and sweet love... all together makes this an absolute fascinating story.
