Not Dead Yet (Not Dead Yet #1) by Jenn BurkeThough not my usual type of read, Not Dead Yet was a very, very solid paranormal mystery romance, and I had a hard time putting it down.
Im not a mystery lover, but if well-written mysteries mixed with a ton of paranormal goodies are your thing, youre going to be in love with this one.
The romance is a second-chance romance, something that is hit-or-miss for me, but I really enjoyed it here. I have a thing for gruff MCs, so the grumpy Rojas worked for me. I understood him as a character, and I liked seeing him and Wes together.
I found the whole part-ghost/never aging thing that Wes has going on to be intriguing and super well done. After youve read a few hundred paranormal romances, the same-old tropes start to get stale, and I think that Jenn Burke made this romance feel fresh and new.
Also, though it isnt spelled out for us readers, I think Wes is a gray asexual or maybe a demisexual. He rarely experiences sexual attraction, and Rojas is one of the few people who have ever done it for him. I was pretty stoked to see some ACE rep in the story, and I think Jenn Burke did a great job with it.
Everything from the side characters to the unexpectedly delightful plot kept me interested, and though mysteries make me low-level uneasy (I hate suspense!), I would read another book in this series (I hope its a series!) in a heartbeat. Very well done.
