In Confessions of a Punk Rocker, Jack Norris just lost his best friend, his band’s drummer, to a drunk driving accident. This renders the band’s future uncertain, and his own demons start to haunt him as well. In particular in the shape of his dead friend who has come back to haunt him, and shows no signs of going away. But when he finds a new drummer, Drew MacLellan, who promises him he’ll help get rid of Jack’s ghostly stalker, his life takes a turn around. Drew’s sister Jen, isn’t available, and she’s very different from the women Jack used to date. Yet she pushes his buttons in all the right ways, and he grows determined to win her heart.

The story is told from Jack’s POV. Jack was a great character with a strong voice, and as the story progressed and the reader learned more about him, it grew difficult not to like him and feel sympathetic toward him. I preferred Jen, actually – responsible, independent, capable of handling her own. That doesn’t mean I didn’t like Jack, but I had to warm up to him, while I liked Jen right away.

The author did a great job of making the characters feel like actual, living, breathing people, in particular Jack and Jen, but also all the secondary characters. The world-building was interesting too, and the world of the dead, the paranormal, ghosts and hauntings, was well-crafted and just seemed to work. The supernatural element added a whole new layer to the book. The writing was good too, and overall, I would recommend this book to any fans of paranormal romance, in particular involving supernatural books involving ghosts. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Oh my gosh! It’s definitely great to see how these two got to know each other and from the view of Jack. I know this is a bit late but it’s definitely a must read if you’ve already gotten into Nessie’s Living Dead World.

I can’t say how much I enjoyed this. And this being a novella, it’ll definitely get new readers into the series without any problems and will even bring readers back before another whole book release.

Jack is the hero and his story is told in first POV. We get to see how he felt with the lost and guilt of losing his friend Ethan, the drummer of their band, and see how these two manage to make it hilarious bantering with a ghost. You see, Etahn comes back, and makes things a bit tough. Not just that be he brings light into Jack’s past and even open his eyes to forgiveness and even lead him to love.

I love seeing Jack in this different light and getting to know who he was and is before really getting to know him. Seeing how he is around his bandmates was definitely great and each of them carrying their own personality in the band.

Having him meet Jen and knowing that she is somewhat off limits yet close enough to touch was great. Sure he was sometimes and ash but he grew on you and you just can’t help but love him, such as rockers usually do to fans right?

But I definitely enjoyed this. Paranormal isn’t usually my kind of genre although I do love ghost stories and mystery stuff, I really liked this. Nessie did a great job bring in the paranormal and punkiness in to the story as she did the other books, so I wasn’t disappointed.

If I read this before the first full book, Living Dead Girl, in the series, I think I would have loved it a bit differently than I am right now. Not that it’s not great but that because I came to love him in the first books, this novella made understanding him better and made my feels for him even more so.

So yes, I definitely recommend this.

I had the pleasure of reading one of Strange's stories in the Love Least Expected Anthology last year so when the review option for this one came through my inbox, I just had to sign up.

So this one features a punk rocker on the rise to fame, a dead best friend, and the girl that's off limits. Honestly, I would have read that without knowing anything about the author's previous work. The story is told in first person perspective from Jack's POV and it is written in present tense. Now this usually is problematic for me but I have to give the author credit, it was amazingly well done. Jack's voice is strong and it never seems to slip; I knew throughout the story everything was his--thoughts, perceptions, feelings, etc. And as for the tense--it was so well done that I didn't even notice. I never got that 'off' vibe that clues me in to this particular style. I actually noticed it when I went back through the text to make sure I had my details right.

When I sat down to review, I went back and looked at the other story I'd written a review for and noticed something similar about the characterization in the books. The main characters start off a little weak for my taste but once again, Strange makes it work.

At first, I hated Jack. There, I said it. He came off as whiny, self-centered, self-absorbed, self-destructive... His whole poor-pitiful-me routine made me want to kick his ass up between his ears. Now, I admit my opinions are tainted a bit because: 1) I am the oldest child so I don't relate to the baby of the family mentality and 2) By my early twenties, I was already married with children so the concept of being young and doing normal stupid-kid-stuff is kinda lost on me. I really related more to Jen because taking on too much responsibility has always been my gig.
