CONFESSIONS OF A PUNK
SEPT 25, 2015
Jack Norris just lost his best
friend—who also happened to be his band’s drummer—to a drunk driving accident.
As he navigates the uncertainty of the band’s future, as well as his own
personal demons, his life spirals out of control. To make matters worse, his
dead friend is back, and it’s wreaking havoc on Jack’s sanity. When a new
acquaintance not only hooks him up with a drummer, but promises to help get rid
of his ghostly stalker, Jack’s life does a one eighty
Drew MacLellan, the new
drummer, is helping to bring the band back from the dead. He’s also got an
insanely hot older sister who is definitely not Jack’s biggest fan. Jen
MacLellan is nothing like the women Jack’s dated in the past, but the more he
gets to know her, the deeper he falls. The only problem is, she’s got a
boyfriend. Caught between his growing attraction and the desire to do the right
thing, Jack does everything he can to keep things as just friends. The longer
it goes on, the more he realizes it isn’t possible. Can Jack win the heart of
the woman he’s fallen for? And can he figure out how to help his dead friend
rest in peace…permanently?
BY NESSIE STRANGE:
end…Jen knows tattooed, blue-haired Jack Norris is
trouble the minute he opens his front door. And being a mortician in the avante
garde East Side of Providence, Jen has seen a lot. Jack has recruited Jen’s
teenage brother Drew to play drums for his less-than-respectable punk band, and
Jen has no choice but to follow their gigs to keep her little brother out of
trouble. But when Drew goes missing, she finds herself in the awkward position
of asking for Jack’s help. Shocked that he agrees, Jen decides she may have
misjudged him. Worse, she might even like him.
But when Jen is brutally attacked, she awakens
in the hospital where a Sid Vicious look-alike greets her with the news: she’s
dead, and he’s the reaper assigned to take her away. Yeah, not so much. Refusing
to leave, Jen’s spirit watches helplessly as her loved ones suffer, powerless
to ease her family’s grief or prevent the police from accusing Jack of her
murder. Desperate to help them, Jen convinces the reaper to bring her back. But
reanimating corpses isn’t as easy as it looks, and neither is finding a killer
before it’s too late…
expected…Jen MacLellan can’t get the hang of being a reaper. She’s been separated from Jack,
the man she loves, and is stuck with an annoying telepathic link to her
ill-tempered mentor, Sam. Now Death is breathing down her neck, promising to
remove that annoying link if she gives him what he wants. But when reapers
begin to disappear back on earth, leaving behind walking, talking dead people,
Jen and Sam are thrust into a dangerous mission to recapture the souls, and a
passionate physical relationship that complicates everything.
Jack Norris has no memory prior to waking up on the half-demon Nulcifer’s couch
six months earlier. As he begins to investigate his past, he discovers a string
of past lives tied together by a beautiful, mysterious brunette. Who is she?
And why does finding her seem like a life or death proposition?
When Sam falls victim to fate during a routine visit to earth, Jen’s
devastated. Desperate to get him back, she runs smack into the man she never
thought she’d see again—Jack. She tries to keep her distance, but there’s no
time to be awkward if they want to save Sam. When sinister plots are revealed,
and betrayals threaten everything, she’s forced to make some tough choices—and
learns that life is just as difficult when you’re dead.
The Living Dead World Series It’s Jen MacLellan’s first trip back to earth as
a new reaper, and Mardi Gras is in full swing. When she happens upon Chip, a
partier stuck in a perpetual 1983, Jen decides to help him
