MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 4 Stars!
Once, I was nothing.
Hungry, abandoned, wandering, and alone. An adolescent street rat fighting for crumbs.
Then a chance encounter changed my entire world.
A man in an expensive suit asked me how much my life was worth.
I didn't have an answer, because I didn't know.
He asked if I thought it was worth killing for for.
Impulsively, I said yes...
He found me, then fostered me, and in the interim turned me into a killing machine. A modern day La Femme Nikita.
Now, I only have one mission. To avenge the death of the man who saved me.
There's an invisible war on the streets. Us against them. Family against family. Power against power.
They call me Ghostface Killer because they never see me coming.
I understand the weight of that danger.
Because now here I stand, three months pregnant with the barrel of a gun pressed to my head cause I never saw him coming...
REVIEWER'S NOTE: Ghostface Killer is a Romantic Suspense written by M. Never. I was gifted a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review through SFab PR & Marketing.
4 Fantastic Stars!
Gripping, thrilling and totally sexy!
I enjoyed this one a lot! This was my first read by this author, but it definitely won’t be my last. I get giddy over strong heroines and Stevie was that and more!
Ghostface Killer was a bit dark (that prologue!! wow!), sexy-steamy (those bedroom scenes! yum!) and thrilling (shoot, bang, kill! dangerous!). I know this was a stand alone, but oh how I want more Stevie and Baz!
At the young age of fourteen, Stevie James is too familiar with the corrupt side of life and the treacherous streets of New York. Starving and alone, she think’s she’s scored big after pick pocketing a suited up gentleman, only to find out he’s no gentleman at all. Both savior and villain, Bastiano Velona, aka Benny, takes Stevie under his wing and teaches her a whole new survival skill and sets her on a path to be his ultimate weapon.
Years later, Stevie’s world is altered once again and now she’s out for blood. Going on a job was supposed to be simple. Until she fell in love with her mark.
I loved Stevie! She was strong, independent and totally brought her war face when kicking some serious ass. And she was that way from the very start. The moment we meet her in the prologue, she’s thrown into a situation that would utterly destroy most people, only she came out of it hurt, but stronger and more determined to survive. Even when things started to change, when her mission started to turn in a different direction and love started to bloom, she stayed strong and true to who she was.
Baz was unexpected ... and a bit of a conundrum. Though sexy and interesting, he wasn’t nearly as alpha as I thought he would be, given who he was. When we first met him, I wasn’t too sure I was going to like him, mostly because he just came off almost too happy, if that makes sense. He wasn’t broody enough for my tastes. And he wasn’t dangerous enough given his background. Then... complete one eighty and WOW! I can’t say more than that, or it’ll be saying too much. Just know that first impressions aren’t always the final draw with the characters in this book. And I LOVED that!
It also has to be said that I loved Baz’s dirty mouth! The author gives us some incredibly hot bedroom scenes to salivate over. Whooo! *fans self*
The Wrap Up:
This story was entirely predictable, but I absolutely love it anyway! I was addicted and couldn’t put it down. The writing was great. The characters and their stories were riveting. I wanted to gobble every page and then when I was done, I wanted to go back to the first page and start it all over again. If all her other books are like this, then I can’t wait to dig into more reads by this author!
