Synopsis

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.
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. 
The hazard. 
The jeopardy. 

Because now here I stand, three months pregnant with the barrel of a gun pressed to my head cause I never saw him coming.

Grace Review

If you know my reading preferences already, you know that has my favorite theme, the anti-hero/anti-heroine. So 1-clicking it was a no-brainer.

This story focused on Stephanie “Stevie” James, a woman with no direction and no hope. When the last part of her soul is taken away from her at the hands of a crooked cop, making a deal with the devil seems harmless. Trading a life on the streets, she is given a life of prestige through the blood on her hands.

No relationships
No friendships (known publicly)
She’s a ghost.
And a killer.
Hence the cool name, lol.

“I have a feeling you’re going to be the death of me.”

After losing the one person who changed her life, she sets mission to eliminate anyone connected to their death. All goes well until she meets a target that gives her second thoughts, for the first time. A man who makes her feel – guilt, apprehension, desire.

The role Benjamin “Baz” Sabatino plays in Stevie’s life seems to change chapter by chapter.
Target.
Lover.
A future.

However, just when things seem perfect, a couple twists are thrown in to change the direction of the story.

Baz is an interesting character. At times he is very Alpha, and at other times, he is very weak. But Stevie plays a new role for him that touches back on their first connection, becoming his savior.

YOU ARE MY quiet.

This story roles towards a conclusion, with one final twist. This is one where I wish I didn’t read the synopsis, because I felt it was coming. Hopefully you aren’t able to figure it out too early, I would have liked it to be more of a surprise.

Overall, while this book features a number of “bad guys/girls” the dark elements are not overwhelming. Instead, you have a heroine struggling to stick to her mission, and at the same time, desperate to get out of the darkness that has consumed her for years. And she finds that light in the most unlikely of places.
