Ghostface Killer by M. Never
TITLE: Ghostface Killer
AUTHOR: M. Never
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
RELEASE DATE: March 29th, 2017
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...
GHOSTFACE KILLER: I blame it all on the cover, one look and I wanted to read this, I didn’t look at the synopsis or who the author was, a request later and I had this in my grabby little hands. This is also a first time read for me by this author, but after finishing this book it definitely won't be my last read by this author.
They say ignorance is bliss, I was certainly ignorant when I started this, the author didn’t slowly entice me in the dark, no she stood behind me and pushed me into pure darkness. The beginning of this lulled me into a false sense of security, then I could feel the anticipation building until I couldn’t believe what I was reading, no warning whatsoever, no clue as to what was going to come at me full throttle.
In the ’Prologue’ is where it all begins. We’re introduced to a 14 year old Stevie a street urchin who has no qualms pickpocketing to fill her empty stomach. Until she pickpockets from the wrong man and things take a turn for the worst.
Handed over to a law abiding man she’s thrown into the back of a cop car with the threat of juvie staring her in the face for grand larceny in the third degree. The man in the driver's seat is a devil with a badge and a free pass to terrorise the city. I’m his latest victim.
Making a deal with the devil would’ve been easier when she agrees to let him have his way with her if he turns a blind eye and releases her, her only ticket to freedom, or so she thought, what happens next was not part of the deal. He raped me all night. In every which way.
He said he liked to break slutty little bitches like me. And he did just that. He broke me.
Then her fate is sealed when he takes her back to the precinct and throws her in a cell. To await her fate in the hands of the system.
Then the man that handed her over to the cop came back to her with a proposition, is she jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire? Would she have been better off doing her time at Juvie?
How much is your life worth?
To say I was hooked is an utter understatement, I’m a glutton for punishment, it’s not the darkest I’ve read but it offers that surprise factor where you just never know what this author is going to throw at you next. Nothing is glossed over, it’s all right there in front of your face in full detail. Twists and turns keeps you sitting on the edge of your seat, as you fall harder and harder in love with this book.
Slowly once under Benny’s wing where he offers a roof over her head he then trained her to be a ruthless killer, she became his ghost, sent out on jobs to kill, his secret weapon, his killing machine.
Born into nothing, ignored, neglected, harassed, raped, beaten, and then turned into a killer.
Her nickname on the streets is Ghostface Killer because they don’t know who she is, who sent her. She has the perfect element of surprise, no one suspects a female. A contract killer.
Until she meets twenty-eight year old Baz everything is put on the line..This man is the undoing of her. This is where it all starts to unravel. Get ready for one hell of a roller coaster ride!! This author pulls out all the stops!!
This book put me through all the paces, I felt like an adrenaline junkie reading chapter by chapter just to get my fix, seconds, minutes, hours spent with my nose in this book made the outside world cease to exist. This book just ticked all my boxes, i love books like this, nail biting, swoon worthy, high octane adrenaline, biting edge anticipation.
I highly highly recommend this!! One click come release day, you won't regret it!!
