Ghost (Boston Underworld #3)

Ghost (Boston Underworld, #3)

Ghost by A. Zavarelli

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Edge of my seat!

Wow, what a ride! This story had suspense, mystery, personal growth, and heartbreaking moments.
Alexei and Talia are both broken people who have been mistreated by their families, and betrayed by nearly everyone who ever got close to them. It makes for an interesting dynamic. Alexei brings Talia into his home under the belief that he will not/cannot ever love her, a belief which he shares with Talia, much to her dismay.
I really liked the backstories of why the characters are they way that they are. They are sad, no doubt, but they felt thought out.
I loved the character of Magda. She gave Talia an anchor, a safe place when things between her and Alexei weren’t going very well. She was the mother figure Talia never had. And she was the same for Alexei.
Franco was an excellent character as well. He was one of the only people that Alexei trusted, and he looked out for Alexei time and again. I also enjoyed the overlap with the previous books both in stories as well as characters.
I am really loving this series, and am so glad to have discovered it! Can’t wait for the next one!



View all my reviews

Talia. 
I have always been a bird. Caged by one prison or another when the only thing I ever wanted was to fly away. 
Sold. Beaten. Starved. Drugged. 
Nothing scares me anymore. 
Until him. 
He makes the numbness go away. 
He is hazardous to me. It has nothing to do with his mafia lifestyle, and everything to do with what he offers. 
A gilded prison. 
A retreat from everything that I once knew. The reality I have no desire to return to. 
He thinks he’s caged me, but soon… 
I’m going to fly. 

Alexei. 
I live by a code. The Vory code. 
In this mafiya world, there are traditions. 
Expectations. 
She does not care for these things. She does not care about anything. 
She thinks she has me fooled with her haunted eyes. 
What she can’t know is that I see her better than most. 
She wants to fly. 
But I’m going to clip her wings. 
And make her my wife. 

**This is a DARK mafia romance. A full-length standalone novel with HEA and no cheating.**

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
