Review: Ghosted by J.M. Darhower

He's a troubled young actor, Hollywood's newest heartthrob, struggling with fame as the star of the latest superhero franchise. Through scandal after scandal, addiction on top of addiction, a flurry of paparazzi hunt him as he fights to conquer his demons.

She's a single mother, assistant manager at a grocery store, existing in monotony with her five-year-old daughter. Every day when she goes to work, lurid tabloids surround her, the face of a notorious bad boy haunting her from their covers.

A man and a woman, living vastly different lives, but that wasn't always the case. Once, they were just a boy and a girl who bonded over comic books and fell in love unexpectedly.

When Kennedy Garfield met Jonathan Cunningham back in high school, she knew he had all the makings of a tragic hero. With stars in his eyes, and her heart on her sleeve, the pair ran away together to follow their dreams.

But dreams, sometimes, turn into nightmares.

Now, years later, the only thing they share is a daughter—one who has no idea her father plays her favorite superhero. But Jonathan is desperate to make amends, and at the top of his list is the woman who gave up everything for him and the little girl he hasn't yet met.

I think this might be my new all-time favourite book ever. Holyfreakingsh*t! I fell so truly, madly, and deeply in love with this book! Just like the Savage Garden song lol. So fierce! So much LOVE! GAH!!!! If I had known losing my J.M. Darhower cherry would be this EPIC I would have done it a long, long time ago.

I tend to love a lot of books, but Ghosted is on a completely whole other level here, I'm talking the holy grail level of book love! THIS BOOK! I just can't even! I'm still floating high right now with all the feels and emotions, and FML, what I'd give or do just to be able to read this book all over again for the first time. I. Did. Not. Want. It. To. End! This is one of those books I could read forever and it still wouldn't be long enough. This hangover is going to be brutal, but so very worth it!

With a unique, intense and thoroughly addictive story line, J.M Darhower had me hooked and engrossed from the first chapter. This story grabbed hold of me and didn't let go but that's ok, because I couldn't put the book down even if I had wanted to. This second chance romance owned me from start to finish and gd what an amazing ride it was!

"There's no way to sugar coat it, no pretty words I can conjure up to turn it into something sweet, not when I'm so bitter. You're the caterpillar that went into the cocoon and emerged a glorious butterfly, but I'm the reminder that butterflies don't stick around long, a few weeks at most before they're gone."

The complexities of the story line and how intricately woven Ghosted is completely blew me away, just how everything came full circle had me like whoa... dude!! It was insane! I loved everything about this book, never a dull moment or lull. The pace and transition from past to present and the twist of how the past was executed was brilliant! How the book as a whole was executed was brilliant. J.M. Darhower is brilliant! Brilliant!!!! I swear this is the most ultimate and epic second chance romance book to ever exist. GAH! Sit down, strap in and enjoy the ride! Its a bumpy one! Angst for miles, inner turmoil & regret dripping off the pages, balanced beautifully with the wit and charm of the most adorable five year old to ever fictionally exist!

Young love and a rising star in Hollywood spelled disaster for Kennedy Garfield and Jonathan Cunningham. The demons of drugs and alcohol ripping and shredding apart the dreams of young love... welcome to Ghosted this is their story!

"He's just an addict, and your daughter was his first high."

You know when you sit there hugging your e-reader time and time again with a goofy grin plastered on your face, or with tears of happiness streaming down your face, or just because the mood strikes; it was a really stinkin' great read! If you only read one book this year... *hint hint hint*  *wink* #breezeo #snowflake #TopRead
