Publisher's Summary

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.

    "LOVED IT!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This story was absolutely beautiful!! Two tarnished souls finding each other and providing the one thing that they have lacked for so many years!! Alexi and Talia together was an amazing twist!


    Have you listened to any of Tracy Marks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have in book 1 and 2. She is phenomenal!! One suggestion, a little more excitement in the sex scenes.

    Story
    "Best One of the Series....so far."

    This book (and series) is definitely not for the faint of heart. This story is deep, dark and emotional. It doesn't shy away from mafia issues like human trafficking, drugs, betrayal, and murder. It is very descriptive and detailed with characters that are beyond flawed but not beyond redemption. It's a must listen for those who love suspenseful love stories.

    Tracy Marks narrates these books wonderfully. Her accents and clear voice make listening a pleasure.

    Note: This book has very descriptive sex scenes, violence, and strong language. This is definitely an Adults Only listen.

    This book is worth a credit and I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review.

    "dark romance"

    I really enjoyed this book as it was a slow romance. It took me some time to get to like the protagonists but I continued listening and it was worth it. You'll love Ghost if you like slow, dark, mafia, alpha male, sexy romances!

    Story
    "SOLD..BEATEN..DRUGGED..STARVED....RESCUED!"

    We learn about Talia's disappearance in the first book CROW. Mac and Talia are best friends, the last place Talia worked was at the bar/strip club owned by the Irish Mafia. CROW managed the club and Mac came there looking for Talia. This is how CROW and Mac met. Talia had gone to Mexico with her, thought to be boyfriend, Dimitre who sold her into sex slavery.

    In the 2nd book Reaper, Talia is located in Russia. The Irish and Russian Mafia's have an alliance so Mac asked Alexei, Counselor to the Russian Mafia's Pecan, to use his connections and rescue Talia.

    In Ghost, Alexei rescues Talia and this is their story...

    The feel of this story is somber. There are flashbacks of Talia's treatment as a sex slave. There is mystery and suspense. The story moves along at a nice pace without any fluff or a lot of inner dialogue.

    I've enjoyed this series and it's definitely a keeper for my library.

    A. Zavarelli is a talented writer and Tracy Marks gave an all consuming performance.

    Worth a credit/$$: Yes, Yes, Yes...get the whole series.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Dark Emotional Story"

    What an emotional roller coaster. I still haven't gotten off the rush of the book yet. I wanted to give it 5 stars, but after all the couple went through the end seemed to just be rushed. It was total turmoil and then BAM it was done. It kinda rubbed me the wrong way.

    This is a very graphic dark story. Bad things happen and some of it just seems unbearable at times and down right depressing, but you read on to see what would happen. I was up all night reading even when I knew I had to get up for work. I could not put it down, I had to see what was going to happen.

    Talia.... sigh.... why does so much terrible things have to happen to one person. I felt so bad for her and at times I just wanted her put out of her misery wondering what she really had to live for. Alexei at times was so cruel to her I couldn't comprehend why he was so cruel. He could never really give her want she needed and that was love unconditional love. The author was so talented that when he told her he could never love her, I felt that emotion from her and I just wanted to throw up because of the disappointment and anguish expressed. I know Alexei's issues are the cause of it, but it just was down right cruel. At times you just wanted them to not be together, because they were both their own worst enemies. I hate that she always got betrayed no matter what happened. How sad that you don't trust because you always know it will end.

    Alexei.... argh..... sometimes I just wanted to reach through my iPad and kill him. He was just as messed up, but i don't think as damaged as Talia. He was more messed up mentally while Talia was both messed up mentally and physically. He irritated me that he played with her in his own way too and at times was worse then the captors that raped and beat her. He would show how much he cared and lure her in then BAM crush her within a second later. Then he would say he knew he would crush her and he was no good for her. I can't believe what he does at the end to think that with everything Talia did and said he did what he did. It was almost unforgivable and in a way I am glad she did what she did to make him hurt. He deserved it and more.

    Tracy Marks was good with the delivery of the story

    "Darkest one so far"
    What made the experience of listening to Ghost the most enjoyable?

    Tracy Marks slayed this series, I can`t tell you how much I have enjoyed the first 3 books in this series so far.
    This one was darker for sure, and parts of this book made me feel uncomfortable, when you read this book I`m sure you will understand.
    But OMG Alexi, and that's all I`m going to say. Worth the credit without question.
    Onto the next book in the series.


    Have you listened to any of Tracy Marks’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Tracy Marks`s is a master in voices and accents, she can do it all and I personally think she is one of the best with male voices.

    "Dark Romance at its best"

    This audiobook was dark but I really enjoyed it. The narration was so good. Aleskei seemed like a character that would be hard to enjoy but he was a great hero. He had a tragic past so it gave him an opening to relate to Talia's pain.

    The story telling was hard, yet it felt authentic. I empathized with the characters and was rooting for them. They were damaged but together they found a partner. I loved Aleskei's "adopted" mother though she never called herself that. She was truly the glue that mended both main characters.

    The feels in this book was amazing and I consider this one of the best books I've listened to in this genre.

    "Dark & twisted"

    I loved Crow & Reaper in the Boston Underworld series, so I knew I was going to really enjoy Ghost as well. I surely was not disappointed. Talia's story is so dark & screwed up. The author is amazing at pulling you into the story & sharing every detail with you. A must read for sure! After you've read the other two as well of course. I really need to read more from this author. The narration is on point, just as it was in the other books in the series. Tracy Mark always knocks it out of the park.  If you are an audio listener I definitely recommend this series on audio as well. (:

    "My solnyshko"
    What made the experience of listening to Ghost the most enjoyable?

    Honestly, Tracy Marks is the best !! She did such phenomenal job with the narrations, especially hearing her do Alexi in Russian.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Definitely Alexi . He really came to life


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many !! but i would have to say the scene where Talia finally opens up and nurtures him


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I LOVED every second of it. their were parts were i would laugh or just feel sentimental towards the characters. But overall the audio really did bring this book to life and made you feel like you were experiencing it in real life.
