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.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
Ghosted has been on my TBR for a while, a fellow bookish friend recommended this to me a while ago and I finally got to it. I picked up the audio and I pretty much devoured it in a day! That’s how much I absolutely loved it.
Second chance is my jam and I couldn’t wait to see how Kennedy and Jonathan could get back to one another. It definitely wouldn’t be an easy road since they have sooooo much to work through. There’s so many heartbreaking moments as we see the rise and fall of the relationship especially with Jonathan. Yeah, my heart loves all that especially if the author can piece my heart back together and Darhower did just that.
Kennedy held strong because she’s not only protecting her heart that has already been broken by this man, but we have the sweetest five-year-old to think of. There was no way that Kennedy would blindly let the man that she used to love back into their lives so easily.
Normally flashback scenes aren’t my favorite, but it was very necessary for their story. I felt like maybe there was too many, which made the book feel longer than it should have been. But that didn’t hinder me too much during my reading, I wasn’t going to stop anytime soon.
This not only tops a favorite for the year, but forever will be on my favorite that I love to re-read. Also, 10 more points for some pretty great side characters, how often do you get a pretty solid group where you’re just loving everyone?!
Narrators were solid choices, I mean I couldn’t stop listening since I pushed play. They brought every single emotion through and I felt it all. Can’t wait to listen to more of their narrations.
