They call me Ghost for a reason. Silent and in the shadows, I don't make my move until I am absolutely sure of everything. Four years ago I was sure about Jenna. My best friend's kid sister had grown up into a spitfire I couldn't resist. One night we stopped resisting.
We promised we'd keep it a secret. It was a one-time mistake, but we'd put it behind us. Jenna left but I kept my word. Jenna tried to get out of our corrupt town, but it pulled her back in again. Now she needs help. She needs protection. I'll do all of that for her, if she'll just shut the hell up and let me. She can even keep all of her secrets, except for one....
The Lords of Carnage MC has haunted me from the moment I was born. No matter how much I try to get away, they are there - waiting to pull me back into the life that stole my father, my mother, and then my brother from me. The ghosts of my past keep rising from the dead. Now the past is stirring again, and all I want to do is run away. I'm back in the world I fled, and the secrets and lies of my whole family are about to be laid bare. But it's not just me anymore. I've got my little boy to look out for, too. I'm his only family. And his father has no idea he exists.
I swore I would never go back to the MC. I swore I would never make the same mistakes again. But making mistakes with Casper Watkins is too hard to resist....
Contains mature themes.

I enjoyed this book. First time author. I loved Ghost character. The heroine was a bit annoying. But I loved the storyline and the narrators

Flat characters and more
All in all, Ghost is a decent book.
What I was really missing was character development!
Not a lot was put into making the characters have in-depth character traits, and were honestly rather flat. The story had potential, but seemed superficial. There were no dynamic relationships that went back and forth, and it seemed like you were just meant to accept "oh, so this is happening now". Besides, it was pretty predictable. And the Iron Spiders? Why didn't we hear more about them? There was a real potential there.
Now, for the narrators:
Troy Duran did what he could with the flat character he was given. It was probably the best part of the story, but a shame to have such a good narrator talk for a mediocre character. The not-too-obvious emotions were there as always, and he did a fine job!
Jillian Macie was too slow. It felt like she was sleepy the entire time, and it really slowed down the pace of a supposedly exciting book, which ruined it for me - and considering she has the most chapters, this part is important.
She got over the murder too quickly. Seemed unrealistic.And her fear about Noah being Casper's child were exaggerated, so it actually made me frustrated with her in a way that did not compliment the story.
