Ghost by Kat Blackthorne


DNF @ 10%

Man, if you're going to write gothic smut, having a last name like Blackthorne is like winning the lottery. Hardcore. I had high hopes for GHOST. I loved the skull mask and the creepy neons. I felt like I had just been invited to the world's coolest Halloween rave. And speaking of Halloween, the town where this book is set is OBSESSED with it. Um, same??? I was all but ready to commit on the spot.

Sadly, I could not get into this book. I feel like GHOST is one of those dark romances that feels like it needs to remind you that it's a dark romance every other page by being super edgy. I know some people are super into that and that's fine, but I am not. I like a little more subtlety. Making the hero a creepy therapist from the get-go kind of spoiled the mystery. (Also he's like, ethical? I hardly know all.)

Not my cuppa, but maybe it'll be yours.
