Hungry, abandoned, wandering, and alone. An adolescent street rat fighting for crumbs.
Then a chance encounter changed my entire world.
A man in an expensive suit asked me how much my life was worth.
I didn’t have an answer, because I didn’t know.
He asked if I thought it was worth killing for for.
Impulsively, I said yes…He found me, then fostered me, and in the interim turned me into a killing machine. A modern day La Femme Nikita.Now, I only have one mission. To avenge the death of the man who saved me.
There’s an invisible war on the streets. Us against them. Family against family. Power against power.
They call me Ghostface Killer because they never see me coming.
I understand the weight of that danger.
Because now here I stand, three months pregnant with the barrel of a gun pressed to my head cause I never saw him coming…
Wow…this was so different. We start with Stevie when she is 14, living on the street and she ends up crossing paths with Benny. Benny takes her in to mold her into a killer. She is given a task to take out Benjamin, but when she finally finds him, she is torn by the instant connection to do the assigned job or follow her gut.
This was a complex story with a fantastic strong heroine. She is a stone cold killer who was trained to never show or have any emotions. Unbelievably, Baz is even darker and more twisted than she is. Just when I thought she was going to find a new side of herself, Baz realizes she has been lying to him and she runs from him never looking back. But when they cross paths again will he be willing to listen to her explanation or will he be too focused on her betrayal?
This is one of those stories that it is best to go in blind. The twists are off the charts and it’s best if you don’t have a clue what is going on. I can say this was fantastically written and the characters were complex and I loved so many of them. I think Baz and Stevie are perfect together and I’m so glad the story ended the way it did.

#MSBB – I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
M. Never resides in New York City. When she’s not researching ways to tie up her characters in compromising positions, you can usually find her at the gym kicking the crap out of a punching bag, or eating at some new trendy restaurant.
She has a dependence on sushi and a fetish for boots. Fall is her favorite season.
She is surrounded by family and friends she wouldn’t trade for the world and is a little in love with her readers. The more the merrier. So make sure to say hi!
