Code Name: Ghost by Sawyer Bennett Release Blitz

I knew the risks of this job when I signed on with Jameson Force Security. Knew my time as a marine would prepare me for the danger I would face. But no amount of training could have ever prepared me for the helplessness of watching my teammates die, the agonizing mental and physical pain of torture, or the despair of captivity.

Returning home to Pittsburgh following a mission gone wrong, I am riddled with guilt and haunted by nightmares. I spend my days trying to regain the parts of myself I lost in that desert, the pieces that made me the Malik Fournier I once was. While the physical effects of my torture are fading, the emotional ones are proving much more stubborn and I find solace from the last person I should ever seek such comfort.

Anna Tate lost even more than I did in that mission. Now a widow and a single mom to the daughter she gave birth to shortly after her husband’s death, Anna offers me comfort I don’t deserve. As my feelings for Anna grow, I worry that once she learns the truth about what happened, she’ll turn her back on me.

I pull her to me just as tightly as I push her away. Hoping this forbidden love will save me from the ghost I’ve become.

I have waited for this story since Malik went missing; it has been a struggle for him, but he has now been rescued and is trying to get his life back on track.

As Malik adjusts at being back at Jameson Force, all he wants to do is get back in the field. He doesn't want to talk about what happened or how he is feeling. He was not expecting Anna to come at him from out of the blue. As they grow closer, he has a feeling that when she learns how her husband died, she will not want anything to do with him.

Anna is happy that Malik has been rescued, she didn't know him before he left on the mission where he was kidnapped. Now he is back and they are working together. As they become close, she is beginning to have feelings for him.

What happens when Anna finds out just what happened when Malik was kidnapped and Jimmy died? Can their new relationship survive the guilt that Malik is feeling? What will happen when Malik is approved to go back on missions?

This is another great story for Jameson Force Security. It is filled with pain, heartache, heartbreak, and love to heal them both, if given a chance. I cannot wait for the next one. I hope you enjoy this one too.

This is the fifth book in the series – and wow, have we been waiting for Malik aka Ghost to return home and share his story. I would definitely recommend that you read them in order, to get the full richness of the Jameson family and the importance that they place on their community. It is not only in this series that we know of his disappearance, as he is brother to the Fournier hockey players in the Arizona Vengeance books, and he is mentioned in the Wicked Horse series too.

Malik may be back, but he is still deeply affected by what happened to him and the team, and the guilt is a heavy weight on his shoulders. That he feels so much for Anna is both a blessing and a curse. She most definitely makes him feel and want to be alive. Her impact on the team generally is important, but for Malik it is entwined with grief, loss, love, and hope for a future he never thought he could have.

Getting the story from both sides, we can appreciate that they are two intelligent, passionate people who believe in communication, trust, and friendship. It makes for a very lovely love story – I highly recommend it to you.

Malik had almost lost hope. Alone, beaten, and starving, he knows that his time is almost up. He can't help but feel guilty as he is rescued. Going home to his family is just what he needs. When he goes back to Jameson Force, Malik wants to get back to missions, danger, and the life he knew. But with his guilt weighing him down, he doesn't know if he can really just jump back in. When he is forced to speak about his captivity and his guilt, Malik is skeptical. But with the help of his fellow operatives and Anna, Malik learns that it's okay to lean on people.

Anna is compassionate, strong, and an amazing character. I loved how she interacted with the operatives and how she was able to get anyone to open up to her. She is fiercely protective of her team and her family. She befriends Malik knowing that they share a deep connection and loss.

When Malik knows that he wants more from Anna, he's worried that his secret will prevent them from ever finding their own happiness. Seeing these two work through their grief and loss, finding happiness and friendship was a very great story. I can't wait for the next one.
