    When I first saw that J. M. Darhower had a new book out, I knew that I'd have to read it. However, I frequently get wild ideas in my head, which are totally unfounded in reality, based on my snap judgments from looking at the cover. That is exactly what happened with this one. I got it in my head that this was going to be a paranormal type of story and I put it in the "some day" category, since it isn't my go-to genre. Of course, it isn't at all ...

    4 StarsThis was a nice read. Not as...angsty as I thought it might be (which is a plus/minus depending on what you're in the mood for), and very sweet.Full review later, maybe.

    5 STARSThe hype is REAL.Which means that for once I’m NOT doing the black sheep thing.Which also means that I fucking LOVED this book.Whis also means that I'm on cloud nine.Confession: I didn’t plan to read it. In fact, I avoided it like the plague. I even removed it from my shelves as soon as I read the blurb and some of the reviews. A Hollywood's newest heartthrob, a weak heroine, a celibate heroine…blah blah blah… Just NO.But when 99% ...

    ALL THE STARS!!!!!!!!!!!! “You’re the queen. I’m just a commoner.”   Oh my God, this book was just perfect! This is hands down second chance romance at its best.

    5 STARS Never make someone else the main character in your own story.” EVERYTHING. This book was EVERYTHING. All of the things. Of the angsty, second chance romance feels variety. You know when you see a book on your feed and find yourself wondering if it's really worth all of the hype? I can tell you with total conviction, that this book is. It's a huge step away from Darhower's other books, pure contemporary, and downright magical. He’s ...

    5 "Second Chance at its Best" StarsThis is how second chance romance is done! The angst. The heartbreak. The build up. The emotion. The history. All of it. Perfectly balanced and perfectly executed. Ghosted is about love, life, loss and the true defination of enduring love. Jonathan and Kennedy's story was beautifully heartbreaking and completely unputdownable. Told in a captivatingly unique back and forth, past to present time hop, Jonathan and ...

  • Angela (Reading Frenzy Book Blog)
    6 stars!Ghosted deserves all the stars in the galaxy plus those yet to be discovered. This book utterly consumed me, and I have zero guilt for shutting out everyone and everything while I devoured it.Typically, I find at least one tiny thing that bothers me about a book, even if it’s a 5-star read. There is absolutely nothing I would change about this book: not a character, not any aspect of the plot, and certainly not the writing style, which ...

    Good god I'm a complete sucker. I'm a sucker for second chance romances. I'm a sucker for celebrity based books. And I am a sucker for anything and everything this author writes💗 This book blew me away, right from the start. This is a book that held me captive, made me hibernate until the end. You need me, sorry I'm over here hiding under a blanket so no one can find me..... I had to find out how it ended. Had to know it ended well. Needed to ...

    ***IT'S ALIVE!!!***My first J.M. Darhower and it was bloody awesome***Sorry, it's long, I rambled but I just couldn't help myself.***I think I must be the ONLY person in the world (slight exaggeration) that had not experienced the greatness of J.M. Darhower. I feel like a bloody fool, to be honest. I knew of J.M. Darhower and that she was very popular but hadn’t had the chance to try her out. A few of my blogging friends online were doing emoji...

    *****FIVE++++++++++++++++++STARS*****One of the best books of 2017!A PERFECT Second Chance Romance!I'm in love with this reckless, starry-eyed fool who, in two day time, is going to walk out my front door, and all I can do is trust he'll come back with that same look of love in his eyes, because if he doesn't, it's going to break more hearts than just my own. And if he breaks hers, I'll never forgive him.Believe the hype people! It's true.This bo...

You know these kinds of books...the ones that you can't seem to shake off, even days after finishing the story you still think about these characters?

  • Alex ★ Comets and Comments ★
    “love doesn’t know titles.” This book annihilated me. It hit hard, it hit perfect and it didn't stop hitting until the last word. Some stories allow their words to come alive and build the perfect fabrication around you. Very rarely do you come across a story that allows its words to make you come alive instead. Jonathan and Kennedy's story is one that is not for the brave of heart, but it will result in making your heart brave. I loved th...

    ★5 STARS★Ghosted tells the story of one time childhood sweethearts, Jonathan Cunningham and Kennedy Garfield. At Seventeen Jonathan is the moon, the stars, and the apple of Kennedy’s eye. At Twenty seven, he’s Hollywood royalty and deadbeat father to their five year old daughter, Madison.The world knows him as “Jonny Cunning” but she knew him back when they shared a love of comics and would skip school to go to the movies.

    Ghosted is the definition of second chance romance cause wow, this story had everything and I mean everything I love in a second chance story. I'm completely blown away by J.M. Darhower. She captured me instantly and I was in love with Kennedy, Jonathan and Maddie. Don't get me started on this adorable kid. She was beyond cute and definitely captured the essence of being a 5-6 year old kid. These characters had depth, multiple layers and showed g...

    Awww, well, fuck it...I LIKED IT! I LIKED IT HELLUWA LOT *wink*as I said, I usually don't read the "hyped" book on the first jump...but then again, since I don't wanna feel left out either, I usually give in and read it in the, without further ado...everybody have already said all there is to say about this book, and I can only agree with them... *shrugs*I won't go into reinterpretating the blurb thingy like I usually do...I...

    3 StarsOverall Opinion: I know I'm in the minority again -- I didn't love it. I enjoyed myself, but I feel like there were some holes in the story that I needed filled in order to love it. Like (view spoiler)[ the H's relationship with his dad, the h's career/dreams, Serena, Cliff, and just their general future with balancing family life and his career (to name a few). (hide spoiler)]. I also felt like the relationship between them was just surfa...

Sometimes you read a book that is so good it just leaves you speechless.I’m speechless. I absolutely loved Ghosted. I LOVED IT. When I started the book I knew within the first page that I was going to devoured this novel like a popsicle on a hot summer day. Ghosted is a l...

    **** 3.75 Stars ****3 Stars for the first part of the story - 50%4.5 Stars for the remaining.It started slow. I was waiting for something big to happen at any time. Something that would make me like the story in epic proportions. I had this feeling for almost half of the story, waiting for heart eyes, I desperately wanted to feel wowed by Ghosted, as ALL my friends and I can't help but wonder, would it have been different if wasn't for all the gl...

    All the "I got's it" stars and then some!This was sheer perfection, it really was. I couldn't have asked for a better second chance romance, in fact I think it's got to be one of the best I've read and I've read a fair few of them. There is not a single thing that I would have wanted changing, the author nailed it 110%.I LOVE a grovel, and this is one of the best I've read - it was done to perfection. Nothing was over-dramatised, nothing was blow...

    There are great books BECAUSE there are great authors! We tend to praise the authors along with the books but in fact there would be no books without them and without their talented pens.J.M Darhower is one of those authors that can write about anything and turn it into a masterpiece."Your dream has become my nightmare, and I’m begging you to let me wake up."Most people found this book emotional but I would define it as raw! Like in the sense o...
