Ghost is a black ops agent that has the mission of killing Ian Frost, but then it goes all wrong and, instead of assassinate him, he must protect him.

The book needs an editor asap. The repetitions and the switching of names (is he Ghost, Kazu or Kazuhi??) was annoying as hell. The worst of all, though, was the fact that they kiss somewhere between 20% and then they forget it; they even think how is was possible to feel attracted to someone if they hadn't even kissed them yet. Besides, i

This was more than just a thriller, although those parts were really good. It was also a heart wrenching love story. I cried several times. It wasn't perfect but it was so good, it's left me with an intense memory.

More later maybe.

Happy ending? (view spoiler)

I enjoyed this story a lot, though I accidentally read Of Suits and Swords first, which is sort of like the sequel.

It's much more brutal than the first one, though really, can't be clumped together with the really gritty books.

It had quite a wonderful romance, in spite of being quite rushed.

I wished the ending was more. . . conclusive. (view spoiler)

An assassin who went to kill his mark and fell for him. Now this does not sound surprising. BUT the assassin, Ghost, works for the british government and the mark,Ian, was an innocent, who was spared in the last minute.
Interestingly enough it is not a book were the victim falls for the rescuer. For a apparently cold killer, Ghost falls pretty fast in love, so this part was disappointing.
The story is sometimes fast paced and I couldn't connect to the characters in this one, they lacked

A fun and exciting read. Compared to Of Suits and Swords, the love story between the characters wasn't dealt in the corporate world. It held more action/adventure that was exhilarating and scary at the same time. Ghost and Ian were adorable and amidst the circumstances they were very sure of what they want (pride just got in the way for a bit). I was just a bit boggled about Ghost's transformation once he had the opportunity to interact with Ian with the instant reaction to their mutual attracti ...more

Ian and Ghost were enjoyable characters to read about and follow along in the story. The plot was interesting and the supporting characters were likable. There was one thing that really bothered me and that was the way Ghost saw himself as a possession and not as a person (ex. He says this is the story "I belong to him," not "I belong with him" I over thinking it? maybe...). Still it was an enjoyable story with likeable characters and well written.
