Once, I was nothing.
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.
Impulsively, I said yes...

He found me, then fostered me, a

A talented writer can prevail in any genre. I've been following M Never since her "cupcake" days so imagine my surprise as I devoured the critically acclaimed, Ghost Face Killer.

First allow me to introduce the sexy, man-bun wearing, Baz! I swear the name alone sends me into a swoon! Stephanie aka Stevie is his "prey". I swear I can't say another thing without spewing forth spoilers, but I will say the scene around 38% is worthy of an Oscar! I read it five times before I felt I could continue. T

5 "This was freaking spectacular" stars!!

GHOSTFACE KILLER was a story that I didn't want to end. A book that I wished could somehow turn into a series. That's how incredible, shocking, and impressive this story was. I easily fell in love with Stevie and Baz, became intoxicated with their madness, thrilled with their developing relationship, and enchanted by the growth of each character and how intensely they connected. Oh and of course I was drawn into their intimacy...

*Rubs hands together, looks around excitedly* I just read the best book about a bada** women who does some dark, I mean dark things. I was all in from page one. The detailed, deliciously evil plot grasps you in its sinfully sexy clutches and does not let you back up for air until the very end! The dynamic relationship between Stevie and Baz is nothing short of phenomenal. The emotional aspects left me with butterflies and goosebumps! This IMO is an excellent read that leaves you thinking, cringi ...more

GHOSTFACE KILLER: I blame it all on the cover, one look and I wanted to read this, I didn’t look at the synopsis or who the author was, a request later and I had this in my grabby little hands. This is also a first time read for me by this author, but after finishing this book it definitely won't be my last read by this author.

They say ignorance is bliss, I was certainly ignorant when I started this, the author didn’t slowly entice me in the dark, no she stood behind me and

Stevie, the heroine, is supposedly a badass mafia assassin
except really, she's not. You want truly badass female, may I suggest Lisbeth Salander or Lana Myers. You want a truly badass mafia family, then read The Ruthless People Series

All in all, this was an average read, at best.

“How much is your life worth? Is it worth enough to kill for?”
And thus Bastiano "Benny" Velona finds his protégé!! He changes young Stephanie "Stevie" James life , for better or for worse..... we don't know yet .
“You steal from me, I steal from you.”
She's molded into a silent killer ,a Ghost lurking in the shadows . Invisible . Lethal . Beautiful.
Her fate is pre-written at Benny's hands. She is an extension of his hand, a hand with a gun that is. A tool to be used whenever and however he wants.
Whenever a new M. Never book gets announced I'm chomping at the bit to get a copy. This was no exception. It's a story unlike her other books, but it's still written with the flair and incredible punch to the gut storyline that we all expect from an M. Never book.

We follow our Ghostface Killer, Stevie from the age of fourteen. Her journey is deadly, it's dark, and it's completely unexpected. When she gets a job to go after an unknown man in the middle of Colorado, little does she know her life a

If you want to get blown away you need to one click on M. Never’s
Ghostface Killer.
When I sat down and started reading I was expecting, I don't know what I was expecting but the author made my pulse react from
the prologue to the end.

Seriously, you need to read this book.
The settings, the plot, the characters made this one hell of a read.
Usually known for her steam and dominant men this book follows along that path adding in suspense, intrigue with twists and turns I never saw coming.
Violent, yes.

This is the story of Stevie, a 14-year-old girl who did everything to survive. She lived alone on the streets and had to deal with situations that no woman, at no age, needs to deal with... 💔

Until a man named Benny entered her life. 💥
He saved her, raised her, trained her - and made her from a broken girl - to a ruthless killer. And so, Stevie becomes a very dangerous assassin, a Ghostface Killer. ☠

Badass assassin heroine!

The. Heroine in this story overcame a lot to become quite the badass killer. I really thought I would like this one more than I actually did. Both Stevie and Bas are damaged but she is so much more badass than he is. That is ok, but there are several times when he is actually portrayed as quite a sissy.

I am not talking about being off his anti depressants, though that was bad enough because it is not sexy at all to be asking your girl to end it all for you because you d

I enjoyed Ghostface Killer by M Never, but I have to say It didn't really blow me away, In fact, In truth, I think this may have been because my expectations of this book were just so high, maybe too damn high.
So this is going to be a short and sweet review mainly as It's been a couple of weeks since I read this and my memory of events is slightly cloudy as it just didn't quite stick in my head.
I'm having to do a quick skim through of the blurb to give my brain a kick start.
Admitingly I
Liked it but didnt love it...
Guess i am in minority now...*wink*

I don't wanna spoil someone else's experience of future reading of this book but i went in with high, very high expectations ( since i was still reeling from the lastest book i have been simply overtaken by, those of you who follow my reviews probably have an idea of what books i'm talking about) and with the fact that this story has very similar subject, the only distinction I was leaning on was the writing style.

And i guess it did

I picked this up cos I was a huge Wu Tang Clan fan back in the day (those who know of these rap gods will understand what I’m sayin). Fortunately and unfortunately, this story has nothing to do with Wu Tang or the legendary Ghostface Killah, but it’s got a girl assassin and smut. Nuff said.
Told in h’s 1st person POV, standalone story and the epilogue was a nice HFN, borderlining on HEA.

Review @ Midnight Romance


After the previous decent experience from M. Never other book, Moto which didn't work for me, I'm gonna say the word... just WOW! I wasn't sure about this book before but I was wrong. It's a story about a girl with horrible childhood turns into a machine killer. Yup, a hit-woman. I rarely found a heroine as a killer. This is really interesting story.

What a disappointment this book was…How can you absolutely love/devour a book and then…disappointment after disappointment - the MC’s characterisations, the stupid tropes, the (in)consistency of tone, the underwhelming, downright dumb twists…

To start with, I couldn’t help but picture the heroine as the real Ghostface Killah and may I just say, it’s not a great look for a woman.


Wu tang forever, baby!

Alas, that is not the problem…

Audible Review: I read some very glowing reviews on this audible book on Facebook and it convinced me to give this a try. They were right. This was a great book to have on audible. Muffy Newtown was fantastic. Jacob Morgan only had one chapter but it was enough for me to want to see what other books he has narrated. I would recommend the audible for Ghostface Killer.

Story Review: First let me start out with a warning. This is on the dark side. The beginning of the book has a detailed rape scene.

I'm not even sure why or what possessed me to start reading this book in the first place, but it was different. And by different I mean in this book the girl was "a man whore", the one with all the “issues” and I kinda liked that. Was it a good book no, not really, it had the potential to be and then it lost me about halfway through.

I had high hopes for this book. My GR friends rated it 5*, premise looked good, and I expected a fast paced, suspensful, dark romance.
Sadly, I didn't get it.

The story is told mainly from heroine's POV.
It started on a dark side, but quickly deviated from its course after a few pages. I began wondering if I'm reading the right book. Surely, my dark fiction buddies didn't think this was a dark read. Or did they!? I was positive there will be a t

Ghostface Killer was awesome and I didn't want to put it down. Although it wasn't a perfect read and I did have some issues, I loved Baz and Stevie. My main issues was that I wish we got to see the badass Stevie more and I wished Baz was more confident. Now believe me he was definitely confident in the bedroom and we got a lot of that, I just needed more. The first chapter was hard because what was done to a young Stevie was hard to read.

I was looking forward to this. The blurb makes it sound awesome.

But my God, the first scene is a sexual assault scene on the 14-year-old heroine and the next scene is RAPE SCENE on the 14-year-old heroine...

Look, I get it, unfortunate things can happen to a main character, that is not unheard of, but the author framed the sexual assault, aka the spanking scene at the beginning of the book as "sexy."

Um, she's 14 and the grown man who is spanking her in an alley is in his thirties... That made me

No parents in sight, fourteen-year-old Stevie persists through pick-pocketing people on the streets. When a chance encounter with the wrong man threatens to send her to jail, Stevie's desperation escalates. It isn't her first rodeo with the cops, and she's guaranteed an extended stay if she doesn't vanish from their sights. And when the same man returns, with an offer too good to resist, she accepts impulsively. From then on, she is trained to be a lethal kil

When I read the blurb of The Ghostface Killer I knew for sure that this one would be explosive. And it definitely was, from the characters to the storyline.

What a story … from the streets to a trained killer, no one could see Stevie coming. Hiding all her darkness behind an angel facade, she was the ghost killer, the one no one see coming. She is ruthless, sharp as a knife. Damn if that woman isn’t a warrior. After all she went through, I was in
