Mindy Lou's Book Review
What a great pairing. Tess is an ER doctor who has a traumatic past that has shaped her future. She's one of my favorite kind of heroines because she was completely upfront and honest with James. That seems to be a rare find, so I love it even more when an author gives us this kind of heroine. She is a bit socially awkward but I think that added to her appeal.

If you have read this author before, then you know James is the kind of hero that took one look at Tess and his focus shifted. He saw the
OMG!! Talk about intensity!!! This book has it in spades!

With the exception of two close friends, Tess is a loner. She works, goes home and works some more. She doesnt have time for anything more, and that is by her choosing.

Image result for emergency room messy trauma

But after a particularly awful day, she decides to take one night with James and soon finds herself needing him for more than just one night.

James has a past that has left his hands covered in blood. From the minute he lays eyes on Tess the empty place that was once his

Another massively enjoyable addition to the Wilde Ways series. James Ghost Smith and Tess Barretts story kept me reading, with the authors usual twists and turns, action, sexy-times and great secondary characters.

She saved lives He took them.

The doctor and the assassin, not a match you would generally pair up, but the heart wants what it wants, and as their eyes meet across the crowded nightclub, nothing will ever be the same again for either of them. Both have

With the exception of two close friends, dedicated doctor Tess Barrett is a loner, one who hates sharing her past and sill finds herself hunted by memories. She works, goes home and works some more, but during a night out with her two friends she and James meet and she finds herself thinking about something other than work. James past is shrouded in blood, death and darkness, he knows he should keep away, but from the get go Tess sinks deep into his skin, and he finds himself unable to

5 - There Aren't Enough Words In The World To Describe How Much I Love James - Stars

From the moment we met Ghost in the previous book I was intrigued by him. By the time we got to the end of the book I was dying to know if Cynthia was going to write a book about him. I think I screamed out loud when I realized she already had. January seemed like forever back then.

Well, it was absolutely worth the wait. This is probably one of my favorite Cynthia Eden books and it all has to do with James. He

Well here we have the assassin and the doctor so not exactly a combination made in heaven because one takes lives and one saves them ! Ghost aka James who previously made such an impact in this series is trying to do things legitimately but with his past do things ever stay dead and buried ?
Tess has her own secrets but maybe it's time she just dipped her toe on the wild side ? A no strings few nights with sexy James might just be the healing medicine she needs but even good girl Tess has a past

There is just something about Cynthia Eden's writing that keeps me coming back. I just love her books and don't think that from all the ones I've read that I have one I didn't like.

She writes about wonderful alpha men who will do anything they can to protect the people they care about. It doesn't hurt that they are HOT too! And did I mention smart? It's a real turn on for me. Love a smart man.

Another romantic suspense with toe curling romance

Cynthia Eden comes back with another action packed romance this year with Ghost of a Chance though I'll call this more of a romance than action.

Dr. Barrett is secretive and a workaholic. A night out with her friends crosses her path with the infamous club owner James Smith. Though attracted to him at a very primitive level, she backs up at the last moment. But when she has a bad day at the hospital, she finds herself at his club again.

This one just wasn't for me. In theory, I could have liked the setup, but the execution was too much instalove and too many different elements of their past intersecting in the main plot drama.

Excited that Linc and Blair are next, though.

I don't want to give you up. The words tore from her. I accepted your deal. playtime is over.

James, that guy... I am so happy he's got his story, because as of the previous books, I knew he had a story to tell.. & boy did he..😍

James was unexpected in so many ways, his sense of humor especially😁.. being an ex-assassin he's seen a lot of darkness but it's all behind, but... past Always catches up, doesn't it?

From the moment he saw Tess, he fell for her, hard.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Ghost Of A Chance by Cynthia Eden is book 7 in the Wilde Ways Series. This is the story of James Smith and Tess Barrett. I have read the previous books (Loved Them!) which added to my enjoyment of this one but I do feel you could make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
James has a dark past but now is working as a Club Owner and this is where he sees Tess. Tess is a ER DR who has a bad past that makes her to keep people at arm lengths. So when James and her have their hot night but its

Thank you to Netgalley for a advanced copy for an honest review. Ghost is back! I love Cynthia Edens books and I remember Ghost from previous Wilde Ways books and I am so glad he got his story. Tess and overworked ER doctor goes to a club and is instantly attracted to James, the club owner. James has a colorful past working for the government as an assassin. Soon bad things start happening to Tess, is it someone getting to Ghost thru Tess or has Tess past come back to her. I loved these ...more

James Ghost Smith had my interest since he first appeared in book 5. So mysterious and broody and i immediately wanted to know more about him.
Dr. Tessa Barrett, was a strong woman and yet so vulnerable. I loved how their relationship started. I loved how James became infatuated with her. I loved how possessive and jealous he was but more importantly how protective he became of Tessa.
Tessa is the perfect woman for him.
The suspense and romance is perfect in this authors books. Thats what I can

In this latest installment of Cynthia Edens Wilde Ways series, we see a familiar character. I know these are all listed as books that are standalones, and they are, for the most part. However, with this book, if you dont know Ghosts history with the team, I think youre missing out. You wont be confused or anything, dont worry!

When Tess Barrett is out for a girls night with her friends, she cant stop looking at a super hot guy who coincidentally can

This book is everything I never knew I needed. Apparently, I adore romances about ex-CIA assassins who become utterly obsessed with good girl doctors. I was so excited for this book when I saw it was coming out, but Ive only just gotten around to reading it because life has been busy.

Ghost of a Chance made me so happy! Not because its particularly feel-good, but I just loved everything about it. James is such a great antihero type, especially if you like intense heroes who are

Ghost Of A Chance was an intense, page turner of a story that I could not put down. This is a thrilling non stop action story with excellent and likeable characters and a really intriguing storyline! Thanks to combustible chemistry, wonderful characters, and a storyline that was not only full of suspense, and drama, but secrets and lies, and it genuinely kept me guessing until the very end.

Even the bad guy get his HEA with the least expected person: a doctor. Talk about ironic, but well written. That was a good twist; a former assassin falls in love with a doctor. I loved their story. So far this has been my favorite on the series. I loved how he would just put her first from the moment they met. Lots of action, and suspense. Another amazing story.

I found Tess to be adorable and strong, which I thought was the perfect match for James. I loved the suspense and mystery surrounding James and Tess.

Finally, Ghost! I've been so ready to get the story on Ghost, and it didn't disappoint. Tess was strong enough to be a perfect match for James. She was exactly what he never knew he needed or wanted. Their story was a perfect sexy and suspenseful addition to this series, and the bonus of featuring Wilde agents Cole, Linc, and Blair made me enjoy the story even more. I truly can't wait to read Blair and Linc's story.

I received an ARC from Net Galley for honest review.

3.5 stars. Quickie review: This was a pretty good read. It is a romantic suspense story between a lonely, formerly homeless teen turned ER doctor and a former military assassin. The story was a little dark and depressing at times. I also found it a bit slow and dry too. It is pretty angsty with a good bit of back and forth between the couple and not many happy times. But I still found the book entertaining and enjoyed it. I liked James and Tess. I was happy to see them overcome their pasts and ...more

If Cynthia Eden isn't an autobuy for you by now, what are you waiting for? Her Wilde Ways books stand alone but also build on each other and keep the romance and suspense high.

Tess is an ER doctor with a troubled past, has no time for a relationship, and tries to help everyone no matter their situation. Ghost tells Tess the truth from the beginning about who he really is, but of course like
