New Release + Review: GHOSTED by Rina Kent

Title: Ghosted
Author: Rina Kent
Genre: Mafia Romance Suspense
Series: Team Zero #2
*can be read as a standalone*

Dark. Dangerous. Deadly.

Those facts should’ve kept me away from this underground world where people disappear and never return.

They didn’t.

His mistake: Taking Zoe, someone I consider a sister. I will stop at nothing to get her back. Even if it means infiltrating a notorious organised crime ring in search of the faceless ghost who plucked her away.

My mistake: Not expecting him. Julian—the guard surrounded by a shroud of darkness and mystery. I'm helplessly and dangerously drawn to the man within.

The more I get lost in him, the riskier my mission becomes.
What if Julian is more than a mere guard?
What if he’s related to this man called Ghost?

4 stars Ghosted is the 2nd book in this author’s Team Zero series and it can be read as a standalone.  This is only my second book by this author and I am hooked.  Ghosted is a fast-paced romantic suspense that will keep you on your toes.  Both Elle and Ghost had troubled childhoods that greatly affected who they are today.  Ellie is strong, resilient and fiercely loyal to her “family” - qualities that make her a strong heroine.  Ghost/Julian is an intriguing character with an even more unique background.  He too, is fiercely loyal to his “family”. He is playing an intricate game in this mafia world and not everyone can be trusted.  He can be a killer, but also sweet and protective towards Elle.  The two of them are attracted to each other, but can they trust each other?  I enjoyed this book’s storyline and the unraveling of the mystery of what really happened to Zoe.  I also liked the secondary characters  - especially Scar(lett) and Shadow. Ghosted is full of action, secrets, betrayals, chemistry, and twists and turns. I am definitely looking forward to future books in this Team Zero series! I received this book for free and I voluntarily leave this review.

Rina Kent is a lover of suspenseful plots and edgy characters. She has always been obsessed with romance. Storytelling is in her blood. Plotting is her addiction. Flawed and gripping characters are her drug. She makes it her mission to give them all types of trouble before granting them happy endings.

When not scheming her characters' fate, Rina manages a hectic schedule divided between studying and living with the most supportive husband and a not-very-supportive cat.
