Let me preface this by saying it is a military book and I tend to digress into military language. In other words, I swear like the sailor I am!
This book is fucking amazing. Tamara asked if I’d read it and said that I’d enjoy it. Bullseye! I read it, put it down only to drag my tail to work and picked it up to finish it as soon as I got home.
My bitch? It’s a god damned cliffhanger! But Natasza is already hard at work on the next one and I figure she better move her ass pretty damn quick to finish it!
Now, the hero (and boy would I love to have him in my sights and bed!) Commander Thane Austen is hot, hard and dangerous. He goes through women like paper towels and then he meets Kayla. It’s not only his body that’s hard, so is his head. He has sworn he will never commit to a woman. Regardless of the turmoil and the unknown and unwanted feelings churning inside him, he refuses to change his mind. When the Shark sets his sights on Kayla, hell when any man sets his sights on Kayla, Thane turns caveman. (sigh)
Kayla has had a hard life. She has given up hope of finding trust, let alone love and doesn’t even want to look for it. Betrayed by those that should have protected her, the feelings that the Commander, her boss, bring out in her are totally unwelcome. Getting to know the men on the SEAL teams, especially the Commander’s team, SEAL Team One, Kayla begins again to care. They show her how to have fun and begin to bring her feelings back to life. It makes her wonder when the other shoe will drop. When she becomes the next target in the serial killers sights, Kayla knows, hopes she will die. This is what her life is really like. Dead inside from the pain she has endured, she knows the Shark will succeed in killing her. She just wants her death to mean something, to catch him.
But a match to tinder has less chance of creating fire than these two do whenever they get together. Her calm acceptance of what she considers her fate drives Thane to the brink of insanity. There is nothing, NOTHING he won’t do to protect her no matter what she wants.
This isn’t just a must read. This is a don’t even think of passing it up read! Code Name: Ghost is engrossing and catches you from the first paragraph and doesn’t let you go. Kayla and Thane are wonderfully hardheaded and there is no telling who will come out on top. Code Name: Ghost is sensual and playful in turns, balancing the hard edge of life as a Navy SEAL. Wonderfully descriptive, Code Name: Ghost did an excellent job of describing life in the Navy, making the characters, all the characters come alive.
P.S. Natasza, great job! Now quit reading this and get back to finishing the next one!
Don’t miss out!
