I have always been a bird. Caged by one prison or another when the only thing I ever wanted was to fly away.
Sold. Beaten. Starved. Drugged.
Nothing scares me anymore.
He makes the numbness go away.
He is hazardous to me. It has nothing to do with his mafia lifestyle, and everything to do with what he offers.
A gilded prison.
A retreat from everything that I once knew. The reality I have no desire to return to.
He thinks he’s caged me, but soon…
I’m going to fly.
I live by a code. The Vory code.
In this mafiya world, there are traditions.
She does not care for these things. She does not care about anything.
She thinks she has me fooled with her haunted eyes.
What she can’t know is that I see her better than most.
She wants to fly.
But I’m going to clip her wings.
And make her my wife.
This is the third book in the Boston Underworld series and it’s just as amazing as the previous books. We were introduced to Alexei in the other two books and I was definitely curious about him.
Both Talia and Alexei are quite damaged having endured horrors, first at the hands of their mothers and then later, in Talia’s case, at the hands of men that saw her as nothing but property. Despite their different lives, at the end of the day, they are both looking for love and acceptance. Their journey was not an easy one but it made for a great read.
Once again Tracy Marks did an outstanding job narrating. She’s amazing with the male voice and with the accents (both the Irish and the Russian). I had already read the book but it was a pleasure listening to it.
Without any hesitation, I gave Ghost five stars.
I was definitely curious about Alexei since he was introduced in the first book. He just stays in his house. After reading book 2, I thought Talia was kind of rude but this one really lets us know what she went through and how she became who she is now. Or at least why she felt she needed to act a certain way.
I have listened to all three book on audio and I have loved them all. As you said, T, Tracy Marks is wonderful with the accents. I think I would recommend these as audiobooks before reading the actual book.
I love this series and gave this book five stars.
