Review ~~ Ghosted by JM Darhower #FiveBlushReview #MustRead #BestOf2017
He’s a troubled young actor, Hollywood’s newest heartthrob, struggling with fame as the star of the latest superhero franchise. Through scandal after scandal, addiction on top of addiction, a flurry of paparazzi hunt him as he fights to conquer his demons.
She’s a single mother, assistant manager at a grocery store, existing in monotony with her five-year-old daughter. Every day when she goes to work, lurid tabloids surround her, the face of a notorious bad boy haunting her from their covers.
A man and a woman, living vastly different lives, but that wasn’t always the case. Once, they were just a boy and a girl who bonded over comic books and fell in love unexpectedly.
When Kennedy Garfield met Jonathan Cunningham back in high school, she knew he had all the makings of a tragic hero. With stars in his eyes, and her heart on her sleeve, the pair ran away together to follow their dreams.
But dreams, sometimes, turn into nightmares.
Now, years later, the only thing they share is a daughter—one who has no idea her father plays her favorite superhero. But Jonathan is desperate to make amends, and at the top of his list is the woman who gave up everything for him and the little girl he hasn’t yet met.

LOUISA’S 5+++ BLUSH REVIEW
I have to say that second chance romances are my all time favorite and JM Darhower has perfected it with this book!
My goodness, this book blew me away. I just loved everything about it. The characters, the writing, the feels, it’s on my top reads of 2017 list for sure!
There is a story within the story. These two have such a history that you need to know it all and it slowly unfolds as you read present time and Kennedy’s story. This book took me on a roller coaster of emotions and often times the ride was scary and invigorating at the same time. I didn’t want to get off this ride…ever!
Kennedy is one heck of a woman, a mom who will do what’s best for her baby and Jonathan who has pretty much done what’s best for himself. Well, the tide has turned and he claims he’s prepared to be the father he’s never been. He has quite a lot to prove to quite a few people, himself being one of those people. Seeing the growth of Jonathan while reading was beautiful and his relationship with Maddie was awe inspiring, having your favorite superhero as your father is something every little girl dreams of, but even more than that – a father that keeps his promises. Jonathan and Maddie’s connection was instant but the relationship builds through the entire book and awe man, a Dad and his little girl is totally swoon worthy!
JM Darhower has once again captivated me with her story and beautiful, descriptive and often angst inducing writing.
I love this book more than ice cream and pretzels – and that’s saying a lot!
