Ghost hunting just got sexy.
It’s no secret amongst the Phantoms crew that lead investigator Sammy Hanesworth pretty much hates psychologist Cain McClutchen. The tension between them is taut with dislike…and unexpected attraction. Cain knows full well that something about him rubs Sammy the wrong way. But now they’re on a terrifying case-with orders from the network to get along or else.
Filled with past horrors, the Nebraskan site is more than creepy. And Sammy knows it all too well. It’s her hometown and near the place where her mother was killed. As the sinister presence makes itself known, Sammy finds herself turning to the last person she ever expected-Cain. Even as darkness surrounds them, tensions gives way to something bright and unexpectedly intimate. But nothing will prepare them for the evil they are about to face…
The safest place is with the guy she doesn’t trust…
And she’s done it again! Kelly Moran has weaved a tale so captivating she had me laughing periodically, then sobbing into my pillow at 4:30AM. I kept promising myself one more chapter until i couldn’t see straight and called it quits for the night.
Sammy believes herself to be weak, has major trust issues and enough trouble in her life to damage anyone. But she’s such a strong character and i admired the hell out of her. Her attitude towards Cain made my stomach ache from laughing too much, they make a beautiful pair.
Cain, oh lovely Cain *sigh* My heart bled for him, i just wanted to put my arms round him, squeeze and never let go. Perfection, that’s the first word to come to mind when i think about Cain. Having suffered great pain at an early age he doesn’t give up, he keeps searching for that something to make him whole again. And he doesn’t half find it.
Ghost of You is darker than the others in the series, i think. The place they go, the history surrounding it, the ghostly inhabitants. Add them all together and they gave me a major case of goosebumps.
I finished this book a few hours ago now and i still cant stop thinking about it. Its one of the ones that stick to you like glue, such a heart-breakingly beautiful story. By far my favourite couple in the Phantoms series.
