{ARC REVIEW} Ghost (Boston Underworld Book 3) by A. Zavarelli

Title: Ghost (Boston Underworld Book 3)
Author: A. Zavarelli
Genre: Mafia Romance/ Dark Romance/ Romantic Suspense
Rating: 5 Lazy Books



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.
Until him.

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.

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.” 
― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

My Lazy Thoughts:

I thought Crow and Reaper were awesome, but Ghost managed to top both of them. This book, wow. The story will take you in an emotional roller coaster. It was dark and beautiful and I loved every second reading it. It's one of those books that will stay with you days after you've finished it.

Now, Alexei and Talia. These are broken, complex characters with dark, painful pasts. Especially Talia. She'd gone through horrors I couldn't even imagine. And the aftermath was just as heartbreaking. She became a shell of the person she once was. But with Alexei's help, she managed to break out of the shell and find the strength to live.

Alexei, Alexei, Alexei.


Right now, Alexei is my favorite "hero" of the Underworld series. Lyoshenka gutted me. His past experiences made it hard for him to trust people. And although, he was protective and a complete alpha, he was just as damaged as Talia.

But, together, these two healed and helped each other. And in their healing journey, they managed to find solace and love. Seeing them come together has been amazing, their chemistry explosive.

Ghost was no easy read for sure. But it was also the kind of book that you just can't put down. I blame A. Zavarelli for that. She weaved a captivating story that I had to finish it in one sitting. This is just the third book in the series, so already I can't wait for the next installment!

Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
