REVIEW: Ghosted

REVIEW: Ghosted

Read a review of J.M. Darhower's Ghosted.

Ghosted is a wonderful story about young love, following your dreams, and the hope that everyone deserves a second chance. Darhower has given us a story about hard work, family, and she even threw in some pretty steamy sexiness.
