Release Day & ARC Review!- Ghost Girl by J.B. Salsbury

Title:  Ghostgirl
Author: J.B. Salsbury
Publication Date: June 19th, 2018
Plot: She was brainwashed to believe she could save mankind.

Now she’s the one who needs saving. 

Three years ago Milo Vega was abandoned with his two younger brothers and placed into foster care. Now a twenty-year-old high school senior, covered in gang tattoos, and the school’s janitor, his life is vastly different from the one he was destined for. 

When another foster joins the family, this one from the psychiatric facility, Milo is skeptical. A rare genetic condition makes her unlike any girl he’s ever seen and he wants nothing to do with the one he calls Ghostgirl.

Despite his reluctance, his protective instincts flare when she enrolls in school and eventually an unlikely friendship grows between them. When a tragic event snaps her fragile psyche Milo is faced with the possibility of never seeing her again.

Unless he risks it all to save her. 

“Ghostgirl is so unbelievably unique. I was captivated through each and every page. I can’t wait for more!”  - Harper Sloan, NYT Bestselling Author

"Milo and Mercy took my heart! Such a unique and refreshing story from JB Salsbury! Ghostgirl is now my favorite from her and one of my favorites of all time!" 
--Tijan, NYT Bestselling Author 

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆


Coming from one of my top 5 go to authors, JB Salsbury delivers in this poignant story of love, family, friendship and forging your own path in the world. Born to inherit a life of crime, can Milo break away from his violent past while trying to build a better life for him and his brothers? And with Mercy being brought into the picture, will bringing this new girl into his family with her own turbulent demons be a blessing.... or a curse? 

This story was far different from any JB Salsbury reads I've read thus far. It felt more raw, turbulent and even emotional than the author's other novels, not to mention, the mind gripping background stories and the chemistry between Milo his "Ghostgirl", Mercy's, were unbelievable. Definitely one of those that the sparks are there right away but the friendship and romance is a slowburn which I greatly appreciated. It's NO insta-love at all.

Ghostgirl, was by all means, one of the most unconventional reads and love stories I've come across in a while, and once you start to unravel Mercy's origins, it becomes more and more daunting and yet exciting. Aaah!! The suspense of what's to come will reel readers in and have them pining way for more. 

I loved not only seeing the love and friendship aspects of Milo and Mercy but also their coming to grips with their predicaments and seeing them learn and grow from trials and each other. Not to mention, Milo's protectiveness over Mercy!! Aww, it was adorable seeing him trying to save her while trying to in a way redeem himself throughout the story.

Didn't like that popular girl thing though. Ugh. I hate that gimmick of high school stories but heh that's just me. lol
