n 2003, journalist Connor Regan marched through London to add his voice to a million others, decrying the imminent invasion of Iraq. Eight months later, his brother, James, was killed in action in Mosul.
Three years on, Connor finds himself bound for Iraq to embed with an elite SAS team. He sets his boots on the ground looking for closure and solace—anything to ease the pain of his brother’s death. Instead he finds Sergeant Nathan Thompson.
Nat Thompson is a veteran commander, hardened by years of combat and haunted by the loss of his best friend. Being lumbered with a civilian is a hassle Nat doesn’t need, and he vows to do nothing more than keep the hapless hack from harm’s way.
But Connor proves far from hapless, and too compelling to ignore for long. He walks straight through the steel wall Nat’s built around his heart, and when their mission puts him in mortal danger, Nat must lay old ghosts to rest and fight to the death for the only man he’s ever truly loved.
Caroline reviewed the eBook here.
I loved this story so very much. Gritty and realistic with two masculine alpha men fighting for each other and for love.
I’ll pull a couple quotes from Caroline’s review.
If I ever had to imagine what going on a military tour in a foreign country would be like I think Garrett Leigh and my imagination would be at one with each other. Between Ghosts felt very realistic in my head, from stepping into the helicopter, to life in the palace and to the tension that stretched every last nerve of these men who just tried to survive each day. It’s a gritty read about the lives of soldiers that are fighting a sometimes invisible enemy that is determined to kill them.
Nat and Connor find themselves thrown together in the starkest of conditions. Their moments are snatched, rough and emotional. Every moment could be their last and there is an urgency between them when they come together. You have to stretch your imagination a little towards the end but if you are a Garett Leigh fan and/or a fan of military stories then this is for you!
Despite having a massive amount of books on Audible I’ve never listened to a book by Craig Beck. It’s easy to see why he’s such a well-employed narrator. He did an excellent job with these guys and got their voices perfectly. He doesn’t employ any wile tricks but instead use subtler nuances to distinguish between the characters.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
