Review: Casper's Ghost by Kerri Ann

Casper's Ghost (Crashed, #1)Casper's Ghost by Kerri Ann

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After re-reading this book, I had to change my review. I don't know if I was going through something the first go round or what, but I actually enjoyed it this time. I'm leaving my previous review below as a reminder that some books DO deserve a second chance. This was definitely one of them.

Wyatt - a championship racer, he took advantage of all of the perks his lifestyle offered. His days were filled with women and the fame brought him everything he thought he was looking for... until Circe.


Circe - a woman with a past that haunted her, she preferred to hide in the shadows. But an opportunity forces her into the limelight, catching the eye of the one man who stars in every dirty dream she could imagine. Being the center of Wyatt's attention was a thrill unto itself.

These two were certainly hot together. However, their relationship wasn't easy. Wyatt was a manic depressive and I think the author did a great job of showing us how it rules his life. It explains a lot of his behaviors and I liked how Circe kind of tempered him a bit.

I really enjoyed this author's writing and how this book sets up the further development of her characters. There were a few hiccups with this story's accuracy, such as time discrepancies because from one point to the next it was a few days or a few weeks, but it wasn't enough to discourage me. With one heck of a cliffhanger, I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next and to discovering Circe's truth.

Nope. I've decided that I'm not going to punish the author by leaving a scathing review. So... nope. No to the plot. No to the writing. No to the characters.

It wasn't for me.

This quote is what really got me though...


...petite five eleven frame that dips to a tiny tight waist, which is accented by an overtly voluptuous body that most pay big money for, she’s a pinup in many a boy’s bedrooms.


Who the fluck is petite at 5'11? Who??? I'm barely 5'2 and hate being called petite but that's what I am. At 5'11, she would have to be the skinniest person on earth. Pshaw, tiny tight waist and voluptuous body at 5'11 doesn't sound PETITE to me. How about you?

Circe
All it takes is one wrong choice to change the course of your life forever. It was all planned out; I was going to be someone special. That was me in a nutshell. But, when everything has been in your grasp, how do you live when it all slips away?

My life has been a series of bad memories, bad moves, wrong turns and pain. Lots of pain. Then I met him. I thought that pain would be a thing of the past; I guess not. I thought I was living, but I soon found out I was simply surviving until I met him.

After years of watching from afar, I realized that there is so much more to him. Wyatt Crown is beautiful to watch, lovely to imagine and a dream come true in the flesh. Every woman knows that. Did they know there are darker, more devilish pieces to his soul?

There’s things he can’t show the outside world that is not part of decent society, but, it’s a need he can’t deny.

Wyatt
I’m wealthy beyond what I’ll be able to spend, I have a family that cares, I have everything I could ever ask for -- yet, I’m alone. There’s a hole in me that can’t be filled. There’s a darkness that can only be fed by depravity. Disguised as loved, it’s my bedfellow of choice.

I’m from a family of daredevils. We call ourselves race junkies. I need the roar of the crowd, the rush of pushing limits and most of all -- success. My father is, my sister is and my brother too. We race to win. Nothing less is accepted. If I can’t win, there’s no living with me.

This isn’t your sweet, he said/she said, they found true love. This is dirty, dark, twisted and full of partial hope. Don’t expect a happy ending, but if you get it; you can thank me later.


About The Author
Avid reader, lover of words. To me, picking a book, is like grabbing a movie. If it's wrote well, the story leaps off the page at you, giving you characters that are tangible. I love to make them come to life, and I hope the stories of mine become well loved. I can be found on these other pages.
