J.M Darhower

He’s a troubled young actor, Hollywood’s newest heartthrob, struggling with fame as the star of the latest superhero franchise. Through scandal after scandal, addiction on top of addiction, a flurry of paparazzi hunt him as he fights to conquer his demons.

She’s a single mother, assistant manager at a grocery store, existing in monotony with her five-year-old daughter. Every day when she goes to work, lurid tabloids surround her, the face of a notorious bad boy haunting her from their covers.

A man and a woman, living vastly different lives, but that wasn’t always the case. Once, they were just a boy and a girl who bonded over comic books and fell in love unexpectedly.

When Kennedy Garfield met Jonathan Cunningham back in high school, she knew he had all the makings of a tragic hero. With stars in his eyes, and her heart on her sleeve, the pair ran away together to follow their dreams.

But dreams, sometimes, turn into nightmares.

Now, years later, the only thing they share is a daughter—one who has no idea her father plays her favorite superhero. But Jonathan is desperate to make amends, and at the top of his list is the woman who gave up everything for him and the little girl he hasn’t yet met.


Second chances, angst, grovelling, feels! Darhower has done it again, I fell in love with these characters, and the storyline was compelling and hearty enough for me to not want to put this book down for a second.

Jonathan and Kennedy are High School lovers, but a destructive path to stardom threatens their happy ever after. Their lives are torn apart, and Jonathan Cunningham becomes Jonny Cunning, a superhero living the Hollywood lifestyle, whilst Kennedy is a single mum stuck in her home town watching the love of her life on a TV screen.

Ghosted really was a story that grips you by the heart, the journey for these two was brutal and honest, but so beautiful, with the added cute factor of a wonderfully cute little girl who helps them come back to each other, and remember the love that never left either of them.

An emotional read for sure, and one that deserves a lot of recognition – 5 Stars from me.
