Code Name: Ghost (Jameson Force Security, Book #5)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: June 30, 2020

 

Synopsis:
I knew the risks of this job when I signed on with Jameson Force Security. Knew my time as a marine would prepare me for the danger I would face. But no amount of training could have ever prepared me for the helplessness of watching my teammates die, the agonizing mental and physical pain of torture, or the despair of captivity.

Returning home to Pittsburgh following a mission gone wrong, I am riddled with guilt and haunted by nightmares. I spend my days trying to regain the parts of myself I lost in that desert, the pieces that made me the Malik Fournier I once was. While the physical effects of my torture are fading, the emotional ones are proving much more stubborn and I find solace from the last person I should ever seek such comfort.

Anna Tate lost even more than I did in that mission. Now a widow and a single mom to the daughter she gave birth to shortly after her husband’s death, Anna offers me comfort I don’t deserve. As my feelings for Anna grow, I worry that once she learns the truth about what happened, she’ll turn her back on me.

I pull her to me just as tightly as I push her away. Hoping this forbidden love will save me from the ghost I’ve become.

5 out of 5 stars

Code Name: Ghost is the fifth book in the Jameson Force Security Series by Sawyer Bennett. You can read each book as standalone but I highly recommend reading the series since it’s badass and sexy. You are first introduced to Malik briefly in Code Name: Genesis and see if more until he goes missing in Code Name: Heist while on a mission. That is also where you met Anna, Jimmy’s wife and Malik’s coworker.

 

Anna lost her husband almost six months ago while he was on a mission is Syria. She is now a single mom to a four month old girl named Avery. She is also Kynan’s assistant at Jameson Force Security. She felt closer to Jimmy being there and with her background in the military she felt it was where she belonged. The group was like family to her. She only met Malik once and that was the night before flying out to Syria and now he was back. She was happy. It gave her hope. But, what she didn’t expect were the feelings she had towards him. It felt like a bond. A connection. She wasn’t sure if it was right or if it was wrong but she had to figure it out.

 

Malik went through hell over the last five months in a hole in the desert. He was now back and wanted to get back to work. But first he has to get cleared. The guilt was there. He feels he was at fault for Jimmy and Sal’s deaths. It should had been him and now he was working alongside Anna with thoughts he shouldn’t think. Feelings he shouldn’t have. She was beautiful, strong, funny, and didn’t hate him. He didn’t want to feel this way but it was undeniable but was it right?

 

Aw! I love their story. They are just so sweet together. It’s complicated and unexpected and beautiful. I wanted to hug them both and tell them everything was going to be ok. I can’t wait for the next book. Oh man, Cage is in so much trouble.

 

Quotes:

 

“You’re such a caveman.”

“Well, don’t make me conk you over the head and drag you to my cave,” I retort.

 

“Trust me, Malik.”

 

He then sends an especially sly smirk at my mom and adds, “And she came on to me first. Don’t let her tell you otherwise.

Code Name: Ghost is the fifth book in the Jameson Force Security series by the talented Sawyer Bennett. I’m loving this series and have been waiting to see what was going to happen with Malik Fournier. We met him briefly before he was sent out on a mission and never came back. He was missing for five months and finally brought back home. When he is paired up to work with Anna, the widow of a man who was killed on his mission, he’s surprised to find how at ease he is with her. Their friendship is just easy and nice. They know what each other went through, and grief is a powerful bond. But friendship doesn’t seem to be enough. The attraction is there and it’s about to take over. Anna doesn’t deny her feelings for Malik when she has her first thought about hot attractive he is. She’s mourned the loss of her husband and is ready to move on with her life. Being with Malik just feels right and she’s not going to walk away from the possibility of happiness. Will Anna and Malik be able to bury the past and move forward together? Will Malik’s guilt be too much for him? I loved this story! Anna and Malik just clicked and I loved that. They were open and honest with each other and that makes all the difference. Second chances aren’t a given, but sometimes fate steps in and gives you what you need even if it doesn’t seem like it. Looking forward to the next one!
