Publisher's Summary

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.

Emotional Addition to the Series

Overall 4 stars
Performance 4.5 stars
Story 4 stars

This was such an emotional addition to the series! I've been eagerly awaiting Malik's story and it did not disappoint. Fans of the series should note that there isn't a suspenseful plot in Code Name: Ghost. Instead, the focus is purely on Malik and Anna and their struggles to reconcile their feelings and guilt, as well as move forward in a healthy way.

Both Malik and Anna have their own demons to conquer and I appreciated that Sawyer Bennett addressed both the physical and mental tolls that they faced. Anna and Malik recognize that what they share is unique and special, but they understandably have reservations about that incredible connection. I loved that there wasn't any unnecessary drama or angst in this one and that they spoke about things maturely and honestly. They relied on their friends and family to help them through, but also on themselves. I admired Anna and thought she was a wonderful heroine. She was intelligent, driven, and understood when Malik needed her to push and when to pull back. They had amazing chemistry and all the build up between them was so delicious. I also loved the cameos from the Fournier siblings. It was great catching up with everyone and also seeing how close knit they all are. They were such an integral part of Malik's healing.

I initially read this book, but re-reading it via audiobook was much more emotional for me thanks to the amazing performances of Aaron Shedlock and Virginia Rose. The duo were wonderful as Malik and Anna and I felt that they really fit their roles well. Aaron Shedlock was especially incredible at capturing all the fear and vulnerability of Malik. I'm excited for Cage's story next, especially since he's gotten himself into quite the predicament!

Great story!

Malik and Anna's story hits the heart at full speed. Malik has endured torture and barely survived. Anna lost her husband in the same attack that Malik was taken hostage from. These two both have lost so much yet find a kindred soul in each other. Anna and Malik can't help the attraction they have to one another and yet there is some guilt there. But these two have lived through so much pain and find their second chance in one another.

This story was well told and tugged at my heart strings. I would have loved a little more angst as they found their ways to one another, but it was a good story.

The narrators did a great job telling the story.

This series continues to WOW me

I wanted this story more than any of the others. Malik in my eyes was the hero. He risked everything for his team but he survived and they didn’t. He was ridden with guilt and it ate away at his life.

Anna was a trooper. She lost her love bit the Team
Kept her whole. She took life by the strings and moved forward for the sake of her child. Knowing that Malik was safe brighten her life but why was it brighter than she expected.

This story kept you on your toes. The feeling of finally getting something right was in the front of your mind and then seeing this story bloom only made it better.

Kudos to the narrators who bought this story to life in the best way!!

Aaron Shedlock and Virginia Rose did a fantastic job with the narration. I love their voices together! I enjoyed it! Looking forward to listen to the next installment in the Series, Code Name: Rook.

incredible Listen

What an incredible listen that had me completely addicted. I have waiting for Malik's story and wondering how it was going to turn out. Malik is a survivor from being taken captive and then subsequently rescued. He and Anna form what starts as a friendship and is so heart warming to read about. I love how this story developed and seeing how the characters grew from their broken histories and then come together was really heartwarming.

Sweet romance with a good cast of characters!

Both narrators are great for the audio on Audible. Clear quality performances from both the male and female narrators. Recommended.

Sweet romance between Anna and Malik. Anna’s husband died on a mission for a private security firm while she was pregnant, and Anna now works for the same security firm. Malik works for the same private security firm, and was recently captured and tortured by an enemy. Luckily, Malik is saved, but needs to take some time to recover. Anna and Malik end up tasked with working on the same project, so they begin to grow closer while working together and dealing with their hardships. I wasn’t a huge fan of the single mom premise; especially when there was talk about her breast feeding and her milk leaking during sex, but I did like both characters. Anna has the whole wholesome girl next door thing going on, and Malik is a nice guy. There’s a nice connection between them. I wish there was more suspense in this book since it is about a security firm, but this focuses mainly on the healing and romantic aspects. I missed having those action scenes in this book like they were in the other books in this series; more action would’ve added to the fun of the story. I’d say a 3.5 rating for the story, but I rounded up to a 4 because of the good narration and this is an entertaining series. The setup for the next book with Cage and his girl, Jamie, sounds fun, so I’m looking forward to continuing this series!

Healing

I couldn't wait to listen to this book, it is book 5 in the Jameson Force Security Series and just knowing Malik was captured and awaiting rescue has had me hoping for a good outcome for him. The author didn't disappoint.

When Malik makes it back to headquarters he has lots of demons to deal with and the person to help him heal is the last person he could imagine being the one to get his life back with.

Anna was dealt a devastating blow with her husband Jimmy was killed in the same mission that Malik was captured in. She had her daughter and has been holding it together all these months with the help of the Jameson Force family. She had taken a special interest in helping to locate Malik and her job with Jameson was part of that rescue. She never knew though she would rescue both him and her in another way.

This is a great story with emotions and depth, pain and healing and life. Well written and I really enjoyed it.

Aaron Shedlock and Virginia Rose were great as Malik and Anna. The emotion that was needed for this story was there and they kept my attention from beginning to end. I enjoyed listening to both of them.

I loved this book and highly recommend it. It is part of a series but each book is about specific characters so you don't have to have listened/read the others to enjoy this one but they are all good so I encourage you to listen to them as well.

Great series that keeps getting better

I absolutely love the Jameson Force Security series by Sawyer Bennett. It's one of my favorite military series, and i've been impressed with the depth of the writing and development the series has taken.
In another melding of characters from Sawyer's different series, Malik Fournier from the Fournier family depicted in her Hockey series. We also have a few cameo's of Malik's siblings in this book.

This book shows depth of story and character development as Malik and Anna's story develops, as Anna and Malik face the tragedies that have they have experienced that are linked. This story is an emotional journey as this couple faces guilt, grief, and trauma together.

Aaron Shedlock and Virginia Rose do an outstanding job narrating this story, and their acting is really excellent.

This story blew me away

I loved this story!!!!

I feel like I have been anticipating this story since the Fournier family was introduced. Sawyer Bennett has sprinkled in pieces of Malik through so many books. His capture was heartbreaking, and the only thing that kept me going was awaiting this story. AND WOW DID IT NOT DISAPPOINT!!!!!

I loved that both Malik and Anna has a connection that was unexplainable from the start. They both deal with an unimaginable loss and trauma, but finding each other, was like fate.

This is an amazing story that cannot be missed. This is a fantastic addition to this fantastic series, and I cannot wait for the next one.

Aaron Shedlock and Virginia Rose were amazing narrators. This was such a sensitive story and the way in which they retold this story was perfect.

This series keeps getting better!

Code Name: Ghost, for me, was the most anticipated book in the Jameson Force Security series and it has definitely lived up to all of my expectations!
We have been hearing about Malik throughout this series, knowing he was captured, hoping for his rescue wondering how he was going to fair once he was back.
Although he and Anna only met once before when the men were all leaving for the mission that went so bad, now that he is back they have gotten to know each other. They have a special shared bond that brings them closer together as they are both struggling with loss and trying to move on. It is in their bond that they are each able to put many of the broken pieces back together and what starts out as friendship grows into something much bigger.
I just loved these two. Their strength, their passion and their perseverance! I have also had the pleasure of listening to the audio version of this story and the narrators have done an amazing job of bringing these characters to life!
