Drop of Doubt (The Ghost Bird #5) by C.L. Stone


∴ Drop of Doubt (The Ghost Bird #5) by C.L. Stone


Sang Sorenson and the Academy boys return to Ashley Waters High School but before they get a chance to even settle in, Sang’s life is threatened by an anonymous caller.

They retreat to the protective walls of the Morgan estate, a safe house for when the boys are under fire. But when new threats can break through those barriers that once kept them secure, it leaves Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North rushing to figure out who is hunting them.

But when you’re fighting a ghost who seems to know all your secrets, retreating is no longer an option.

The Academy, Deceptively Strategic


“Mr. Blackbourne seemed to understand me completely, reading my thoughts. “I tried to deny it before, too. I can’t any more. You belong with us.” He reached out, his finger catching the tear on my cheek, cleaning my skin. Mr. Blackbourne, the perfectionist. He leaned down, his voice a soft whisper in my ear. “Stay with us. Always.”

I really liked this book and this series. The plot just flows and the story just connects. The characters are each great and I love every one of them. Sang is starting to stand up to the guys more which I am so happy about. For a while, I was worried that she would never tell them when she was annoyed or angry. She’s starting to trust them and call for them when she needs them. Silas, North, Gabriel, Kota, Nathan, Victor, Luke, Dr. Green, and Mr. Blackbourne are starting to include her more as well and I could tell that they made an effort in this book. They aren’t quite where I want them to be but they’ll get there.

I have to admit that I am starting to get annoyed with the books. While the plot is fast paced and moves along nicely, the romantic plot is slow. Sure there is plenty of drama and everything, but let’s face it, NONE of the guys have even kissed her yet! I thought that after the big revelation at the end of Forgiveness and Permission, things would start to move along but only two of the guys (North and Victor) (excluding Mr. Blackbourne) have admitted they love her and have agreed to the sharing plan. C.L. Stone needs to pick up the pace if I am going to remain interested. I know that the 10th book is called First Kiss and if I have to wait that long for one of the boys to just kiss her I’m going to pull my hair out. I like slow burn romance but come on, this is practically nonexistent.
