GHOSTGIRL – A J.B. Salsbury Review & Giveaway

An original plot line, complex characters, and twists and turns to drag you in to the story, Ghostgirl, is its own brand of romance and mystery. Milo and his brothers have been living in a foster home since the disappearance of their mother and the escape of their crime lord father. Milo has a plan to finish high school, adopt his brothers and move on with their life from his previous affiliations. When a quiet girl with a mysterious condition and an even more mysterious past, Milo’s beliefs will be tested and pushed to the limit.

Mercy, aka our Ghostgirl, is albino and her strikingly pale skin causes her to be a beacon for trouble. Milo doesn’t trust Mercy at first but is intrigued by her for some unknown reason. As he fights his pull towards her, Milo manages what months of therapy for Mercy could not; he begins to break her out of her quiet shell and delve into her traumatic past. As more layers of Mercy unveil themselves, Milo sinks deeper under her spell and falls for her. When chaos strikes and Mercy’s belief in her “powers” come to light and threaten everything Milo holds dear, these two have to fight everything they’ve feared to find a way out.

I cannot express how much I love this story. So unlike any other new adult romance, Ghostgirl pulled me in from the start and never let go. I love that the main point of view is Milo’s as it allows us to become invested with him and his brothers before we truly get to know Mercy. Milo also doesn’t have this immediate attraction to Mercy; as he learns more about her he begins to see her in a new light. This slow burn was completely satisfying as their feelings developed alongside the story. Pieces of Mercy’s past slowly come out as the puzzle of what truly happened to her begins to form. Navigating the past with the struggles of teenage life and Milo’s dangerous family history made a story full of twists turns that I am BEGGING Salsbury for more!


She was brainwashed into believing she could save mankind.

Now, she’s the one who needs saving.

Abandoned with his two younger brothers, Milo Vega was placed in foster care. Now a twenty-year-old high-school senior covered in gang tattoos and working as the school’s janitor, he is living a life vastly different from the one he was destined for.

When another foster joins the family, this one from the psychiatric facility, Milo’s skeptical. A rare genetic condition makes her unlike any girl he’s ever seen, and he wants nothing to do with the one he calls Ghostgirl.

Despite his reluctance, his protective instincts flare when she enrolls in school, and eventually, an unlikely friendship grows between them. When a tragic event snaps her fragile psyche, Milo is faced with the possibility of never seeing her again.

Unless he risks it all to save her.

“Milo and Mercy took my heart! Such a unique and refreshing story from JB Salsbury! Ghostgirl is now my favorite from her and one of my favorites of all time!”
–Tijan, NYT Bestselling Author


Before I started writing all I did was read. There wasn’t a contemporary romance out there that I wouldn’t pick up. One day I realized a lot of stories I was reading seemed to follow the same formula. I got frustrated with predictable outcomes and unimaginative story lines and decided that rather than scour the Internet for the kind of story I wanted to read, I’d just write it.

When I published my first book I didn’t intend to write more than the one. If I could sell six books  to six people I didn’t know I considered myself a success. But that first book sold well over six copies and I knew I couldn’t stop there.

I was bitten by the writing bug and have poured my soul into every novel I’ve penned since. Some of my books have become USA Today Bestsellers, New York Times Bestsellers, and Fighting to Forgive won a RONE Award. I couldn’t be more proud of where my writing has taken me.

I live in Phoenix with my husband and two daughters where I’m lucky to be able to do something I love and still be home to juggle carpool, field trips, and fifth-grade homework.

When I’m not writing, reading, or spending time with my family I can be found on any of the local mountain trails hiking, or at the gym when the desert temps become unbearable. I love being outside, beach vacations, and spending time with friends.
