When Naomi Jensen is kidnapped, it takes her parents two days to realize she’s missing. Escape isn’t high on her list of priorities when all she has to return to is an abusive boyfriend and parents who never paid much attention to her. For the first time in her life she’s part of a family—even if it is a family of criminals. But she’s still a captive. In a desperate attempt to regain some control in her life, Naomi embarks on a dangerous plan to make one of her kidnappers think she’s falling in love with him. The plan works too well, and when faced with the chance to escape, Naomi isn’t sure she wants to take it.


I will admit that going into this book I didn’t think I would enjoy it that much.  But, after about 10 pages, I knew that I was wrong.

I loved it.  Loved loved loved it!  I usually avoid books like this because the whole being kidnapped situation really bothers me, but I really enjoyed this story about it.  I think the reason I did was because her captors were super-nice to her and didn’t really mess with her, if you know what I mean.  Even though it isn’t really a very eventful topic with a lot of action, I was completely hooked from page one and couldn’t stop reading.  The story line and writing were amazing, as well as the idea.  The events leading up to the climax were really good too, keeping me interested the entire time.  Really really good.

I really really like Naomi.  She was really really strong and handled her situation very well.  She was smart, could take care of herself, and I think she was an all-around great character.
And then there’s Jesse.  I must say, I didn’t really like him.  I LOVED HIM!!  Give me more Jesse!  He was so nice and sweet and totally swoon-worthy.  *drools over keyboard*
And, last but not least, I really liked the change that Naomi’s parents underwent.  I went from hating them to actually kind of liking them, especially the mom.  She underwent the biggest change, and I really liked that Argyle threw in that extra thing.

I really enjoyed this book a lot and I don’t think it’s being made into a series, but I really hope there’s at least a sequel so I can see what happens to Jesse.
