Eight years can disappear in an instant . . . But their connection runs deeper than ever.
One look at Katie Watts, and Ethan is fifteen again—the boy who risked everything to save a terrified girl from her twisted kidnapper. Now Katie is grown-up—beautiful, composed and telling her story to the world. Ethan was once her guardian angel—and he wants to be sure that she's still safe.
When they reconnect, it's as different people—but Ethan wants Katie every bit as much as she wants him. Yet all he can do is savour every moment they're together until she uncovers who he really is. Because her kidnapper—a convicted serial killer—is also Ethan's father.

Monica Murphy has done something special with this book and delivered a different read. The story she tells is dark and faces a delicate subject that (unfortunately) can also be very real . . .

The plot is captivating and the author makes you experience everything without going into details that could be too overwhelming—and out of your comfort zone—and manages to make the reader connect with both characters, and understand all they have been through. The dual POV really helps in this and it allows you to relate with Katie and Ethan, although—in reality—you truly hope not to have to relate with what happened to Katie ever. Not you, not your loved ones and not anyone in the world. What I didn’t like so much was how sometimes the read would slow down, and I couldn’t completely get Ethan’s choice (at some point he really should have come clean). Also, contrary to the majority, I’m one who loves cliffhangers when I know it’s a series or—like in this case—a duology, but the one in here felt a bit abrupt in my opinion.

Overall, the whole story got me upset and emotional at the same time, which is a good thing because these are the kind of feelings such a story is supposed to set off. And now I want to know how it ends.
