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.

This title was sent to me in exchange for an honest review. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book for you, Michelle!
When you think of being kidnapped, it is a little exciting right? Somebody wanting you so much, they take you against your will. Naomi’s parents didn’t even want her, they were to busy with their careers. Her disappearance went unnoticed for a day or two.
This story fell short for me. The writing was great but over all the book was un eventful. I think of a kidnapping and I want to read more thrill and excitement. I wish the book would have talked more about Stockholm Syndrome. I wanted there to be something more to why they kidnapped her. In some way I wanted Evie to be crazy and have kidnapped her for a reason other than seeing the robbery.
This book was mainly, kissing, showering, winning, kissing, yoga, winning, meditating, etc… The end of the book felt un finished. To many question left un answered. The story felt unreal to me. I just didn’t feel the emotions that Naomi was feeling, and not even her connection with Jesse. I think the first half of the book I enjoyed and connected with. Then something happened and I can’t explain what. I didn’t feel connected while reading the second half.
