"You should be proud of your work. I don't voluntarily read much. This is only the 7th book i've read since high school. I didn't want to put it down, it only took me 2.5 days to read it.  this is a good book. it's 2:20 AM & I gotta work tomorrow. Done with 25 chapters. Forcing myself to bed (plus my iPad battery is just about drained)."

"This author's first book has all the earmarks of success - a compelling story with a very captivating main character and edge of the seat suspense.  I was captured by Dakota very early in the book and literally could not put the book down.....thoroughly enjoyed this book and can't wait for the next one!"​

Love this book! The author writes in a way that draws you into the story. There were nights I could not put the book down. We used this book for Book Club and it provided many hours of active discussion. Highly Recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally awesome!!, July 9, 2014

This book was awesome!! I couldn't put it down. You think you have the story figured out throughout the whole book, but then she hits you with a major plot twist at the end. I definitely recommend reading this book.
