It is okay. I am only halfway through and dont love it as much as I thought I would. It is very predicatble so far and it wants me to read about the other characters. Johnny is a strong mosunderstood man while rachel is tough. I had a big problem with rachel not letting other people help her with her problems. I loved her son and the other teenagers though.Hope it gets better. Why would you protect someone who hurt you? I cant wrap my head around it. The second half was much better than the firs ...more

This book fell flat, had too many bad guys, most of whom saw no consequences. I didn't see how the two of them had chemistry to overcome their obstacles. Very one dimensional. This book had great reviews and I was on a hold list at library for a long time, but I just don't see what the others saw in this book. I managed to finish it so it got 2 stars.

USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author Rita Herron fell in love with books at the ripe age of eight when she read her first Trixie Belden mystery. Although she wanted to be a writer then and actually scrawled her first novel at age twelve, she didn’t think real people grew up to be writers, so she became a kindergarten teacher instead. Ten years ago, she traded her classroom storytelling a ...more
