Griffin thinks he’s made an easy score when he drives off with someone’s Cadillac SUV, but when he discovers 16-year-old Cheyenne in the back seat, he gets more than he bargained for. Not only is Cheyenne suffering from pneumonia, she’s also blind and Griffin must quickly consider his options and what to do with his accidental captive. When he takes her home to his criminal father, things go from bad to worse, especially when they realize that Cheyenne is the daughter of a rich and powerful company president.

Griffin realizes he’s in over his head when his father’s motives become more sinister, and he can’t help but attempt to protect Cheyenne. The prospect of rape or cold blooded murder was a bit violent for something classified as young adult, but a mature enough reader would be able to grasp the gravity of Cheyenne’s situation. During her struggle to survive, Cheyenne lends insight into how it feels to lose one’s sight, something we take for granted daily. It was a compelling look at an unintentional abduction that evolved into something more disturbing. There were a few inconsistencies in the story, but overall, it was suspenseful and engaging.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Amazon Vine program.
