Considering she’s a girl who calculates everything, Addie Battes knew the statistical probability of being abducted in her lifetime—too bad she never analyzed the odds of falling in love with her captor.
While stopping at a crowded rest area one summer night, seventeen-year-old Addie accidentally catches a truck hijacking in progress. Desperate to rid the crime of its only witness, one of the thieves kidnaps Addie. Yet surprisingly, when a renegade thief attempts to silence her for good, Addie is saved by the very man who abducted her. Now, forced on board a cargo ship in the middle of the ocean, Addie finds herself surrounded by international smugglers who want nothing more than to throw her overboard.
All except the artistic and intriguing Charlie Hays, whose strange protectiveness convinces Addie to trust him, even when common sense tells her otherwise. Yet, despite her doubt, and his unrelenting temper, their relationship develops into something much more. But, Charlie’s scorned colleague has stowed away, and as he seeks revenge against his coworker, Addie and Charlie are forced to put their new love—and lives—at risk
My thoughts

A really wonderful book. I recommend it strongly!
It was hard to put it down, nearly impossible actually.
Therefore I give it a 4,5.

I loved this book. It was so much better than I thought it would be. I must say I'm pleasantly surprised by  this book. I found this book on amazon for free and when I read the blurb I thought it would be a mediocre read, but it really wasn't. In some ways it was predictable and in some ways it was not. The Author is really good at was she does and she wrote a really wonderful story. It had everything you want: Suspense, Love, Friendship, Trust and Hate. All cleverly intertwined to make a really great read.

Addie is a girl you just instantly like and sympathize with. She has had a lot to deal with in her young life. Her mother past away, her brother fled to the army and she is left taking care of her dad. She is much more mature than her 17 years and she is also very smart and graduated high school a year earlier.

Charlie is probably the only bad boy I have actually genially liked! He is clearly a victim of circumstances during his upbringing. He does have a good heart but he doesn't really believe in him self. Even though he is in his late twenties he has a lot of maturing to do. The two of them has a lot to of dangerous situations to face in this book and a lot of the danger is because of him and what he does for a living.

This is so worth your time and I can't wait for the next book!
