Goodreads Description: It happened like this. I was stolen from an airport. Taken from everything I knew, everything I was used to. Taken to sand and heat, dirt and danger. And he expected me to love him. This is my story. A letter from nowhere. Sixteen year old Gemma is kidnapped from Bangkok airport and taken to the Australian Outback. This wild and desolate landscape becomes almost a character in the book, so vividly is it described. Ty, her captor, is no stereotype. He is young, fit and completely gorgeous. This new life in the wilderness has been years in the planning. He loves only her, wants only her. Under the hot glare of the Australian sun, cut off from the world outside, can the force of his love make Gemma love him back? The story takes the form of a letter, written by Gemma to Ty, reflecting on those strange and disturbing months in the outback. Months when the lines between love and obsession, and love and dependency, blur until they don’t exist – almost.

I read this book on recommendation from a friend and I have to say I was disappointed very much in the beginning. I had my rating in my head from the start. I was going to give it 3 stars the only thing to change that was very last group of pages. I hated the beginning it was very boring for me. I have tried to read this book for 3 years finally I just told myself to push through and finish. Which I did and I’m glad I did. I think the more and more you learned about Ty made me want to keep reading. Overall it was an okay read.

Happy Reading,
Bubbles ❤
