When Hanley Helton discovers a boy living in her garage, she knows she should kick him out. But Nate is too charming to be dangerous. He just needs a place to get away, which Hanley understands. Her own escape methods (vodka, black hair dye, and pretending the past didn't happen) are more traditional, but who is she to judge?
Nate doesn't tell her why he's in her garage, and she doesn't tell him what she's running from. Soon, Hanley's trading her late-night escapades for all-night conversations and stolen kisses. But when Nate's recognized as the missing teen from the news, Hanley isn't sure which is worse: that she's harboring a fugitive, or that she's in love with one.
The first page totally sucked me in and didn’t let go! The first sentence says…
The third step down holds my fate in its hands.
That totally made me curious. As I continued to read I felt as if I was in Alice in Wonderland, curiouser and curiouser! I wanted to read everyone word but this is so good that I also wanted to speed read to find out what was going to happen!
The characters are fabulous. Hanley and Nate both have some serious issues but Erin Fletcher does a great job about just giving the tiniest bit of information about them, just enough to keep people interested but not so little that I ever felt like I was loosing interest. Every piece was like a bit of gold! And these two have some serious issues to work through which literally takes the entire book. I felt like I grew with them as I got to know their full stories.
And the sidekicks were absolutely fabulous. A bit of comedy with them but not enough to forget about the seriousness of the situations they found themselves in. Their use of the saying “Mental tequila” just had me cracking up! Much better then the normal way they would use to mentally strengthen themselves! The plot was perfectly timed and extremely emotional.
All in all I loved the characters, thought the plot was magnificent, and really enjoyed Erin’s writing! Super excited that this was my first book of 2014! If they’re all like this I’m in for a great year!
Erin Fletcher is a morning person who does most of her writing before sunrise while drinking excessive quantities of coffee, believes flip-flops qualify as year-round footwear, and would spend every day at the beach if she could. She has a bachelor’s degree in mathematics (which is almost never useful when writing books) and lives in North Carolina.
