This quick read breathes life into a somewhat amature genre. The characters feel real. They act exactly how you would expect real people to act, and the outcomes are about as close to reality as fiction can get. There are actual "IRL" issues coming to life in this story. Broken homes, abandonment, estranged relationships, and those who come out from the other side,not magnificently altered, but chipped and scarred. This is a wonderful debut, and I hope Janci Patterson gives us more like this, because YA Romance could use the touch of reality that she delivers.

This was such a thrilling book! You'll love it! It's hot, sad, energetic! I loved it so much, and I'm picky about the books I read!

Ricki’s dad is a bounty hunter who chases fugitives that he calls “Skips”. Which is becomes ironic when Ricki’s mom skips out on her. Does her dad try to find her mom? No. He makes her go on his hunts with him, which is fine by her b/c she always dreamed of going with him. But the thing is, she doesn’t want to be a burden to him and wants to leave. When he dad’s next skip is a 17 year old boy, Ricki decides she doesn’t want to leave anymore. She wants to get his story. The more she talks to him the more she likes him. And as she gets closer to Ian, the more things go wrong. Is Ricki in control or falling for Ian’s game? This book threw me for a loop. By the description on the back I thought I had it all figured out. This book was crazy good. Not in the top 10, but it’s high on the list. It makes you think about your life, about the future and that sometimes you can’t do things on your own. Maybe, just maybe you need a shoulder to lean on. I watched Ricki and it reminded me of well me. :D Not with the bounty hunter dad, but with her mom. No. my mom never left, but she chooses a guy over me. This book touched a deep part of me and I will always remember it. Ricki was a strong girl, not in most parts, but where it counted. This book goes to show you that you can’t always see the good in people….kinda like I do. Ricki and I were kinds the same in that that aspect. I know this is a stand alone, but I wouldn’t mind finding out what happens next with Ricki. Ricki- Ricki is like any other 15 year old girl except her dad was never there for her and her mom ran out on her. She wants to be a journalist, which I think she will excel in. She had to grow up fast living with her mother. Under the circumstances I think she handled everything well. And I already stated that she reminded me of me when I was 15. Ian- Let me just say he wasn’t what I expected and leave it at that. Max AKA. Dad- Is a bounty hunter with a soft side. You never really know what’s going on with him until the end of the book. He is a hard man, but a good man. He needs the money so he takes what jobs he can get. He is a man that realizes the mistakes that he has made and wants to make up for it. The Cover: I like the cover. No, it’s not the best cover I’ve ever seen, but I like it. The cover speaks volumes of what happens in the book. Ian with is hands cuffed and Ricki reaching out too help him. 4 Handcuffs
