Summary: (Amazon)
Gemma, 16, is on layover at Bangkok Airport, en route with her parents to a vacation in Vietnam. She steps away for just a second, to get a cup of coffee. Ty--rugged, tan, too old, oddly familiar--pays for Gemma's drink. And drugs it. They talk. Their hands touch. And before Gemma knows what's happening, Ty takes her. Steals her away. The unknowing object of a long obsession, Gemma has been kidnapped by her stalker and brought to the desolate Australian Outback.

My thoughts:
When I first received a copy of this novel I was ecstatic! The plot of this novel really appealed to me. After completing it I feel I need to say that it did not meet my expectations. There were too many holes left open for too long. It started to get annoying. I don’t like having the plot start to thrive and then having all amusing aspects disappear for a good amount of time.
The characters in this novel were great though. They were well developed and easy to understand. You were able to have emotions towards the characters because of that. Gemma was well likeable and at times you felt horid for her. Ty was also kind of likeable in a strange way.
