Publisher's Summary

On May 15, 1975, 15-year-old Ginny Lemon is abducted from a convenience store in Fort Lauderdale by a member of one of the most notorious and brutal motorcycle gangs in South Florida. From that moment on, her life is forever changed. She gets a new name, a new identity, and a new life in the midst of the gang's base on the edge of the Florida Everglades - a frightening, rough, and violent world much like the swamps themselves, where everyone has an alias and loyalty is tantamount to survival.
And at the center of it all is the gang's leader, Grizz: massive, ruggedly handsome, terrifying, and somehow, when it comes to Ginny, tender. So begins a tale of emotional obsession and manipulation, of a young woman ripped from everything she knows. Precocious and intelligent but still very much a teenager, Ginny struggles to adapt to her existence, initially fighting and then coming to terms with her captivity. Will she be rescued? Will she escape? Will she get out alive - or get out at all?

LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!

After about 1,000 people telling my how great this book is I finally took the time to listen to it and I'm sure you'll be surprised to know that they were all RIGHT!!!

After starting the book I thought no way would I end up liking Grizz, and boy was I wrong! I can't wrap my head around such a violent, cold person being so completely soft when it comes to anyone! I was a little disappointed when the books starts with the ending, I spent the entire book wondering if this was it or that was it cause I knew for a fact it was happening. I really can't say anything that everyone else hasn't already....READ THIS BOOK YOU WON'T REGRET IT!

The narration was good too :)

Just another perspective

I just wanted to give a perspective that I did not see in other reviews. I listened to this whole story. It didn't kill me to listen to it - meaning I was not bored or pushing through it to get my money's worth out of it. That being said, I didn't really enjoy the book. It wasn't like I "couldn't put it down" - I could. Easily. It was just something to pass the time when I didn't have anything else to do. It is written well enough. A romance it is not. The female lead is only 15 and the male lead has to be at the very least, 29 years old. It is not romance for an 30 year old man to essentially rape a 15 year old girl. I don't care that she "consented" to it. Even the author refers to it as rape. So there you go. This book was not what I was expecting from the other reviews. Be aware if you buy this book that it is not a lovey dovey romance. It is not a happily ever after type story. I did not even feel like there was a cliffhanger - so to speak. I just felt like every character pretty much was a crazy person and the only people I felt sorry for were the children born into the twisted lifestyle these people were living. Just my two cents...
