Very meticulous on all of the descriptions throughout the book and slow-paced thriller lead me to become deeply invested in the characters and the plot-line.

I’m not sure why many reviewers found this book fascinating. Honestly, I felt it very repetitious and slow moving. As a matter of fact, I skipped several pages because it didn’t say much outside of why Ty came to the desert and how it allowed him to escape all of the terrible things in his upbringing, and the repetition of Gemma’s repulsiveness to what Ty did to her and thinking of ways to get away.
The only reason I give it 2 1/2 stars is that I believe the author is a good writer, albeit repetitious and somewhat boring. Not much of a draw for me.

This book made me go on an emotional roller coaster. I hated Ty and then I wanted so bad for Gemma to love him and hook up with him. The book makes you feel stockholm syndrome youself, and when I reached the end, I cried so hard. I knew that Ty would be caught, and yet, I hoped so badly that him and Gemma would stay together forever. This is an absolutely amazing book and it is so beautifully written!

I read this book in a day and it made me cry like I never had before. I love how connected with the land they were, living in a complete rural environment, somewhere I wish I could be living. Every little thing had a story to tell, it all seems so beautiful to me.

Right and wrong become blurred as do love and obsession in this intense, conflicting and gritty narrative written as a letter from Gemma to Ty.

I didn't want to keep reading this book after page 200 because I knew how this was going to end. I knew that if I kept reading it would break my heart. And it did.
I hate it so much that I love it.

While I liked seeing Gemma constantly thinking of ways to try to escape, and I liked the slow revelation of Ty as a peculiar but artistic nature-loving soul, I found the premise extremely hard to swallow. Nevertheless, everything that arises out of this wonky premise is easy to believe (well - maybe not the artwork?!), making this a compelling read. And despite the premise being wonky, I now fear letting my daughter out of my sight until she's at least thirty or so. Maybe thirty-five. Oh, okay - forty. Ack. !!

This book is great!! I might have felt a little odd in the beginning but as I was reading though the book, I found myself very interesed. While I was reading the book, I found myself liking Ty . He even made me cry in the end, and I don't really cry over books. If you like contemporary books. I recommend this book! :D have fun reading!!
