Clay ran from his family, his career. From every dream he ever had. He ran until he crashed.   Andi escaped the screams, the fists. The pain that knocked her down. She ran until she was thrown.   Brought together by a world of darkness and deceit, all they have is each other. Freedom is what they want. Though it comes with a price.   Because the second they stop running, they'll drown.


Before anything else, let me just say that this is another case of “it’s not you, it’s me” sadly. I honestly don’t know what happened. While Gia is a new-to-me author, Marni isn’t. I’ve highly enjoyed Marni’s previous works. So I’m thinking this is just me.

It’s a good story, with lots of good source of angst, suspense and all kinds of hotness. The h (eek, I don’t even remember her name... *reads blurb* oh yes, Andi), running away from a terrible situation and the H, Clay, running away from his present as well. Despite all the ugliness in their lives, they realized they have each other. They ran, they tried, they failed, they succeeded but at a high price, and they fixed things.

Both characters are layered but I felt detached from them and all the events happening in their lives. Rather than being immersed in the scenes, it felt like seeing things from a bird’s eye view. Tried as I could but sadly, the feelings stayed til the end.

Looking at GR reviews, I’m in the minority, and I’m glad I am.
