Book Summery (Via Goodreads):Eighteen-year-old Arcadia wants adventure. Living in a tiny Florida town with her dad and four-year-old brother, Cadie spends most of her time working, going to school, and taking care of her family. So when she meets two handsome cousins at a campfire party, she finally has a chance for fun. They invite her and friend to join them on a road trip, and it's just the risk she's been craving-the opportunity to escape. But what starts out as a fun, sexy journey quickly becomes dangerous when she discovers that one of them is not at all who he claims to be. One of them has deadly intentions.
Wow. Where to begin? How about the main character Cadie. Cadie is what I would consider a normal teenager. Sick of filling in the "mom" role, she decides to pursue a small road trip with two guys she just met. There were times that I felt empathy for Cadie, but this was not one of them. This was a time that I wanted to smack her upside the head and ask her 'what are you thinking?!' Trust me, there are a lot of moments like that. As far as the two guys go, you can tell that something is off, but it's hard to put your finger on exactly what. It's a part of the story that made it near impossible to set the book down.
This is a novel full of suspense that builds nicely throughout the story arc. The mixture of adventure, mystery, and romance makes a satisfying combination. I also enjoyed how Doller wrapped things up at the end. That's right, no frustrating loose ends here! I really appreciated that.
Overall, if you are looking for a good mystery with a lot of suspense and tension, look no further!
