The story is mostly about Erin, a once professional swimmer turned coach, who had to leave competition for reasons we don't find out about until late in the story (even though it is brought up ad nauseam to the point where you're just like ugh! freakin' tell me already! She's engaged to Griffin, but there's zero chemistry between them, and Erin is pretty meh about their relationship.
Enter Cooper--he's mysterious and sexy, and Erin has an immediate reaction to him that both scares her and thrills her. But wait! She's engaged... Eh, whatever, she'll just go with it and keep going to the pool in the middle of the night to see if she runs into him. She even steals his towel from the pool and has special time with her hand while lying in her bed next to her fiancé and smelling it.
This is where things get weird... you know, because the towel thing wasn't strange.
Cooper is crazy, and he kidnaps her. BUT, she has multiple chances to leave and doesn't because she's "in love with an ex-swimming secret agent with personality disorders." Yes, that sums up Cooper and the theme of this book nicely. Erin continues to make bad decisions and huge, ridiculous leaps of logic that make zero sense to anybody but her. For example, she sees a teddy bear on the floor and automatically assumes her captor has killed a child. What? Where does she get that? And speaking of captor, he can hold you captive and you would be in captivity, but you would never be in "captivation" which is throughout the book...
The twists that follow are bizarre and full of violence that I felt was only good for shock value. Griffin's later appearance made little to no sense, and I felt like the author was trying to make this elaborate, crazy twist, but all it did was have me scratching my head and thinking why?
This was a great read since I felt stumped for most of the beginning of the book since I couldn't guess as to why Erin was taken in the first place, so the need to know kept me proceeding though the book. I felt a lack of motive for Cooper since his reasoning for being the way he is, wan't brought to the forefront until later in the book. We know that he had a crappy childhood especially with his currents condition, and had endured some heinous stuff but unfortunately the book didn't delve into what made him tick so I didn't feel the passion behind his actions until later when I had that "oh, that's why" moment. I did enjoy the ending and how it brought things back full circle. I would have enjoyed this book better if I was able to see into more of Coopers years of growing up and his darker secrets.
Erin has been manipulated her whole life. Cooper kidnapped her. He is a psycho control freak, but maybe he'll end up being her best bet. Yeah... it's one of those kinds of books, filled with incredulous plot twists, but if you are up for the ride, it is a fast moving intense story, which I enjoyed.
I need more,
I need more, and I need it now.
To consumed to give this story the review it deserves at the moment. Need to come to grips that it's over and I should have read slower.
This was my first book by Rebecca Sherwin and will defiantly not be my last.
What a beautiful, complex wonderful story. I was hooked from the first page till the last, and could not put it down.
