Crazy how eight years can disappear in an instant. One look at Katie Watts, and I m a fifteen-year-old again the one who risked everything to save a terrified girl from her twisted kidnapper. She s grown-up now beautiful, quiet, composed and telling her story to the world. A story that involves me in more ways than you can imagine. She used to call me her guardian angel. Sure, I risked my life, but she was worth dying for.
I need to make contact with her. Just to ensure that she s safe.
Somehow we reconnect. We become friends . . . but I want more. I want to make her mine. And she wants me too. Does she know who I am? Has she figured me out? Not yet. But she will. In the meantime, I need to make sure that whatever hold that animal had on her is gone.
So, yeah, I m stealing these moments with her. Savoring them. Knowing, dreading, that she ll soon find out who I really am. And everything "will" fall apart. All because of that twisted, perverted monster sitting on death row. Her kidnapper. A convicted serial killer.

Murphys uneven contemporary romance relies on the overused device of alternating points of view. The perspective swings dizzily among Katherine Watts (both at age 12, when she is kidnapped, and at age 21, when she recalls her ordeal); Ethan Williams, a man whos obsessed with 21-year-old Katherine; and 15-year-old Will Monroe, who rescued 12-year-old Katie from certain death at the hands of her abductor. The technique might have worked better if all the voices were speaking from their own present times. Instead, the characters younger selves are merely recollections of the past by Katherine and Ethan/Will, who changed his name to protect himself from a miserable family history. That aside, the premise and the follow-through do make for an intriguing concept: Ethan manipulates vulnerable, clueless Katherine into falling in love with him by exploiting their inescapable childhood bond. Murphy imbues these characters with genuineness and plausibility, and even readers who dont love the structure of this story will look forward to the promised sequel. Agent: Kimberly A.
