While reporting on a fire, Montana TV journalist Elizabeth Kramer is abducted—and saved only by the heroics of rival reporter Zachery Beck. But her kidnapper returns, taunting her, luring her to danger and making her relive a past she never put to rest. Elizabeth doesn't like asking for help, but this time she can't stay alone and stay alive. And Zach knows how to evade danger. When tragedy thrust him into the public eye, he changed his identity to remain hidden. Protecting Elizabeth means stepping out of the shadows…but as her stalker closes in for a deadly showdown, it's a risk Zach has to take.
It was an ok book. Elizabeth and Zach have a fun rivalry going on. Each tries to scoop the other in reporting stories but both have pasts that haunt them. I liked the way they didn't just blurt out their secrets to each other but it came naturally with their developing friendship. Elizabeth's inability to trust men was an issue that was completely believable with what all had happened to her and I felt terrible for her.
Zach wasn't a beefy, stocky man but he can fight! I loved that he had a conscience and did what he thought was right without thinking about the harm that could come to him. He was a strong man. I liked the story line and the characters. My only issue with the book was with the constant abduction scenes. It got to be too much and very repetitive. They were well written but there were just too many of the actual abductions and then the escape/recapture for it to feel realistic.
The book was a 3/5 for me.
