A bit of a damsel in distress, Hanna, needs to be rescued story, but the rescuer is her grandfather’s golden retriever, Bella, who starts the book out with a bang by rescuing her from a getting hit by a car. This sets off a bit of an adventure as Hanna tries to avoid her crazy stalker ex-boyfriend with the help of Blake, the son of a friend of the family and a private investigator on vacation.
This had the potential to be a really amazing story, but Hanna wasn’t what I needed her to be. She was too headstrong and unwilling to take the advice of the experts who trying to protect her. Putting herself in danger and staying by herself even though she knew her ex was looking for her and had found her several times already.
Blake is also trying to avoid an ex, but for very different reasons. She cheated on him but his family is determined to help her win him back. Now I really don’t like his family at all, and Hanna’s family was sort of in the same area with their feelings towards Hanna’s ex. Everyone was just not very good. Blake’s ex quicky notices his developing feelings for Hanna and uses his family to make it look like they are happily together still, but Hanna never really questions it or looks beyond the surface.
While in the end Hanna stood up for herself and started becoming the intelligent and self-sufficient woman I feel like she should have been the whole time, it was too little too late.
