Burnt out by the endless days of crying children and menial tasks, and exhausted from always putting herself last, Gilly doesn't immediately consider the consequences when she's carjacked. With a knife to her throat, her first thought is that she'll finally get some rest. Someone can save her for a change. Stranded in a remote, snowbound cabin with this stranger, hours turn to days, days into weeks. As time forges a fragile bond between them, she learns her captor is not the lunatic she first believed, but a human being whose wasted life has been shaped by secrets and tragedy. Yet even as their connection begins to foster trust, Gilly must never forget he's still a man teetering on the edge.

This book has an interesting twist to it, it started out with a kidnapping, the person kidnapped, was given a chance to escape, but chose not to. As the story develops, you find yourself conflicted with whom you should root for, the kidnapper turned out to be a really nice person, caught doing something wrong. I only gave it 3 stars, because I thought the end was rushed.
