I'm not sure what to say about this book, because I am so indifferent about it. Nothing really stood out about this book to make it interesting so I just kind of kept up with the book in order to finish it. 

Rachel is an artist in Philly and the past year has been especially tough for her. It only just start from being stalked one of her art students. It escalades into Rachel shooting Kyle in self defense, ending in his death. As if that wasn't bad enough, now they're accusing her of murder. Luckily she's acquitted and returns back to her hometown in Texas to pick up what was left of her life. 

How can she move on with her life when she move on and restart her life, when she's still getting threatening phone calls from family members of the stalker she shot. She meets a handsome man Zeke Pike who she seems to have an instant connection with but will he be willing to be a part of her hectic life. 

When I read over the synopsis I think this book sounds so interesting and fun. A young woman being followed by a stalker she eventually ends up killing and being charged with his murder. Even though she's acquitted of his murder, she still has the problem of being sued in civil court for the wrongful death. Instead I found it to be overwhelming with conflict. It seems everyone is out to get Rachel and Zeke. 

Once I opened the book, I realized every bad guy that can possibly be written about is being sent after Rachel and/or Zeke. She can't get a hold of her hectic life. I wish Rachel would have been more independent and strong. Hiding from all her problems and just kind of running away from it all, hoping it will all go away, seemed like she should have grown some balls and stood up for herself. At least in a more proactive kind of way. She hides from everyone including her psychologist, despite the fact that there are people out there who want to help her. 

But for the zero cost, I can't be too surprised with this book. I give this book a rating of 2/5.
