Ransom by Rachel Schurig
Series: Ransom Brothers #1
Published by Rachel Schurig on April 27, 2014
Genres: Contemporary Romance, Young Adult
**The first book in a brand new series from USA Today bestselling author Rachel Schurig. This New Adult Contemporary Romance novel is a complete story with no cliffhanger.**
Daisy Harris has no reason to suspect that her day will be any different than usual. She’ll go to class, alone. She won’t speak or make eye contact. She’ll spend her entire day doing her best to go completely unnoticed. That’s what life is like for Daisy now—an endless cycle of loneliness and fear. A life lived hiding behind the walls she so faithfully maintains.
Then she sees it. A magazine, left behind in class. A simple picture—just his face. And it changes everything.
It’s been a year since she’s seen Daltrey Ransome. A year since he and his brothers left town to pursue their dreams of rock and roll superstardom. A year since he left Daisy behind—left her to watch as everything she knew crumbled around her. She’s been running from Daltrey ever since, desperate to keep her secret.
But she can’t run anymore. And now that Daltrey has found her—the girl he’s loved his entire life, the girl he’d give up everything for—he’s determined never to let her go again.
Make sure you have a few tissues near you. You may need them periodically.
I fell in love with Rachel’s stories with the Three Girls series. Rachel did not disappoint with Ransom. I read it cover to cover (digitally) in one sitting last night. And by last night, I mean well after I should have been sleeping. I shut off all electronics at 3 this morning. I would have written this review when I finished the book but I needed to get my emotions in check first…and find tissues.
I may not be fresh out of high school but there were still several things an almost 33 year old could relate to that made me enjoy the story so much more. Rock stars, touring with the band, living in hotel rooms, hours in a vehicle to get to the next gig, setting up and tearing down equipment and merch on a smaller scale. Broken hearts, finding love, making new friends, losing old friends, wanting to run away and hide.
Rachel, if you stumble upon this post, thank you. Thank you again for the opportunity to read such an amazing book. I can not wait for book 2!!
