Eight years can disappear in an instant... But their connection runs deeper than ever.
One look at Katie Watts, and Ethan is fifteen again - the boy who risked everything to save a terrified girl from her twisted kidnapper. Now Katie is grown-up - beautiful, composed and telling her story to the world. Ethan was once her guardian angel - and he wants to be sure that she's still safe.
When they reconnect, it's as different people - but Ethan wants Katie every bit as much as she wants him. Yet all he can do is savour every moment they're together until she uncovers who he really is. Because her kidnapper - a convicted serial killer - is also Ethan's father.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Monica Murphy describes this novel as “unconventional”—not surprising, given she wrote much of it while listening to the song of the same name by the Australian band INXS. This first instalment in a two-part plot is also edgy, high wire–tense and steamy, blending all the best parts of mystery and romance. The two central characters, whose lives have been shattered by a kidnapping, draw us into their complex, emotional worlds, ultimately leaving us on a cliffhanger that points straight to the sequel.
