Can true love be built on lies? A teen on the run seeks relief and redemption in this gripping, romantic read.

Leah Kurtz has finally found a place to call home, a town where she and baby Addy can live in peace, far from the drug-infested place she grew up. Chris is one of the best parts of her new life, the only person who’s ever made her feel safe. And now that she’s found him, there’s no way she can tell the truth:

Her real name is Faith, not Leah. She’s seventeen, not nineteen. And the baby isn’t hers—Faith kidnapped her.

Faith’s history catches up with her when a cop starts asking questions and Chris’s aunt spots her picture in the newspaper. She knows it’s time to run again, but if Faith leaves, she’ll lose Chris. If Chris is in love with a lie, though, did Faith ever really have him in the first place?


If there was ever a time to baby-nap, and by baby nap (I mean baby abduction *shudder*) this was one of those. It’s a tough subject to tackle, and no, I would not have made Faith’s choices in my own mind/life situation but in hers…maybe. Probably. Well done Jamie Blair. You’ve written a unique, compelling, page turner that managed to break my heart and create beautiful love story in the process. Also, the suspense element of constantly being on edge, wondering when she’d be found out, it was consistent, a bomb resting on every page ticking away. Can’t wait to read another book from this author.
