Ricki’s dad has never been there for her. He’s a bounty hunter who spends his time chasing parole evaders—also known as “skips”—all over the country. But now since Ricki’s mom ran off, Ricki finds herself an unwilling passenger in a front-row seat to her father’s dangerous lifestyle.
Ricki’s feelings get even more confused when her dad starts chasing seventeen-year-old Ian Burnham. She finds herself unavoidably attracted to the dark-eyed felon who seems eager to get acquainted. But Ricki thinks she’s ever in control—the perfect manipulator. Little does she know that Ian isn’t playing their game by her rules.
I think the whole premise of this book sounds interesting. I mean a bounty hunter whose daughter falls in love the with person he is hunting, it isn't something I've ever read in the YA genre and I think it is different enough from the Stephanie Plum series that I won't compare the two books. Also I really like that cover with the handcuff and font, its simplistic but I think it says a lot. So what are you Waiting on this Wednesday?!
