Beth witnessed a shooting on a train that crashed. She doesn’t remember anything from the accident, but has terrifying nightmares about being hunted and shot at. Daniel, a cop/ex-cop, was also on the train and is now protecting her. Someone wants her dead and Daniel moves her around to keep her hidden and away from the bad guys.

This story started out strong with a lot of suspense and action. Unfortunately, that is the best part about the entire book. Beth’s life is in danger and a sexy agent swoops in to protect her after she rides a train to go back to the scene of the event. Even though she has a hard time accepting help, they go on the run when someone shoots at Beth while she is on the second train ride. Daniel and Beth jump from the moving train and go to a safe house where they are found. They keep moving from place to place and are stalked and found throughout the process. There is a lot of sexual tension between the two, but even that part of the story falls flat. There is so much potential for things to get exciting, but it drags on for so long that it is difficult to care who is after them, if they get together, and if they survive. Honestly, it’s not a horrible book, and could be a lot better with some work.
