Sum It Up! This is a good and angsty romance that will keep you on your heels.

For college student Emily Sheppard, the thought of spending a summer alone in New York is much more preferable than spending it in France with her parents. Just completing her freshman year at Callister University, Emily faces a quiet summer in the city slums, supporting herself by working at the campus library. During one of her jogs through the nearby cemetery while visiting her brother Bill's grave, Emily witnesses a brutal killing-and then she blacks out. When Emily regains consciousness, she realizes she's been kidnapped by a young crime boss and his gang. She is hurled into a secret underworld, wondering why she is still alive and for how long.
Held captive in rural Vermont, she tries to make sense of her situation and what it means. While uncovering secrets about her brother and his untimely death, Emily falls in love with her very rich and very dangerous captor, twenty-six year- old Cameron. She understands it's a forbidden love and one that won't allow her to return to her previous life. But love may not be enough to save Emily when no one even knows she is missing.(Goodreads)
Why has it taken me so long to read this book?! After hearing all the praise over Crow’s Row I now know why everyone is patiently waiting for the next installment. Hockley delivers a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat as each chapter leads to the next in anticipation of what will happen to Emily and Cameron!
Emily is living a boring life with a string of boyfriends she cannot seem to go to the next level with, trying her hardest to keep her scholarship and living in a small rundown house with 6 other students. As she ends up meeting this quiet boy by coincidence she keeps going to his neighborhood in hopes of seeing him again but also ends up seeing more then she bargained for, a shooting. As she ends up having to “stay” with the boy who grabbed her interest for her own safety Emily and Cameron end up falling for each other and boy… are there some secrets he has been keeping from her. This is a good and angsty romance that will keep you on your heels and lots of drama that at times you don’t know who you can trust or who will make it out alive.

"You'll probably die if you stay with me,' he told me.
'Then I'm dead either way, because I won't survive without you.”

By the end I was left with tears as the story takes a surprising turn and leaves us with a cliffhanger that will have you nipping at your nails in anticipation of the next installment!
