For Addie Battes and Charlie Hays, a couple who defied all odds, life on land should be a breeze - except, for the fact that their newest challenge may include life, without each other... To everyone else it looks like she's leaving for college, but for Addie Battes, it's much more. She and her kidnapper Charlie Hays have found a way to be together and elude authorities. Yet fairytale romances aside; life isn't easy with schoolwork, roommates, and meddling FBI agents.
Considering she's a girl who calculates everything, Addie Battes knew the statistical probability of being abducted in her lifetime - too bad she never analyzed the odds of falling in love with her captor. While stopping at a crowded rest area one summer night, seventeen-year-old Addie accidentally catches a truck hijacking in progress. Desperate to rid the crime of its only witness, one of the thieves kidnaps Addie. Yet surprisingly, when a renegade thief attempts to silence her for good, Addie is saved by the very man who abducted her.
