Stolen by Lucy Christopher

Stolen by Lucy Christopher
299 pages

Incredible book! It is written in first person present tense, so at first I had a hard time getting into it. But quickly Christopher pulls you into the story and  you feel like you are sitting in the ramshackle building in the middle of the Australian desert right along with Gemma.  I thought the storyline was very realistic, as well as Gemma's reactions towards her kidnapping, and her curiosities about her kidnapper.

(from jacket cover)

You saw me before I saw you.
A girl: Gemma, at the airport, on her way to a family vacation.
You had that look in your eyes.
A guy: Ty, rugged, tan, too old, oddly familiar, eyes blue as ice.
Like you wanted me.
She steps away. for just a second. He pays for her drink. And drugs it.
Wanted me for a long time.
He takes her, before she even knows what's happening.
 To sand and heat.
To emptiness and isolation.
To nowhere.
 And expects her to love him.
Written as a letter from a victim to her captor, this is Gemma's desperate story o survival. Ty has Stolen her body. Against every instinct screaming inside her, will he also steal Gemma's heart?
