{NA Review} Ransom (Ransom Brothers #1) by Rachel Schurig

{NA Review} Ransom (Ransom Brothers #1) by Rachel Schurig

Ransom (Ransom Brothers, #1)
Daisy Harris has no reason to suspect that her day will be any different than usual. She’ll go to class, alone. She won’t speak or make eye contact. She’ll spend her entire day doing her best to go completely unnoticed. That’s what life is like for Daisy now—an endless cycle of loneliness and fear. A life lived hiding behind the walls she so faithfully maintains.

Then she sees it. A magazine, left behind in class. A simple picture—just his face. And it changes everything.

It’s been a year since she’s seen Daltrey Ransome. A year since he and his brothers left town to pursue their dreams of rock and roll superstardom. A year since he left Daisy behind—left her to watch as everything she knew crumbled around her. She’s been running from Daltrey ever since, desperate to keep her secret.

But she can’t run anymore. And now that Daltrey has found her—the girl he’s loved his entire life, the girl he’d give up everything for—he’s determined never to let her go again.

**The first book in a brand new series from USA Today bestselling author Rachel Schurig. This New Adult Contemporary Romance novel is a complete story with no cliffhanger.**(Blurb via Goodreads)

{Rating} 4/5 -- I really liked it!

"What's your name?" (page 1, line 1)
Ransom is the second book I've read by Rachel Schurig, my review of Escape in You is here. She has a way with intense love stories and wonderful but damaged characters who go through a lot but come out stronger on the other side.

I was immediately engaged by the storyline and invested in the characters. I saw that something terrible had happened to Daisy but the details are slowly revealed and kept me turning the pages. I had to know about these characters, about what happened to them, and if Daisy and Daltrey would ever confess their feelings.

I loved the characters. Daisy and Daltrey are imperfect, scarred, scared, brave, they screw up big time, they make little mistakes, and they have a lot to learn and they did, they changed and grew throughout the book. The cast of secondary characters are just as fabulous, the other Ransome boys and awesome friends Paige and Karen. Next installment in the Ransom Brothers series please!
