Publisher's Summary

A rural country road. No cell signal for miles. A terrifying game of cat-and-mouse.

By the time Laura and Olivia notice the headlights tailing them through the hills, it’s too late. What seems at first like a case of road rage quickly unfolds into a heart-pounding chase—and a battle for survival.

Who are the men in the truck? What do they want? And can Laura and Olivia outrun and outsmart them long enough to call for help, even if it means taking their chances in the hills on foot?

As their situation grows more perilous, the girls realize that the real terror has only just begun. But flight won’t save them from their pursuers. If they’re going to make it home alive, they'll have to fight.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

The narration ruined the experience

Unfortunately I didn't get very far with this book due to the cringy narration. One of the characters, who is supposed to be an adult sounded like a whiny child and I kept losing focus on the plot.
To do the author and the book justice, I'll read it myself instead. It would be terrific if Audible could take on some of this feedback (as others have also noted) and do better when booking narrators.

7 hours I'll never get back

I listened to the entire book simply because I'd paid for it, but Laura's voice is like nails down a chalkboard. the story was ok, but the characters did things that a normal person wouldn't do. ok for some but not my kind of book.

finished it in one day!

it took me some time to get used to the narrator, I wasn't a huge fan of how she did the voices, but once you get used to it, the story was amazing! I NEEDED to know what happened next. it had me guessing, and it also had shock moments!

I will be reaching for more of these authors' books for sure! I stumbled across this one, I was just looking for a short book to read at work today, but I didn't expect to love it!

Gripping!

Really good read. If I could I would have read it in one go but I guess in a way it was good that I couldn’t because it kept the suspense alive!

Couldn’t stop listening

Never have I found an audiobook that I literally binged like this. I couldn’t stop listening-I wanted to see what would happen!
Incredible story, terrible narration.
Her voice was so unenthusiastic when acting the protagonist, irritating when doing the best friends parts and nasally when doing the male voices. Just terrible to listen to, such a shame.

Hard to Listen

Book might be good, I’ll read a hard copy. Listening to it is very hard. The narration is horrible, the voice is just not what I expected.

Never do I trust Tik Tok again for book recommendations

Meh …. This was underwhelming. So many people said on Tik Tok that they would give their 1st born to read this again. It’s a young adult, boring, same ole same ole plot. Teen girls kidnapped, teen girls escape. Not mindblowing moments, no “just wait” till you get to the end. Save your credit for something with substance.

SKIP IT

This book was a non starter. It had potential but never brought the suspense. I don’t know if it was the writing or narration but the main character was SO ANNOYING. All of her REPETITIVE internal dialogue was mind numbing.

Not up to par .


Slow…but a decent premise. The usual bad decisions by a protagonist but the biggest issues are the lack of editing and the narrator.

The car is a Volvo. We get it. For the first 8 chapters they never, ever referred to it as “the car,” “a car,” “it,” the vehicle,” or any other noun. Every few words led to “the Volvo.” It got annoying.
Then to describe a shattered windshield as a hematoma or ridiculous. That’s not what a hematoma looks like. Go with the usual “spider web” and be done with it.
Next up is the misuse of the pronoun “I.” Repeatedly, the phrase “between Laura and I” was used or something similar. Someone needs to reach this author AND editor that the word “me” is perfectly legitimate. I do have to give credit to the fact that the author did manage to use “lie” and “lay” correctly as well as “further” and “farther. “
Now for the narrator. The word “recognize” was pronounced “reconnized” more than once. Not to be outdone, the word “peripheral” was pronounced “periphreal” also more than once.

Please find a new editor.

Not great

Narration was terrible. I would have to turn off and listen in spurts because it was so bad. Story was just ok. Not an edge of the seat "page" turner. Would not recommend.

I have to be honest

This book wouldn’t be terrible on hard copy. The narrator destroyed this story. I had to force myself to finish it-just not amazing and extremely predictable.

The readers voice is awful

The story was just okay, the twists were not really twists but that voice! Listen to this review and all the others about the readers voice, simply awful. I couldn’t imagine a girl in trouble, only a girl who just rolled out of bed and was still sleepy. It was too much to recover a decent story out of this mediocre at best.

That was painful

The narrator was bad, very monotone and the second girl she tried to portray was hideous. I didn’t feel there was a story at all. Wish I didn’t spend $12 on this book. I would definitely not recommend it.

How did this get good reviews?

I absolutely couldn’t listen to it…painful narration. Just very stiff and awkward to the point of giving me second hand embarrassment. I was disappointed because I’ve heard great things about the story itself but couldn’t get through more than a quarter of the way through.

A Must Listen

One of the best thrillers I’ve read/listened to in a while! Would have sounded even better if same narrator did this as in “Ask for Andrea” but it’s still a good listen. Narrator does a good job - nothing against her.

Terrific! It ad me on the edge of my seat.

What a brilliant story! I wish I could hear it again for the first time. The narration sounded as if it was coming from the girl it was about. Thanks.

Wish I’d read it - narrator sounds bored

This was a well written book with lots of suspense but the narrator really just sounds bored. Which ruins it. So if you get the chance, read it instead

A twist

The build-up whilst driving down the highways was intense. I love the twist in senior sophomore year. Perhaps this can turn it into a movie.

I just don’t get the hype

I seen this recommended on booktok and it sounded good but I was really disappointed. The first like 2 hours of it are just drive away! No they are going to get us! Over and over. It just felt dragged out. Had potential but it just wasn’t right.

If you like a tense story with lots of twists and turns, this is great.
The characters were well portrayed and you are really willing for the girls to survive. Best thriller I have read/ heard in a while

Be better to get this one in print!

Where the story of this was great - it was fast-paced and thrilling, the performance side really did not keep up! The performer sounded bored, and did not do the book justice at all.

I think if I could do this one over, I'd get it in print and read it to get the full impact.
