Blurb: What if your family had a big secret . . . a life changing secret. My dad, the bigwig CIA agent, was always on the run, whether he was being chased or doing the chasing. I missed him. Then my mom passed away, and my sister was murdered. I turned my solitude to strength because the alternative was too bleak.
But my luck seemed to turn: I met Tango. And while I want him more than I’ve ever wanted anything in my twenty-two years, danger lurks around every corner and I simply can’t take the chance of it finding me. But his tattoos, his smell, his darkness, and his body— that marine has taken over my every thought. But, what if he too isn’t what I think? A ticking time bomb isn’t going to leave me much time to waver. Even the bravest person can be in need of a miracle.
Before she was gone, my mom warned me to know everyone and trust no one. But what was I supposed to do when I found out I am the one not to be trusted? Turns out, I was always the bait in this conspiracy.
At first I was a bit doubting whether I’d like a book, which deals with war and thriller motifs as I haven’t read books like that before, but I am glad I went for it, because those aspects weren’t that serious and the story kept me reading and wanting to know what will happen next.
Cali has lost everything and she has been on the run for the past three years. Where ever she goes or who ever she meets, her mothers words are always on her mind: Know everyone. Trust no one”. She doesn’t stay for long in any place and moves a lot. When she meets Tango, she doesn’t trust him at first, how could she? The more time they spend together, the more they open up to each other and it’s harder and harder to not fall for one another. The story takes unexpected turns towards the end and it was solved nicely, even though it’s actually difficult to understand Cali’s parents and their decisions they made without considering their daughter’s feelings.
I really liked the story, actually even more than I’d expected.
