Can I just start out this review with simply saying, "LOVED IT!" in that annoying sing-songy voice that people use when they just don't know what else to say.

In real life, Grace and I would be friends. She is curious and smart and a fighter. She is sweet and vulnerable, but doesn't want to show it. She wants to connect with people, but is good by herself. She has the need to get out and be in nature. She loves animals and even has had a pet bear as a child. And because of all of this, she also attracts danger.

Then she meets a stranger in her woods who is attractive and mysterious and she hates to admit, she takes a liking to him. The more she hangs out with him, the more she likes him too. Darn, as she has learned to like her solitary life. Mostly she is alone because she refuses to believe her dad is dead and died in a accident. She feels he is still out there somewhere and will do anything to find out the truth. But the truth can hurt, deeply.

I got this book from Netgalley and am excited to realize Book 2, Uncontrollable, is already out ready to be read!!

Summary -
Book 2 Uncontrollable is also now available!
Book 3 is scheduled for Summer 2013.

16-year-old Grace has lived in the Smokies all her life, patrolling with her forest ranger father who taught her about wildlife, tracking, and wilderness survival.

When her dad goes missing on a routine patrol, Grace refuses to believe he’s dead and fights the town authorities, tribal officials, and nature to find him.

One day, while out tracking clues, Grace is rescued from danger by Mo, a hot guy with an intoxicating accent and a secret. As her feelings between him and her ex-boyfriend get muddled, Grace travels deep into the wilderness to escape and find her father.

Along the way, Grace learns terrible secrets that sever relationships and lives. Soon she’s enmeshed in a web of conspiracy, deception, and murder. And it’s going to take a lot more than a compass and a motorcycle (named Lucifer) for this kick-butting heroine to save everything she loves.

I love books like this...minus the murder part. But if you like it I'm going to give it a try

also..does it have a finite ending, or does it leaving you waiting for a part two? Unless there is a complete ending I get pretty pissed off.
