I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

“I wasn’t even good at lying to myself anymore.”
A masked stranger saves Amber, and now she is running for her life. She grabs what little she has and heads west. The only problem, Amber doesn’t know she is now a key player in the game of life… or death.
I enjoyed how this book was written. It was very comfortable, very conversational. The plot flowed smoothly. It started a bit slow in the beginning but quickly picked up and stayed at 100 through the end.
The characters were fantastic. I loved Dot; she was the kindest, most connected, somewhat maternal figure. Amber was intelligent, a little shady, and hellbent on continuing to be a survivor.
Each character was so well defined and had such a distinct shape. The plot twist was fantastic- I was completely shocked and did not see it coming.
I enjoyed the descriptions and seeing Vegas through a less shiny lens. It was also neat seeing Stockton mentioned (near my hometown!). Overall, this was an entertaining and engaging read.
