For the perfect love, what would you be willing to lose?
It’s been a shattering year for seventeen-year-old Zoe, who’s still reeling from her father's shockingly sudden death in a caving accident and her neighbors’ mysterious disappearance from their own home. Then on a terrifying sub-zero, blizzardy night in Montana, she and her brother are brutally attacked in a cabin in the woods—only to be rescued by a mysterious bounty hunter they call X.
X is no ordinary bounty hunter. He is from a hell called the Lowlands, sent to claim the soul of Zoe’s evil attacker and others like him. X is forbidden from revealing himself to anyone other than his prey, but he casts aside the Lowlands’ rules for Zoe. As they learn more about their colliding worlds, they begin to question the past, their fate, and their future.
This book captured me from page one. I was deeply intrigued by the characters and also by the relationship between X and Zoe. I loved both of them and wanted to see where the story went. I was unaware of that this was the start to a series so I was expecting a happy ending and that was not what I got. But I am so excited to see where book two goes. I loved all the mystery the filled this novel and I was never sure what the characters were going to do. I felt like this story did have elements of insta-love but I quickly became invested in the characters. It was super fast pace read that I did not want to put down.
