Rush keeps it fresh with this fast-paced novel, full of last-minute surprises and unexpected twists. Anna is complex, and the whole cast is well rounded. The mysteries laced throughout the action add suspense, making the moments of romance even hotter.

Anna’s father has always worked for the Branch, in his hidden basement lab, experimenting on the four boys there: Trev, Nick, Cas and Sam. Over the years, Anna has befriended the boys and fallen in love with Sam. When the Branch decides to end the experiments, Sam stages an escape and Anna ends up on the run, too. As they struggle to solve the puzzle of their pasts before the Branch finds and eliminates them, a sudden betrayal slaps them in the face.
