The meter is running…

One night as Rose Crawford steps out of a bar, she gives no second thought to lifting her hand to signal for a cab. After all, it’s the responsible thing to do.

A common occurrence. 

Far safer than walking several blocks, alone, in the dark.

A familiar-looking yellow taxi with black, faux-leather seats, running meter on the dash, and a smiling driver pulls up to the curb.

Rose slides in. Gives the driver her address…

But she never reaches her destination.

Instead, she finds herself captive, at the will of a man who isn’t a driver, but a bona fide psychopath.

Trapped in a taxi she can’t escape, Rose begins to panic. As the miles between her and safety grow, hope dwindles. It isn’t until someone else joins her in captivity that her spark of hope is rekindled.

Derek is strong, capable, and surely together they can fight their way to freedom.

Then Rose finds out exactly why she’s been driven into hell. Derek may be an unwilling captive, but he isn’t going to help her.

In fact, he’s there to do the exact opposite.

Rose went out for a night with her friends. Feeling a little tipsy, she grabs a taxi for her ride home to start her early day tomorrow. But that’s not how her night ends. Rose is terrified to find out that she’s being taken captive. She is chained up with no idea what is going on. All of sudden, someone else is chained up with her and shockingly she knows him. Derek is a doctor at the hospital and hopefully he can help them get out of this mess. But he might not be there to help her at all. Perhaps he has other plans altogether.

“They’d knocked him out, too.

Just like they’d done to me.

I wondered if the poor guy was someone who’d mistakenly gotten into the back of the wrong cab and was now the number two candidate for the twelve o’clock news.

Naturally, I was the number one candidate.

I’d been kidnapped longer. And I was the lady. Ladies first.”

Argh…this story! I kept getting a Stephen King vibe when I was reading because I felt like there would be horror twist after twist. What I loved was all of the ups and downs I felt as Rose goes through her journey being held and feeling like she had an ally when Derek shows up. This was a good storyline in the sense that it made you think about what choices you would make in similar circumstances. I don’t know if I would be like Rose although I liked where she ended up. This book was an excellent mixture of mystery, suspense and romance. My absolute favorite type of read. I am so freaked out right now because I only take cabs when I go on a trip by myself and now…is that stranger going to abduct me? This is going to stay in my head for a while.

I hate to admit this was my first book in the Take It Off series. But that just means that I can go back and read more. The more books I read by Cambria, the more I really like her writing style and can’t wait to read the hash tag series as well.
