Summary: Considering she’s a girl who calculates everything, Addie Battes knew the statistical probability of being abducted in her lifetime—too bad she never analyzed the odds of falling in love with her captor.

While stopping at a crowded rest area one summer night, seventeen-year-old Addie accidentally catches a truck hijacking in progress. Desperate to rid the crime of its only witness, one of the thieves kidnaps Addie. Yet surprisingly, when a renegade thief attempts to silence her for good, Addie is saved by the very man who abducted her. Now, forced on board a cargo ship in the middle of the ocean, Addie finds herself surrounded by international smugglers who want nothing more than to throw her overboard.

All except the artistic and intriguing Charlie Hays, whose strange protectiveness convinces Addie to trust him, even when common sense tells her otherwise. Yet, despite her doubt, and his unrelenting temper, their relationship develops into something much more. But, Charlie’s scorned colleague has stowed away, and as he seeks revenge against his coworker, Addie and Charlie are forced to put their new love—and lives—at risk.

Short Review: 

I really loved Wanted. It was a strange situation that Addie--she was kidnapped and then fell in love with her captor. I was stuck between screaming that Addie and Charlie needed to be together and that they shouldn't because it was just weird to fall in love with the man who kidnapped you. But in the end, I fell just as much in love with Charlie as Addie did. I really wish that there were more to this book. I loved all the characters, even Reid, who wasn't very nice. And Polo was just so adorable. I would love to read more about the other characters. Ben is an interesting character, he's kind of enigmatic. But yeah, I love love LOVED this book!
