Chloe Pierce was taught to take care of everyone. The problem with that was there was no one to care for her. Now that her go-to person is gone, she’s left floundering. She’s made rash decisions, and is a bit over the top, but that’s her. She needs someone who understands that and will help her realize that she doesn’t need to be watcher but the watched.
Opposites attract they say. Well, you can’t get any more opposite than Judge Oakley and Chloe Pierce. From the first moment he sees Chloe surrounded by boxes and boxes of boots, running his workers all around, he knew she was gonna be trouble. Technically he was right, but just not in the way he thought.
These two were a blast to watch. As with all Kristen Ashley books, there’s a fair amount of drama and emotions swirling around. I mean heck, from the first moment she arrived on scene, in After the Climb, you knew she was spitfire with more going on inside than she was revealing. I truly look forward to reading more about all of them.

It’s been so long since I’ve read a book that stressed me out this much, at the same time tugging at my heartstrings. Reading a book based on real people and real events has a way of doing that.
This book was a story of survival and friendship. I’m glad I didn’t Google Bob Inama before I read this. I probably would’ve been crying the entire time. Between the beatings he received in the jail, and not knowing if today is your last day on this world, I’m surprised I made it through. He is definitely one of the strongest people I’ve ever read about.
I know Luisa Voight wasn’t a real person, but based on real people almost hits harder. There were people who cared so much that they’d risk their own lives in order to smuggle others out. Those were true heroes.
It was a long and brutal ordeal but Bob held tight to his faith, when all other things let him down, and somehow got through this and found his way home.
From the moment I started this book I couldn’t put it down. I was riveted by the landscape and the realness of the story. I mean, it WAS real, but you know what I mean. And I pretty much read the last few chapters with tears in my eyes. These are the type of books I crave. I’m so happy I took a chance on this.
