Ransom (Ransom Brothers #1)-Rachel Schurig

**The first book in a brand new series from USA Today bestselling author Rachel Schurig. This New Adult Contemporary Romance novel is a complete story with no cliffhanger.**

Daisy Harris has no reason to suspect that her day will be any different than usual. She’ll go to class, alone. She won’t speak or make eye contact. She’ll spend her entire day doing her best to go completely unnoticed. That’s what life is like for Daisy now—an endless cycle of loneliness and fear. A life lived hiding behind the walls she so faithfully maintains.

Then she sees it. A magazine, left behind in class. A simple picture—just his face. And it changes everything.

It’s been a year since she’s seen Daltrey Ransome. A year since he and his brothers left town to pursue their dreams of rock and roll superstardom. A year since he left Daisy behind—left her to watch as everything she knew crumbled around her. She’s been running from Daltrey ever since, desperate to keep her secret.

But she can’t run anymore. And now that Daltrey has found her—the girl he’s loved his entire life, the girl he’d give up everything for—he’s determined never to let her go again.

This book had me gripped from the start, I loved the friendship that Daltrey and Daisy had for so many years and the love that went from child hood into adults was just beautiful.

Ransom also delves into the horrendous effects bullying has on a person and how the internet and social media is used as a weapon to hurt people. The effects of such bulling equaling to panic attacks, broken friendships and suicide attempts.

Apart from the bullying issues covered in this book Rachel also covers all manor of relationships, weather it’s parental, romantic, friendship and how they all effect each other in a persons life. Rachel has written all these issues with grace and sensitively.

Ransom is filled with emotion, I love how strong Daltrey and Daisy’s friendship is, when Daltrey is at the tattoo parlour when he reminisces a childhood memory he had with Daisy, wow that was one of my favourite scenes.

This book isn’t your usual rocker bad boy read, it’s not full of drug use and never ending women, there is more to it than that. It’s the relationship between the brothers, the connection between friends and a timeless love. Just beautiful to read.
