Charlotte Ferro is about to jump.

Yet nothing ruins a perfectly good suicide attempt worse than a handsome do-gooder. After William O’Reilly convinces her to take one last ride with him, Charlotte finds herself forgetting about her own problems and enjoying a world of which she never dreamed.

Now addicted to the rush of fast cars and cool criminals, Charlotte finds herself leaning less towards the ledge and more toward the arms of her savior. But with reasons of his own for keeping Charlotte safe from herself, William is reluctant to involve her in his criminal undertakings. Will his career choice keep them apart? Will Charlotte’s painful past?

A native of New Jersey and lifelong nerd, Amanda Lance recently completed her Master in Liberal Arts at Thomas Edison State College after her BA in English Literature and AFA in creative writing. As an avid reader of all genres, some of her favorite authors include Hemingway, Marquis de Sade, Stevenson, Bukowski and Radcliffe.
When she isn’t writing or reading, Amanda can found indulging in film noir or hiking with her other half and their extremely spoiled dog. She is obsessively working on her next book and trying to tame her caffeine addiction.

4 out of 5 stars

The book started of intense with the main character about to jump off a bridge to end her life but then William "Do-gooder" as she likes to call him, stops her. This is where their journey starts. Charlotte and William take a ride like literally a ride. They go to these races that finally bring something back into Charlotte's life. William feels the need to keep Charlotte alive and safe so he makes it his mission to be after her. He always asks her are you with me Jumper and I think that it is so sweet that he is looking after Charlotte even though she is a complete stranger. There is just something about William's protectiveness that automatically makes you like him. Their banter in the beginning is really great to because you can tell that even though Charlotte is down she can still be funny and witty. What Wiliam does though, will make you question how Charlotte will react so read the book to find out! What I found a little bit weak in the book was how the book was slow sometimes and then went by really quickly because it went through a certain time too fast. I really needed more of an ending too because I needed to know more about what William and Charlotte were doing with there lives. The beginning really had me interesting but I think the rest of the book was ok. I think it needed a little something more towards the end like more detail to understand more about what was going on. Other than that it was an overall good book.
