Everything Emma Thompson owns fits in a suitcase she moves from one roach infested motel to another. She and Jake, her five year old son who can see the future, are running from the men intent on taking him. Emma will do anything to protect him even when it means accepting the help of a stranger named Will. Jake insists she needs Will, but Emma’s never needed help before. And even though she’s learned to trust her son, it doesn’t mean she trusts Will. Mercenary Will Davenport lives in the moment. Hauling Emma to South Dakota should have been an easy job, but his employer neglected to tell him about Emma’s freaky son and the gunmen hot on her trail. Instinct tells him this job is trouble, but nothing can prepare him for Jake’s proclamation that Will is The Chosen One, who must protect Emma from the men hunting her power. A power she doesn't know she has. Will protects Emma and Jake on a cross-country chase from the men pursuing them, while struggling with memories from his past, his apprehension of Jake, and his growing attraction to Emma. Will’s overwhelming urge to protect Emma surprises him, especially since it has nothing to do with his paycheck and possibly everything to do with the tattoo Jake branded on his arm. Rich and powerful men are desperate to capture Emma, and Will must discover why before it's too late.

0.5 Nope. DNF at 40%
Just couldn't take it anymore. The boy was creepy, his mother beyond annoying and the male protag was a very boring version of damaged hero. I am so not interested in how this plays out.

Sometimes you read a book because it's free, and you hate yourself for bothering. Such is the case with this.

A provisional three stars. More than once, for the first half of the book, I was tempted to DNF this one, because of Emma. She's awful. I tried to empathize with her plight, and the stress she was under, but she was just ... gah. EASE UP, LADY FACE.I found the book to be repetitious on occasion. A m...

Emma and Jake are on the run from a mysterious group or groups. Will has been hired to capture and deliver them. Somewhere along the way he changes sides and joins their team. There are prophesies, a 5 year old child who has a god-like baritone, a fair bit of violence, and perhaps strangest of al...
