SynopsisShe's mine. That was the first thought that came to my mind when I held my baby in my arms at seventeen. I didn't care that my parents had already promised to give her to a wealthy family. That they were forcing me to give her away. She was mine. I ran away from that hospital, from that family, from the only life I knew. I planned to start over with what little money I had, determined to make something of myself despite the odds. Then Logan Tate came along. Gorgeous and controlling, he claimed he was trying to help me, and he didn't care that I was just another teenage pregnancy story. But I don’t trust him. I don't trust anyone. And if Logan knew the real secrets and lies I was keeping inside, he wouldn't dare try to shelter me.

Angie J's Review:
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I LOVE ALICE TRIBUE!! I must start my review with this statement. Her book are "feel good books" even with the subject matter is gritty. How is that you ask? I mean teen pregnancy, runaway, hiding out, finding love, people trying to destroy love, being found AND a whole lotta other stuff in between and way after...........But through out all of her stories 2 things are the focus: 1. FAMILY 2. Love. Those are such stong themes in her books and for this I enjoy reaidng her books!!
So this story is about a 17 year old, Mia, who was being forced to give her baby away. A nurse helps her escape and so run she does with baby Lily. They travel from sunny Florida to PHILLY???? Yup Philly......she mets a nice landlord and soon an even nicer policeman who do what no person would do and give help to a young mother. Now in real life would a landlord rent to an 18 year old with no job...prolly not but thats ok because this is fiction and fiction is made to make me happy...not focus on the crappy world we really live in. So the hottie cop gets her a job with his friend who Mia tells MOST of her story too. Mia and Lily are happy until.............someone breaks into her apartment and *que hero music* enters hottie cop. He goes alllll kiiiindas alpha male on her and takes her home until her apartment is safe. Well do i really need to say it? Ok I will....They kinda start getting some yummy chemistry and soon get to sleep and sleeping only in bed together. Hottie Cop AKA Logan knows Mia is a fragile mess and takes it slow. Ya see people, Logan knows Mia is it for him. He is so smitten with her and baby Lily.....when she sees him rocking Lily in the chair *SWOON* who couldnt love a guy like that???
SO Mia and Logan start to get friendly and we get some more info from Mia about baby daddy and it seems he wasnt such a nice guy to her :( Logan takes his time and keeps up the awesome guy routine and is patient like nobodys business with this young woman. Logan even takes her home to met his mom and dad. Mia (and we the readers) are ready to hear it from them about how insane this relationship is and how Mia needs to leave but GASP it doesn't. They love her and Lily!!! Ya gotta love that.
So the drama...wow it was good...seems someone has their eye on Logan and seeing an 18 year old with her man makes her angry. Mia's parents find her along with baby daddy. When a big development in the story happens and we learn alllll about Mia and babby daddy.....I was shocked. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO didnt see that at all and was like WOW AWESOME TWIST ALICE!!!
The epilogue in Logans POV was awesome. I was cracking up at his inner thoughts while Mia is beggin her case on somestuff. He is soo smitten with her. We see it in the book but hearing it is a riot. He is such a "guy" when he says "a guy will say anything to get some" I cracked up.....Oh Logan......
I abso loved the story and if you like Alice's stuff you need to read this. It is her first time writing NA and I hope its not her last :)
