Blurb (from Goodreads):
Hitchhiking is a bad idea but Caden is desperate. When she accepts a ride from the first car to come by she meets Gabriel. He's her age, hot, and the closest thing she has to a savior. Problem is, he is a total jerk. With nowhere to go, Caden convinces Gabriel to let her stay with him for one night. He reluctantly lends a couch. That night Caden wakes up to strange noises. Concerned, she rushes into Gabriel’s room, already anticipating his bad temper. Instead, he’s kind, sweet, and suspiciously harmless—nothing like the man who gave her a ride. He seems like a different person altogether, and claims he is. By night he is Tom, and by day he is Gabriel. Caden finds herself drawn to the mysteries hidden in his eyes. For Gabriel, Caden is an annoying mistake. One night turns into many, and despite all his anger towards her, she stays. She even seems to accept him and his flaws, but he still doesn’t trust her—is she staying for him, or has she already discovered more than he's willing to share?
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was quite a strange story about a boy with two different identities, and the girl who tried to figure out what was going on.
I felt quite sorry for Rebecca/Cade, especially because things were so bad that she felt the need to change her name and run away from her abusive ex-boyfriend. Hitchhiking, and then staying at a strangers house could have caused her to end up dead or worse, so she really did take some big risks.
The storyline in this book was about Caden meeting Gabriel and discovering his other personality – Tom, who only showed up at night, and seemed to be more of a child than a grown man. I did find this story a little strange in places though, and the pace was a little too slow for me.
There was a little bit of romance in this one, but it was also a bit weird as Gabriel had this other personality inside him, who came across as very child-like.
The ending to this book was a cliff-hanger, and if anything these characters have gotten themselves into even more trouble than they were in at the start of the book! I wonder how on earth they are going to be able to solve this mess!
