Author: Anne Tibbets  
Release Date: 6/16/2014
Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N  
Twenty-two -year-old Naya has spent nearly half her life as a sex slave in a government institution called The Line. When she’s kicked out after getting pregnant with twins, she’s got no way to earn a living and a horrifying choice to make: find someone to replace her, or have her babies taken in her stead.A doctor with a history of aiding ex-Line girls, Ric Bennett, wants to help. He runs a team of rebels that can delete Naya’s records and free her forever. But when The Line sniffs out his plan, things get bloody, fast. Naya means more to them than just a chance at fresh faces—her twins are part of the government’s larger plan.

As they hide from government search parties, Ric comes to admire Naya’s quiet strength. And Naya realizes Ric might be a man she can trust. If they make it off the grid, they could build a new life. But first they’ll have to survive the long, vicious reach of The Line

Don't judge a book by it's synopsis....what???

Honestly I loved the synopsis of Carrier, the cover drew me in....but still as I started this book I was slightly leery of the actual premise of the book. A sex slave....a pregnancy....dystopia...I figured the author was either going to butcher this or create something so incredible blended that it would blow my mind.
(I'll let you guess which of these happened for me)
Naya is strong, because she had to be, both physically & emotionally. Being sold at such a young age into such an underground world could break a girl, hell it makes me quiver just thinking about it. For Naya it's a way of life. When her retirement is forced and she has a debt to pay, survival mode kicks in. Finding a way out of this debt is her focus & drive...then Ric enters the picture.
At this  point I truly don't want to cause any spoilers, but the book takes a great turn for me. There's just something about a plot twist that puts me on the edge of my seat.
Thank the book gods there wasn't a total cliff hanger at the end of this book....but I want this story to continue on, badly! So go out, grab this book & devour it!
