*I received a copy as part of the Demanding Ransom Blog Tour*
I absolutely loved this book! Its a little different than what I typically read, but I think that's what I liked most about it. This book was so heart wrenching, it had me in tears on more then one occasion. 

Tragedy strikes in the beginning of the book when college student Maggie is on her way to the hospital after receiving news that her brother has been admitted.
I really enjoyed the scene in the back of the ambulance with Maggie and Ran. Here's a little bit of that scene:
"You need to sit still, Ma'am."
I grit my teeth and open my eyes wide. "Ma'am? Really?" 
He laughs again. Now I can see him more clearly, which is weird because I'd always assumed you needed light to see. But before he was silhouetted against it, and now it diffuses softly across his face. He had a nice face. I like his face.
Oh man, my head feels really light. So does my whole body. Like a balloon filled with helium. I like balloons, too. Geez, what did they give me?
"You don't want me to call you Ma'am?" He drags a hand through his hair and the brown strands situate back into their tousled position.
"No, I don't. I like your face and I like balloons, but I don't like being called Ma'am."
=============================================== That scene gets better but I didn't want to ruin the whole thing for you. 
This book is definitely one to pick up if you are into New Adult.
This genre is starting to grow on me and I am really enjoying it!

There was a lot of emotions in this book. I laughed out loud and cried a lot too.
Its really great to read a book that pulls at your heart strings every now and then.
Ran is the ultimate book boyfriend for me. His job is to help save lives, he rides a motorcycle, has tattoos, and he's got a sweet, sensitive side to him that just makes him so loveable!

Overall, this was an incredible book, with fantastic characters, written by an amazing author.
Megan Squires really knows how to write a great book! I am really looking forward to finding out what happens with Maggie and Ran in book 2, Ransom's Note. 

I gave Demanding Ransom 5/5 Butterflies!!
