i enjoyed this book but got confused with so much swapping between past and present.

The book starts with Mikki  (Makayla) and Pea on the run and at this point we have no idea why she has “kidnapped” Pea only that she obviously loves her. and this is where Mikki starts telling us the story of how she came to kidnap and runaway with Pea. 
Mikki tells us about her mum dying and how her mum had tried to get her to find her dad so she wasn't alone but Mikki can only remember when he turned her away so she will not contact him. 

When her mum dies Mikki runs away so she doesn't have to be taken into care as she isn't quite eighteen yet as she runs away she finds Blake Coast and coerces him into employing her as his daughters nanny. What Coast doesn't know is that his boss is Mikki’s dad. 
The story goes back and forth explaining how Mikki and pea are getting on while they on the run and how it got to the point of them needing to run, then the book starts to mingle as the story of the past catches up to the present.

Running smack into one man while trying to get to another wasn’t part of the plan. I never meant to plow into him. I was upset, running from a pain that followed me. The fact that he needed me was not only a blessing, but an omen as well. I could get far, far away from the agony and never look back. I could get to the one man I wanted to suffer, and never let him see me coming. It was the perfect plan.

I was the blinded one, oblivious to what was impending. Propositions and untied shoes, lies and runny noses, betrayal and playdates, all things I never saw coming. Unconditional love was forced down my throat, compelling me to do things I had to do. I ran.

No matter what they say, it wasn’t about the money. It was never about the money.
