Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.
Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.
With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.
But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she’d do. He shows her what it’s really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew’s dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?
Oh my frickin’ life!! Another for the favourites shelf, for sure! That book was completely and utterly awesome! I’m going to need a few minutes to compose myself. I’ve literally got sad-tears-turned-happy-tears streaming down my cheeks.
Yes. It was THAT good! The whole book was amazing but the ending was off the chain!
I was addicted to Camryn and Andrew from the get go. The plot was unique and fascinating. I loved the series of events that lead to their meeting. It takes some good writing to make unbelievable coincidences entirely believable and that’s exactly what Redmerski does.
Coincidence is just the conformist term for fate.
Camryn and Andrew’s relationship developed naturally, uniting them in their pain and heartache. I always enjoy alternate POV’s and Camryn and Andrew’s thoughts for one another were beautiful. There was so many great parts of this story that I feel need mentioning… I loved the scene in the rain, the night under the stars, the part where they teased the truck driver, the performance at Old Point Bar… Their interactions were heart warming and addictive, despite the sadness surrounding the story.
You know damn well that it doesn’t really matter what’s going on in your life, who you just lost, how much you hate the world, or how inappropriate it is to have an attraction to someone before the mending phase has reached the acceptable zone. You’re still human and the moment you see someone attractive, you can’t help but make a note of it. It’s human nature.
Everything about this book restores your faith in fate and true love. Andrew and Camryn were soul mates of the truest kind.
“You two were meant to be together. It’s like some wicked fucking fairytale love story that you just can’t make up, y’know?”
Camryn was a fab heroine! She was spirited, game and completely in awe of Andrew. She let him ‘own’ her long before she admitted it to herself. She let him guide her and fix the parts of her that were broken and hurting.
Andrew… well, how do I sum up such a wonderful character? He’s hot, he’s sensitive, he’s fun, he’s protective, he’s almostfearless and he is so in love with Camryn it melts your heart! Oh my God, the sex was incredibly hot! And the prize for possibly the most romantic thing I’ve ever read goes to Andrew…
I think if past lives are real then we have been lovers in every single one of them. I’ve known you for a short time, but I feel like I’ve known you forever.
Oh my goodness, that letter. I was bawling my eyes out! I tried so hard to hold it all in but in the end my eyes were stinging so hard that I just let the tears flow! At 98% I thought my heart was going to shatter… and then there was chapter 40. Thank God for chapter 40! Possibly the most wonderful HEA ever! So my heartbroken crying turned into ecstatic sobbing before my tears even got a chance to dry.
All I can say, without giving anything away is that you HAVE to read this book. It’s so beautiful and so completely unique. Seriously, you will not be disappointed!
