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 Raleigh, 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?
5 HUGE Stars!
First of all... This book broke my heart.. It really did! But by the end J.A.Redmerski was capable to put it back together.
And before I say more, I just want to share a song, that was in my head throughout this all book.
I know that Cam and Andrew would probably not be happy 'bout my pick, but I just feel this song is appropriate somehow for this book. And I really want to share that.
Short version of the book:
So the story start with a girl, a broken one. She's gone through some horrible things in her life already, and she's only 20. It's hard for her to adapt in this life.
She's dreaming of world-travel and feels like nobody gets her.
So one day she just does it. Gets up, trow some necessary's in her bag and leaves... She don't know where's she going, and basically she don't even cares.
And that's when all the fun begins!
I don't wanna spoil you all that went on, so I wont! Cause this book...!!!! You need to read it and breath it in! It was such a beautiful, although a little heartbroken story. The pain, and the joy, the love.. all that they went through, I felt it in my bones. I cried when they did, I laughed when they laughed. And although I got the flu, and both of my girls are sick too, I stayed late in the night, as much as possible, read when I could, just to finally get to the end. I was so scared of the ending.. And when I couldn't read,( cause of the two sick kids... well, you can only imagine the fun lol) I thought about Cam and Andrew almost all the time, and Rihanna - Diamonds lyrics playing in my mind.
Even now, it's still so fresh, that remember this book, especially some parts of it makes me wanna cry like mo'fo.
I wanna thank to the Author for this amazing journey! I know that I say this a lot, but I only say it when I really mean it!
