Goodreads Synopsis: 

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?

Due to sexual content and language, this book is recommended for 17+ – Adult Contemporary Women’s – New Adult Fiction

My Review:

This is another book that I had heard and read some good things about. When I got approved for the sequel on Netgally, I knew it was time for me to give it a try.

Things are not perfect in Camryn's life. She has had to deal with some horrific things in her life and she is ready for a fresh start.  So she does the first spontaneous thing she has ever done and buys a random bus ticket to Idaho. With only a few items in tow and not much thought or preparation, she sets out to begin a new life. 

On this bus to her life, she meets Andrew a remarkably gorgeous guy with an annoying habit of playing his music too loud. As much as Camryn tries to keep to herself, she is thankful for Andrew's presence.  But finally the time comes when they just part for their individual destinations. And in Camryn's perspective it couldn't come soon enough as she find her attraction to Andrew growing and she can't let that happen. 

Sensing Camryn in danger and hesitant to face the horrors that he faces when he gets home Andrew returns back to the bus station to find Camryn. He proposes an idea for them to travel together. Through road trips, motel rooms, and some amazing music Camryn and Andrew allow themselves to get closer and help each other find the things in their life that was missing. But before they can sail of for a happy ending, Andrew has one big secret, which if revealed may rock Camryn's and everyone's world. 

This story is one of those that makes you feel so many different emotions and sometimes multiple at once. My heart was filled with joy and love, and then out of never it broke and filled with sorrow and tears. It kept me sitting in place and unable to put the book down and immediately jump to book 2 :)
