I've come to expect nothing great from all of these popular Kindle self published eBooks. But I gotta tell ya folks, this one is a winner in my book. First of all, I found it terribly hard to put down. It is actually quite long and detailed, but it is so well written that it feels all consuming instead of tedious. The main characters are alive and full while being terribly good at bantering with each other. They also have some pretty sexy moments together.

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?

This reads a little bit like a YA book, because the characters actually act their age. They aren't adults in a high school. (Like in my much loved Vampire Diaries, a world where you look 40, but still play a HS junior...I'm talking to you Stefan/Paul Wesley!) Also, since it has all the elements of a traditional romance novel (some very sexy times), I was glad the characters were older.  But it isn't all about the sex in this one like it is in so many of the New Adult books out there ready for your Kindle. It is about sadness, joy, connection, friendship, and of course true love. Awe.

This book is overwhelmingly loved. Read more about it HERE.
