My second book this year. I’ve read some very good reviews about this book and I have three friends who highly recommend that I read it, so that’s what I’m doing right now. I’m currently reading this on e-book form (I seem to have a lot of ebooks in my ibook library) and have finished more or less 3 chapters so far.
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?
I can kind of relate to Camryn’s way of thinking about the repetitiveness of life. Questioning one’s self. How growing old with the same lackluster life can be horrifying in a sense. Wanting to change that monotonousness, but knowing that to change things you have to be the one to take that step towards that change. And that could sometimes mean leaving something behind…
