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? Continue reading

Excerpt:

Kent stretched languidly as he drifted out of sleep the next morning. He’d gone out with Rich for a few more beers after they’d dropped off Roni’s stuff, but he didn’t feel any worse for it.

He slowly opened one eye, happy for the blackout curtains he’d hung in his bedroom.

He was not a morning person.

He glanced over at the clock, his forearm brushing against the empty sheets next to him, and he wondered how long it had been since he’d had a woman in his bed.

Shit, at least since Roni had come to town and squatted in his house. Well, now that she had moved out and he had his space back, he would have to remedy that.

His mind wandered to Briana, and he wondered how she was doing in Austin. He couldn’t help but smile.

Although he was sad that she’d taken Colin back and had moved away, he couldn’t help but be proud that she’d followed her dreams.

He could think of her now without feeling sad. He knew that she’d never really been his to lose, but he’d still felt bereft when she’d told him she didn’t want to see him anymore.

He wasn’t naïve enough to think that he’d loved her, but he knew that he could have, if she’d given him the chance.

“Oh, well,” he thought as he pushed himself up in the bed and threw his legs over the side. “No use wishing for something that was never going to happen. Time to move on.”

He sat still for a moment, allowing himself time to wake up, before standing up and heading into the bathroom to take a shower.
