New York Times bestselling author J.A. Redmerski brings us a stunning and heart-wrenching new novel about a couple who find each other in their darkest moment. 

Since they were kids, Elias Kline and Brayelle Bates have been inseparable. When Bray moves to South Carolina, separating the two for the first time, they both at last realize that their innocent childhood friendship has developed into something much more. So when Bray finally returns to Georgia—and to Elias—things between them couldn’t be more perfect…until one fateful night changes everything.

Desperate not to go to prison for a terrible accident, Elias and Bray decide to run. As they try to make the most of their freedom, the two find themselves relying on a rebellious group of people who tempt the duo into a wild and daring new life. But they can’t run from their troubles forever.

As the consequences of their past catch up to them, the couple must finally face reality. Even if they can make it through the unimaginable, Elias knows the truth about Bray’s painful history, and in the end he may not be able to save Bray from herself…

My Thoughts:

"We're all different. We all have our own quirks and flaws and dark secrets. All of us are fucked up on some level, whether or not we want to admit it to ourselves. And I like to believe that not every problem or issues that we deal with in our daily lives must be labeled with a fancy title."
This book was fantastic. What I loved about this book was that there was so much going on. The suspense of when they were going to get caught and turned in after reading that beginning. Then there was the drama and wondering what was  going to happen between the couple. It was interesting getting to know the random people they met during their escape. When it came to the characters I loved Elias character he was supportive and caring. As for Bray, I hated her character at first then grew to love her character as things went on because I could see that she had an issues that wasn't being helped that caused her to make some stupid choices. I hated that she was selfish and she brought Elias down with her. The only things I didn't like was that it was too long for my liking, it was a bit wordy and there was times where the book seemed to drag.

If you haven't read this book then read it! If you are or have attempted to read this book and didn't finish keep going because it gets better. Overall I loved this book and recommend you readers to check it out. 5 of 5 stars!

Love isn't always roses and rainbows and butterflies in your stomach. It's equally cruel and painful and the world's worst villain."
