My Review:
Cameryn is unhappy with her life. She's had nothing but one bad thing after another come at her. Her boyfriend and love of her life died in a car wreck, she has a brother that’s in prison for a drunk driving accident that killed a person. Her mother and father have gotten a divorce and she has had a massive argument with her best-friend. She’s depressed and needs to get away; to escape her problems and her life.

Who knew your life could change on the Greyhound. When twenty-year-old Camryn decides to leave behind his old life and take a bus to absolutely nowhere, meeting Andrew was probably the best thing she picked up on her way....

This is a beautiful love story. It is so realistic, it did not feel like a story. Fantastically written! This story makes you smile and makes you cry!

There are parts of this tale that are so touching and so deeply emotional that it tears your heart out, but it all serves a purpose. Every page, every word, every character counts...what an amazing ride!

My Favorite Quotes:
"You dwell on the past, you can't move forward. Spend too much time planning for the future and you just push yourself backwards, or you stay stagnant in the same place all your life." His eyes lock on mine. "Live in the moment..."

“I belong to you, Andrew Parrish…“Please…,” I whisper, “don’t let me go….”

Depression is pain in it's purest form and I would do anything to be able to feel an emotion again. Any emotion at all. Pain hurts, but pain so powerful that you can't feel anything anymore, that's when you start to feel like you're going crazy." ~Cameryn  

"I was taking the long road and Camryn was taking the road to nowhere and it just so happens that they led to the same place." ~Andrew description:
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?

He was taking the long road. She was taking the road to nowhere. It just so happened that they led to the same place…

When everything falls apart, love remains . . .

Camryn Bennett has never been happier. Five months after meeting on a Greyhound bus, she and her soul mate Andrew Parrish are engaged—and a wedding isn’t the only special event in their future. Nervous but excited, Camryn can’t wait to begin the rest of her life with Andrew – a man she knows in her heart will love her always. They have so much to look forward to—until tragedy blindsides them.

Andrew doesn’t understand how this could happen to them. He’s trying to move on, and thought Camryn was doing the same. But when Andrew discovers Camryn is secretly harboring a mountain of pain and attempting to numb it in damaging ways, there is nothing he won’t do to bring her back to life. Determined to prove that their love can survive anything, Andrew decides to take Camryn on a new journey filled with hope and passion. If only he can convince her to come along for the ride…
