Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett thought she knew exactly where her life was going. But after a wild night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she shocks everyone - including herself - when she decides to leave the only life she's ever known and set out on her own. Grabbing her purse and her cell phone, Camryn boards a Greyhound bus ready to find herself. Instead, she finds Andrew Parrish.
Sexy and exciting, Andrew lives life like there is no tomorrow. He persuades Camryn to do things she never thought she would and shows her how to give in to her deepest, most forbidden desires. Soon he becomes the center of her daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But there is more to Andrew than Camryn realizes. Will his secret push them inseparably together - or destroy them forever?

I bought this after seeing all of the good reviews, but I was disappointed. It's a long book, and not much happens until the end. It's very drawn out and too slow for my tastes - it didn't hold my interest.
I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
I loved everything about this book! I had no idea what to expect when I started this book. I've been seeing great reviews on the Goodread website so I was excited to see it available thru Audible. The characters are beautiful, story is wonderful, and I fell head over heels fast with Andrew. He's hot, sexy, passionate, dominant, funny, strong, and yet he is sensitive. This book has some definitely steamy parts! I think this book was well written and well performed by Lauren Fortgang. This book hits you in all the right places! It has its sincere moments, funny moments, passionate moments and I was even a blubbering tissue blowing mess towards the end. This is by far is my new favorite book! It surpassed all of my other favorites straight to the top! BUY THIS BOOK!
I absolutely love Andrew Parrish. He is everything a girl could dream of for a perfect man!!
She did a fabulous job with all of them! I will definitely look for more of her narrations!
Yes Yes Yes..in fact, this book was worth being sleep deproved the next day for work!
I hope Audible gets the sequel that is due to come out in November. I wish Audible would start a genre on New Adult Romance not just Contemporary Romance. There are some very popluar books out that I'm dying to hear rather than just read. I would spend more money on credits if more new adult romance books were released on Audible!
I am a 50 something listener and halfway through the first chapter was sure I'd made a poor selection. The life of twenty somethings for whom money is never a consideration couldn't be more foreign. But, I stuck it out and was glad. This story turned out to be about universal and ageless themes.Yes, it's told from a different perspective than mine and yes..there were a few scenes where our couple displayed really silly behavior that was inconsiderate of those around them. (note to twenty somethings...lewd conversations held publicly to shock "old people" are not witty, not charming, not amusing. Okay, a personal peeve of mine). Despite these distractions, I recommend this story to any adult listener. As another listener commented, this could be a good young adult read if one edited the sex scenes. (There aren't that many).
The narrator is a little slower than I normally like, but eventually I grew more comfortable and found her voice and cadence relaxing and almost meditative.
In summary, this book was written, I think, for a young audience, so a more mature reader may be irritated by some parts of the story, but the writer is quite good, so it makes it worth a few aggravating moments to experience the story. Oh yeah, I cried..no I sobbed...and I am NOT a crier. Really, this writer is good.
This book is like a roller coaster ride it plummets you down so fast and then just as fast whooshes to up into the clouds. I absolutely loved the first part of the book and the second half, well, for me, for a little while it becames immature but I think this is YA anyway. Then it just took my emotions and rung them out....I haven't listened to a book like this in a very long time. It is a LOVE STORY...that comes outta nowhere. Wonderfully narrated. Great production. This one is a grabber..I know I won't forget this book.
I'm an audio junkie and people tend to look at me strangely when I tell them I hear voices in my head - through my headphones . . .
It's in my top 5 all-time favorites. I listened to twice in a row.
The chemistry, between the two characters is electric. The dialogue is fantastic. You can visualize these two incredible people falling in love.
Great voice characterization. She performs Andrew's voice flawlessly.
Camryn took a road trip to find herself but what she found was her soul mate.
This book grabbed me from the first few words. I was sad when it ended, and that's why I listened to it all over again.
Oh my, sorry to give a bad review but -- sooooooooooo boring. One of the main characters is a man and the other a woman. The chapters flip back and forth between characters but the narrator sounds the same in both, so I kept forgetting which was which. Very long and drawn out. No real "action".
The beginning was OK middle was so long and boring that I didn't finish it.
Best listen in a long time. Read the reviews online and decided to use my credit. Boy was it worth it! I was pulled in from the beginning and by the end I was crying. Bring the tissues.
When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!
I found this story to be a charming classic love story. The emotion and passion reminds me of Nicholas Sparks book The Notebook. The two main characters go through a journey of discovery together. Sometimes everyone needs to break away from the ordinary to discover the extraordinary. The love scenes are detailed but their are not many. Some one else claimed that this story is similar to "50 Shades of Gray" and "The Crossfire Series" but I disagree. The story is not as sexual or filled with angst but instead classic passionate love story. The narrator did a wonderful job and I was very happy with this book!
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
This is the first book from this author I've read (listened to) and I am completely in love with this book. I loved every minute of the book and I was hooked the entire book. I will be recommending this book to my friends and adding this author to my favorite author list.

All of it...Andrew and Camryn have a completely unique story and I loved every second of it.
I can't compare...it's a great angsty New Adult romance.
She doesn't over do Andrew's voice, which I appreciate it - it's very natural. She's also got a great voice for Camryn.
Two lost souls who find their way together...
Andrew is on of my top book boyfriends ever and this story just hits me in all the right places - the emotions, the characters, the writing - every part of it is awesome.
I have laughed and cried with this story it truly is a fantastic book. I haven't been touched like that by a story line in a very, very long time.
