Goodreads Summary:

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…

What Made Me Swoon:

"I knew that going forward, no matter what I did, I wanted Elias to be right there with me.  Not just as best friends.  But as lovers, girlfriend and boyfriend, husband and wife.  I didn't care, as long as we were together and in love the way we were meant to be.

His lips covered mine and he kissed me deeply, passionately, stealing my breath away.  My stomach fluttered and spun and did things it had never done before, not even the first time we had sex.  And before I knew it, I was pulling his T-shirt over his raised arms and tossing it somewhere on the floor.  He practically tore my shirt off me.  We stood up and I wrapped my legs around his waist, and he carried me into his bedroom and threw me down on the bed.

He didn't wait even a minute before stripping off the rest of my clothes.  And then his.  I watched the muscles flex in his arms and in his chest as he crawled on top of me.  He was so damn gorgeous to me, every muscle, every line, every curve in his sculpted, tanned body.  His mouth hungry for mine, searching my breasts and my neck and the underside of my chin until he found my lips and kissed me ravenously."  (eARC, Loc. 504)
