The second book starts off with Camryn and Andrew celebrating the new life that is coming into their life and being engaged. They are dealing with normal stresses that new parents have to deal with, but it becomes to much for Camryn.

After tragedy strikes the couple, Camryn goes into a denial. Andrew and Natalie try to break her of her state, but it’s no use. When Andrew discovers what Camryn’s doing to help cope with the bad tings in her life, he snaps, but it’s her who makes him see how the tragedy has changed him.

In an attempt to get both of their lives back on track, they decide to follow their dream and live on the road. While on the road, they really build a strong foundation for their relationship and they make a list of promises with one another about their relationship and their future.

As the book comes to an end, Camryn and Andrew learn how to compromise their dreams and their life as responsible adults. They prove that you don’t have to settle with anything.

This book had a little more development with Camryn’s character, but still not so much with Andrew’s. Redmerski is portraying him as this flawless character that even the incident with Camryn, he still doesn’t snap. I know if I were in a situation like that, I certainly wouldn’t have been as forgiving or understanding.

I really do like the relationship between Camryn and Andrew as a whole. They have an easy back and forth relationship that is fun to read and see develop.

The story really does have the story book ending that solidifies the two book series. What I didn’t like about it though is that BIG conflict that they have to work. There was one at the beginning but then it gets resolved about half way through so that the 2nd half is basically just reading a couple drive all over America. As a fan, I couldn’t really appreciate the ending as much because while they had their problems, they seemed to be resolved quickly.

Overall, it was an overall beautiful story but I think a more fully developed story would have helped. Though, it was better then some of the other books that I’ve read that were similar. The two main characters were fully developed but we didn’t get a whole lot of secondary characters. It’s got a great theme about following your dreams and never settling and it really does make me want to go after my dreams, so Redmeski’s goal in the story did work.

Recommendations: The Ella/Micha series by Jessica Sorensen, Damaged series by H.M. Ward
