*Contains a few tiny spoilers*
If someone had told me a year ago that I was about to fall in love, go on an epic road trip, ride a Triceratops, sing on a bar, and lose my virginity, I would have assumed they were on drugs.
Well, that is, until I met Beckham.
Beck was mostly to blame for my recklessness. Gorgeous, clever, undeniably charming Beck barreled into my life as if it were his mission to make sure I never took living for granted. He showed me that there were no boundaries, rules were for the spineless, and a kiss was supposed to happen when I least expected.
Beck was the plot twist that took me by surprise. Two months before I met him, death was knocking at my door. I’d all but given up my last scrap of hope when suddenly, I was given a second chance at life. This time around, I wasn’t going to let it slip through my fingers.
We set out on a road trip with nothing to lose and no guarantees of tomorrow.
Our road trip was about young, reckless love.
The kind of love that burns bright.
The kind of love that no road-map could bring me back from.

Genre: New Adult/Romance/Contemporary/Travel
Characters: Abby and Beck
Abby has been in and out of hospital most of her life and living with a short expiry date due to her heart condition. But then she gets a heart transplant and suddenly she is able to start living. I really liked how profound this book was. There were some really sad moments but this was perfectly balanced by the happy moments. Abby and Becks relationship development was quite beautiful to read, it was well paced and balanced, I liked how they bounced off one another. I also admired Becks patience with Abby whose limited/non-existent experience of being in a relationship lead to moments that would have mad most men extremely pissed off but Beck handle them with a maturity that most 21 years lack.
I don’t think I can find fault with any of this story, it was well-written and thought provoking, I felt Abby’s struggle with how she should be living her life was very well done. The sadness and injustice she feels when she loses her best friend to cancer added to her growing love for Beck gave her character lots of emotional depth.
I’ve deliberately not written to much about what happens in the story because it’s really better kept a surprise and I’m trying to keep my reviews a spoiler free as possible.
