Ethan Domani had planned the perfect graduation trip before tragedy put his life on hold. Smothered by survivor’s guilt and his close-knit family, he makes a break for the open road. He doesn’t know what he’s looking for, but he’s got the whole summer to figure out who he misses more: his boyfriend, or the person he thought he was. It’s just him and his memories . . . until he almost runs over a hitchhiker.
Nick Hamilton made some mistakes after his younger brother died. His violent ex-boyfriend was the most dangerous, and the one that got him shipped off to Camp Cornerstone’s pray-the-gay-away boot camp. His eighteenth birthday brings escape, and a close call with an idiot in a station wagon. Stranger danger aside, Nick’s homeless, broke, and alone. A ride with Ethan is the best option he’s got.
The creepy corners of roadside America have nothing on the darkness haunting Ethan and Nick. Every interstate brings them closer to uncharted emotional territory. When Nick’s past shows up in their rearview mirror, the detour might take them off the map altogether.

♦️ Riina’s Review:
This. I love this book so much! 💜
I didn’t think I would find another #foreverfavorites (they’re pretty hard to come by) but this goes straight to my top ten list.
Guys. This story made me so happy – I wore a goofy smile throughout the book.
I adore both Nick and Ethan to bits – two smart asses with so much baggage to carry I was torn between laughing and crying all the time.
It was funny, heartbreaking and pretty fucking adorable. I loved their banter – best I ever had the pleasure of reading.
I wish their trip never ended. I feel a little lost right now. I miss them already!!
Fantastic writing and memorable characters, a sweet love story with a spooky touch – everything I could possibly want.
I wish I could push an erase button and forget every word I just read so I could enjoy it all over again and fall in love with these boys anew, chapter for chapter.
Many, many thanks to the publisher who kindly provided a free copy for an honest and impartial review.💕
