"Since they were kids, Elias Kline and Brayelle Bates have been inseparable.

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…"
This is going to be a short review because I didn't even finish this book. Don't get me wrong! I'm a huge fan of J.A. and this book was really good but this entire issue in this book was one that I was not comfortable reading about. I couldn't get through it because of that, and I just ended up feeling really sick to my stomach.

I know that most people don't mind this kind of this but this isn't a mystery or thriller where I could work with this kind of situation. I'm not saying what that situation is in this book but it is one that could land these characters in prison. Overall it made me very uncomfortable and therefore I was unable to finish this book. 

Maybe a few years from now I will be able to pick it up again with no problem and finish it but at the moment I really can't. I really hope all of you understand. If you are okay with reading this kind of stuff then I would say go read it and tell me what you think about it! It just isn't for me.

I am looking forward to reading more of J.A.'s other books and am not going to let this deter me from reading more of her work. Since I didn't finish this I am not going to give this a rating to be fair.
