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…
New Adult Contemporary Romance - Standalone Novel
Bray and Elias have been friends forever. There were each other’s first kiss and safe harbor in the storm. It would seem only a natural evolution of their relationship would be to become a couple and there is nothing that Elias wants more than Bray. But Bray is afraid – afraid that her relationship with Elias will end up just like all the other important relationships in her life – broken.
“I can’t do this with you forever,” I said. “I want to be in love, to be loved back. I want to get married one day and maybe have a couple of kids – call me old-fashioned, but whatever.” She wanted to tear her eyes away from mine, but she couldn’t; she was still frozen in place, her body rigid. “I’ve imagined that person being you. It’s always been about you. But if you don’t want to at lest try to be her, then maybe we should stop being friends. This… thing we have, this… relationship, it’s unhealthy.”
“Nothing can beat a Southern summer. Bray and I grew up in them together, loving the heat and humidity, the noisy nature at night and the birds that always woke up before the sun in the morning. We loved fishing and wading in the creeks catching crawdads and chasing fireflies in the pastures. Always the fireflies.”
J.A. Redmerski still shines brightly with her poetic prose and there is even an appearance from Andrew and Camryn from The Edge of Never. And that made Song of the Fireflies so worth the emotional turmoil…
