“Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.
Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.
With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.
But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she’d do. He shows her what it’s really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew’s dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?” (Book bio)
The Edge of Never is written by J. A. Redmerski. It was first self-published in 2012 and re-released in 2013 through Grand Central Publishing. The story is told through both views of Camryn and Andrew which obviously gives a big perspective. I for one enjoy seeing the males’ side when the story is as emotional as this one. Along with fun travels, deep conversations, some relatable experiences, and romance this is a book you won’t put down.
Redmerski will have you on an emotional roller coaster. You will laugh and you will cry. She even gives some attention to music (and one of my favorite bands), the Civil Wars. The book ends beautifully and I did not expect a sequel. But I am more than happy to see these characters again. This is a book that I strongly suggest to be on your reading list.
The Edge of Never overall makes me want to jump in my car and see where the road takes me. Once you read you too will want to live your life a little differently. I begin to wonder, am I noticing everything that life is giving me? Are there opportunities I am neglecting due to my fears? Life isn’t perfect but sometimes lack can be your gain in other areas. Remember to look at ALL of the corners of your life.
SO! Better hurry and read now because its sequel The Edge of Always will be making its debut, this month, January 14th. You can pre-order now on Amazon.
