 The Edge of Never

By: J.A. Redmerski
Genre: New Adult Fiction
My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars 
Book Description:
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?
My Review:
I hesitated at first. I loved the cover but the book description didn't exactly draw me in. I read some reviews on Amazon and was quite confident that it would be a good read. So, I gave it a chance.
I loved the sense of adventure. The fact that Camryn took a chance and ventured out on her own without any direction. She pretty much used a baked potato to choose her destination. Quite funny by the way. Then she meets Andrew and the reader instantly falls in love with him. I know I did. He's so sweet.
They help each other throughout the book overcome their demons but it's apparent that Andrew is hiding something. When it's revealed it blows your mind. You think it's something not so crazy but it sure is. I was balling my eyes out at the end. I won't tell you why but the tears were happy as well.
Definitely a must read.
If you want to read an excerpt of my soon-to-be-released YA novel, CULTURE SHOCK, click HERE for the prologue and chapter 1.
Culture Shock's cover reveal is coming soon. Stay Tuned. I love it! It really embodies the book perfectly. A bit of elegance with creepy/horror with a vintage twist. Love, love, love my cover designer. I would marry her if she wasn't already married.
