Review: The Edge of Never by J. A. Redmerski

Title: The Edge of Never
Author: J. A. Redmerski

Rating: 5/5 Stars


Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett thought she knew exactly where her life was going. But after a wild night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she shocks everyone-including herself-when she decides to leave the only life she's ever known and set out on her own. Grabbing her purse and her cell phone, Camryn boards a Greyhound bus ready to find herself. Instead, she finds Andrew Parrish.

Sexy and exciting, Andrew lives life like there is no tomorrow. He persuades Camryn to do things she never thought she would and shows her how to give in to her deepest, most forbidden desires. Soon he becomes the center of her daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But there is more to Andrew than Camryn realizes. Will his secret push them inseparably together-or destroy them forever?

My thoughts: 

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Oh my God. 
This book was AMAZING, so prepare yourself for a full-on gushy review.
I haven't read many new adult books, but after reading this one, I want to read more. 
Redmerski has become a new favourite author of mine.
The storyline to this book was so simple, yet effective. I was glued to the pages and found it hard to put the book down. 
I liked it having two different perspectives. Getting to hear from both characters was great as I got to read how they were feeling, etc. 
And don't get me started on how much I loved reading about Andrew. 
In fact, I found bother characters were incredibly strong. I admired both of them as opposite genders. Camryn was the girl I wanted to be, and Andrew was the guy I wanted to be with.
The beginning was easy enough, as we are first off introduced to Camryn and her friend, and we feel sympathy for her. But then again, if that didn't happen, she never would have got on that bus... ;)
When I was first reading about Andrew, my heart was actually pounding in my chest. 
This story was beautifully written, and it wasn't even some cheesy romance book. 
In my mind I wanted Camryn and Andrew to get together so bad as they were just perfect for each other. They made each other a better person.  
The chapters are a nice decent length as well, and the book is split into sections.
I really like the cover. It has the colours yellow and black, which the first thing that comes to mind is opposite colours in reference to light. 
I also like how they show the girl with her braid, as her hair is mentioned several times throughout the story. 
It's an incredibly addictive read, and I found myself frustrated when they acted like they were together, but weren't. I was screaming aloud, "JUST GET TOGETHER, DAMMIT!! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU BOTH?!" And I know I can be impatient, haha.
Three quarters through the book, an event happened that hit me like a rock. I felt like someone punched me in the gut. I knew something was up, but I was so in the moment that it just knocked me back.
However, the ending was just purely a perfect ending to this great book.
Overall, I just couldn't fault this book. It has become a new favourite of mine. So of course I gave this book five out of five stars.
I haven't read any of Redmerski's books before, but now that I've read this one, I will most definitely check her other books out. 
If you love new adult romances, contemporary romances, or romances in general, then you NEED to pick this book up. It will not disappoint you!!

Happy reading =)
