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

 Title: The Edge of Never (The Edge of Never #1)
Author: J.A. Redmerski
Source: Purchased


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 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?


The Edge of Never is the first book in this New Adult series by J.A. Redmerski. It's a story about a 20 year old girl named Camryn who just wants to get away from her life and start new. With no plans, she boards a bus to see where life takes her. On her travels, she meets a guy named Andrew – who seems to have a lot of the same views on life that she does. They both just want more excitement out of life.

Camryn and Andrew have both been dealt some crappy hands in life. There is no insta-love here. Neither of them are looking for love – especially Camryn. She has pretty much sworn off love. They become friends though, and a relationship naturally forms between them. It's like fate that they met on that bus. They are perfect for each other.

The book is written from both points of view. Camryn is a character that is really easy to like and identify with. Andrew is the perfect book boyfriend. There is nothing about him not to like. There are some steamy love scenes in this book, one in particular is really hottt. This is a very unique, emotional book. Andrew has a big secret he is keeping, and there is a twist toward the end of the book that shocked me.

I kept going back and forth on whether to give this book 4 or 5 stars. It's a great story, but there are times where it's really slow – especially in the beginning. There was a time toward the beginning where I was afraid I wasn't going to like the book, but the second half really picked up. If you are a fan of New Adult books, then I suggest picking this one up. It has a ton of awesome reviews!
