He was taking the long road. She was taking the road to nowhere. It just so happened that they led to the same place…
When everything falls apart, love remains . . .
THE EDGE OF ALWAYS
Camryn Bennett has never been happier. Five months after meeting on a Greyhound bus, she and her soul mate Andrew Parrish are engaged—and a wedding isn’t the only special event in their future. Nervous but excited, Camryn can’t wait to begin the rest of her life with Andrew – a man she knows in her heart will love her always. They have so much to look forward to—until tragedy blindsides them.
Andrew doesn’t understand how this could happen to them. He’s trying to move on, and thought Camryn was doing the same. But when Andrew discovers Camryn is secretly harboring a mountain of pain and attempting to numb it in damaging ways, there is nothing he won’t do to bring her back to life. Determined to prove that their love can survive anything, Andrew decides to take Camryn on a new journey filled with hope and passion. If only he can convince her to come along for the ride…
I was so surprised when I found out The Edge of Always was coming out because I felt like the first book had wrapped everything up so neatly. However I did not foresee what J.A. Redmerski had in store for Camryn and Andrew. This book broke my heart in so many ways.
Camryn in this book was kind of a shell of herself, and in a way it was interesting to watch her grieve in her own way. It wasn’t what I would have expected, and my heart hurt for her because I could understand exactly what she was going through. I was so glad though when she began to pull out of it, and start to get her old self back. There was one incident where I was mad on behalf of Camryn, and it was definitely a turning point in the story for me.
Andrew was an enigma in this book because he kept so much to himself. I actually enjoyed his point of view because he was trying so hard to keep it together for Camryn it was tough to know how he was feeling. It was interesting to watch Andrew lose it after an incident at a party. It was totally crazy, and I understood why he lost his cool, but it was so surprising because normally that never happens to him.
It was interesting to watch Andrew and Camryn grow with each other. I loved the idea that they were committed to each other, and they grew together instead of apart. I feel like they both worked really hard to make sure that they stayed together.
I did like the way this book wrapped up at the end, but again I felt like it was too neatly wrapped up. Not only did we get Andrew and Camryn’s happy ending but we also got everyone else’s. I can like that, but it just felt too neatly wrapped up. I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars for that reason. I still would highly recommend this series though, especially for fans of New Adult.
4/5 – An Enjoyable Read, Well Written
