THE EDGE OF NEVER
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?
Wow, what a fantastic read! I devoured this book. Devoured. I absolutely have all the feels right now. It took a few chapters to get into, but that was before Camryn Bennett knew she was on a bus to nowhere and met Andrew Parrish. This is the journey of two lost souls, a romance that is off the charts, and secrets that will make you cry. I know right? Yeah, it is SO GOOD!!
While the plot was straightforward, it flowed so well for me and I didn’t even realize I was nearly done with this book. It was simple, yet had all my emotions and owned my heart. The story was mainly predictable, but not all of it! The best surprise for me is that this book is told in alternating POVs and I pretty much starting freaking out with delight when I got to be in Andrew’s head. WIN!
I loved Camrym, loved! She had maxed out with her life and needed to get away. While she was depressed I could still connect with her. She had a spark of life in her that was undeniable. I also loved her honesty. She may not have told Andrew everything all at once, but she really laid it out there for him once she trusted him, and woa! She has spunk!! I wish I could be her friend in real life!
Oh Andrew. le sigh. I realllly loved Andrew. I loved that we got to hear his POV as the story was told. He was gorgeous and confident, yet still had his demons and secrets. Exactly how I love my book boyfriends. Oh, and he is definitely a little bit naughty.
The chemistry between these two is off the charts. It was a slow burn and the physical side of their relationship started off in a backwards kind of way, but it totally worked and it was totally HOT. Yes, steaming hot. Turns out once they give in and admit their attraction they seem to have quite a lot in common. RAWR!
The ending totally surprised me. I absolutely did not see THAT coming, and then the very, very end? I was crying!! Everything did happen quickly, but at the same time it was wrapped up so well that I felt totally satisfied. Before I finished this book I thought it was a stand alone novel and was fine with that, but let me tell you that I am pretty excited to find out that there is a sequel!
Rec it? Yes, yes, yes, yes yes! A great love story that will leave you wanting more. Luckily book 2, The Edge of Always, comes out in November!
