Andrew Parrish

from The Edge of Never by J. A. Redmerski

♥ About Me: Hi everyone! I’m Celeste, I live in the Boston area and I am a blogger from The Book Hookup.  I love books with lots and lots and lots (did I mention lots?) of swoons. I review mostly YA, but NA is starting to become my new favorite. I usually gravitate towards books with paranormal elements in them, but I do read contemps, and when I do they are usually pretty epic, like The Edge of Never. Trust me, this book is epic and we can thank Andrew Parrish for that.

I might still be flailing and freaking out with excitement because I’m the advocate for Andrew Parrish from The Edge of Never by J. A. Redminski. That’s right. Andrew. Freaking. Parrish. Yes, he’s the guy from the story that gave me a massive book hangover and left me with all the feels. And I mean ALL OF THEM. From the laughs, to the raging hormones, to the swoons, and yes, even to the tears, I love him. So, let’s dive in and talk nitty gritty about all the reasons Andrew owns my heart…are you ready?

*rolls up sleeves, takes a deep breath and tries to stop flailing and drooling long enough to coherently convince you all he needs to win this tourney*

♥ About Andrew (his hot self): We should start with the basics, Andrew’s looks. Let’s face it, he is gorgeous and confident, with bright green eyes that sparkle, hair that always seems tousled, 2 dimples near the corners of his lips, toned arms and sculpted cheekbones, oh, and we haven’t even discussed the tattoos on his arms, much less the  tattoo down the left side of his ribs….

About Andrew (his suck you in personality): Oh Andrew, so much more than a hot brooding guy with a dirty mouth….and we know that because we were so lucky to hear his POV as the story was told. While he is confident, he still has his demons and secrets. He actually feels quite deeply although he never lets anyone in…until Camryn. Exactly how I love my book boyfriends. Oh, and he is definitely a little bit naughty just in case he wasn’t hot enough already for you. And let’s not forget Andrew has a healthy sense of snark and humor to round him out.

If his hot looks and delicious personality haven’t swayed you yet, let’s discuss the serious chemistry between Andrew and Camryn…maybe it’s me but I felt like the chemistry was palpable and pretty much jumped out of the pages and ripped off our clothes. Pure attraction, that’s right…steaming, smoking hot attraction, and at the same time full of the stuff that makes your stomach do flips when you read it. *fans self just thinking about the two of them*

 ♥ About Andrew (quotes from the man himself): But don’t just take my word for why Andrew is the hottest crush out there, take Andrew’s word…..here are some reasons why said by the man himself:


#1 Andrew can make us hot (his nawtee mouth)

“If you were to let me fuck you, you would have to let me own you.”

“A woman who knows what she wants sexually,” he licks me again, his hooded eyes always watching me, “and isn’t afraid to express it is so fucking hot, Camryn- Tell. Me. What. You. Want. Or, I won’t give it to you.”





*jumps in a cold shower*

Jag and Celeste may have exchanged quite a few emails over words we once thought were total cheese, but now are so freaking H O T.


#2 Andrew can make us think about life (we love his I don’t give a damn attitude)

“The heart always wins out over the mind. The heart, although reckless and suicidal and a masochist all on it’s own always gets it’s way. The mind may be what’s best but I don’t give a shit what my mind is telling me anymore. Right now I just want to live in the moment.”


#3 Andrew can make us swoon

“I say that I’m not into you like that, Camryn, because…,” he pauses, searching my face, looking at my lips for a moment as if deciding whether or not he should kiss them again,”…because you’re not the girl I could only sleep with once.”


#4 Andrew can make us cry!!

“I have never lived the way I lived during my short time with you. For the first time in my life, I’ve felt whole, alive, free. You were the missing piece of my soul, the breath in my lungs, the blood in my veins.”

“Don’t feel bad for not telling me that you loved me. You didn’t need to say it. I knew all along that you did”

yes, this might be a 5-kleenex story

*grabs tissues just from rereading those quotes*


That’s right, ladies. Andrew is the whole package of swoon.

Are you convinced?!?

Sealing the Kiss Deal: Of course there are a million and one more reasons to love Andrew Parrish, and trust me I could go on and on, but I won’t.  Hopefully I reminded you why you loved this book in the first place and hope you remember that Andrew is fiercely loyal and loves Camryn more than he ever thought possible. He would give up his life and his own happiness for the girl he loves. Let’s show him some support and help him win this NA Crush Tourney. I know Andrew would never ask anyone for anything, but he has me, and you,so I’m asking you to vote for him.

Even hotness like Andrew needs love from all us!

Vote for Andrew Parrish!
