The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski


The Edge of Never

Synopsis:

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?

Review:

The Edge of Never is a book I have had on my to read list for a while. I finally got around to it and...I don't really know why so many people loved this book. It wasn't really very good. I didn't absolutely hate it, but I didn't like it either. Really when I finished I didn't really feel much towards it. An odd one, but there are definitely a lot of things I didn't like.

This is the story of special snowflake Cam and Andrew. They both have issues, but they are both so much better than everyone else. Cam runs away one day after her bff's boyfriend assaulted her. When she told the bff what does bff do? Call her a slut and tell her she has always been jealous of the boyfriend. Yep, a great friend that one. But that is fine because on the bus she runs away on she meets Andrew. Perfect beautiful Andrew who takes her under his wing and teachers her how to be safe on her bus trip. Um okay...at times it read like a safety manual. Odd.

Anyways Cam is so much better than everyone else. She is depressed since her boyfriend died a year ago, but like real depressed. Not that fake depressed everyone else is. She knows what it is like and no one else really does. Neither of them want to go off to college like society wants. They want to just travel around and experience life. That is fine, I get it, but don't look down on people who have different desires than you. Some people want to go to college, even if it is what society dictates you do. That doesn't make it bad for them...Plus Cam is so deep. Instead of thinking about sex or something she thinks about the things that really matter. Like what the oce<
Andrew is...he has issues of course, but his biggest one which is never address is his crazy anger issues. I would be afraid that he would beat someone to death for looking at Cam the wrong way. You see this super macho aggression in a lot of books and usually I think am I supposed to find this hot? Am I supposed to like the fact that the guy will go overboard and fly off the handle like that? Sometimes the author writes it so I don't mind as much, but usually I just think too much. I don't want my guy beating someone else to death because they looked like they wanted me or something. I don't get it. It seems like an issue. Then if he has sex with Cam then he will own her. So they can't do that until he owns her...whatever that means. He got Cam to talk about how she wanted to try rougher sex and how he would own her and stuff, but then they didn't really do anything with that. From all the sex talk I was expecting more rough sex. But then I guess maybe Cam would be a slut. No wait, she is a special snowflake. If someone else wanted that they would be a slut, but since she is above everyone she is not. Can you tell I had a little bit of an issue with every girl being a slut? Yeah I will try and stop now. It has been a week since I read the book and it is still annoying me. Not very good.

The overall story was not that good. It seemed like not much happened, until the end when Cam finds out Andrews big secret. The end was lame lame lame lame lame. On their road trip Andrew magically cures Cam and Cam...well I didn't really care about either of them. I didn't really care what happened to either of them in the end. It was just lame. Not a very good read.

Rating: 2/5
