Review - Edge of Always by J.A. Redmerski

4 Stars

Five months ago, Camryn and Andrew, both dealing with personal hardships, met on a Greyhound bus. They fell in love and proved that when two people are meant to be together, fate will find a way to make it happen.

Now, in the highly anticipated sequel to The Edge of Never, Camryn and Andrew are pursuing their love for music and living life to the fullest as they always swore to do. But when tragedy befalls them, their relationship is put to the ultimate test. As Camryn tries to numb her pain, Andrew makes a bold decision: To get their life back on track, they'll set out on another cross-country road trip. Together they find excitement, passion, adventure-and challenges they never could have anticipated.

  My thoughts: I read Edge of Always (book one) and fell completely in love with these characters. They made me laugh, they made me sob and most of all they made me wanna run away on a road trip of complete and total spontaneity. When I heard there would be a book two in this series I was a bit apprehensive. I was happy with the way book one ended and I just wanted to keep that moment alive in my mind.

  I put off reading this for a pretty long time but I finally caved and said, "Okay, suck it up! Read the dang book." I took my advice and at first I was really upset; my biggest fears about reading it were realized and everything was suddenly up in the air, emotions were everywhere, this happy ending that I thought I had gotten was tarnished. I was a mess. 

  As I continued to read, I actually found myself falling in love with them all over again. It wasn't new exactly, just different. They were different, their lives were different and that was okay. In the end I am very glad that I caved and read it. While I didn't love it the same as I did book one it was a fitting close to this two part series.
