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?

I decided to read this book when I discovered it was newly available on Audible.com and it had been recommended by so many book blogs as having the same feeling as that of The Sea of Tranquility and Hopeless. Perhaps, due to that rating, I did not like this book as much as I thought I would. However, that being said, this is an incredible book! It is told in alternating first person POV of Andrew and Camryn. At first, I had no clue that the POV was ever going to switch from Camryn to Andrew. The first time that switch occured I was slightly frustrated. I have mentioned before that I do not always go for the retelling of a scene just to get the guy’s take. Sometimes that comes off as tedious and boring, and quite frankly, predictable. However, shortly into Andrew’s POV, I fell for him. Plain and simple. He took note of things that Camryn’s POV totally failed to mention. One thing I think I personally had an issue with in this book is the more intimate moments. While I do not have an out right aversion to the word, I really really really dislike the F word being used to convey a pleasurable thing one character might perhaps to do another character. The characters can use the F word all they want to swear, show anger, display their character traits, but when a mood is all sweet and loving and intimate and then one character drops the F bomb, it is like I am doused with a pitcher of ice water-immediate turn off. The use of that word in some of the various scenes in this book just felt wrong to me. But I was so interested in the characters and the storyline that I was able to over look it. And seriously, I know that that is MY issue. Alot of readers probably would not object at all. Overall, this was an excellent read, equipped with all the swoon worthy, heart stopping, sighing inducing, laugh out loud moments that any romance should contain. I would recommend this book to people who enjoyed On Dublin Street by Samanthan Young.
